Zarif reminds Trump: Did you know Netanyahu pushed you into Afghan war, too?

Press TV – September 10, 2019

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reminds the United States that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu contributed to the launch of the US-led invasion of Afghanistan before he tried bringing about the Washington-spearheaded war on Iraq.

“Did you know, realDonaldTrump (the name of the US president’s Twitter account), that Netanyahu was also instrumental in pushing the US into the Afghanistan quagmire?” Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.

The tweet incorporated a video showing the Israeli premier’s promoting the Afghan invasion before its realization in 2001 during a congressional hearing in the US.

“His (Netanyahu’s) motto since 1986: Fight to the last American soldier,” Zarif added. He was citing a remark made by the Israeli politician in a book written by him that year, to which Netanyahu himself is seen referring during the hearing.

About 18 years on, Zarif said, the United States is now bogged down in Afghanistan and unable to “get out,” referring to Washington’s inability to strike a peace deal with the Afghan militant group Taliban, which the US overthrew through the invasion but failed to eliminate.

On Monday, Zarif had posted another tweet indicating Netanyahu’s influence in realization of the US-led invasion of Iraq two years after the invasion of Afghanistan.

In that tweet, he pointed to Netanyahu’s remarks back in 2002, during which the Israeli premier promoted a US-led military aggression against the Arab country by claiming that it would hugely benefit the region.

The United States led its allies in the invasion a year later. The war was ensued by devastating chaos in Iraq and elsewhere in the region. The tumultuous aftermath also paved the way for the emergence of Takfiri terrorists in the Middle East.

“Remember his “GUARANTEE” of “positive reverberations” in ’02?” the tweet read, and also incorporated a video of Netanyahu’s giving the pledge.

  1. Did anyone know that the poppy fields in Afghanistan were destroyed before the United States got hold of them?

  2. “His (Netanyahu’s) motto since 1986: Fight to the last American soldier,”

    If that is not enough to make every American’s blood boil, I don’t know what is………Israel despises Goyim, and the Goyim slavishly obey Israel’s every instruction…..Like hypnotised dopes……

    “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, It can dry up and blow away”…..Benjamin Netanyahu 2002.

    • Netanyahu, 2001: “I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction.”

  4. Zarif should know that Trump rightly pointed out on the evening of 9/11 that there must have been bombs in the WTC. He was then apparently clued in by his 9/11 criminal friends such as Giuliani and Silverstein. A day an a half later he was being interviewed by Deutsche Welle and singing the official song. Trump is an accessory after the fact.
