The greatest threat to U.S. national security may not be what you think it is.
It could be Iran.
One of Iran’s most senior military leaders said that his nation had already infiltrated the United States and was prepared to strike.
What’s worse, these comments were the second made by a senior commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
And they were made over a year ago.
“America, with its strategic ignorance, does not have a full understanding of the power of the Islamic Republic,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami said during a television interview.
“We have recognized America’s military strategy, and have arranged our abilities, and have identified centers in America that will create a shock” if attacked, he added.
Some have previously warned that Hezbollah terrorists allied with Iran have infiltrated the United States, according to a report cited by RedFlag News.
“We will conduct such a blow in which they (America) will be destroyed from within,” Salami concluded.
The commander of the Republican Guards, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Jafari told Secretary of State John Kerry on Jan. 24, only days before Salami’s interview, that Iran “dreamed” of war with the United States.
Such a conflict is the “strongest dream of the faithful and revolutionary men around the world,” Jafari told Kerry.
This is precisely the sort of posturing that occurs when nations used to bullying their neighbors sense a weakness in the White House that they can exploit.
It’s not like President Barack Obama has taken even one action in six years that would give any of America’s enemies reason to fear his resolve or willingness to use the most powerful military in the world to defend America’s national interests.
Is Iran only bluffing? Probably.
But do we really want to find out?
