In an interview with Balkans Post, former US Army officer Joachim Hagopian said US Senator John McCain is using MEK, a terrorist cult, as his proxy war ally in the US covert war against the current Islamic Republic of Iran government.
Here’s the full transcript of the interview:
What’s your take on the recent meeting between Senator McCain and the head of the MEK, an anti-Iran terrorist group?
Joachim Hagopian: John McCain has been caught regularly meeting with various terrorist groups for a number of years now. So this is really nothing new. The warmongering US traitor represents the military industrial complex and central bankers that both manufacture and profit most from war. McCain has proven to be a compromised politician owned and controlled by Israel through both bribery and threat of blackmail. According to former CIA officer Robert David Steele, an FBI insider as well as a Homeland Security insider, McCain is among current high profile politicians on an FBI pedophile list. This helps explain why McCain so vociferously promotes war against Russia, Syria and Iran and protects and supports terrorist groups like ISIS that he helped create.
Regarding McCain’s shady history with the MEK, despite the MEK being a Marxist jihadist terrorist cult that for decades was listed by the US State Department as a terrorist group, having assassinated US military officers and other American personnel in the pre-Islamic Revolution 1970’s, McCain was bribed by MEK into lobbying Hillary Clinton’s State Department in 2012 to remove MEK from the terrorist list. In the same way that McCain has met with leaders of ISIS as the secret US proxy war mercenary ally fighting against Assad, Putin and Iran in Syria, McCain’s mid-April visit to Albania to tout MEK as heroic freedom fighters, McCain is using MEK as his proxy war ally in the US covert war against the current Islamic Republic of Iran government. MacCain is nothing more than a controlled tool for the Greater Israel Project.
Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said the meeting came of no surprise to him “since the US has supported various terrorist groups in recent decades.” Why does Washington support such groups?
Joachim Hagopian: The foreign ministry spokesman is absolutely correct. For nearly four decades the CIA led by the likes of such NWO globalists as George H.W. Bush and Zbigniew Brzezinski has been creating, training, arming, financing and supplying terrorists throughout the Middle East, Central Asia and Eastern Europe, beginning with the mujahidin in the late 1970’s fighting against the Soviet Army in the “graveyard of empires” Afghanistan. This operation morphed into the creation of Osama bin Laden’s rise to power and his so called al Qaeda terrorists. Bush senior and Bill Clinton redeployed al Qaeda as covert US proxy war allies to help balkanize Yugoslavia into a half dozen broken pieces for US imperialism, exploitation and control. And then of course “redeployed” them (in name and blame game only) in the Cheney-Bush Jr’s neocon-Israeli-Saudi false flag operation 9/11. Once again al Qaeda resurfaced as the war on terror enemy in Iraq and then with another name change as ISIS mercenary allies in both Syria and Iraq. Terrorist-R-US with support from Israel, Saudi Arabia (where the Wahhabi brand of terrorism originates), the smaller Gulf State monarchies, Turkey, and NATO-EU.
You can’t have the neocons’ “endless war on terror” without terrorists. That’s why Washington has both manufactured and continued decade after decade supporting the terrorists, all part of doing the dirty bidding of the Greater Israel Project to kill Muslims, steal Arab land (especially the Palestinians to this day), keep Arabs divided, conquered and fighting amongst each other (i.e., exploiting the Sunni-Shia conflict) in order to maintain Jewish State hegemony in the Middle East and its genocidal apartheid policy against the Palestinians, and of course continue stealing Middle Eastern oil. The US-Israel criminal enterprise could never get away with all this exploitation, violence and destruction without a so called designated enemy. So for the US and Israel to continue pretending that their longtime mercenary savages are their supposed enemy and not their proxy war allies is a hideously shameful joke. And since the neocons’ pre-9/11 “seven nations in 5 years” regime change list has Syria and Iran still marked as unfinished business. The very nations that are actually successfully opposing and beating the terrorists – Russia, Syria and Iran – are the actual biggest US enemies, regardless of the presidential figurehead puppet sitting in the White House, and regardless of whatever false campaign promises were made to the contrary.Trump’s recent missile bombing of the Syrian airfield after blaming Assad for another chemical false flag attack confirms this fact. The US will never join Russia and Syria to rid the world of ISIS and various other terrorist groups like al Nusra, al Qaeda and MEK because their “great game” of hegemonic violence and forever war absolutely depends on the terrorists. Finally, the globalist agenda is to utilize terrorists to destabilize the entire world, blame the Eastern powers Russia, China and Iran in order to trigger World War III, co-timed with the global economy collapse as its grand strategy to bring about one world government tyranny.

The US and EU had listed the MEK as a terrorist group, but later, it was removed from the lists. What does that tell us?
Joachim Hagopian: It tells us that MEK is being used as an Israel-US Empire pawn in the global chessboard game of hegemonic dominance and control, like ISIS and al Qaeda as a proxy war ally in the not-so-covert war against Iran and its allies Russia and Syria. Again, Terrorism-R-US.
Many US politicians have received money from the MEK in exchange for publicly expressing their support for the terrorist group. How would this impact Washington’s policies towards Tehran?
Joachim Hagopian: Aside from McCain, the list of bribed fellow US politicians is long, including Elaine Chao, Trump’s current Transportation Secretary (and wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell) who was paid $50,000 for a 5-minute speech, Trump advisor-ally former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, neocon warmonger and unofficial Trump advisor John Bolton, former House Speaker and Trump advisor Newt Gingrich, former Energy Secretary Bill Richardson, and former US Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. All this tell us is that way too many US politicians are up for sale to the highest bidder.
The impact is clear, it reinforces the ammo that’s been used against Iran ever since the 1979 Revolution. Be it through economic sanctions, warmongering threats, jingoistic rhetoric or weaponized propaganda, the crime cabal in Washington has been at war with Iran for nearly four decades, and as a strong ally of Russia and China as well as Syria, Tehran will only continue to be targeted in the Empire crosshairs.

According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh, MEK members were trained in the United States from 2005 to 2009 under former President George W. Bush. Do you regard this as a serious threat to Iran?
Joachim Hagopian: Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, out of the 17,000 Iranians that have died from terrorist assaults, 12,000 are believed to have been committed by the MEK. And with the longtime support of US Empire and its brutal slaughter of 4 million Muslims and 30 million more humans around the globe since World War II, yes I would say that MEK poses a serious threat to Iran. Any independent nation not under US direct control is deemed an enemy inside the warped unipolar world of the neocons in charge of US foreign policy for over two decades.
