In Syria, Iran-led Resistance forces with the help of Russia could have a crucial influence on western-backed armed group, like the liberation of eastern Aleppo. The project to carry out a regime change in Syria was a complete failure, by the achievement. There is no prospect that Western governments could topple the Damascus.
As the Resistance gained victory in Syria, Western governments with their regional allies tried so hard to topple the Damascus, to break the backbone of the resistance axis and to phase out Tehran’s key ally.
But the threat was turned into an opportunity by Resistance. There are few observers that does not recognize Iran’s increasing power in the region, Syria.
Iranian-backed forces in Iraq played an important role in the fight against ISIS. They were able to push back the terrorist group city by city and district by district in the past two years. And now they almost liberated Mosul at the final stage.
The victory of Iran-backed forces in Iraq and Syria made Tehran’s enemies seriously concerned. They explicitly expressed concern over creating a path which connects Eastern Iran to the West coast of the Mediterranean Sea in Syria. They put all their efforts to prevent completing the route.
Although, there are few people in Iran along with the vast majority of the media and Western governments that try to blame Iran for the destruction of Syria and Iraq, but there are a lot of indisputable documents and reports that show how West tried to achieve its objectives by supporting terrorists and Salafist groups.
Western countries supporting Salafist groups in the region is not a new matter. It was repeated many times in the region including the war in Afghanistan.
On the other hand, everyone knows that Westerns’ claim for bringing democracy and freedom to Syria was just a lie. Because they used the money and facilities of countries such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which don’t have first and most obvious principles of democracy, to establish democracy in Syria.
More importantly, it is become clear for everybody that the West made a false claim about democracy and accused Iran of being an undemocratic. Iranians actively participate in elections. They not only make their own destiny but also teach Western and regional countries a lesson in democracy that even ardent opponents of Iran’s acclaimed.
