Obama made a deal with the Islamist Terrorist Regime of Iran, betrayed the Syrian Rebels and handed Syria as a puppet satellite to Iran.

Let us take a look at a series of events which has led for the Obama Administration to betray the Syrian Rebels, submit to Iran’s will and hand Syria as a satellite to Iran.

Iran Threatens USA and Israel on Syria
IRI Massive Strike Will Occur if Military Action Launched on Syria

Iran is threatening to launch a massive missile strike against Israel if the United States attacks Syria for using chemical weapons against its own people, which could touch off a full-blown war in the region.
“The day of reckoning is near,” according to Hossein Shariatmadari, the chief editor of Kayhan newspaper, an outlet controlled by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

An Op-Ed penned by Shariatmadari Tuesday warned that the impending confrontation between the West and Syria would “provide the long-awaited opportunity for revenge against Israel and America.”

The editor recalled the U.S.-led attack on Baghdad on March 20, 2003, and President George W. Bush’s boast to reporters seven days later that the “Iraq war is over.” But when the last U.S. soldiers were leaving Iraq in December 2011, nearly 4,500 Americans had been killed and the war had cost America trillions of dollars.

Abu Hajer, the commander of Zolfaqar Battalion fighting in Syria to protect the Bashar Al Assad regime. Zolfaqar and Abolfazl Abbas Battalions are amongst the IRI’s IRGC Iranian Foreign Legion of the Qods Force mostly made up of the Iraqis and Lebanese Shiites.

Shariatmadari said that Washington, instead of open war against Syria, has been waging a proxy war against the Assad regime with the help of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt. He said now it is ready to directly confront Syria militarily, one of the members of the Resistance Front along with Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. However, despite Syrian rebels receiving financial and military support from those Middle East countries, not only has the Assad regime not been overthrown but it has opened a “new chapter for the Resistance where it formed the forces of ‘defense of Homeland,’ a force similar to the Basij militias (in Iran).”

Iran has long drawn a red line around the Assad regime. And Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon, Israel’s neighbor, are armed with thousands of missiles. The three members of the Resistance Front have a joint war room.

“Because of the failure of the intended proxy war, America and some Arab and European countries are preparing to attack Syria on the false claims that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons,” the editor said. “However, America can certainly start the war but it won’t be the one to end it.”

Shariatmadari said that Israel is the “Achilles’ heel of America and its European allies and without a doubt with the start of an attack on Syria, thousands of missiles will rain down all over the occupied lands (Israel), which will destroy its critical facilities as it was obvious that its missile defense system (the Iron Dome) could not prevent missiles reaching Tel Aviv.”

He also warned Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and others who support attacking Syria that they themselves will come under attack from Syria.

“Muslims should welcome the news of an attack on Syria as it will provide the long-awaited opportunity for revenge, which should destroy the enemies of Islam,” Shariatmadari concluded.

eyed Reza Taghavai, the head of Iran’s Policy Council of Friday Prayers, hinted that Khamenei is guiding the events in Syria, Lebanon and Gaza despite Iran publicly saying that it has nothing to do with them, Fars News Agency reported Monday. “People stand tall because of (Khamenei’s) guidance and in Syria where it has resisted against the unbelievers,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Islamic regime’s reporting agency published images of commanders of the Zolfaqar Battalion fighting in Syria. It said that the Zolfaqar and Abolfazl Abass battalions are mostly made up of Iraqi and Lebanese Shiites in fighting the Syrian rebels.

The agency published the images of Zolfaqar’s commander, Abu Hajer, visiting the holy site in the city of Mashhad in Iran.

Iran’s Qods Forces have long trained Shiites to fight alongside Assad’s forces in Syria. Many of these fighters enter Syria through Iraq.

Last week an alleged chemical weapons attack targeted the outskirts of Damascus, which so far has taken the lives of more than a thousand civilians. The attack was later confirmed by the United States and European countries, who called for a response. The Obama administration has hinted in recent days that there will be a military response to using chemical weapons, which Secretary of State John Kerry called “a moral obscenity.”

Meanwhile, Foreign Policy magazine reported today that U.S. eavesdropping confirmed the existence of the chemical attack.

“Last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with the leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people,” the magazine reported.
“Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services,” Foreign Policy said in a statement. “That is the major reason why American officials now say they’re certain that the attacks were the work of the Bashar al-Assad regime – and why the U.S. military is likely to attack that regime in a matter of days.”


Syria Stalemate
Indecision will have Grave Consequences

President Obama’s indecisiveness in dealing with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s two-year civil war has emboldened the radicals who rule Iran to pursue nuclear weapons.

Iran’s decision-makers have long thought that the Obama administration is not willing to engage in a military confrontation in the region, specifically over the regime’s illicit nuclear program.

A recent report in the newspaper Kayhan, which is directly supervised by the supreme leader, stated that the fear of the fallout from a war with Syria has caused division in the West and has forced it to back down. Indeed, the British Parliament has already vetoed a strike against Syria; Congress, on the eve of debate, is already showing signs it may, too.

If that happens, a nuclear nightmare that we haven’t seen since the early days of the Cold War could soon be at our doorstep.

The regime thinks that its strategy of prolonging negotiations as it develops nuclear weapons and their delivery systems long ago proved that Western rhetoric of war was a bluff. The West, it reasons, would have to accept a nuclear-armed Iran instead of further confrontation that would worsen the global economy.
“It is quite clear that when we watch the current arguments between America and Israel over Iran, the Obama administration is quite confused,” Mohammad Mohammadi, an Iranian international affairs and nuclear specialist, wrote last year in Kayhan.

