Americans Will Suffer Casualties in Persian Gulf
In recent weeks, Persian Gulf has experienced very perilous days because of the U.S. forces, deployed on the warships and frigates in the region.

Reacting to the U.S. forces, and President Donald Trump’s bluff-like remarks who said he had ordered the American military to shoot and destroy any Iranian vessels that harass U.S. navy ships, the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran in a statement described the presence of the U.S. military in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman as a breach of security in the region, stressing that the formation of void U.S.-led coalitions under the pretext of maintaining ship security is not only not helping, but also a dangerous move that disrupts peace and security of the region at the same time.
The statement said the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman, as important international waterways and major economic hubs, have always been safe paths for the movement of oil and merchant ships, and they have enjoyed the necessary security all through the past years. In this regard, the Islamic Republic of Iran, in cooperation with the countries of the region, has tried to maintain stability and calm at an acceptable level.
All neighboring countries in the Persian Gulf are fully aware that disruptive and provocative military operations, combat exercises, shooting, territorial aggression, unnecessary inspections of ships and vessels, imposing psychological insecurity on fishermen and traders, preparing grounds for freedom of action for smugglers, polluting the marine environment and endangering marine aquatic life by the use of nuclear propulsion is only part of the risky and unconventional measures of the U.S. Navy in the region are against the customary international law.
It also said Iran has sounded necessary warnings to the U.S. to put an end to its provocative moves and adventurism which their presence in the region obstructs peace and stability and spreads tension and insecurity. It warned them that any provocative act and conflict in the current condition is considered against the international rules and regulations.
This adventurism and tension in the region by the U.S. comes at the time Americans have repeatedly experienced Iran’s defensive capabilities and its didactical responses.
One unlikely finds any adventurism by the U.S. forces in the region which has not faced a final crushing blow. 2877 days of the Sacred Defense ended in grandeur and victory of Islam and Iran in the region. The fiasco of downing Iranian passenger plane over the Persian Gulf unmasked the U.S. in the region as bloodthirsty even assassination of martyr Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and his comrades portrayed a disgraceful and hateful face of the U.S. in the region so that even American Democrat Senator Chris Murphy on January 3 and after the assassination of Martyr Soleimani said that Soleimani’s martyrdom could be more dangerous to the U.S.
Now we should ask us this question whether Martyr Soleimani’s being alive has been more dangerous or his martyrdom. On Iran’s new launch of satellite into orbit, Murphy says “The launch of military satellite is a proof that Trump’s Iran policy just strengthens Iran and causes them to act more aggressively. In virtually every way, Iran is stronger today in the Middle East [West Asia], and America is weaker than 4 years ago.”
Although the U.S. whose troops on the warships are currently infected with the Coronavirus, it does not stop its wickedness and creates tension in the Persian Gulf.
It seems that as most media outlets in the world have predicted and revealed both explicitly or implicitly that the U.S. would suffer casualties in the region, they have not said much nonsense. There is a proverb in Arabic language which says “Whoever tried the tried would repent having tried.”
