Iran deploys forces in Iraq to fight Sunni militants

Faced with the threat of Sunni extremists eclipsing the power of Shiite-dominated Iraq, Iran sprang into action to aid its besieged Arab ally and deployed Revolutionary Guards units to Iraq, according to Iranian security sources.

At least three battalions of the Quds Forces, the elite overseas branch of the Guards, were dispatched to aid in the battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, an offshoot of al Qaeda rapidly gaining territory across Iraq, they said.

One Guards unit that was already in Iraq fought alongside the Iraqi army, offering guerrilla warfare advice and tactics and helped reclaim most of the city of Tikrit on Thursday.

Two Guards’ units, dispatched from Iran’s western border provinces on Wednesday, were tasked with protecting Baghdad and the holy Shiite cities of Karbala and Najaf, these security sources said.

General Qasem Sulaimani, the commander of the Quds Forces and one of the region’s most powerful military figures, traveled to Baghdad this week to help manage the swelling crisis, said a member of the Revolutionary Guards, or IRGC.

Qassimm al-Araji, an Iraqi Shiite lawmaker who heads the Badr Brigade bloc in parliament, posted a picture with Mr. Sulaimani holding hands in a room in Baghdad on his social-networking site with the caption, “Haj Qasem is here,” reported Iranian news sites affiliated with the IRGC on Wednesday. “Haj Qasem” is Mr. Sulaimani’s nom de guerre.

The rampant presence of an al Qaeda-affiliated group gaining support and territory presents Iranwith the biggest security and strategic challenge it has faced since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Iran has invested considerable financial, political and military resources over the past decade to ensure that Iraq emerged from the grip of Americans as a key Arab ally of the Islamic Republic and a strong Shiite-dominated state. The so-called Shiite crescent—stretching from Iran to Iraq, Lebanon and Syria—was forged largely as a result of this effort.

Syria’s conflict also turned Iraq into an important operational base for Iran to aid Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Shiite militia trained by Iran, weapons and cash flowed from Iran to Syria via roads and airports in Iraq.

“Iraq is viewed as a vital priority in Iran’s foreign policy in the region and they go to any length to protect this interest,” said Roozbeh Miribrahimi, an independent Iran expert based in New York.

Iran has also positioned troops on full alert along its border with Iraq and has given clearance to its air force to bomb ISIS rebel forces if they come within 100 kilometers, or 62 miles, from Iran’s border, according to an Iranian army general.

The two IRGC battalions that moved to Iraq on Wednesday were shifted from the Iranian border provinces of Urumieh and Lorestan, the Iranian security officials said.

Revolutionary Guards units that serve in Iran’s border provinces are the most experienced fighters in guerrilla warfare because of separatist ethnic uprisings in those regions. IRGC commanders dispatched to Syria also often hail from those provinces.

In addition, it was considering the transfer to Iraq of Shiite volunteer troops in Syria, if the initial deployments fail to turn the tide of battle in favor of Mr. Maliki’s government.

At stake for Iran in the current tumult in Iraq isn’t only the survival of a Shiite political ally in Baghdad, but the safety of Karbala and Najaf, which along with Mecca and Medina are considered sacred to Shiites world-wide.

An ISIS spokesman, Abu Mohamad al-Adnani, urged the group’s Sunni fighters to march toward the “filth-ridden” Karbala and “the city of polytheism” Najaf, where they would “settle their differences” with Mr. Maliki.

That coarsely worded threat further vindicates Iran’s view that the fight unfolding in Iraq is an existential sectarian battle between the two rivaling sects of Islam-Sunni and Shiite—and by default a proxy battle between their patrons Saudi Arabia and Iran.

“Until now we haven’t received any requests for help from Iraq. Iraq’s army is certainly capable in handling this,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afgham said Wednesday.

Iran’s President Hasa Rouhani cut short a religious celebration on Thursday and said he had to attend an emergency meeting of the country’s National Security Council about events in Iraq.

“We, as the Islamic Republic of Iran, won’t tolerate this violence and terrorism…. We will fight and battle violence and extremism and terrorism in the region and the world,” he said in a speech.

ISIS’s rapid territorial gains in the past few days appeared to have caught Iranian officials by surprise and opened a debate within the regime over whether Iran should publicly enter the battle, citing the country’s strategic interest and ideological responsibility. Iranian officials also privately expressed concern about whether Mr. Maliki was capable of handling the turmoil.

Iran’s chief of police, Esmail Ahmadi-Moghaddam said the National Security Council would consider intervening in Iraq to “protect Shiite shrines and cities,” according to Iranian media.

Public opinion in Iran and among Shiites among the region appears to support a strong intervention from Iran and its Shiite allies such as Hezbollah to defeat the growing threat of al Qaeda’s resurgence in the region. This is in contrast to Syria’s war, where opinion is sharply divided on whether or not to support the regime or the opposition.

In chat rooms and social media many Iranians have expressed fear that sectarian conflict could spill over to Iran and claimed they are willing to volunteer for fighting in Iraq.

“I am proud to go fight alongside General Sulaimani [commander of Quds Forces]. Even if you hate the Islamic Republic’s regime, you can’t fathom an alternative like al Qaeda,” said Saber, a 25-year-old member of Iran’s Basij militia.

