Iran has issued a plethora of threats against the USA in recent minutes! Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), said that Iran’s revenge will lead to the end of the US military presence in Iraq:
„The assassination of martyred General Qassem Soleimani will be followed by a strategic revenge which will definitely put an end to the US presence in the region“.
According to Shamkhami, this will also be put down in writing and thus made verifiable:
„This statement should come in written since everyone will see its realization.“
The focus is obviously on the US military facilities closest to Iran:
According to Shamkhani, Iran is currently preparing 13 scenarios that will be a “nightmare” for the USA.
Meanwhile, according to the Iranian news agency “INRA”, the Iranian parliament has declared not only the US Department of Defense but also the Pentagon a “terrorist organization”. (Although according to media reports the Pentagon was not privy to the killing of Soleimani):
„The bill had previously designated US Central Command (Centcom) as terrorist organization, but today MPs added an amendment to the bill that widens the scope of the designation to include the entire US Department of Defense and affiliated entities.“
For the revenge measures, the Iranian parliament has made 200 million Dollars available to the “Quds militias”, whose leader was the killed Soleimani.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zaif is expected to travel to Washington on Thursday.He wants to attend the UN special session on the conflict between the US and Iran. Media reports according to which the US is refusing the Iranian Foreign Minister entry have not yet been confirmed. Zaif will probably travel to the World Economic Forum in Davos, which begins on January 21st.
It will be interesting to see whether Donald Trump will react to Iran’s threats today. Yesterday, Wall Street fully recovered from its pre-market losses. Today the stock markets are still relaxed. Albeit with a previous setback in the face of Iranian threats. Nevertheless, given the currently extreme parameters, a correction is in the air. Whether triggered by an act of revenge by Iran or some other event.
