Iran Protests
 
 

Revolutionary Guard General Mohammad Bagheri, Chief of Staff of the clerical regime’s Armed Forces, once again acknowledged that the criminal intervention and the massacre of defenceless people of Syria and Iraq was the clerical regime's security shield. In his message to mark the anniversary of the founding of the Revolutionary Guards, he said: "Iranian Revolutionary Guards … with the support and cooperation of Islamic Resistance in Syria and Iraq have set themselves as ‘the security shield’ of the Iranian people and the whole Islamic Ummah (nation). Bagheri stressed: “The Revolutionary Guards...with Khamenei’s guidance” has boasted "the deterrence power" and "the defense power" of the clerical regime to the world beyond “Iran’s geography”. He added: As Khomeini said, "If the IRGC did not exist, the country would not have existed” (State-run media April 23, 2017). By “the country”, Khomeini and Khamenei mean the religious fascism ruling Iran. Khamenei had said earlier if we did not stop the enemy in Syria "we had to stop them in Tehran, Fars, Isfahan and Khorasan" (State run news media Januray 6, 2017).

Open acknowledgment of the highest ranking Iranian military officials clearly shows that as long as this regime is in power, its intervention in the whole region including in Syria, Iraq, Yemen Lebanon and Bahrain will continue. This doubles the need to designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization and to evict the regime and the IRGC from the region.
