Iranian Official: 'If America Wants To Try Its Luck Against Us, [It Should Know That] We Are Capable Of Mobilizing 9 Million Fighters... In Under 10 Days'. (Memri).
In a September 25, 2016 speech to a Tehran political circle, Mohsen Rafighdoost, who was minister of the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War and who heads the Noor Foundation, said that the secret of the victory of Iran's Islamic Revolution was Iranians' total obedience to the leader. He said that today the IRGC ground forces are "five times better" than the U.S. Army, and that the Iranian regime is capable of deploying nine million troops against it in less than 10 days.
Rafighdoost added that Iran's missiles in Tehran and the northwest of the country can reach Tel Aviv, and expressed his yearning for Israel to launch a missile at Iran so that Iran could "flatten Tel Aviv." He also said that Islamic Revolution founder Ayatollah Khomeini established Hizbullah in Lebanon to promote the Islamization of other countries, and that today, in the era of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the organization has become "a supreme force in the region."
