IRAN THREATENS US FORCES IN PERSIAN GULF 

Haven't seen much of this in America's mainstream media yet...

Iran threatens to attack US forces in Gulf
The Strait Times, 20 August 2004
EXCERPT: Iranian Defence Minister Ali Shamkhani has warned that Iran might launch a pre-emptive strike against United States forces in the region to prevent an attack on its nuclear facilities.
'We will not sit (with arms folded) to wait for what others will do to us,' he told Al-Jazeera television when asked if Iran would respond to an American attack on its nuclear facilities.

'Some military commanders in Iran are convinced that preventive operations which the Americans talk about are not their monopoly.
'America is not the only one present in the region. We are also present, from Khost to Kandahar in Afghanistan. We are present in the Gulf and we can be present in Iraq,' he said.
'The US military presence (in Iraq) will not become an element of strength (for Washington) at our expense. The opposite is true, because their forces would turn into a hostage' in Iranian hands in the event of an attack, he said.

Gotta wonder how this will play out on The Rapture Index.
