Iran: We’re Ready For ‘Decisive Battle’ With Israel And United States

| February 12, 2014

In the latest in a series of warnings against the US, Iran’s chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi warned the Islamic republic’s foes that Iran is prepared for a “decisive battle” if attacked. “We are ready for the decisive battle with America and the Zionist regime (Israel),” Fars news agency quoted Firouzabadi as saying Wednesday.


He also warned neighboring nations not to allow any attack to be launched on Iran from their soil. “We do not have any hostility toward regional states, but if we are ever attacked from the American bases in the region we will strike that area back,” he said.

Washington has many military bases in the region, including in Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. US Secretary of State John Kerry said late last month that if diplomacy with Iran fails, “the military option of the United States is ready and prepared to do what it would have to do.”

But Firouzabadi accused the US of bluffing.

“Over the past decade, they brought their forces but came to the conclusion that they can’t attack us, and left,” he said, dismissing the US military threat as nothing but a “political bluff.” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that the West should not have any delusions about using a military option.

“I say explicitly, if some have delusions of having any threats against Iran on their tables, they need to wear new glasses. There is no military option against Iran on any table in the world,” he said.

On Sunday, Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Navy Commander Ali Fadavi said the US knows that its aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf would be sunk if it launched a military strike on Iran.

“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,” said Fadavi, according to Fars news agency.

“They cannot hide themselves in the sea since the entire Middle East region, 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.”

Also Sunday, Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan touted the Iranian military’s ability to respond to an American attack, Fars reported.

“The Iranian Armed Forces are an intertwined and coherent complex that can give a decisive response to any threat at any level and any place under the command of the commander-in-chief,” Dehqan said in a ceremony marking the 35th anniversary of the revolution that brought the current Islamic regime to power.

“The enemy can never assess and think of the range of the response given by the powerful and mighty Armed Forces of the Islamic Iran,” he added.

The bellicose rhetoric follows Saturday’s announcement by an Iranian admiral that Iran had dispatched warships to the North Atlantic, while Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denounced the Americans as liars who, while professing to be friends of Tehran, would bring down his regime if they could. He also said it was “amusing” that the US thought Iran would reduce its “defensive capabilities.”

On Friday, Iranian state TV ran a documentary featuring a computerized video of Iran’s drones and missiles bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben-Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor in a simulated retaliation for a hypothetical Israeli or American strike on the Islamic Republic.

Iran is due to resume talks on Monday in Vienna with the P5+1 — Britain, France, the United States, Russia and China plus Germany — aimed at reaching a comprehensive nuclear accord following a landmark interim agreement struck in November.

Western nations have long suspected Iran of covertly pursuing nuclear weapons alongside its civilian program, allegations denied by Tehran, which insists its nuclear activities are entirely peaceful. Neither the United States nor Israel has ruled out military action to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, if diplomacy fails. source – Times of Israel

  2. Wily says:

    I-ran is suicidal & delusional!

  3. The bulk of US citizens that are commited to its heritage and posterity are also commited to its protection and are ready to serve, fight and protect their homeland. Not necessarily in that order. The answers to the first two questions are undoubtley YES.
    Biblically speaking, we know that the last and final battle will be over Israel and faught in the middle east. Any aggression or signs of war should bring all believers to a hysterical praise to GOD.

  4. Kristi says:

  9. beloved777 says:

    Yes,indeed they have nukes by now thanks to this wicked administration.God,help us all.

  10. Leo says:

    Iran is ready because Iran has the Russians and Chinese backing them in the event of war with the U.S. and Israel . For the Iranian Ships to venture out into the Atlantic . they certainly have Russian Subs backing them . Those subs are nuclear .



  13. STL says:

    Beloved777:You said God help us, if you recieved Salvation from Jesus Christ, then he already help you, if not, time is getting short, you better find salvation in Jesus Christ.

  14. STL says:

    LEO: The USA will not help Israel, Obama will abandoned Israel when Israel will need the USA the most. But that will be the downfall of the USA. God will be completely against the USA.

    Iran already considers the USA as cowards, because Obama voice the Red Line with Syria, then Obama back down from attacking Syria.

  15. STL says:

    Why is everyone so concerned for the USA, if your a Christian’s then our leader in Jesus Christ and our home is in heaven in God’s heavenly kingdom. We have no concerned for the unrighteous as their leader is Satan.

  16. Post in my name anytime Enjoy yourself, I must really bother you, because your so childish!

  17. beloved777 says:

    Yes,born again for many years STL fyi.By,the way so are my kids.

  18. MRH says:

    @STL: I’d lay off the booze or drugs bro, they tend to pollute your thinking and spelling capabilities :mrgreen:

  19. Beloved777: I’m very happy for you being BAC, we will meet in Heaven very soon!

  20. MRH: that’s between you and God, its your life, now mine!

  21. MRH says:

    @Steven T. LaRue: What’s that supposed to mean? I was commenting to STL’s kooky posts not yours ;-)

  22. Lacey says:

    Grow Up!! Everyone knows S T L doesn’t write or talk like that…you should be ashamed!!

