    While dismissing the sanctions threat, Iran has also warned against any military steps against its nuclear program.

    After several warnings that it would hit back at Israel if attacked from there, Iran's military chief said Thursday he would target U.S. forces stationed in the Middle East if Washington attacked.

    "If America presents Iran with a serious threat and undertakes any measure against Iran, none of the American soldiers who are currently in the region would go back to America alive," Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.

    U.S. troops are engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan, both of which border Iran.

    Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a military ceremony, Firouzabadi said a strike on Iran would also put oil supplies at risk.

    Brings up an interesting question. What exactly constitutes an act of war?

    Time for Obama to bend over, as Ahmadinejad clearly isn't getting enough.

    So basically if we attack them, they'll attack us back. Am I supposed to be surprised? Shocked?

    He said threat, not attack. Learn to read. Obama has announced we will not use nukes so now Iran is feeling even braver.

    Hmmm........ Seems only a short time ago, we had a dimbulb in the White House making noises about attacking Iran on the basis of a percieved threat. We did that in Iraq, and that worked out so well, didn't it?

    Iran will not attack us unless we first attack them. More rhetoric to try to hold together a nation that is on the edge of revolt. What we should be doing is facilitating communications within Iran, so there people can work with each other. And, otherwise, stay out of this mess.

    If the Mad Hatter keeps clamping down, there will be blood in the streets, no reason for any of it to be American.

    LOL, spoken like a a true naive leftist. If we attack them, they say they will attack us back!

    LOL, in what capacity?
    (1) Through the air: They have a tiny and outdated airforce mostly made of pre-'79 US jets.
    (2) There grand offensive missiles? LOL, this is a paper dragon. There offensive missiles are not sophisticated. Also in any US military strike, we would also take out their missile capabilities, which again aren't much.
    (3) Ground forces? LOL, are they really going to invade Iraq and Afghanistan? They would be no match for even Poland, what makes ANYONE feel they would be a match for the US and NATO!

    There only option is guerrilla terrorist attacks!
