Deterrence Power Highlighted

Deterrence Power Highlighted

The US government intended to invade the Islamic Republic in 1991 or 2001, but did not dare to do so, Iranian Army’s Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said.
Highlighting Iran’s deterrence power, Pourdastan said in a speech on Sunday, “In 1991 or 2001 when the US invaded the Middle East with the support of 30 countries, its main target was not Afghanistan or Iraq,” Tasnim News Agency reported.
The lieutenant general noted that the Americans actually wanted to attack Iran, but they were faced with the country’s military preparedness under “the vigilant and prudent” leadership, supported by the Iranian people and realized that they could not confront the country.
Addressed the country’s soldiers and youths, Pourdastan said the preparedness of the armed forces in peacetime has a message for enemies and undermines their hostile plans. “Therefore, the Iranian Armed Forces should preserve preparedness in the face of foreign threats,” he said.
