Iranian elite paramilitary force leader Major General Qassem Soleimani accused the United States of having “no will” to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and blasted President Barack Obama as not having “done a damn thing” to quell the terrorist insurgency. The remarks follow news that Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah is planning to increase its presence in Iraq to combat ISIS.

Soleiman, who heads Iran’s Quds Force tasked with special operations, was quoted by Iran’s Tasnim news agency as stating that “nobody is present” in the war on the Islamic State, aside from the government of Iran, and that the United States is particularly guilty of negligence in the war.

“Obama has not done a damn thing so far to confront Daesh: doesn’t that show that there is no will in America to confront it?” Soleimani reportedly said, echoing remarks American Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter made on Sunday that it was the Iraqi military that had shown they lack the “will to fight” against the Islamic State.

“How is it that America claims to be protecting the Iraqi government, when a few kilometres away in Ramadi killings and war crimes are taking place and they are doing nothing?” Soleimani asked. His criticism of the Obama administration echoes that of many within the United States who would like to see a more prominent role for the United States in the struggle, as well as the containment of an increasingly militarily belligerent Iran. “How is it that ISIS is seizing territory on two fronts, 10 months after US airstrikes began?” asked House Foreign Affairs Chairman

 last week, decrying the passive role the Obama administration had taken against the Islamic State.

 

“It’s dreadfully obvious that we aren’t working well enough to defeat ISIS and protect the people of Palmyra and its precious relics of our shared history,” he added. Palmyra and Ramadi, Iraq, both fell last week to the terrorists, and mass murders have been reported of both civilians and military personnel in both.

In an interview with The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg last week, President Obama stated that America was winning the war on the Islamic State. “Ramadi had been vulnerable for a very long time, primarily because these are not Iraqi security forces that we have trained or reinforced,” the President stated, asserting, “No, I don’t think we’re losing.” The interview was printed shortly before news arrived in the West of the fall of Palmyra.

President Obama’s statements appeared to be more in line with what the Iraqi government had been expecting of American officials than Carter’s. “Carter was likely given incorrect information because the situation on ground is different,” said Iraqi government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi of his “will to fight” remark.

The Iranian presence in Iraq has grown significantly to combat the Islamic State in the past few months, both officially and unofficially. Iran is currently embroiled in a battle to keep ISIS from fully controlling Baiji, an oil center in Iraq. As early as March, the Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah agreed to send 800 fighters to Iraq to fight ISIS and work alongside Iranian forces. The move, some lawmakers have suggested, was intended to prevent a situation in which American ground troops became necessary and overshadowed Iran’s presence.

In a speech from Lebanon this week, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah promised yet another increase in the number of Hezbollah fighters in Iraq, calling for a united international response against ISIS. “Today we are facing a kind of danger that is unprecedented in history, which targets humanity itself,” he said, calling for no one to “bury their heads in the sand.”

“We are present today in many places and we will be present in all the places in Syria that this battle requires,” Nasrallah promised.

The Islamic State itself appears to see Iran as a bigger threat than anti-ISIS Sunni governments. In an article in the latest issue of its official magazineDabiq, an Islamic State writer posits that ISIS will win because the coalition against it is too busy fighting amongst themselves, rather than fighting ISIS. Particularly, the article notes that the “apostate triad” of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are working harder to appease the United States than maintain control of the region, and that they are losing ground to Iran:

 

Through all this, the apostate triad intended to “prove” to their crusader masters that they were still essential to the future of the region, that they had the power to influence the outcome there, and that their opinion mattered when it came to American-Rāfidī [iranian] relations and the issue of Rāfidī [iranian] nuclear ambitions. Essentially, it was greed, fear, and envy which moved them. They wanted themselves, not the Rāfidah [iran], to be the favored allies of their crusaders.

US did nothing to stop Ramadi fall to ISIL   Mon May 25, 2015 11:10AM

Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Quds Force

 

Iranian commander Major General Qassem Soleimani has slammed the United States over the recent fall of the Iraqi city of Ramadi to the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group.

 

Soleimani, who is the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Quds Force, said that while the Ain al-Asad air base hosting US fighter jets was very close to Ramadi, the American military forces took no action to stop the ISIL militants fighting to take over the Iraqi city.

 

“This is not but complicity in [a] conspiracy,” he said during a Sunday gathering of the veterans of the eight-year Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in the southeastern Iranian city of Kerman.

 

“There is no will to fight the ISIL,” Soleimani said in a reference to the US-led coalition that purports to be targeting ISIL targets inside Iraq and Syria.

 

He also described the ISIL terror group as a “great plague,” which should be countered.

 

The group, whose members slaughter human beings in cold blood while chanting religious slogans, is a big threat, he said.

 

On May 17, the ISIL militants managed to bring Ramadi under their control.

 

The Popular Mobilization forces, one of the volunteer groups who have joined the Iraqi army, were dispatched to Anbar after Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi called on them to join the fight to drive the Takfiri militants out of Ramadi.

 

Adrian Edwards, a spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said on Friday that around 55,000 people had fled Ramadi since mid-May.

 

Iraq’s former national security advisor told Press TV on Sunday that most US fighter jets deployed to bomb terrorists in the Arab country return to their bases without engaging terrorist positions.

 

Mowaffak al-Rubaie sharply criticized the US-led airstrikes against the ISIL as ineffective, saying, "from where I sit in Baghdad, eight out of each 10" aircraft loaded with ammunition return to their bases without striking their targets. 

 

Elsewhere in his remarks, General Soleimani said, “Today, no one stands to take up the fight against this dangerous phenomenon (ISIL) but the Islamic Republic.”

 

Since August 2014, the US and some of its allies have been conducting airstrikes against what they say are ISIL positions in Iraq.

 

Some members of the US-led coalition also started bombarding ‘ISIL targets’ inside Syria in September last year without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

 

This is while many of the countries joining the so-called anti-terror coalition, such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been the staunch supporters of the Takfiri elements.

 

The ISIL terrorists currently control swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have committed terrible atrocities in both countries, including mass executions and beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.

Iraq is waiting for another country to come in: spend billions/trillions of dollars, lose their soldiers lives, and save their country! Then leave!

 

All without costing them a thing!

 

A nation of cowards and greedy men who care nothing for the welfare of it's own people or the country!

 

All the time, effort & expense of handing them freedom is forgotten because another threat has come across their borders. They demanded that America leave their country & now they want us to return. Again without compensation or agreement for a long term military presence.

 

WOW Why should we lift a finger to help?

 

Invite Russia or Iran to bring their troops in! Oh yeah, they will not just pack up & leave when you request it huh? LOL
