This is what a dying empire looks like

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog These past weeks in Afghanistan have been what some would call a shit storm, in lack of better words. What is unfolding in front of our eyes is truly both a tragedy of great proportions and a spectacle of some sort I guess. After 20 years of occupation, Washington and its obedient dogs are not just retreating, they are fleeing in panic from

Terrified Washington resorts to piracy as it loses grip over West Asia

by Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog In what can only be called an act of piracy, the US government “seized” several pro-resistance media outlets in a coordinated attack this week. One of the outlets that were siezed was Presstv.com. Other web domains, including Palestine al-Youm, a Palestinian-directed broadcaster, Karbala TV – the official television of the Imam Hussein (PBUH) shrine in the holy Iraqi city of Karbala, Iraqi Afaq

Biden becomes the fourth successive President to bomb Iraqis: how far could this latest round of escalation go?

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog Another president, another act of aggression. For the past few decades, it’s almost like a mandatory rite of passage for US presidents to bomb Muslim countries. I don’t think many of us are surprised to see that current US President Joe Biden turned out to be no different to his predecessors, when Washington once more bombed Iraqis last week. Continuing the same policy

Washington’s ignorance is why the Empire will be kicked out of West Asia

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog A year has passed since US President Donald Trump, like the coward he is, ordered the murder of General Qassem Soleimani and PMU second in command Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. The Islamic Republic and the US were on the brink of all-out war as a result of the savage actions of the US President. Immediately after the act of terror, western journalists, think tanks

Trump’s final month in office could be his most dangerous one – update

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog Only one month remains of Donald Trump’s presidency. It seems inevitable that the Biden administration will take over the White House come January 20th. While the Trump administration has been very aggressive against the Islamic Republic during the past four years, it has nonetheless refrained from starting a full-fledged war. This could all change as he is about to leave office. A few

Why the Middle East “peace agreements” will fail to achieve their purpose

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog This week, a third Arab country has reportedly agreed to submit to Washington’s pressure to normalize relations with the Zionist state. This was very much expected and I’m sure it didn’t catch most observers by surprise. In the end, I expect most of the shameful Arab League to submit since it is known that most of them have had secret dealings with the

Iran and China terrify the Empire, but why?

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog The proposed 25-year deal between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the People’s Republic of China, titled “Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between I.R. Iran and P.R. China” has been heavily discussed recently. While not all details in the deal are clear, it has been described by Iranian and Chinese officials as specifying the roadmap of developing and deepening Tehran-Beijing ties in “Political”, “Executive Cooperation”,

Syria SITREP: Washington makes the final push for Regime Change in Syria – this too will fail

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog On Wednesday June 17th, the so called Caesar Act came into effect. The Caesar Act, named after a supposed Syrian Army defector who smuggled 50 000 pictures portraying torture and human rights abuses in Syrian prisons, aims to bring down the Syrian government through “draconian sanctions”. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the bans “the beginning of what will be a sustained

Why the Empire’s media arm must lie about Syria’s allies

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog In recent weeks, Western and Empire-aligned media outlets have been launching a misinformation offensive over an alleged agreement between Tehran and Moscow to remove Assad, apparently in an effort to “speed up the Syrian peace process”. An alternative version of this allegation insisted that Tehran was not part of the deal, rather it insisted that Moscow had had enough of “Assad’s incompetence and

It’s time for Ankara to accept the realities of the Syrian war before it’s too late (UPDATED!)

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog The two months long Syrian Army offensive in the Idlib and Aleppo provinces culminated in Aleppo’s complete liberation from the jihadist terrorists of Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and their friends. In a matter of weeks, the Syrian Army, backed by the Russian Air Force managed to liberate hundreds of towns and cities across the two provinces, including the important cities or Saraqib and

SITREP: Iraq’s million-man march against US occupation, and Pentagon admits to 34 injuries from Iran strike

by Aram Mirzaei for The Saker Blog Iraqis have rallied in Baghdad in massive numbers to call for an end to US military presence in the country following high-profile assassinations and airstrikes targeting anti-terror forces. Sayed Sadiq al-Hashemi, the director of the Iraqi Center for Studies, said more than 2.5 million took part in the demonstrations on Friday. Since the early hours on Friday, huge crowds of men, women and children of

