November 7, 2007

TEHRAN -- General Commander of Iran’s Military Major General Ataollah Salehi called the enemy’s threats a blessing for Iran.

“The enemy’s threats have led us today to a very high capacity of military capabilities, which we owe this to the enemy and its threats,” the major general said in an address to the Army officers’ graduation ceremony.
“Our abilities today have made enemy officially confess that they fear our military and that they do not have the strength to stand against us,” he said.
Referring to his recent border visits, he said, ""Regretfully in one of my visits to border point several alien troops had stationed in Iranian soil, which when spotted, were issued a warning...when they saw our great military strength, they left the area hurriedly and with fear,"" Salehi said.
“Today the enemy, despite (having) access to advanced conventional and non-conventional weapons, has understood that it does not have the might to face our combatants' high spirit,” he noted.