In the short-term, analysts say that the outcome of the crisis in Iraq will only strengthen and increase the influence of Iran and the Revolutionary Guards.

“The more insecure and isolated Maliki becomes, the more he will need Iran. The growth of ISIS presents a serious threat to Iran. So it would not be surprising to see the Guards become more involved in Iraq,” said Alireza Nader, a senior policy analyst at the Rand Corp.

    Well what’s Iran is waiting for? time to go to support the Shiite led gov’t against the ISIL. I don’t understand Iran mentality they have Maliki controlled from the begining. Yet they always hesitated to help his gov’t from these Jihadists. Its time for all out war against these maniacs.. but also Maliki need to share more power and stop making Sunnis as a second class citizen. otherwise we all can witness how much they welcome the jihadists because of the oppression of the gov’t. While I understand Saddam was worse but how could Iraq becomes a democracy if they don’t share power.

    • IraniAngel

      what a strange comment.. i wonder what u wud have said if iran had done this from the begining in syria. if iran had intervented in syria back in 11 we wudnt be in this mess today.
      hezzy, assad n iran has been fighting this filthy isil n its like for three years n during the whole period of time they have been called the axis of evil by you n your kind.
      u as a christian shud go to janoub libnan n find 7assan nastryrallah n pull him outta his rat hole n kiss his a55 right now as shi3a 7ezzy n iran have saved yours!
      unbelievable, NOW u say they shud’ve done this from the begining. let me remind u that isil is short for islamic state of iraq n the LEVANT so they r coming for ya n then u will be begging us (iran) to come to ur rescue which i hope we wont as i wud love to see ur wife in a chador!

        ISIL attack is pre arranged by Maliki

        Its my assumption based on the Syrian incident where Assad regime let ISIL take the Raqa city at ease and never attacked them. ISIL didnt attack assad regime either. Assad brought this group in when he was having a big trouble against the FSA. After the ISIL intervention the FSA has been fighting a two front war and this situation is gone in favor of the Assad regime.

        I have been following the Iraqi resistance for at least five months through some you tube channel. I have seen the Iraqi sunni tribal groups fighting against the Maliki force but I have never seen a single reference on ISIL in those channel. But surprisingly the media kept portraying the resistance as ISIL movement. Now those Jihadis in mask are brought in to action against the sunni tribal resistance when Maliki found himself caught by the balls. You dont know who they are behind the mask. I wont be surprise if they are Iranian revolutionary guard. Other benefit of this move is – Iran Assad regime and Nuri Maliki just got a licence to indiscriminately kill the true sunni resistance and civilian in the name of fighting Al-Qaeda/ISIL. Let the dust settle down and you may be surprised from the outcome in Iraq

            Iran’s Harboring of Al Qaeda.Since 2001, Iran has harbored key Al Qaeda operatives.
            In its 2010 “Country Reports on Terrorism,” the U.S. State Department wrote that “Iran remained unwilling to bring to justice senior Al Qaida members it has detained, and has refused to publicly identify those senior members in its custody. Iran has repeatedly resisted numerous calls to transfer custody of its AQ detainees to their countries of origin or third countries for interrogation or trial. Iran also continued to fail to control the activities of some AQ members who fled to Iran following the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.”

          • wargame1

            In January 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department froze the assets of four key Al Qaeda operatives based in Iran, including Osama’s eldest son Sa’ad bin Laden. Regarding the action, Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey stated, “It is important that Iran give a public accounting of how it is meeting its international obligations to constrain al Qaeda.”

            In fact, as reported as far back as 2003, since Sa’ad’s “arrival in Iran… he has assumed a more active role in directing al Qaeda, and he has been identified as a senior leader.” It is believed that Iran allowed Sa’ad Bin Laden to relocate to Pakistan in late 2008.

        I hate jihadists as much as i hate hezbollah. All I am saying Iran manipulating the situation in Iraq for a long time. they do lip service then they want the US to fight the jihadists. well you go fight them since Iraq is under Shiite control. I will be damned if I beg Iran to save me your jerk dumb ass comments from you.

          all i know is that while u left leb for a nasty ghetto in america hezzy was doing a great job defending ur country n u have the nerve to hate them? who said u have the honor to hate them anyways? now get back to ur nasty ghetto n stay away from drugs kid
          ps i myself bitterly hate hezzy bcoz they prevent u from slaughtering one another like u did for 15 yrs.

          • nagy_michael2

            I do not live in the Ghetto you schmuck and i have a good life here. I left because i would not be able to live this good life there all because people like Hezzy. no i do not want to thank Hezzy for pretending to be an enemy of Israel while helping the Syrian to butcher Lebanese? while killing so many leaders just alone since 2005. There is nothing to thank them for.. i hope they and the jihadists, Iran and the syrian regime rot in hell and you can take Israel with you as well. I cannot believe what i am reading from people like you who forgot that for 30 years the Syrian had no mercy on us and still don’t. They never help us build Lebanon instead they built a terrorist machine for their own purposes and the higher goal of Iran. Or did you forget many of your scum leaders have reminded over and over that South Lebanon is the first line of Defense for Iran. what more proof do you want? if Iran, Syria and Hezbollah didn’t allow Fatah Al Islam and facilitated the passage and training of Al Qaada into Iraq. we would not be in this mess at all. I remember Nassrallah telling the LAF the camps are red line when they were trying to flush out Fatah Al Islam?? why isn’t Syria a red line for Nassrallah? who the hell are you to tell me that I should get down on my knees to kiss my butcher ass.. go to hell you and them.