  23. MRH: STL and Steven T. La Rue are the same person, and if you change your life when you accepted Jesus Christ Salvation why are you still drinking booze and taking drugs?

  24. Lacey: as I believe its Lezlow, he was our poster, the Atheist, and he just love insulting Jesus Christ!

  25. MRH says:

    @Steven T. LaRue: So what are you doing now STL, trying to be funny.. fool folks? Obviously your silly chameleon charade is eventually going to lose interest here :-(

    MRH: STL and Steven T. La Rue are the same person, and if you change your life when you accepted Jesus Christ Salvation why are you still drinking booze and taking drugs?

    What’s your point bro? Are you without sin? Btw I only drink beer and wine now, and I only take prescription drugs for my varied health conditions ;-)

    P.S. Is booze a sin in and of itself? Did not Noah and Lot drink wine, both even got drunk? And did not Jesus make and serve good wine (not grape juice) at a wedding ceremony?

  26. Nteb: First thank you, as I believe its Lezlow that you banned several months ago, because his comment against Jesus Christ. There must be someway to stop others, not using the call sign that was stet up in the first place with you?

    I know alot of us have different opinions about the word of God, but we do not try to insult other in the forms that Lezlow has tried before.

    But thank you again!

  27. MRH: What your saying about Noah or Lot drinking or Jesus at the wedding ceremony, was just occasionally, but you already said, you had a long continue battle with drugs and booze, but when we recieve Salvation, we try to change those bad habits.

  28. MRH says:

    I just banned the person using the STL handle….

    @NTEB: Thank you for that job. I didn’t think you folk were even paying attention. And I hope you don’t ever ban me because of my sometimes differing biblical viewpoints? :-(

    P.S. Any hope for a return to old blog format; Reply, Quote, Change? The new format is kind of awkward.

  29. MRH: Can you explain why Americans like displaying the dirty laundry or garbage out in the open where everyone can comment on it, as I see it on FACEBOOK alot. That should between that person and God, not the world? As you voice your comment to STL?

  30. MRH says:

    but you already said, you had a long continue battle with drugs and booze, but when we recieve Salvation, we try to change those bad habits.

    @Steven T. LaRue: Please remember that we each battle with whatever sins until our death or rapture. As for my drug and booze battles, the Lord is closely monitoring things (he lives inside me) ;-)

    P.S. I only have a few beers at night, and a few splashes of wine during the day. And I rarely get drunken, just mildly buzzed. Plus I eat later to sober up quickly for bedtime, and so wake up without hangovers. So do I sin horribly in it all? Ask God, what exactly constitutes sin? ;-o

  31. MRH says:

    MRH: Can you explain why Americans like displaying the dirty laundry or garbage out in the open where everyone can comment on it, as I see it on FACEBOOK alot. That should between that person and God, not the world? As you voice your comment to STL?

    @ Steven T. LaRue: I don’t know, but for certain evil floods the internet. We are in perilous times brother, and I fear things are getting worse by the hour even :-(

  32. MRH: we all fall short to Jesus Christ, but I try and keep my dirty laundry between Myself and Jesus Christ. Its no ones business how I fail God everyday, but at least when I go to him ask forgiveness of those sins, He forgives them.

  33. Rosie says:

    Alright!! All you guys disputing near the bottom, there wont be any place for that in heaven, thank God :)

  34. Ron Murphy says:

    I guess, we will know who doesn’t return?

  35. Rudy Ray says:

    I would not put it past the Iranians to bomb themselves in a non-strategic location or with ineffective capacity to do real damage as so they can point the finger at Israel or USA and take the offensive. It has been done in the past by similar. I lack all trust in these deranged people.

  36. Elsabé says:

    Well, they are crazy enough to do it. And the problem is that the world will believe these crazy sobs

  37. Mario says:

    I think we all need to be concerned about America, so many young people leaving the churches, so many false gospels flying around, our nation is in disrepair, we have a weak man as President and now the Iranian (ancient Persia) is grinding their teeth against Israel and us. I pray the Lord will take us home soon.

  38. MRH says:

    as I see it on FACEBOOK alot. That should between that person and God, not the world?

    MRH: we all fall short to Jesus Christ, but I try and keep my dirty laundry between Myself and Jesus Christ. Its no ones business how I fail God everyday, but at least when I go to him ask forgiveness of those sins, He forgives them.

    @Steven T. LaRue: Aren’t you forgetting that FACEBOOK is a secular organization, made of many faiths or none? Why would you expect the heathen to act holy/logical?

