    Generals typically do not have the authority to start wars.  Before (and after) an actual war is declared and started, they follow the orders of their senior leaders in a chain of command.

    The comments you quoted by Khamenei sound like a bunch of sabre rattling to me.  He has unrest with his own people, 70% of whom think that the United States must be okay because Khamenei and the other members of the Iranian government oppose the USA.  The Iranians dislike their own government so much that they believe the governments hatred toward the USA is stupid and unfounded.  However, if the United States invades Iran, all bets are off.  The Iranian People will fight to get us the hell out of their country as any proud nation would.
