On Urgent Search For New War: Pompeo Alleges Iran New 'Home Base' Of Al-Qaeda

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

You can read this article in German. LINK

Despite the recent lack of love from Israel (Mr. Netanyahu is preparing to become the best friend of Biden), the outgoing administration of President Donald Trump continues to make all what is possible to sacrifice some American blood to the altar of interests of Tel Aviv.

On January 12, still Secretary of State Mike Pompeo alleged that Iran has become a new “home base” for Al-Qaeda worse than Afghanistan. In a speech a week before leaving office, Pompeo also supported speculations that Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command was allegedly killed last year in Tehran, although he did not say that Israel carried it out.

“Al-Qaeda has a new home base. It is the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Pompeo said in a speech at the National Press Club. “I would say Iran is indeed the new Afghanistan –- as the key geographic hub for Al-Qaeda — but it’s actually worse.”

“Unlike in Afghanistan, when Al-Qaeda was hiding in the mountains, Al-Qaeda today is operating under the hard shell of the Iranian regime’s protection.”

Pompeo urged more international pressure, calling the alleged alliance a “massive force for evil all over the world.” The Secretary of State emphasized that the United States had fewer options in dealing with the group now it was “burrowed inside” that country.

Meanwhile, Facebook briefly banned the account of Iran’s state-run Press TV (about 4 million followers) saying that the international English news network is not eligible to use the social media platform. According to Press TV, the notification by Facebook said the decision was “final” adding that it could not provide additional information for “safety and security reasons.” Facebook, however, reversed the decision hours later in response to an appeal filed by Press TV. The page of the Iranian state-run media remains active as of now. Apparently, there are particular contradictions within Facebook regarding the stance towards Iranian media. At the same time, Big Tech had no concenrs when social media giants were deplatforming acting President Donald Trump and his supporters. Therefore, Facebook & Co hate Trump even more than Iran.

Together with the recent claims to designate Yemen’s Ansar Allah movement (the Houthis) a terrorist group and other aggressive moves of the US and Israel (like the assassination of a top nuclear scientist near Tehran), the claims about Iran’s alleged links with al-Qaeda are a logical part of the policy of the Trump administration. The White House has been doing all what it can to justify its aggressive approach against the Middle Eastern country.

At the same time, Iran, a Shiite state, is ideologically opposed both to Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Contrary to the Untied States and its ‘international coalition against ISIS’, Iranian forces have been fighting these terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq since the very start of their rise there. Often, in this fight, Iranian and Iranian-backed forces were fighting the terrorists directly supported by the US and its allies. Years after the collapse of al-Qaeda and ISIS hopes on establishing a terrorist state in Syria and Iraq, Washington still insists that Iranian forces supported the Assad regime in its ‘bloody war against opposition’. In these claims, the White House ignores that this ‘opposition’ in Syria in its majority is just al-Qaeda-linked militants.

Nonetheless, this does not stop the Trump administration from searching for a pretext to justify its military and economic aggression against Iran.

Their masters the Mossad gave them this policy. “By way of deception” and they in turn got it from their lord Satan the god of lies.

Just Me

Zionist prodding the US to get into a swan song war with Iran failed miserably and hopefully Biden will not totally kow tow to the Jew and AIPAC parasites.

Simon Ndiritu

He might, I am not optimistic about the Neoliberal clowns, Remember the brown-boy- Obama who went on to simultaneously bomb 5-brown countries while pretending to advance peace? Biden may very well try to advance the interest of MIC and Ziobankstars

Steve Standley

Just breathtaking lies without a shred of evidence. they couldn’t get Iran to take the baiting time and time again, so Pompeo has to just pull a pretext for war right out of his ass.

The Objective

I thought it is the U.S avoiding war not Iran.

Garga

Such cowards!
Everybody knows only cowards shoot down American fancy drones over “international waters” as they claim, whack US bases and detain British tankers right under the nose of their warships. Cowards also recently increased their Uranium fuel enrichment despite all the hot air and “we won’t let it happen” coming their way.

The bravest of the brave react to all this cowardice by… doing nothing!

Well, not exactly nothing, the British government released the pirated Iranian VLCC, Trump thanked Iran for not shooting down the crewed airplane accompanying the fancy drone and Israeli army emptied all their bases in the north after Hezbollah threat of retaliation. That counts for something, right?

Tommy Jensen

Theatre yes? Rouhani has US, Israeli, Iranian permanent Passports. Family close business relationship with Israel.

Zionism = EVIL

That is closer to the truth, very good Tommy, I am impressed with your growing retinue of salacious gossip. MAGA, MAGA !

