Talk of War from IRGC Major General Jafari
"The Islamic Republic of Iran's defense capabilities today, in particular its missile power, enable it to repel any possible attack."
"Israel is located entirely within the reach of our missiles. Our missile power is such that the Zionist regime, despite all its capabilities, would not be able to confront us."
"It seems without the cooperation of the occupying regime of al-Quds, rhetoric cannot turn into action. Even though the US may believe it can unilaterally attack Iran, the US needs Israeli assistance."
"This fact would be a deterrent factor for our enemy given the numerous vulnerabilities of the Zionist regime."
"Naturally, any country coming under attack will use all of its capacity and opportunities to confront the enemy. Given the main route for energy to exit the region, one of Iran's steps will definitely be to exercise control on the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz."
"Should a confrontation erupt between us and the enemy, the scope will definitely reach the oil issue. ... Oil prices will dramatically increase. This is one of the factors deterring the enemy from taking military action."
Jafari's comments were made in an interview conducted by Jam-e Jam, an Iranian daily newspaper.Click here for the latest!
