Iran’s IRGC: If Trump Imposes Sanctions, U.S. Military Bases Should Move Outside Our Missile Range

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on Sunday delivered a thinly-veiled threat to launch missile strikes on U.S. military bases in the region if the United States imposes new sanctions against the regime.

State media quoted IRGC commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari as saying that if the U.S. introduces new punitive measures under legislation signed by President Trump last August, the U.S. had better “transfer its regional bases to 2,000 kilometers away – that is, as far as the range of Iranian missiles.”

Both Jafari and other senior Iranian officials also warned against any additional move to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization. Unnamed U.S. officials cited in news reports suggest this may be on the cards.

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s foreign policy adviser went to far as to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran would not exist if not for the IRGC.

The adviser, former foreign minister Ali Akbar Velayati, called the IRGC a “holy” institution, without which the Assad regime and Iraqi governments would by now have been toppled; leaving ISIS in control of Baghdad and Damascus.

Before this time next week, Trump is required by law to report to Congress on whether Iran is complying with its obligations under the nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran's leadership has always been a bunch of arrogant twits. I pray they are actually stupid enough to launch one of their worthless missiles at a US base. Then we could finally end this mess.

This dog's bark is FAR worse than its bite. Talk is cheap, and if these fools actually SHOULD attack our bases, they will quickly -- and effectively -- get spanked. They should be aware that Barack H. Obama is no longer President, and his pacifist legacy didn't survive his presidency. Death to Iran!

And if they begin to bomb any of our bases, they better damn well figure out a way to move their godforsaken hunk of sand & dirt they call Iran out of our range! If it was up to me, these savage bastards would all be hunks of charcoal glowing at night!

Hey Mohammad, better take a good look around. You have many people in your region that want you destroyed and they are ready willing and able (thanks to US help) to blow you right off the earth! and there will not be enough virgins to take care of you. Better spend a time with your favorite goat or lamb.

Such idiotic comments, never considering the consequences of their actions, how many thousands of more Americans would die and for what to try to make Iran do as a few think they should, we have an agreement made by the 5 major powers in the world and the US is the only one fighting about the agreement, and it is coincidental that the USA is the only country supporting Israel barbaric policies against Palestine. That sure does seem to be a connection here. Go ahead and start something in Iran which will cost thousands of American lives and I would bet the one's starting the problem will not be the one's dying for what was started.

Yes, there were five other nations who signed on to that piece of crap deal, all in hopes of delaying the inevitable -- that is, an Iranian nuclear arsenal. In the meantime, all of the signatories were willing to accept the continued and accelerated terrorist attacks sponsored by Iran, and paid for with the monies the Westerners give to the Ayatollahs. Fools.

Then how would you have handled it any better, not negotiate and let Iran get a usable Nuclear weapon, I am sure that Iran already has a nuke not perfected small enough to launch on a missile. If you think you can bomb facilities that are believed to be up to 5 miles deep in hardened silo type structures, the only thing the MOB would do was kill a lot person on the surface and then Iran would release it chemical and ballistic missiles most likely at Israel and even if Israel was to destroy them the fall out would wipe half of the Israel people off the map who are not responsible for what their leaders do just like here in the US where the citizen just tries to make a living and take care of family like any other country, it is the leaders who are the problems.

Yes...according to the democrat's & RINO party it better to appease the Iranian's ... by maintaining the ankle grabbing posture....just saying...it has worked so well for Obama....????

No person who understands the Muslims will never trust what they say. Their religion encourages deceit and lies to gain any thing that may be of value to the conquering of the non Islamist..

very true

Iran (IRGC) assumes that the US is not spoiling for a fight. Remember Tonkin and Iran Air Flight 655

Here is the only sort of agreement that those theocratic assholes in Iran will understand:

If you fire anything at Israel, the USA will do nothing if Israel fires back. If you fire anything at US Assets, Khorramshahr and your Island oil processing facilities will be leveled. Have a nice day!!

I think if Iran starts sending missiles to our bases, our bases will move closer to Iran and start taking out anything that they can. Especially any IRGC bases and training facilities.

I see Robert Webster missed the part of what Obama gave away just to delay their development of nuclear weapons. and what it cost us, we are no further ahead then we were before, yet we paid a known enemy of the Middle East to finance their development of Nukes.

Wake up Bob!
