Iran accuses U.S. of Using Weather Weapons
The head of Iran’s cultural heritage and tourism organization believes that in addition to economic sanctions, the West is launching another kind of ‘soft war’ on the Islamic republic.
Speaking at a ceremony to introduce the nation’s new meteorological department chief, Hassan Mousavi said that he was “suspicious about the drought in the southern part of the country”.
He went on to accuse the West as using ‘technology’ to influence the nation’s climate, saying sand storms, droughts, and other extreme weather were the result of an unspecified method of war. He said the West as using ‘technology’ to influence the nation’s climate, “sand storms, droughts, and other extreme weather were the result of an unspecified method of war Iran’s southern region has been hit by sand storms that engulfed several cities, caused by numerous droughts”
His argument is not uncommon.
Last year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Western countries of devising plans to “cause drought” in Iran.
And Hassan Mousavi said “According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump water on their own continents.” ‘They prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran.’
