The Iranian foreign minister has lambasted the ‌B_Team for pushing America into wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and for plotting against the Iranian people who sympathized for 9/11 victims and held candlelight vigils for them.

Iran Press/Iran news: Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in a new tweet titled: "Fighting to the last US soldier", on the 18th anniversary of 9/11 attacks, has chided the B_Team for egging America into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and for plotting and scheming against the Iranian people who sympathised for 9/11 victims and lit candles for them as the twin towers burned in New York.

Zarif also fired a broadside at US secretary of state Mike Pompeo by tweeting: "No wonder 9/11 still haunts Secretary Pompeo."

Zarif tweeted on Wednesday, FIGHTING TO THE LAST US SOLDIER Same #B_Team which, 1) provided most 9/11 terrorists and 2) pushed the US into the Afghan/Iraq quagmires is now plotting war thru #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians who held a candlelight vigil as WTC was on fire. No wonder 9/11 still haunts @SecPompeo.

Exactly 18 years ago, two planes hijacked by 9/11 terrorists went straight into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York on 11 September 2001, causing a massive fire. A third hijacked plane targeted the Pentagon headquarters in Washington DC.

The incidents killed about 3000 people, and set the stage for the US military invasion and occupation of Afghanistan just a month later, in October 2001.

The US president at the time George W. Bush ordered the war on terrorism citing the suspicious 9/11 terror attacks as his "casus belli".  Bush also ordered the disastrous invasion and occupation of Iraq just eighteen months later, on March 2003.

Contrary to what successive US administrations have claimed, America has been unsuccessful in its war against Terrorism which has dragged on for at least 18 years, devastating two Middle Eastern nations, but failing to achieve any of its objectives in its war of choice.

The Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has coined a new term, the B_Team, to describe four well-known extremist war-mongering politicians and autocratic Arab rulers. They are the former US National Security Adviser, John Bolton, the prime minister of the Israeli regime, Benjamin Netanyahu, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Bin Salman, and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammad Bin Zayed.
