The deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards on Wednesday said that while the United States “speaks loftily about security and global development, it remains our worst, most vicious enemy.”

The remarks were made by Brigadier General Hossein Salami during a defense conference at a Tehran university.

Salami accused the West of using innovative means to disseminate “inappropriate films” whose goal is to “destroy the world’s moral fabric, which will in turn lead to a collapse of global security.”

The deputy commander went on to accuse the West of bolstering their military arsenals all the while combining their might with “diplomatic barbarism.”

“They are moving further away from the values of God, which will ultimately lead to their demise,” Salami said.
