One of the top commanders of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard says they have already made plans to attack America from the inside.
Brigadier General Hossein Salami said in a televised interview that the “power of the Islamic Republic” will surprise the world.
“We have recognized America’s military strategy,” Salami said, “And have arranged our abilities, and have identified centers in America that will create a shock. We will conduct a blow in which they will be destroyed from within.”
This is the second threat against America in the last two weeks from an Iranian official. The Guard’s chief commander told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry last week that a direct conflict with America is the “strongest dream of the faithful and revolutionary men around the world.”
Reports say that Hezbollah terrorists sympathetic to Iran are already within the United States and likely have selected targets.
Iran now has the means to launch a nuclear weapon.
A commander with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard told the state-run FARS news agency that their country now has “indigenous” ballistic missile technology that would allow attacks on distant countries.
Brigadier General Hossein Salami said that “Iran is among the only three world countries enjoying an indigenous ballistic missile technology.”
The announcement comes as details trickle out from the previously announced agreement between Iran and world powers to stop that country’s nuclear program. The announced deal reportedly has not been finalized and no timetable set, thus allowing Iran to continue enriching uranium.
State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed Iran is not yet required to halt their uranium enrichment activities.
“In terms of what the Iranians are or aren’t doing, you know, obviously, our hope would be, given we are respecting the spirit of the agreement in pressing for sanctions not to be put in place and beginning the process of figuring out how to deliver on our end of the bargain, that the same would be coming from their end in the spirit of the—of the agreement,” Psaki said at a press conference.
