Iranian Commander Threatens United States

Iran is a problem that is not going to go away and we need a strategic plan to crush Iran’s ability to wage war, build nuclear weapons, or attack anyone.

A commander in Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards, which is labeled as a terrorist organization by the United States, Hossein Nejat, launched yet another comical threat towards the U.S. as tensions continue to heat up.

“American bases are within the range of our missiles… Our missiles will destroy their aircraft carriers if they make a mistake.” Commander Nejat said, “Americans are very well aware of the consequences of a military confrontation with Iran.”

This threat is just one of many threats that Iran has directed towards the United States as they have, on three occasions, attacked U.S. oil tankers and drones in the Strait of Hormuz. Iran is essentially an overconfident, angry child and the United States has been incredibly merciful so far, but that can only last for so long.

As I have stated in previous stories, Iran is a problem that is not going to go away and we need a strategic plan to crush Iran’s ability to wage war, build nuclear weapons, or attack anyone.  I believe we are capable of doing that with very minimal forces and concentrating on massive air power until the strategic goals are met.
