Iran threatens to hit the Strait of Hormuz and the U.S. bases and Israel

It seems that there are new threats in the atmosphere of the Middle East now where there are demonstrations raging in every day

There are incidents of violence because of the film offending the Prophet

I have threatened the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, said Sunday that his country would hit the Strait of Hormuz and U.S. bases in the Middle East and "Israel" if attacked.

Jafari said in a rare press conference in Tehran that he believed that Iran will emerge from the Non-Proliferation Treaty if nuclear targeted military action.

True, we hear such statements often

And the possibility of more realistic now

But what about the reaction of Western countries and America?

I started more than thirty countries, led by the United States the largest naval exercises to clear mines in the Gulf to confront Iran, and in what can be considered as a clear warning to Tehran, which has renewed its threats to close the Strait of Hormuz.

Said Lt. Greg Rrileson of the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet based in Bahrain, told AFP Monday that "it was the first naval exercises taking place on an international scale in this region, it is also the most important."

So there is a cold war between these political parties

But the new statements of Iranian officials is a reference to the relationship between America and Israel

He said Iranian leadership that Tehran believes that Israel is trying in vain to push the U.S. to participate in military action against Iranian nuclear facilities.

He said: "I do not think that this attack could be launched without U.S. permission."

However, he said that if he hit the U.S. aircraft or missiles Iran "will not be nothing left of Israel in view of the size."
