Statement: Iran's Military Power

The view from the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency.(DIA)
The strategic objectives of Iran’s leadership are first and foremost, regime survival; making Iran the preeminent regional power; attaining a leading role in the Islamic world and on the international stage; and turning Iran into an economic, scientific, and technological powerhouse.
Iranian leadership pursues a security strategy intended to deter an attack on its territory and increase its relative power in the region. While it is unlikely to initiate a conflict intentionally or launch a pre-emptive attack, Iran uses its military forces to defend against both external and internal threats.