“Iran has always known that America and the West needed a way to solve the nuclear issue with some honor,” Mr. Mohammadi said, “and today it is quite visible that with the defeat of America’s policies toward Iran, the talk about a need to solve the Iranian nuclear issue diplomatically is a way to obtain that honor.”
The lack of action by America and its allies over Mr. Assad’s killing machine, which so far has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 Syrians (including many women and children), Iran’s involvement in Syria and its pursuit of the nuclear bomb have only emboldened the Islamic regime.

As I reported in The Washington Times a year ago, the Revolutionary Guards’ media outlet not only claimed Tehran had armed its proxies such as the terrorist group Hezbollah with chemical and microbial weapons, but it also warned of any intervention in Syria. Citing the weak economies in America and Europe, it claimed that the West would not engage Syria with its military of 220,000 active personnel and 240,000 reserves, Iran’s massive forces and Hezbollah.

Should Israel and its allies succeed in unraveling Syria so the Assad regime loses control, the Guards commentary said, there are but two scenarios:

“Groups armed with weapons of mass destruction (chemical, microbial and nuclear bombs), which have been obtained on the black market, will surely target Tel Aviv.

“Other countries with different motivations from revenge to a change in the balance of power in the region looking for the elimination of Israel from the world’s map will use the chaos created without accepting any responsibility.”

In order to understand the situation with Syria and Iran, one must understand the view of the radicals ruling Iran, who control much of the events in the Middle East and who think that the West is incapable of stopping them. “The West, and its ‘Shock and Awe’ policy, has tasted defeat with its confrontation with Iran, Syria and Hezbollah and now understands that they can’t confront this front with their classic military. in fact, the West has become disarmed in the Middle East because its militaristic policies are no longer effective,” said, Saadollah Zarei, another analyst of the regime.

I have said for a long time that any message of weakness by America and its allies will result in the same war that the West is looking to avoid, but on a much greater scale.

Even if Mr. Obama gets Congress‘ approval for a limited strike, not only will it do little to change the game on the ground, but with America and the West openly showing that they are weary of war, our enemies will continue to test our resolve.

This brings us to the gravest threat in the region, which could possibly destabilize not only world peace, but the global economy: Iran’s illicit nuclear program. More than 10,000 centrifuges are enriching uranium daily while a heavy-water plant capable of producing plutonium as a second path to nuclear weapons is moving toward completion — and this when the regime has the largest inventory of ballistic missiles in the region.
The recent show of weakness by America and the West over Mr. Assad’s alleged chemical attack on his own people has the Iranian regime’s tyrants thinking that their path to nuclear weapons is guaranteed.
Imagine what life will look like after nuclear weapons are in the hands of the radicals and then those arms proliferate to Hezbollah, Mr. Assad and others. America must not let this happen.


IRI Threaten Brutal Attacks on Americans and Obama Family if US Invades Syria

As Congress debates whether to support President Obama’s call for a limited strike against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons, Iran is vowing to back Bashar al-Assad’s regime to the hilt and threatening to unleash terrorism should the U.S. strike.

Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Qods Forces, Wednesday told the Assembly of Experts — the body that chooses the supreme leader — that “we will support Syria to the end.”

And in an unprecedented statement, a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.

Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think thank, and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.

“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],” he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].”

A similar act was committed in a video of the torture of William Buckley, a CIA station chief who was abducted in Beirut in 1984 and later killed by Hezbollah on Iran’s order. That video was dropped off at the U.S. Embassy in Athens. Former CIA Director William Casey later described what he saw in the video: “They had done more than ruin his body. His eyes made it clear his mind had been played with. It was horrific, medieval and barbarous.”

In addition, Forghani warned, “We should remind Obama that if you are a bastard, there are other bastards all around the world who can assault Sasha.” The statement is written in both English and Farsi, but in the Farsi version, Forghani clearly stated that Sasha will be raped by someone who has been able to get close to the Obama family.

“Obama will attack Syria and then you’ll go to hell, and the world’s public opinion will accept that you deserve to be attacked and assaulted, so please attack,” Forghani concluded.

Forghani, though not holding an official position within the regime but in a country that tightly censures the media, has stated his radical positions in articles that have been run by the majority of the regime’s media and has written several commentaries on the need for the destruction of Israel. One such article described the need for the Islamic Republic to have nuclear weapons and in another he laid out the legal case for the annihilation of Israel and all Jewish people. The latter, which ran in all of the regime’s media outlets, called for a pre-emptive strike on Israel. Based on this pre-emptive doctrine, he suggested, several “ground zero” points of Israel must be destroyed and its people annihilated.

Forghani cited the last census by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics that shows Israel has a population of 7.5 million citizens of which a majority, 5.7 million, are Jewish. The census breaks down the districts with the highest concentration of Jewish people, indicating that three cities, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, contain over 60 percent of the Jewish population. Forghani wrote that Iran could target the three with its Shahab 3 ballistic missiles, killing all of its inhabitants.

Forghani’s threats last Wednesday were further emphasized by the chief commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, who on the same day told the regime’s Fars News Agency that “America’s vision in its ability for a limited strike in Syria is an illusion. The reactions will be beyond Syria’s borders … [and] those who participate with America in this matter will soon witness threats on their national security.”

Taeb, the head of the Ammar Strategic Base, had previously stated that, “Syria is the 35th province [of Iran] and a strategic province for us … if we lose Syria, we won’t be able to hold Tehran.”

Regime officials, including Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have made it clear on many occasions that Assad’s regime is their red line and that any attack on Syria will have grave consequences for Israel and America.
Obama has stated that he is determined to punish Assad for the alleged recent chemical attack on his own people that killed more than 1,400 civilians, hundreds of them children.
