SNSC Secretary: Iran to Give Tough Response to Threats

Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Saeed Jalili warned enemies of Iran's tough response to any aggression or threat, stressing that the country would respond to any attack with maximum power, Fars News reported.

"We will give a full-power response to any threat against the Islamic Republic of Iran," Jalili stressed, adding that Iran's crushing response to aggressors will make any enemy "regretful".

He underlined that the Islamic Republic is now at the highest level of might and power and has become a source of inspiration for the other nations, and added that the Iranian people's support for their government and the opportunities created by the regional and international developments have doubled the country's power.

Jalili said that enemies are attempting to divert the world public opinion from the Islamic Republic of Iran's might and soft power, but all their efforts are in vain.

The US and Israel started intensifying their war rhetoric against Iran in mid October, but after they saw Iran's firm response, both Washington and Tel Aviv withdrew from their previous stances.

US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had in November underlined Iran's major role in global economy, and said the US would not dare to attack Iran since the move would devastate, not just the US, but the world economy.

"There are going to be economic consequences to that (an Iran strike), that could impact not just on our economy but the world economy," Panetta told reporters at the time.

Analysts believe that the statements by the US defense secretary prove that the US and Israel have intensified their war rhetoric against Iran since almost two months ago in a bid to convince other countries, specially Russia and China, to accept harsh diplomatic actions, including sanctions against Iran, to avoid a US and Israeli strike on Tehran.

On November 10, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned enemies about Iran's tough response to any aggression or even threat, stressing that the country would respond with full force to any attack.

"Iran is not a nation to sit still and just observe threats from fragile materialist powers which are being eaten by worms from inside," Ayatollah Khamenei told students at a Tehran military college.

"Anyone who harbors any thought of invading the Islamic Republic of Iran - or even if the thought crosses their mind - should be prepared to receive strong blows and the steel fists of the military, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and the Basij (volunteer) force, backed by the entire Iranian nation," he said.

"Iran will respond with full force to any aggression or even threats in a way that will demolish the aggressors from within," he added.
