Top Iranian Commander: Readying for Major War With US


“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.

    The Iranian navy would be destoyed within days as would its airforce.

      How about within minutes, as long as the politicians stay out of the way.

    Middle eastern culture is all about bragging your head off, exaggeration, boasting, puffery… remember “…the mother of all battles…”?

    AKA “full of shit”

    The Iranians don’t do war directly, only through proxies.

    Just once I’d like to unleash our armies against these barbarians without tying the hands of our soldiers behind their backs.

    Hahaha, these idiots fought a war of attrition with Iraq for over ten years with no clear winner. The US alone would wipe their military out within two weeks. Of course, there are all the sleeper cells and terrorists they have waiting to do their bidding but as a regime they would be decimated very quickly and the Ayatolla would be hiding in the same pit in the ground that Saddam was in.

    Arabs & Persians can’t fight. They bluster and strut. Their threats are a joke.

    They (and their boot licking allies in the western press) make a big deal about how Afghanistan is the “graveyard of empires”.
    But even there it isn’t fighting prowess of ragheads but rather a distaste for policing a hopeless, worthless slum that causes occupiers to withdraw.

    IRAN: We will go to war with Israel (since they seek out its destruction), we will go to war with Saudi Arabia (since Iranians are majority Shiite’s while Saudi Arabia is a majority Sunni), we will go to war with America (for they believe America is the great Satan). Of all the the potential nations they have threatened to go to war with they continue to ignore the only actual threat to them and that is ISIS. Only a fool would pick a fight with a potential enemy they know they can not win. Iran is not only a nation controlled by religious fanatics but fools.

    Iran has been making these threats for years, but when the chips are down, they can’t defeat ragtag Syrian rebels even with Russian military support.
