WANA (Feb 25) – The rhetoric of the Western and Israeli sides has seriously escalated against Iran, and Iranian generals do not leave threats unanswered and show their sharp teeth to their enemies by unveiling new military equipment.


Tehran still believes that Israel is too weak to enter into a real war. The rhetoric and the threat of a military attack on Iran, which is raised by Netanyahu these days, has been raised for years. Netanyahu recently said that “the best way to prevent Iran from going nuclear is a serious military threat.” . Loud and noisy voices that have never found the courage to act during the past decades.

General Salami, the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, boasted his country’s military capabilities to the enemies at the end of the “Jihadist” festival. Salami said that once we were fighting in Karkheh (Khuzestan province), but today we are next to the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. “Today, the enemy has to enter the field directly and spend 7 trillion dollars.” Salami said.


The IRGC commander believes that the enemy (America and Israel) has lost the initiative because wherever they are, there are a group against them.


Iranian politicians are getting closer to the idea that dialogue and following the diplomatic path will take them further from achieving results, and therefore they believe that the West understands the language of force more than the soft language. “One cannot speak to the arrogant except with the language of power, because the enemy does not accept the power of logic, but accepts the logic of power. Today, you can see that the influence of our power is global… You see, the former US foreign minister says, “I have nightmares since the terror of Gen. Soleimani” Salami added.
