Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, the commander of the IRGC Navy, said in a December 13, 2022 public address that was broadcast by SNN Internet TV (Iran) that America "cannot even imagine" the missiles Iran has, and that Iran even has missiles that can reach the Pleiades star cluster. Tangsiri also said that the missiles displayed in drills are not the ones Iran would use in war, and he mocked American soldiers. For more about Admiral Tangsiri, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 9807, 9294, 8748, 8316, 7416, 7213, and 7190.

Alireza Tangsiri: "We have missiles that the [Americans] cannot even imagine.


"What we demonstrate during drills is not what we will bring to war.


"Thank God, when you think about our missiles, consider [a range] that begins at 10 km, and ends in the Pleiades [star cluster].


"No country has succeeded in installing missiles on six- or eight-meter-long boats, but we succeeded in doing so. Inshallah, you will see this next time these vessels are commissioned to service. We also launched [missiles] successfully.


"The first slap God gave the Americans was when four Americans and two Kuwaitis tried to cross towards the Arvand River. Our guys approached them. One of the Americans asked one of the Kuwaitis: 'Who are these?' The Kuwaiti said that they were IRGC. [The Americans were alarmed] 'IRGC?!' And, unfortunately, one of them wet himself. They really do need Easy Life [adult diapers]. I saw the guy who wet himself, he was two-meters tall.


"When we wanted to release them... Unfortunately, they would not let this be made public. You never saw these four [Americans on TV]. This was 2003. Mr. Khatami and his people would not let this be made public, unfortunately. For us, it was a sign of our strength, but they would not let this [be published]. So, in short, we released them. When they were about to leave, I made this 'V' sign to the guy who wet himself, and he lowered his gaze. These urination episodes continued. It happened again in 2015. Then, it went a step further [from number one to number two]. These are the people who want to hold out against Islam?"