          • IraniAngel

            do u really think imma read all that crap?

      • nagy_michael2

        Yah today I read that Al Qaada in Iraq is selling oil to the Syrian regime and that’s their main funding comes from. thanks to Assad who refused to bomb them before.. amazing how he picks to fight AL nusra and that group is fighting al qaada group from iraq. I wander what kind of conspiracy is this? Assad is befriending al Qaada in Iraq. they in return fighting AL Maliki.. yah strange comments allright. all i was saying is that Iran which is closest to Iraq was taking its sweet time to fight al qaada yet they want the americans to go back after they denied them a base there..

    • wargame1

      The whole thing is planned by Iran in order to officially invade Iraq. The Army of Maliki simply welcomed ISIL/Al-Qaeda like Assad welcomed ISIL/Al-Qaeda in Raqa city in Syria. Maliki was facing the resistance from the tribal sunni fighters. Maliki was losing ground and exposed himself as a sectarian maniac. Now Maliki and Iran used the same strategy as Assad did. Assad let ISIL take Raqa city when he was facing huge resistance from the FSA. Now FSA is fighting a two front war where Assad have become the ultimate beneficiary. Al-Qaeda/ISIL is a Iranian counter resistance force. Now the situation is apparently going in to Irans favor as they have created a legitimate pretext to “Protect Iraqi government against Al-Qaeda” . But the top leaders of Al-Qaeda live in Iran under the protection of Iranian government. What Iran is doing in Iraq is similar to what Putin is doing in Ukraine and its a blunder. At least 17 European countries will suffer from Gas supply if Putin tries to control/Monopolize the Gas supply. Similarly its Iran who are physically moving in to Iraq to take control of the Oil field in the name of fighting Al-Qaeda. Europe and USA are not stupid. The outcome will be bad for Iran and Russia and their stupid move will force Europe/USA reconcile with the Afghan Taliban (NOT PTT Pakistani fake Taliban run by Iran and India) and other sunni resistance in order to punish Iran and Russia.Northern Iraq is a oil rich province where Turkey have big interest. I wont be surprised to see a Turkish invasion in Northern Iraq. The greed will gather every greedy bastard to fight each other and die.

      • nagy_michael2

        I would not be surprised if Iran has a hand in all this in order to invade Iraq anyway and stay there. they will cement their foot in three places(Syria, Lebanon and Iraq). But I do not like those jiahdists so i hope they slaughter each other for all i care.

        • wargame1

          Those Jihadist are called Khawarij. They are pro Iranian but they identify themselves as sunni and the media portrays them as sunni too. The place where they invade in Iraq are sunni dominated area from where maliki was facing the most resistance.When ever Iran and other occupation force need to invade the Al-Qaeda magically appears. Let us not forget Afghanistan where we may also see a magical return of Al-Qaeda. Its a cunning strategy resembles to the medieval “Witch hunting” strategy. You may watch this youtube video about the Khawarij/Al-Qaeda

      Same thing for Syria, same scenario, i was pleading not take these maniacs side for hatred of Assad.. my God, they let them evolve in

      i warned that Lebanon would be isolated, millions of Christians died or left..these barbarians are neighbours. I say hatred blinds.

      • wargame1

        in 2003, The Washington Post reported on a “decade-old relationship” between Ayman al-Zawahiri, then Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command, and Ahmad Vahidi, Iran’s current Minister of Defense. In 2001, Vahidi, then commander of the IRGC’s elite Quds Force, reportedly provided “safe harbor for some Al Qaeda leaders who were trapped in the mountains of Tora Bora” following negotiations with al-Zawahiri. According to a European intelligence analyst, “The [Quds] Force’s senior leaders have longstanding ties to Al Qaeda, and since the fall of Afghanistan, have provided some Al Qaeda leaders with travel documents and safe haven.”

        Under such arrangements, key members of Al Qaeda’s operational structure came to reside in Iran, including such infamous figures as Saif al-Adel (Security Chief), Sa’ad bin Laden (Osama’s son, Senior Operative), Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah (CFO of AQ) and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (Chief of AQ in Iraq).

      • nagy_michael2

        My friend nobody likes them and I will be damned if i ever side with these extremists. But all along I have been saying Bashar and his father were never on the side of Lebanon. They treated lebanon as if its their own. I even have a book what the Late Assad thought of Lebanon. he specifically said it was part of Syria. I mean they treated us like dirt and they never wanted to leave. they armed and trained Hezbollah instead of the Lebanese army.. why? i tell you because they want to use guerrilla warfare against Israel and use Hezbollah and I am including Iran here with syria to do their biddings. hezbollah have been trying to control every aspect of Lebanon and nothing going the right way. Not saying Hariri was a saint but at the same time we want to stop these assasinations and killings. we don’t want some iranian general telling us that South Lebanon is the first line of Defense for them. Nobody wants these jihadists and I know many sunnis don’t want them either. but you frustrate the sunnis in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria and they will turn into AL Qaada. Look at an example in Lassa.. hezbollah men holding arms to build over Church land and no gov’t official, army or ISF can stop them. Hezbollah say we are not part of it. But Moqdad is part of Hezbollah and if hezbollah denies protection, I bet you the army would have moved in and took Moqdad and his 50 men apart.. Enough B.S from Hezbollah and Those assholes call themselves Jihadists.. i hope they will die soon and we get rid the earth from these low lifes.

