Iran: Forty years of terrorism and conflict with the international community
Iran’s theocratic system is unable to meet the pressing economic, political, and cultural needs of its people. Therefore, it has ensured its survival through fomenting instability in and exporting terrorism and warmongering beyond its own borders.
According to the State Television, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei recently told commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on October 2, 2019,
“We must not be content to our region & ignore threats beyond our borders… An extraterritorial vision, for which the IRGC is responsible, is the depth of Iran’s strategy & more important than anything else.”
Similarly, in an interview with state-run TV, November 22, 2011, Ali Shamkhani, the Secretary of the regime’s Supreme National Security Council said,
“The reason we are in control today is because of having a clear strategy of fighting outside the borders.”
As the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ruhollah Khomeini was also the godfather of political Islam. His larger vision has also been a Shiite Islamic caliphate with Iran, Iraq, and Syria at its center. And that vision was taken up and actively pursued by Khamenei after he inherited the supreme leadership.
The Iranian regime’s inevitable need to exert its hegemony on the region, which is indispensable to its survival, is naturally in conflict with American interests in the Middle East and elsewhere. The slogans “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” are not ideological statements but an attempt to justify this costly regional intervention for its own forces.
