Top commander rejects the possibility of war against Iran
Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the IRGC’s second-in-command said that US has lost its international support to wage a new military campaign.
Iran Press/Iran: A top commander of Iran's Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami has rejected the possibility of US war against Iran and added that Washington lacks the political means and international support to launch a new military campaign.
Talking to IRIB News Agency in Semnan province on Friday, He said that Washington knows "it will be on the losing side if it starts a war with Iran and [this will] help further increase of Iran's influence adding that Iran's response to the enemy will be crucial and that enemy will be regretful. "
"The US military is incapable of engaging us in a battle and the American economy wouldn't be able to support the war either," Salami added.
He said the IRGC's recent missile attack against Iraq-based terrorists was a clear warning to Iran's adversaries that the Islamic Republic's response to slightest violations of its sovereignty would be decisive.
The top commander argued that all US plans to isolate Iran had backfired and many countries now follow Iran's model of resistance against the US, Israel and other "bullying powers."
"The Iranian nation defeated the US when it blocked America's 'New Middle East' project," Salami said. The Iranian nation, he added, also caused America's plan to retake control over the Islamic world to fail.
"The US had also suffered major defeats in Palestine, Syria and the rest of the Middle East region",the Brigadier General concluded.
