Iran threatens Israel's


If the United States launches an attack on Iran, the Islamic republic will retaliate with a military strike on Israel's main nuclear facility.

Dr. Abasi, an advisor to Iran's Revolutionary Guard, said Tehran would respond to an American attack with strikes on the Dimona nuclear reactor and other strategic Israeli sites such as the port city of Haifa and the Zakhariya area.

Haifa is also home to a large concentration of chemical factories and oil refineries.

There is more. Iran is making threats it has a limited capacity to accomplish. It has also threatened to close the Straights of Hormuz. While it is possible that Iran might be able to work with Palestinians to make some type of attack, neither has shown any competence at attacking a defended position. Iran's air force could not reach Israel without Syrian assistance, which would lead to the demise of the Damacus regime.

These type of desperate threats suggest a bit of desperation on the part of the Iranians who talk more like bullies than serious people. Still, they should be taken at their word, because they are building teh case against themselves for preemption.
