OPINION (DW) – Former Iranian Minister of Defense General Hossein Dehghan, currently an advisor for defense affairs to Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei, says that Iran will put America in “the garbage bin of history” if attacked and will eliminate Israel from “the face of the earth.” The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported that Dehghan made the comments on June 20 in an interview on Al-Nujaba TV (Iraq). “It has become clear that what is important to the (Americans) is to protect the lives of their

soldiers, and the equipment in their bases in the region,” Dehghan said. “They know full well that most of those bases are within the range of our missiles, and that our military can totally obliterate those bases. They consider this even before they take into account the lives and property of their allies.” “Trump proved once again that he is merely an agent of his administration’s interests, that a war in this region would not be a walk in the park, that the United States is by no means ready for war, and that completely understands how strong Iran is,” Dehghan continued.
