My exclusive interview with former CIA analyst Ray McGovern

My exclusive interview with former CIA analyst Ray McGovern

Iran Review - Kourosh Ziabari: Someone who has spent nearly three decades of his life in service of the world’s most sophisticated and intricate intelligence agency is perhaps in the best position to comment on some of the most important issues ahead of the U.S. foreign policy. As confirmed by tens of policy advisers and academicians, the United States sees the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Iran’s nuclear program as two of its most demanding and exigent foreign policy challenges. It is also facing the problem of legitimacy in the Muslim world as many people in such countries as Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf consider Washington’s foreign policy as aggressive and unproductive. The continued...

World Should Pressure Israel to Eliminate its Chemical Weapons

World Should Pressure Israel to Eliminate its Chemical Weapons

  Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: American author and political commentator Paul Gottinger believes that the United States has become stunningly isolated after it failed to build up international support for attacking Syria, and now the global public overwhelmingly oppose his hawkish rhetoric against Syria, even in such countries as France and the UK. "The Obama administration was almost completely isolated on its position towards Syria. The US population strongly opposed the attack, and even the US military personnel opposed the attack by three to one. When the British Parliament voted not to play their usual role as faithful servant to the US, it surprised the Obama administration," said Paul Gottinger in an exclusive...

CIA is Already Involved in a War on Syria: David Swanson

CIA is Already Involved in a War on Syria: David Swanson

  Kourosh Ziabari - Fars News Agency: Prominent American author David Swanson believes that the world nations should strongly stand up to protest at the US warmongering policies in the region and its illegal calls for war against Syria which is a violation of the UN Charter and Kellogg-Briand Pact that prevent the world countries from unilateral use of force against another sovereign state. David Swanson also believes that the United Nations should impose sanctions against the United States because it has violated the UN Charter by threatening a military strike against Syria. “I think the United Nations needs to speak up as clearly as it can against any assault on Syria and needs to propose sanctions on the United States...

West-led armed opposition in Syria will fail: Manuel Ochsenreiter

West-led armed opposition in Syria will fail: Manuel Ochsenreiter

Kourosh Ziabari- German journalist and magazine editor Manuel Ochsenreiter believes that the Western powers along with the regional countries are backing and financing terrorists and insurgents in Syria, because each of them have certain interests linked to the disintegration of the Syrian government and the removal from power of President Bashar Assad. He also says that these countries are supporting such dangerous groups as Al-Qaeda to destabilize Syria and fight the Syrian army at the expense of the lives of innocent Syrian citizens whose only crime is supporting their government. "These groups like Al-Qaeda, but also other armed militias that have infiltrated Syria during the course of the past year now fight the proxy war of...

Foreign support for the terrorists should be stopped: Syrian activist

Kourosh Ziabari - The U.S.-based Syrian activist believes that the foreign-backed terrorists in Syria are committing atrocities against the innocent civilians while they receive military and financial support from a certain number of countries such as the U.S., Britain, France, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. “The role of Israel and Israel’s backers such as the U.S., Britain, France, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, is very clear in this conflict. We know that this is part of a bigger plan for the so-called Middle East Road Map to divide the Middle East into smaller countries. Those who think this is a revolution are wrong,” said Elaine, who preferred not to disclose her full name since her computer and email accounts were targeted with 14...

Media war against Syria is part of a Zionist conspiracy

Media war against Syria is part of a Zionist conspiracy

  Kourosh Ziabari - Syrian writer and painter Anan Tello believes that that the media war against Syria had started long ago, even before the U.S. occupation of Iraq in 2003, and that different entities, including Israel are involved in this intensive propaganda campaign against the Syrian people and government. “The only solution which will put an end to violence in Syria is an international one. Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon must keep their borders under control. Regimes supporting armed groups in Syria must stop smuggling weaponry and explosives into Syria, quit funding the armed groups and stop sheltering terrorist groups,” she said in an interview with Tehran Times on Tuesday. Anan Tello is a Syrian writer, blogger and...

U.S. Human Rights Policy is Self-serving and Duplicitous

U.S. Human Rights Policy is Self-serving and Duplicitous

  Kourosh Ziabari - Political commentator and university professor George Katsiaficas believes that the wave of revolutionary uprising which has encompassed the Middle East and North Africa may further implicate the other regions of the world and has already shown its effects in countries such as Gabon, China and even the United States. "The courage of Iranians in 1979, their withstanding of ferocious repression by the Shah and his forces, was evident for people all over the world, and inspired Haitians and Filipinos to overthrow their dictators," says Katsiaficas. George Katsiaficas is a renowned university professor, sociologist, author and activist. He is a visiting American Professor of Humanities and Sociology at Chonnam...

Free Syrian Army targets civilians for supporting the government

Free Syrian Army targets civilians for supporting the government

  Kourosh Ziabari - Almost 18 months after the beginning of unrest and violence in Syria, the Syrian people are waiting for peace and tranquility to once again rule their homeland and their destroyed lives. The Syrian people are embattled in a war which a number of Western powers and regional states have launched against their country, and the only conceivable reason is their resistance against the expansionistic policies of Israel and NATO who want to bring Syria to its knees and turn it into a new ally for the United States in the Arab world. The Western mainstream media have tried to portray the unrest in Syria as a continuation of the Arab Spring and the popular revolutions that swept the Middle East since almost one year...

China will force peaceful solution to Syrian crisis on West

  Kourosh Ziabari - A German political pundit says China will use its soft power to find a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis and force it on the U.S., the UK, France, and Germany. “I am also rather confident that China will give the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and other important European governments economic incentives to find a peaceful resolution to the (Syrian) crisis,” Christof Lehmann said in an interview with the Tehran Times on Tuesday. “One could compare it with a soft power carrot and stick strategy where the policy of Turkey ultimately is dependent on decisions which are made in Europe and the USA,” he added. Lehmann went on to say that he is “very confident that a peaceful...
