[quote:DoomneT:MV8yMDEzMDYxXzMzODI4ODU0XzgyMDNCMDQy] [b][color=red]Iran "US uses terrorists to wage cheap wars"[/color][/b] [i] A senior Iranian commander calls it a US tactic to use terrorists for cheap warfare, commenting on the State Department’s recently removing the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group from its list of terrorist organizations. Deputy Commander of Iran’s Armed Forces Chiefs of Staff, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said, “The US tactics include using terrorist groups to wage cheap wars against those who oppose it (Washington).” Referring to the act of delisting, which took place in late September, he said, “The US act of removing the name of the group from the list of terrorist groups has only taken place for blatant use of the group against the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” “The US and its allies, by removing the group’s name from the list of terrorist groups, are trying to psychologically prepare the situation so other countries accept them.” [/i] Read More: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/10/10/265895/us-uses-terrorists-to-wage-cheap-wars/ [/quote]
The United States military has secretly sent a task force of more than 150 planners and other specialists to Jordan
To help the armed forces there handle a flood of Syrian refugees, prepare for the possibility that Syria will lose control of its chemical weapons and be positioned should the turmoil in Syria expand into a wider conflict.
The task force, which has been led by a senior American officer, is based at a Jordanian military training center built into an old rock quarry north of Amman. It is now largely focused on helping Jordanians handle the estimated 180,000 Syrian refugees who have crossed the border and are severely straining the country’s resources.
American officials familiar with the operation said the mission also includes drawing up plans to try to insulate Jordan, an important American ally in the region, from the upheaval in Syria and to avoid the kind of clashes now occurring along the border of Syria and Turkey.
The officials said the idea of establishing a buffer zone between Syria and Jordan — which would be enforced by Jordanian forces on the Syrian side of the border and supported politically and perhaps logistically by the United States — had been discussed. But at this point the buffer is only a contingency.
