Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent a cryptic warning to Trump that gloated over his election loss and suggested that soon his life would be over.
Rouhani’s warning is alleged to have been over the killing of Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani.
“As I said after the martyrdom of Martyr Soleimani, I emphasize again that if you cut off Martyr Soleimani’s hand, we will cut off your leg from the region and we will continue the resistance until that day.”
“One of the effects of this stupid and disgraceful act was that Trumpism ended and in a few days, the life of this criminal will end and he will go to the dustbin of history, and we are very happy about this and we believe that the period after Trump will be a better condition for regional and global stability.”
The translation shows that Rouhani was talking about Trump’s personal life and not his political one. That should come as no surprise as it is what the Iranians have done ever since Jimmy Carter aided the ayatollahs in taking over Iran.
That also led to the taking of hostages who were held for 444 days and were only released just before Ronald Reagan took office.
That was just part of the accusation that Iran made, claiming that President Trump intended to attack Iran before Joe Biden would take office if elected.
They point to the flyover by B-52s that are nuclear ready that took place in the Gulf recently. It was just a show of strength maneuver that the US military makes every year to challenge unlawful claims of sovereignty.
A U.S. official told the AP that U.S. troops in Iraq are worried about what Iranian-backed militias might do in the lead-up to the anniversary of Soleimani’s assassination on January 3, 2020. Iran is planning events to mark the anniversary.
While Trump did blame Iran for rockets fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad on the Sunday before Christmas, warning that the U.S. would strike back if Iran or its proxies killed any American troops, the removal of the B-52 bombers and the aircraft carrier suggests the U.S. does not have a plan to strike Iran, unless the Islamic Republic provides provocation.
Iran-backed militias besieged the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad late last year, sparking a series of events that culminated in the Soleimani assassination. Soleimani led Iran’s terrorism efforts in the Middle East and has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers. His death arguably cleared the way for Trump’s historic deals between Israel and Arab states like the United Arab Emirates.
