The World Without Iran

During a Tehran conference called "The World without Zionism" the Iranian president said he wants to wipe Israel of the map. In the civilized world we call this a "declaration of war", so in the spirit of fair and balanced rebuttal here's my suggested targeting for IDF pre-emption.

The declaration:

Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (search) also denounced attempts to recognize Israel or normalize relations with it.


"There is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world," Ahmadinejad told students Wednesday during a Tehran conference called "The World without Zionism."

Ahmadinejad also repeated the words of the founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (search), who called for the destruction of Israel.

"As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map," said Ahmadinejad, who came to power in August.

There's no point in waiting around until Iran and its allies (UN, France and Germany) manage to nuke Israel, so here's my suggested targeting:


1. Communications Infrastructure

20-megaton EMP weapon airburst 100,000 feet over Yazd.


2. Decapitation


The mullahs will hide in the general population - use UAV track and strike

3. Tehran nuclear and missile program offices

40*200-kiloton airbursts at 10 km centers.

4. Nuclear Facilities

Bushehr nuclear reactor: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Anarak uranium mine and nuke waste disposal: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Arak heavy water production, research reactor.: 500-kiloton ground burst

Ardakan uranium mill: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Bushehr nuclear reactor: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Chalus suspected nuclear weapons development facility: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Darkhovin suspected underground nuclear weapons development facility. Five sequenced 500-kiloton ground-penetrators.

Esfahan reactors, nuclear research and uranium conversion: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Fasa nuclear research: 500-kiloton airburst.

Gchine uranium mine and mill: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Karaj nuclear research: 500-kiloton airburst.

Natanz: Uranium enrichment: 500-kiloton airburst.

Saghand uranium mines: 200-kiloton ground burst regional contaminator.

Tabriz suspected nuclear weapons research facility. 500-kiloton airburst.


5. Missile launch sites

Shiraz region: 64*200 kiloton airburst.

6. Regional Centers

Up to ten of the 30 regional capitals will survive the above. Destroy each with 200-kiloton airbursts.

That should about do it, with plenty of Israeli nukes left over for anyone else who's feeling lucky.
