Iranian Commander: Iran Has Targets Within the United States Ready for War

by Steven Ahle
Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, top commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards boasted that Iran already has targets picked out in the United States to hit in case hostilities should break out.  Could that be what is behind all the incursions on water supplies by Muslims over the past year?

“America, with its strategic ignorance, does not have a full understanding of the power of the Islamic Republic.  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.”

“We will conduct such a blow in which they [America] will be destroyed from within.”

These comments come on the heels of similar remarks made by another high-ranking member of the Revolutionary Guard, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Jafari.  His comments were directed to Secretary of State John Kerry.

“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?”

Salami’s comments went even further:

“All operational bases of the enemy in the region in whatever capacity and location are within our firepower.  The American military option does not make a difference for us, and they can use this option, but they will have to accept the responsibility of devastating consequences.”

“The current has changed for the Americans so much so that they invest [by invading Iraq] and others [Iran] benefit.”

Salami says that the US cannot get involved in Syria because we are not equipped for that kind of war.

“The Americans cannot even conduct a military operation there.  [T]he conditions and the factors that facilitate the exercise of military power for them have for years been destroyed and today they (the Americans) are in an erosion of political, cultural and military power.”

The general claims that there thousands of brigades of fighters in the Islamic Republic and outside of it just waiting for the opportunity to battle our troops.
