A source affiliated with the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has said that following the death of Osama Bin Laden, the next target of the United States will be the clerical regime in Iran.
The IRGC-affiliated Fars news agency published an analysis yesterday after the death of Bin Laden, saying, “Beyond the media hype and street celebrations, there is another question preoccupying informed and independent watchers, which is: what will happen next?”
“Who will be America’s next choice? There are many alternatives to choose aside from al-Qaeda and extremist Islamophobia. Among them China is a good example. … But China is a large economic partner of the US.”
It added, “The Iranian establishment may be a more appropriate choice; a country that has been the biggest enemy of the US over the past thirty years, and by achieving nuclear capability it is on the path to becoming a regional superpower.”
The article added, “Focusing on the Iran issue has many advantages for the US. … It can be the religious enemy for other Islamic countries. And the US has the ability to use the capabilities of these countries to confront the Iranian establishment.”
