A senior Iranian commander says the United States planned the 9/11 terrorist
attacks to use them as pretext to invade the energy-rich Middle East.

“The US, looking for a pretext to invade the Middle East, masterminded the
9/11 incident and pointed an accusing finger at Muslim countries,” Commander
of the Iranian Army Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan
said on Saturday.

Pourdastan added that following the fall of the Soviet Union, the US
introduced itself as the world’s sole superpower and moved to instill the
new world order to prove its supremacy.

The Iranian commander noted that the US later found its geopolitical
policies a failure and decided to follow a geo-economic policy and control
the world’s energy resources, 60 percent of which was located in the Middle
East.

“To achieve that goal, they launched preemptive attacks on Afghanistan and
Iraq, and Iran was their next target, but wise policies adopted by the
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei along with
the unity of the Iranian nation prevented them from achieving their
objective,” Pourdastan said.

On September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated attacks were carried out in
the United States leaving almost 3,000 people dead.

The US, under the administration of former President George W. Bush, invaded
Afghanistan in 2001 after claiming that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by
members of al-Qaeda harbored by the then Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

The US also attacked Iraq in 2003 claiming that the Middle Eastern country
was in possession of weapons of mass destruction. Washington’s wars on Iraq
and Afghanistan have claimed the lives of more than a million people.
