and, unfortunately, his ranting is spread by the state controlled media in Iran:

A top Iranian commander has claimed that the Islamic Republic had the ability to destroy Israel “in less than eight minutes,” according to comments offered on the same day that Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei declared that Iran would continue to build its ballistic missile arsenal in defiance of U.S. demands.

So he says.

Unfortunately for him, Israel has nukes and he doesn't. The US also has nukes and the ICBMs to deliver them, if necessary.

But, since his ranting consists of empty words, it won't be necessary.

While Israel has nearly perfected the art of defending itself against rockets, I wonder how they're coming along in their development of a system to deal with long range ballistic threats. That's going to be a very real concern for them within the next couple decades.

Are you sure that he doesn't have nukes? Obama says he doesn't, but he says all sorts of stuff.

If he did, he'd be holding them up for all to see and ranting about destroying the Great Satan. No, thanks to the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by five nations all more powerful than Iran, it doesn't currently have nukes.

I doubt that very much. That would stop the flow of goods in and out of his country.