  39. MRH says:

    @Mario: It’s in bible prophecy, the AC and FP occupy the stage now. It’s only a matter of time before war prevails, but it’s still not the final war situation ;-)

  40. MRH says:

    @Rudy Ray: False flag operation? Quite likely scenario. The question is which modern minor/major wars/devastation were not ignited by such? FFO list includes; WWI, WWII, Pearl Harbor, Viet Nam, Gulf War, Iraq War, etc. Did I miss any? At present the elusive ‘terror war’ prevails onward :-(

  41. MRH says:

    Well, they are crazy enough to do it. And the problem is that the world will believe these crazy sobs

    @Elsabé: No, they are Satan’s servants, not loonies as you think. FYI the backstage evil elite run the global show, not the players on the global stage, they are merely willing puppets on strings of the dark masters hand ;-)

    P.S. God still controls the tide of future dark events :-)

  42. MRH says:

    @Steven T. LaRue: Yes, but only one was called Gulf War (1991), the other was just called the Iraq War (2003) ;-)



    Isaiah 59: 19. So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in; like a flood the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.



    Isaiah 54: 17. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.


  44. TeresaB says:

    #26 I have a question. Don’t you have our email address there w our name? If so then you should see Pastor Steven LaRue and STL are indeed the same person, as well as ???. So what good comes from banning one part of a person? thank you

  45. J says:

    These idiots are talking ‘cookoo’ gibberish!

  46. J says:

    Russia and the muslim will be exterminated-by Almighty GOD upon the mountains of HOLY ISRAEL- as HE writes in the Holy Bible!

  47. Teresab says:

    #26 I have a question. STL and Pastor Steven LaRue are the same person, how can you ban one w/o the other. Don’t you have our email addresses to match? He has stated he uses other names, so how does this work again? thanks

  48. Teresa, I tried the STL still works!

  49. MRH says:

    @Teresa: I watched ban occur, and afterward only the real STL posts remained, the impostors posts were all gone. So it seems that NTEB banned at email level, not by fake handle.

    P.S. Anyway, hopefully this all instant ban provides a good lesson for potential future impostors?

  50. MRH says:

    @Teresa: Although seemingly not with NTEB, some sites actually ban at IP level, which makes it next to impossible to re-join site, without sites staff allowance.

    P.S. I think NTEB may have possibly prior banned me on my other email addy (, the one I use regularly, as it no longer seems to work here on the blogs. And I’ve tried correcting things at WordPress, but unto no avail :-(

  51. MRH: We all know it was “Lezlow,” that sent those emails, as he really hates christians, from all those atheist comments of his, he did the same thing before! Some way he’ll find another way, to come back!

  52. MRH: I just love all those comments from Iran against Israel.

    But God has the upper hand!

    Iranians are serving two masters! Then own agenda and Satan’s.

    This summer will be a Firestorm in the Middle East.

    And Obama, will finally show his hidden agenda, as he will abandon Israel!

  53. MRH says:

    @Greg K. Liebig Sr.: I honestly don’t think Satan really cares a whim about Gods plans, as his fate is sealed unto the eternal fire of destruction ;-)

    God is allowing Satan his final stand, but even so is monitoring what he can and cannot do. Were Satan to have his druthers, he’d wipe Israel off the map in a heartbeat, and as well nuke the planet. Anyway, in the end he gets part of his desires met, but not until God is done with collecting the holy kingdom :-)

    Jhn 3:16 KJV – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    2Pe 3:9 KJV – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    P.S. God has his secret plans of redeeming the worthy ;-)

  54. MRH: Isreal is proving the Ezekiel prophecy as Russia hook is in the jaw, Israel will have Liquidifed Natural Gas. That they will supply to Europe and Jordon and Egypt. Possibly why Jordon will be more friendier to Israel in the last days.

    But it will hurt Russia’s cash flow!

  55. MRH says:

    @Steven T. LaRue: Regarding Lezlow, all he has to do is get another email addy somehow. I actually have several myself, but only use two anymore, mainly the above one ;-)

    As for Israel vs. Iran, the latter serves Satan, not their own agendas. In fact governments in general serve Satan, whether they are aware of fact or not. They are all puppets on strings, including the US presidents and EU popes. And in the end there will be both major secular and religious battles, just like during the dark ages.

    After all, the NWO is a multifaceted diabolical entity, created by Satan through willing orders of Illuminati. Run by the power elite bankers, who are directed by Satan. And all noted are merely puppets on strings, ignorantely waiting to be cast into the eternal flames.

    P.S. Christ is the only escape portal, but many fail to see fact, having been supremely deceived by Satan!

  56. MRH says:

    @Steven T. LaRue: Daniels 4 beasts hold the clue to much modern mystery ;-)

  57. TeresaB says:

    STL well guess you outsmarted them again!
