No One in Their Right Mind Would Give up his Defense Forces; Opening Talks with US Impedes our Progress

Caspian International News Agency– Ayatollah Khamenei, today morning (September 18, 2016) in a meeting with commanders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, said that Revolutionary Guards are “the strong bastion of revolution”, and “the key element of internal and external security and defense, and the distinctive and true identity needed for the countries progress and move towards its ambitions”. Hinting to some deviations for opposing the main components of the soft power he said, “One of the major components of soft power in Iran is profound distrust of dominant powers, especially US, and this distrust is growing day by day.”

Underlining that defending internal and external security is one of the major responsibilities of the Revolutionary Guards, he noted, “Revolutionary Guards, in addition to security and defense issues, are influential in other areas such as, construction, serving the poor, cultural and art issues, and production of a revolutionary thought; and these actions should continue, and people should be informed about them.”

The Supreme Leader of Revolution referred to some recent comments that considered the progress of some countries to be due to removing their military organizations, said, “It is hard to believe that the people who these words have been attributed to have really said them, but if these words have been really stated, they are wrong.”

He underlined, “No one in their right mind would give up his defense forces, so the defensive force of the country should be improved day by day.”

The Supreme Leader of Revolution, considered “faith” the main cause of strengthening the country’s defense capability, and said “this is what we call asymmetrical war, the opponent has the necessary tools and advanced equipment but they lack faith.”

Ayatollah Khamenei maintained that “independence, culture and beliefs” make the identity of a nation and stated, “Why should one neglect his own true identity and follow the wrong and vulgar ways of the West.”

Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that distrusting US is essential, and said, “Unfortunately some are not willing to accept this distrust, and although their tongue says that US is our enemy, their true feeling doesn’t reflect this.”

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to a historical example, “in the case of Constitution, when we trusted the Britons, a major blow came to Iran, and the country fell 75 years behind.”

He addressed some countries in the region and noted, “If you are not careful and do not understand the deceits of the dominating regime of US and are deceived by their smile, you too may fall 50 or even 100 years behind.”

He underlined, “I am not worried about the future, and I believe that with God’s blessings, the tomorrow of our country will be better than its today.”
