It took US Secretary of State John Kerry a lot of courage to ask Iran to help end the wars in Syria and Yemen. He has even urged Tehran to make peace with its Arab neighbors!At a press conference in Bahrain on Thursday, April 7, Kerry urged Tehran to “help us end the war in Yemen… help us end the war in Syria, not intensify, and help us to be able to change the dynamics of this region. ” Few points are worth mentioning as regards this latest political charade: * Iran never advocates war. It cannot help end the US - backed wars on Yemen and Syria either. Iran didn’t start the war on Yemen and certainly it hasn’t forced its allies to blockade the poorest country in the Middle East. The same is true about the unfortunate nation of Syria. For this to happen, the United States and its NATO - Arab partners should first stop weaponizing their proxy forces, including what they call “vetted moderate opposition”, which have already joined the ISIL and Al - Qaeda ranks. They should also let go of their regime - change fantasies and regional status quo nonsense. * Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Jordan, Turkey, Israel, and their rogue partners at the Pentagon and NATO have “admittedly” launched proxy wars against Iran to contain what they call the “Shia Crescent”. It was not Iran which triggered the sectarian warfare in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Secretary of State Kerry is barking at the wrong tree. * Iran, Russia and the Lebanese Hezbollah only came to the rescue of the Syrian people when they were asked to. Their Alliance is winning the Real War on Terror. They have liberated many towns and villages in Syria, which used to be strongholds for the lost souls of ISIL and Al - Qaeda. This has helped pave the way for the safe return of refugees. Now who said Iran doesn’t want to be a stabilizing force in the region? * It’s not that hard to change the dynamics of the region. The twin wars were an unnecessary condition of affairs, and could have been avoided if forbearance and wisdom had been practiced on the part of regime changers. In the words of Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, if the War Party and its NATO allies really intend to create stability, they should leave the Middle East and stop supporting the terrorist outfits. * While there is no evidence that Iran is a “destabilizing” force, there is a mountain of evidence that the US and its NATO - Arab partners are fuelling the inferno of terrorism and sectarianism across the region. They failed to “democratize” Yemen and Syria, made more than 10 million refugees, and destabilized the entire planet. All this and more translates into the fact that it is the War Party and cohorts that need to make tough choices, and not Iran. They must change course and prove to the world community that they really want to contribute to peace and stability. Iran can then help bring peace to all. But until then, Secretary of State John Kerry should take note: The US and cohorts can no more win the twin wars than they can win an earthquake or tsunami. Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise in these terrible times. On April 7, Kerry wasn’t honest with himself when he asked Iran to help end the US - backed wars on Yemen and Syria. Lest he forgets, it isn ' t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn ' t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.This article originally appeared on Farsnews. com
