IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami said that the Qods Force has mastered the art of defeating America's policy, strategy, and power. He made these remarks in interview with Channel 2 (Iran) that aired on May 5, 2021. He explained that diminishing and eroding the power of the "American empire" and forcing it to disintegrate along wide fronts is a "great thing." General Salami further referred to Israel, saying that the "Zionist entity" has recently exposed its vulnerability, which is its commercial shipping around the world.
General Hossein Salami: "From all the aspects of power, a simple calculation shows that the Americans are the most unique empire in human history. Diminishing that power, eroding it, making it void, depleting it from within, and forcing it to disintegrate along wide fronts is a great thing. It is a form of art, to create power while the enemy invades, and when there is no classic and organized [military] power.
"Look, this is the art of Qods Force. Perhaps it has not been declared so far. This is the art of defeating America's policy, strategy, and power. All together. Qods Force does this. It continues to do this.
A month or two ago, all the vulnerabilities of the Zionist entity were demonstrated. For example, it was shown that the commercial shipping of the Zionist regime are vulnerable anywhere in the world."
