Qassemi

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Bahram Qassemi, said on Wednesday that France’s “wrong”policies is what led to the war in Syria.

“Everyone knows that France is itself one of the countries whose wrong policies have created the current crisis in Syria and complicated the worrying and dire situation there,” he said.

The comments were out of the French Foreign Minister’s Jean-Marc Ayrault who blamed the Syrian war on Iran’s support for Syria.

“Unfortunately the French foreign minister’s remarks are unrealistic and unexpected, despite the understanding he should have about regional and international affairs,” Qassemi added.

Qassemi advised Ayrault to study the history of the region’s past few decades, especially the role of some French statesmen in supporting and arming criminals like former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 war on Iran, instead of making false and uncalled-for remarks.

Just look at the HUGE reserves of shale gas in France. Just need to launch its fracking and France doesn’t needs oil at all. No fun, the huge post I did here seems censored…

BTW, Qassemi is laughable at pointing the french arms sales to Iraq as the biggest supplier of weapons to his country during the Iran-Ira war was… ISRAEL! And now, they buy the Chengdu J-10 jetfighter which is built in China under israelian license as it’s nothing else than the IAI Lavi definitive version as it’d be too expensive if built by IAI!!!

You’ll have no problems to find pics of iranian soldiers with UZI SMG : they bought 45k from Israel. Guess how the Iranian F-4 Phantom II are still flying : they had spare parts from Israel too, even the retired Israeli ones were sent to Iran. And the reverse engineering of all western stuff Iran builds now? Hey, Israelis even reverse engineered Dassault’s Mirages! They helped Iran to have their own weapon industry! Why? Because KSA (or former Saddam’s Iraq) are a bigger threat!

Seems there’s at least 1 guy that like doing some thumb downs without either reading or facing reality or at least, confronting my arguments… Nevertheless, dude : do your researchs, is it about who France supports, about the shale gas reserves, about the sales of weapons to Iran by both Israel and the USA and Rouhani doing the IranGate deal, about the IAI Lavi/J-10, about the infamous f*****g pipeline that killed 300k ppl and still not built, etc. All can be verified and recouped from multiple sources! BTW, Iran-AF tried to bomb Osirak nuclear reactor but did little damages… Guess… Read more »

France stepping up aggression against Syria. What Nations will help Syria against this onslaught?

If what you said was true, France would not ONLY support YPG/SDF. Now, due to the fact that 16 of the 50 biggest corps in France are US companies, let’s say that France has to seem to support the US or face economic retaliations which may lead to +1 to 2M unemployed people but look at facts : France isn’t helping the proxy war in Syria.

Now, you have to read between the lines : Iranian influence in Ira, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon is making the Gulf states going bonkers and paranoid. They see this as a serious threat then fund and arm Qaeda and affiliates like crazies.
Add to this the pipeline Qatar+KSA want to build to Turkey. For the same reason, Erdogan wants the kurds out of the area where the pipeline is planed and is doing ethnic cleansing!

But in fact, many western countries and eastern countries so as both China and Russia should thank Iran a lot to be the scarecrow of the region as a lot of them have their oil-money back through huge weapon sales to everybody in the region! And when things get really hilarious is KSA who’s f*****g well armed to the teeth gets p***y-whipped by Houthis in sandals!

In fact, the only political solution I see is Assad accepting the pipeline in exchange Qatar, KSA and Turkey stopping any support to takfiri gangs, then, once they begin to seriously collapse, having IRGC out of Syria.
Now, a dual pipeline from Iran through Iran, Syria then Turkey to EU might be built on Qatari/KSA/Turkey expenses as compensation as their companies should help the rebuilding of Syria at their expenses to avoid being sued in international courts, families of victims might receive compensations too.
I simply don’t see ANY other political solution to get out of the conflict.

Well, I think Mr.Qassemi should learn a bit about history too, now, just talk about the performances of their favourite terrorist proxy in Lebanon, even if they try to build themselves a virginity for a few years, they have a tremendous past : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombings and whatabout hostages in Lebanon? https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_des_otages_du_Hezbollah_au_Liban Very funny practice when you know that their Islamic Republic began by taking US embassy staff as hostages. and this is not saying about the little habit Khomeini too for several years to make about 100 ppl a day having a meeting with a firesquad… Now, Mr.Qassemi could be grateful… Read more »
