Iran pledges retaliation against Turkey.


The potential for a major regional war just increased as Iran pledged retaliation against Turkey. Presently Turkey is sponsoring rebels in a Syrian civil war and has threatened to invade Syria. Iran and Syria are military allies and both are presently being threatened with attack by Obama and Hillary.

Iran has also threatened to pummel oil refineries and ports along the coast of Saudi Arabia if it is attacked. Saudi Arabia is expected to allow the US and Israel to use it’s airspace in any strike against Iran.

A senior commander of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard says the country will target NATO’s missile defense shield in Turkey if the U.S.¬ or Israel attacks the Islamic Republic.

Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Guards’ aerospace division, is quoted by the semiofficial Mehr news agency as saying the warning is part of a new defense strategy to counter what it sees as an increase in threats from the U.S.¬ and Israel.

He says Iran will now respond to threats with threats rather than a defensive position.

Tehran says NATO’s early warning radar station in Turkey is meant to protect Israel against Iranian missile attacks if a war breaks out with Israel.

Turkey agreed to host the radar in September as part of NATO’s missile defense system.

Earlier Saturday, another Iranian defense official threatened retaliation against Israel if any of its nuclear or security sites are attacked.
