TEHRAN (Press Shia) – An American author and researcher said Monday’s retaliatory missile and drone attacks on terrorists’ positions in Syria were carried out by the IRGC to defend the Iranian population and convey a message to those funding terror groups in the region.

“Once Iranian officials determined the immediate culprits, they were placed into a position where they must retaliate or relegate its population to constant fear of the next attack,” Walt Peretto told the Press Shia News Agency.

“Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, an adviser to the UAE government Tweeted, ‘Attacks of this kind will increase during the next phase,’ So the IRGC retaliated,” he added.

Walt Peretto is an American writer, researcher, analyst, and sociopolitical psychologist. He is a regular contributor to Press TV and he writes for several online news magazines. He is also working on a book that will introduce the groundwork for sociopolitical psychology which is the study of the behaviors behind social systems and their interactions.

The full text of the interview is as follows:

Press Shia: As you know, over 20 people were killed and dozens of others injured after terrorists opened fire at a military parade in Iran’s southwestern city of Ahvaz last week. What is your take on the attack?

Peretto: The initial reaction by the Iranian leadership to this tragedy includes accusations against Saudi Arabia and their allies on the Arabian Peninsula, as well as the United States and Israel. If foreign governments are behind this terror attack, the nations that Tehran accused would be the most likely suspects based on their motivations and open hostility toward Iran. However, subsequent investigation has led directly to an Arab separatist group operating in the Khuzestan province called al-Ahvaziya. There have also been reports that Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) claimed responsibility. ISIL consists of Western Bloc trained mercenaries paid to destabilize the region—yet they are portrayed by the Western mainstream media as an anti-Western religious fundamentalist terrorist group. If ISIL is ever proven to be the guilty party—that should prove Western Bloc involvement. The Western Bloc is an alliance of nations led by the United States, Israel, and the United Kingdom and includes the European Union, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and others. This alliance fights for a one world government, a single global economic system, and a single one world religion; with global totalitarian control in the hands of a small psychopathic elite. Saudi Arabia, the United States, and Israel have all denied any involvement in the Ahvaz attack. The focus at this point should be to determine if al-Ahvaziya, who have been linked to the Saudis, are indeed the guilty party or if this attack has any other foreign impetus.

Press Shia: According to media reports, the al-Ahvaziya terror group, whose recruits are believed to be scattered in several European countries, including in the Netherlands and Denmark, claimed responsibility for the attack in Ahvaz. The terror outfit, which is backed by Saudi Arabia, has a record of carrying out sabotage acts in Iran’s Khuzestan province, which encompasses Ahvaz and some other Arab-dominated towns. How do you see the role of Riyadh in the attack?

Peretto: Two of the three most powerful nations in the Western Bloc, the United States and Israel, plus Saudi Arabia deny any involvement. It looks at this time that al-Ahvaziya, with their ties to the Saudis, were directly behind the attack. While al-Ahvaziya and ISIL have both claimed responsibility, an adviser to the government of the United Arab Emirates has stated that this attack is not terrorism, but characterized it as a war that has now spread within Iran’s borders. This opens up the possibility of UAE involvement. It is in the interest of the Western Bloc to attribute such terrorist acts to Arab separatists, rather than a powerful alliance of globalists. However, Al-Ahvaziya’s involvement in this bloody attack does not bode well for any plausible deniability by Saudi Arabia in particular, or the Western Bloc in general. Determining if Saudi Arabia was involved will be up to Iranian investigators.

Press Shia: Following the attack, Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, an adviser to the Abu Dhabi government, justified the attack on Twitter, claiming that it was not a terrorist attack and that “moving the battle to the Iranian side is a declared option”. “Attacks of this kind will increase during the next phase,” he said. What do you think?

