Iran’s IRGC to treat US troops like Daesh if blacklisted

NATO has abused its mandate in the Syrian War

[ Editor’s Note: The gamesmanship continues with the Trump regime’s deploying its new boogeyman routine on Iran to justify more forward military deployment. But in actuality that has already happened.

The US has a major base under construction in Israel, one that has gotten light coverage. It has had major bases in Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and now in Jordan – a capacity expanded all during the Syrian war. And it has been selling these countries huge amounts of modern weapons that can be used against Iran.

US support for proxy terrorism is the most open secret in the history of clandestine warfare, yet when corporate media report on the stories, we find that a key component, the US-NATO use of proxy terrorism to promote desired regime change, is flagrantly absent.

If anyone is aware of any major media talent resigning from their corporate media slot in protest over this fraud against the American people and the world, please clue me in. The failure of our so-called free media to ride herd on the US’ aggression being sold as a reactive defensive strategy should be condemned in all public forums, and wherever they feel they can wear the defenders-for-freedom robe.

Iran will do what the US would do if Iran were moving first-strike weapons within range of US cities and bases – Iran will quickly build up both its defensive posture against a first strike and a powerful retaliatory one as it possibly can, despite not having a nuclear…one for now.

Under international law, every country is entitled to defend itself from superior military threats, including nuclear ones. Israel has been allowed to have nukes with no sanctions imposed; and both Pakistan and India can be added to the list of countries that have chosen to not comply with IAEA nuclear inspections. Yet Iran, who DOES comply, is now a threat to US power, when the US dwarfs everyone else in the region? Are you kidding me?

We will now be watching how much of the vast fortune that the American people spent on education was wasted, when it comes to having the control needed over our own government to prevent special interests from manipulating it. So far, our record on standing up to these manufactured wars is a poor one, so why should Deep Staters stop, when they view us as already on our knees? Jim W. Dean ]

General Jafari

–  First published   …  October 08,  2017 

The chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says Iran will treat US troops like Daesh terrorists who will have to move their military bases farther from Iran’s borders if Washington blacklists his force.

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari’s warning on Sunday came after reports that US President Donald Trump is expected to announce new measures against Iran, including the prospect of additional targeted sanctions and the designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organization.

“As we have announced in the past, if America’s new law for sanctions is enforced, this country will have to move its regional bases outside the 2,000 km radius of the Iranian missiles’ range,” the ISNA news agency quoted him as saying.

By the new law, Gen. Jafari was referring to the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) that Trump signed into law on August 2 after it passed a Senate vote.

Jafari said Iran “deems the implementation of CAATSA equal to America’s unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA,” which will allow the country to exponentially enhance its missile capabilities.

The JCPOA stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – the nuclear accord which Tehran reached with the US and other countries in 2015 to limit its nuclear program in exchange for lifting of sanctions.

Trump is expected to announce soon that he will “decertify” the deal in a step that potentially could cause the accord to unravel.

“We will use the opportunity of the stupid behavior of the Trump government to achieve a leap in defense, missile and regional programs,” Gen. Jafari said.

A senior US administration official, cited by the Financial Times, said on Friday that Trump would not seek the reimposition of broad sanctions that would risk collapsing the accord but was expected to announce new measures.

Those measures will include additional targeted sanctions, the blacklisting of the IRGC and the adoption of a tougher stance on what Washington calls Iranian proxies in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, the official was quoted as saying.

Jafari said, “If the scattered news about the stupidity of the US government regarding the IRGC as a terrorist group is correct, the Guards will also consider the American military all over the world, especially the Middle East, as equal to Daesh.”

Senior US officials have been cited as saying that the Trump administration intended to employ a strategy that would “address the totality of Iran’s malign behavior” in the region, meaning Iran’s support for the Syrian and Iraqi governments and resistance groups opposed to the US and its allies pushing for influence in the Middle East.

Jafari said, “If the ultimate goal of the Americans in raising such issues is to negotiate with Iran about the region, they have chosen a completely wrong path.”

New US sanctions, he said, will eliminate the chance of any engagement forever.

“These sanctions will cap the JCPOA experience for us, and the experience is that dialog for America is a tool for pressure and hostility rather than interaction or problem-solving,” Jafari added.

