BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The U.S. will increase their pressure on Iran in Syria and the region, the U.S.’ envoy to Syria James Jeffrey told reporters during a phone conference on Wednesday.

Citing Jeffrey’s phone conversation, the Associated Press said that the U.S. diplomat claimed America will be financially pressuring Iran and also contesting their activities in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.

According to Jeffrey, the U.S. is “secondly contesting more actively Iran’s activities particularly in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.”

This is not the first time that Jeffrey has hinted that Washington is shifting their focus to combating Iran in Syria.

Last month, the U.S. diplomat told reporters that Washington is also inside Syria to get rid of the Iranian threat in the region.

Message for the US envoy. Both Iraq and Syria, sovereign countries have invited Iran in to help rid their respective countries of ISIS, ISIL, and other foreign-backed jihadi groups.
The USA, on the other hand, was neither invited in by the Syrian Government nor the UN and certainly wasn’t authorized by them to illegally occupy Syrian territory. In other words, the USA is hypocritical much when it comes to international norms.

Totally right ! Although USA-Israel do not care about other people opinions, so far.

The US hypocrisy is out of this world and out of control. They accuse nations of allegedly interfering in US affairs yet they openly invade sovereign lands under false pretense to ceate vasal states. Furthermore, the main reason for their illegal occupation which they openly admit to now is to contain Iran at the behest of the zio state.
