If Iran said the sun would be out at noon, I’d carry a flashlight.
I hope he is right, but it sounds like Baghdad Bob to me.
Once the civilized world destroys ISIS — then it will be time to destroy Iran.
Read down in the article, even if IS fails, Iran is waiting in the with wings. And you will see the impression Tehran has of the US now, none of this ends well.
Maybe that's who he got his talking points from. There seem to be few coincidences here.

Not exactly something to get excited about.
Yeah.....OK. Aside from cronyism and domestic intimidation, what have they ever done to get that reputation?
Hey! They worked hard at being the best in the region at killing unarmed civilians!

“The arrogants and Zionists have admitted, more than before, to their own weakness and to the Islamic republic’s power, following their successive defeats,” he said.
Iranian officials often use the term “arrogants” to refer to the United States and other Western powers, while Zionists is used in Tehran to refer to Israel without acknowledging its existence as a state.
They just took over Yemen and control territory all over the place, including in Libya... not exactly a small isolated movement.
