“Islam’s leaders have long ago prepared us for a great and decisive confrontation.” He sounds like some kind of Islamophobe. In any case, he hardly sounds like one of those “moderates” whom the mainstream media tell us are now in power in Iran. Jafari has previously said that if Israel attacks Iran’s nuclear program, “nothing will remain” of Israel.

“Iran’s Offensive Power to Stun US: IRGC Commander,” from Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, January 25:

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in reaction to threatening remarks by the US secretary of state underlined that the United States will be stunned by the offensive power of the Islamic Republic if it resorts to military action against Iran.

“The US will never understand the Islamic Republic of Iran’s offensive scope,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said.

Speaking Saturday in an exclusive interview with the Tasnim News Agency on the sidelines of a visit to an exhibition showcasing the capabilities of Imam Hussein (AS) University in Tehran, Jafari said the US threats offer the best opportunity for the “revolutionary Islam” as “Islam’s leaders have long ago prepared us for a great and decisive confrontation”.

The IRGC commander referred to the US administration’s massive debts and its inability to resolve the country’s economic problems, and said it seems unlikely that “wise men” in the US administration would allow the “ludicrous” military option to be employed.

Jafari further noted that political experts and security observers in the US consider the military option against Iran to be good “only on the table” but believe that using the option “would not be in the interest of the US national security.”

“The sun of America’s imperialist civilization is nearing its setting,” Major General Jafari said, warning that Washington’s officials will expedite the collapse of their civilization by repeating the implementation of “failed strategies” like using military force.

US Secretary of State John Kerry in an interview on Thursday said that the military option was still on the table if Iran did not live up to its nuclear commitments under the Geneva deal.

Tehran and the G5+1 (also known as P5+1 or E3+3) had on November 24 reached a six-month deal on Iran’s nuclear program. The breakthrough deal, which has come into effect since January 20, stipulates that over the course of six months, Iran and the six countries will draw up a comprehensive nuclear deal which will lead to a lifting of the whole sanctions on Iran.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.

  1. Soo..this is what happens when you relax sanctions. . People don’t talk like this when their daily diet consist of “cat food” and watered down kool Aid. Our elected people (not leaders) should learn a lesson..Eggs belong on your plate with Bacon, not on your face..Seems like we have a crow dinner coming up.

      That’s right, Cold War Veteran. Iran had its evil agenda all along. They never intended to stop building a nuclear bomb. The fact that we didn’t insist that Pastor Saeed be released before one sanction was removed just shows that obviously there is some agenda by our leaders also. This is sad.

    2. Possibly more than one! Obama throws out military solutions to problems while defunding the military…makes sense to me. I have never seen a president that seems to think Congress is there for looks and to do as he tells them to. Granted much of Congress IS worthless, but they are in place to perform a needed function, it’s called checks and balances. Obama is determined to have it all his way, he will simply issue executive orders to get what he wants thereby making illegal end-runs around Congress. Why oh why do people not see what this man is doing??? Many people today bring new meaning to the word naive.

        I hear what you are saying, Greg. I can’t understand the fact that people aren’t up in arms over what this President is doing. I would think that defunding the military and bringing down our nuclear weapons is going to prove fatal. All I can think is that the enemy has most people blinded. He is, after all, orchestrating Iran and every other one of those restricted nations who want to destroy us.

      I believe that they have more than that, Wulfrano. They have an agenda to wipe America and Israel off the map. They are working hard to get the nuclear weapons with which to do that.

      Rule number one in warfare, Wulfrano, is never underestimate your enemy.

          That’s right, Wulfrano. Iran is a time bomb. What they will do is anybody’s guess. I just know that as far as Israel, they do NOT have the power to destroy her. God will stand with her and defeat her enemies. Iranian leaders obviously don’t know the true Jehovah God of the bible.

          1. And with them “being the bomb”, it wouldn’t take much to pull the trigger. Hindsight being 20/20, you gotta think that someone in DC has gotta feel pretty stupid about the whole thing. But then again, if you are trying to sabotage the country then you would conspire with the enemy..smh..
