Iranian MP Puts $3 Million Bounty on Trump's Head

Ahmad Hamzeh, a little-known member of parliament, made offered the bounty on behalf of the people of Kerman, the hometown and final resting place of the revered Soleimani, who was killed in an American drone strike in neighbouring Iraq on January 3.

I've lost count of exactly how many explanations for the January 3 airstrike Trump and his team have come up with, though I believe we're up to Rationale #6: the president authorized the strike because an Iranian general was "saying bad things".

Hamzeh also called on parliament to produce long-range nuclear weapons to deter the USA from future attacks.

During his speech, Hamzeh also addressed Iran's nuclear program, vowing that "if we had nuclear weapons today, we would be protected from threats". "This is our natural right", he was quoted as saying by ISNA.

"He said bad things about our country. he was saying things like 'We're going to attack your country". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Soleimani was planning an imminent attack on Americans, but did not say when and where future attacks were being planned.

"They hit General Soleimani in a cowardly act, but there are freedom-seekers across the world who want to revenge for him with God's help, and God willing, we will hit his enemy chivalrously", said Gen. Esmail Ghaani at a ceremony in Tehran. His implication is the military leader is more powerful in death than he was before he was killed. Iranian-backed militias in Iraq have hit bases containing USA personnel with rockets a number of times in recent months.

President Donald Trump on Friday warned Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to be "very careful with his words".

Washington and and its Western allies have long accused Iran of seeking nuclear weapons but Tehran insists it has never tried to develop nuclear arms and never will, claiming its nuclear work is for research and energy production. He also tweeted in Farsi for Iranian leaders to "abandon terror and Make Iran Great Again!" The agreement, negotiated under the U.S. administration of Barack Obama, had imposed restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.
