Iran says a Pre-emptive Attack will Lead to the Destruction of Israel. According to The Associated Press, Iran's defense minister warned that an Israeli attack on Iran will lead to the collapse of the Jewish state. In one of the strongest statements from Iran, Gen. Ah-mad Va-hi-di indicated Tehran would punish Israel should it attack Iran's nuclear facilities. His comments on Press TV come as Israel has recently stepped up its verbal threats that it may attack Iran's nuclear facilities.

According to The Associated Press, an Israeli pre-emptive attack on Iran's nuclear sites could draw the U.S. into a new Mideast conflict, a prospect dreaded by a war-weary Pentagon wary of new entanglements. That could mean pressing into service the top tier of American firepower -- warplanes, warships, special operations forces and possibly airborne infantry -- with unpredictable outcomes in one of the world's most volatile regions. Ka-rim Sad-jad-pour, a Middle East specialist at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said "Israel can commence a war with Iran, but it may well take U.S. involvement to conclude it."
