Iran's President calls airstrikes on ISIS 'theater,' says broader campaign needed

September 26th, 2014
02:12 PM ET

Click here for part two of Amanpour's interview with President Rouhani, and here for part three.

By Mick Krever, CNN

(CNN) - Airstrikes against ISIS militants are a "psychological operation," not a military one, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Friday.

"It is a common threat for all of us," he said. "And this requires a unison effort from all of us."

"We need a vast campaign of operations ... the aerial bombardment campaign is mostly, I would say, a form of theater, rather than a serious battle against terrorism."

    I watched the program with Christana and the President of Iran.

    It would have been appropriate and interesting that the following question be put to the President. "Considering that South Korea, Finland, and many other countries, including the U.A.E. have successful nuclear programs sanctioned by the I.A.E.A., why can Iran not fall in line and accept the same conditions?"

    Both the Shia militias in Iraq and Iran and Sunni ISIS or Taliban have the same radical ideology that beheading the opposition and both belong to the dark side of history.
    This ideology must be isolated and replaced by the moderate ideology belong to the century 21.

    The Iran islamic regime control Iran under the islamic law like SIS.
    They force women to put the head cover and jail and torching or even executing the iranian people for listening to the music or putting a comment in the website or reading a forbidden book or even showing happiness! ,
    The clips from inside Raqqa by the hidden camera looks like inside iran.
    The region must be cleaned up from all the radical islamic ideology supporters including Iran Shia regime and Islamic sunni ISIS and Taliban.

    Iran is one of the few countries having the guts to stand up to the NATO terrorist regime, and is being a victim of propaganda for that.

    Amanpour is such an Iranian lover and an Arab hater.

    She was told a hundred times that she is not welcome in any Arabic speaking country ever again.

    I do believe all the ideas you have offered to your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
