Terrorism has been found to have its hooks in some of the countries and has been tolerated if not supported by some of them. 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. The international community has been trying to get Iran to help in fighting the vice but the efforts have been mainly fruitless all along.
Some of the ways Iran has been found to support terror is by funding terror groups, training the militant groups, giving them refuge and even providing weapons and equipment of mass destruction to them. This only goes to strengthen the terror groups which in turn makes the terrorist attacks a lot more worse. Terror attacks keep getting smarter and the damages caused even worse as time goes by and Iran is empowering this instead of fighting it.
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? There are a lot of reasons and aspects that lead to people and a country such as Iran. It is crucial to consider that Iran has clause in the constitution that indicates how they would want to transform the world.
Iran has also been funding terrorism to also overcome its enemies and it is a known fact. It is vital to understand that Iran has been funding terror groups with the goal of having political strength. 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 reason why Iran was named top state sponsor for terrorism is because it is behind about 100,000 militant groups in the world. Iran’s closest militant ally is a Lebanese terror group that is known as the most skilled group in the world. This relationship goes back in the day in 1980 when the militant group was began. Iran was their go to when they needed weapons and they got the very best arms in the world. The money they received from Iran amounted to about $100 million every single year.
Iran considers Syria their only state ally in the Arab nations and in the world. Iran makes sure that this alliance is protected by supporting Syria at all costs. Without this support, the Syrian regime would not be what it is. Another thing Iran does is support the families of those soldiers who are slain in war so that their financial needs are met.
