Newt Gingrich urges US to use Special Forces to ‘sabotage’ Iran’s Gas Infrastructure
In an interview with Al Jazeera’s Avi Lewis Newt Gingrich said targeting Iran’s refinery would spark an economic crisis that would destabilise the government in Tehran. He said the US should “use covert operations … to create a gasoline-led crisis to try and replace the regime”.
“I think we have a vested interest, the world has a vested interest, in a responsible Iranian government, just as we have a vested interest in a responsible North Korean government,” he said.
Gingrich said that such a tactic to destabilise would only be “one piece out of many”.
“I think that the Reagan strategy in Eastern Europe in the late 1980s is the right strategy: we use economic, diplomatic, psychological pressures to try to change the regime.”
