America, Britain, Israel Axis of Evil

TEHRAN, Jan. 15--The United States, Britain and the Zionist regime of Israel form the “axis of evil“ against the Muslim world and even against all of humanity, and want to create discord among Islamic countries, especially between the Shiites and the Sunnis.
In a meeting with Sudanese Defense Minister Abdel Rahim Mohammed Hussein and his accompanying delegation, Commander of the Islamic Revolution’s Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi viewed the Middle East situation as being “extremely sensitive, complicated and ominous“, ISNA reported.
“It is over three years that the Americans have militarily occupied Iraq, while today they have attained none of their goals, and they are at a loss as to whether to leave or stay in Iraq,“ he said.
Noting that Sudan is the largest African country in terms of landmass, the IRGC chief said, “While foreign colonizers, especially the British, long dominated Sudan, today the Americans and Zionists are the main enemies of the people and government of this land.“
He pointed out that the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam, was neither Shiite nor Sunni, for he killed both Shiites and Sunnis.
Safavi said, “We are not worried about the threats of America and the Zionist regime. In the event of any kind of aggression by foreigners, we have the capability to retaliate, while the political-security circumstances of the Americans and Zionists for opening a new front against Iran are not at all appropriate.“
The Sudanese defense minister said the American and Zionists’ new conspiracy is to create a division between the Shiites and Sunnis, and hopefully, like their other plans, this plan will also face defeat.

Trying to blame Sunni Shiite hostilities on the U.S., and perhaps looking towards the Saudis, which once again have confirmed their support for the U.S., now for Bush and his new Iraq stabilization plan.
