Nasrallah Slams "Economical-Psychological War" On Axis Of Resistance

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on March 8 that new sanctions on his party, Iran and Syria are a part of an “economical-psychological war” on the so called axis of resistance.

“The financial difficulties which face all the axis of resistance is part of the US-Israeli war on it … We expect escalating sanctions and financial measures against Hezbollah and all the Resistance allies in the Middle East,” the Lebanese leader said at a ceremony held on the 30th anniversary of establishing the Islamic Resistance Support Association.

Nasrallah stressed that the Hezbollah and its allies will emerge from this financial war victorious. He also called on his supporters to donate funds and said that the group needs public support during this war.

In his first response to the British decision to recognize Hezbollah as a terrorist group, Nasrallah said that that the decision is a result of the West’s failure in the region and expected that more countries will take a similar decision soon.

“When the place us on terror lists, that’s because we defeated them, we broke them and foiled their projects … The recognize us as terrorists because they are today incapable [of doing anything] after the failure of their wars and projects,” Nasrallah said.

The U.S. and its allies ramped up their sanctions on Hezbollah, Syria and Iran last year in an effort to break their alliance. However, the sanctions have apparently brought the the allies  even closer.

    No Western nation would be able to withstand thousands of their dead and crippled soldiers being returned home these days. The mass of Public Opinion would would be angered to see the evidence of covert and fraudulent NATO intervention in wars that most people have no idea about anyway.

    Hezbollah is the only force that prevented the Israeli take over of Lebanon and is also a formidable force that is supporting the Syrian government.

    The REAL terrorists in all of the Middle East Mayhem are the US Coalition of Terror.

      You’re missing the point of the article, Florian.

      Israel and the Israeli-firster US chickenhawks don’t want actual military confrontation with ‘enemies of Israel’ (= ‘axis of resistance’ ) because of the reasons you stated.

      The US prefers economic warfare because it’s an easy sell to an oblivious and otherwise guillible public. Nasrallah probably realizes that the psychological war conducted by the US is mostly directed at US citizens and US public opinion, and (to a much smaller extend) global public opinion, but he should have said that clearly. The US government doesn’t really care what the people of Southen Lebanon, Iran or Syria think and can’t influence them anyway.

      I’m not even sure the US Coalition of Terror even believes they can realistically change the national policy of any of their targeted ‘enemies’ – they just want tho make the little people there suffer as much as humanly possible. Mostly for disobeying the wishes of the coalition (= US). Why? Well, that’s what psychopaths DO.

    The U.S. Treasury lives on Sanctions. There is no GNP. Step away from that dollar.

    Hezbollah is in Parliament a Government representing Lebanese people. Britain declaring them a “terrorist group” is beyond ridiculous. Hezbollah over the years have been on a very successful drive to get rid of corruption. (Hint: we know which regime loves corruption more than anything in neighbouring countries.) So maybe this is the real threat of Hezbollah, Lebanon could become a very successful, non-corrupt Arab country, quite able to stand up to Israel. I have a feeling it is precisely this that cannot be allowed. We mustn’t forget that before the jihadist proxies attacked Syria, that country was achieving great milestones in development. Clearly that could not be allowed either…