        • Comtessa di Alba

          I feel the suffering, Lebanon is like in a Labyrinth, while the People, ordinary
          people, want to find a sortie, Politicians don’t have the People’s interests in
          mind (or at heart) but their own, you call the system democratic? How many
          Parties are there? One party for each private Family region, Jumblat region,
          Jmayel region, Hobeika region etc… one for each Sect..it’s kapharnaum
          it’s not a Democracy, it’s not a dictatorship, if the head doesn’t function how
          can the body. About what’s happening, one thing i don’t understand, Syria was
          no trouble untill 2011, the father had said Lebanon was part of Syria, maybe
          he meant till 1943 (?) the son said Shebaa Farms are in Lebanese region, he
          wanted to make it official. At the present time, at this moment protecting Lebanon from ISIL and sharia Islamists, is a question of survival, i’m very
          afraid the West allowed this to happen all i can say is, Allah sahedna.

          PS. If Hezbollah is constructing illegally, where are the Laws?

          • nagy_michael2

            I agree with you on all parties. That’s why i never really joined the war and do not belong to any party. We have succeeded in bringing attention not only to our arab neighbors but also the world somehow with hardly any resources for outsiders to be greedy about. I am against any oppressors no matter who it is. I have respect for Hezbollah when they kick Israel out no one can deny that. But the fact is when we call Israel an enemy and Syria who bombarded us and tortured us and strangled us basically for 30 years we still consider as brothers. To me they didn’t help Lebanon a bit and they instead of building the institutions in the government and strong army. They built a group called Hezbollah to be used by them and Iran. Now I know the immediate dangers are the jihadists. But if we Christians and Sunnis didn’t feel humilated and trampled by the Syrians, it would be a different story alltogether. What started out to be a protest in syria over basic needs and rights turned out to be Shabiha militia going around and hunting people like animals. So the jihadists used the opportunity of the weakeness of the Syrian revolutions and encouraged blood and fighting back the Syrian regime. You and I know very well that the Syrians even muslims sunnis do not want the jihadists now for sure. that’s based on the fighting between them of course. but the fact is Syrian regime encouraged these jihadists and facilitated routes for them to Iraq. I am not saying Saudi and other countries didn’t help extremists. but everybody got blood on their hands. yet we are the victims including the Syrian people. we are all suffering and i am here in the U.S. but i feel terrible for what’s happening there. Moqdad was ordered by the court to dismantle the building.. that’s the law there but the law is based on the jungle whomever is the strongest. For now its Hezbollah and until they order their officer to stop building then they are culprits as well.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I understand better, so it’s the law of the jungle, that’s bad news, makes me think, if the people feel unjustly treated, feel this (law of the jungle) i oppressive by God it is, feel insecure, feel injustice, why is it there’s no unity in the public to demand what’s due to the people, who pays the politicians? Even if they are millionaires they must be public servants.. but they are not.. the only strong, intelligent, loyal, not, corrupt Man i know in Lebanon is Rai, he’s a Patriarch, he was against the destruction of Syria, Assad is hated in Lebanon, all this puzzle fit’s Israeli and the West plan, UAE oil will dry up finish in 30 yrs, the West want’s Syria. Oil and gas security shares in Golan Heights are sold since 2009. Syria sits on the biggest gas reserve Middle East is a Greek tragedy..i give up, all Arab countries were weakened

          • 5thDrawer

            Damn right it’s complicated … and more than by what you think is a ‘plan’ to ‘take’ all the oil on the planet BY ‘The West’. People are running around everywhere trying to find more. And if ‘humans’ don’t find a good alternative to most of the uses for it (as in East Indian sewing machines), they know it will be gone at some point and humanity will really be back in the ‘dark ages’ – and having to kill all the whales just for oil-lamps – another finite supply, of course.
            (good part – no clothes after the sewing machines grind to a halt 😉
            And really, even if some people enjoy sitting around camel-dung fires at night, they are also going to miss the cell-phones to blow up cars because there won’t be any way to recharge the damn things. The machines that make photo-voltaic materials will grind to a halt too. So will farm-equipment.
            STOP the People Explosion. Won’t need so much oil and it’s by-products crammed into a ‘life-on-Earth’ time period by humans. Really, if ‘we’ don’t make it to the next super-big asteroid hit on the oil that’s there, it’s going to be messy.

          • nagy_michael2

            And to add more to the puzzle which is really odd and I remember writing here about it. The ISIL position in Da’esh was not bombed by Syrian troops even though they were suppose to fight against them. The last few days I read that Abou Bhakr Al Bagdadi been selling oil and gas to the Syrian regime for a while now. He amassed lots of money just selling gas to the syrian regime. now he is charge of wide area in Iraq where he will more oil to sell. Again his biggest customer is the Syrian regime. so how could two arch enemies be dealing with each other.. that shows you that politics is above us all and here we are the little guys fighting among each other for these jackasses.. It makes you think that staying neutral is the best way.. Hezbollah mentality to be honest is no different from Al Qaada. But their patience is way much better for sure. meaning they can control by different means other than waliet al faqih or using al qaada beheading methods. in the end you die early or later.. well i guess i will die later lol.
            I have to admit I didn’t like Rai in the beginning but now i see his viewpoints in many areas and he is trying to help ease the situation and alleviate the sufferings of many people. but i hate to say chances are he could be next on the assasination list if he doesn’t contain his actions.. I certainly hope not..

