Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri scoffed at the US officials’ war rhetoric against Tehran, and underlined that the interests of the US and the Zionist regime are within the reach of Iran’s weapons and military equipment.
“The Iranian nation considers as jokes the remarks by the US President (Barack Obama) and Defense Secretary (Chuck Hagel) that the military option (against Iran) is on the table,” Jazayeri said on the sidelines of a meeting with the Armed Forces’ cultural and media directors in Tehran on Sunday.
He stressed the Iranian Armed Forces’ military power and defensive capabilities, and said, “At present, many of the US and Zionists’ interests are within the reach of Iran’s military power, and Tehran has made its decision long ago to confront the aggressors.”
The very model of flexibility, moderation and nuance.
