Iran scores moral victories over US-Israel-Saudi axis – Part II
Everyone presumably knows the story of David and Goliath; everyone definitively knows how Uncle Sam has been trampling down the principles of Universal Truth and Justice to serve its own interest; everyone remembers the tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki when a power drunk nation destroyed a chunk of humanity and everyone knows how the US-Israel-Saudi triumvirate is crushing the innocent Palestinians in their own homeland.

The Al-Sauds, Chowdhry and the usurper of Holy Islamic lands are clandestinely supporting them. However, there is only one country left on this planet that had defied the might, challenged and almost defeated these perpetrators of cruelty morally and militarily in their own dens. It is the Islamic Republic of Iran. 

Writing five years after the Israel's attacks of September 11, 2001 in Lebanon, US military expert Anthony Cordesman published an account of the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict. "Preliminary Lessons of the Israeli-Hezbollah War." Cordesman made no secret of his modest conclusions. It provided a foundation for understanding the war from the Israeli point of view and it raised questions on how and how well Hezbollah fought. According to the book, Hezbollah officials would neither speak publicly nor for the record on how they fought the conflict. No details were given by them about their deployments, and will not discuss their future strategy. The conclusions are based on on-the-ground assessments conducted during the course of the war, on interviews with Israeli, American and European military experts. The overall conclusion contradicts the point of view being retailed by some White House and Israeli officials that Israel's offensive in Lebanon significantly damaged Hezbollah's ability to wage war. Just the opposite is true. From the onset of the conflict to its last operations, Hezbollah commanders successfully penetrated Israel's strategic and tactical decision-making cycle across a spectrum of intelligence, military and political operations, with the result that Hezbollah scored a decisive and complete victory in its war with Israel. 

"Israel lost the war in the first three days," one US military expert said. "If you have that kind of surprise and you have that kind of firepower, you had better win. Otherwise, you're in for the long haul." 

Hezbollah's military defeat of Israel was decisive, but its political defeat of the United States–which unquestioningly sided with Israel during the conflict and refused to bring it to an end–was catastrophic and has had a lasting impact on US prestige in the region.

According to a senior Iranian lawmaker, the United States and its allies have failed in Syria and the broader region. He credited Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's leadership for defeating Iran's "enemies" in foreign lands to safeguard the country's national security. "Despite all acts of sabotage, the signs of the defeat of America and Saudi Arabia in Syria and Yemen are evident," Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy committee, said in a meeting "Syria was the first bulwark of resistance. If it was broken, Lebanon and Iraq would have easily collapsed and the Islamic Republic's borders would have been seriously threatened." 

And yesterday, on 13th February, 2019, Iran has registered a great moral victory at the International Court of Justice as 'The International Court of Justice (ICJ)' has ruled that Iran has the right to recover two billion dollars in frozen assets in the US. In a ruling issued on Wednesday, the 15-member court in 'The Hague' said Tehran can proceed with a bid to recover the assets, which Washington says must go to victims of attacks blamed on Iran. The judges rejected the US' claims that the case should be thrown out because Iran had "unclean hands" from alleged links to "terrorism", and the international tribunal in The Hague did not have jurisdiction over the lawsuit.
