Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami says the enemies are gradually understanding the real power of the Islamic Republic.
Addressing a Sunday ceremony, General Salami said the enemy’s perception of one’s power is more important than the power itself.
“In the past, the others’ perception of Iran’s power used to be much lower than the real power, and [Iran’s] perception of others’ power was much more than their real power,” he noted.
However, he added, the others’ perception of our power is gradually getting closer to the reality.
Once they know how powerful we are, no one will decide to get engaged in a war with a powerful country, he noted.
General Salami said the enemy has already acknowledged Iran’s military power, and thus, they have shifted their focus now on the economic war, psychological operations, and political pressures.