Zionism = EVIL

Seriously, you guys bother to reply to a madrassa punk kissing Americunt arse for a few bucks trolling. Just take these clowns as a joke and laugh.

Simon Ndiritu

“The bravest of the brave react to all this cowardice by… doing nothing!”
Allow me to correct you, the brave responded by invoking the name of Al Qaeda, which they have been fighting since 2021, but which has somehow managed to survive and hop from one country to another and set up a ‘base’ in Iran. Isn’t it ridiculous?

Garga

Yes, that’s right. The same phenomenon with other Wahhabi terror groups like ISIS, Shabaab and Boku Haram, but AQ takes the prize for the longest unsuccessful continuous “fight”.

A typo, since 2001 is correct.

The Objective

Your reactions were very meager compared to the damage you suffered due U.S provocation. You suffered damage in both economic and human losses. Damages that cannot be reversed. All your actions were symbolic PR stunts to impress your supporters. But anyone with even a tiny brain could see that you chickened out.

Your leaders knew that shooting down a U.S drone won’t provide sufficient justification for America to attack the Iranian soil. It also came after America ravaged the Iranian economy. The British tanker incident was just a reciprocal action by Iran, knowing that Britain or the U.S won’t go to war over such skirmishes that could easily be resolved.

The uranium enrichment is just issue is just another symbolic move. While it appears as a brave move by Iran (which should have actually happened years ago had Iran been really brave), it is intended to put pressure on Biden to relieve sanctions without pre-conditions.

Iran threatened one thing that would convince the world of Iranian bravery should the regime fulfill that threat: Tehran said it will expel UN nuclear inspectors if the U.S does not lift sanctions. That will be the real action should Iran do it.

John Brown

The USSA has not attacked Iran because they can’t win a war against Iran. Winning defined by whose government will still exist after such a war. Iran’s government will exist the government of the Zio USSA and the Zio EU will not.

Iran has the racist supremacist global Jewish satanic slave empire
dictatorship by the balls and the throat. Thy can destroy Iran yes but
Iran can totally destroy them in return very easily.

The empire has destroyed its Euro Goyim hosts. It is now only supported by the Petro Zio dollar which depends on Saudi and gulf kingdoms oil being sold in Zio dollars, which Iran can destroy so the empire can never attack Iran unless assured of preventing Iran’s destroying of the gulf kingdoms oil production and therefore the Zio dollar. The empire can’t survive 90% plus unemployment wide scale famine etc They can’t even handle a very infectious version of the flu Covid because they are now so corrupt .

Iran does not need nuclear weapons to deter Israel as Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor is Hezbollah’s and Iran’s nuclear weapon against Israel. They have nuclear parity with Israel because of this reactor.
Its why Iran doesn’t need or want nuclear weapons. Dimona will give off massive amounts of radioactivity for years maybe decades more then 50 nuclear bombs worth when it is destroyed, leaving much of Israel uninhabitable for some time.

Just look at Chernobyl or the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disasters. The no go zones around both are still bigger than Israel.

If Israel and the so-called superior master Jewish race had any brains, they would dismantle the reactor for this reason alone.

I bet Hezbollah and Iran each have at least 150 missiles aimed at this
reactor. The plutonium, uranium etc., will be blasted to bits for
maximum nuclear fallout and radioactive contamination of all of Israel.

I wonder if Israel’s leaders are so stupid as to not realize such
things. when they decide to attack Iran with nuclear weapons to understand they will be committing suicide either way .

The Objective

I agree with some things you say here, but others are just the usual nonsense I read allover the SF community.
The petrodollar is America’s greatest weakness and has the power to bring down the U.S empire. After a war that lays oil infrastructures to waste, America would struggle to restore the petrodollar system. But if backed by its NATO allies, America would be able to restore the system through the same method it’s using in Syria. Thus, rebuilding oil facilities where possible and keeping them under control of its allied militias to ensure that it sells only in dollar. The U.S is more likely to succeed here because China is reluctant to get involved in the Middle East. China hasn’t any meaningful forces forces deployed close to the Middle East, which means China cannot respond adequately in an emergency. Russia will likely get involved to some extent, but it would be interested in reaching a deal with the U.S than try to bring America down and risk a bigger war. Russia would be more interested in dividing the spoils than fighting the U.S.

“Its why Iran doesn’t need or want nuclear weapons”
Please tell this Taqiyya bullshit to someone who might believe you, not me.

The bottonline is, the U.S has a pretty good chance to survive a war with Iran. But Iran doesn’t stand even a 5% chance. Much of Iran’s infrastructure will be laid to waste.

Arch Bungle

You thought wrong.

The US is seeking war on it’s own terms.

But Iran is not allowing the US its terms.

