US accuses Iran of terrorism…for fighting terrorism!



Press TV interviews Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

The US State Department has accused Iran of supporting international terrorist groups, claiming the country’s terrorist activities continue.

The department said in its annual report on Friday that Iran is supporting those militant groups fighting against the ISIL terrorist group in Iraq and Syria.

The report also said the Islamic Republic increased its military aid to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad and Shia fighters in Iraq last year.

Washington alleges Tehran of increasing its support for Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah and Palestinian resistance movements.

This is while the report makes almost no mention of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, which are widely believed to be the main supporters of terrorists in the Middle East. The US itself stands accused of financing and arming militants in the region.

In an interview with Press TV on Friday, American political commentator Dr. Kevin Barrett said that the United States is the primary sponsor of the ISIL terrorists.

“It seems that they’re using a very self-serving definition of terrorism here and elsewhere,” he said.

“It’s ironic though that Iran has been bashed primarily for fighting against the people that this very report says are the world’s biggest terrorist threat and that would be ISIL and Takfiri terrorists,” Dr. Barrett added.

He also noted that Iran “has been the biggest single force fighting against that particular brand of terrorism that this report says is getting out of control.”

  1. My government is accusing them of being terrorists for fighting the terrorists? This alone makes the idiotic statement by lil ol’ Georgie boy Bush, “you’re either with us or with the terrorists,” a profound existential statement. Typical of his buffoonery (that comment alone convinced me the 9-11 bombing was an inside job that only a Bush in our White House could allow.)
    Either the traitors of this nation is stealing elections, or we are the stupidest people on Planet Earth.
    If you are fighting a terrorist organization, and the government if this once great nation points the finger and calls you a terrorist, it proves, to me anyway, they are behind all this mayhem and chaos going on between nations. Why not stop terrorism since it has wreaked havoc on the entire world?
    Why not assist Iran instead of accusing them of being terrorists? How actually stupid is this Oblunder administration? Either with us or with the terrorists! Good grief Charley Brown. Folks, all this war mongering has got to stop. It is all a game played by the financiers financing both sides, as the government of the U.S. has financed ISIS/ISIL/ABYSS/LIL SIS, whatever these lunatic fringe idiots call themselves. If they are real at all!. If the economy is in such bad shape it relies on wars and conflict why were all the jobs sent overseas by the Clinton administration? America needs a better export than war games and hoaxes!

    • Luciferian satanists know how to get dominion over the entire world — use false flag attacks to start wars that they are ready to win ; otherwise they would risk eventual defeat from losing the advantage by procrastinating . The beneficiaries of the loot from the vanquished keep the ball rolling for more of the same . The appalling death and destruction are for them insignificant with regard to war gains and ultimately world rulership .

  2. Always blame your opposition of doing that which you yourself are doing but with obfuscation about the part that you’re doing bad things.

  3. Yes Mr. Barrett, as an American Iranian, I am deeply appalled by Us foreign policy, I must say the US is an oligarch, the state department run by noodle Nuland, the the senate intel committee run by Mc Laim and gang, one has to conclude, the US is an oligarch, America has lost its moral compass, the American Quilt has been obfusacated into an immoral stain beyond imagination, now, put your trust in G-d, for we are sheep without a shepard in this wicked world!