Peretto: Assuming that Abdulla is truly reflecting the attitude and policies of the UAE—this would bolster the case that the Western Bloc is behind the attack. To help find the truth, we must analyze the likely motivations behind the possibility of UAE involvement. The Emirates are allied with the Saudis who are allied with the US and Israel, along with the European Union and many other nations. Together they form an alliance led by a pathological elite who seek a one world system of governance at all cost. Iran is one of the last holdouts to such a system and therefore the West believes that they must be destabilized as a prelude to regime change. The plan is to install a pro-Western Bloc puppet as we saw in 1953 when a CIA instigated coup that brought down democratically elected Iranian Prime Minister Mosaddegh. Then Iran can join the growing number of national governments willing to give up their sovereignty in the name of a one world system with complete dominance and control over a sharply depopulated humanity whose only purpose is to serve this elite. At least this is the plan. Since the false flag attacks of September 11, 2001—Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Sudan have fallen to the control of the Western Bloc. Today, Syria and Yemen are fighting for survival while Iran is the next target for military intervention. The Western Bloc is openly vocal about their desire for war—the question is whether the recent attack in Ahvaz is, in fact, a provocation by the West or a result of an isolated group of Arab nationalists. In my opinion, the Saudis and the Emirates are likely involved in the attack.  

Press Shia: Reports suggest that US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as well as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman were behind the attacks. Do you believe so?

Peretto: If the Western Bloc is behind the attacks, then John Bolton is assuredly involved. Bolton and fellow 9/11 collaborator Rudy Giuliani have been belligerently outspoken about their venomous desire for regime change in Iran. Bolton is portrayed in the ‘liberal’ US mainstream media as a war-hawk and rightly so, but he is much more than that—he is a veteran criminal and signatory to a document published in 1997 called ‘The Project for the New American Century,’ that called for an aggressive US foreign policy that would be facilitated by a “catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”  In 2001 the signatories got their new Pearl Harbor when 3,000 people were murdered in a false flag event dubbed 9/11 that they helped perpetrate and then blamed it on Muslim fundamentalists. Subsequent independent investigations have proven that the official government narratives are not only be false—but physically impossible. To answer the question as to whether Bolton, Secretary Pompeo, and Crown Prince bin Salman were behind the recent attack in Ahvaz—I haven’t seen or heard of any solid evidence that any of them were involved—but I can say for sure that all three are on the same team and share the same psychopathic dystopic vision for the world. That vision includes a destabilized Iran and regime change, and absorption into a burgeoning one world system led by a pathological elite with a small mind-controlled slave class to service them. When George Orwell wrote ‘1984’ – he didn’t elaborate on how such a dystopia was formed. The world is now in the midst of such a formation, and only mass awareness and a keen knowledge of the psychopathologies of the globalists can stop it. 

Press Shia: Early on Monday, IRGC launched a retaliatory attack against terrorists’ positions in the eastern Euphrates in Syria in response to the Ahvaz attack. Scores of militants were killed. What do you think?

Peretto: After the Ahvaz attack, Iranian investigators went to work to identify, to the best of their ability, the immediate perpetrators and any entities who may have supported them. They must have concluded that Daesh positions in Eastern Syria were behind the al-Ahvaziya terrorist attack. If Daesh is the next level after al-Ahvaziya—then it’s safe to assume that the highest levels of this operation reaches into the foreign policies and intelligence apparatus of the Western Bloc. Daesh was formed by the West to destabilize Syria, Iraq, and eventually Iran. Once Iranian officials determined the immediate culprits, they were placed into a position where they must retaliate or relegate its population to constant fear of the next attack. Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, an adviser to the UAE government Tweeted, “Attacks of this kind will increase during the next phase,” So the IRGC retaliated.

Conclusion: The West is testing Tehran’s resolve and trying to slowly lure Iran into an escalated conflict. Yet, the situation will only go tit-for-tat for so long—at some point the West will likely manufacture some bit of ‘evidence’ against Iran or orchestrate a false flag scenario in order to indict Iran in some manner as an excuse to commence surgical strikes and eventually an all-out invasion, until there is regime change. This has been the modus operandi of the West for decades. The best resistance to these crimes is to shed as much light as on the situation as possible so the world knows what to expect next from the West. Worldwide awareness of the means and motives of the West and the psychopathologies behind them can potentially delegitimize their attempts to destabilize, invade, change regimes, and absorb Syria, Yemen, and Iran into the one world system that Western leaders crave so much. In my opinion, Iran should disseminate this grand scheme to all who are concerned about the state of the Middle East, the world at large, truth, and the future of humanity.
