Threatening Iran ‘more of a ridiculous joke than reality’
Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces has said boasting of threatening Iran right in the Persian Gulf seems to be ludicrous.
Maj. Gen. Mohammad Hossein Bagheri who was speaking in an anniversary in Tehran on Thursday said that Iran’s missile capabilities would rule out any enemies’ possible invasion and that they would no longer decide about what Iran should do in its foreign policy; “any war with the Islamic Republic of Iran, if started, would have no end at sight,” he added.
On Trump’s election, Bagheri lampooned his remarks about Iran during his presidential campaign as mere joke; “the empty saber-rattling of the president-elect of the US is ludicrous; he has made claims which would not be implemented by US navy in the Persian Gulf and Iran would not be challenged in its own waters, since we are the major dominant force in the Persian Gulf; today, our powers is manifest in other fronts, including in Iraq and Syria, and they should recalibrate their evaluation of Iran’s military might,” he asserted.
On Resistance front, chief of staff believed the spiritual hegemony of Iran is in such magnitude that even without boots, Resistance enjoy the spiritual ballast coming from Iran; he also added that Syria, by Iran’s help, produced missiles in Aleppo which targeted Israeli cities in the Occupied Territories during 33-Day war of 2006; now the Islamic Republic of Iran’s missile capabilities surpass its capabilities in Sacred Defense years; no drastic preparations would emulate the speed and precision of our missiles when they are fired,” he concluded.
