After Ayatollah says Trump “can do nothing” about the Iranian Attack on our Embassy in Baghdad, U.S. Strikes
If you missed the statement by Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei to President Trump that: ‘You can’t do a damn thing!’ after Trump warned Iran would pay a heavy price for their attack on our Embassy in Baghdad, it is probably worth remembering it now, for both Americans and Iranians.
When Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei mocks President Trump after Trump threatened to make him pay a ‘big price’ for the Iranian attack on the U.S. embassy, it was a direct attack on the credibility and will to act of the United States.
Furthermore, the U.S. had actionable intelligence Iran was planning on attacking more U.S. targets throughout the Middle East.
Here are some helpful suggestions for Ayatollah Khamenei’s notes-to-self:
- Don’t kill Americans.
- Don’t plan more attacks, to kill more Americans.
- Don’t Threaten American Diplomatic Personnel in our Embassies.
- “No More Bengahzis” is not just a campaign slogan.
- Don’t Ridicule the U.S. Will or Capability to Act.
These are great lessons for any foreign adversary to learn about the United States.
Thank you, President Trump, for this teachable moment.
