Via the BBC, it seems Mohammad Hejazi, deputy head of Iran’s armed forces told the Iranian Fars news agency:
“Our strategy now is that if we feel our enemies want to endanger Iran’s national interests, and want to decide to do that, we will act without waiting for their actions,” Mr Hejazi told Fars.
Pre-emptive attacks, he means, but what did the West really expect after a decade and a half of pre-meditated aggressive actions? Still, this report seems to confirm that Iran, like the West, is galloping towards the sound of guns in fine old Light Brigade style.
Meanwhile, IAEA inspectors have again been denied access to Parchin military base where they wished to investigate reports Iran had conducted experiments in making explosive trigger nuclear implosion devices.
