    Iran, Hezbollah left off US terror threat listing

    Iran and Hezbollah were left out of an annual terrorism threat assessment report offered in late February to the US Senate by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Iran and Hezbollah had been fixtures on the annual report before 2015.

    Iran’s efforts to fight Sunni extremists, including the so-called Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS), were touted in the unclassified version of the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Communities, released recently.

    While a US-led coalition has targeted Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the report noted Tehran’s push to keep “ISIL from gaining large swaths of additional territory” in Iraq. Iran is allied with both the Iraqi and Syrian governments. So, with the US, it has a common foe in Islamic State.

    Looks like US is cosy with Iran and wants it to take over as the predominant power in Middle East.

    The US has already wasted its time in Middle east which gave China unbridled freedom to grow and dominate , Now US wants to turn its attention towards Asia proper so the Asian pivot . US is probably going to remain in Asia for the next 20 to 30 years so they want to keep middle east balanced with Iran , Arabs and Israel balancing each other out . No wonder Iran is dominating it , it is already present in 4 capitals in middle east and will dominate middle east for the foreseeable future unless US intervenes. US wants Iran to dominate to balance out the Arabs.
