Iran’ s elite military force, the Revolutionary Guard Corps, is supposedly sending assets to infiltrate America and Europe “very soon,” at the direction of the country’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei.
The purpose of this infiltration is to root out possible plots against Iran, and put a stop to them, an Iranian leader said.
From Fox News:
“‘The whole world should know that the IRGC will be in the U.S. and Europe very soon,’ Salar Abnoush, deputy coordinator of Iran’s Khatam-al-Anbia Garrison, an IRGC command front, was quoted as saying in an Iranian state-controlled publication closely tied to the IRGC.”
The remarks came just as Iran upped its spending on military hardware, including billions on buying U.S.-manufactured planes that will then be used by the country’s air force.
Congress has questioned whether Iran’s using the money from the nuclear deal forged at the insistence of President Obama in order to move its military strategies forward.
Again, from Fox News:
“Congressional leaders and others suspect that Iran has used a large portion of the cash windfall it received as a result of last summer’s nuclear agreement to upgrade its fighting capabilities war machine.
“‘The IRGC is [the] strong guardian of the Islamic Republic,’ Abnoush was quoted as saying. ‘The Fedayeen of Velayat [fighting force] are under the order of Iran’s Supreme leader. Defending and protecting the Velayat [the Supreme Leader] has no border and limit.’”
Abnoush also said it’s high time the fighting force took its role to defend the supreme leader more seriously.
From the Daily Mail:
“Abnoush continued … [and said]: ”The IRGC is [the] strong guardian of the Islamic Republic.
“‘The Fedayeen of Velayat [fighting force] are under the order of Iran’s Supreme leader.
“‘Defending and protecting the Velayat [the Supreme Leader] has no border and limit.’
“The military leader claimed the step was being taken in order to protect the regime against efforts to destroy it.
“He said: ‘Our enemies have several projects to destroy our Islamic revolution, and have waged three wars against us to execute their plans against our Islamic Republic.
“‘The IRGC has defeated enemies in several fronts. The enemy surrendered and accepted to negotiate with us.
“‘And now all of our problems are being solved and our country is becoming stronger in all fronts.
“‘Some believe the holy defense ended. They are wrong; the holy defense continues, and today, it is more complicated than before.’”