          • Comtessa di Alba

            An eloquent “addition” to the puzzle when

            you say; – “how could two arch enemies be dealing with each other..that shows you that politics is above us all and..”- During Saddam war on Iran, Sharon sold oil and other weaponry to Israel arch enemy Iran, Israel and arch-enemy Saudi Arabia are allies. We have a brain and they have the Power
            We are pawns and disposable commodities.

            They sacrificed young soldiers, millions of civilians
            ‘since Irak’, and nothing good came out of these Wars, now we have new generations of terrorists with no cause, just killers. -” and here we are little guys fighting among each other for these Jackasses, it makes you think that staying neutral is the best way”.. I think Rai could be next on the list..that’s why he is a great man he knows it. Christians such as those who killed Frangieh family, Shamhoun family.

          • Farq2

            Don’t forget all the business between him, his family and the Bush’s. Or again did you conveniently forget that part.

          • The real lebanese

            So you’re saying Iran and Bush were hiding al Qaeda together. Makes no sense when the US were fighting them and Iran was hiding them.

          • Farq2

            Go look up your history Real. Your uninformative and biased research is evident

          • Comtessa di Alba

            He’s a serious case i didn’t know that.. he’s sticky.

          • The real lebanese

            I did look it up. You lack research in general.

          • IraniAngel

            what an imagination.. hey look santa is here just scroll up a little

          • The real lebanese

            You’re right. Your imagination is a little wild. While I state facts you state things you imagine were true.

        • Comtessa di Alba

          Irrational..

          • The real lebanese

            Many of Iran’s actions are irrational..

          • 5thDrawer

            In religion, not much IS rational. 😉

          • IraniAngel

            back in ur stupidity again only seconds after i gave u credit in another thread

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I’l repeat it for you: “Iran and Syria funded al Qaeda”- is irrational… aaand childish.

          • wargame1

            BOKO HARAM IN NIGERIA IS A IRANIAN SPONSORED GROUP
            Nigerian troops in the Joint Task Forces in Kano said that investigations into the discovery of weapon cache found in a home occupied by Lebanese foreign nationals in Kano shows that Boko Haram Islamist militants have connections with the Lebanon-based Hezbollah. Your are sick in your head thats why it is difficult for you to comprehend the truth.

            Did you look up the link i gave you to ISIL-FSA?
            Oh, i know you don’t read much..

          • Comtessa di Alba

            The question was “Iran and Syria funded al Qaeda” that’s irrational… i don’t wish to continue it’s childish.

          • The real lebanese

            Good night.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            ..to hide his ignorance i suppose, talks for the sake of talking it’s easy to analyze just follow his posts, when proven wrong he will repeat the same adding on top.

          • The real lebanese

            Just the facts. Look it up and stop being ignorant please.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Look up, i see Malmequer and you are two Zios who “like” same things haha.

      • AkhouManUki

        That’s a dirty mouth for an Angel – come on now – there are kids like manwardo in the audience, when you let the f word fly so free, you have to stop and think of the consequences.

        • Comtessa di Alba

          Angel must be young and flamboyant as Cookie (they had lots of fun together)..

          • IraniAngel

            i’m young. i’m in my early 20s.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I know ..(psychology):)

          • IraniAngel

            how did u know?

          • Comtessa di Alba

            and the name (a lot a)..

          • IraniAngel

          • Comtessa di Alba

            i didn’t know which. About your age, and other i feel things immediately
            it’s a gift je suppose.. after i wrote that to Akhu, cookallotafagina told me
            “he’s only 20 years old lol”

        • Comtessa di Alba

          You’re right Akhu, angel should wash his mouth, who’s manwardo?
          I’m laughing…hhh you’re funny. Bonne nuit 🙂

          • IraniAngel

            manwardo = man-o-war i guess n apparently he is back in the game. we missed u man-o-war..

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I know, that’s why i laughed, Akhu thought mano was a she i advocated he
            was not, they clashed mano cursed, was angry and left just when Akhu
            believed me, i missed him too.

          • IraniAngel

            ta3ban akeed we all missed him hhhh

        • IraniAngel

          u n i broke up remember? now i can talk however i want to lol

          • AkhouManUki

            My little Irani friend, always remember that respect starts from within. Learn to respect your tongue with the words you choose to allow it to speak!

        • man-o-war

          Richard Cabeza,

          The only kid is the one I put in your mums belly. Now get back on your knees with mekenseh and juggle. If you continue with your jackassery I’ll make your mum swallow next time. We don’t want that.

          How’s that for immature comments? I can’t help it, she makes me feel young again…

          • Comtessa di Alba

            mano, don’t be angry Akhu was sorry for the mistake, but you disappeared:):)

          • man-o-war

            He missed me? He knows very well that I’ve been busy.

