Iran has no plans to send troops to aid Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces in the ongoing civil war there, an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday, rejecting media reports claiming Tehran was set to intervene directly in the fighting.
During his first news conference since winning Iran’s presidential election, Hasan Rowhani promised to improve relations with the West and be more forthcoming about his country’s nuclear program, although he maintained that it would not give up its nuclear rights.
Iran reportedly is to send 4,000 Revolutionary Guard soldiers to Syria to defend President Assad and to open up a new front in the Golan Heights region near Israel.
Pundits who insinuated the Iranian people would boycott the election have been proven wrong. Rohani called on the West to talk to the Iranian nation fairly and respect the Islamic Republic’s rights.

Iran’s deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs says “We will not allow the Syrian government to be overthrown. We strongly support the Syrian nation and government as well as the opposition that believes in a political resolution,” he added.
Flynt-LeverettKourosh Ziabari – If you regularly follow the headlines on the American and European radio stations, TV channels or newspapers, you come to believe that Iran’s nuclear program is the world’s most important, unsolvable and complicated problem.
As the FBI reels from what now appears to be revelations it was directly involved in the Boston Marathon bombings, a deluge of FBI “success” stories have been “serendipitously” splashed across Western headlines. Among them was an allegedly “foiled” terror attack in Canada, reported to be the work of terrorists supported by “Al-Qaeda operatives in Iran.” The Globe and Mail, in its report, “Canada joins U.S. in alleging al-Qaeda has operatives based in Iran,” states:
They target the civilian population for political purposes aimed at regime change and to influence certain policies of the government. "That is very close to the definition of terrorism - when you target a civilian population, an unarmed civilian population for political purposes."
Foreign Relations Committee of the US Senate votes in favor of resolution stipulating that US will support Israel in case it was forced to take military action against Iran
By coincidence two clashes over nuclear issues are hitting the headlines together. North Korea and Iran have both had sanctions imposed by foreign governments, and when they refuse to "behave properly" they are submitted to "isolation" and put in the corner until they are ready to say sorry and change their conduct. If not, corporal punishment will be administered, since they have been given fair warning by the enforcers that "all options are on the table".
An analyst says that Ayatollah Khamenei is of the opinion that Washington is not interested in ‘true negotiations’ with the Islamic Republic considering US history of animosity and anti-Iran sanctions. The comment comes as Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran will raze Tel Aviv to the ground if Israel launches a military strike against the Islamic Republic.
Will launching a catastrophic military offensive against the Islamic Republic of Iran be the defining moment of US President Obama’s two-term presidency? Against all common sense and uncommon wisdom, it looks increasingly possible that Barack Obama, the Democratic leader who once-upon-a-campaign seduced the world by pledging to “sit down and talk with America’s enemies,” will resort to armed conflict to stamp out Tehran’s nascent nuclear program.
The Oscar-winning blockbuster 'Argo' may have been bathing in gongs and glowing praise, but now it's getting some attention its makers probably don't want. Iran's apparently planning a lawsuit over the movie, which chronicles the storming of the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979 - calling it a distorted and unrealistic portrayal of their country.
Sanctions are not preventing Iran’s nuclear progress, the US Army commander in the Middle East told Congress on Tuesday, adding that he had prepared a military option. A simple “No, sir” was General James Mattis’s response when asked whether “the current diplomatic and economic efforts to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear capability” were working.
Iran has decided on 16 locations to build new nuclear power plants in a drive to boost the country’s electricity output over the next 15 years. Tehran also announced the discovery of substantial uranium deposits to fuel the country’s nuclear program.
“When we look at who is attacking Press TV, Hispan TV and other Iranian channels, when you try to find out exactly who is behind this, you realize that it is Israel which is behind this attack on Iranian media,” Hamid Reza Emadi said in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday.
The situation with Iran is completely absurd–unless there is a hidden motive. Iran poses no military threat to the United States. Iran has not attacked any other country for more than 300 years. It has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty. It allows inspectors. In 2007, 16 US intel agencies converged in the opinion that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons–an opinion they reaffirmed in 2011. The Supreme Leader of Iran has declared, “Nuclear energy for all; nuclear weapons for none”, which is the policy of the nation. Whatever the motive for targeting Iran, it is not the development of nukes.
The legal conclusion appears inescapable. Based upon the above definition taken from its own laws, by imposing its Zionist-devised sanctions against Iran, the United States is committing an act of international pharmaceutical terrorism. But Manoucher’s parents already know this, as do the 8,000 Iranians with similar blood diseases, as well as the millions of Iranians suffering from kidney diseases, cancers, multiple sclerosis and other life-threatening diseases."
