Following is an excerpt from an interview with Deputy Iranian Chief of Staff General Mohammad Reza Naghdi, which aired on Al-Manar TV on February 9, 2009.
General Mohammad Reza Naghdi: Our strength should not be underestimated. It is not restricted to [our] geographical borders. We can fight wherever we want. We will choose on what land to fight. We will choose the venue for the fighting and defense. Our missile and airforce capabilities do not fall short of those of our enemy. If the Zionist entity decides to carry out such a stupid act, our responses will be crushing and decisive. Our power is not limited to the missiles and the airforce. Our response will be the liberation of Jerusalem.
Interviewer: Allah willing. Allah willing.
