Iran will strategically and surgically respond to American aggression towards its people.
In an interview with CNN, the Iranian Ambassador to the UN, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, said that the murder of General Qasem Suleimani is tantamount to a Declaration of war. He stressed: “The response to military action is military action.”
National security adviser Robert O’Brien said any attempt by Iran to retaliate against the US for the elimination of Suleimani would be “a very bad decision.”
President Donald Trump issued a grave warning to Iran on Saturday, indicated the US will destroy Iranian interest in the region “very fast and very hard” if it retaliates for the targeted killing of the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force.
In true Trump fashion, he also tweeted that his administration had already targeted 52 Iranian sites, “some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture.”
Trump ordered over thirty-five hundred American soldiers into the region and thousands more on stand by should the violence continue to escalate.
