As was mentioned a long time ago several times (see also HERE, HERE and HERE), when (not if) the all-out regional war commences, expect every U.S. military base in the Middle East to be a target for thousands of Iranian missiles which are well within reach. The losses would be a catastrophic blow to America even though it would likely win a prolonged war against Iran at this moment in time. Because of Iran’s mutual defense pact with Syria, expect them to get involved and just set the entire Middle East on fire. Their Hezbollah, Hamas and other terrorist proxies would also be used. Israel would suffer attacks and have to retaliate. Hundreds, if not thousands of sleeper cells who have been waiting in America for years, could likely be given the green light to carry out their attacks. Don’t forget about the economic shock effect this would have on the global economy, especially as the Strait of Hormuz would be closed and possibly the Suez Canal. None of this even includes the nuclear war scenario should Israel fear for its existence.
This is a worst case scenario that hopefully would never happen, however, it’s better to be psychologically prepared for the anticipated fallout — which is why it’s very crucial to follow events even though it’s repetitive ‘bad news’ that you don’t want to hear.
A senior Iranian military commander on Wednesday said the Islamic Republic would “welcome war with the U.S.” and “set fire to every military base from which a hostile U.S. plane takes off,” according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Hossein Salami threatened the U.S. during a television interview aired on Tehran’s state-run television.
“We have prepared ourselves for the most dangerous scenarios and this is no big deal and is simple to digest for us; we welcome war with the U.S. as we do believe that it will be the scene for our success to display the real potentials of our power,” Salami was quoted as saying by the Fars News Agency.
…“We warn their pilots that their first flight (to target Iran) will be their last one and no one will be allowed to go back safe and sound and they should call their flights as their last flight,” the IRGC leader was quoted as saying.
