Iranian Military Chief Vows to Defend North Korea from US

The Iranian commitment to stand with North Korea is another move in an escalating exchange of verbal hostilities - considered by many to be mostly posturing - and military maneuvers that North Korea, South Korea and the U.S. have engaged in over the past several months.

Iranian Armed Forces Deputy Chief Brig. Gen. Masoud Jazayeri warns the U.S. that Iran will defend North Korea

The deputy chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Masood Jazayeri announced that Iran will stand by North Korea and defend it in a war between the United States and North Korea.

Jazayeri made the statement on Friday, April 5.  He blamed increasing tensions in the Korean peninsula on “excessive demands by the United States,” which he said was “tightening the noose on North Korea.”  The Iranian military leader said that those aggressive activities on the part of the U.S. left the North Koreans with no option but to confront the “big Satan.”

“The nation and government of North Korea has always been subject to threat, despotism, and imperialism by the U.S, therefore they consider it their right to boost their own defensive power in order to inhibit their enemy,” said Jazayeri.  “The time is long past that the United States can bully other countries.”

And just to make sure Americans understand he means business, Jazayeri warned that “America and her allies will suffer countless thousands of victims” should Iran and North Korea be provoked into a war with the U.S.

The Iranian commitment to stand with North Korea is another move in an escalating exchange of verbal hostilities – considered by many to be mostly posturing – and military maneuvers that North Korea, South Korea and the U.S. have engaged in over the past several months.

The regime of Kim Jung Un has been issuing increasingly threatening announcements, including its boast that it has authorized the nation’s military to launch a nuclear attack on the United States. After reports that the regime had moved its second missile to the country’s east coast, South Korea deployed two warships with missile defense systems.

Early last week the United States announced that it would deploy its advanced ballistic missile defense system  in the Pacific in a direct response to increased threats from North Korea.

While most countries with a diplomatic presence in North Korea expressed dismay over the escalating tensions, the Islamic Republic of Iran expressed its support for North Korea.

North Korea and Iran have been on friendly terms since the Iranian Revolution in 1979.

In September of 2012, the two nations signed an agreement to cooperate on “science technology and education,” which many sophisticated observers understood to mean that North Korea will be – indeed already is – assisting Iran on its path to nuclear weaponization.

A 2011 United Nations report said Iran and North Korea are suspected of sharing ballistic missile technology, and both have been sanctioned by the UN Security Council for their nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

    I understand Jimbo Carter and Hillary will start a marathon travel set between te capitals of N Korea and Iran to act as human shields.

  2. IRAN THROUGH THE BACKDOOR? Are Iranians using North Korea as a backdoor plan for their own nuclear program? The Iranians didn’t carry out a nuclear test in Iran, but they may have done so in North Korea,” 'Iranian nuclear chief observed Korean nuke test':

    Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi was responsible for the development of a warhead "small enough to fit on to one of the ballistic missiles developed by Iran from North Korean prototypes," (JPost, 02/17/2013). North Korea’s Lesson: Nukes for Sale (NYT, Feb 12, 2013). N. Korea has plutonium to make 8 bombs (ABC Nyheter 02.04.2013).

    Ahmadinejad refers continuously to "the arrogant powers" When he mentions the "oppressing" and "bullying powers" he is speaking of USA and Israel. ”Our dear Imam (Khomeini) you stated that the arrogant powers of the world must be annihilated. The countdown of Americas sinister has begun.”.

    The message of our revolution is a global message.” God willing, Islam will conquer all of what? It will conquer all the mountain tops of the world.” ”The Iranian people today are owners of Nuclear technology. If they have not realized this by now, they will soon…but by then it will be too late.”.

    Ahmadinejad at July Rally in Mashhad: The Mahdi and Iran's Global Mission "The period when four or five countries considered themselves to be owners of the world is over. The era is an era of appearance of Imam Mahdi [the 12th Imam or Hidden Imam, who reappears in an apocalyptic battle before the End of Time].

    "We must prepare ourselves to rule the world and the only way to do that is to put forth views on the basis of the Expectation of Return [the return of the Mahdi]." (Iran Focus, Jan. 5, 2006). (What Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Saying, The Israel Project).

    'God willingly the global arrogant powers are at the end of their way. The US which is head of all arrogant powers will perish soon.’ "[Global] hegemony, today, is the last impediment to the monotheism front, and if we can overcome this hurdle, the monotheistic movement to achieve prosperity will be all downhill all the way," he underlined.

    President pinpointed that the colonial powers have entered the scene with a new mask and their aim is to rescue the US ailing economy and the Zionist regime. President noted that all nations should be alert and should know that the main path in the campaign against Global Arrogance is the struggle against domination of the US and the existence of the illegal Zionist entity.” (president.ir , June 2011).

    Khamenei Advisor: Syria ‘Golden Link in the Chain of Resistance’: Iran believes itself to be in an “Axis of Resistance” with Syria and Hezbollah against Israeli and American hegemony in the region.

    In regard to the Sunni-Shia relations, Velayati said that “the Islamic Republic of Iran also helps Sunni fighters.” Many analysts believe that the Middle East is currently becoming involved in a larger sectarian war which has pitted Iran, Iraq, Syria and Hezbollah on one side and Syrian Sunni rebels, Arab Persian Gulf countries and Turkey on the other.

