TEHRAN, Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani described the recent US President's statements against Iran as ridiculous, warning him: "Your account with me and with the Quds Force, not all the Iranian armed forces, Closer to you than you imagine.
"We are closer to you than you think," he said. Remember that your account with me and with Al-Quds Corps and not with all the armed forces. You know Iranian capabilities in asymmetric warfare.
Sulaimani noted that the US President is talking with the rest of the world as about the management of a nightclub, which is regrettable.
He pointed to Trump's unfounded statement that he would do with Iran in an unprecedented manner and addressed him, saying: "You have no past, and since your thinking is preoccupied with other issues, it never occurred to you to ask others." At least ask the security and intelligence services as no one before you could do anything against Iran.
The Commander of Al-Quds Corps added that the United States came with 110 thousand troops and thousands of tanks and troop carriers and military capabilities and hundreds of developed warplanes and helicopters for the war against the Taliban organization whose possibilities are few in Afghanistan, and turned the parties to the weddings and swept many villages and cities with the ground but did not able to do something and failed.
He said that it is not necessary for the Iranian armed forces to enter the arena. I and the forces of Al- Quds Force are confronting you, and know that we do not sleep a night when we do not think of eliminating you. Know that we are near you and in the place you do not expect.
"Such a war means destroying all your capabilities," he said. "You may start the war, but we are the ones who draw their end."
