It would be a logical target if the radar station in Turkey does in fact do what they say it does:



Tehran says NATO's early warning radar station in Turkey is meant to protect Israel against Iranian missile attacks if a war breaks out with Israel.

Turkey agreed to host the radar in September as part of NATO's missile defense system.

Except it's a NATO site. Israel is not a member of NATO so it would be attacking a seperate military entity. Probably not entirely smart on their part, since it would give NATO perfect justification to retaliate.

In a related story, Iran has threatened to attack Lichtenstein, Togo, Panama, the Dominican Republic, the 92nd Street YMCA, Katz's Deli and the cast of Seinfeld if they are attacked. More on this as it develops. :rolleyes:

Katz's Deli has its own defenses. Anti-Ballistic Half-Sour Pickles and a bunker lined with potato knishes will keep it safe. :D

Rightfully so when you consider he has to rely on that guy holding him. The cat actually looks much more intelligent than the space cadet.

It looks as though Iran was just bloviating,,,,again. I guess they didn't blame Israel for the "unexplained" explosion?:confused:
