"A thousand times bigger": Trump threatened Iran with retaliation in case of attack

Any Iranian attack on the United States will entail a retaliatory attack that will be 1000 times larger, said US President Donald Trump, commenting on information that Tehran is preparing to assassinate US Ambassador to South Africa Lana Marx.


According to Trump, Iran may be planning an assassination or other attack on the United States in response to the assassination of "terrorist leader Soleimani", but in this case, Washington will respond "a thousand times stronger." He stressed that the elimination of Soleimani was a response to the murder of the US military.

Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1000 times larger in scale!

- wrote Trump on his Twitter page.

Information about the allegedly preparing Iranian assassination attempt on the US Ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks was announced by Politico, citing sources in American intelligence. The reason for the impending assassination attempt is revenge for the US assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. According to the publication, information about the impending assassination appeared in the spring, but now "it has become more specific." The Iranian embassy in South Africa was allegedly involved in the preparation of the assassination attempt.

Some media outlets have suggested that Lana Marks was chosen by Iran as a victim for two reasons: she has known Trump well for over 20 years and she is Jewish.

      Trump can hit Iran, but only after winning the election, or strangle his own ambassador with the hands of a specially bought Iranian in order to hit Iran before the elections, bypassing Biden at a turn ... chances of success for making a decision! Well, the ambassador can only pray and just in case he needs to write a will! laughing

        Nothing prevents them, anything, any incident to declare an attack on Iran, and to begin to destroy another country.

        Whole blocks of walking - and women in hijabs and niqabs wrapped up to their eyes in rags and men in kufi and kandur. In South Africa, there are Muslim parties, and radical organizations advocating the creation of an Islamic state in South Africa. So, the kit is complete.

      Oh, how we know this! In the Donbas, the wreckage of the Malaysian Boeing has not yet reached the ground - Russia is already to blame. Underground diarrhea broke through - again Russia is to blame. But you never know what we are "to blame" for ... Ever since the days of Ivan the Terrible, when Columbus ran under the table without pants.

      Interesting - "Lana Marks" translates from american language human like "Franz Ferdinand"? It seems to me that I know exactly who will unleash the Third World War. And, what a coincidence, it was the one who really did not notice anything in the Second World War except looting in Europe. Well, maybe even the heroic operation "Cottage" to liberate the Kiska Island from Japanese troops by the US Army during the Pacific campaign - to lose 103 people killed, 230 wounded and ditch their own destroyer. Taking into account that the island was "defended" only by dogs abandoned by the Japanese. So fists itch to show their coolness. OH WELL...

        We are to blame for the fact of our existence, and for the fact that we did not fall apart in the 90s into separate principalities.
        The West, for the complete surrender of the USSR by the "communists", graciously allowed us to die on our own, the individual could even survive, but not more than a couple of tens of millions.
        And suddenly - we do not die and do not fall apart.
        They will not forgive us for this, a new campaign is coming for the final solution of the Russian question.
        Will we survive? Most likely yes, but again, millions of victims, and a rollback of development 50 years ago.

          May there not be millions of victims. They are not like us. They have it spelled out in the combat charter that if a soldier evaluates further resistance as useless, then it is preferable to surrender. In captivity, behave quietly, answer questions, without causing aggression from the enemy. For the life of a soldier is the highest value. Hence the American concept of the impossibility of conducting hostilities if, in response, it is possible to inflict "unacceptable damage." In particular, they have already considered that in the event of a global conflict with Russia, America will lose at least 13% of its population and about 20% of its infrastructure (tricky arithmetic, isn't it?). And therefore - you cannot fight.

          Have you read something like this somewhere?

          And further.
          I once looked through the statistics of US military operations in World War II. They NEVER fought unless there was at least a threefold, or better, a fivefold superiority in strength. So their strategy is Ukrainian "toad jumps" by the forces of Ukraine, Georgia and others. Let, like, Russian heels bite ... And the striped ones themselves hope to sit out for the Big Puddle. Only now is not the First World War and not even the Second will be - the Third. On our small Earth, there are no unattainable targets for Russian missiles.

