US Forces Wary of Confronting IRGC

The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Naval Force highlighted his forces’ military prowess and said even US forces are wary of confronting the IRGC in the Persian Gulf.
“Their [US] commanders and military experts have acknowledged the power and dominance of the Islamic Republic during the years that we have been at the closest possible distance with them,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Saturday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“In view of their perception of our strength and ability, they are afraid of having a presence in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, and confronting the deterrent power of the Islamic Republic,” he said.
Fadavi pointed to US President Donald Trump’s recent anti-Tehran remarks and said Washington’s frustration and anger over Iran’s growing power and the failure of US plots in the Middle East have made him “talk nonsense”.
The remarks came in response to Trump’s lies in his first address to a session of the UN General Assembly that Iran’s “support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of many of its neighbors to fight terrorism and halt its financing.”
Trump’s lies are contradicted by the ground realities that show Iran has helped combat terrorists in Iraq and Syria at the request of these countries and has been joined by Russia and Turkey in its drive against terrorism.
