Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi speaking in a meeting in Tehran on Monday said the poll was carried out by the Intelligence Ministry countrywide.
"According to the poll, 84 percent of the Iranian nation said ‘we are confident that the country’s military forces make a firm response to enemies of the country and the (Islamic) Revolution’,” he added.
Iran’s military officials say any threat to the country will be doomed to failure since the Armed Forces are fully prepared to defend the country and their missiles are capable enough to rain down on any target at any distance.
In November 2014, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei emphasized the necessity for incessant progress of the Iranian Armed Forces irrespective of the political developments.
"Our Armed Forces should increase their preparedness constantly regardless of the political calculations, and should do the strategic planning by identifying their own shortcomings and also by studying the enemy’s possibilities and weaknesses,” Imam Khamenei had announced.
