Iranian General: U.S. Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan Are Within Iran's Firing Range

"U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are being monitored by Iran using satellites and other technology and are well within range of Iranian missiles, a top Iranian military official said.

"The Americans should realize that the 200,000 troops they have deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan are in Iran’s firing range,” Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, an advisor to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said in remarks published by Iranian newspapers Monday."

Psst? Yeah you, top Iranian military official, got a sec?

Cool. Now, maybe you haven't noticed or maybe nobody told you, but ALL OF IRAN is within range of anything we damn well please to drop on you. And those military personnel? The ones "in-range"? They, you see, are SUPPOSED to be in range. Thats sort of what they do for a living, and I'm not making this stuff up.
