(PatriotHeadline.com)- Iran doesn’t seem to be getting the message that the United States won’t back down, with leaders of the terrorist-supporting nation warning that they are prepared to respond to United States’ military pressure.
General Hossein Salami, a top commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, told a ceremony at Tehran University on Friday that they are prepared to hit back at the United States. The ceremony commemorated the first anniversary of a drone strike that killed terrorist Revolutionary Guard General Qassem Soleimani. The drone strike was ordered by President Donald Trump and occurred on January 3, 2019.
Last year, Iran initially responded to the targeted strike—which didn’t murder innocent people unlike former President Barack Obama’s drone strikes—by launching a ballistic missile on a military base in Iraq. The strike injured roughly 100 American troops, in what almost triggered a war between the United States and Israel.
President Donald Trump also warned in recent days that if a single American is harmed by Iranian bombs, he would hold Iran accountable.
“Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets,” the president said on December 23.
…Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.

“Three rockets failed to launch. Guess where they were from: IRAN. Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq…” he added.
The president offered some “friendly health advice” to Iran, saying that if one American is killed, he will “hold Iran responsible.”
During the recent ceremony at Tehran University, Salami hit back at the president without mentioning the United States by name.
“Today, we have no problem, concern or apprehension toward encountering any powers,” the Iranian general said. “We will give our final words to our enemies on the battlefield.”
In attendance at the event were top officials from Syria, Palestine, and Lebanon.
They sure keep good company, huh?
During the same ceremony, Brig. Gen. Esmail Ghaani, who replaced terrorist leader Soleimani, also said that Iran was prepared to confront global powers and warned the “freedom seekers” that “inside your own home, there might be those who want to respond to the crime that you committed.”
With Iran threatening terror attacks within the United States and Joe Biden threatening to take the White House hostage off the back of a compromised election, the free world looks to be in for a bumpy four years ahead.
