ESCALATION: Iranians Threaten Retaliation as $80 Million Bounty is Put on President Trump’s Head

Iran is issuing threats toward the U.S. following the Soleimani strike.

Iran is repeatedly threatening the United States after Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was taken out with a drone strike outside of a Baghdad airport last week.

Brig. Gen. Esmail Ghaani, who has taken over the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps following Soleimani’s death, vowed retaliation against U.S. forces over the strike.

“Everyone should be patient a little to see the bodies of American soldiers all over the Middle East,” Ghaani said, according to Al Jazeera.

Ghaani had previously served as the deputy commander of the Quds Force since 1997, working at the side of Soleimani. This follows a similar threat from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who also promised revenge following the killing of Soleimani.

“Soleimani’s martyr’s death will make Iran more determined in its opposition to US imperialism, and in the protection of Islamic values,” Rouhani said.

“Without a doubt, Iran and other peace-loving countries in the area will take revenge,” he added.

In an even bolder threat, Iranian state TV has reportedly put a bounty of $80 million on the head of President Trump.

“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80million (£61million) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump,” an official state broadcaster said, according to en24.

Iranian MP Abolfazl Aboutorabi is also issuing threats against the U.S. people, vowing that retaliation will happen on American shores. He claims that not even the White House is off limits.

“We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil,” Aboutorabi said, according to the Iranian Labour News Agency.

“We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time,” he added.

Aboutorabi believes that the Trump strike was a declaration of war, and that there is no time for negotiation of de-escalation in the aftermath.

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

President Trump has made it clear that he will not back down regardless of anything the Iranians say or do. He has already prepared the next phase of strikes against the Islamic Republic, which he reserves the right to do when he sees fit.

A war with Iran is now looking like a real possibility, even though President Trump has repeatedly vowed to bring the troops home from the Middle East.

Marine Leader Claims That Catering to Feminism, LGBT Couples is Among ‘Most Important Matters’

This is what the military is focused on these days.

Published

on

Commandant Gen. David Berger, who is effectively the leader of the Marines, outlined priorities that he believes are the “most important matters for immediate execution” for arguably the most important branch of the U.S. Military.

Among them are catering to transgender personnel and giving more rights to same-sex couples.

Berger wrote in a series of tweets that the Corps must “revise the current parental leave policy to include parental leave for adoptive parents, to include same-sex couples.”

He also wrote that the Marines must “determine feasibility of identifying and recruiting for return-to-active-duty selected female Marines currently in the SMCR and IRR, with a focus on previously gender-restricted units and job specialties.”

Berger did not explain how feminist hiring mandates or catering to gay couples would actually make the Military a stronger or more formidable fighting force, but those goals are clearly now secondary in the age of political correctness.

The Marine Corps Times notes that there is already no difference in how same-sex couples are treated versus regular couples pertaining to military policy.

Maj. Craig Thomas, who works as a spokesman for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, said that the parental leave policy was updated in 2018. He told the Marine Corps Times that it “does not specifically use the terms ‘same-sex couples’, rather it incorporates gender neutral terms to ensure no Marine who rates parental leave is excluded.”

It appears that one of Berger’s top priorities for the Marines is just a platitudinous virtue signal to same-sex couples that does not even accomplish anything other than to codify support for the LGBT agenda into official military policy.

Berger’s mandate for a more feminist military, with more women in the ranks and serving as officers in the Marine infantry, would entail for certain gender-specific barriers to be removed. The only problem with this proposed change in policy is that women are often wholly unqualified for these roles.

The Marine Corps Times noted that only two women have ever passed the notoriously grueling Infantry Officer Course, and there are zero women leading infantry platoons in the Marines. In addition, only 31 women have ever graduated from Marine infantry training as of summer 2019.

“The numbers are the numbers,” the previous Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said to NPR at the time.

“If you want to compete for any MOS [military occupational specialty], man or woman, you compete, and if you meet the standard you earn the MOS,” he added.

The rigorous standards will likely be lowered at some point in order to fulfill the diversity mandate set out by Berger. Political correctness has taken hold over the U.S. Armed Forces, and America will inevitably be weaker and more vulnerable as a result.
