IRGC chief: We are on cusp of full-scale confrontation

Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards chief, said on Wednesday: “We are on the cusp of a full-scale confrontation with the enemy,” the Fars news agency reported. “This moment in history, because the enemy has stepped into the field of confrontation with us with all the possible capacity, is the most decisive moment of the Islamic revolution.”

    That (so-called “general”) Salami is best: sliced and sauteed, with favorite Persian condiments…

    Just barking dogs.
    If the one would have power the one would fake a de.escalation and after the move has been bought strike fatally.

      I would much prefer the IDF and American armies take care of this together. It would be short and decisive. Partnering with Arabs has never worked.

    You would think the Mullahs would know enough to stay in their box and stretch their head towels around their mouths when facing the most powerful military of all time. I don’t think they have a full grasp of the military power of the United States. Perhaps their towels are wrapped too tight around their ugly- deformed heads and cut off the blood supply to their imbecilic brains.

        Well, Fidel..Jack is definitely correct about what strength iran is facing. Let’s hope its doesn’t get out of hand. Its not going to end well, but its fair to say iran will come off the worse. Especially if they were to sink an aircraft carrier. My God can you imagine what will happen then?!

    Looks like war is approaching, Iran and its allies will be soundly defeated , trump peace plan Will be imposed on the surrender of hostilities by all parties. Treaty signed , new temple will be built and within 3 or 4 years the treaty will fail and all hostilities will resume culminating in the final battle of Armageddon. Isreal will only survive this last battle as their masia will return then and end the hostilities forever. This is all in the bible, check it out

      what you say is correct but in prophecy america will turn away on Israel and that will be the end of america and if you listen to the democrat’s who are becoming anti-Israel..when they get control they will proceed to switch sides and ally with palestinian’s…then the beginning of the end…Israel will be encircle by enemies with only a miracle to save them and the world in general..after america falls it’ll be like the dark ages all over except much worse.

        Jake, will America abandon Israel or will something catastrophic happen to the US that they can’t help. Ezekiels prophecy mentions the UK bailing but nothing about the states

          I can say for sure that America will protect the woman (Israel) at the battle of Armageddon. I cannot prove…yet…that there is a lull in the relationship. (Although, I find it unlikely we will abandon Israel). What I know for sure is… Armageddon will happen 7 years after the peace deal is signed(by the Antichrist). And that Armageddon and the Euphrates River war coming soon…are two different wars. Alot will happen between now and Armageddon. Including a falling away by Israel. And America also is in a rapid moral decline as we speak. I think tough losses are to be expected on both sides…but, In the end we will be strong enough to protect Israel. Of course we will have some help from Jesus…but, not until the last minute. Hope that clears up some things.

            For those who don’t know of it…check it out Revelations 9 vs. 13-21
            Just read all of chapter 9 really…but, you will see the details of the coming Euphrates war. And then look at some middle East news…it should make you want to watch the current events unfolding before us. Each Bible version is a little different…but, all I’ve looked at pretty much say the same thing…1/3 of mankind is about to be killed in this war…so, read for yourselves on your own time…and hope for the best.

          My apologies to you…when you said Jake…I thought you were asking me. I didn’t realize there was a Jake and a Jacob. Sorry about that. But, hopefully we are all on the same side anyways.

          The Bible says to resist temptation.

          I think you should resist the temptation of reading current events into prophecy.

          Prophecy certainly may have been written by people with connections to the higher worlds and be filled with useful truths for us. But they are full of symbolism that you likely only pretend to understand. Such pretention is a form of arrogance that violates Biblical edicts.

          Furthermore, prophecy contains warnings about what could happen. They are not fixed events that cannot be changed. That is true for both positive and negative appearing look-sees into the future. Changing our behavior toward the better brings about the positive or undoes the visions of negative consequences.

          The Creator indeed may be beyond the limits of time and “sees” what will happen. You and I are not at such a level, even if we can look back in history and feel confident that this or that prophecy came true.

            rubbish. prophesies are 100% fact and the prophets saw the events which they depict. prophesies are part and parcel of the fabric of reality, like gravity.

            I understand where you are coming from. But, I respectfully disagree with some of it. God instructs us to be “awake”. And to “not be asleep”. the things written for the endtimes were not for previous generations, they were for us. That is why they haven’t been able to be understood until now. And no, we obviously don’t know everything or exact moments when things will happen. But, He does give several timelines of which we can go by and take to the bank so to speak. That is why current events are exciting to me. Because I see it unfolding…and many people are asleep…and don’t see it or care. But, we are in exciting times for sure.

    “The most decisive moment of the Islamic revolution” actually happened 66 years ago, in 1953. Google “Operation Ajax”. The worst thing ever to happen to Iran-Israel relations. Be wise, remember history.

    Two things: First, some prophecies seem to suggest that the United States will betray Israel. Prophecy is a serious affair. The USA is considered more-or-less the high point of a democratic republic; it is also a very large nation. Very democratic-for the most part. Therefore, it is essential that the USA betray Israel, or prophecy wouldn’t mean a whole lot. The idea being that, even well-endowed democracies will ultimately betray the Jewish state and the Jewish people, along with other governments. That Israel can only survive with G-d’s protection, or the protection offered by His Messiah(s). That’s the whole point.
    Second, some prophecies seem to claim the West (USA?) might lose a sea battle of some sort. Some of Iran rockets loaded onto the Iranian fast-boats might actually sink a carrier. Could happen.

      All the nations are as nought before Him; as things of nought and vanity are they regarded by Him.

      Woe to him who contends with his Creator, a potsherd among the potsherds of the earth…

    I wonder if the general realizes his name is synonymous with pork, . . . maybe he better change his name, or he may not get his 72 virgins.

    Iran as a country is soon to be a desert with no water. Oh and also If they actually build the desalination plant in Bandar Abbas then they should probably expect it to disappear as fast as their Oil industry infrastructure will. I would trust the morons in Tehran and Qom keep up their lunacy though because they are all a pack of imbeciles!

    Proxy nuclear attack, anonymous, v difficult to source and of course vehemently denied by the Mullahs. Would US retaliate blindly, with 5-6 cities in ashes and its economy in freefall? Perhaps Sunni groups would even claim credit.

    Don’t underestimate Iran’s ruthlessness.
