Commander: US Democrats Wary of Iran Attack Costs

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Armed Forces Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said here on Tuesday that the US Democrats share the warmongering attitudes of the Republicans, but they may not attack Iran as they are well informed of the dearly costs of such a move.

Speaking on the sidelines of a conference dubbed as 'Psychological Operation, Engineering and Research about the Future' in Tehran, Firouzabadi reiterated, "Despite their abundant military equipment and facilities whose role is supporting their warmonger culture, the Americans do not have the power and courage to use them against Iran."

He stressed that Iran has never neglected the possibility of enemies' military attack on the country, and pointed out that the US has striven for 30 years to annihilate the Islamic Revolution but it didn't succeed.

Referring to the enemies' efforts to start psychological war against Iran, the General said, "Today the enemy's psychological war is stronger than its military threats as the West has been defeated by our Revolution in all the fronts and has made itself more powerful to confront Iran in other fronts."

The enemies want to make the Iranian youths pessimistic about the Islamic Revolution but the Iranian youths showed that they are loyal to the causes of the Revolution and Imam Khomeini through partaking in revolutionary circles and gatherings.

Elsewhere, he underlined Iran's friendly relations with its neighbors, and said that the Iranian Armed Forces' intelligence assessments of the regional countries lay much emphasis on maintaining close relations with neighbors.
