Iran outraged by bogus military interview

TEHRAN, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Iran is reacting angrily to a supposed interview with an Islamic Revolution Guards commander, which authorities insist is fake.

The alleged interview with the Islamic Revolution Guards army commander appeared in the Kuwaiti Al-Rai Al-Aam newspaper, Javan newspaper reported Friday.


The commander, who said he wished to remain anonymous, was quoted as saying, "If Israel or America, or both of them, target economic and military goals of Iran, special Iranian units and the exclusive missile units that are being prepared to fight such threats, together with the air force, will automatically hit all the targets in all countries that have provided their land and bases in the Persian Gulf to the (enemy) to attack Iran, as well as countries that Iran considers its enemy."

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps see the supposedly fraudulent interview as part of a larger "Iranophobia" project by regional media. Iranian officials point out the fact that the interview surfaced immediately after the fueling of Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant commenced.
