“No U.S. soldier survives if Iran is attacked”

9 Apr 2010

Iran’s Armed Forces Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi has warned the U.S. against making any military moves against the Islamic Republic. “If the U.S. seriously threatens Iran and takes action against Iran, none of the U.S. soldiers in the region will return to America alive,” Fars news agency quoted him as saying on Thursday.
Firouzabadi made the remarks in reaction to U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who said on Tuesday that Washington was keeping “all options” on the table for dealing with Iran and North Korea.
“If there is a message for Iran and North Korea here, it is that if you’re going to play by the rules, if you’re going to join the international community, then we will undertake certain obligations to you,” AFP quoted Gates as saying.
Firouzabadi also said that if the U.S. takes action against Iran, the threats it would face will increase exponentially and its economic problems will skyrocket. “If the U.S. seriously threatens Iran and takes an action against Iran, the threats against it will become a thousand times more, its economic problems will increase and it will lose more markets,” he said.
Firouzabadi’s speech came a day after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad condemned Washington’s latest nuclear policy. The policy authorizes the use of nuclear arms against nations which violate the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), like Iran. In response to the new nuclear strategy, Ahmadinejad scorned he plan and advised his U.S. counterpart not to repeat the “past mistakes” of the previous U.S. governments. “I advise Mr Obama to be careful. If he tries to follow in the footsteps of Mr [George W.] Bush, the response of the [Iranian] nation will be the same crushing response they gave to Bush,” President Ahmadinejad said in a speech in the northwestern city of Orumiyeh.