      We would have held the action without noise and dust.
      The situation is exactly the opposite. Sources in American intelligence leaked information to Politico to prevent the assassination of Lana Marks, and to avoid a big war, the plans for which are hatched in a completely different place.

    Most likely just rhetoric! At the moment, the Americans have only one old aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf region. This is clearly not enough for a massive strike on Iran.

    Unless ... the Americans do not want to sacrifice the USS Nimitz (the oldest aircraft carrier in this series, which they planned to decommission in 2022) in order to start a full-scale war against Iran. A kind of new Pearl Harbor.

    So who doubts when there are "beautiful" and flying rockets almost at the speed of light. Therefore, I could say a million times. It is strange that information about the assassination attempt, which, if there is, must be secret, is voiced by the media. Probably in the United States today it is so accepted - the president's instructions through Twitter, classified information through the media. The guys have fun. The country is a mess, blacks put whites on their ears, and they are about a strike on Iran and the Russian-Chinese threat.

      The difference in potential is such that the United States, in principle, could throw caps at Iran if it wanted to.
      The question is different - will Iran, together with someone, inflict unacceptable damage on them, and what amount of damage is unacceptable for them?
      Definitely such would be the complete and rapid destruction of the US naval grouping in the region, but this is perhaps possible only with the use of nuclear weapons ...
      Even so, what does it mean for the United States to lose a dozen ships and tens of thousands of personnel in the name of the great goal of global domination?
      They can easily afford it.
      The US itself will not be affected in any way, neither industrial nor financial potential.

Iran can be everywhere. "Iran" is a religion that can be destroyed only by total genocide - this is the main reason why neither North Korea is bombed and Iran, as a country, will not dare. Because this is not at all the same as eliminating their former pocket dictators or wringing out pocket money from primary school students.

    Capitalism requires war to justify its existence. Trump feels that he should start a full-scale victorious war as soon as possible in order to knock the foam off the internal protest. Otherwise, the United States will choke on blood within its borders.

      Do you want to say that Erdogan and the Turkish government were personally involved in the murder of Andrei Karlov? Before whom did Russia wipe? Those who organized the attack on the SU-24 and the assassination of the ambassador, just like you personally, expected that Putin would declare war on Turkey. But the "planners" did not grow together.
      In your post you can see the annoyance that the calculation on the primitive of Putin was not justified.
      As for the topic of the article, about the allegedly preparing Iranian attempt on the life of the US Ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks, so the main interest in this venture is Israel. And the hopes are the same - for Casus belli.
      To force Trump to solve YOUR problems with Iran. But the result will be the same.
      Relying on Trump's primitiveness will be disappointing. The era of endless wars for foreign interests is over for the United States. Trump announced this out loud.

        There will be no, here Russia is nearby in Syria and we have our interests there. Yes, and Iraq is already "tired" of the democracy imposed by the United States .. How many people have already died there!
        And who is in the way of Iran, everyone knows and is silent ...

          Correctly Nevolnik, will not. There will be war if the "demonokrats" overthrow Trump.

          good
          Those who are hindered by Iran were planning the assassination of US Ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks. And this is not the USA.
          Representatives of those "who are hindered by Iran" on the VO website are diligently minus you. hi

      In London, representatives of the "deep state", which are being fought by Donald Trump's team.
      Donald Trump:
      I have done a phenomenal job. What am I doing? I am fighting "deep state", I am fighting this swamp. And I said I was doing it, I was exposing it. I think if everything continues the same, and if it continues to go this way, I have a chance to break the "deep state". This is a vicious group of people, this is very bad for our country ..

      Key phrase: "This is a vicious group of people."

    Trump desperately needs to be shown what a tough defender of demonocracy he is in the free world.
    Elections are just around the corner, and no one has yet been sacrificed to American freedom ...
