What You Should Know About Iran Supporting Terror
The whole world is watching the escalating plot of Iran terror plots in Tehran’s war on America. The big question in this is whether USA will decisively respond. For three good decades, the Iranian regime, which is the main sponsor for various terror plots in the world, has killed American in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan as well as in Lebanon. It has also killed civilians in Berlin, Paris, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Buenos Aires as well as in other many places. Iranian regime has never suffered serious consequences of hostility; this might be the reason why they are very aggressive in sponsoring these terror attacks. It even has guts to carry out a hostile operation in the world’s superpower’s soil.
All these operations cannot be termed as rogue operations as they are directly supported by the IRGC and Squd Supreme leader Ali Khamenei who channeled massive resources in support of abroad operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and in other places in the world. This was a well orchestrated operation which was authorized at the highest government levels of Iranian regime. You should also note the IRGC special unit known as the Squd, is entirely responsible for training abroad terror group as well as giving military and financial support to the Iranian proxies. Besides, they are responsible for series of terror outrages abroad. To affirm this, they normally operate from Iranian Embassies where they disguise as menial workers, lowly diplomats or administrative personnel.
There should not raise questions of where the ultimate responsibility lies in this plot because Quds Force is part of IRGC, meaning that they are bound by their Supreme Leader loyalty oath. It is also clear that the execution of these operations is warranted and permitted by the Supreme Leader himself. A very good example of this is the planning and execution of Saudi Ambassador assassination in DC- this terror attack lacks merits to be termed as a rogue attack. Rather, it is a something very well planned and approved from the topmost echelons of the state and executed with very close cooperation with Iranian embassies and other missions abroad, possible even in America.
All eyes are on the escalating terror attacks which are planned, funded and executed by the Iran government. For how long will this continue? The surprise to the Iranian regime is whether American government will finally respond decisively considering that the Iran has close ties with Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah. This is not a faceoff to be given to anyone or partisan policy institutes. It has to be given to credible nonpartisan policy institute led by highly profiled experts who have been in the forefront in leading projects on Iran, countering threat finance, sanctions and nonproliferation.
