The sidelining of the United States in the Middle East, the accelerated decline of Western power and the paralysis of the “cobweb regimes on the verge of collapse” indicate a “waning of the evil regime of global arrogance” led by the United States, said Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami earlier this month.

In an Oct. 3 speech that aired on Ofogh TV (Iran), Salami said that Iran’s “deterrence capabilities” have almost reached their peak; that Israel no longer poses a threat to the Islamic Republic; and that the smallest “mistake” on Israel’s part would be its last because a new war in the region would erase it from the political geography of the world.

The following are excerpts from his speech:

Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami: “Today, with the grace and power of God and the wise leadership of your honor [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei], we have conquered major, key posts. The communication lines of the Islamic Revolution have become thousands of kilometers deep.


“The sidelining of America in the region’s security and political developments, the accelerated decline of the regime of [Western] domination, and the paralyzing of the ‘cobweb regimes’ that are on the verge of collapse indicate the waning of the evil regime of global arrogance, in the center of which lies America.

“Today, friends and enemies alike have realized that the deterrence capabilities of the revolution have almost reached their peak. Not only has the reputation of threat and power of the U.S. declined to a great extent, but the Zionist regime no longer poses a threat. In other words, not only is it incapable of any viable threat, but it knows that the smallest mistake on its part would be its last because any new war will erase that regime from the political geography of the world.”
