US Weapons to Terrorist Groups in Iraq to fight Iran and Shia Muslims

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) ,-  Ali Larijani, the Speaker of Iran´s Parliament (Majlis), has stated that a former US Envoy to Iraq has promised US weapons to terrorist groups in Iraq under the condition that the weapons would be used against Iran and followers of the Shia school of Islam in Iraq.

Iran has, according to Larijani, acquired the information that the former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq has held a meeting with terrorists, and that he has said that the USA is willing to supply weapons to militants under the conditions that the weapons were pointed towards Iran and Shia Muslims.

Speaker of Iran´s Parliament Ali Larijani. We have information that the former US Ambassador to Iraq has promised weapons to terrorist organizations.

The Iranian top-legislator stressed, that the United States, today clearly and openly states that they are supplying weapons to extremists and radical elements in Syria. Referring to the United States increased, overt state-sponsorship of terrorism since 2011, Larijani said, “it seems that the veils have somewhat been lifted”. 

The Speaker of Iran´s Parliament also stressed, that the same, foreign-backed radical and terror groups who are involved in the unconventional war on Syria, have destroyed mosques and other religious centers in both Syria and Iraq.

In 2012 Saudi Arabia reopened a smuggling route which is beginning in the Anbar province and which has previously been used during the US occupation of Iraq to provide weapons to Al-Qaeda in Iraq. In 2012 the route was reactivated to smuggle weapons and other support to insurgents in Syria.

The administration of Iraq´s P.M. Nouri al-Malaki significantly increased security at the border in December 2012, after it transpired that Saudi Arabia also had begun to substantially support terrorist in Iraq which were targeting Shia Muslims as well as the government and security forces.

In 2012, the USA removed the Mujahedin e Khalq (MKO) from the terror list. The MKO, with bases in Iraq, has been waging a western-backed insurgency against Iran since the 1980th.

The MKO is, according to Iranian figures responsible for the death of more than 17.000 Iranians. After removing the MKO from the terror list, the USA brokered an agreement between the MKO and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA / UCK ), providing a base for the MKO in Kosovo.

Both organizations in Kosovo are reportedly involved in training “holy warriors” before deploying them in Batallion sized groups via Turkey to Syria. According to an officer  with the US Special Forces at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, who is known to nsnbc international, both the KLA/UCK and the MKO are operating in liaison with US Special Forces in Kosovo.

The MKO has deployed troops who are taking part in the US-backed, unconventional war against Syria. The last time that the MKO was used politically was in July 2013, when the MKO claimed that it had information about “a secret Iranian nuclear facility”

Among other organizations in Iraq which are receiving state-sponsorship including weapons, funds, logistics, liaison with special forces and other support from Saudi Arabia, the USA or other Western nations, is the Iraqi – Syrian al-Qaeda Franchise called “The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham”.

The Speaker of Iran´s Parliament, Ali Larijani however, did not explicitly state which terrorist organization the former US Ambassador to Iraq has promised the weapons, which are to be “pointed towards Iran and Shia Muslims”, nor did Larijani expound on the name of the particular ambassador otherwide than saying “the former ambassador”.
