TEHRAN Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said that the US forces deployed in the Persian Gulf are facing strong psychological pressure, noting that they will soon conclude that they should leave the region.
"They feel much pressure as soon as they come across and see us. The US marine accidents have increased very much as a result of the psychological pressures exerted on them. When they enter the Persian Gulf, they say to each other that they have entered hell. And when they leave the Persian Gulf, they say that they have left the hell. They are under hard psychological conditions," General Fadavi said, addressing a forum in the town of Abali near Tehran on Thursday.
He referred to US President Donald Trump's remarks that establishment of security in the Persian Gulf is not related to the US due to his cost-benefit logic, and said, "Change of strategy for a country which claims to be a superpower is not easy and they don't do such a shit if not forced."
"The US will soon conclude that staying in the region is of no benefit to them at all because it has understood in the past few years that they will not gain victory in this fight."
In relevant remarks in May, Top Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi underlined that the US was forced to pull out military forces from West Asia after it failed to establish a footprint in the region.
"The Americans are forced to withdraw from West Asia because they are an oppressive government and cannot establish security in the region," General Rahim Safavi said.
"Iran has paid a high cost to establish security in West Asia in pursuit of peace in the region but the Americans, the British and the Zionists are considered as the main source of insecurity in the region and of course, most of their attempts are focused on selling weapons and looting the resources of the regional states," he added.
Rahim Safavi referred to the US hostile measures against Iran, and said Washington and its allies have sustained a defeat from Iran, Russia and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group in Syria and their Greater Middle-East Plan has fallen flat, and Iran has been able to thwart their plots in the region.
