The killing of the commander of the Al-Quds division of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Kassem Sulejmani, can be compared to a dynamite saber thrown into a barrel of gunpowder.
This statement was made by the main opponent of Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election, Democrat Joe Biden.
“President Trump has just thrown a dynamite saber into a barrel of gunpowder,” Biden said, urging the head of the White House to “explain to the American people a strategy that should ensure the safety of soldiers and embassy staff,” as well as American interests in the region.
The situation was also commented on by Democratic senator Chris Murphy. He noted that Suleimani was indeed recognized as an enemy of the United States.
“That is not the question. The question is: did America just without the approval of Congress kill the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly unleashing a potential regional armed conflict? ”, The democrat wrote on a social network.
Republican Senator Lindsay Graham, in turn, did without criticizing Trump, thanking the president for “standing up for America.” “I appreciate President Donald Trump’s decisive action against Iranian aggression,” he said.
As News Front previously reported, the American armed forces carried out a resonant and extremely provocative attack, the victim of which was the commander of the elite Iranian unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Al-Quds Kassem Suleimani. The blow was inflicted by personal order of President Donald Trump, allegedly with the aim of “protecting US personnel abroad.” The situation was commented on by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, calling the assassination of the military commander “an act of international terrorism”.
