The head of Iran’s Basij paramilitary force says his country has no choice but to destroy America in order to build an ideal society.

In a video broadcast to Basij members on Feb. 26, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi said the Islamic regime’s “independence and unhindered advance toward perfection is subject to removing the despotic powers and the Zionists,” referring to America and Israel.

“In every field in which the Islamic Republic of Iran tries to advance,” Naqdi said, “America is there to create obstacles for us. … When we want progress in science, they enforce sanctions and kill our scientists.”

The Basij force is a militia unit, established in 1979 by revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini, best known as a security force responsible for reacting to protests and other assemblies of dissident groups. It is a subset of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
