Tehran, Iran, Sep. 11 Irans Revolutionary Guards have been following closely the way the United States government has been handling Hurricane Katrina, and drawing strategic conclusions from it.
In remarks that appeared on Ansar-e Hezbollah website on Sunday, a top official of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said the devastating hurricane had exposed Americas vulnerabilities.
The mismanagement and the mishandling of the acute psychological problems brought about by Hurricane Katrina clearly showed that others can, at any given time, create a devastated war-zone in any part of the U.S., Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, the official spokesman of the IRGC, said.
If the U.S. attacks Iran, each of Americas states will face a crisis the size of Katrina, he said, referring to the massive hurricane which hit the southern coast of the United States. The smallest mistake by America in this regard will result in every single state in that country turning into a disaster zone.
How could the White House, which is impotent in the face of a storm and a natural disaster, enter a military conflict with the powerful Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly with the precious experience that we gained in the eight-year war with Iraq? he said.
Jazayeri said the hurricane havoc showed that contrary to public perception, the strength of Americas leadership is like a balloon, which can easily burst.
The Revolutionary Guards spokesman said the U.S. administrations inability to end the insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan showed the weakness of Americas defence and state departments, as well as its intelligence and security apparatus.
In a defiant tone that mirrored recent remarks by top officials of the Islamic Republic, the IRGC spokesman said, Precise information from inside America shows a lack of coordination among military, security, and political agencies in that country and brings to light the fact that others can cause many times the amount of damage compared to the blows they may receive.
Jazayeri said predictions that the U.S. would soon disintegrate into smaller independent states are completely feasible from a scientific, logical, and political point of view.
Turning his attention to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, Jazayeri said, Now is the time to tell the world public opinion about those events and the weaknesses of the White Houses response.
Dont forget one thing about that day; the U.S. President and all the American leaders ran away and hid themselves, he said.
