According to information from Kuwait, America gave a "green light" to the removal of the most influential general of Iran.
Judging by the latest news from Tehran, neither Syrian nor Ukrainian scenarios of today's Persia are threatening. The authorities quickly stop the protests that suddenly flared up in many cities of Iran at the end of 2017, calling them pro-American.
The fact that behind the demonstrations of protest and even pogroms in the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) are in particular the United States is the active and coordinated support of Washington for the local opposition. The White House has already stated that in the very near future it will allocate $ 1 billion for Iran's "fighters for freedom", and will also impose sanctions against the leadership of this country.
At the same time, experts agree that under current conditions, contrary to Washington's hopes, the rule of law in the IRI will soon be restored in full. "The situation could not be shaken. If the administration of the United States was delighted with this [protests], it is too early, "said political scientist Orientalist Karine Gevorgyan.
Against this background, an article in the newspaper Kuwait al-Jaridah that America gave the "green light" to Israel for the organization of the murder of Kassem Suleymani, the legendary general who heads the special forces of Al-Quds in the IRGC (Islamic Revolution Guards Corps ) and subordinate directly to Iranian President Ali Khamenei.
It's no secret that Kasem coordinates military activities between the Islamic Republic of Iran, Syria, Iraq, Hezbollah and Hamas. He is called the most powerful security official in his country and even one of the saviors of the Syrian leader Bashar Assad. Let us also note that this person is a national hero in Iran, about which even patriotic films are removed.
So, Kuwait al-Jarida published an article stating that a secret report had come into her hands, which said that America had finally given Israel's right to Suleymani's political assassination. "At last" means that three years ago, under the direct instruction of then-US President Barack Obama, the CIA, through its channels, warned the Israeli intelligence service Mossad about the impossibility of a special operation to destroy the commander of Al-Quds, who was considered a key figure in providing the so-called nuclear a deal severely criticized by Israel.
Now, under President Donald Trampe, on this issue the contradictions between Washington and Tel Aviv have been overcome in full, Kuwait al-Jarida reports. Moreover, in the joint American-Israeli report, which allegedly fell into the hands of Kuwaiti journalists, it is said: "The murder of Sulejmani will serve the interests of both countries."
Meanwhile, the consequences of this step, if it is successful, are easily calculated. First, the general Shiite front in the Middle East will be weakened, which is very dangerous for the government of Bashar Assad. Although they say that irreplaceable people do not exist, however, Suleymani is indeed a clever, authoritative and charismatic head of the friendly intelligence service of Damascus. The second will be very difficult to find.
Secondly, the positions of pro-American movements inside Iran will strengthen. The death of the general, without any doubt, will give odds and the time for the opposition to advance its agenda.
Thirdly, the spiral of violence that has been spiraling in recent days inside Iranian society can ultimately undermine the ability of an Islamic state to control law and order on its own territory. There will be dangerous chaos in Iran. What, in fact, the United States and Israel are seeking.
It is clear that in this case, Kuwait, which maintains close economic ties with Iran, will also find itself in a difficult situation. It should be noted that the newspaper Kuwait al-Jarida writes that the source of its information is a high-ranking Israeli official who does not agree with the policy of his Cabinet. And in fact - in the Jewish establishment there are people who welcomed the nuclear deal and who believe that it would be more correct to agree with Tehran.
You can, of course, call this a newspaper ploy, but in 2015 in Israel there was a scandal connected with disputes inside the government just around this topic. Then Kuwait al-Jarida also published information about the meeting of Israeli ministers. So detailed that only one of the participants in the meeting could actually share them.
Interestingly: the Israeli media immediately picked up the news about the "green light" for the start of the operation to physically eliminate Sulejmani. While official Tel Aviv and the White House chose not to react at all to the publication of Kuwait Al-Jarida. It seems that the CIA and the Mossad were not against the leakage of information.
In connection with the publication of "Kuwait al-Jarida" about a possible attempt on Suleymani, I remember the removal in 2008 of Imad Mughni, the head of the special services of the Lebanese organization Hezbollah. Then, too, the Western media in advance disseminated information about the planned operation against Mughnia. As if someone specifically announced a political assassination.
Immediately after Mughniya's death, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert stated: "Israel rejects the attempts of terrorist groups to attribute to him any involvement in this incident. We have nothing more to add. " And Sean McCormack, an official spokesman for the US State Department, put it less vaguely: "The world has become better without this man. He was a cold-blooded killer, a terrorist responsible for innumerable innocent deaths. "
A little later, the details of the attempt were revealed. Like, the directional charge was activated by the image recognition system. In short: beforehand, hiding such devices in the places where a victim may be present, it remains only to wait for the person to be nearby. Then everything happens automatically.
In other words, if the previously announced "Mossad" and the CIA political assassination will be brought to a logical end, and with the help of innovative special means, then America will have a new mechanism of pressure on unwanted political leaders of foreign countries.
Of course, in any case Tel Aviv will traditionally deny its participation in the operation. Like, this is internal disassembly in the Arab world. And Washington, through the spokesman of the official representative of the State Department, will say something like: "There Suleimani and the road." However, the message will be clear to all. Both opponents and allies.
It should be noted that the Charter of the United Nations explicitly prohibits the threat or use of force by one state against another. Including - and against foreign citizens.
True, there are two exceptions. The first is when the consent of the "accepted" state is given. And the second - when it comes to self-defense or imminent danger. Even if the authorities of the country are against or can not give consent because of special circumstances.
Undoubtedly, the same article of the UN refers to the legality of a "target strike" in accordance with international humanitarian law, including proportionality and military necessity. At the same time, "actions regarding threats to peace, violations of peace and acts of aggression" are considered within the framework of Chapter VII (articles 39-50). Where in black and white it is said that the threat or aggression must be explicit and common.
In other words, such a practice of eliminating unwanted foreign persons raises complex questions about the legal basis for its application. This is exactly the case when it is appropriate Russian proverb "The law - that the shaft. Wherever you turn - there it was. "
Consequently, any head of state can be targeted by the CIA if it is deemed necessary by the United States. And - only on the sole basis that this man, as they are considered overseas, hypothetically dangerous for America.
Then the question: loudly and publicly calling the Kremlin "enemy No. 1" for the United States, why not consider the White House and our president as an object for elimination? Vladimir Putin is certainly much more powerful than General Suleymani.
Alexander III, if he lived in our days, would probably say: "Russia has only three loyal ally: the army, the fleet and the FSB."
