Hezbollah sees U.S. war on Iran as unlikely: report

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Iran-backed Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah believes a U.S. war on Iran is unlikely and U.S. President Donald Trump would not be able to control the results of a conflict that could engulf the region.

 

Sheikh Naim Qassem, in an interview with Lebanon’s al-Joumhouria newspaper, said such a war would be fought on many fronts, not just one, meaning losses would be countless.

 

“At the regional level, we see as unlikely an American war against Iran for many reasons, the most important of them being firstly that Iran is a strong state with important defensive capabilities,” Qassem said.

 

Trump “does not benefit from a war that he can start but whose results he cannot control and which might begin with Iran but may be accompanied by the region being set on fire”, he said.

 

Hezbollah is a heavily armed group founded by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in 1982 that has fought more recently in regional conflicts including Syria and Iraq as part of a Tehran-backed alliance.

 

Qassem noted what he described as “the great accomplishments” of the alliance led by Iran over the last two decades in “Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere”.

 

The United States views Hezbollah as a terrorist group.

 

On Wednesday, Trump said any war between Iran and the United States would be swift, but reiterated his desire to avoid a military confrontation even while blasting Tehran’s leaders.

 

The United States has imposed crippling financial sanctions against Iran since last year when Trump withdrew from a 2015 deal between Tehran and world powers under which Iran curbed its nuclear program.

 

Tension has escalated sharply since last month when the Trump administration tightened its sanctions noose, ordering all countries to halt purchases of Iranian oil.

Okay, from the above article in the Daily Telegraph, Jeremy Hunt has said "The US is our closest ally, we talk to them the whole time, we consider any requests that they say carefully, but I cannot envisage any situation where they request or we agree to any moves to go to war. "

So, Washington, if you fight a war against Iran, Britain will not be part of it. And without Britain alongside you, you cannot fight any war.

Five nations won World War Two. Britain, France, America, Russia and China. These five are the big boys at the United Nations, they control the United Nations. America is just one of the Big Five, America on it's own has no mandate, can do nothing. Preventing a war between America and Iran makes planet earth a far safer place.

In bald-faced lying, I'd say he could nearly give Trump a run for his money, any day.

Washington still has memory of the disaster back in 2003, when it invaded Iraq.

There's a bunch of war-mongers in the White House right now. They're trying to push for a war with Iran. Let's hope war against Iran will never happen.


If you’re ever in Iran as I’ve been and when you see a dead body hanging from a crane in downtown Tehran your opinion might change. And I’ve been to Iraq have you? It was not necessarily what you think just from watching the news. People say education is the biggest problem in that part of the world well it’s a big damn problem for some western people as well. After being in Iraq and Afghanistan and other war zones myself I get really sick of the armchair quarterbacks sometimes they’re almost comical listening and reading what they say

It's not like the Iranians are keeping in check the aspirations of Saudi Arabia whose de facto leader is clearly a psychopath.
