US, allies accomplices in repressions

A senior Iranian commander says the US and its Western allies are accomplices in the violent repression of peaceful protests by regional regimes.

“Undoubtedly, the US and its European allies are complicit in the massacre of the nations that do not tolerate regimes subservient to foreigners,” ISNA quoted Deputy Head of Iran’s Armed Forces Joint Chiefs of Staff Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri as saying on Wednesday.

He said that regional “reactionary” regimes, who enjoy the support of the US, UK and Israel, have added to their already-poor record of performance by trying to brutally quell their people’s demands.

Jazayeri warned the regimes against the ongoing violent clampdown on their people and said such repressions would bear no results but only add to nations’ animosity toward the ruling systems as well as the hegemonic powers supporting such regimes.

“Regional nations’ hatred will come back to haunt these countries (the US and its allies) eventually. Therefore, it is incumbent on their (American and European) intellectuals and people not to allow such hatred grow further,” he said.

He also described misinformation about the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a failed attempt and said the US, UK and Israel launched psychological warfare against the IRGC as the body played an important role in safeguarding the Islamic Republic.

The IRGC, a dynamic body in the Islamic Republic of Iran, is like “a thorn in the eye for the enemy” and this is why the enemy has targeted it, he added.

Jazayeri described Iran’s soaring popularity as a challenge to hegemonic powers and said the more the US and Israel develop animosity toward Iran, the more the Islamic Republic becomes popular.
