IRGC: We are a regional power after downing US drone

IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami, said on Tuesday at a conference of the Corps Ground Force in Mashhad that Iran is in “all-out war” with the enemy, adding, “With the Grace of God… we will not be defeated in any war on the ground.” Ground Force chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Pakpour said the downing of the American drone changed the situation in favor of the Islamic Republic, turning it into “an authentic regional power. This is not tolerable for the US,” he said. Pakpour discussed new offensive strategies against the enemy, citing the “deep-attack doctrine” now on the Ground force’s agenda.

    Iran has nothing that can hold a candle to the American firepower that will be unleashed on their heads if they keep poking the bear.

    The US is not going to bring ship loads of tanks like it did over Kuwait, . . . two submarines just outside the straights of Hormuz unleashing their “toys” and Iran will go the way of Pharaoh’s army that pursued Israel into the Red Sea.

    Another sitting in the east end of the Med, . . . and the Syrian / Iraq / Turkish / Hezbolla / PA units will also become yesterday’s history lesson.

    Salami is dumber than the pig for which he is name saked.

      Well said, if they keep poking the bear, every oul platform, fast boat, and a reactor will toast

      @DwiT…- Salami is from Salam as in Shalom – as for Iran, it is a regional power anyway otherwise the others wont be worried about it. The other thing is that big bombs aren’t the only weapon that can cause pain and misery, asymmetric war tactics can put lots of people in body bags too. Finally the allegory of Pharaoh’s army is to do with your internal demons being destroyed as you ascend. And Lord knows, you have a lot of internal demons to deal with.

        Iran is not a regional power. Iran has no allies in the region, NONE. Iran only has proxies that are draining the Mullahcracy treasury while the Persian people starve. Iran is the definition of a paper tiger.

      The “bear” refers to Russia.

    Iranian offices involved in salami attacks should always each carry a personal brown flag, just in case the defeat of the coalition becomes so excessively unbearable that they might need to signal “stay away, our victory is already too big!”
    But, small brown flags get lost easily in a battle, in which case they could other personal belongings of the same color.

    East Turkey will certainly be lost to Turkey.

    I Quote as according to the Koran –

    ” we will not be defeated in any war on the ground.”

    The donkey-brained ayatollahs are beginning to insult the “intelligence” even of these humble, hard-working
    animals…And they still didn’t change the color of their seldom washed skirts to a new, bright brown !
