Countering current United States war rhetoric against Iran, a prominent Iranian government official has stated his country will “make the world insecure,” forcing American service personnel to leave the Middle East region in order to save their lives.
Jahangir Kosari, Vice-Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran’s parliament, noted on Monday any attempts by the U.S. to attack Iran “will make the world insecure for the Americans in the least possible time and all the US military men will be forced to leave the Middle-East region to save their lives,” FARS News reports.
The U.S. and Israeli governments repeatedly have accused Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, despite any proof substantiating such claims, yet Iran has experienced a series of covert actions against its nuclear program, a program which the Middle East country states is for peaceful purposes.
“If course in the case of military aggression and conflict, Iran will not allow the American military men to escape; therefore, it is to the benefit of the US to accept the powerful Iran and avoid military adventurism,” Kosari added.
According to FARS, in case of any attack by Israel or the U.S., Iran would target 32 American military bases situated in the Middle East as well as close the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic point where around 40 percent of the world’s oil supply passes through.
