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


… from Press TV,  Tehran

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. 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. 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: 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]”

    • 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.

  3. 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.

  4. It, the new US base in Israel, also allows for a false flag attack on this new base as a means to attack Iran. No oversight, no way to prove or disprove what happens, or doesn’t happen in Israel.
