Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei took to Twitter to celebrate his country’s attack on American bases in Iraq, hinting that more retaliation against the US may be on the way.
As The Daily Mail reports:
Iran‘s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei today declared it had given its enemy America ‘a slap in the face’ after pounding two Iraqi bases containing US troops with a stream of ballistic missiles.
The Muslim cleric addressed the nation in Tehran and hinted at more attacks saying last night’s military retaliation for the assassination of his top general Qassem Soleimani is still ‘not sufficient’ revenge.
Ayatollah Khamenei said: ‘Last night we slapped them on the face. When it comes to confrontation, military actions of these kinds are not enough. The corrupt presence of the US should come to an end’…
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, a branch of the Iranian Armed Forces, reportedly said Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei was personally in the control center coordinating the attacks.
Khamenei’s attack resulted in no US or Iraqi casualties, so the Ayatollah may be bluffing. But if he isn’t and carries out more attacks on US forces that results in casualties, President Trump will likely be poised to deliver a punishing and crushing strike against his forces.
