Trump Issues Series Of Tweets Following Airstrike On Iranian General

“Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!” says Trump.

US President Donald Trump has issued a series of Tweets following the airstrike that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

The Tweets can be read below:

“Iran never won a war, but never lost a negotiation!”

“General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number….”

“….of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”

“The United States has paid Iraq Billions of Dollars a year, for many years. That is on top of all else we have done for them. The people of Iraq don’t want to be dominated & controlled by Iran, but ultimately, that is their choice. Over the last 15 years, Iran has gained more….”

“….and more control over Iraq, and the people of Iraq are not happy with that. It will never end well!”

Iran had clearly thought they would be able to continue to escalate without a response, since they had previously escalated without facing serious consequences. Iran’s ‘supreme leader’ had even Tweeted that the US “couldn’t do anything,” following the Iranian-orchestrated attack on the US Embassy in Iraq.

Well, looks like the US certainly could do something after all.
