    Trump warns Iran of counterattack after reports of plot against US ambassador

    Trump warns Iran of counterattack after reports of plot against US ambassador

    By Kenneth Garger
    September 15, 2020

    President Trump on Monday night warned Iran of a counterattack “1,000 times greater in magnitude” after reports the Iranian government may have hatched an assassination plot against a US ambassador to avenge the killing of Qassem Soleimani.

    “According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering caused over so many years,” Trump tweeted.

    “Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!” the president wrote.

    Politico reported on Sunday, citing two unnamed government officials, the existence of intelligence reports about an Iranian plot to assassinate Lana Marks, the US ambassador to South Africa.

    The plot is seen as a possible effort by Iran to retaliate against the Trump administration for the killing of Soleimani, a former top general, in a US drone strike in January.

    Good! Strong warnings are one of the best defenses against pending actions. And the cheapest!

    Talk tough, and carry a big stick. ... or a cruise missile or two, or three.

    I think the mullahs should REALLY think twice about doing anything that could give this president an excuse to let off some steam He might give them the hell he'd like to be giving his political enemies!

    Iran should have been dealt with years ago

    Iran is just itching to strike back at the US, and no doubt they will. Perhaps Iran's supporters here in the US government are assisting them in this endeavor.

    I would have kept everything quiet, letting only the Ambassador, and her security detail know what is going on.

    Then, do all possible to protect her, with an army of "Agents," some of whom would be tasked with capturing or killing any suspected Iranian agents.

    Would be wonderful to bring one of the greasy motherfuckers to America, try him, and execute him. All televised.

    Of course once the Iranians assassinate an American official, we can pretty much retaliate in any way we see fit. As long as Trump is in office. Biden lacks the nads, while most of his party would celebrate!

    (But, then again...the DEMOCRATS are a far greater threat to our existence than the Mullahs of Persia...)
