Senior commander of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Gholamhossein Gheybparva has dismissed President Trump’s anti-Tehran remarks as a “psychological war,” local media reported.

“We will never abandon our revolutionary beliefs… we will resist pressure from enemies… America wants nothing less than (to) destroy Iran… (but) Trump cannot do a damn thing against Iran,” the ISNA news agency cited Gheybparvar as saying.

The comments come shortly after Trump fired off a stark warning to President Hassan Rouhani on Twitter for his earlier threats.

Over the weekend, ​Rouhani lashed out at the United States, having warned that the Trump administration’s hostile policies towards Tehran could prompt “the mother of all wars” and hinted that the US’ attempts to block Iran’s oil trade would result in Tehran’s closing the strategical waterway linking Middle East crude producers to major world markets, the Strait of Hormuz.

“Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people’s achievements. Mr. Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don’t play with the lion’s tail; you will regret it. But the enemies must understand well that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. We have never been intimidated and will respond threat with threat,” Rouhani said.

Tensions between the two countries further escalated in wake of President Trump’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, and reimpose anti-Tehran sanctions.

The agreement, signed by P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, the UK, France and Germany) and Iran, envisaged the gradual lifting of sanctions in exchange for the Islamic Reoublic maintaining a peaceful nature of its nuclear program.

This war will never end. No one understands anyone and no one gives in.

Unfortunately Iran won’t do very much to shut up Trump’s vomit mouth either, given the corruption that gangster Don Rouhani & Co abuse the Iranian citizens with. The ayatollahs will all be safe and well-fed and having their toes rubbed deep underground when the missiles start flying, unlike the sacrificial sheeple. And they won’t ever have to worry about being pulled out of a hole like Saddam and having their heads snapped off at the end of a rope.

It’s clear that now Iran builds a reverse-engineered copy of AIM-54 Phoenix for their Tomcats, they surely have nothing to fear : https://southfront.org/iran-kicks-off-mass-production-of-fakour-90-air-to-air-missile/ Except that… AIM-54 Phoenix was created to take out Soviet bombers like Tu-95, Tu-16, Tu-22 loaded with 60’s/70’s ECM. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fakour-90 The only aircraft AIM-54 Phoenix is proven to have ever shot down is actually… the Tomcat that did one of its firsts test-launches… Note that AIM-54 was already an improvement of pretty unsuccessful AIM-4/AIM-26/AIM-47 Falcon programs. Note that AIM-47 1st launch happened in 1962. Iran received AIM-54A which entered service in US-Navy in 1974. The few US… Read more »

“We will never abandon our revolutionary beliefs…” => I feel having red this from commies in the 80’s… “America wants nothing less than (to) destroy Iran…” => Not even. Gheybparvar is mistaking Iran’s regime with the country. “Trump cannot do a damn thing against Iran,” => In fact, the biggest problem is to finish of this illegitimate regime without ending with a mess like in Libya or Syria : Iran’s population is huge : it’d create a GIGANTIC refugee crisis. It’s obvious that EU public opinion is not likely at all to accept 20 millions Iranian refugees! “could prompt “the… Read more »

In case you wouldn’t know, AK-47 production ceased 56 years ago… The ISIS scam was a wonderful death trap to have all Sunni radicals gathering in the same area to be finished off. The Iranian mug’s game to get rid of Sunni cockroaches of your specie (in order to fill the vacuum) was pretty nasty, the westerner and Russian game to not be in a hurry and have morons like you believe your allah was on your side and you had a chance to win on superpowers was even nastier : look at all these idiots who fell into this… Read more »

Except that Zarqawi used to hide in Iran before being smuggled into Iraq by Soleimani’s Quds-Force. Since he had Iran’s funding, Zarqawi could split from Osama and unite with al-Douri after Saddam’s demise, then you ended with near all ISIS commanders being former Saddam high ranking militaries… ISIS was DELIBERATELY let rush in both Iraq and Syria, so the Sunni “resistance” would end crushed by both Yanks and Russians, thus provoking a power-vacuum that IRGC may fill… Look what remains of your beloved ISIS… Note that Soleimani probably didn’t planed that both Yanks and Russians would opt for a low… Read more »

DS, Never mind this “abu” is a troll….and a poor one, by the way. But, about all this, the True Point question is : With the Sha Reza Palhevi being the “American Police” of the Middle East…Having more than 30 Th “yankee advisers” and the strongest army in the region (except for Israel), with more than 200 Th men, why, why, ask yourself has Zbiegniew Brzenzisnky pulled the carpet under the Sha’s feet and made him felt down before a beard’s “bishop” armed with recorded tapes….! And, never forget Kh. was a “refugee” in the outskirts of Paris, where a… Read more »
