CIA director Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have each vowed to ‘destroy Iran’ resulting from ongoing ‘safety issues’ to the West.
Final month, Netanyahu vowed to forestall Iran from utilizing Syria “as a base from which to destroy Israel” – warning he would use the complete power of the army to guard Israeli pursuits.
Globalresearch.ca reviews: Following Israeli warplane terror-bombing of a Syrian army goal in a single day Friday, bare aggression by any normal, Netanyahu launched a disinformation assertion, roaring:
“Let me reiterate Israel’s coverage: We is not going to enable a regime hell-bent on the annihilation of the Jewish state to amass nuclear weapons.”
“We is not going to enable that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria, because it seeks to do, for the specific function of eradicating our state.”
Iran has no intention of “eradicating” Israel. Its nuclear program has no army part. It has no bases or giant army presence in Syria – small numbers of advisors and different personnel solely, working from Syrian bases, its assist in combating US-supported terrorism requested by Damascus.
Reviews of an Iranian base beneath building in southern Syria close to Israel’s borders had been fabricated. So are Israeli claims about Iran wanting a everlasting army presence within the nation to develop its regional affect.
America has a number of unlawful bases in northern Syria, no less than one close to the Syrian/Iraqi border within the southern a part of the nation – desiring to retain them as soon as battle ends, strongly opposed by Damascus and Moscow.
Lavrov earlier stated “after terrorism is defeated, step one must be the pullout of those that keep illegitimately in Syria” – his comment aimed toward Washington.
In keeping with Israeli Channel 10 tv, an unnamed Trump administration official stated “(w)e’ve made it clear to Israel that we’re not pulling out of Syria,” including:
“The ceasefire settlement is the primary stage. We’ll attempt to widen the buffer zone and push the Iranians again, 20 kilometers at first, and later maybe so far as Damascus.”
Iranian advisors and different personnel will seemingly keep in Syria so long as Assad requests their presence. US forces function illegally within the nation, a part of Washington’s regime change technique.
Individually, hardline CIA director Mike Pompeo warned Iranian Quds Power commander Common Qassem Soleimani by letter that Washington will maintain Tehran accountable for any assaults on US pursuits in Iraq – an unacceptable hostile menace.
Iran has no intention to assault some other nation – a US specialty, the Islamic Republic a staunch supporter of regional peace, free from nuclear weapons.
Pompeo lied saying he “despatched a be aware…as a result of (Soleimani) indicated that forces beneath his management may in actual fact threaten US pursuits in Iraq,” including:
“What we had been speaking to him…was that we’ll maintain (him) and Iran accountable…and we needed to be sure that he and the management of Iran understood that in a manner that was crystal clear.”
Soleimani refused to open the letter for good cause. Every thing US officers say about Iran is unacceptably hostile, false accusations repeatedly made.
In Late October, Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi visited Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani telling him on the time:
“The Islamic Republic of Iran, within the path of preventing terrorism, strengthening unity and solidarity in Iraq, and preserving the territorial integrity of the nation, has all the time been and will likely be alongside the Iraqi authorities and nation,” including:
Iran “is able to contribute to the reconstruction and improvement of Iraq and stand with its authorities and nation.”
Pompeo and different US hardliners contemplate mutual cooperation between Iran and Iraq and some other nations hostile to US pursuits.
Longstanding US hostility towards Iran persists, intensified beneath Trump, regime change America’s goal.
US-led aggression on the nation stays an ominous chance.
