Iran ground force commander: U.S. wouldn’t dare attack us


Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdasta says America and its allies are ‘fearful of the Iranian forces and nation'; U.S. Defense Secretary warns that Iran only a year away from producing a nuclear bomb.

The Iranian army’s ground force commander said Monday that the United States and its allies would not dare launch an attack on the Islamic Republic, Iran’s state-run Press TV reported.

“They are fearful of the Iranian forces and nation,” Press TV quoted Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan as saying.

Pourdastan said that despite the fact that the U.S. dispatched the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, and despite the advanced weaponry in America’s possession, fears of an Iranian retaliation would deter any kind of attack by the U.S.

The U.S. and European nations have recently increased pressure on Iran by imposing a wide-reaching oil embargo over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program.

Earlier Monday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned that Iran is only one year away from producing a nuclear weapon, saying that the U.S. “will take whatever steps necessary” to stop it.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said earlier this month that Iran would stand up to growing international pressure over its nuclear program and threatened to “respond to attacks.”

Iran has retaliated to the growing pressure with threats to block oil transport through the Strait of Hormuz, which carries a large part of Middle East oil to the rest of the world.

    Is cobra commander talking in past-tense?

    Don’t be ashamed to be British; instead, be ashamed of all those who lead us to war with a one-tracked pack mentality. It would have been immeasurably cheaper to forgo nuclear technology, than to offer up the entire region as a seder sacrifice; just as it would have been, to simply buy Iraq’s oil, and not sell them so many weapons.

    I am very disappointed, but not from our corrupt politicians and presidents. I am disappointed of more than 50% of Americans who still believe in these corrupt leaders and every four years they are very optimist about these two corrupt parties and even expect miracles from them…

    Unfortunately these people never learn their lessons and never see the real face of these double faced politician or candidates. How could we expect anything positive when majority of people voted for somebody like George Bush for his second term of presidency? These people are not rich and am sure most of them have lost their jobs, health care and even their homes but still believe and voted for these fascist candidates…

    There is a famous adage which fits well for these people; it says: “If you fool me first time, shame on you but shame on me if you fool me the second time…”. Now this is the story of majority of people who haven’t learned their lessons and again are going to vote for these fascist, corrupt and double faced candidates… I don’t know how or when this sad story ends!?…

    The Iranians are so cool, and are slowly turning the tide, I hope the voices of common sense prevail..

    Turkey has announced it`s intention to ignore the sanctions too, as well as India..
