On Saturday, terrorists attacked a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran, a city of 1.3 million people.
Men with AK-47s killed 25 people, targeting the IRGC.
Immediately Iran began blaming the US.
The US denies any association with the terrorists.
Two groups have claimed responsibility.
- al-Ahvaziya group, a little-known group that the Iranian Students’ News Agency, INSA claims is backed by Saudi Arabia.
A good discussion:
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley remarked that if Iran wanted to see who was behind the attack, Iranian leaders should “look in the mirror”.
Islamic law dictates funerals must be held almost immediately. Iran used the funerals as a political pulpit.
Meanwhile on Monday, the deputy head of Iran’s elite military organization, the Revolutionary Guards, warned the US and its allies that Tehran was prepared to retaliate. “You have seen our revenge before … You will see that our response will be crushing and devastating and you will regret what you have done,” Hossein Salami said in a speech before the funeral of the victims, broadcast live on TV.
No, we have not seen your revenge before. We have seen your words, we have observed your bravado, and we have heard your threats.
Iran is hosting a Kerfluffle, described as:
To rile up, confuse, or anger a cat (especially kittens) into fluffing up. Sometimes results in a cat spazzing out and running around the residence. (Urban dictionary)