The Objective

“The US is seeking war on it’s own terms”
Lol. This ignorant comment is laughable. The U.S is already fully prepared for a war with Iran. All it needs is a good justification that the American people will support to the bitter end. Iran is refusing to provide that justification. Soleimani’s assassination was meant to provoke an Iranian response that’ll anger Americans at home. Obviously, Iran saw the bait.

Zionism = EVIL

Dumbass you are still peddling desperate crap ROFLMAO. Americunts are done lol

The Objective

LOL. You really think Iran is off the hook?
Biden wants regime change in Iran the subtle way (color revolution). Remember that Obama and Biden pulled one of the biggest color revolution Iran ever witnessed in 2009. Trump was more aggressive in pursuing regime change in Iran. But both democrats and republicans will not stop until they overthrow the regime in Tehran even if they manage to sign 100 nuclear deals with Iran.
But its nature, the Iranian regime will never reconcile with the west. Consequently, there’ll be a war some day. I have no doubt about this. It might have been delayed now with Trump’s election loss. But he’s not the last republican, and he has 74 million American voters supporting his policies. In fact, Iran is not even certain Biden will relief the regime of sanctions, let alone withdraw forces from Iraq.
We’ll see.

Lamumba

A bit to late for a ‘colour revolution’. There is one happening right now in the USA.

Just Me

You sound very angry and disappointed that US backed off. Iran is a bridge too far.

The Objective

Recent events don’t show Iran as a bridge too far. You fuckers think Biden is an Iran dove. We’ll see.

Lamumba

What can Biden do that Trump or Obama or Bush hasn’t tried to do? Nada.

ruca

Somebody please assassinate that land whale.

Concrete Mike

Land whales are an endangered species dude!!!

Dont want to piss the eco nazis do you?

The Objective

They don’t have the guts. Assassinating Trump or Pompeo is the last thing Iran wants right now.

ruca

I meant someone in the US of Arrogance. Iran won’t respond until physically attacked.

The Objective

I guess Soleimani and Fakhrazadeh was a spiritual attack then.

Arch Bungle

Especially since Pompeio’s stupidity works on Iran’s favour.

The Objective

If Pompeo’s stupidity was helping Iran, then why did Iran wage a very intense propaganda campaign on social media platforms to weaken Trump? They should have done the opposite.
I bet Biden is the guy you think is bad for Iran. That’s why your leaders keep saying they are willing to have a deal with him but not Trump.
You Shiites think you’re smart. But you are a bunch of morons. You showed your hands far too early, because you couldn’t control your mouth. Your enemies were able to see your intentions long before you are ready for their assault. Now you are on the defensive. Many of your people dying in Israeli and U.S strikes. Your economy weakened. And you’re staring with horror at the prospect of a highly devastating American war.
Iran will not have peace from America and its allies as long as the Mullah regime remains. Tell this to anyone.

Arch Bungle

Why though? Nobody has done more to make Iran, Russia and China as powerful as Pompeio and Trump.

Sad to see them go, they were doing a good job of sabotaging the US.

Garga

Unrelated to article but I couldn’t hold myself from posting it: Sheldon Adelson died.

I guess the world just became a bit better. Alas his wife manages his vast human trafficking and sex slave empire.

John Brown

Yes they compete against the child sex slave killing and human trafficking empires of other Zio oligarchs like George Soros.

Arch Bungle

One less mouth to feed.

Zionism = EVIL

Jews are like parasites even eat dirt and maggots after death.

Garga

One less parasite in fact…

“At the same time, Big Tech had no concenrs when social media giants were deplatforming acting President Donald Trump and his supporters. Therefore, Facebook & Co hate Trump even more than Iran.”

FB and co don’t hate Trump or Iran … they love money. If they could keep both Iran and Trump supporters on their site reading ads they would do it and happily cash the cheque.

They kicked Trump off because since the attack on the capital he’s being investigated for “seditious conspiracy”. If FB didn’t realize Trump was conspiring on FB before the attack on the capital that’s one thing but to continue supporting him after the capital attack sets them up for civil action as well as being named as a co-conspirator or aiding and abetting.

Garga

Social networks are not responsible for the content that their members share, it’s in their EULA which every member must agree to in order to have an account.
What you suggest is just an excuse.

HiaNd

Al-Qaeda has already 4 home bases – offices : Tel Aviv – Bibi’s office, Al-Tanf (U.S. military base), Ankara Erdogn’s office and in Riyadh (in Wahhabi “Center for Peace”).

4 offices is plenty, they don’t need 5th.

Kenny Jones ™

Finally do it already, in the last 8 days, don’t disappoint us Mike!

