As Israel ramps up operations in retaliating against the cowardly Hamas terrorists who launched a deadly attack earlier this month, other players in the region are eyeing up the United States' potential involvement.
According to Breitbart, Iranian leaders, who undoubtedly smell weakness in the Biden administration, are making threats that they probably never would have dreamed of making under stronger presidents.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian was the latest to threaten the United States, stating that Iran is not afraid to launch further attacks against U.S. interests for supporting Israel's fight against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
The threat follows several attacks on U.S. military outposts in Syria and Iraq.
While U.S. forces have successfully fended off such attacks, there have been some injuries reported. Many believe it's only a matter of time before U.S. troops die, which would -- hopefully -- significantly increase the United States' response, which has been lackluster, so far.
The Iranian leader accused the United States of committing "genocide" against Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
"I say frankly to the American statesmen, who are now managing the genocide in Palestine, that we do not welcome expansion of the war in the region. But if the genocide in Gaza continues, they will not be spared from this fire," Amirabdollahian said recently at the U.N. General Assembly.
The Iranian foreign minister was referring to Israel’s carefully targeted bombing campaign against Hamas terrorists hiding behind human shields in Gaza, an operation that does not meet any legal or common-sense definition of “genocide.”
Israel has been so careful in its targeting of Hamas terrorists -- who use women and children as shields -- that it has actually been criticized for not taking drastic, immediate action.
To call that "genocide" is nothing more than Iranian clown propaganda, at best.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Hamas, a master of propaganda, has released several fake stories regarding the number of civilian casualties sustained -- all of which have been debunked.
Iran, however, is treating the stories as fact, which leads to the kind of statements made by its top diplomats.
The Iranian foreign minister turned reality on its head by claiming Hamas is a lawful “liberation” movement, even after it raped, murdered, tortured, and kidnapped more than 1,400 Israeli civilians in a hideous surprise attack on October 7.
Only time will tell if Iran is stupid enough to engage in serious war activities against the United States, which would undoubtedly draw in NATO allies and other forces.
