Iran Laughs at U.S. Military Threats

President Roosevelt once said, "Speak softly but carry a big stick," when talking about foreign relations.  His intent was clear in these words....tell your friends and enemies exactly what you intend to do and exactly what you expect from them without using threats, bluster and hyperbole.  But be prepared to pull out the big stick immediately and use it on anyone who breaks your expectations.

Team Obama has done much to make our friends and enemies doubt what we are saying and even further doubt that we will pull out a big stick on anyone anymore.

Iranian Military Official: 'We Laugh' When US Threatens To Attack

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.


While the world continues to taunt our military, our military is concerned about much larger making sure that transgender people don't get harassed in the shower, that Muslims in the army don't feel bad  and that Christian Chaplains get fired for repeating Christ's claims that He is the only way to salvation.

Friends, when nations turn against God and fall out of His favor, their mighty military can be defeated by much smaller forces.  The Bible is full of examples.

"But Dennis, America is the greatest country that has ever existed and has the strongest military in the world!  Nothing will ever happen to change that!  We will always be king of the hill and the greatest super-power to ever rule the world."

Hmmmm.....I'm pretty sure the Romans said that same thing at one point.  So did the Greeks, so did the Spaniards and so did the English....and now they are all bankrupt and can't afford to even defend their own borders.