    Velayati stressed that “today, one of the reasons the West is hostile to the Islamic Republic of Iran is because we support the Palestinians, who are majority Sunni.” He added that “the Americans have sent us messages to accept the Palestinian peace plan, and our problems with you will be solved” (Iranpulse, April 4, 2013).

    Anyone who think USA’s problems with Iran will be solved if Israel withdraws to ”Auschwitz borders”?

  3. NEVER AGAIN: Obama & Co think that the way to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat is to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – by forcing Israeli withdrawals.

    During WW II Europe handed over the Jews to the Nazis in fear of Germany's bombs, now in fear of Iran's nukes, they will force them to withdraw from Judea and Samaria and divide their land and Jerusalem.

    Strange to say, Ezekiel 38:10-13 state explicitly that the intention of Gog and his allies is to despoil Israel of their wealth and appropriate their land, as stated in Ezekiel 36:2,5 and Psalm Ch. 83. NEVER AGAIN.

    White House links Iran nukes to Palestinian state: Israel now faces a moment of truth – it can either acquiesce to international demands and in return have its most serious threats dealt with, or maintain the status quo and have those threats persist (Israel Today, May 04, 2009).

    Report: Obama leverages Iran to extract Israeli concessions (Aug 2, 2009, Israel Today).

    King Abdullah: "Solving the Palestinian problem is the key to reduce the Iranian nuclear threat: (King Abdullah: Jordan Was Better Off without Peace with Israel, INN).

    World Powers Express 'Deep Concern' Over Iran Nuclear Progress: Six world powers holding talks with Iran on its nuclear program said on Tuesday at a meeting of the UN atomic agency that they were "deeply concerned" by Tehran's recent atomic upgrades, AFP reports (INN, 3/6/2013).

    UN: Israel Must Withdraw From Judea, Samaria: The United Nations says Israel must withdraw all of its citizens from the regions of Judea and Samaria (INN).

    According to the World Tribune, Obama has demanded a timetable for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria. “Obama has made it clear to Netanyahu that his (recent) visit is not about photo-ops, but THE BUSINESS OF IRAN and a Palestinian state,” a source in the PM’s office told WT.

    Obama talked about forcing us to make pace…. Obama speech cheered on warm ties, heckled on Palestinians: Visiting US President Barack Obama, addressing Israel students in Jerusalem, said politicians don’t take risks unless urged by their people. His audience rose and cheered him when he said Israel has the right to exist and is not going anywhere.

    You are not alone, he said in Hebrew; America is Israel’s greatest friend. America will do what it must to prevent a nuclear Iran, he said. But shouts of protest were heard amid the applause when he called for peace and justice for the Palestinians and declared there would be no security for Israel without peace… (DEBKAfile).

    Obama in Ramallah: We will not give up on two states: After his talks in Ramallah Thursday with Palestinian leaders, US President Barack Obama reiterated his pledge not to give up on efforts to establish an independent Palestinian state alongside the state of Israel. It may take time, he said, but in the end, it will happen (DEBKAfile).

    US to deploy 14 extra interceptors against NKorean – not Iranian – missiles: The US will deploy 14 additional ground-based missile interceptors in Alaska and California following a North Korean threat of a preemptive missile strike against America.

    DEBKAfile: Although Obama admitted Thursday that Iran could achieve a nuclear weapon within a year, he last year dismantled the European segment of the US missile shield against Iran although it was part of the US defense system protecting Israel…

  4. QUOTE FROM THE NEWS VIDEO: "What they (NK) are lacking, and this is critical, IS THE ABILITY TO MAKE A NUCLEAR WEAPON SMALL ENOUGH TO BE PLACED A TOP A MISSILE and launched at an enemy. It's believed North Korea is still many years away from being able to do that."

    Are Iranians using North Korea as a backdoor plan for their own nuclear program? The Iranians didn’t carry out a nuclear test in Iran, but they may have done so in North Korea,”.

    'Iranian nuclear chief observed Korean nuke test': Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WARHEAD "SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT ON TO ONE OF THE BALLISTIC MISSILES DEVELOPED BY IRAN FROM NORTH KOREAN PROTOTYPES," (JPost, 02/17/2013).

  12. Dan TheMan says:

  13. Dan TheMan says:

  16. Lenteisa Hill says:

    I believe Iran will back them up because they hold the same interests…nuclear power…BUT they expect NK to strike first…the question is does he really have it in him to do it? They believe our country is weak right now from past military action and financial burdens…which is NOT THE CASE!!! If it does go down the U.S. will send a distinct message of we will destroy your entire country…missile destruction everywhere!!!

  17. The US' Fatal Mistake: USA CAUGHT OFF GUARD: North Korea may have nuclear missile. North Korea may be able to launch a missile with a nuclear warhead, according to US intelligence.

    North Korea capable of arming missile with nuclear warhead, according to the Pentagon:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/04/12/north-korea-capable-arming-missile-with-nuclear-warhead-according-to-pentagon/

    Does this mean that also Iran may be able to launch a missile with a nuclear warhead? Will Israel, suffering from the "Stockholm Syndrome," finally be able to break free from her hostage takers? – The USA, the nations of the world?
