“The Americans can sense by all means how their warships will be sunk with 5,000 crews and forces in combat against Iran and how they should find its hulk in the depths of the sea,” Fadavi said, explaining why Washington’s war rhetoric against Iran is nothing but empty boastful words.
He said since “the very first day that the US warships entered the Persian Gulf, the IRGC Navy has formed and evolved all its capabilities, training, structures, organizations and weapons on the basis of Washington’s threats”, and added that the IRGC vessels in the region are monitoring the “slightest moves” made by the Americans.
Fadavi said the Americans might be able to hide themselves in their bases in certain Muslim countries of the region if they are faced with Iran’s crushing response, “but they cannot hide themselves in the sea since the entire Middle-East region, the western Europe, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz are monitored by us and there is no place for them to hide” (source: IRGC Navy Commander: US Can Well Imagine How Its Warships Sink if It Attacks Iran http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13921120001529).
