The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says enemies are fighting a losing war against the Islamic Republic, citing the country’s religious and popular resources as what have devastatingly turned the odds against the adversaries.

“The enemy’s fate is defeat forever,” Major General Hossein Salami told an event in Tehran on Tuesday. “The asymmetry that characterizes this warfare is rooted in the [difference between] the nature, identity, and logic of the power” that is owned by each side.

The enemies cannot take on the power that Islamic Revolution has bestowed upon Iran using material means, General Salami said, adding that the country’s triangle of its religious faith, religious leadership, and popular presence was always destined to frustrate the adversaries.

Although the Islamic Republic may be confronted with various instances of military force or economic siege, its reliance on its beliefs and convictions always enables it to ride out the storm, the commander said.

He said the adversaries had all been abortively trying to target the country since the 1979 Revolution, including by ramping up their pressures to unprecedented levels over the past three years.

Iranian Revolution’s awakening mission

The commander described the Revolution as an “awareness revolution” that served to awaken the humanity. “Reprisal of this awakening cannot be prevented now anymore,” he said.

He asserted that one of the ideals of the Revolution was saving the humanity from the “arena of modern slavery.”

“The truth that defines the Revolution features a new resurrection for the human being so it can rise up from the graveyard of ignorance and servitude,” General Salami said.

What led the enemies to their defeat?

Ever since the dawn of the Revolution, many powers, who used to appear invincible ended up witnessing the demise of their own logic and beliefs before their eyes, he said.

The IRGC chief commander considered the breakdown of the enemies’ logical tenets as the area where they have suffered their main defeat.