US-led sanctions against Iran are the main reason behind the shortage of life-saving medical supplies and medicines in the country, a new report says. The report published by the US-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars interviewed American and European pharmaceutical firms exporting medicines to Iran.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has rejected any talks with the United States under pressure and threats.
Commentary By Dr. David Duke –I hope you already understand and oppose the Zio Media hate directed against the Palestinian people and against the Iranian people. Iran for instance has signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and allows inspections while Israel has not signed the NPT, has no inspections, and has huge stockpiles of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.
Thus the world (and Americans in particular) is having to come to terms with the nasty evidence that, in order to further Zionist interests by initiating a general war against Islam, the CIA and Mossad were heavily involved in the murder of three thousand Americans. The noted analyst Kevin Barrett, has summed up this situation by saying, “Israel has reached the end of its shelf-life.” He continued, “The US is going broke and sacrificing thousands of lives in wars for Israel - wars that damage, rather than aid, US strategic interests.”

The war in Syria, portrayed by a broad stratum of so-called liberals and “lefts” as a crisis demanding “humanitarian” intervention, has emerged with ever-greater clarity as an exercise in ruthless and brutal conquest. Washington and all of the major powers have joined in fomenting a bloody sectarian civil war and preparing ever-more direct military intervention with the aim of toppling the regime of Bashar al-Assad and preparing a far greater war against its ally, Iran.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has welcomed the United Nations General Assembly’s resolution condemning the US sanctions against Cuba. “We believe that the era of unilateral cruel and illegal measures against nations has come to an end,” Mehmanparast said on Thursday.
The Obama administration has engaged in a staggering military build-up in the Persian Gulf and at U.S. and allied bases around Iran (not to speak of in the air over that country and in cyberspace). Massive as it is, however, it hasn’t gotten much coverage lately. Perhaps, after all the alarms and warnings about possible Israeli or U.S. military strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities this election season, it’s become so much the norm that it doesn’t even seem like news anymore. Still, two recent stories should jog our memories.
The British-based Guardian newspaper reported Thursday that American diplomats have been lobbying Britain for the use of its military bases on Cyprus as well as US bases on the British territories of Ascension Island in the Atlantic and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for war on Iran.
Once again emphasizing there is no fundamental difference between Obama and Romney when it comes to attacking Iran, the American Jewish Committee has published the answers to a questionnaire sent to the candidates. From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency website: “I am prepared to use all elements of American power” to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, Obama said in the questionnaires released Oct. 18 by the AJC, “including a political effort to further isolate Iran, a diplomatic effort to sustain our coalition, an economic effort that has imposed crippling sanctions, and a military effort to be prepared for any contingency.”
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov is due to visit Tehran later this week to confer with Iranian officials on the latest regional developments, specially the crisis in Syria. Bogdanov's visit to Tehran will take place at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian, who visited Moscow on August 5 to consult with Russian officials on the developments in Syria. Iran and Russia are two strong neighboring countries which enjoy a special position in the international arena and have constant and continued consultations on key regional and global issues.
The White House dismissed reports a deal had been reached for one-on-one nuclear talks with Iran but said it was still working on a "diplomatic solution".
Even as the Obama administration continues the American military build-up in preparation for attacking Iran, the criminal character of its foreign policy is exposed by the social devastation being wrought by the sanctions regime imposed on the country. The US and its allies are already waging an economic war on Iran that is producing hyperinflation, rapidly rising unemployment and immense hardship for millions of working people.
He called to tell me that he is sending his family back to the US immediately due to what he is seeing happen within the last week and what he is being told by his military contacts in both the Israel and US military. He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel. What he called a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway
Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi. (File photo) The so-called "red line" is the point at which Israel says Iran will have reached breakout nuclear weapons capacity and the perceived point at which Israel—with or potentially without US support—would take military action against Iran. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said on Saturday that Israel long ago crossed the "red line" and remains the only country in the Middle East with a nuclear weapons arsenal.
If you happened to catch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Meet the Press this past Sunday, you may have thought you were watching a rerun from ten years ago. Bibi's assertions contradict the very clear assessments of U.S. and Israeli intelligence. They agree that Iran has not made an actual decision to build a nuclear weapon and the U.S. intelligence community's assessment from 2007 still stands--Iran does not have an active nuclear weapons program and is far from "racing" to develop a nuclear bomb.
Persian Gulf States Are Telling Their Citizens To Leave Lebanon 'Immediately' As Syrian War Spills Over. An armada of U.S. and British naval power is amassing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s covert nuclear weapons program. Warships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.
Former Armed Forces Minister Sir Nick Harvey claimed he was sacked to avoid a damaging Coalition split over a pre-emptive strike on Iran.
