A top commander of Iran’s Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says a US war against Iran is no longer a possibility because Washington lacks the political means and international support to launch a new military campaign.
According to Press TV, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the IRGC’s second-in-command, said in a speech on Friday that Washington knows “it will be on the losing side if it ever starts a war with Iran and [this will] help further increase Iran’s influence.”
“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 were now following 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.
According to Salami, the US had also suffered major defeats in Palestine, Syria and the rest of the Middle East region.
