IRAN VOWS REVENGE: General’s Successor Says ‘Actions Will Be Taken’ to Avenge US Airstrike

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.06.20

The successor to Iranian General Qassem Soelimani vowed to avenge the US airstrike that resulted in his death over the weekend; saying Tehran will ultimately “get rid of America from the region.”

“I promise to continue martyr Soleimani’s cause as firmly as before with the help of God, and in return for his martyrdom we aim to get rid of America from the region,” said new Quds Force General Esmail Ghaani.

“God the Almighty has promised to take martyr Soleimani’s revenge. Certainly, actions will be taken,” he added.

President Trump confirmed Saturday evening that the United States military is currently targeting 52 Iranian sites for a potential strike should Tehran attack American personnel or assets in the region.

“Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian protesters. He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that 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. The USA wants no more threats!” posted the President on Twitter.

AMERICA RESPONDS: US Airstrike Kills Iranian General, Other Military Officials at Baghdad Airport

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.03.20

The United States launched an airstrike Thursday evening that resulted in the death of an Iranian general and other military officials at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq, according to Fox News.

“The Pentagon confirmed Thursday evening that Trump had ordered the attack that killed Soleimani and other military officials at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq. Iran’s top ‘shadow commander’ was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more, the State Department said,” reports Fox.

“I think the Iranian leadership understands President Trump will take action. … We made very clear that these responses would be swift and decisive. We have now demonstrated that. I hope the Iranian leadership will see that and see American resolve and that their decision will be to de-escalate and take actions consistent with what normal nations do. In the event that they do not and they go in the other direction, I know that President Trump and the entire United States government is prepared to respond appropriately,” said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“He’s got hundreds of American lives and blood on his hands. What was sitting before us was his travels throughout the region, his efforts to make a significant strike against Americans. There would have been many Muslims killed as well, Iraqis and people in other countries. It was a strike that was aimed at disrupting that plot, disrupting further aggression and we hope, setting the conditions for de-escalation as well,” he added.

“What happened is a massive, huge win for our military, our military capability, our intelligence community, the President himself… The President was told -without any doubt- that American lives at that Embassy were at risk,” said Hannity.

“They got it done in record time… You have the Israelis, the Americans, the Egyptians, and the Saudis all in unison against Iran’s military aggression,” he added.
