- The speech entails the possibility of burning US bases.
- The US president Donald Trump made unsubstantiated claim that Russia stole US hypersonic technology.
- US bases should be on high alert due to the statement made by Iran.
On Saturday during the morning ceremony, the Iranian Lieutenant General Hussein Salami, commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps stated “The Islamic Republic will take revenge on all those who are indirectly or directly involved in the martyrdom of General Suleimani, and this is a very serious message.”
“We are honest and fair, we take fair and just revenge, so we did not shoot your soldiers in Ein al-Asad,” he said. “We will hit those who directly or indirectly participated in the death of General Soleimani,” the IRGC commander-in-chief added.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is a branch of the Iranian Armed Forces, founded after the Iranian Revolution on 22 April 1979 by order of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
It should be noted, the ceremony had commanders, officials and employees of the General staff of the armed forces and the Central command of the Corps in Tehran in attendance.
Furthermore, referring to US president Donald Trump’s claim of a “thousandfold response,” General Salami said: “The enemy is everywhere under the control of Iranian forces and will be attacked if necessary.”
Addressing Trump, the IRGC commander-in-chief stressed: “If at least one Iranian falls off the head and loses a hair, you will face a sharp response from the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps, and this is a serious threat, and the Iranians know how to prove their words in practice.”
According to him, “without the Islamic revolution in Iran, the United States would have swallowed up the world: the Islamic revolution exhausted America, and today the United States lacks political viability, is weak and incapable of transformation and failure on the battlefields.”
Stressing that it is simply irreversible to undermine the image of America, he added: “today, the share of America’s influence in the world is decreasing, because new powers are emerging, and Islam has become a powerful force due to its civilization potential.”
Of course, the statement is pure propaganda and related to the ongoing protests within US. Additionally, Trump managed to upset Russia with false claims that Russia stole USA hypersonic technology.
This is what China does, not Russia. There are many flaws in Russia, including the human rights violations and autocratic regime. Nevertheless, the stolen technology claim is unsubstantiated.
Moreover, Iran’s IRGC has threatened to “burn all US bases” in the region. Iranian forces can “burn down all us bases” in the region, said the commander of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps, Hossein Salami.
“If the Americans want to fight with us, they must be in the region, “RIA Novosti quoted him as saying, referring to ISNA. He stressed that the Americans “cannot wage war” with Iran, ” being outside the region.”
Salami said US forces are “everywhere under the surveillance and targeting” of Iran when ” deployed in the region.” “We are able to simultaneously burn all their interests and bases in the region, we can capture all American bases, “he said, adding that Iran can”clean up the region.”
Salami said that the operation, which targeted us bases in Iraq, including ain al-Assad, was not yet revenge for the death of Soleimani, it only restored the psychological balance. the US, according to the commander of the IRGC, should pay for the death of the Iranian General, which they have not yet done.
Overall, the killing of the Soleimani was a bold move that comes with consequences. Qasem Soleimani was an Iranian major general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and, from 1998 until his death in 2020, commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for extraterritorial military and clandestine operations.
In conclusion, US needs to protects its troops, perhaps it is time to to enhance measures against Iran. Such statements are dangerous and should not be taken lightly. Iran has horrid regime.
