September 24, 2012 • 9:32AM

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh issued a war warning today unusual in its precision. As covered prominently in Israel's Ha'aretz daily from Iran's Al-Alam newspaper, Gen. Hajizadeh said: "Iran will not start any war but it could launch a pre-emptive attack if it was sure that the enemies are putting the final touches to attack it."

"We cannot imagine the Zionist regime starting a war without America's support. Therefore, in case of a war, we will get into a war with both of them and we will certainly get into a conflict with American bases.

"In that case, unpredictable and unmanageable things would happen and it could turn into a World War Three."

The Iranian general spoke as Russian national television was making the same warning
