The point of the drill is to showcase Iran’s military prowess. It comes in the wake of a large naval drill in February and frequent new tests of ballistic missiles.

Iran’s Defense Ministry announced on Thursday that it had launched a massive exercise involving 50 drones that are based on a US Sentinel drone the Iranians captured in 2011. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said it was the strongest exercise of its kind to date. Continue reading

IRGC Deputy Commander Salami to the U.S.: A War in the Persian Gulf Will Not Be Limited to the Region and It Will Be Impossible To Control Its Escalation

Please see the source for the video.

 

IRGC Deputy Commander Hossein Salami warned the U.S. that a war in the Persian Gulf would threaten the security of the energy routes and would jeopardize global trade in the region. This would have a “political domino effect,” said Salami, “gobbling up” the regimes in the Middle East that are dependent upon America. Salami, who was speaking in an interview on Iranian TV’s Channel 1 on August 12, further said that the U.S. is avoiding war because of its consequences and is responding to Iranian vessels in the Gulf with panic. Salami mocked the American talk about inspection of Iranian military facilities, saying that this is “one wish that will be taken by its bearers to the grave.” Iran, he said, has so many missiles that they have no space to store them.

Last month, in a number of speeches, Hossein Salami, deputy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), focused on the might of Iran’s Islamic Revolution at home and its impact on the region and on the world, and also on threats to it and to the Islamic world by the West and its agent – Sunni Saudi Arabia.

On July 4, 2016, at a Memories of the Iran-Iraq War conference, Salami attributed Islamic Iran’s steadfastness to its independence from the superpowers, to global recognition of its greatness, and to its martyrs. He said that Iran is the only country that challenges the world order and does not submit to the dictates of the superpowers. Continue reading

Iran: ‘We Welcome War With the U.S.’

As was mentioned a long time ago several times (see also HERE, HERE and HERE), when (not if) the all-out regional war commences, expect every U.S. military base in the Middle East to be a target for thousands of Iranian missiles which are well within reach. The losses would be a catastrophic blow to America even though it would likely win a prolonged war against Iran at this moment in time. Because of Iran’s mutual defense pact with Syria, expect them to get involved and just set the entire Middle East on fire. Their Hezbollah, Hamas and other terrorist proxies would also be used. Israel would suffer attacks and have to retaliate. Hundreds, if not thousands of sleeper cells who have been waiting in America for years, could likely be given the green light to carry out their attacks. Don’t forget about the economic shock effect this would have on the global economy, especially as the Strait of Hormuz would be closed and possibly the Suez Canal. None of this even includes the nuclear war scenario should Israel fear for its existence.

This is a worst case scenario that hopefully would never happen, however, it’s better to be psychologically prepared for the anticipated fallout — which is why it’s very crucial to follow events even though it’s repetitive ‘bad news’ that you don’t want to hear.

 

A senior Iranian military commander on Wednesday said the Islamic Republic would “welcome war with the U.S.” and “set fire to every military base from which a hostile U.S. plane takes off,” according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Hossein Salami threatened the U.S. during a television interview aired on Tehran’s state-run television. Continue reading

Iran general: ‘Our hands are on the trigger’ to destroy Israel

Revolutionary Guard air force chief quoted as saying his forces are ready to act as soon as they receive the order

The air force commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps was quoted by Iran’s Fars news agency as saying Tuesday that Iran’s military has its finger on the trigger to destroy Israel as soon as it receives the order to do so.

In an article headlined “IRGC Commander: Iran’s Finger on Trigger to Destroy Zionist Regime,” Fars wrote that Brigadier General Hossein Salami had declared that Iranian military commanders are prepared to attack and destroy the Zionist regime of Israel as soon as they receive such an order. “Today, we can destroy every spot which is under the Zionist regime’s control with any volume of fire power (that we want) right from here,” Fars quoted Salami as telling a conference in Tehran Tuesday on “The Islamic World’s Role in the Geometry of the World Power.” Continue reading

Iranian commander: We have targets within America

This isn’t the only warning we’ve heard about terrorist cells within the United States. They’ve had decades to set everything up through pourus borders. All they need is a green light from the Ayatollah.

For additional posts with more information on this, see here: Terrorist cells

A top commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards boasted Saturday that his forces have plans in place to attack the United States from within, should the U.S. attack the Islamic Republic.

“America, with its strategic ignorance, does not have a full understanding of the power of the Islamic Republic,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami said in a televised interview. “We have recognized America’s military strategy, and have arranged our abilities, and have identified centers in America [for attack] that will create a shock.”

Reports indicate that terrorist Hezbollah forces — allies of Iran — have infiltrated the U.S. and have mapped out targets.

“We will conduct such a blow in which they [America] will be destroyed from within,” Salami said. Continue reading
