West could target Russia, China next

A senior political analyst says Moscow and Beijing should not just sit by and watch the current anti-Iran threats and moves by the West as they are bound to be the next targets, Press TV reports.

“People like Russia and China had better figure out that if they just sit there and let these things happen, eventually they’ll be next,” Webster Griffin Tarpley, author and historian, said in an exclusive interview with Press TV.

“And by the time they (Russia and China) are next, there’ll be nobody else left standing,” Tarpley stressed.

The political analyst further warned that the US and UK are currently reenacting their agenda in the run up to the Iraq War, this time against Iran.

“We now also have the same thing going on: the misuse, the essentially ‘hijacking’ of the UN Security Council,” he said.

The United States and its allies accuse the Islamic Republic of potentially pursuing a militarized nuclear program and have accordingly used the allegation to push for four rounds of Security Council sanctions and a series of additional unilateral embargoes against Tehran.

The US and EU recently stepped up the pressure on Iran to unprecedented levels by imposing sanctions on the country’s crude and Central Bank in a bid to ultimately deprive Islamic Republic of its oil revenue. The US-led sanctions have further been accompanied by repeated threats of a military strike against the Islamic Republic.

Iran, meanwhile, has categorically denied the charges, asserting that its nuclear program is geared towards civilian ends, such as generating electricity and medical usages, to which it has a right as an IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) member and an NPT (Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty) signatory.
