Supreme Leader Lauds IRGC's Firm Resistance against Enemy Plots

"A fair assessment of the IRGC's performance since the beginning of the Revolution's victory shows that it has truly and honestly taken strides and shown resistance in following the footsteps of Imam Hosseini (AS) (Shiite Muslims third Imam)," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of IRGC commanders and personnel on the occasion of the 'Islamic Revolution Guards Day' on Monday.

He pointed to the IRGC's growing trend of progress, and said to promote its potentials, the IRGC should continue reinvigorating its capabilities and promoting its qualities and vigilance.

"The new and young generation of the IRGC should be growingly higher and stronger (than the older generation) in knowledge, informedness, insight, dedication, correct and prompt accomplishment of tasks and duties, because although there is no military war happening today, a more delicate and of course more dangerous war is underway," Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The IRGC which was created over 30 years ago has now turned into a well-equipped and well-trained force.

IRGC's power and unique capabilities are not only admired by friends, but also acknowledged by foes.

In a Sep. 11, 2008 report, the Washington Institute for the Near East Policy also said that in the two decades since the Iran-Iraq War, the Islamic Republic has excelled in naval capabilities and is able to wage unique asymmetric warfare against larger naval forces.

According to the report, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Navy (IRGCN) has been transformed into a highly motivated, well-equipped, and well-financed force and is effectively in control of the world's oil lifeline, the Strait of Hormuz.

The study says that if Washington takes military action against the Islamic Republic, the scale of Iran's response would likely be proportional to the scale of the damage inflicted on Iranian assets.
