Iran: ‘We Will Beat U.S. In Intelligence War’ And ‘Punish Mistakes With Crushing Strikes’

On Saturday, Iran’s Fars news agency reported that “the commander of Iran’s Army Major General Moussavi warned that the country’s Armed Forces will respond to any strategic mistake by enemies with a crushing strike.” And so the meandering, one-way path towards an ‘inadvertent’ conflict continues. “Thank God,” General Moussavi reportedly told his army commanders, “today, all army units enjoy high morale and full combat preparedness and if the enemy makes a miscalculation or strategic mistake, they will receive a response which makes them regret.”

Fars reported that Moussavi “underlined the importance of vigilance and preparedness of Army units as a deterrence against the enemy threats, and assured the nation that his forces will defend the country’s security and interests to the last drop of their blood.”

Also on Saturday, the hardline head of Iran’s IRGC said that the country is “in an atmosphere of a full-blown intelligence war with the U.S. and the front of enemies of the Revolution and the Islamic system… We are able to defeat the enemy in intelligence war; breaking the enemy’s will to use power means disarming the enemy.” According to a state news agency, Hossein Salami called the U.S. “a declining power, but cautioned all about its conspiracies.”

After saying last week that Iran is “on the cusp of a full-scale confrontation with the enemy,” Salami, who has said in the past said that Iran “would welcome” war with the United States, also said on Saturday that “our other enemies act based on rules, similar to the U.S., and whenever they feel danger, they stay away from us. They believed that the more they increased the pressures, the more the Iranians more be reluctant to show reaction, but the Islamic Republic caused a collapse of their assumptions by means of its recent decision-makings and moves,” adding that “this atmosphere is a combination of psychological warfare and cyber operation, military provocations, public diplomacy and intimidation tactics.”
