US Deterred by Iran's Military Might

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian military official said Iran's military might deters the US from taking any military action against the Islamic Republic.



"The US has mobilized all its power against Iran and it has set up military bases in all Iran's neighboring countries, but Iran's military might has deterred the US from launching an attack on the country," said Rear Admiral Morteza Saffari, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy.

"Any attack against Iran will trigger a crushing response to the enemies," the Islamic republic news agency quoted Saffari as saying on Tuesday.

"They know that any aggression against Iran will prompt a decisive response, and this is why they will not make any insane move against Iran," he added.

Iran does not want war but is fully prepared to defend itself against any enemy threat, he explained.
