    Lightbulb full-throated

    Hello everyone

    Can whole-hearted be a good synonym for full-throated in this context?

    Jafari has said that US military bases in the region would be open to attack if his forces were designated a terrorist group. Zarif’s ministry has said that Tehran’s reaction would be “firm, decisive and crushing”. Even the country’s moderate president, Hassan Rouhani, who five months ago made a rare public criticism of the IRGC during his run for a second term, issued his full-throated support for the force, saying that it “has a place in people’s heart”.

    So do I- full-throated normally refers to the way people speak.
