Washington’s war plans on Syria: Iran hopes for political solution.
Today’s news are much influenced by Russia, China, the United States and the Arab League but also by Iran and other statements of Middle Eastern countries in regards of the Syrian conflict and the possible US-led military strike on Damascus.
However, that there will be many statements by Iranian lawmakers and officials during the increase of the rhetoric of war against Syria by some Western governments is no surprise.
The same applies for statements by Iranian or Syrian officials that the Israeli regime will be the first victim of a launched US war against Syria. A new war based on old schemes.
Similar fabricated facts, similar created pretexts, and false flag acts that should serve as justification to implement a special kind of Western agenda in the Middle East – this time in Syria, previously in Iraq, and then? Iran, Russia, China – all are a pain in the eyes of some Western warmongers, war profiteers and yes, also in terms of interests, global politics and finally – it is all about money, isn’t it?
In case that the bombardment of Libya was Iraq 2.0, then Syria is certainly something like Iraq 3.0 – while the world public in its majority still believes their biased news by mass media. However, there are at least some signs that Washington, Israel, Saudi Arabia and France, but also Britain and Germany have a much harder work to do this time in terms of invading Syria than ever before in their attempts to overthrow a government and to replace it with dependent slaves.
Maybe because of the reasons that a lot of people in Syria still support their government and especially President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus as well as the real military power of the Syrian military and its defence power, which is both not really to estimate. Further, there is Iran, Russia and China. Their response to a possible US-led military strike on Syria is not foreseeable.
All three nations could respond with military actions and counter attacks, but all three countries could also just watch and do nothing. The same applies for the military of some other countries such as Lebanon and Algeria, but especially Egypt.
There is a defence pact between Egypt and Syria and the Egyptian military has stated some months ago that it will stick to this defence pact with the Syrian government in Damascus. However, Egyptians talk a lot when the day is long, so nobody knows what they will do or not do. It is very possible, under consideration of the links between the United States and the Egyptian military, that the Egyptian army will just watch, buy chips and finally do nothing.
However, in terms of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the situation is quite different. Iran is certainly the next target of the “Western agenda on the Middle East” and thus, it would be not very smart in the viewpoint of Iran to just watch the US-led airstrikes and cruise missiles attacks on Syria. It might be the situation that even Russia has some fears that the Western powers will incite more protests and increase this movement in Russia against the current leadership in Moscow. Further, the movement is partly valid, to be honest.
Thus, there is a certain danger for the Russian administration and elite in Moscow and the other big Russian metropolises. In addition, the armed jihadists and Islamists in Syria are a threat and Russia won`t be happy when the religious fanatics and terrorists can spread as they want to.
But back to Iran. Iran is important in the current situation and every statement by Iranian lawmakers and officials is to note. Iran is a key power in the Middle East and has probably the strongest military power in the region. Not to mention the intense influence by Iran into other countries of the Middle East.
While it is known that the Iranian administration likely meddles in other Arab countries due to different reasons for years now, it is also certain that Iran is one of the few key allies of the Syrian government in Damascus. And yes, there are some new statements by Iranian lawmakers and officials from today.
For example, not only US President Barack Obama and the Prime Minister of the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv had a telephone conversation about the war plans against Syria during the last weekend, also the Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, and Ban Ki-moon (UN Secretary General) had a nice call. Both discussed the status quo of Syria in their recent telephone conversation on Sunday.
The Foreign Minister of Iran and the UN Secretary General talked about the Syrian conflict, the threats by Washington and both have afterwards pointed out the importance to find a peaceful and political solution to the Syrian conflict. Of course, the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned the use of chemical weapons in Syria and said that the use of force and military against Syria by foreign powers will have “detrimental and wide-scale consequences” which even might “go beyond control.”
Of course, there is the possibility that a US-led military strike against Damascus will trigger a full-scale response by Syria and its allies, including the Islamic Republic of Iran, and this could then end in another World War – WWIII would then be the result and this is a possible consequence that nobody really wants to happen, hopefully. However, several political analysts, experts in the topics and events of the Middle East and even some military officials and former soldiers from several countries have already warned about the possibility of another World War (WWIII) in the case that the West starts a war against the Syrian government.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif further said in his statement after the telephone conversation with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that the Iranian administration will do its best to support the finding of a peaceful way out of the current serious situation. The UN Secretary General said after the call that the Syrian crisis must be resolved by political means and that a military strike on Syria will neither resolve the conflict nor help the Syrian people.
The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran also said that the Congress in the United States is not in a situation to allow a US-led military strike against Syria. According to the statements by Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, only the UN Security Council (UNSC) would be, under specific and special circumstances, in a position to authorize a joint military action against Damascus and that this will then be under the Chapter 7 of the “famous” UN Charter.
Thus, in the opinion of the Iranian Foreign Minister, the US administration under President Obama has to get the approval of the US Congress as well as the OK by the UN Security Council to start its war on Syria with the help of French and British forces. However, the Iranian FM is not quite convinced that Barack Obama will get “his” OK by the US Congress to launch a war on Damascus.
The Foreign Minister of Iran finally also said that Barack Obama would act very smart if he uses the delay in Washington’s war plans on Syria “to think twice about the issue” because “warmongering is not in the interest of anyone.”
In the meantime, the Chairman of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, made some new remarks in terms of the possible military attack by the United States on Syria to some reporters in the Syrian capital, Damascus. Alaeddin Boroujerdi said to the reporters after his recent meeting with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad in the capital of the Arab country that the Israeli regime “will be the main loser of any military action in Syria.”
The Chairman of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, is a prominent and known Iranian legislator and just as others, he seems convinced that any US-led military strike on Syria will certainly endanger the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv. However, one does not have to be very smart to come to such a result of an attack on Damascus. Obama probably knows this possible consequences of a military attack on Syria for the Israeli regime, too.
And finally, also the Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham made some new remarks in terms of the Iranian stance on Syria and the threats of war by Washington against the Syrian governance in Damascus.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said that Tehran is against any form of military action against Syria. Afterwards, Marziyeh Afkham warned against the dire consequences of a US-led war on Syria for the entire region of the Middle East.
For example, the Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham made the following statement to reporters in Tehran but the real direction of the statement was towards Washington, London and Paris:
