Missiles being launched at Israelis is nothing new.
However, yesterday's Jerusalem Post: Online had an article detailing a different threat: different rockets, different foe.
Six hundred Iranian Shihab-3 missiles are pointed at targets throughout Israel, and will be launched if either Iran or Syria are attacked, an Iranian website affiliated with the regime reported on Monday.
"Iran will shoot at Israel 600 missiles if it is attacked," the Iranian news website, Assar Iran, reported. "600 missiles will only be the first reaction."
According to the report, dozens of locations throughout Iraq, which are being used by the US Army, have also been targeted.
The Shihab missile has a range of 1,300 km, and can reach anywhere in Israel.
This sounds a bit like Sadaam Hussein's threat to rain fire and destruction down on both U.S. invading forces and Israel, during the build-up prior to both US-Iraqi Wars. The article continues:
On Sunday, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said that the nuclear Iranian crisis forces the world "to prepare for the worst," and said that in this case it "is war."
Kouchner emphasized, however, that negotiations should still be the preferred course of action.
Kouchner, quoted by French daily Le Figaro, added that "Iran does whatever it pleases in Iraq ... one cannot find in the entire world a crisis greater than this one."
With even the French taking a realistic view of the Iranian threat, the Iranians will soon attempt to stall for more time by offering negotiations leading to nowhere--except a nuclear Islamic Republic.
The sooner the Iranian nuclear threat is ended, the better. Take 'em out before there's 700.
