US seeking disintegration of entire Mideast: Iran MP

Press TV – August 17, 2015

A senior Iranian lawmaker has slammed recent remarks by a top US military commander on Iraq’s disintegration, saying Washington seeks to break down the entire Middle East.

“The US has created Daesh based on a calculated scheme in order to realize the Greater Middle East plan and disintegrate the region. That’s why the Americans are bringing up the issue of Iraq’s disintegration,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis), said on Sunday.

The Iranian lawmaker’s remarks came after US Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno, who once served as the top US commander in Iraq, said on August 12 that partitioning Iraq “is something that could happen” and “might be the only solution.”

The remarks came as a controversial US Congress bill, the draft of which was released in April, proposes the division of Iraq into three states and allows the Kurdish forces and the Sunni tribesmen to be armed directly without Baghdad’s approval.

The bill stipulates that 25 to 60 percent of the USD 715-million aid money allegedly allocated to Iraq in its war against Daesh will be directly supplied to Sunni and Kurdish forces.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi strongly condemned the comments by the top US military commander as “irresponsible,” saying they reflected “ignorance of the Iraqi reality.”

Iraqi politicians, including members of the parliament, as well as religious leaders have also voiced their opposition to the bill.

Syria no-fly zone

Elsewhere in his remarks, Boroujerdi said that Turkey’s pushing for a no-fly zone over Syria is a “strategic mistake” for Ankara.

He said that the move is a violation of international law as well as sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Arab country.

“Turkey is expected to adopt a policy that will contribute to regional stability and security, not [one that will] lead to instability in the region,” he added.

Turkey has been pushing for a no-fly zone over northern Syria, claiming that such a buffer zone could protect Ankara from Syrian airstrikes against foreign-backed militants.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview last week that he would work with the US to establish what he called a “safe area,” claiming that the buffer zone would protect civilians.

The US has not given the official go-ahead for the plan yet.

  1. So, the ‘sky-is-falling “existential threat” that we regularly hear from Israeli zionists is actually a zionist scheme to provide a smokescreen over their own actions to destroy Islamic regimes.

    Too bad for zionists that they nearly completely depend upon deception and lies for their ‘winning formula’.

    • The “factions” who are the aggressors may well be infiltrated and motivated by the zionists’ schemes.

      Look into the origins of Hamas which Israel helped to create as an opposition group that Israel could control–and pit against the Palestinian Authority.

      Divide and conquer takes more than just ‘factions’ to accomplish and the synagogue of satan members are masters of pitting others against one another.
