Tehran - The West’s frequent use of military threats and citing of their ability to attack Iran at will has become a joke among Iranian commanders in the military, according to a high ranking military official in the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency reported on Wednesday.

Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Asoudi alluded to the West’s hesitancy to use military force and mocked its resolve while speaking to troops in the North.

“We should thank Obama for refreshing us by referring to his ‘options on the table’, including the military one; we just relax and laugh at such ridiculous words,” Asoudi said.

Other top commanders have also mocked such rhetoric coming from western officials, especially President Barack Obama’s use of the common refrain of “all options on the table” while negotiations between world powers and Iran were being discussed.

In May, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s top commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari,  dismissed US officials’ frequent military threats against Iran as ridiculous remarks, according to Fars.

“Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s pride and might has made the world’s biggest materialistic and military powers kneel down before the Islamic Republic’s might,” Jafari said.

“The military option that the westerners speak of constantly is ridiculous and they know that if the military option could have produced any result, they would have already used it many times, and today they have shifted their focus to other types of threats,” he added.

I agree with the Iranians. Iraq II was was such an ill thought out catastrophe that the US will not soon again commit ground forces in the Middle East.

The only reason why people would entertain the idea of voting for the Donald is because he is the anti Obama and the country is fed up with the current administration.

"Respect is something one EARNS" He DID earn it. Elected 2 times for President with a big majority of americans and 72% of the Yiden, reduced Unemployment by 50%, Increased Stocks 300%, Housing 50%, No WAR, No 9/11 in USA, No suicide bombings in Israel, Israel is safer and wealthier than any time in its history etc. Compare this with our last President with 9/11, Unemployment, Housing collapse, worst recession since 1929, 2 wars, Daily suicide bombings in Israel etc. What else do you want.Sorry, He cant change the color of his skin.

Housing increased 50%? Big deal unless you are selling and pocketing the money but if you want to upgrade it will cost you double to purchase.

Stocks tripled? what percentage of people have money in the stock market? Do you know that more families own cats than own stocks?

Israel less suicide bombings? I fail to see the correlation to Obama as last I checked Israel wasn't on US soil.

OBL killed by Obama? Last I checked it was all from the information gathered under Bush (not Clinton who if he did his job there would have been no 9/11)

What about ISIS & the Mid East being a breeding ground for terrorist because of Obama?
What about the lowest level of employment rate in over 30 years?
What about banks paying no interest rate?
What about only 22% of Americans saying they are better off now than before Obama became president.
What about the Billions spent on the failed Obamacare?
What about the Obama scandals from Hillary to Holder to IRS ?
What about the millions of illegals that entered this great nation?
What about Blacks being worse off under Obama?

I fail to see how we are better off with Obama.

OH and BTW I would vote for Ben Carson in heart beat !!!

Respect? Are you mad, or under the influence?

Obama has careened the US into an abyss of mockery before the entire world. he sold out to socialism, Islam, and terror. He is a disgrace to all, and he needs to be replaced. We are stuck waiting it out for a drop longer, but almost any replacement will have to be better than this traitor. No, I won't respect him. And the same goes for any other enemy of morality that sneaks into public office. I have not a good wish for him, or for anyone who supports the destruction he has already brought to us, and tries to continue. I will never apologize for calling him names that are undeniable truth. You may lie if you like, but I choose not remain honest and truthful. You, my friend, are either in complete denial (get a therapist), delusional (get a psychiatrist and medication), are yourself a socialist and a terror sympathizer (get lost), under the influence of a psychedelic or mind altering drug (get sober), or just plain some sort of a blind idiot (hopeless).
