Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari has said Iran is preparing for all-out war with the US and its allies, and has vowed Iran will continue advancing and testing its ballistic missile program.
Speaking at a gathering of senior IRGC commanders in Tehran Tuesday, Jafari declared that the US “would not be able to do a damned thing” in the face of Iranian advances, according to official Tasnim news agency.
“For years, we have been building power on the presumption of a widespread war with the US and its allies, and have developed all our capacities and capabilities for decisive victories over such enemies,” Jafari said.
“Regimes like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and their peers are symbols of modern political underdevelopment, and the IRGC… has made preparations for response to their rudeness and stupid behavior, which stems from (their) reliance on the US power,” he stated.
The IRGC, the primary military force in Iran and a major political player as well, is tasked with both protecting and exporting Iran’s Islamic revolution. Its elite Qods Force has been deployed extensively throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, including in Syria, where Iranian fighters are helping to prop up dictator Bashar al-Assad, as well as in neighboring Iraq.
