Iran: US Presence in Syria to Fuel Mideast Instability

Israel Lobby supports US-led war on Syria.

While the Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Bashar al-Jaafari, has called the U.S. President Barack Obama a “bully” because of the intense warmongering policies of the American leader, it seems clear that the so-called Israel Lobby (e.g. AIPAC) in the United States support a US-led war on Syria. In addition, new statements from Iran say that any presence of the American military on Syrian soil would lead to a future instability of the Middle Eastern region.


The statement was made by no lower-ranking Iranian official, but by Iran’s Defence Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan. However, although there were a lot of remarks recently by Iranian ministers and officials as well as army personnel from the Islamic Republic of Iran, it is not yet clear what to expect by Iran in case the US military accepts the order of Barack Obama to launch the airstrikes and war against Syria.

While some have stated that the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv will be the first victims of any military strike by Washington against Damascus and under consideration of the general stance by the Iranian administration in recent years, this seems certainly possible that Israel will be deleted from the world map in case the United States will attack Damascus, there is still a possibility that Iran will just do nothing.

As mentioned, in case that a US-led military attack on Syria will be carried out, everything is possible and the word “everything” really includes all options, responses and results in this regard. Further, several results are simply not foreseeable. Nobody knows whether Russia, China, Iran or even others will or will not respond militarily in case the United States launch the war on Syria.

At least, the new remark by Iran’s Defence Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan about any kind of US military presence in Syria and that such an American presence on Syrian soil would lead to future instability in the region of the Middle East can be regarded as another indicator. There is a possibility that the Iranian administration does simply not like the idea of another US military base next door and the presence of US soldiers on Syrian soil. Of course, this would be understandable.

In addition, under consideration of the many reports about the agenda of a “Greater Middle East”, “New Middle East”, “Middle East 2.0” (although it`s perhaps already 3.0 then..), and the alleged plans by several Western countries and the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv for the future of the region, it might be the situation in terms of Iran that the Iranian administration is fully aware of the possible fact that after Syria is done, they are the next target of the American-Israeli agenda. There is even a possibility that the same afterwards applies for Russia and then for China.

It is probably better for Iran and also Russia to prevent such a situation by supporting Syria and this leads to the situation that both, the Iranian as well as the Russian administration, could respond militarily to a possible US-led attack on Damascus. In addition, it is certainly better to make war on a foreign soil than within the own borders.

Not to mention that such a support would then simply mean the prevention of being the next target of fabricated evidence, alleged revolutions and staged videos, which then just should justify the upcoming Western policy towards Iran and Russia and an possible increase of a threating rhetoric against both nations. The methods remain the same, the targets just change.

And in terms of the Israel Lobby in the United States? It comes as no surprise that the pro-Israel groups in America support a war on Syria. However, the backers and members of the so-called Israel Lobby in the United States have not always done what is the best for Tel Aviv. They have often supported things that were finally counterproductive for the interests of Israel. Not to mention the interests of the United States. The Israel Lobby in America is a threat for the success of the American foreign policy and the occupied territory by Israel has no benefits for the United States or the American people.

In addition, the often claimed importance of Israel for the American interests in the Middle East or on any importance of the protection of the United States are nothing more than empty phrases to justify the financially support for the Israeli regime. The US senators claim such things to stay in their office or to still be able to maintain a successful career. If they act against the interests of the Israel Lobby (e.g. AIPAC) in the United States, they become very quickly a kind of history on the political platform in the country.

The US Congress received several threats by three influential pro-Israel groups in the United States. Threats in terms of the known pressure by these pro-Israel groups, when they want that a specific decision will be taken by the US Congress or the President of the United States. That is simply the way they do it – since many years, and they have the power and influence to do so.

For example, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), all three are dangerous groups and represent a bad influence for the American foreign policy, issued statements that they support US military intervention in Syria. As stated, this comes as no surprise.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) had a meeting at the White House on Tuesday together with several officials from the U.S. administration, according to reports by the often very biased Reuters agency. So, I didn’t think that up myself.

Of course, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) want the focus of the debate about the war on Syria on the national security of the United States and the huge threats of the Syrian regime for the American people (shall I laugh?) rather than a debate that focus on the support for Israel with an attack on Syria. The usual pattern.

It remains to be seen whether the Israel Lobby will again have success or not. Has Obama balls or is he really just a bully without goolies? We will see.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has denounced the increasing extremism in the Middle East and warned in a new statement that any military attack against Syria would have “unexpected consequences.”
