(RightWing.org) – An Iranian general has issued a menacing warning about the rogue state’s military capabilities. The commander of the Revolutionary Guard boasted on Saturday that Iran has “unique” weapons and that its enemies are declining in power.
General Hossein Salami commands the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a parallel military loyal to the Ayatollahs instead of Iran’s elected government. The IRGC is a major supporter of terrorism and has been sanctioned by the US.

Salami was at an event to honor Iranian “martyrs” when he made the inflammatory comments. “The tools in our possession are unique,” he claimed, although most of Iran’s weaponry is either local copies of Chinese and Russian systems or old US aircraft sold to Iran in the 1970s.
Although Iran couldn’t stand up to the US in a conventional war, it’s invested heavily in asymmetric capabilities, as well as ballistic missiles capable of hitting Israeli and Arab cities, and it’s also determined to get nuclear weapons. The US can’t afford to let its guard down as long as people like General Salami threaten us.
