Iranian general: Conflict with US would spiral out of control
An Iranian general reportedly warned on Sunday that military conflict with the U.S. would quickly spin out of control.
Maj. Gen. Gholamali Rashid said that conflict between the countries would have consequences across the Middle East and would put U.S. forces in danger, The Associated Press reported, citing the semi-official Fars news agency.
Rashid, who is in charge of military operations in Iran’s armed forces, reportedly made the remarks to the country’s Revolutionary Guards Corps.
