General Baqeri referred to the US escape from Afghanistan, the beginning of the evacuation of American troops from Iraq and parts of Syria, the reduction of advanced US air defense equipment along the Persian Gulf, and the transfer of US naval forces to territories in Southern China as signs of the shift of power in the world.
“We thank God that after a difficult period of past threats, today we are witnessing a period of decline and weakness of the criminal US and its regional followers,” he said.
“Of course, none of these means a decrease of threats or normalization of the situation in relation to the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” General Baqeri said.
The top Iranian general also warned that although direct military action has become difficult for Washington and Tel Aviv, they will never abandon conspiring against the Islamic establishment and will always create problems for Iran and its regional partners.
He stressed that the current situation requires the Armed Forces to remain vigilant more than ever.
“When the threats are obvious, clear, and direct, the method of dealing with them is a little simpler and smoother, but when the threats are accompanied by various complexities and layers, naturally our task is more serious and heavy,” General Baqeri noted.
“Therefore, our constant duty in the face of threats is to monitor the situation by intelligence services, improve the readiness and operational capability of all command and lower levels, and be prepared for any eventuality,” he said.
Meantime, Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali said on Tuesday that the Americans and the Israelis are currently in their weakest possible position as they have lost their cohesion.
“Today, the most vulnerable face of the United States and the Zionist regime is in front of us,” he told a press conference.
General Jalali further said that the Zionist regime, in full coordination with the Americans, has adopted a strategy of all-out pressure to the brink of war.
“Cyber warfare, acts of sabotage, infiltration, and terrorist operations are what the Zionist regime has defined as operations for itself. We are witnessing a confrontation with the Zionist regime at sea, on the ground, and in technical and industrial sectors,” he added.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had said last November that the current situation in the US is a completely clear presentation of the nature of liberal democracy, adding that the decline of the US regime is an absolute fact.
Ayatollah Khamenei wrote on his Twitter page that the developments on the ground and what the Americans themselves say about the presidential elections is a manifestation of the real image of liberal democracy.
The Supreme Leader reiterated that, apart from the winner of the election, one thing is quite evident and that is the inevitable decline of the US in various aspects.
