The IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said "The IRGC’s maritime strategy in showing its practical infield power which indicated the high vulnerability of their warships and equipments, made US military officials think of changing their maritime approach. But these changes will not guarantee their safety.”
"Our inhibitive power has reached a level to make the enemy forget about military attacks,” he asserted.
"This level of inhibition is the most desirable for all countries, but it is a mere unattainable dream for many of them,” Fadavi maintained.
The IRGC Navy Commander pointed to the US Defense Minister on strategic US maritime changes and said "They are after strengthening their influence and presence throughout the world, which they follow mainly via maritime strategies; their fulcrum point being big warships with concentrated volumes and heavy ranges of equipments on board them.”