“Death to the Islamic Republic” they chant now- and they call themselves Iranians

By Aram Mirzaei for The Saker Blog Nobody has escaped the news of the so called “popular demonstrations” in Iran during the recent days. Hundreds of thousands of articles, updates and tweets have been made on this matter, and many have talked about what the reasons behind these protests have been. Many videos show groups so called Iranians tearing down the pictures of Martyr Qassem Soleimani, while others chant “death

Iran slaps the US in the face after the murder of Martyr Soleimani as Trump backs down

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog Four days after the terrorist attack which killed Martyrs Soleimani and Al-Muhandis, the Islamic Republic retaliated with missile attacks on at least two military bases in Iraq where US troops were present. The retaliation was to be expected as popular demands and expectations were at an all-time high during the three day long funeral procession. So on Wednesday night, on January 8th, at

SITREP- Pentagon and the entirety of the US military are designated as terrorists while the Resistance Axis aims to deepen its cooperation

By Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog On Tuesday, Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) unanimously passed a motion designating the Pentagon and all subsidiaries terrorist after the US military assassinated Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, a senior Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander, on President Donald Trump’s direct order. All the 233 lawmakers present at an open session of the parliament on Tuesday unanimously adopted the triple-urgency motion, which amends an earlier law

The Empire strikes back – US incited unrest in Iraq, Lebanon and Iran is Washington’s revenge against the Islamic Republic

By Aram Mirzaei for The Saker Blog Since October, riots and unrest have wrecked havoc across Lebanon, Iraq and Iran. Iraq has suffered the worst as reports suggest over 300 people have been killed in the riots. In Lebanon, the US and its vassals have been busy hijacking the people’s grievances over the massive corruption among government officials. Followers of US puppets Samir Geagea and Saad Hariri have been blocking

Resistance report: Shameless Washington keeps occupying Syrian oilfields, while the Syrian Army enters several new areas to fend off Turkish aggression

by Aram Mirzaei for the Saker blog In my previous article on Syria, I expressed scepticism towards Washington’s so called “withdrawal” of troops from Syria. I doubted that Washington would fully withdraw from Syria, as Washington has a history of long occupations across the world, and the only way to get rid of US troops is to throw them out with force. It seems that I was correct in that

Clarifying the Islamic Republic’s stance on Moscow-Tehran relations

By Aram Mirzaei for The Saker Blog This article is partially written in response to The Saker’s analysis on the IRGC’s arrest of Russian journalist Iulia Iuzik. In his analysis, the Saker theorizes that the Ruasian journalist’s arrest could be due to one of two possible reasons: – The Israeli visa stamp on her passport really infuriated somebody at the IRGC and that person acted impulsively – This is the

Washington abandons its Kurdish proxies as Ankara and Damascus step in

By Aram Mirzaei Even though I have my doubts over whether Washington will actually withdraw from Syria fully, it seems as if their Kurdish proxies in northern Syria have been left to defend for themselves against the ongoing Turkish offensive. I can’t say I’m surprised since Washington has done this to their Kurdish “partners” many times before, yet the Kurdish leadership across Iraq and Syria have failed to learn from

Resistance report: Syrian Army takes the initiative in Idlib while Washington blames its failures on Iran again

By Aram Mirzaei for The Saker Blog August was an eventful month for the Syrian Army and its allies as the battle for northwestern Syria saw a breakthrough after months of static frontline movements. Just like in the previous 3 years, the month of August has been one accompanied by important victories for Damascus. The Syrian Army managed to break through the jihadist lines at the Khan Sheikhoun front and

Resistance report: New ceasefire stops Syrian Army offensive while Washington-Tehran row grows stranger by the day

by Aram Mizraei for The Saker Blog This week saw the Syrian Army re-commit to the previously undertaken Northwestern Syria offensive as they attacked and liberated several villages after a few weeks of relative calm across the battlefield. While terrorists still roam freely across Idlib and Hama, this offensive could be pivotal to the war effort as the aim would be to eliminate the jihadist presence in Latakia and Hama.
