Trump threatened to destroy 52 objects in Iran, including cultural


Having committed the assassination of General Kassem Suleimani, commander of the special forces unit of the Iranian Al-Quds Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the United States has not stopped and continues to tense the situation in the Middle East.


On his Twitter page, US President Donald Trump wrote a message in which, in the event of any action by Tehran against the US military, he promised to strike at 52 targets in Iran, including those that “are very significant and important for Iran and Iranian culture ".

As follows from the record of the head of the White House, the number 52 symbolizes the number of American hostages captured in Iran in November 1979.

The fact that Trump's words are not an empty threat is evidenced by the begun transfer of American units to the Middle East.

In particular, the Bataan landing ship and the 26th Marine Expeditionary Battalion were sent to the region, and it is also planned to deploy 4 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division to Kuwait.

Threatening to attack Iran’s cultural and historical sites, Donald Trump put the United States on a par with the Islamic State *, which made the destruction of historical values ​​part of his policy and the Taliban *, which blew up ancient monuments in Afghanistan.

It should be noted that a public statement of such intentions is something new in the foreign policy of a country that positions itself as a source of democracy and freedom.

    I think that many people, on different sides, will not be indifferent to everything that happens in the last days and that can happen in the future. If I were, for example, a kind of mythical villain, I would have long ago been sitting somewhere in the taiga, or the jungle, under a Christmas tree, or a palm tree, with the phones turned off and the cigarettes extinguished. And in a whisper I would talk to squirrels, or parrots ..

      Katz Offers Iran to Surrender?
      Iran, a mountain semi-desert of 1.648.195 square kilometers with a very important geostrategic position.
      I wonder how many "mythical villains" are there per square kilometer and how many "bulls on a string".
      We'll see.

        Why Iran? I wrote: "on opposite sides"? Does Iran seem to have some kind of drones too? Are they talking about their unprecedented technological achievements? Of course we'll see?

          Definitely, Iran sits practically in a bag of allies with American bases and airfields.
          This means that all the movements of Iran in the region can be regarded as unfriendly actions against neighboring states, and confrontation will be primarily with them. And America itself, as always, is far away, but it will help everyone with what it can.

            But in general, are all these gestures necessary for Iran? After all, nobody almost recalls that the main questions are about Iran: the manic desire for dominance in the region, the most dangerous desire for all of mankind, in spite of everything, to possess nuclear weapons and criminal statements with consistent actions to attempt to destroy entire states? Does Iran necessarily need all this? And what, the world community must endure all this?

              But in general, are all these gestures necessary for Iran? ...

              They know better that there is no government there and there are plenty of organizations near it, and they have been living there for quite some time.

              manic desire for dominance in the region, ...

              It seems that they are not the only one so "manic" in that region.

              possess nuclear weapons and criminal statements ...

              Taking the example of some countries, such as Pakistan, North Korea and some "whole states", this aspiration is quite logical.

              ... should the world community endure all this?

              The world community all this somehow on the drum, the initiators of all this booth is a group in striped swimsuits.
              For example, for some reason, they are absolutely indifferent to the situation with human rights, for example, in the same Arab Emirates or Bahrain, etc.
              So, everything rests on other solutions to other problems and interests.

                - Yes, no one even remembers about human rights in the situation with Iran, the question here is the obvious desire for possession of nuclear weapons by not quite adequate figures who openly declare to the whole world their desire to destroy entire states. Does this bother you in any way? It's hard to stay here.

                  yeah, nobody remembers about human rights in the situation with Iran ..

                  Maybe this is some of the problems. Somehow very selectively they are sometimes remembered.

                  all over the world declaring their desire to destroy entire states.

                  I don’t think that someone will have a desire to bomb their neighbors with atomic charges, firstly, they can fly back (not just from neighbors), and secondly, wind roses, groundwater and other aspects of flora and fauna will make life a little poisoned.

                  Does this bother you in any way? It's hard to stay here.

                  We must seek a balance. Pumping the region with various weapons, no matter whose, American, Russian, or whatever, does not solve the problem, but only exacerbates it. How was it about the gun hanging on the wall?

          How many peaceful Iranians killed American generals with their UAVs and how many targets for destruction were outlined in the United States?

              Specifics can be about "victims around the world", the soldiers of the IRGC and the cause-and-effect relationship between them?

    On the Internet walks the question:

    - The simple question is, can Russia now hit with a rocket a motorcade of US Secretary of State Pompeo when he arrives in Kiev? That's the line the Americans erased.

    How would this question be conveyed to Trump?

    From the lips of US President Trump, a public statement was made about his intention to commit a war crime.
