IRGC Commander blasts Kerry's anti-Iran remarks

Tehran, Jan 26, IRNA -- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari lashed out at US Secretary of State John Kerry's recent war rhetoric against Iran.

Major General Jafari's remarks came in reaction to Kerry who said on January 23 that “the military option that is available to the United States is ready and prepared to do what it would have to do” if Iran enriches uranium beyond five percent purity.

'You could never understand the extent of the invasive capacity of the Islamic Republic of Iran,' Major General Jafari said on Saturday.

'Mr. Kerry must know that direct battle with the US is the biggest dream of pious and revolutionary people across the world. Your threats offer our revolutionary people the best opportunity,” said Jafari.

He added that “wise politicians” in the United States are unlikely to let the “ridiculous military option” remain on the table.

Jafari recommended Kerry to stop repeating “bankrupt strategies like the use of military option” in order to avoid the accelerated collapse of the US civilization.
