Iran opting for ‘total war’ against US… Trump just killed 6 more IRGC leaders in Iraq, seems he is just getting warmed up.

Iran’s response to Soleimani’s killing is certain to be devastating and the intention will be to inflict heavy casualties on American personnel regionally. Trump’s gambit may have put his re-election bid in serious jeopardy.

Iran’s choice is going to be to wage an asymmetrical war. Tehran will settle for nothing less than American withdrawal from the region. It’s going to be total war — unrestricted in terms of weapons used, territory or combatants involved, or objectives pursued, a war in which accepted rules of war are disregarded.

Trump just killed 6 more IRGC leaders in Iraq, seems he is just getting warmed up.

A convoy carrying members of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an umbrella group of Iran-backed militias, was hit by an airstrike while traveling in Baghdad, media reports say. The PMF said that medics were in the cars.

The three-car convoy was struck in the northern outskirts of the Iraqi capital in the district of al-Taji late on Friday, according to an Iraqi military source cited by Reuters. Six militiamen were reportedly killed in the attack, with three others critically injured. It remains unclear who carried out the strike.

Iran will punish “Americans” wherever they are within reach of the Islamic republic in retaliation for the killing of Soleimani, Tasnim news agency quoted a senior Revolutionary Guards commander as saying.

General Gholamali Abuhamzeh, the commander of the Guards in the southern province of Kerman, raised the prospect of possible attacks on ships in the Gulf, and said Iran reserved the right to take revenge against the US for the death of Soleimani.
