"If the US seriously threatens Iran and takes an action against Iran, none of the US soldiers in the region will return to America alive."
He was speaking after Obama's new nuclear plan that included Iran along with North Korea as countries that could warrant US nuclear strikes in the event of a war.
Firouzabadi also stated that US economic problems would skyrocket as a result of an attack:
"If the US seriously threatens Iran and takes an action against Iran, the threats against it will become a thousand times more, its economic problems will increase and it will lose more markets."
If the rise of the price of a barrel of oil to a record $100 a barrel following the standoff between the IRGC speedboats and US Navy destroyers on the Strait of Hormuz in January 2008 is something to go on, such actions by Iran would indeed be fatal to the US economy and the worlds oil market.
