Iran Claims it can Defeat the US in ‘Any Scenario’

Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari claimed Wednesday that Iran can defeat the US in “any scenario.”


At a convention in Tehran, Jafari boasted “we have grown so much (more) powerful that we don’t feel concerned about the enemy’s unwise attitude. We can go past any enemy scenario, and this has been proved in our contemporary history,” according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.


Clarifying which enemy he was referring to, Jafari said “the US should find a way to survive and continue its endangered life, but we are surprised at the enemy’s insistence on costly and useless scenarios,” in reference to the sanctions imposed on Iran.


A day earlier at a meeting of the Assembly of Experts that elected Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi as its new chairman Tuesday morning, Jafari made the claim that the US had created the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group to counter Iran’s expanding influence in the region, which it is exercising through various terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Houthis in Yemen.
