IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami said in an October 3, 2019 speech that aired on Ofogh TV (Iran) that the sidelining of the U.S. in the region's security and political decisions, the accelerated decline of Western domination, and the paralyzing of the "cobweb regimes on the verge of collapse" indicate a "waning of the evil regime of global arrogance," which he said is led by the United States. General Salami said that the Islamic Revolution's "deterrence capabilities" have almost reached their peak, that Israel no longer poses a threat to Iran, and that the smallest "mistake" on Israel's part would be its last because a new war in the region would erase it from the political geography of the world.

Following are excerpts:

 

General Hossein Salami: Today, with the grace and power of God and the wise leadership of your honor [Khamenei], we have conquered major key posts. The communication lines of the Islamic Revolution have become thousands of kilometers deep.

The sidelining of America in the region's security and political developments, the accelerated decline of the regime of [Western] domination, and the paralyzing of the cobweb regimes that are on the verge of collapse indicate the waning of the evil regime of global arrogance, in the center of which lies America. Today, friends and enemies alike have realized that the deterrence capabilities of the Revolution have almost reached their peak. Not only has the reputation of threat and power of the U.S. declined to a great extent, but the Zionist regime no longer poses a threat. In other words, not only is it incapable of any viable threat, but it knows that the smallest mistake on its part would be its last, because any new war will erase that regime from the political geography of the world.
