A few of the nations in the world have been found to condone and tolerate terrorism. It is not a secret that Iran is one of these nations even though the same is not made obvious and it is not a well-kept secret either. Since it’s revolution, the international community has tried to get Iran to get rid of the terror groups and links unsuccessfully.
Iran has been funding, training militant groups, providing weapons and equipment and even giving refuge to terror groups which further empowers terrorism and results in humongous damages for all across the globe. The terror groups get more ammunition to hurt the world through their terrorist attacks. Instead of helping in the fight against terrorism, Iran is among the few nations that is making the terror groups become more brazen in their attacks and as a result, the damage has continuously becomes a lot worse.
It is important to take into the aspect of evil that is found in terrorism and it has all manner of results that causes huge destruction and loss of lives. Why do people and entities or groups engage in acts of terror? It is important to acknowledge the fact that there is a drive as to why people engage in acts of terror. Having a section that indicates that they desire to change the world, has been the greatest motivation as to why Iran engaged in acts of terror.
Overcoming and defeating its enemies, Iran has been financing acts of terror to do such acts. In the quest to gain political strength and power, Iran has been at the forefront financing terrorism to achieve a stronger political influence. In the Middle East, it has been fighting its neighboring states with an aim of gaining political strength and being at the top; above all its neighbors.
The number of terror groups that get support both military and financial from Iran is about 100,000. Iran’s closest militant ally is a Lebanese terror group that is known as the most skilled group in the world. This is not a new alliance because they go way back in the day when the group was started in 1980. Iran was their go to when they needed weapons and they got the very best arms in the world. Money was never a problem because this was sorted and in big amounts.
Syria is a true ally of Iran and could be their only ally in the world. This alliance is something important to Iran and it takes it very seriously. The current regime in Syria cannot stand without the support of Iran, if they would withdraw their support, the regime would fall. The families of the fighters are also sorted financially when their loved ones are slain in war.
