Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari lashed out at US Secretary of State John Kerryˈs recent war rhetoric against Iran.
Major General Jafariˈs remarks came in reaction to Kerry who said on January 23 that “the military option that is available to the United States is ready and prepared to do what it would have to do” if Iran enriches uranium beyond five percent purity.
ˈYou could never understand the extent of the invasive capacity of the Islamic Republic of Iran,ˈ Major General Jafari said on Saturday.
ˈMr. Kerry must know that direct battle with the US is the biggest dream of pious and revolutionary people across the world. Your threats offer our revolutionary people the best opportunity,” said Jafari.
He added that “wise politicians” in the United States are unlikely to let the “ridiculous military option” remain on the table.
Jafari recommended Kerry to stop repeating “bankrupt strategies like the use of military option” in order to avoid the accelerated collapse of the US civilization.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Leader was saying...pretty much the same thing.
Our top officials should pay attention to what [the West] is saying, because they smile and say that they are interested in negotiations, but at the same time, they say that all options are on the table.
Well, what exactly are these options? What kind of action – or mistake – could they possibly take against Iran? If they are serious, they should exercise some self-restraint. All those people who utter this kind of nonsense must be stopped.
Along comes some wealthy American statesman, who makes a mistake and says: "We should drop a nuclear bomb on some Iranian desert." He makes threats and so on. Such a man should be punched in the mouth and crushed!