  1. It is all too plain to see: Trump is an israeli stooge. In short, they have him by the testicles. Trump will do and say whatever the zionist crowd in Washington tell him. Trump is a disgrace to America. He is a joke. He is also a dangerous narcissist and worse, filled with such self importance and the belief he can do no wrong. He is self deluded.
    America has no business having any bases in the middle east let alone one in israel, the worst place to put a base. Unfortunately, the power of the israeli lobby and its neo-con think tanks have once again won the day and the American people are once again forced to pay for this. Another reason why Americans should prevent their children from enlisting in the military.
    Trump the latest in puppets for israel understands nothing. He has no grasp on international affairs, let alone the ramifications of America’s actions especially in the middle east. Trump is the perfect president for israel.
    Iran has every right to defend itself as all other nations also have that right.
    America has no right to invade small weak nations, just to throw them up against the wall and show who’s boss.
    The people of the middle east have every reason to loath , distrust and despise America and israel. The people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and the Palestinians know who their enemy is. The same enemy of the American people: Israel and Washington.

    • You didn’t mention Ukraine in those countries list . Lots of Ukr. people ( some uneducated , some ignorant, others deceived ) do not know who their enemy is. Yet .

  2. In reality, Israel is very vulnerable, despite its hubris.

    Iran can help the three million Palestinians in Jordan to create a resistance force similar to Hezbollah. If Israel pushes out the two million Palestinians in the West Bank and the close to two million in Gaza, then that just adds to the volunteer pool in Jordan.

    Why Jordan? A third of the population are displaced Palestinians. If Israel cleanses the West Bank, over half will be Palestinians. This will cause the better-off Jordanians (not the Palestinians) to leave. This will make Jordan a Palestinan country. The King will be in London or perhaps in Suffolk, where his mother hailed from.

    The IDF has some highly professional soldiers, however the little advertised fact is that it is mostly made up of conscripts — nice Jewish boys (and girls!) doing their service before heading off to university. They have more to live for than to die for. The girls and homosexuals and intellectuals and Secular Jews and Haredim (who will also be conscripted in the event of a war) will not shoot to kill — each for their own reasons. Those who can will desert. Israel has a huge problem with conscripts not completing their service.

    • Israel’s geography is not its friend. It is hundreds of miles long and very narrow — it is only a few miles wide at its most populous point, which happens to be overlooked by hills. It is bound on one side by the sea, so retreat will mean taking boats to Lampedusa. While the professional soldiers respond to hotspots like Golan and South Lebanon, the long border with Jordan is left mostly to conscripts.

      If this border comes under nightly sniper attack from the Jordanian side, along its entire length, the kids guarding it will desert their posts. This will open up the border to attacks on the far-flung settlements that were peppered all over the West Bank to take territory. The settlers will withdraw to the safety of the wall or take a year in London or New York “till it all settles down”, which of course it won’t

      In reality, they are a tiny country and unable to survive a proper Middle Eastern war. They can’t lose a couple of million people, because they have only a few million population (most of which hold two passports and can easily leave). They can’t lose a couple of cities, because they only have Tel Aviv-Haifa. They can’t lose a few tens of thousands of square km to DU or TNT or other contaminants, because they only have 20,000 square km. so they can win a six day war against “countries” that were themselves merely tribal holdings under the control of the US, but they can’t win a six year war on their own streets, with all the Middle Eastern trimmings — the looting, the taking of slaves, the Gas, the Cholera, IEDs, suicide bombers, the multiple proxy militias each working for the highest bidder, and etc.

      Perhaps it’s biggest weakness if the Jewish religion, which does not offer an afterlife. There is no martyrdom culture — the last martyrs they had were at Massada, allegedly.

      Hence the invitation to the Anericans to set up camps and in the event of war to supply the lacking manpower.

      But as the UK can confirm, a surrender to the US comes at a price. All Israeli assets all over the World will have to be handed over. And the Americans will defend them in the only way they know how — by bombing them. They will have to destroy the settlements and towns in order to free them.

    • But they have nuclear weapons and will use them. Against whom? Militiamen fighting on their own streets? Or perhaps they will drop a few on Iran and thus force Russia and China to supply Iran with this technology via North Korea.

      Their option is also NA — avoiding a war and simply allowing the Palestinians to multiply by the millions while distracting attention with wars in the Muslim countries. The Arabs are unable to feed themselves now and will migrate to Europe in their millions. Within a generation or two they will be a sizeable voting bloc in whatever replaces the EU. Add to that the difficulty of living in splendour among a native race living in squalor, and defending it as something other than Apartheid.

      In reality they are screwed — with or without American bases. They just don’t realise it yet.

  3. Master Blaster has total state dominance over the US. Imagine, a US base to protect Israhell. Yes, so Israhell can pull a new USS Liberty to blame Iran and Trump knows it. Just like the first stooge Johnson did.

  4. A U.S. base in Israhell . . . hmmmmmm . . . when has that ever happened in history before? Not like the Romans were ever there in the protection racket called the Holy Roman Empire. LMGAO (laughing my goy ass off). Whomever is going to be commanding this base is going to be wallowing in hog heaven . . . opps, my bad. Not kosher. Well, he’ll be wallowing all right . . . lucre in the land of the moocher.

