American Researcher on Hizbullah TV: U.S. Might Use Nukes in Ukraine as a False Flag Operation [Video]

American researcher Scott Bennet said in a November 28, 2022 show on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon) that America, the EU, and Britain are on the “wrong side,” while Russia is on the “right side.” He said that Ukraine has been an American “puppet” and that since 2007, the U.S. has had biological labs in Ukrainian territory that have been developing weapons to target Slavic DNA. He also said that Russia is in line with people’s traditional values and will not use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, but that it is conceivable that the U.S. would use nuclear weapons and blame another country for it.In addition, he praised Iran and Islamic culture, saying that America has lost the humility and family values espoused by Islam, and he criticized the United States for being “embroiled” in perversions such as the LGBT agenda and other forms of “debauchery” and “insanity.” Moreover, Bennet said that recently re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Zionists, the Mossad, the CIA, and British and Saudi intelligence agencies were behind the 9/11 attacks. Al-Manar TV and the Al-Manar website presented Bennet as a former officer of the U.S. Army’s 11th Psychological Operations Battalion and said that he holds a PhD in political theory from the D.C.-based Catholic University of America.The MEMRI Lantos Project exposes anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in the Middle East region and Middle Eastern communities in the West with the aim of supporting legislation and educating media and the general public.

Pro-Iran Shiite Iraqi Militia Leader: Military Force Is the Only Way to Drive Americans Out of Iraq [Video]

Akram Al-Kaabi, Secretary-General of the Iraqi Al-Nujaba Movement, said in a November 28, 2022 interview on Russia Today TV that the “military option” is the only viable solution to the American “occupation” of Iraq, since the political option has always been “useless.” He said that the Al-Nujaba Movement has been active “on the ground” against the American presence, and he explained that only military pressure can force the Americans to leave Iraq or to negotiate with the Iraqi government about their withdrawal. When asked whether the withdrawal of U.S. forces may lead to the Iraqi “resistance” no longer having a legitimate reason to have weapons, he answered that the “legal owner” of the resistance’s weapons is the Twelfth Imam, the Shi’ite messianic figure, and that the resistance is not obligated to hand over its weapons to anybody other than him. In addition, he said that the Israeli “presence” in Iraq is no less dangerous than the American presence, that the resistance factions will not allow it, and that those who aim to normalize relations with Israel are legitimate targets just like “the Zionists in Iraq.” Moreover, he said that if the Iraqi government has the will to do so, it can reassert its sovereignty in Erbil with the help of the PMU and other forces. Al-Ka’abi gave the interview during his recent visit to Moscow, during which he also met with Russia’s deputy foreign minister.
