NCRI - In an interview, former CIA director James Woolsey stated, “The US should destroy virtually all of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps infrastructure as well as Iran’s nuclear facilities to reduce its terrorist and nuclear threats.”
Woolsey, who was CIA director from 1993 to 1995 during the Clinton administration added, “The next time the IRGC looks cross-eyed at us... we should turn loose six to 12 MOAB [GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast] bombs on their facilities.”
NCRI - The Iranian regime, described by many as the number one state sponsor of terrorism, has profited greatly from the Iran nuclear deal. The deal was put in place to curb the nuclear threat emanating from Iran, but many believe this is not the case. In fact, even President Donald Trump has said that it has the opposite effect – it gives Iran the tools to move towards a nuclear weapon.
As a result of the nuclear agreement, crippling economic sanctions were lifted and Iran has a lot more financial freedom. It got billions of dollars and proceeded to spend it on the destabilisation of its neighbours. It has had been able to enjoy increasing influence across the Middle East.
Need to Confront Iran’s Revolutionary Guards
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has been leading Iran’s hidden invasion of several Middle-Eastern countries for years. The US administration’s recent decision to put the IRGC on the terrorist list makes it vital to confront the regime and its proxies all over the region, writes Alejo Vidal-Quadras in ‘Euro Active’ on November 8, 2017 and the article continues as follows:
The Islamic Republic of Iran – the world’s number one state sponsor of terror – came into existence since the rise to power of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. Terrorism under the banner of Islam had existed long before but through scattered and isolated groups.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is prolonging the war in Yemen and undermining UN efforts to end the conflict through diplomacy, in order to pursue their objective of regional domination, according to comments from the White House on Wednesday.
The US has also accused the Iranian Regime of supplying the Houthi rebels in Yemen with advanced weaponry, including ballistic missiles that were used to attack Makkah and Riyadh this year.
NCRI - Nabil de Freij, a Lebanese politician and future parliamentary bloc MP, said earlier this week that the sovereignty of Lebanon is being violated with the interference of Iran in Lebanese political matters. He also said that Iranian regime has contributed to the decision by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign.
The Prime Minister had a number of reasons that led him to withdraw from the political settlements that had been reached previously between several different political parties in the country. De Freij said that another contributing factor was Iranian regime’s attempts to normalise Lebanon’s relations with Syria during a visit to the Syrian capital made by its allies recently.
NCRI - A Burkan-2H (Volcano) ballistic missile was launched toward Riyadh by Houthi forces in Yemen and intercepted by a U.S.-supplied Patriot defense system on November 4th. On the outskirts of King Khalid International Airport, wreckage from the missile fell on the northern edge of the Saudi capital, indicating that it overflew the densely populated city.
Previously on May 19, the Houthis fired a Burkan-2 variant at the city just hours before President Trump touched down for a visit. However, this latest strike follows the U.S.
NCRI - Following the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, defying the Iranian regime's interference in Lebanon and Arab countries and subsequent developments, the Iranian regime's media outlets described the developments as sensitive and accelerating and worrisome.
The state-run Kayhan newspaper affiliated to the regime’s leader, Ali Khamenei, wrote: “The suspicious resignation of Saad Hariri, the Ansarullah missile attack on the Riyadh International Airport and the eradication of the Saudi princes by Mohammed bin Salman, are three very important events that are linked, a bit more or less, both to Iran and to the accelerating and decisive developments in the region and the end of ISIS's rule. But how?”