    I feel sorry for the troops that get sent to Israhell. They’ll be co-opted by the Zionists. It’s like having guests over, and living high on the hog . . . dang, I keep doing that. Look how wonderful we our. Bring out the finest silver, man . . the gold, man . . . but don’t go in that room. Stay out of THAT room. That’s where they keep the dead Palestinians . . . Rachel Corrie’s remains . . . the files on the U.S.S. Liberty. The Dancing Israeli’s . . . Queen Ishtar . . . their thermite . . .

    And for those paying attention, “history before” is an oxymoron. Just as the rest of the asleep world, you never get it until it’s pointed out.

  5. It is totally outrageous that a new U.S, base is being constructed in Israel which did the attack of 9/11. Our country and Congress and President are total traitors to every principle of the Constitution they took a meaningless oath to defend. Every military officer down to the lowest private is a traitor and guilty of committing war crimes in our good name. This country is now a shameful disgrace to the Founders and all Americans and the world. It deserves its impending demise both financial and otherwise. Americans are the biggest brainwashed idiots and fools on planet earth. I believe if the Founders were alive today they would say we all deserve to lose what they provided for us.

    • Here is one article of many that Israel did 9/11: https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11/Israel_did_it Brief Quote:
      “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday. [7]”

    • “Commerce with all nations, alliance with known, should be our motto” Thomas Jefferson
      It’s too bad that the U.S. allows the traitors to be in our midst. The dual citizens of Israhell and the U.S. want it both ways. Pick a country, and live under it’s rule . . . pick two and have them serve in our cabinets, high positions of business/commerce and industry . . . yeah, what the fvck could go wrong there?!? When the goals, aims and alliances benefit Israhell . . . with the blood of our citizens, we truly deserve to lose what they provided for us. They’re chipping away at the 4th Amendment, tossing the dice as it were. Gunning for the 2nd. And say :”boycott” and Israhell in the same two word sentence, and it’s a crime . . . bye bye 1st Amendment. The U.S. base is nothing more than a chess move . . . with the pawns at risk. They’ll probably stage a bombing a’la Beirut 1983 and blame it on . . . oh, I don’t know . . . pick a patsy, any patsy. Amal’e Cloony’s uncle fvcker cut his teeth on that blow out sale.

    • What is the most basic function of the four star generals of the U.S.? Answer: To defend this country from outside attack. They have been provided virtually unlimited resources to anticipate any and every possible mode of attack on this country by experts in every possible conceivable field. How did they do on 9/11/01 in their most basic function of “defending” America from attack by Israel on 9/11/01? Answer: They dismally failed either by standing down or being ordered to stand down. In other words they are total cowardly traitors to everything this once great country stands for but now has lost. What did they do to defend this country that day? Nothing. Were they called to account for their traitorous cowardly actions? No, they were permitted to retire on lavish undeserved pensions instead of being prosecuted and punished for their cowardly dishonest actions against the country they took a meaningless oath to “protect and defend” under any and all costs. Shame is far too polite a word to describe their cowardly acts and the subsequent cowardly acts of Congress and President and former Traitor Coward President Bush and VP Coward Traitor Cheney both traitors as well. This country is gone folks. Need more proof? Next time you see one of these traitors in a store ask them why they sold out America to criminals in Israel on 9/1l/01? Ask them why they believe they should be permitted to live with civilized Americans any longer after having betrayed them.

  6. IRGC designated as a terrorist organization? Why, for killing Israelica’s ISIS partners? Why haven’t Russia, China, Iran and everyone else designated the CIA as a terrorist organization, citing the innumerable examples of the CIA facilitating the overthrow of elected foreign governments by using the sales of illicit drugs like heroin and cocaine to fund their endeavours, to justify their decision?

    Iran is not just another weak, defenceless nation that you can just walk right over. You go to fight them on their soil and the only way you leave is in a body bag. The Middle East understands that Israel is the one pushing for this war, and if all out war breaks out, does Israel really believe that America can protect them? If all out war breaks out, real missiles, (not bottle rockets) will rain down on the apartheid nation, like the fires of heaven rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah, leaving nothing but pillars of salt behind. I guess in this case, we’ll have pillars of kosher salt.

    • Also, the American military is no different than Daesh, especially in the Middle East. They are both illegally occupying, murderous forces who kill innocent men, women and children indiscriminately. Ask any of the survivors of the countless illegal air strikes committed by America, if they were terrified by the attack. Whether the destruction is caused by a deluded maniac wearing a suicide vest, or a fighter jet deploying laser guided munitions, the effect is still the same. Fear and death. Not to mention, everyone knows that America created ISIS and has sustained it’s presence for more than a decade.
