On January 2nd, the United States engaged in military operations in Baghdad, Iraq which killed the leader of the Iranian Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, as well Iraqi militia and Hizbollah leader in the region Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
The Quds Force is the clandestine and overt military arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), an inherent part of the largest state sponsor of terrorism on the planet – Iran.
In response to this action, many U.S. officials spoke out against the President’s authorization of this military operation.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN) tweeted, “We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization.”
Obama official Ben Rhodes stated, “Trump may have just started a war with no congressional debate.”
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) said over the weekend, “We cannot stay silent as this lawless President recklessly moves us closer to yet another unnecessary war.”
Democrat Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders said killing Soleimani is a “dangerous escalation that brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a statement saying, in part, “Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America — and the world — cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.”
In a statement on twitter, former Vice President Joe Biden wrote, “President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”
Democrat Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren tweeted, “But this reckless move (killing Soleimani) escalates the situation with Iran and increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict. Our priority must be to avoid another costly war.”
The question must be asked: Are these senior U.S. official unaware Iran has been consistently waging war against the United States for 40 years?
Soleimani, a senior Iranian official, was responsible for numerous military operations against the U.S. military and U.S. interests, including the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, with the full knowledge and approval of the Iranian government.
When military leaders of a foreign government overtly attack United States interests, those actions can be considered acts of war.
But we do not need to split hairs where Iran is concerned.
Iran’s constitution identifies Iran as an “Islamic Republic” and calls for jihad (war against non-muslims) until the world is under Islamic rule as is required by Allah’s divine law.
In 1979, under the direction of Iranian leadership, Iranians stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. They were released on President Reagan’s inauguration day.
Hizbollah, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization and an arm of the Iranian government, was responsible for the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon on October 23, 1983 which killed 241 U.S. military personnel, 220 of them U.S. Marines.
Iran’s Hizbollah leader in Saudi Arabia, Ahmed al-Mughassil, was indicted by the United States for the 1996 bombing of the U.S. housing complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia which killed 19 U.S. Air Force personnel.
Iran supported Al Qaeda’s 9/11/01 operation with intelligence, explosives training, and safe passage for Al Qaeda operatives (at least 8 of the 9/11 hijackers) training in and passing through Iran.
In the summer of 2008, Iranian President Ahmadinejad sent a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush inviting him to Islam. This letter was not taken seriously by U.S. intelligence officials.
However, an in-depth understanding of the threat – sharia – reveals this was an important event in Iran’s long war against America.
In “Allah’s divine law”/sharia, dawah – the call to Islam – is required before jihad can be waged. That 2008 letter from the leader of Iran to the leader of the United States was tantamount to a declaration of war by Iran against the United States.
Yet, the entire U.S. intelligence apparatus was unaware.
Most recently, Iran gave direct battlefield support via weapons, munitions, intelligence and more against the U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan during the conflicts there for the last seventeen years, resulting in hundreds, if not thousands of U.S. lives being lost.
President Trump’s authroization of military action which killed Iran’s Qud Force Commander will not START a war. It is the first retaliation by the United States in a war that has been waged against America for 40 years by Iran.
The United States IS at war with Iran, and has been since 1979.
Now its time to finish it.

The other big issue is understanding Islamic sharia countries……they are ruled by the Quran and sharia, this information can be examined from the sources they follow, that form their lives, you see right thru the insanity to offer or sign any treaty that will last only as long as they need a break to regroup or can cash in for their enpowerment., they never have any intention to abide in a agreement with non muslim governments which does not allow non beleivers to have power over their government of sharia. In fact they are taught to never submit to a treaty. They follow examples of warfare from ” the quranic warfare sura;s and life of their prophet. Many cannot conceive that a insurgency could be so smart as to pull all this off while explaining themselves as a religion, that grew thru immigration, dawah and terror and can consist or many races from countries they conquered. Allowing a plane full of citizens to take off during multiple missile attacks….I beleive was deliberate. Those who have information can certainly surmise this should be seen after all the missing planes…… and crashes, as not just incompetence but an operation in my opinion. A disgusting lack of concern for life, that made the black boxes off limits.
[…] UTT reported this week, Iran has been at war with the United States for 40 years. Therefore, […]
I remember when that invitation came. I was completely shocked at the bureaucracies’ cavalier disregard of its implications. The Ignorance in the west of the dictates of the Koran and Hadith is utterly appalling. Were citizens, bureaucrats and politicians even slightly familiar with those documents, I doubt that one Muslim would ever be grated a green card or citizenship.
My fear is that the game plan has been to bring Muslims into the West to exterminate the Christian population. No one will stand for the Christians, the major unprotected class in the US and Europe.
Iran waited unto Tuesday, just like 9/11. I prayer they had time to react, don’t know how long it would take since they are close. Iran nuclear deal…….was a joke , they got money to buy these missiles maybe fromN. korea and rocket man.
They got money to buy missiles from the Obama administration almost half a billion dollars.
Interesting information about the letter written to Pres. Bush from the leader of Iran, inviting him to Islam 2008, 7 years after the 9/11 attacks, I never realized that is what they do, write letters. The jihad attacks were already a signal of war but the information was not recognized as credible or significant since it was just a religion of peace… for many years which appraently was sucessful dawah and the start of an attempted insurgency unseen, since many of the countries in the ME were fighting for supremacy and the MB advisors made sure the U.S. didn’t see it that way yet.
I have to admit it was a very frightening to hear about the protests and attacks outside the embassy in Iraq, and then the response to delivered to jihadi leaders from Iran, knowing the circumstances of their advancements via sent money from in my opinion another insurgent I will not name. I only wish it had an opportunity to happen earlier and that the borders and insurgents that arrived and settled could have be displaced back before this occurred but it was a fight to get this far with a more concerned awakening leader in charge, who will get it even more, hopefully. The very real threat also lies within our borders and north and south. I will also note a lot of helicoptors are flying and passing over and around. How to prepare for what may arrive is a little unnerving considering the information warfare that I see by some of our leaders to the left and their friends.
