Iran Threatens Missile Attacks on U.S. Targets

[Telegraph-UK] David Blair - Iran threatened to fire long-range missiles at American targets in the Middle East Monday. "If the United States is saying that they have identified 2,000 targets in Iran, then what is certain is that it is the Americans who are all around Iran and are equally our targets," Gen Mohammed Hassan Koussechi, a senior commander of the Revolutionary Guard, told the official IRNA news agency. "We have reached capacities that allow us to hit the enemy at a range of 2,000 kilometers," he added. Dubai, filled with Western companies, tourists and expatriates, is only 105 miles away. Other potential targets include the oilfields in Saudi Arabia's Eastern province, the headquarters of America's Central Command in Qatar, and the main harbor of the U.S. Fifth Fleet in Bahrain.
