With Nuke Deal, Iran Set to Become a Future World Power: Pepe Escobar

With the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 nations finalized at last, Tehran will be able to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. According to Sputnik contributor Pepe Escobar, the agreement could also prime the Islamic Republic to become "one of the powers of the future."

"Remember that in the past few days, [the US] was backtracking. And Obama, roughly a week ago, was saying the deal was less than 50/50," Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar told Radio Sputnik.

Yet, despite the uncertainty, negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 Nations – including China, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Germany – resulted in a comprehensive agreement.

Isis in Palmyra

Isis in Palmyra: The two images that show what the so-called 'Islamic State' is doing to thousands of years of human knowledge

They are the images that show how far Palmyra has fallen. Once famous for its annual cultural festival, the UNESCO world heritage site was the backdrop for a video released by Isis this weekend purporting to show the murder of 25 Syrian soldiers.

When the Syrian government’s forces fell back and Isis captured the city on 20 May, concerns were divided between the ancient Roman ruins left behind and the civilians and captive soldiers who faced a massacre, according to Adam Withnall, the Independent.

US ‘created ISIL for sake of Zionism': Ex-CIA contractor

The United States is seeking to have a “never-ending war” in the Middle East which would make the countries there unable to stand up to Israel, says former CIA contractor Steven Kelley.

“The purpose of creating this group [ISIL] is to have a never-ending war in the region that serves several purposes, obviously, it’s going to break apart the countries and disrupt the people and reduce their ability to stand up to Israel,” he told Press TV on Tuesday.

Kelley went on to say that “the other thing is providing the constant flow of orders for weapons from the military-industrial complex back home, which of course is feeding a lot of money to the senators that are pushing for these wars.”

A new report said the Pentagon is paying monthly stipends to the so-called “moderate rebels" in Syria who are being trained to fight the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

ISIL is doing exactly what US wants: Activist

The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group was created by the US and does what exactly Washington wants it to do, says political activist Seth Rutledge.

“ISIS, in my opinion, is largely a creation of US intelligence and is basically doing what exactly the US wants it to do,” Rutledge told Press TV on Thursday.

The terrorists are “attacking governments that the US has geopolitical issues with, in Syria, the government of Iraq,” he said, noting “these are countries with oil that have oil roots or oil pipelines that the US wants to control and ISIS is doing a great job of destabilizing those areas, preventing pipelines and attempting to control the flow of energy from those countries.”

He went on to say that “the US has plenty of intelligence in that region, they’re constantly watching these guys (ISIL terrorists).”
