Iran: We can attack U.S. interests "anywhere"

The Iranian ambassador to Russia reportedly said Wednesday that his country has the means to attack U.S. interests "anywhere in the world."

Ambassador Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi told reporters in Moscow that it would only exercise such capability if attacked by the United States, according to the Reuters news agency.

"The Americans know what kind of country Iran is. They are well aware of our people's unity," Sajjadi said. "And that's why Iran is fully able to deliver retaliatory strikes on the United States anywhere in the world."

Sajjadi also said that Iran wouldn't strike first. That conflicts with allegations made against the country in October that it initiated an assassination plot against the Saudi ambassador to the United States. Iran has denied those allegations.

Tensions between the two nations have grown increasingly tense with Iran continuing to deny that it's pursuing weapons from its nuclear program. Iran's threats to close the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil shipping lane, and to attack Israel have also contributed those tensions.


Iran threatens to hit US targets worldwide in case of war

On Wednesday the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi declared that Iran has the capabilities of carrying out military strikes on US interests around the globe.

This comes after President Obama announced the United States would freeze all Iranian assets held in the US.

The executive order which was signed on Monday was in reaction to what the US is calling deceptive practices by Iran.

"The issue of a military attack from America on the Islamic Republic of Iran has been on the agenda for several years," said Sajjadi.

The building provocation by Washington has been cornering Tehran and Sajjadi has stated that a US led attack on Iran would be like committing suicide. Sajjadi went on to say Iran would by no means attack first.

According to Sajjadi, “Even if it (US) attacks, we have a list of counter actions.”

Sajjadi's words don't seem to be empty words.

Last Thursday, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon disclosed that according to his sources, the big blast at the Iranian missile base near Tehran in November of the last year blew up a news missile system with a range of 10,000 kilometers, capable of targeting the United States.

Iran has warned the US and its allies that a military strike would be "painful" and Iran would be forced to aim their aggression on Israel and US bases in the Gulf. In addition a closure of the Strait of Hormuz would quickly follow.

The US and its allies have attempted to force Iran to shutdown their nuclear programs in fear of Iran gaining nuclear weapons and at the same time US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has gone public admitting Iran does not have nuclear weapons.

Iran has stated their nuclear programs is not for military purposes and have admitted a nuclear bomb is not in the works.

Despite Panetta’s statements Washington has not disregarded a military option. Additionally, Panetta has announced that Israel may launch a military strike on Iran within the next 90 days.However, Iranians seem defiant in the face of such threats.

“The Americans know what kind of country Iran is. They are well aware of our people’s unity,” said Sajjadi.


What a crock, Saddam thought the same and looked at what happened in Desert Storm and then in 2003, go back further in history and look at how Israel kicked the Arab's butts. I don,t believe there is a country other than Israel that is a better fighting force than US soldiers.

Amen to that Wind...a lot of these standing armies are conscripted, not a volunteer force. Big difference...
