Jayakartapos An Iranian lawmaker on Tuesday offered a $3-million reward to “anyone who kills” US President Donald Trump to avenge the assassination of a top general, semi-official news agency ISNA reported.
Ahmad Hamzeh, a little-known member of the Majlis, made the offer on behalf of the people of Kerman, the hometown and final resting place of storied commander Major General Qasem Soleimani. “We will give $3 million to anyone who kills Trump,” Hamzeh, who represents Kahnouj county near the southeastern city of Kerman, was quoted as saying by ISNA.
He did not say who would pay the bounty offer, which comes a month ahead of a parliamentary election. Soleimani, one of the most popular public figures in Iran, was killed on January 3 in US drone strike outside Baghdad airport.
The Hamzeh’s announcement has shown how big Iranian people hate’s to the United States, and its could never be stopped. From these announcement, the United States both their citizens and their government including military apparatus will be targeted by the next Iran’s attacks to them.
Technically and basically, Iran has enough military capability to challenge the United States directly and indirectly through their proxy war actors such as Lebanese Hezbollah, Kata’ib Hezbollah (KAH) Shia militia, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps – Qods Force (IRGC-QF), it is one of the Shia Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and others Iran’s foreign fighters who had skilled during Syria and Iraq conflicts.
According to Al Arabiya magazine, the United States has ten military base in several their allies countries in Middle East. In Turki, the US has deployed 2,500 military personnel at Incirlik Air Base; In Syria, the US has deployed 800 troops and Air Base; In Jordannia, the US has 3,000 military personnel and air base; In Iraq, the US has stationed 6,000 their military personnel and air base; In Kuwait, the US has stationed 13,000 troops and Ali Al Salem Air Base; In Bahrain, the US has deployed 7,000 military personnel, air base and port for combat vessels; In Qatar, the US has deployed 13,000 troops and air base; In Saudi Arabia, the US has stationed 3,000; In Uni Emirat Arab, the US has sent 5,000 troops; In Oman, the US has deployed 606 troops and port of military vessels. In other words, the US has been sieged the Middle East regions with their military personnel.
Reading those strategic global environment, there is any possibility if Iran will attacks 10 countries in Middle East where the US military has stationed on there. If this predict true, the directly and indirectly war between Iran and the US will bother economic, security and political global situations. Iran has predicted to protect and to attack whatever vessels especially from the US and their allies which will sail in Hormuz bay.
I think Iran hate’s to the United States will never be stopped because Iran’s citizens love to General Solemaini did not burry for long time, because that, the US and their allies should ready to take and to anticipated the next deadly Iran’s attacks.
