DUBAI – Iran does not seek war, the leader of the country’s elite revolutionary guards said Sunday.

“The difference between us and them is that they are afraid of war and do not have the will for it,” says Major General Hossein Salami, quoted by the local news agency Fars.

“The American political system is full of cracks,” Salami said. “Even though it’s impressive, it has osteoporosis. In fact, the history of the United States is like the World Trade Center towers that collapse with a sudden blow.”

The Donald Trump administration designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization in April, making it the first military institution of a foreign government to obtain that term.

The views come from rising tensions between Tehran and Washington and just a few days after drone attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure are carried out by Iranian support of Houthi rebels from Yemen. The US later hit much of its diplomatic staff from Iraq and cited threats and evidence of increased activity from Iranian-backed proxies in the country.

But the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has met foreign leaders and dismissed the potential for war. “There is no war because we also do not want war, nor anyone who has that idea or illusion that it can confront Iran in the region,” Zarif told local media Sunday.

Weeks of Escalation

A ramp-up in Military Control from both sides has regional observers and America’s western allies worried that a misjudgment could spark a full blow.

The Vikings earlier saw the White House broadcast news of American bombers and war wars deployed to the Persian Gulf and quoted “troubling and escalating” threats coming from Iran.

Earlier this month, Iran announced that it would end some of its key obligations for the 2015 Nuclear Contract – returning to higher enrichment levels and storing uranium – if the European signatories failed to save the country’s unfortunate oil and banking sectors were severely hit by sanctions.

The trump administration has tightened its crushing on Iranian oil exports and its metal industry as part of the “top press” campaign, the leadership The Islamic Republic leaders described the country’s economic difficulties as harder than those during the brutal Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s .

While some say that this pressure may force Iran into the negotiating table, most analysts agree that the country will not surrender at any time soon despite President Donald Trump’s open invitation to his leaders to “call me”.

Reports have emerged from the internal division of the White House, describing the national security advisor John Bolton as rocking for war while Trump is still reluctant. The leaders have said outwardly that they do not want war and prefer a diplomatic solution, but some experts worry that the maximal demands of the administration do not give rise to any ramp for any party to back down.
