CAIRO, Egypt - Iran's top military commander said Saturday that his forces would retaliate against American military bases in the Persian Gulf if they are involved in any possible future attack on Iran.
But he assured Arab Gulf countries — some of whom are home to U.S. military bases — that only American forces would come under counterattack.
"We realize that there is worry among neighboring countries — Muslim countries whose lands host U.S. military stations," Jaafari said. He spoke in Farsi, which the network dubbed over in Arabic.

That just makes sense. If we did attack Iran, I'm pretty certain that they would try to launch a strike against US bases in the Gulf. Really doesn't take any sort of War College tactical genius to figure out that.