The Objective

You speak like you mean it. But deep down, you are praying desperately for Trump to leave office without a war. If you wanted to fight America like you always bluff, then Soleimani clearly gave you the chance, but you wasted it.

Kenny Jones ™

Iran can strike inside the US too, they’ve prepared 40 years for this war, they’re ready, US can only target individuals without protection and in a foreign country

tzatz

LMAO

False pride … ya f/kn braggart

Arch Bungle

imbecile

The Objective

“they’re ready”
Iran is ready? Their actions shows the opposite. they’ve been dodging a fight for decades.

Arch Bungle

Soleimani alone is just one man.

This is no reason to put the lives of millions at risk.

Iran needs to wait to be attacked on it’s soil by direct US military action, this will unify the population for their response.

The Objective

Soleimani’s killing was more than the murder of one man. I guess you didn’t see the crowd and the stampede that killed over a hundred. Soleimani was Iran’s next supreme leader, or at least president when he retires. the killing of one man cannot bring such a huge crowd (over a million) out in the streets protesting his assassination.
That was a big humiliation, especially considering the rhetoric of Iranian leaders. It was also a decapitation strike, and one that demoralized many Shiite fighters. It also exposed Iran’s weariness of war and paved the way for future assassinations, because America realized that it can raise its bar of provocation against Iran without fear of any meaningful response.
I don’t think an attack on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure will unite Iran more than Soleimani’s killing. In fact, I don’t think over a million Iranians would poor out in the streets to protest a U.S attack on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.
The assassination also drove fear and caution in the hearts of Iran’s policy makers, because Iran really checked Iran’s provocation of the U.S., especially in Iraq.
This was no ordinary event, and the repercussions will continue to ripple across the Middle East for years. the middle eastern game of power just changed.

The Objective

The lives of millions of people were put on the line from the time Iran adopted a policy to taking over Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem. All the Iranian actions are first aimed at taking over these three holy sites of Islam. But they’ll fail, like always, leading to a great massacre of people in the region, both Sunni and Shiite.

Zionism = EVIL

ROFLMAO!

The Objective

Meaningless nonsense. Iran is still licking its wounds inflicted by Trump.
We’ll see just what an Iran dove Biden is.
In addition to concession on its nuclear program, Iran has to make concessions on its militias, otherwise, there will be no peace.

Lamumba

And yet Trump lasted only four years whilst Iran (and Hezbollah and Assad) is still there….
‘More troops’? Sorry, troops will be needed in USA to quell the civil war. EU-, Australian-, New Zeeland-, Canadian lapdogs volunteering? Doubt it. USA is toast.

Arch Bungle

I know right! Time Iran got their chance to boot the US out if the middle east.

Best time to do it would be while an idiot like trump is in power.

verner

fatso is about as deranged as his boss, the commander in chief, donny the dunce trump. however those two got to be the two chief lard-asses is hard to fathom.

The Objective

However useless Trump and Pompeo are, Iran will NEVER forget them. They made your leaders cry like babies. It was such a funny sight to see old grownup men sobbing uncontrollably in public.

Just Me

I must have missed the crying.

comment image

The Objective

Here comes the typical Iranian hot air. Don’t forget that a lot of your Shiite fighters have already died and not a single American soldier has died at your hands. One day you’ll have to fight the U.S. And believe me, you won’t like to be in Iran during or after that war. Because there will be no country there.

Cromwell

If that was the case there would be thousands of dead Americans and Israel and Saudi Arabia would cease to exist.think about that Bitch.

<>

Israel is not going anywhere buddy, if anybody tries we can make sure they regret it.

Arch Bungle

Reminds me of 2006 – you zionazis regretted it quite quickly!

Just Me

Wanking full time.

Arch Bungle

Hot Air is typically jewish.
I find Iranians to be a quiet people.

The Objective

Then you aren’t following the Iranian press.
The difference between Iran and the Jews is that Jewish leaders often follow their threat with action. Iranians issue over a hundred threats without executing one.
So you also know that millions of Iranian lives would be on the line should a war with the U.S ensue. And yet you support the government’s policies, which is leading to this very eventuality.
Well, it’s too late to back down now I guess. Tensions will continue to mount until this explode in a regional bloody mess.

Cromwell

Mr fat bastard is a psychopath that needs putting down like a rabid dog.

Little does he know Iran,unlike Iraq or Afghanistan, cannot be invaded or occupied in this era. Neither can it be defeated with nuclear weapons.

Arch Bungle

Easy: Iran could aunch all it’s missiles on Tel Aviv, Haifa and Ashdod plus each of 52 US bases in the region.

Then take out all Aramcos facilities.
