Self-defense is spin-proof

We hear incessantly of Israel's right to defend itself, an excuse used to justify crimes against humanity.

If Israel very stupidly attacks Iran, Iran will defend itself by attacking Israel. We can expect such horrific events to be spun vehemently in the media on psyops wings, like Superman circling the earth to rotate it backwards, reversing time and thus saving Lois Lane from doom, in the hopes of insuring that people will apply a different standard to the idea of Iran defending itself than the one we've had crammed down our throats about Israel's right to defend itself. But it's the very same standard, and this isn't Hollywood. Sovereign nations have a right to defend themselves against attack. If Israel can defend itself so adamantly against Palestinian bottle-rockets, Iran can defend itself against Israel's US-taxpayer supplied state of the art military weapons. People will not be fooled by Israel's double standards, and Israel will be destroyed, as they have been graciously warned.
Iran has the capability to strike arch-foe Israel's nuclear sites firmly and will do so if it comes under attack, the head of the elite Revolutionary Guards Corps said on Saturday.

Asked by Iran's Arabic language television channel Al-Alam whether Iran has the ability to strike Israeli nuclear sites, Mohammad Ali Jafari said: "Yes, definitely we have this capability because of the advances we have made in the past two years to carry out such a task."

"We have said that all of Israel's soil is under the coverage of our missiles. We have such capability and can certainly respond to any attack" by Israel.

Jafari said Iran will give a "firm and precise" answer if attacked by Israel.

"We are not responsible for this regime and other enemies' foolishness. If they strike Iran, our answer will be firm and precise. They will have no answer when Iran bombards them and sends several of its missiles."

I don't doubt it for a second.
