IRGC: US Left with No Option, But to Leave West Asia
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) in a statement issued on the anniversary of the Sacred Defense (1980-88 Iraqi-imposed war against Iran) said that the US has no choice but to withdraw its troops from the West Asia region.
"After 41 years since the start of the imposed war, which was sponsored and supported by the world powers, the nation has grown more resilient and the country has solidified its defensive power," the IRGC statement said.
The IRGC pointed out that the imposed war against Iran ended while even a handspan of Iranian soil was not given to the enemy.
"The western powers continued non-stop to conspire against Iran over the past 33 years since the end of the imposed war," it added.
The IRGC reiterated that the power of hegemonic powers such as the United States, which supported Saddam's regime, was declining while they made wrong calculations and invaded Islamic countries of Iraq and Afghanistan.
"But today, after more than twenty years since the occupation of Afghanistan by the US and NATO, we are witnessing the humiliating escape of the Americans from Afghanistan and at God's willing, we will see their expulsion from West Asia in the near future," the IRGC statement further added.
In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said that Iran is bolstering its power to gain victory against Washington, noting that Israel is no more counted as a power.
"We have built power to defeat the US. When we build power for man's largest military empire, i.e. the US, small powers like the Zionist regime are no longer counted in our equations," General Salami said.
He underlined that the Iranian nation has managed to embrace victory against the US cruel sanctions and economic war as well as the psychological pressures and heavy media operations of Washington and other western powers, and defused enemies’ plots.
In relevant remarks on Sunday, General Salami said that the US has lost its power and is a defeated, fugitive and depressed state which has been forced to withdraw its forces from the region.
“Today we no longer see the dangerous US, but we witness a failed, fleeing, and the depressed US,” General Salami said.
General Salami also expressed delight that the Iranian nation’s resistance too had helped them weather all pressures.
“Inside our own country, despite all natural or imposed pressures, the Iranian nation has been engaged in resistance [too]. And now, these obstacles are being removed, the adversities are giving way to easier times, and the roads are being paved,” he said.
The entire world is now envying this nation that has been successfully standing up to great powers for more than four decades, the commander said.
“Iran’s name is identified with grandeur, compassion, advancement, integrity, and unity,” he stated, and also hailed the Iranian people’s strong emotional bond with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
