A Stop-the-Presses Alert from Iran Focus, with thanks to JE:
Tehran, Iran, Jun. 08 — The Supreme Commander of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic sought to become the top power in the region within the next two decades, the state-run news agency ISNA reported….
Safavi said that the IRGC was actively working to transform the Islamic Republic into the “number one power in the region” within the next 20 years….
“As a military commander I believe that the world’s energy security is dependent on the Middle East and Iran”, he said.
Yes — unfortunately. And that is because no one in Washington has the guts or foresight to do what it takes to change this situation.
