Iranian MP Says Iran Can Attack The White House Over Terrorist General Qassem Soleimani’s Death

on

Abolfazl Abutorabi, an Iranian MP, has threatened to attack the White House in response to a message from President Donald Trump where the Commander-in-Chief promised severe consequences if Iran escalates hostilities with the United States.

Abutorabi was responding to a question about how Iran should react to the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani during an American airstrike, according to The Independent.

“We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil. We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time,” Abutorabi said according The Independent story, which cited Iranian news agency ILNA.

Abutorabi made his statement as Trump promised to hit Iran hard if they retaliate against the US over the death of Soleimani.  His death was the result of his coordination to plot an attack against the United States while Iranian rebels were already attacking the US embassy in Iraq.

“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,” Trump tweeted over the weekend.

Trump went on.  “He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years.”

Abutorabi called Soleimani’s death “a declaration of war,” and that a swift, strong response was necessary.

What does he consider an attack on our embassy if not a declaration of war?

“When someone declares war, do you want to respond to the bullets with flowers? They will shoot you in the head,” he said.

Following Soleimani’s death, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said “harsh retaliation is waiting for the criminals whose filthy hands spilled his blood.” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also promised to “take revenge for this heinous crime.”

This is a joke.  The Iranians attacked our embassy, and they got what they deserved.  Now, they’re trying to act like the United States started it.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday that Soleimani’s death puts the entire region at the beginning of a “completely new phase.”

Speaking before thousands of supporters at a rally in southern Beirut, Nasrallah called the killing of Soleimani a “clear, blatant crime” that will transform the Middle East.

So, we’re supposed to take Hezbollah seriously now?  They’re a terrorist group.

The Independent’s international correspondent, Borzou Daragahi, doubted the likelihood of an attack on U.S. soil, noting that Abutorabi was known for inflammatory language and that Iran does not necessarily have the military capabilities of striking the U.S. with missiles.

Over the weekend, President Trump issued a his own warning, declaring that he has “52 Iranian sites” already targeted for strikes should Iran take any further action.

Members of the 290-seat Iranian parliament unanimously chanted ‘Death to America’ on Sunday while standing up in the middle of chamber to protest against the US killing of Iranian top general Qassim Soleimani.

WATCH:

I saw one of the guys at the front left missed a few of the chants.  I wonder if they’ll beat him to death for that?
