Iranian Parliament Speaker: Attack on Syria means dire consequences for the region.

There are again new statements out of the Islamic Republic of Iran in terms of Syria and the increased rhetoric of war by Washington and France about a potential military strike on Damascus.

However, although the British Parliament has voted against the participation in a military strike on Syria, it is probably still better to include the UK administration in the “coalition of willing” for a military intervention into Syria.

The new remarks from Iran were made by the Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and the former Iranian President, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. For example, the Expediency Council Chairman of Iran, Mr Rafsanjani, said in his new statements in terms of Syria and the potential airstrike by Washington against the Arab nation that the “arrogant powers are fuelling the Syrian crisis” and voiced his concern over the status quo in the Arab state.

The former Iranian President, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, further said that the Syrian nation is the only victim of the current events and that the people of Syria are the subject to chemical attacks by the terrorist groups. Rafsajani also pointed out that the Syrian people have witnessed how their beloved relatives, loved ones, and friends became the victims of the foreign-led terrorism in the Arab nation.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Parliament Speaker, Ali Larijani, has again warned about the serious and dire consequences for the entire Middle East in case the West is really launching a military intervention into Syria. Ali Larijani further stated that Washington is already working on an attack against Damascus since some time and that the war on Damascus is based “on a pre-planned scenario” by several foreign powers.

For example, the Iranian Parliament Speaker, Ali Larijani, stated in his new remarks that the U.S. administration in Washington have been preparing themselves “to act against Syria” already for months.

The Iranian official also said that even the UN Special Envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, has already confirmed that the administration of the United States have been preparing their military forces at least since four months to act against the Syrian government, while the majority of the European governments were opposed to the idea of launching a war against Syria.

The Iranian Parliament Speaker, Mr Ali Larijani, said to reporters in Iran:

“It has been for months that the Americans have been preparing themselves to act against Syria.”

Afterwards, he stated that the UN Special Envoy on Syria, Mr Brahimi, has also confirmed this and knows that Washington has been preparing its military to act against Syria for at least the recent four months.

Recently, already another senior Iranian lawmaker, Mohammad Hassan Asafari, spoke about the accusations by Washington against the Syrian government that it has used chemical weapons in attacks against Syrian civilians and the scheme of the plot against Syria.

Mohammad Hassan Asafari, a member of the Iranian National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said in his recent remarks that Washington attempts to exercise the “same scenario in Syria” that it has “implemented 10 years ago in Iraq, where they could not find even one kilogram of chemicals.”

In terms of the history of the baseless US-led war against Iraq in 2003, the statement by the Iranian lawmaker is certainly true. US-led forces invaded Iraq 10 years ago on a very similar justification that the former dictator of Iraq, Saddam Huseein, would have had so many WMDs (weapons of mass destructions) that they have to carry out this war because Saddam was the pure evil.

However, the WMDs were not there and nobody ever found all the weapons of mass destructions in Iraq. They are probably in the living room of Tony Blair.
