Iranian regime is “stuck in a Quagmire” in Syria, Ex-official says

-

London, 15 Sep – A September 15 article by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) reports that Mehdi Khazali, son of an Ayatollah, described the Iranian regime’s involvement in the war in Syria as being “wrong” and as the “regime’s quagmire”.

In an interview on Sunday September 11, now available on the internet, Khazali, who has held various positions of responsibility in the Iranian regime, said the regime is now stuck in this quagmire. He also said that getting involved in the Syrian war was wrong.Khazali added, “if the Quds Force wasn’t asking for too much,

Bashar Asad would have been eventually overthrown by 2011 and a democratic regime would have taken his place… We were providing Syria with free oil for 30 years. Well, give free oil to anyone and he’ll become your friend.”

”Actually it seems that we’ve not had enough of the 8-year-old war with Iraq and now we’ve got involved in the war in Syria. This is wrong and we shouldn’t have intervened. I repeatedly warned… but a fool may throw a stone into a well which a hundred wise cannot pull out and this is our current situation… That is the mismanagement of Ghasem Soleimani which has given rise to ISIS and has led us to the current situation,” said Khazali.
