between the US fascist regime and the criminal Islamic regime of Iran,
has nothing to do
with the interests of the people!
These days, news of the death of Qasem Suleimani and his
companions by Trump’s order, and the missile attack on US military bases in
Iraq by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, have been the focus of most media
around the world, especially in the region. But while in the uprising of
November 2019 in Iran, when hundreds of young men and women were massacred by the
regime’s repressive forces, when more than 10,000 were arrested and imprisoned,
The world media, especially in the West and the U.S, have been mainly silent
and thus effectively supported the crimes of the Islamic Republic in this bloody
suppression of the people.
The intention of Trump, the great fascist, by
killing Suleimani, the little fascist, is to show the
bullying role of US imperialism and to declare that they don’t care about even
their international laws and regulations. On the one hand he warns Iran they
are ready for war. On the other hand, this killing, at the time when the
oppressed peoples’ protest in Iran and Iraq has reached its peak -which is a
danger alarm to the US and regional dictatorial regimes- serves to divert public
opinion and undermine these uprisings. At the same time, by killing Suleiman
and his gang, Trump intends to divert the public minds in the US, especially from
the impeachment matter and his shaking position, and prepare a better
opportunity for himself and the upcoming election.
The Islamic regime, whose legitimacy was
shattered by people's struggles especially during the uprising of November 2019,
used Suleimani’s killing scenario to change this
situation. All its propaganda machine worked together to shape the public
opinion and bring people to the funeral of one of the regime’s butchers in
Iran, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and.... The basis of the regime's propaganda
focused on ‘’Suleimani’s major role in the security of
the country’’ and that his death is ‘’a major blow to this security.’’ This
propaganda and the illusion about Suleimani’s role, caused
some people to attend the funeral. This same regime, which has imprisoned and
condemned many women for removing their Hijab in public places over the past
two years, tolerated the existence of women with no Hijab or "Bad-Hijab"
at this funeral. Because with this "widespread" presence of the
people in this show, the regime was supposed to represent its "stable"
position in Iran and in the region.
But what this Commander-in-Chief has done to
preserve the Islamic Republic's criminal system over the past twenty years, is
the creation of Islamic fundamentalist groups in the region in order to form
militias in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon to serve to stabilize the Islamic
regime in the region. This position is of great importance for them from
various angles. Such as Spreading Shiite Islam in the region in competition
with Salafist Islamists of Saudi Arabia, having the upper hand and superior
position to deal with the imperialists. But in recent months, Iran's position
has weakened sharply due to the struggles of the Iraqi and Lebanese people. The
regime's efforts and Suleimani's commute to both
countries were to repair this shaking situation.
Soleimani was supposed to
provide the militias in the region with the experiences of their brutal
suppression on various campaigns and uprisings in Iran - the latest of which on
November 2019 – to smash down the people’s struggle. He announced shamelessly
in Iraq that ‘’if it was up to us, we would be ending the demonstrations in 3
days’’! This means, to shoot and kill people and send tens of thousands to prisons.
Aims of the US Imperialism
in the Middle East:
The Middle East has always been of particular
importance to US imperialism. For the past century, by controlling the Middle
East and its energy resources, through all kinds of bloody repression, coups,
and so on, the US has tried to control the world. With their militarily
invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, one of the most heinous crimes
against humanity in world history took place. Hundreds of thousands of people
were killed and millions were displaced. The only crime for the people of Afghanistan
and Iraq was to be in one of the most strategically important areas of the
world. The US-based fascist regime intends to use various tactics in the
region, including the deliberate withdrawal of its troops from Syrian
Kurdistan, sending warships and bombers to the Persian Gulf
under the name of protecting the waters, political assassinations such as
killing Suleimani and ... to advance the new order -
that is, more exclusive control of the world itself. While killing Suleimani, is set to strengthen Trump's shaky position to
keep him at the top of the fascist pyramid in the United States.
The situation in the region is extremely
critical and any action could spread the flames of war not only in Iran but
throughout the Middle East. If any reactionary war takes place, it will be
against the masses of people in the Middle East and its main victims will be
the oppressed people, especially women and children. US imperialism is the
greatest enemy of humanity, the main cause of mass killing, not only in the Middle
East but throughout the world.
It is an undeniable fact, that it was the aggression and military occupation of the US imperialism and its leadership, with all the
brutal bombardment of the people and waging proxy wars that prepared the grounds
of the Middle East for the emergence of the extremely reactionary Islamic
The conflict between Islamic regime and US,
with its intensity and severity, has nothing to do with the interests of the
people in Iran, Iraq and so on. Any tendency toward either the Islamic regime
or US imperialists would mean the strengthening of both rotten reactionaries.
The precise and clear-cut demarcation against both of them and all the pro-Western
forces, is one of the clear duties of all forces, activists and organizations
that defend the oppressed and their interests.
The task of the revolutionary forces in the
present critical situation is to expose the aims and policies of the Islamic regime
and the fascist US imperialism, and organize the people to revolutionary
overthrow the Islamic regime and cut all imperialists’ hands (especially the US) off Iran and the
