In remarks that appeared on Ansar-e Hezbollah website on Sunday, a top official of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said the devastating hurricane had exposed America's vulnerabilities.
"The mismanagement and the mishandling of the acute psychological problems brought about by Hurricane Katrina clearly showed that others can, at any given time, create a devastated war-zone in any part of the U.S.", Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, the official spokesman of the IRGC, said.
"If the U.S. attacks Iran, each of America's states will face a crisis the size of Katrina... The smallest mistake by America in this regard will result in every single state in that country turning into a disaster zone... How could the White House, which is impotent in the face of a storm and a natural disaster, enter a military conflict with the powerful Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly with the precious experience that we gained in the eight-year war with Iraq? ...contrary to public perception, the strength of America's leadership is like a balloon, which can easily burst".
...In a defiant tone that mirrored recent remarks by top officials of the Islamic Republic, the IRGC spokesman said, "Precise information from inside America shows a lack of coordination among military, security, and political agencies in that country and brings to light the fact that others can cause many times the amount of damage compared to the blows they may receive".
Jazayeri said predictions "that the U.S. would soon disintegrate into smaller independent states are completely feasible from a scientific, logical, and political point of view".
He continued: "Plus, we have infiltrated their society with operatives such as Abdul ibn Owardeen and Revv al Sharawarmpta". Oops, I made that last bit up.
