Gen. Salami: Iran Able to Impose Power on Enemy

TEHRAN -- Iran has been able “to impose” its power on the enemy, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) chief Major General Hussein Salami said on Wednesday.
Salami said the Islamic Republic’s enemies have been at work for 45 years to undermine and weaken the revolution using a wide variety of means and tactics. However, he insisted that the Islamic Republic has defied all the odds has not been deterred.
“We have been able to absorb and neutralize all these different pressures and impose the magnificent power of a nation on an arrayed world of enemies,” the IRGC chief commander said.
 “The enemy is simultaneously targeting all pillars of the system and the revolution, converging all vectors of threat at a single point. This synergy and maximum pressure from the enemy have placed us in an exceptional position.”
“If you see that you have security at the height of confrontation, it means you possess power,” Salami proclaimed. “If the enemy realizes that you can overcome their sanctions, they will try to encircle you. And if you see that sanctions have become ineffective in this country, it is because you possess power,” he added.
“They seized our ships, so we seized theirs. They wanted to capture our oil tankers en route to Venezuela, but as soon as we conducted a drill in front of their eyes, they backed off. They attacked some of our ships at sea, but when their ships were attacked, they realized that they couldn’t engage with this country,” Salami said.
“Today, your exports and imports are conducted with complete security due to your power,” Salami told his audience, adding, “and in this matter, there is no difference between Trump and Biden. During Trump’s time, we attacked Ain al-Asad and shot down the Global Hawk. They realized that if they wanted to stand against Iran, Iran, with its influence on the global economy, could impact the world through its actions.”
