Iran Launches Major Air Combat Drills, Vows Huge Blow to any Attack

Introduction – September 8, 2011

We are regularly in touch with a gifted psychic with a proven track record in foreseeing world events. He has been right so often in the past that nothing he says can be easily dismissed.

Yesterday he emailed this website a very brief note with a direct bearing on the following two articles.

We are, he wrote, on the road to World War III. Libya was one of the first steps on that road. Next will be Syria,  and events certainly seem to heading that way.

Thereafter he wrote “Venezuela” next to the words, in brackets, “(quietly in the background).”

Followed by “Korea” and the words “strong resistance”.

Next he wrote “Iran” followed by “Complete resistance” followed by an equals sign = “World War 3 Northern Hemisphere”.

As you can see he’s a man of few words but you get the general gist.

However, his closing words were the most expansive and the most telling too.

“Russia,” he wrote, “Scorpionic Nation, steps in, turns on its masters and
sets the balance right…

“Israel as we know it today annihilated.”

We don’t know for sure whether this will happen but Iran certainly seems to be preparing for such an eventuality. Regularly unveiling newly developed military hardware or embarking on military exercises, Tehran seems to be actively preparing for war and who can blame them given the repeated veiled threats from Washington and Tel Aviv?

Iran launches major air combat drills

Press TV – September 7, 2011

The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) has commenced the first phase of massive 10-day aerial combat maneuvers in the country’s northwest.

The four-phased ‘offensive’ aerial drills began on Tuesday, during which Iranian fighter jets along with military transporters from eight different areas were dispatched to a northwestern military airbase in the city of Tabriz, said IRIAF Deputy Commander for Operations General Mohammad Alavi, quoted by IRIB on Tuesday.

The extensive aerial military exercises have been designed to simulate a real war zone for the pilots as opposed to previous aerial competitions, General Alavi noted.

The senior commander further pointed out that the IRIAF will display the country’s military prowess and home-made precision missiles in the drills.

Iranian military officials have described the exercises as unprecedented since they will ‘showcase hundreds of fighter sorties and tactical missions.’

General Alavi referred to the extensive trainings that Iranian pilots have received in Iran to conduct such large scale maneuvers and noted that night raid sorties and low-altitude flights are among the tactics to be applied during the drills.

He also said that the IRIAF squadrons will test-fire a wide range of new missiles and bombs during the latest exercises.

The Iranian commander underscored Iran’s defense doctrine and said the drills have a message of peace for the neighboring countries and serve to protect Iran’s integrity.

He expressed IRIAF’s complete readiness to thwart any aggression or surprise attack on the country.



Iran vows huge blow to any attacks

Press TV – September 7, 2011

A top Iranian Army commander has lauded the Islamic Republic’s huge ground defense achievements, saying Iran’s Armed Forces will deliver “the most severe response” to any likely threat posed by enemies.

Iran is equipped with the most advanced military hardware while our Armed Forces are fully prepared to defend the country’s border regions, said Iran’s Commander of the Ground Forces Brigadier-General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan on Wednesday.

He added that Iran has succeeded in developing great capabilities and making significant progress in the fields of electronic war and cyber defense, Mehr news agency reported.

“The Iranian Army’s Ground Forces are regularly detecting potential threats and have been preparing for (countering) them,” he stated.

The United States and Israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear work may consist of a covert military agenda.

Iran says its nuclear program is completely peaceful and within the framework of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, to which it is a signatory.

Pourdastan further said that the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are monitoring moves by the Party for Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK) terrorist group in northwestern Iran.

Currently, there is no problem in Iran’s land, sea and air borders, the senior Iranian commander pointed out.

He emphasized that PJAK terrorist group doesn’t rise to the level of being referred to as a threat and said Iran gives firm response to the cell’s desperate moves.

On Monday, the IRGC refused to accept a ceasefire offer by PJAK terrorists, urging them to immediately leave Iran’s border areas.

“We demand that PJAK terrorist group should first withdraw from Iran’s border regions. The announcement of a ceasefire has no meaning at the present,” an IRGC spokesman Colonel Hamid Ahmadi said.

In a Saturday statement, PJAK – an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) – called for a ceasefire with Tehran upon the request of some “mediation parties” on the ground and what it claimed was its belief in “peaceful solutions.”

PJAK members regularly engage in armed clashes with Iranian security forces along the country’s western borders with Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

Nearly 30 terrorists had been killed or injured in the recent IRGC operations.

Iran has recently deployed 5,000 military forces in the northwest of the country, along its common border with the Iraqi Kurdistan region, to fight terrorist groups.
