EXCLUSIVE: Pompeo Reveals Trump Admin’s Wide-Ranging Plan to Combat Iran, Deal Death Blow to Nuclear Deal

In discussion with Free Beacon, secretary of state explains how he is galvanizing the globe against the Islamic Republic

Secretary of State Mike PompeoRIYADH, Saudi Arabia—The Trump administration is waging a multi-pronged effort to thwart Iran's expansion across the Middle East, including efforts at the United Nations to ensure global sanctions come back into effect in what would mark a final death blow for the landmark nuclear deal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the Washington Free Beacon in an exclusive and wide-ranging interview.

The Coming Middle Eastern Storm

The next war between Israel and Hezbollah will be a region-wide fight, with Iraq playing a key role

The greatest danger is that the Israeli-Iranian conflict spills into Lebanon, triggering another war between Israel and Hezbollah.

Trump Sanctions Hezbollah Agents in Lebanese Government

Members of terror network doing 'Iran's bidding'

The Trump administration on Tuesday issued a bevy of new sanctions on a terror network of Lebanese Hezbollah agents who have been performing "Iran's bidding" across the region, according to the Treasury Department.

Lebanon = Hezbollah

That equation includes the Lebanese military

Lebanon has, sadly, become a synonym for Hezbollah, both in the military and political arenas.

The Pro-Palestinian Charade

Too many activists who claim to support Palestinian rights only care about attacking Israel

Pro-Palestinian activism is too often a charade, masquerading as an effort to protect human rights when, in reality, it is a campaign to attack Israel, the Jew among nations.

The West’s Blind Approach to Hezbollah

Western states are bolstering the terror group by artificially separating its political activities from its militancy and by supporting Lebanon's military

It is shameful and strategically incompetent not to ban Hezbollah in its entirety. And it is the height of folly to continue supporting the Lebanese military when it collaborates so closely with Hezbollah.

The Folly of Supporting Lebanon’s Military

Washington can't seem to acknowledge that the Lebanese Armed Forces and Hezbollah are allies

The U.S. needs to stop providing aid to the Lebanese Armed Forces, which collaborates closely with Hezbollah and is not a check on the terrorist group's influence inside Lebanon.
