Dehghan to US SecDef: World long passed ‘era of gunfight’
Brig. Gen. Dehghan said Wed. Takfiri-Wahhabi terrorists are committing crimes all across the world with US-made weapons and ammunition, adding US Secretary of Defense should know the era of gunfight has long passed.
Iranian Minister of Defense made the remarks in reaction to the recent comments by the American Secretary of Defense James Mattis, adding “I advise Mr. Mattis to study the military adventures of the previous US governments in Vietnam, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and recently in Syria and Yemen and the long and shameful records of war crimes committed there by US forces so that he will begin to understand the roots of his current blame games and baseless accusations.”
He went on to add, “Mr. Mattis and the so-called American strategists should know that the era of gunfights, accusations, and interventions from a self-righteous position has long passed, and the remarks by the US Secretary of Defense is just a game of switching the place of the defendant with the pretender.”
“It is advisable that American leaders only seek to settle their own internal issues and stop creating new crises and escalating conflicts in Korea and the Middle East," he added.
