Topic: Iranian General Vows "Astonishing" Attacks


What I want to know is what is your guys' reactions to this?

TEHRAN (AFP) - Jafari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards' ground forces, said Iran now had to capacity to defeat any invader in the space of just weeks. "We pushed the Baathist enemy from our country within one and a half years," he said, referring to the opening campaigns of the 1980-88 war with Iraq. "With the experience and skills from that war and in the case of any invasion, the invaders will be defeated in less than one and a half months," Jafari said. "Even though the US and Israel do not have the courage to invade the Iranian nation, the Revolutionary Guards are in very good state of readiness to response to threats," General Yahya Rahim Safavi said.




My feelings where humor at first because he's as ludicrous as the Iraqi Information minister but then they moved to "Really? Well let's just go in there and call this guy's bluff!"

The most damage these guys can do, and is significant, would be to make things difficult in the straights of Hormuz, bringing shipping insurance levels to ridiculously high levels. That will probably affect the economy of the West badly.

I tend to disregard those types of comments. I suggest you do the same. What does the quote from some Iranian General have to do with us? The US isn't going to be provoked by some :cen: and we shouldn't be either.

Iran is merely apart of a broader "phantom" coalition of Islamic fascist, there is nothing new about them being our enemy.

Either way, I could care less what this general says- their technology is outdated compared to America's, and I have no reason to believe their training has had any significant improvements sence their last military encounter.

Not that it matters, the USA hasn't enough ground troops to spare to garrison such a large country.


China is an opportunist nation, it really doesn't seem to have allies. Merely friendly relationships to secure a few coins here and there, always something to expand China's prosperity. With exception to North Korea..

Didn't stop the Israelies very well when they flew in and bombed the crap out of their nuclear power plant that was making plutonium.

That was in Iraq...


As to the statment...The Irani's did drive the Iraqis back, but it took them 8 years, no a year and a half...It almost destroyed their country and did destroy their army, which they are still rebuilding. For anyone to make a statment like that is stupid and unrealistic, let alone a country that has a poorly trained and equipped like Iran. If I was an Irani General, I would start preaparing my army for war, instead of BSing...Id try to make sure my army dosent collaps like that of Saddam...
