Salami: “US losing its bases in the region”

Thursday, 31 May 2012

In his speech at the Stable Security Conference at Imam Hussein University, Sardar Hossein Salami, Acting Commander of IRGC, said that we are facing the most complex, difficult and strange period in the history of Islam and Iran. Accelerated geopolitical development is currently affecting our global, national and regional security situation, especially in Muslim countries that are undermining the existing geopolitical structure established by Western powers. Because these events are rooted in Islamic ideology they are wearing down the geopolitics of the Western powers in favor of geopolitics based on the Islamic Revolution. The Zionist regime, the source of the threat, is losing its geopolitical support in the region. He further claimed that local events can have regional and global effects, and in the present century events are controlled by strategy; today anyone who has the ability to create an event, could change strategy and manage the changes. Referring to the Hezbollah, Salami said, “From our perspective, Hezbollah is a brave jihadist group, with faith and ideology. Today, no equation can be constructed in the Middle East without factoring Hezbollah in.” In another part of his speech, he stressed that the US is losing its infrastructure and bases in the region, particularly in Afghanistan and Iraq. Iran plans to make the most of its geopolitical position. “The potential and status of the Persian Gulf is solely in the hands of Iran and this can instill fear and deter the enemy. We have the ability to influence the mind of the enemy and that is a new deterrent power. Every time we talk about our geopolitical ability, the whole world becomes nervous.”
