Iranian general ‘welcomes’ war with US

Despite ongoing nuclear negotiations,
Iran’s military appears to anticipate
going to war against the US.

As Iran and the P5+1 negotiate a final deal
regarding the Islamic Republic’s nuclear
program and the lifting of sanctions on
Iran, a high-ranking Iranian general
declared that its forces are ready to wage
battle with the US.
In an interview on Iranian TV earlier this
month, Revolutionary Guards (IRGC)
Deputy Commander Brigadier General
Hossein Salami threatened the Americans,
saying: “We welcome war with the
Americans,” MEMRI (Middle East Media
Research Institute) reported.
“I tell the Americans again…that the age in
which political superiority is gained through
threats, intimidation and even military force
has come to an end. The Americans should
compare their past military victories over
feeble armies…with the outcome and
consequence of confronting the great of
Islamic Iran,” said the general.
The US aircraft carriers would be destroyed,
its air bases in the region burned and the
skies set ablaze, he said. “We have built our
strength for the purpose of long, extended
wars… more than for the purpose of peace,
compromise, and dialogue with them,”
Salami stressed.

The Iranian armed forces have recently
conducted several large-scale military drills,
including those specifically simulating war
with US forces.
During a naval exercise in February, the
Iranian navy fired two ballistic missiles that
blew up an Iranian-built, life-size replica of
a US aircraft carrier. The target was
completely destroyed by the missiles,
reports say.
The drill included maritime mine operations
by speedboats as well as the firing of four
coast-to-sea missiles in the strategic Persian
Gulf region and the Strait of Hormuz.
Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, RGC’s navy
commander, stated last April that “the
Americans and the entire world know that
the American navy is one of our targets,
and it will take us 50 seconds to destroy
every US warship.”

These guys should take it easy. See what a taste of power does. They all want to nuke themselves to extinction.

America's time of world power is gradually coming to an end. Nobody wants to take orders anymore

Maybe war with Iran will keep the US busy and out of Nigeria's business.

It'll get worse than you think. Those politicians don't know the dangers of a nuclear war. And those islamic nations are eager to use it just to let the world know they've got it. North Korea is another threat.

It's a time of trouble but the Americans abused their advantage. It's all part of the script. But the consequences will be terrible should USA go down. That nation feeds many generously: consider the desert nations that depend on them.

I know Iran have silently got nuclear warheads over the years, the on-going negotiation is inconsequential. America may be in problem soon with these Russia control states.

Public relations not more not less.
It is just a political statement meant to show to the Iranian people that their government did not bow to the U.S. during the nuclear deal.

Except they have some secret weapons lurking behind closed doors, or without an overt involvement by the Russians, the Iranians stand no chance against the US.

AND THAT IS A FACT!

Obviously, they're not acting alone. Russia has also been dishing out threats recently. China's alliance with Russia is a big threat (Russia alone is a strong force against the US and so is China). These countries are forming coalitions not out of cultural compatibility and genuine interest but to end the reign of their common enemy.

While humans are wired to hope for better, it's best to take the situation as serious as it is. Check out this warning by Glenn Beck:

I think i must agree with you on that. I dont think the Iranians would actually want a war with the US if they dont have something beneath the carpet, Except they are just making empty threats.

But one thing is very certain, and it is that, China and Russia's interaction is gradually but noticably moving into an alliance, and a full-fledge one for that matter. And this in turn, is not good news for the US because, before now, it has long been an American strategic play in ensuring that Russia and China are kept from each other. That is, there must be no closely knited strategic alliance between the two, except for normal bilateral engagement.

Unfortunately today, that policy seemed to have been totally neglected, or foolishly overlooked or undermined by the Obama Administration, though started by the Clinton and Bush regime; the madness in the pace at which this currrent Administration is relentlessly trying to 'give orders' to a nation like Russia, and always trying to interfer within China's sphere of influence, coupled with the plot to encicle China, has forced these nations to come together to wade off what they rightly interpreted as threat to their very existence as nations...

And the facts that some redlines are being crosseds or likely to be crossed, is raising goose pimples as regard the more-becoming realism of a THERMONUCLEAR WARFARE!