            My apologies for the crude comments, but these are the types of comments him and his ilk understand the best. I can’t lie though, I enjoy dishing it out more than he likes receiving.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I missed you, Akhu doesn’t know you, I’m sad about this because i liked him.

          • IraniAngel

            mn 2lbe b2lak wana kaman cht2tlak. i still remember that funny comment u made about MI10

          • AkhouManUki

            Wow manweirdo is back – I had no idea your were into loubi b’zeit. Sa7tayn!

            You and Farqrallah need a new outlet to relieve anger and stress – clearly there’s the potential for you to take it out on innocent and defenseless women.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Haida mish helou…..!i

          • man-o-war

            You go by akhoumanuki and I’m the weirdo, lol.

            Nothing like shagging your mum to relieve some anger and stress. She takes it like a champ and comes back for more.
            Your mum may be defenseless, but certainly not innocent ; ))

            We can stop this or you can continue making asinine comments and I’ll feel obliged to reply.

          • AkhouManUki

            Fantastic ya Imm Anwar – you have taken it to a new level – you like to rape deceased women in their upper 90’s – I think that puts in you in a rare class of human beings. Congrats! There’s a special place in hell reserved for you next to your buddies Bashar and Hassouni.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Good bye!

          • man-o-war

            Haha! It’s not rape if it’s consensual ; )

            If your mother is deceased than it must have been your wife or daughter I was shagging. My apologies.

            Richard Cabeza, will you be having fun in hell with us? Or are you going to heaven? You know, the boring place. No alcohol having, vanilla sex with virgins, and full of self righteous douchnozzles like yourself.

          • AkhouManUki

            Go ahead and keep the lesbian fantasies going ya Imm Anwar, especially the ones where you get dead people to consent to being raped. I’m sure your mom must be proud of what you have become.

            Just remember that one day, when you finally sober up, you’ll realize that your mom raised you to the best of her ability despite the hardships she had to endure. There’s no reason for you to go around trying to rape mothers to try to get back at your mom, she did her best – honor her for that at least.

      • Comtessa di Alba

        Cook1half is now Alotta Fajina..

        • IraniAngel

          i know i tracked him down yesterday n found him on daily star leb. then minutes after he started posting here again 🙂 how did u find out?

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I just said Cook the nun picture was better see on “Hezbollah using arms..”.

    • IraniAngel

      i just cant get ur stupid comment outta my mind which is strange bcoz u really r a dot to me however after giving ur post several thoughts i can only come up with ONE valid explanation for ur sudden shift. the only reason why u have been opposed to everything iran has done to serve lebanese n syrian interest, gotta be that u r not a real lebanese as u claim urself to be since a REAL lebanese wud not abhor the protectors of leb the way u do. u r not really a REAL lebanese u r a REAL shame to everything n everyone lebanese.

      • The real lebanese

        Having trouble reading. Please use correct grammar.

        • Comtessa di Alba

          This is not important..your Arabic is not good either.. he has a point,

          • The real lebanese

            My arabic is good you just lack knowledge in Lebanese culture.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Huh? Study Levant Arabic; “enna mubaraf arabieh” sounds from the Maghreb.

          • The real lebanese

            Not what I said. Go back and check. And I already provided the link to the diversity in Lebanese Arabic now you’re just being ignorant. Considering Lebanon was once a French colony it may sound Maghreb. Although I dont think it does.

          • 5thDrawer

            I’ll stay with the English. 😉 BUT A note on these debates.
            After working two weeks to write a long ‘love-letter’ to a woman in Lebanon in Arabic (gleaned from a book purportedly fine on the subject), the reply was:
            ‘That’s nice Dear, but it’s not OUR Arabic.’
            :-)) I gave up. BOTH. 😉

          • The real lebanese

            So many varieties of Arabic. Not only does each country have its own, but different areas of a country speak differently. Surprised comtessa did not know this.

          • 5thDrawer

            She should. She lives in Quebec, where they say they speak French. :-)))))
            (I think that’s why someone came up with the word ‘Francophony’.)

          • Comtessa di Alba

            An old one … Scotch old chap?
            You learned it from my stalker thank you for that 🙁

          • Comtessa di Alba

            The Canadian National anthem was written and composed by Calixa Lavalée
            in Québéc, in French, the têtes carrés translated into English, they have the
            nerve to shooo at beginning of a hockey game when sang in French. the
            absurdity, the stupidity.. Les Canadiens de Montreal created hockey, when
            they where French Canadians, before they made another flag and stoped to
            be French Canadians and called themselves Quebecois The greatest most
            brilliant Canadian prime Minister Trudeau, was from Québéc, now you have
            a dumb baby face evangelical cowboy, who turned independent Canada the
            World admired as a peace loving country, into an America and Jewish puppet.

          • MaImequer0

            Trudeau??? LOL !!!☻ Yes sweetie, I give you the trudeau salute….

            So guessing you find justin hot eh???

          • 5thDrawer

            Oh God. You liked Trudeau?? Damn the women.!
            You’re right about the anthem’s composer.
            We should never, since you enjoy history so much, forget who won the war, and then ALLOWED the French trappers to stick around WITH their native wives. 😉

          • Comtessa di Alba

            You keep turning in circles, you suffer from dementia?
            Of course each country have its own, that was not the subject of our conversation, you never spoke about countries. YOU were talking about Mount Lebanon different “dialects”. For the 6th time; many different accents not dialects.

