Trump administration pushes the US war on Iran into high gear

Interview by Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Press TV The Trump administration is pushing the US war on Iran into high gear with these new ramped-up sanctions that are more extreme than just about any sanctions anyone has ever applied anywhere. These sanctions are now stopping basic medical equipment from getting into Iran such as the Mepilex dressings from Sweden that are used to treat wounds, serious wounds. Apparently, Trump and his Zionist backers want Iranians to be wounded and not to heal. They want to inflict horrific pain on ordinary Iranian people. Why would they do that? Well,…

David Friedman is furthering the Kosher Nostra extremist Likudnik Israeli agenda

Press TV US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman is an organized crime figure who is furthering the Kosher Nostra extremist Likudnik Israeli agenda, an American political analyst has said. Kevin Barrett, an author, Veterans Today Editor and radio host with a Ph.D. in Islamic and Arabic Studies, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday. Breaking a long-standing tradition of ambassadors being politically neutral, Friedman said on Sunday that US policy toward Iran could take a turn for the worse from the perspective of Israel if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected the US president in November.…

Calling Trump an Anarchist Is an Insult to Anarchists

By Kevin Barrett Hossein Dehqan, who is a former defense minister and current advisor to the Supreme Leader of Iran, has spoken out to warn the United States that if it acts against Iran, it will receive a decisive response and that the Americans should not twist the lion’s tail. Mr. Dehqan said that Trump is “an anarchist. He’s ready to wreak havoc on his own society. And he’s an anarchist in every sense of the word.” Well, I often agree with people in Tehran about these things, but in this case, I have to differ with Mr. Hossein Dehqan,…

Israelis run US Treasury, use it to punish Israel’s enemies

Press TV Mike Pompeo is apparently still suffering from the delusions and hallucinations that he announced a month or so ago when he claimed that the US was going to be imposing unilateral multilateral sanctions against Iran. He said the sanctions would be unilateral because nobody else agreed with them, and the rest of the world rejected them, but they would then be multilateral because the rest of the world would have to impose them anyway. And that’s what’s happened now. Pompeo thought he could push these things through the Security Council to make his unilateral sanctions at least a…

Zionist stooge Pompeo spews insane nonsense against Iran

Kevin Barrett interviewed by Press TV Mike Pompeo has been leading the charge in the Trump administration to try to trigger the snapback provisions in the Iran nuclear deal, the JCPOA. And this has led to a chorus of derision and mockery from all over the world, not just from sources one would expect, like Foreign Minister Zarif from Iran, but from elsewhere as well even including from John Bolton, who was former (Pompeo’s) extremely hawkish anti-Iran colleague. Everybody is laughing at Pompeo at this point because Pompeo’s position is that even though the United States has left the JCPOA and…

Trump’s Iran policy disastrous, doomed to fail

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Press TV Wendy Sherman is a professor at Harvard University. She’s the former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs under Obama and worked on the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran. And now she is out with a new article in Foreign Policy magazine. Its headline is the “Total Destruction of US Foreign Policy under Trump.” Well, that’s an interesting title. I think US foreign policy has been heading in a lot of bad directions for a long time, but she makes some good points. She points out that the Trump administration hasn’t…

Wiser elements in Washington establishment get Iran’s message: Analyst

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Iran’s military has just held a bunch of war games in the Strait of Hormuz featuring a mock-up of US aircraft carrier, which of course would be the prime target if the US ever attacked Iran—its fleet in the Persian Gulf would face serious problems. I think Iran is sending a message that if Bibi Netanyahu and Donald Trump think that they need to start a big Middle East war to try to keep them out of prison and keep them in power, well, they need to think again, because that war might not…

US has long history of committing terrorism against civilian planes

Press TV By Kevin Barrett The US military is apparently lying about its harassment of an Iranian passenger plane over Syria. The US military spokespeople are saying that this apparent harassment by F15 warplanes didn’t really happen, they were just on a routine mission and it just sort of happened to go by 1000 feet away from the Iranian passenger plane for no particular reason, when in fact this was obviously deliberate harassment. So why would they be lying? And is this bad for their reputation? I suppose…although the reputation of the US government and its military for telling the…

‘Trump ordered by his Israeli masters to assassinate General Soleimani’

Kevin Barrett interviewed by Press TV US President Donald Trump was ordered by his Israeli masters to authorize the American military to assassinate Iran’s top General Qasem Soleimani, says political analyst Kevin Barrett. Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), were killed in US airstrikes at Baghdad’s international airport on January 3. A few days later, Iran responded to the assassination, striking the American airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq and another in Erbil, the capital of…

Discussing “War on Islamic Iran” with Press TV & Richie Allen

Listen HERE First five minutes: Today’s (July 7) Press TV monologue on US-Israeli economic warfare against Iran. Excerpt: “So, ultimately what we are facing is a situation in which, Israel—which greatly increased its power over the US after it was the key player in the September 11, 2001, coup d’etat featuring the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center—has realized that its whole plan, which was to radically reshape the region to its own benefit by taking out seven countries in five years, the seventh and most important being Iran, has run up into a dead end. They can’t stop…
