(Persia Digest) – The Deputy Commander of the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has said that the US will never choose a military option against Iran, adding: “US aircraft carriers are in the firing line of our ballistic missiles.”
Commander Hossein Salami stated that the US is not in a military or political position to make a move against Iran: “The US can neither have a military confrontation nor a global coalition against Iran. If it decides to engage militarily with Iran, it will surely not be the winner.”
He said the Americans will never choose the military option against Iran: “The reason being the credibility of our military power. We can threaten their vital military interests, or as Trump said Iran can capture the region in twelve minutes. We are not looking to capture anything, but we are able to cut off their domination over the region in the shortest possible time.”
He continued by saying: “US aircraft carriers are in the firing line of our ballistic missiles. Their military equipment is outdated. This is why the Supreme Leader said there will be no war and no talks. This is the main strategy of the Islamic Revolution.”
Salami added: “Iran is in Syria at the invitation of its government. We have no long-term plans for a presence there. There is also no conflict between us and the Russians. What is reported in the media is false and contrary to the truth.”
