BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – An outspoken commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) stated on Wednesday that Iran will block oil shipments made through the Strait of Hormuz.

The deputy commander of the Sarollah Revolutionary Guards, General Ismael Kowsari, was quoted by the Young Journalists Club on Wednesday as saying that Iran will be blocking oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz if the United States bans Tehran’s petrol sales.

“If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any oil shipment to pass through the Strait of Hormuz,” Ismail Kowsari allegedly said.

Prior to this threat, Kowsari said that Iran’s people will punch U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, in the face.

Totally unrealistic! To give you a little idea, Iran’s global military budget, including IRGC, is the 100th of the US budget. Seriously, just dare to try to shoot a ballistic missile on Tel-Aviv. I want to see this! First, you’re not even sure to hit… Now, as Israelis will immediately detect the launch, according to Colin Powell (off the record), they have 200 warheads of megaton range. Now let me tell you the IMMEDIATE effect of a 1 megaton warhead blast over Laleh Zar (downtown) in Tehran. 2.42 millions dead 3.7 millions casualties expect a lot of these casualties to… Read more »

The only thing having killed several hundreds of millions in human history is… Islam! 300-350 millions in India only (over 800 years of constant invasions). USA did kill about 20 millions since WW2 (highest figure). It’s less than Stalin or Mao did to their own people. Nobody forced Japan to attack Pearl-Harbour Maximum figure for Israel since 1948? 85,000 (yup!). Most of these death occurred due to wars Israel didn’t started. In fact, they never started a single war. Not even the 6 Days war : Egypt started it by blockading the Tiran strait and deploying troops at Israeli border.… Read more »

Well to give you an Idea of the difference in power, it’d be like if Swiss militaries would have to fight China…
Well, if I had an advise to Iranian regular militaries : better do a coup, even if they have to fight IRGC to do so…
It’ll be better for everybody.
When shitlamists say “Islam is the solution” they forget a word : “WORST”
