Iran and USA War

Iran Starts To Attack ISIS – New Equations in Middle east

 Iran Starts To Attack ISIS – New Equations in Middle east 

ISIS is hell bent on destroying existing states to build its own state that crosses existing borders.
It is known to all that  ISIS is against Iran and is unleashing terror in Syria dealing  brutality with brutality  and shifting the balance of power on the ground. It is also foregone conclusion that in the end  ISIS will backfire on everyone. ISIS is the greatest threat to Iran in the sectarian Sunni-Shiite balance. If ISIS  succeeds in curbing the Iranian ambitions of dominating the middle east and invading the Arab lands, the Arab future will still be dark under  ISIS’s shadow, because ISIS is negative force which is also destructive, sectarian, and barbaric.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani told the General Assembly on September 25 that Iran’s promises of help in the war against ISIS depended on Western concessions in the nuclear talks. “We are determined to continue our confidence-building approach and our transparency” in the nuclear negotiations, Rouhani said. “If our interlocutors are equally motivated and flexible,” then Iran and the West can start cooperating on “very important regional issues, such as combating violence and extremism.” Western leaders have indicated that the Islamic Republic of Iran and its allies were key players in the fight against ISIS.

Why Iran Hates ISIS?  do you know?

 ISIS  harbors Anti Shiat views- They are anti shiates and believe that they have to destroy shia  shrines like that in Kabala- The holiest of all for shias like that of Imam Ali . This is of course bad news for the entire shia population in the world and Iran being the only  complete shia country on this earth wants to prevent that from happening before it is too late.  

Iran has to protect its economic interests too. ISIS is selling oil in black market at very low price which is detrimental to Iran’s economy as its existence is now entirely on selling oil at  lower price than international market price. This move of  ISIS to sell oil at lower price  has put Iran  in soup. The only way to put a stop to this is by countering ISIS.

ISIS is capable to wage a direct war on Iran  if they become more powerful.  ISIS can acquire more power  by looting Iraq and sooner or later they can attack Iran and pose similar problems  in its border. ISIS being a powerful militant group can even plant bombs in Iranian cities and make matters worse. So Iran decided to put a full stop  to all this  before it gets out of their hand. 

After the bitter confrontation with the West  for the past Thirty-five years , Iran is finally emerging as a potential Western ally. The American-led war on the  ISIS, has brought the West and Middle East nations closer for a common cause- Iran is on the brink of joining the coalition. Negotiations are in progress between Iran’s nuclear experts and their counterparts from six world powers. This would end sanctions  on Iran and end Iran’s isolation from the International community. Iran ,in return has to assure that  it does not develop nuclear weapons. All these developments are  eyed with skepticism by the other nations in the region particularly Israel and Saudi Arabia, the most formidable Sunni rival to Shiite Iran.

 Iran badly needs support from the west to avoid the burden of economic sanctions on it. This is the only way it can develop their failed economy. The political and economical condition in Iran is highly deplorable. No foreign reserve at all. The compensation for employees are very less, life is more or less bad and there are fewer facilities. So they need to strike a peace chord with the west and this is good opportunity for them. If They co operate to take on ISIS then naturally west will harbor sympathetic views on them.

 A senior Iranian official has confirmed his country carried out air strikes in neighboring Iraq against Islamic State fighters at the request of Iraqi authorities, Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported.

It quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Ebrahim Rahimpour as saying the strikes were not coordinated with the United States, which is also waging an air campaign against the radical Sunni Muslim militants who control large parts of north and west Iraq.

The purpose of the strikes was “the defense of the interests of our friends in Iraq”, the newspaper quoted Rahimpour as saying in an interview in London.

“We did not have any coordination with the Americans. We have coordinated only with the Iraqi government,” he said. “In general, every military operation to help the Iraqi government is according to their requests.”

Rahimpour’s reported comments were the first from an Iranian official confirming Iran’s role in the air strikes in the Iraqi province of Diyala, which borders Iran, in late November. On Wednesday an Iranian official had denied that Iran had launched any such strikes.

Diyala is an ethnically mixed province, where the Iraqi army, backed by Kurdish Peshmerga and Shi’ite militias drove Islamic State out of several towns and villages last month.

Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Wednesday he had no knowledge of Iranian air strikes. On Saturday, Finance Minister Hoshiyar Zebari told a security conference in Bahrain: “It’s not 100 percent confirmed.”

The Iranian role was first highlighted in footage filmed by Al Jazeera television, which appeared to show an F-4 Phantom striking Islamic State positions in Diyala. Defence experts said Iran and Turkey were the only regional operators of the F-4, and Turkey is reluctant to take on Islamic State militarily.

“We will not allow conditions in Iraq to descend to the level of Syria, which has been created by foreign players,” the Guardian quoted Rahimpour as saying, referring to Syria’s catastrophic three-year war in which Iran supports President Bashar al-Assad against rebels including Islamic State.

“And certainly our assistance (to Iraq) is stronger than our assistance to Syria, because they are nearer to us,” he said.

Rahimpour said Iran was also assisting Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, but repeated Tehran’s insistence that it did not have any ground troops in Iraq. “This is only an advisory presence. There is no need to send Iranian troops to Iraq. There are sufficient Iraqi and Kurdish troops there,” he said. 

IRAN is aware of the fact that  ISIS cannot match upto them . So before ISIS grow more powerful and pose serious threat to them,it has to be wiped out,

  Real comparison of forces

Capability of  ISIS  Military –  

 They have limited military strength. They have more than 30000 foot soldiers with no recognized air force or navy. They have 35 Calibre field machine gun and  183 mm Artillery for about 120 pieces. More than 200 Heavies which they captured for Iraq army and some anti tank missiles. They have older T54 Tanks and armed personal carries of 2nd generation. They also possess some trucks and other carrier vehicles. 

Capability of Iranian Military –  

Though Iran’s conventional army, navy and air force are severely limited in capability, they are strong enough to combat any invasion. However they are unlikely to win any major military clash if the United States intervened and will decisively be defeated.

Like the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Iran’s conventional forces have significant capabilities for irregular warfare and to threaten, intimidate, and conduct asymmetric operations and wars of attrition.

Iran can use conventional long-range missiles as terror weapons, and has strong influence over non-state actors like Hezbollah, Hamas and Iraq’s armed Shiite groups.

Iran has been declared chemical weapon state in compliance with the Chemical Weapons Convention. It may possess biological weapons program, and has acquired the technology and production capabilities necessary to obtain nuclear fission weapons within the next several years.

These capabilities though limited act as a growing deterrent to attack  Iran. It also in some ways compensate for the limits of its conventional forces.

  • Total forces: 500,000 to 525,000, including Revolutionary Guards. Most are poorly trained conscripts.
  • Regular army: 350,000
  • Regular navy: 18,000, including some 3,000 to 5,000 Marines
  • Regular air force: 25,000 to 35,000 
  • Reserves: An additional 350,000 poorly trained reserves
  • Paramilitary: Some 40,000.  In theory, it can mobilize up to 1 million more men (3,500 battalions) in the Basij Resistance Force, which has a nominal strength of over 11 million. Only a fraction of that force receives meaningful training, although Iran has created a substantial local mobilization capability and gives Basij core elements some training with the IRGC. 
  • Virtually all regular military officers are now products of the revolution.
