Iran General: 'We Welcome War With the US'

Iran is not afraid of threats of war from the United States, and in fact is ready to take on any threat, a top Iranian military official said.

"We welcome war with the U.S. as we do believe that it will be the scene for our success to display the real potentials of our power," Brig. General Hossein Salami said in an interview on state-run Iranian television on Wednesday.

Salami, lieutenant commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), made the comments following a meeting between Secretary of State John Kerry and Israeli officials to discuss the Iranian threat, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

The Obama administration has stated that military action is not off the table if Iran refuses to sign an acceptable nuclear agreement this summer.

Uh huh. the muslims talk smack but wouldn't last 48 hours against the USA.
But they continue to talk because they know they could sink one of our carriers and goofball obama would "strongly condemm" the attack and press the U.N for "sanctions". And apologize if our actions offended any peaceful muslims.
A REAL American president would turn that third world sandbox into glass.
