On Thursday, the State Department announced in its 2016 report on terrorist activity that Iran is the top state sponsor of terrorism. It also announced ISIS as “the greatest threat globally.”

The report said that Iran “remained the foremost state sponsor of terrorism in 2015, providing a range of support, including financial, training, and equipment, to groups around the world.”

The United States recognizes Hezbollah and a variety of Iraqi Shia paramilitary groups as terrorist organizations.

The department was “concerned about a wide range of Iranian activities to destabilize the region.”

The report also described the global terrorist threat in 2015 as “increasingly decentralized and diffuse,” noting that ISIS once again was “the greatest threat globally.”

The State Department’s findings are farcical when they do not consider their own sponsorship of terrorism groups such as the YPG, various Islamist groups in Syria and right-wing paramilitaries in Latin America.

Funny fact : former DST (renamed DGSI, french homeland intelligence) boss considers that the biggest backers of terrorism are Saudi Arabia and Qatar…
As YPG are not PKK, well, considering their actions, my grand dad who fought the nazis in the french resistance was a terrorist too… Funny fact, here, we call guys like him… heroes…

Well, in fact, considering that Saudi Arabia spent 70bln $ since 1979 in the spread of their wahhabi nauseous ideology…

They don’t care about it : saying this is enough for the retards who watch Fox-News, MSNBC, etc…
All I know : do not make the same stupid thing Saddam did by saying he wasn’t developping nukes and that he hadn’t WMDs 🙂 When, after the invasion of Iraq, US were threatening North-Korea, Kim Jong Il declared “we’re not develloping nukes… We have nukes!”… I’ve never seen the DS or even all the hawks of neo-cons or in the US press becoming so calm…

The biggest terror sponsor is Saudi Arabia.
