Tehran, Iran, Dec. 06 – The Supreme Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) declared on Tuesday that the United States would suffer a greater defeat in Iraq than it did in its war in Vietnam.

Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi told a gathering of senior military commanders in the north-eastern city of Mashad that a future Iraq would be in the hands of Muslims.

Claiming that the U.S. was attempting to establish a world order in which only it would be a superpower, Safavi said, “America’s uni-polarised policy in the world has been met with failure”.

Referring to the upcoming December 15 parliamentary elections in Iraq, he said, “More than 50 percent of Iraq’s parliament will be comprised of committed and Islamic forces. The future of Iraq will be in the hands of Muslims”.

Washington, the IRGC chief said, was faced with two options in Iraq. “It must either rapidly withdraw from Iraq or stay to the point that Iraq becomes another Vietnam for America. Both options will lead to defeat”.

“Iraq has become a great quagmire for America. This is because of [U.S. President George W.”> Bush’s warmongering policies”.

Safavi said that Washington was attempting to depict the Islamic Republic as impotent. “The mix of Iran and Islam is a great threat for America”.

“The U.S. knows that if it creates problems for us, its 150,000 troops that are based in Iraq will be faced with problems too”.
