    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 most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    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.

    What? Iran "threatened? STOP the presses! Now THIS is news.

    I'm willing to sacrifice the cast of Seinfeld, but not Katz's Deli!

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