Iran strategy: retaliation against enemy


American forces in Persian Gulf would suffer heavy casualties; Obama placing U.S. Naval forces in grave danger; possible CIA sponsored "false-flag" to sacrifice American lives in exchange for starting war:  Lyndon Johnson's USS Liberty and SS Mayaguez, both bogus operations, both examples of lying, murdering President, reflection of Obama

A senior Iranian lawmaker says the Islamic Republic reserves the right to respond in kind to any threat posed to its interests from any part of the world.

    Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said Friday that if the United States continues its threatening presence in Iranian waterways, Iran will respond in kind.

The lawmaker, who heads the Majlis (parliament) Foreign Policy Subcommittee, emphasized that Iran does not follow an aggressive strategy; rather its strategy is defined within a defensive framework.

“Iran has never initiated war and military confrontation and our military does not use the language of threat, rather [it uses] the language of defense,” he added.

    The lawmaker explained that NATO changed its statute in 1994 to adopt a new policy of military aggression.

    “Iran is a country that differs from [other] countries which have been targeted by US aggressive strategy. Iran can deal counterblows to any aggressive country and has strategic depth which makes the management of a war impossible for the party that starts it,” he said.

Iranian Navy exercises last week
Falahatpisheh further stated that since Washington uses the language of threat, Iran must consider any military move by the US in the region as a threatening move and respond by holding military drills.



   “[Military] drills held by the Islamic Republic following the imposed war [with Iraq] have been proportionate to threats posed to Iran from time to time by its enemies,” he added.

    On December 24, 2011, Iran's Navy launched a massive 10-day naval exercise codenamed Velayat 90 which covered an area stretching from the east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden.

   Different classes of submarines, including Tareq and Ghadir, the newest ground-to-sea missile systems and torpedoes were employed in the maneuvers.

    The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy announced on January 5, that the IRGC is set to hold a major military maneuver in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz in February.

    IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said the drill, the seventh in a series of drills dubbed the Great Prophet, will be different compared to previous exercises held by the IRGC.

    The Strait of Hormuz, a narrow waterway between Iran and Oman, connects the Persian Gulf with the Sea of Oman and is a major oil route.
