Could the U.S. find itself in war with Iran? A top commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards has vowed that methods have already been implemented to attack the U.S. with weapons if they believe American forces are attacking the Islamic Republic. Other recent reports indicate that Hezbollah forces have quietly made their way onto American soil and are beginning to map out plans for possible terrorist attacks.
“We will conduct such a blow in which they [America] will be destroyed from within,” said Gen. Hossein Salami. “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.” The commander said that the U.S. was in no position to engage in another war given its current economy and promised “devastating consequences” if this happened.
This is the second threat of a possible attack on U.S. soil made by the Revolutionary Guards this year. Two weeks ago, chief commander of the Guards, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Jafari responded to comments made by John Kerry that “all options are on the table” if Iran did not comply with Geneva on its nuclear program.
Your threats to revolutionary Islam are the best opportunity. “Muslim leaders for years have been preparing us for a decisive battle.… Do you know how many thousands of revolutionary Muslims at the heart of the Islamic revolutionary groups around the world are awaiting for you to take this [military] option from the table into action?”
President Barack Obama has yet to address the threats made by Salami or Jafari.
