“The Americans are passive today and they have not at all been in a situation (powerful enough) in the last several years to even pose such threats as military action against Iran,” Fadavi told FNA on Tuesday.
He added that the Americans have deployed their warships in the Persian Gulf with the superficial slogan of safeguarding regional and energy security, but “history has shown that they don’t have the power to do so and they are themselves an element of insecurity”.
He described the Persian Gulf as Washington’s Achilles Heel, and said, “If the Americans believed that they could decapitate us tomorrow, they wouldn’t hesitate to do so and would not delay the job to the day after tomorrow but they themselves are well aware that they don’t have the power to do so, and they know that the losses that they would sustain by doing so couldn’t match its benefits thanks to our deterrence power.”
“And the important issue is that the enemy admits this power,” added the Admiral.
