- Has Trump sold out? It depends what you perceive as Trump’s objectives when he ran for office. If he starts war against Iran to protect America’s hegemonic interests, protect the US dollar hegemony … some would say he has not sold out. For me, the question is unnecessary.
- His statement that by assassinating Soleimani it is to prevent war is BULLSHIT! If he really wants to end war then he should stop the Zionist Israel for agitating for war. He should also end America’s war against Syria, end America’s support for ISIS, Al Qaeda …. etc. The killing of Soleimani, illegal under international law, is an act of war. It is the path to war. To argue that it is to prevent war, is NONSENSICAL.
- Trump Says US Will Strike 52 Iranian Sites ‘VERY FAST & VERY HARD’ If Tehran Moves to Avenge General’s Death
US President Donald Trump says the US military has identified 52 sites of importance to Iran and its culture, which its ready to strike if Tehran targets US citizens or assets to avenge the killing of its top general.
Unleashing yet another dire warning to Iran, Trump appears to have responded to a recent statement by a senior commander within the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), who said earlier on Saturday that Iran had identified 35 vital US and Israeli targets in the region “a long time ago.”
“If Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have… targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD,” Trump tweeted. Trump did not specify which sites the Pentagon had placed on its hit list, saying only that some of the targets are “at a very high level.”
