On April 18, 1983 a truck full of explosives was driven into the Embassy of the United States of America in Beirut, Lebanon killing seventeen Americans, as well as many Lebanese nationals working at the embassy, or just passing by on the street that ran past the Chancery building. Several months later on the morning of October 23, 1983 another truck loaded with explosives was again driven by a suicide bomber, and it slammed into the building being used to house United States Marines in Beirut, Lebanon, killing two hundred fifty one Marines, and wounding many more.  Both bombings had the fingerprints of Iranian terrorists all over them.

Since the creation of the Islamic Republic of Iran following the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, that nation has been at war with the United States, attacking American interests and killing Americans in nearly every corner of the world. Iran was actively involved in supporting the insurgency being fought by U.S. troops in Iraq, and was responsible for providing much of the explosives and weaponry being used to kill and maim American service members trying to bring stability to that Middle Eastern country ravaged by decades of the brutal dictatorship of Saddam Hussein and his regime. Iran also was, and still is involved behind the scenes in our two decade involvement in Afghanistan, and once again responsible for many American deaths.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has been more than a thorn in our side since the Iranian Islamic revolution that began back in 1978-79. It has been a bitter enemy of the United States, committing acts of war against America on a regular basis. Iran’s battle cry from the beginning has been “Death to America”, and it has referred to the United States as “the Great Satan” ever since the Iranian Clerics(?) took control of their country. Their efforts to attack American citizens and our interests have continued unabated throughout the years since the Iranian Mullahs took control of what had once been a stable, reliable American ally on the strategically important Arabian (Persian) Gulf.

Fast forward to nowadays and we see that Iran has continued its efforts to attack Americans anytime and anywhere, even within our own national borders. Intelligence sources have revealed that former Trump Administration officials, most notably President Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his National Security Advisor John Bolton, have been the targets of Iranian assassination plots. Who knows how many other Americans are on the list of Iranian targets?  The Iranian proxy Hezbollah now maintains a large presence in Central and South America.  That’s a long way from the Middle East.  It’s a serious concern as to how many may have slipped into America via Biden’s open border policies, and what are their intentions?  

The Iranian regime and their proxies have brought pain and suffering to the families of American service members, and to Americans unlucky enough to have become hostages of the regime for decades now. Instead of negotiating a nuclear deal with them we should be informing them that under no circumstances will they ever be allowed to develop or possess nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. And that we are more than prepared, in fact we are desirous of the opportunity to take whatever actions are necessary to prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from attaining such a capability.

They should know that what happened to their terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani will be only a tiny taste of what we are prepared to wreak upon the Iranian regime and its leadership should we ever even suspect that they are close to acquiring a weapon of mass destruction.  There is no doubt that they intend to use one if they are able to acquire one.  They are that crazy and fanatical.

The Iranian leadership is a terrorist and a criminal organization, a scourge on humanity. The sooner the Iranian people overthrow the government and take steps to return to being a civilized member of the community of nations, the better life will be for the average citizen of Iran who are now held in religious bondage by the current dictatorial regime.

So in response to the threats made by the Mullahs in Iran, they should understand very clearly. America is no “paper Tiger”. We are trained, equipped, and ready, willing and able to erase the ‘Islamic’ Republic of Iran and its leadership from the history books.

Death to America? We are laughing in your faces. Just like we laughed when Qasem Soleimani became nothing more than a grease spot on a Baghdad street.  And we’ll keep laughing at the collection of misfits and nut cases in Tehran until the day in the not too distant future that the Iranian theocracy ceases to be a thorn in our side, and an enemy of America.
