Iran Plays Its Cards Well To Get Back At Trump

Iraq is coming under the firing line, as US troops were attacked via missiles fired from Iran at the Baghdad base. It is confirmed that Iran did fire a series of ballistic missiles at two Iraqi bases housing US troops in a major escalation that brought the two longtime foes closer to war.

Probably, pre-empting an offensive, the Iraqi lawmakers earlier this week, demanded that the US withdrew its battalion of 5000 from Baghdad.  Both the US and Iraqi military spokesperson have confirmed no casualties.

An adviser to the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted saying any adverse military actions by the US would be met with all-out war in the region. A senior official at the Iranian supreme leader’s office has called this as a trailer to the real action movie they are directing against the United States.

It is worth noting that unlike Trump, Iran is still holding its ground and has not come out with an all-out offensive. Mr. Donald Trump’s rather egoistic action has been criticized by the Democrats back in Washington.  His leadership does not look prudent, but full of loopholes that show his lack of judgment of what his actions will make of the future of America.

Iran’s offensive is being called a slap of the American face. It is also being termed as the first-ever attack in recent years where Iran has attacked Washington directly without the use of any of its proxies in the region. It thus raises the chances of open conflict erupting between the two enemies, which have been at odds since Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iran’s foreign minister has communicated Tehran’s intent “We are not seeking escalation or war but we will defend ourselves against any aggression.”

Trump chooses to ignore the mounting tension with its allies. The pro-Iranian factions in parliament are at work in Iraq. They obviously don’t want to anger their biggest political funder. Meanwhile, Germany and Canada have also announced plans to move some of their soldiers in Iraq to neighboring countries.

For the first time, America is also being sanctioned.  Iran’s parliament is known to have recently passed an urgent bill declaring the US military’s command at the Pentagon and those acting on its behalf in Soleimani’s killing be treated as “terrorists,” subject to Iranian sanctions. Seeking this as an opportune moment, Tehran has hit back on Trump’s April decision to sanction the Revolutionary Guard as a “terrorist organization”.