          • The real lebanese

            I provided you a link so you must be dumb. And for the 20th time, what do you have to say about Hezbollah stealing Christian lands??

          • Comtessa di Alba

            I say good night..Zio!

          • IraniAngel

            yir bcoz that only applies to arabic since an australian speaks the exact same way as an american does right?

          • The real lebanese

            Exactly what I’m saying. Just like english has many dialects so does arabic.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            8o% of the English language comes from 8th century French, the rest is
            borrowed from German, Swedish .. some Arabic; Coffee, tomatoes, potatoes, sorbet.. London is 1000 old Paris 2000, Great Britain name is after Brittany in
            France. Arthur’s Legend, Lancelot, the Holly Grail etc..was created by French
            writer in 12 century, Chrétien de Troyes.
            England’s Royal Arms are in French: “Dieu est mon Droit”.

          • 5thDrawer

            Yes indeed. English. World’s most flexible language. (not counting Teckie-Talk) Love it. Brings US ALL together, doesn’t it. :-)))

          • 5thDrawer

            Mon Dieu. The truth hurts many.
            But in truth, there is no sorrow in the knowledge.
            Even Napoleon playing with his nipple couldn’t beat the stiff upper lip. :-)))
            Or, the way the Brits ‘took over’ from their ‘masters’ and designed ‘democracy’ and freedom of speech.
            (Some recent flaws with that being noted carefully, however. 😉

            Yeee… i’m surprised Comtessa didn’t know that..
            Ha Ha..! i told you once if ridicule was a killer
            you would be dead.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            You have a nerve..must be gay, what a hypocrite you’re repeating what i told you..

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Read Khalil Gibran, Lebanese poet, Arabic is the most beautiful language in the world for poetry, most common words such as greetings, are poetic.. ex:Good morning ..oh.. sorry, difficult to translate in English 🙂

          • 5thDrawer

            I always enjoyed the poetry, in such lines as:
            ‘May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.’
            Somehow seemed nicer than ‘Go to Hell’, or similar vulgar modern epithets.
            (most, unfortunately, are now using the simple-to-remember ‘F’ word)

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Diversity of accents, not dialects..please go explain anything you want to your friends, the Lebanese Community where you live:)

          • The real lebanese

            Dialects too. Read the link i sent you earlier.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Levant Arabic dialects are used in Lebanon, Syria
            and Palestine, different Arabic than Irak in the North
            and Egypt in South. Beyrouth and the mountains have different accents, i have Jabalia accent, in North Africa the Maghreb Arabic are incomprehensible for us. That’s why Politicians speak Classical Arabic, to communicate with different Arab countries. You should pay me for the lessons.

          • IraniAngel

            i also tried to explain that to her

          • Comtessa di Alba

            IraniAngel, i don’t remember ever discussing the subject with you. Only endless Babel Tower conversations- about this subject- with the REAL something.. please enlighten me.
            PS. Misunderstanding:) still funny..

          • The real lebanese

            Syrians have different Arabic than Lebanese who have different Arabic than Palestinians. If you dint think its true look up a Syrian talk show and you will see many differences. Heck, I bet Palestinians in Gaza speak different than Palestinians in Golan Heights.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Same Arabic, different accents, i was born there. Let it go talk about something else, the more you explain the more you sink.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            “Although I don’t think so” Ha Ha… not sure?
            I said “Enna mubaraf arabieh” sounds like the Maghreb, Moroccan, Algerian accents but not Lebanese.

        • IraniAngel

          i can type in lebanese arabic but im not certain if u as a REAL lebanese wud understand

          • Farq2

            crusader (Guest):

            i am sure you are ass fucked on daily basis. probably by someone who wear eye glasses and smoke cheap cigarettes. you seem a very unstable piece of a woman. i think you live on Xanax and other anti-depression medication. there is a big chance also that you own a male dog and you do sex with it etc..

            2:56 p.m., Sunday June 15 crusader aka Malmeaquer Ya Libnan did nothing,

            discus and follow me, I made it private, so he just look if i’m up there..

          • IraniAngel

          • Comtessa di Alba

          • MekensehParty

            Hi back

          • IraniAngel

            bt3’ar menni mish hek?

    • Farq2

      Tell me Real, WTF is the difference. Aren’t these terrorist active in Syria as well. So it’s ok if they kill innocent people in Syria but in Iraq it’s a big no no.

      • The real lebanese

        I dont support the terrorist in Syria. I don’t think you will ever understand this as I have explained this to you many times.

        • Farq2

          You could have fooled me. You want them destroyed in Iraq and armed in Syria. Oh, that’s rite, you only want the MODERATES armed. How silly of me.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            He explained many times :))

          • IraniAngel

            its not her fault her sh!t doesnt make any sense. she is just doing what she is paid for.

