Iran preparing to attack Saudi Arabia and Qatar?

Reza Kahlili - the pseudonym for a former CIA agent who acted as a spy in the Revolutionary Guards - reports that Iran is preparing to attack Saudi Arabia and Qatar if it's necessary to save Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria.
“Dozens of Iranian ballistic missiles have been preprogrammed to hit Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia,” the source said. “Qatar will also be hit at the same time as it is directly involved with the events in Syria.”

Iranian officials have increased their verbal attacks recently on Saudi Arabia, seeing the monarchy as behind the unraveling in Syria and the suppression of the Shiite uprising in Bahrain.

“A change of regime in Syria is but a delusion,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in a meeting on Sunday with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al Moallem. Salehi said Iran will fully support the Syrian regime, according to the Keyhan newspaper, which is directly under the supervision of the Iranian supreme leader.

Salehi claimed the Syrian civil war and the push for regime change are being spearheaded by Israel. “It’s surprising that the regional regimes [referring to Saudi Arabia and Qatar] have taken the same position as the Zionist regime,” Salehi said.

I agree it only makes sense and would probably be more effective than temporarily closing Hormuz (which they probably could only do for a handful of days). Also, if you look at the map of Shiite areas in Saudi Arabia they overlap with where the oil is. I have a couple of maps on my site: http://libertarian-neocon.blogspot.com/2012/02/it-might-not-be-hormuz-but-saudi-oil.html

I dont think they have to nuke the Saudis. Just a little uprising and some missiles would do the trick.

BTW: libertarian neocon, re your link, you are going to have to revise this statement!!
"conversely it seems that the Jews wandered 40 years in the desert and found the one place in the middle east without any oil)."
