Iranian: Retaliation if Israel Attacks

If Israel or the U.S. attacks Iran, as will likely occur, although it is unclear who will do the bombing, Iran will retaliate, and that could lead to world conflict. Are you ready for that? I'm not:
The deputy commander of Iran's air force said Wednesday that plans have been drawn up to bomb Israel if the Jewish state attacks Iran, according to the semiofficial Fars news agency.

The announcement came amid rising tensions in the region with the United States calling for a new round of U.N. sanctions against Iran over its disputed nuclear program and Israeli planes having recently overflown, and perhaps even attacked, Iranian ally Syria.

And attack on Israel would mean an attack by the U.S. on Iran. The United States government treats Israel as if it were the 51st State:
Iran has said in the past that Israel would be Iran's first retaliatory target if attacked by the United States, but Alavi's comments were the first word of specific contingency plans for striking back on Israel.

Bottomline: a military attack on Iran would be catastrophic folly.
