US war against Iran is impossible, claims Iranian general

The deployment of a US aircraft carrier to Iran’s regional waters is nothing but psychological warfare and part of a plan to intimidate Tehran, the head of the Revolutionary Guards Corps, Gen Hossein Salami, has told parliamentarians in a closed-door session.
The IRGC commander said a US war against Iran was impossible, claiming Washington lacked the necessary military strength.

Another senior commander claimed Iran had the firepower to “hit the US in the head” during the session in Tehran on Sunday.
The combined remarks represent another ratcheting up of the bellicose rhetoric between Washington and Tehran, since Iran began a partial withdrawal last week from 2015 the nuclear deal.

3. So when Iran attacks us, what should we do?

By the way, there never was a "nuclear deal," at least not on the part of Iran. They have ignored every aspect of the so-called deal from day one, making others who believed in a deal fools. They have never slowed down enriching uranium one bit.


Iran has never, ever, upheld an agreement with anybody.

6. if you want me to agree to war anywhere my conditions have been clear for years

convince congress that war is necessary.

congress can then declare war, raise taxes, mobilize the home front, conscript troops and the myriad other necessities for the winning of a war.

19. the taliban do not seem to be the wehrmacht nor do the iraqis

are you really proposing another 20- infinity year long war with no intent to win or vision of what victory looks like?

When Iran attacks us, what should we do?

Are you saying we should do nothing?

20. if course it does

it answers the question of whether you are willing to pay for a war or make any sacrufice towards its fast and decisuve conclusion. until you can answer that in the affirmative i can not take your hypothetical first struke with any degree of gravity.

9. Not looking for a full blown war

Just a punitive action that destroys their naval and air capabilities, along with destroying their nuclear infrastructure. No Congress needed for that, it would be over before they can even write legislation.

16. In order to destroy their nuclear capabilities, we would need to enter their underground facilities

The real development of Iran's nuclear enrichment and missile development takes place underground in top secret facilities which Iran forbids anybody to inspect. How do we know they exist? We can thank Israel primarily for infiltrating Iran's weapons manufacturing plants, but theirs is not the only spies keeping tabs in Iraq.


Iran has vowed many times to wipe Israel, the Little Satan, off the map, and it goes without saying they intend to attack the Great Satan, the USA.

4. Forget the US Army, I just came back from Georgia and I say unleash the rednecks!!!

*no offense intended. Those who I spent time with know I love them as brothers.

Rednecks will first invade Syria, then realize that it's the wrong country, they invade Jordan, then get pissed off that they got it wrong again and just invade Iran on their way back without knowing it. Just because they are pissed off and the damn place has no decent beer.

To all rednecks here. How is it that you can shoot the left eye of running a squirrel from 200 yards, track a bleeding animal through any bush, forest, jungle, but can not find your way around a simple town.

This may seem unrelated but Iran is soo wrong it's not even funny.

I will take any Redneck army over some overconfident persian army any day

8. How do you figure?

The invasion of Iraq was a cake walk and if we did it to Iran it would be as well, now a occupation might be a bigger problem but defeating Iran wouldn't be a problem for our Military

17. Never underestimate the strength of your enemy

Iraq has been working full bore on their nuclear capability for decades, and don't think for a second they won't use it. Remember, they have Allah on their side, who will protect them and destroy us. (they think).

24. Rednecks have traditionally been the most expert snipers in the army

And I have been in Iran. Typical Middle Eastern behavior. 95% all talk and no follow up.
Are there tough guys there? Of course. Enough to stand up to the US Army? No way, chance or prayer.

So I will still take my rednecks over them any day.

10. I know a Western PA Redneck, and I can confirm your story

One time we were all gathered in the neighborhood, having a few beers and shooting the breeze and he asks me "Have you ever gone up to Erie (PA) and couldn't find the Lake?"

I really didn't know what to say.

They can spot a drop of blood on a leaf in the forest but can not spot a lake LOL
But I loved my time there, real honest people, sometimes rude, mostly friendly and very polite.
It was nice to take a break from fake smiles and the stupidity of the city life.
