Iranian general slams US Democrats’ hypocrisy in election campaign
A high-ranking Iranian military official took a swipe at the US Democratic Party for its fraudulent conduct in the electoral campaign ahead of the US presidential election and distorting the reality about its failed policies toward Iraq and Syria.
According to Tasnim news agency, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, Senior Military Adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, said Democrats are fueling conflicts in Iraq and Syria in order to cover up their failed tactics over the past years and portray them as an active policy to deceive American voters.
The democrats, who have been pledging victory against terrorists in Syria and Iraq for years, have turned the tide of war in terrorists’ favor, the senior general deplored.
The top general also slammed the US for bombing the Syrian Army and voluntary forces in Syria and killing Sunni voluntary forces in Iraq, saying such bloodshed has been misrepresented as counterterrorism efforts ahead of the US presidential election.
Major General Firouzabadi also cautioned the American people against their politicians’ deceitful conducts, stressing that the American taxpayer bears the cost of such acts of violence and bloodshed.
Washington’s belligerent policies are of no benefit to the American people and are adopted by order of the Zionists, who have occupied Palestine, and by Saudi Wahhabists’ provocations, he went on to say.
While the US presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for November 8, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump defended their respective party platforms on Middle East issues.
