War on Iran will expose Israel to full-scale threat: IRGC chief

Press TV – August 8, 2019

The chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the United States is not interested in waging war on Iran since it knows that any such confrontation would expose the Israeli regime to “full-scale threat.”

Major General Hossein Salami said on Thursday that Iran’s enemies could not keep any war with Iran confined to the country and would face “an eruption of war and fire and danger everywhere.”

Salami highlighted the growing power of the anti-Israel resistance front in the region, including Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, saying, “The enemy is well aware that any new war may expose the Zionist regime to full-scale threat and irreversible collapse.”

“A number of US allies in the region would once encourage the US to wage war [on Iran] but later realized that a war with Iran would threaten their political systems, so they kept silent,” the commander added.

“I am certain that the Zionists and [the US’s] regional allies have no interest in war because they know the geographical scale of that war would be expansive and they know the result [of such a war],” he said.

Under the administration of President Donald Trump, the US has taken an increasingly hostile approach toward Iran. It has unilaterally pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, imposed rounds of sanctions against Tehran, and ordered the accelerated dispatch of an aircraft carrier to the region to counter an alleged threat from Iran.

Iran says it poses no threat to any country but will defend itself if attacked.

  1. The Israeli success in maneuvering the United States to do its bidding in the middle east must be recognized by the American people.

    The successful infiltration of Israeli operatives, emissaries and the like, into the executive branch continues; it is obvious. Being such, that mentality has become, has taken hold of it. America is actively conducting an increasing military presence in the middle east.

    Who benefits?

    The successful Zionist orientation has infiltrated the legislative branch of American government. Not only is money given to Israel, now laws are being placed upon Americans to prevent them from exercising one after another of their freedoms which were guaranteed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    If these shackles are not recognized and become accepted, then America will be ruled by a foreign country which is…

    not an ally. It is the opposite.
