Insulting cartoon brings skerry warning

This report says that Iran lodged a diplomatic protest against Bahrain for a cartoon that was deemed insulting to supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. A cartoon. Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi also warned countries in the region not to offend Iran’s ruling Shiite clergy, saying that
our capabilities are incomparable.
Uh huh. These would be the same capabilities used against Iraq in the First Persian Gulf War that lasted 8 years and was fought over 200 meters of territory against an army that the United States military went through in 100 hours the first time and 30 hours the second time? Those capabilities?
