Former Secretary of Defense stating that the war is a game of chess that anyone who can manage the second move faster and better than opponent will win and he said "Therefore at that time a part of Khorramshahr was occupied by the enemy, but after 175 days thanks to God according to the zeal of Iranian fighters, the bloody city was freed from the Baathist enemy occupation.

Shamkhani reiterated: But before the revolution in order to fight Against Shah’s regime, some Arabs entered into an equation with Saddam, but when the revolution won, these groups became two divisions, some of them joined the revolution that we wanted the same thing and indeed they wanted to fight with Shah’s regime and we got Arabic Tribes and the other group was the one that were the hired men of the Baathist regime and had nothing to do with the Arab tribes , but also they would be suppressed even by the same tribes.

He said those who were martyred in Khorramshahr were Arabs so that Saddam Hussein did not imagine that these people would stand against him and before the Islamic Revolution some people were linked with Saddam that they continued fighting with the Islamic Republic.

The chief for the Center of Strategic Studies of Armed Forces added: “Because of the bad performance of Mr Madani during the time that he was the governor who was more worse than Bani Sadr, since he wanted to change this issue to a national issue and to make a national hero of himself, the people took advantage of the opportunities created in this field.”?

He added: "Mr Madani at the time did a lot of promotional work on this issue but the reality was that they did not have the necessary capacity, they would not be supported by the people as well and in forms of groups and teams would generally serve the Iraqi Baath military intelligence.”?
