TEHRAN (Iran News) –Since May 5, 1979 when Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) was established, it has turned into one of the strongest pillars of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and for this reason, hostilities against this mastermind of many achievements of the country is on the rise and it is under attacks and accusations of enemies.

When the eight-year Iraqi imposed war ended and the IRGC played a great role in defending the country against occupation and invasion during the war, the IRGC decided to be a constrictive tool for the country beside its main task of defending the country against any threat from enemies.

In different states and under different commanders, the IRGC tried to strengthen the country’s military power as a deterrent tool against enemies and at the same time it was involved in construction and developmental activities in the country by setting up several bodies which were in charge of development of the country.

Khatam-ul Anbiya Construction Headquarters is one of the arms of the IRGC which has been in charge of development of the country by involving many developmental projects. Despite many efforts and achievements of the IRGC in the developmental projects, its achievements in this field has gone almost unnoticed but its military achievements have been under the spotlight which have even forced the enemies especially Israel and the West to confess the progresses.

IRGC has had considerable achievements especially in drone and missile technology in a way that it has astonished the world and now the Islamic Republic has turned into a drone and missile power in the world and it can export its military products to any country.

Because of these achievements, attacks and accusations against the IRGC have been intensified by the West and enemies, and first the U.S. designated the IRGC as a terrorist group and now other Western countries think of following the path of the U.S. under the pressure of Israel.

But the IRGC with giving no damn to the bullies and accusations continues its mission which is to defend the Islamic Revolution and support the oppressed people in the world especially the Muslims, and the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has repeatedly emphasized that the Islamic Revolution and its IRGC will defend Muslims and Palestinians and will give due response to anyone who tries to take action against the Islamic Revolution of Iran.

On Thursday, the chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said military experts at his force are now developing and manufacturing supersonic cruise missiles, adding that the specialists are also capable of intercepting and tracking satellites with radars on the ground.

“Since a cruise missile flies the major portion of its flight path on a low-altitude trajectory, it is no different from a fixed-wing aircraft which cannot travel at a high velocity. We are, therefore, developing cruise missiles capable of travelling at supersonic speeds. The process throughout which a supersonic ballistic missile is guided to strike a moving target in the sea is a fairly complicated one, the likes of which have never been seen before,” General Hossein Salami said at a ceremony marking Pasdar Day (IRGC Serviceman Day) in Tehran.

“Today, we can intercept satellites with the help of radars positioned on the ground. Such great advances have been made by the Iranian youth. Young Iranian military forces can now hit any moving ship from a distance of thousands of kilometers away, and can even define the exact point of strike, so that the crew of the target ship would remain unharmed,” he added.

The IRGC chief said the Americans are aggressively seeking to win the hearts and minds of the Iranian nation, and cherish it as a strategic dream.

He pointed to the expansion of Iran’s domain of action, saying the Islamic Republic is now present on the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea and has “decomposed the enemy”.

“The Islamic Revolution has kicked the enemy out of its strategic shelter and forced it into operational expansion,” Salami stated, adding that the enemy suffers a lack of initiative.

He said the only way to deal with the arrogant powers is by means of the “language of force”, because the enemy is unfamiliar with the power of logic, while it accepts the logic of power.

Then the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy of Iran recounted the numerous feats that have been achieved by the force in line with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei’s call on it to expand its maritime presence.

The Navy embarked on equipping itself with oceangoing vessels “following the Leader’s call on the IRGC to establish a presence in distant and oceanic waters,” Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri told a televised interview on Thursday.

“We now possess three oceangoing vessels, named Shahid (Martyr) Roudaki, Shahid Mahdavi, and Shahid Bahman Baqeri,” the commander added.

He described the Shahid Mahdavi vessel as a “mobile naval base” equipped with four 350-kilometer (217-mile)-range missiles. The vessel can also be outfitted with 750-kilometer (466-mile)-range missiles, and can carry three helicopters, the commander added.

The Shahid Bahman Baqeri vessel enjoys a 180-meter-long landing strip that can be used by unmanned aerial vehicles, he noted, saying the vessel can carry as many as 30 Ashura-class speedboats.

According to the official, the boats and the country’s Tareq-class speedboats are “soon” to be outfitted with respectively 12-kilometer (7-mile)-range and 180-kilometer (111-mile)-range missiles.

These are just small parts of achievements of the IRGC which have been revealed as it has many more achievements which have been kept secret and will be unveiled in its due time.

So we see the West is right to get angry at the IRGC’s many achievements and above all at the IRGC’s strong determination in defending the Islamic Revolution against the threats and bullies. Therefore, Iranian people owe a great deal to the IRGC the current peace and security in the country because as long as the IRGC exists and acts strongly, no one can look daggers at Iran and we can tell enemies to get angry and to die in anger because we will never retreat an inch from supporting the IRGC despite all false accusations and painting negative picture of it.
