US wants to eliminate any country that does not do its bidding: Analyst

Listen here.

The United States wants to eliminate any country, or any government in the Middle East region, “that does not do Washington’s bidding,” says an American political analyst in Virginia.

A Saudi-led group based in Riyadh has imposed illegal sanctions on Islamic Revolution Guard Corps and Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah. The so-called Terrorist Financing Targeting Center, which is only two years old, imposed the sanctions on Wednesday. The group also includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

“All of this is part of an ongoing policy the United States has been carrying out which is ultimately aimed towards regime change,” Keith Preston told Press TV in an interview on Wednesday.

Preston believes the move against Iran is not particularly new and it a continuation of the failed maximum pressure policy against the Iranian nation.

“This is nothing that is particularly new. As we know the United States has certainly been escalating the sanctions that are imposed on Iran for some time now under the Donald Trump administration,” he said.

Preston noted that the six Persian Gulf Arab countries, namely, Saudi Arabia,  Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, who are participating in the sanctions, were aligned with the US.

He believes the US always uses military and economic pressure, as well as covert operations, to pursue a regime-change policy in any country opposing it.

“The United States wants to simply eliminate any country, or any government in the region, that does not do Washington’s bidding,” Preston noted.

“And, of course, Saudi Arabia and [Persian] Gulf nations are central part of that because they are so closely in alliance with the United States. It’s simply symbiotic relationship,” he added. “And, of course, they see Iran as the primary barrier to the Saudi expansionist efforts in the region.”

In the meantime, Washington’s Arab ally, the Al Saud regime itself, may be in the final stages of its life.

The secretary general of Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah said last month that the Saudi regime was on its last legs.

The chief of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement says the policies of current Saudi rulers accelerate the Al Saud regime’s demise.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said the Saudi rulers were expediting the regime’s demise through their cruel policies.

“Cruel measures over the past 100 years, and the systematic corruption in the regime, suppression of people, and totalitarianism of its rules” are expediting the Wahabi Takfir regime’s soon to come demise, according to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Wahhabism is the official religion of in Saudi Arabia. Wahhabism, according to Wikipedia, has been accused of being a source of global terrorism, inspiring the ideology of Daesh and for causing disunity in Muslim communities by labeling Muslims who disagreed with the Wahhabi definition of monotheism as apostates (Takfir) and justifying their killing.

  1. “The United States wants to eliminate any country, or any government in the Middle East region, “that does not do Washington’s bidding,” says an American political analyst in Virginia.”

    With all due respect, hasn’t that been pretty much the case for most of the last 70+ years? Sure, I exaggerate, but some of these fool “political analysts” seem to be so self-righteous.

    Keith Preston has apparently never been interested in discussing my famous Assassination Politics essay,

    But I’ll say this: If somebody asked me how to solve the problem of Iran, I’d suggest making a system to offer an anonymously-collectible reward, provable to the public, say $1 million or higher, to be paid to anyone who correctly “predicts” the date of death of any of a list of 1000 of the top Iranian government people. Possibly only if they don’t resign, as solace for the terminally-squeamish ones out there.

    The main problem with this idea is that if WE can target “their” leaders, THEY can target OUR leaders.

    Oh, wait, for a moment there, I thought that was going to be a PROBLEM, not a FEATURE.

  2. Question: Am I not allowed to EDIT my comment above?
    One major problem with software today (and maybe years ago too!) is that there seems to be a lack of TESTING. Does the software behave oddly, for instance? Is a user likely to be frustrated by odd omissions, as I am now being frustrated by my apparent inability to edit my comment above,
    I find it very hard to believe that whatever problem I am having now, NOBODY has ever had the same problem. Which makes me wonder why it hasn’t been fixed yet. Shouldn’t software writers make it EASY to report user problems?

  3. Hey Jim Bell. I know it sucks not being able to fix your own comments. Have you talked to Keith about becoming an editor at ATS? Not only would you be able to edit your own comments but you could publish your own material if you wanted, and have access to all kinds of cool shit. Maybe shoot Keith an email. If he says it’s okay I’ll get you all setup and plugged in.