          • Farq2

            I didn’t know he was a she. Or is it the other way around. :-))). Damn you Irani, now I’m confused. Lol

          • Comtessa di Alba

            ..i posted Irani thinking she was me :()

          • MekensehParty

            They’re not going to be destroyed in Iraq or Syria
            Not without US involvement at least which is not going to come
            You claimed victory in Iraq way too soon
            you thought that you can control the Sunnis without the US support so lets see you opening yet another front and funneling more weapons and soldiers.
            PS: get ready for a 3rd front soon

    • Alotta Fagina

      LOLOLOL same

    • MekensehParty

      It’s the same case as Syria buddy
      Sunnis in their majority ARE extremists
      only that majority has been silent for too long and now it blew for all to see
      Iran is going to get involved in yet another war, ironically fighting the US enemies yet again
      It’s crumbling everywhere, they are fighting left right, north and south and a third front is in preparation before the internal front that will KO the mullahs

      • IraniAngel

        beside the iran-iraq war which war has iran been ‘involved’ in?

        • MekensehParty

          does Syria ring a bell?
          or are you still in denial that Iranian forces are fighting with bashar?

          • IraniAngel

            oh it actually does ring a bell… but hey i support that war for the sake of u eventhough u dont realize it

          • MekensehParty

            for the sake of me??? hahaha
            I owe you now? LOLOLOL
            These ISIL that you smuggled to fight the Americans
            These Shia militias that you created in Iraq for the same purpose
            Today is the big day where all these soldiers of Allah are going to battle together and the blood will run up to the knees.
            Every one that falls on both camps is one less enemy.
            Every bullet that is fired is paid for by both our enemies and is meant to take the life or injure or even scratch the wall of our enemies.
            Keep claiming divine victories and noble causes, the Sunni sword is on the outskirt of Baghdad and you are shitting in your pants crying for help from the US that’s not going to come.

          • IraniAngel

            why do u assume i believe in allah? allah is an arab god n islam is an arab religion which have nothing to do wid me. these wars r not about religion

          • MekensehParty

            Why did you assume that I assumed this?

          • IraniAngel

            u said something about allahs soldiers as if i support hizbullah bcoz they r muslims. i support hezzy despite of that

          • MekensehParty

            hmm your analytical skills should be reprogrammed by Dr. Maher

          • IraniAngel

            he shud start wid u

          • MekensehParty

            Office of Dr. Maher

            Report on the behavior of sample 213 AKA IraniAngel
            June 14, 2014
            “The sample is a mess. Analytical skills heavily damaged by multiple reprogramings. Vocab and Grammar skills seem very hit as well.
            Actions to be taken: bring in for reprograming.”

            This is the Iran that I would like to see, skater girls and freedom of speech!
            Apparently that’s a pic taken in a suburb in Tehran

          • IraniAngel

            widout the 7ijab tehran wud be like LA, NY, london or any other western city

          • Leborigine

            There is nothing wrong with the hijab, especially those ones. The problem is your government and the freedom of speech! Iran can be a great country without its dictatorship, I just have a problem with it because they are destroying my country with their proxies.

          • IraniAngel

            wild guess here: leb widout hezzy wud likely be as f’ed as leb wid. no need to blame them for more than they r responsible for.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            Does Syria ring a bell?
            Afghan Jihadi barbarian beheads a Catholic priest, father Paul Murad.
            Are you in denial NATO allied Turkey opened Syrian frontiers to non-Arab
            Sunni Jihadists from Asia ? Chechens, Talibans while Saudi Arabia sent
            Sunni-Arab Jihadists, together opening the door to beasts from more than
            18 different foreign countries, who the hell has a God given right to send
            thousands of fighters enter a Sovereign country, the West used Sunni-Shia
            sectarian hatred drawing lines in sand in Mesopotamia, in WW1.
            The “Christian West” sent beheaders, raping, looting Christians of Syria,
            genocidal Turkey again killing Armenians, no Christians lifted a finger except
            the middle one, you sadistic maniac only talk about Sunni-Shia, while emptying
            the Levant from Christians is a continuous plan since Iraki Christians.
            You sold Lebanon 1000 times.

          • MekensehParty

            Tse tse tse, same old rumbling…
            You do not talk for the Christians of the east
            You have sold yourself to Sadam, then bashar and now the mullah. None of them is Christian or the defender of Christians. Come back and talk when you have a mind of your own.

          • Comtessa di Alba

            No, General Patton! Tse tse tse.

  • 5thDrawer

    One may begin to understand just how barbaric they actually are, when you hear ” …you can’t fathom an alternative like al Qaeda” coming from Saber, a 25-year-old member of Iran’s Basij militia. 😉 Even the ‘expert’ controllers are afraid of having that weirdest of all versions of ‘Sharia’ coming anywhere close to them. :-))
    And what’s happening at Arsal in Lebanon should have everyone shivering through the summer.

  • Alotta Fagina

    Parts of Iraq belong to Iran anyway, time to change the Sykes-Picot map

    • Comtessa di Alba

      Ah at last, somebody knowledgeable and intelligent 🙂

          When i publish a link it works, you’re supposed to be one
          of the kind ..i can’t open, try open your link see and fix it please.

          • Alotta Fagina
          • Comtessa di Alba

            Troubling to look at..looks like tumors (moving). Sykes-Picot redrew Middle-East map while having tea, French pastries.. ana jouani .

        • Leborigine

          Its not good enough Fagina, syria is not divided as it should be! There should be at least 5 different states and all completely independent.

        • 5thDrawer

          History is filled with ‘After’ maps. :-)))
          After a few hundred years, they are only footnotes in time, noting the ‘progress’ of humanity. 😉
