Iran Promised Revenge For Assassination Of Top Nuclear Scientist, US On The Alert

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has accused Israel of assassinating the country’s top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

The Iranian scientist was killed on November 27 by unidentified assailants in the outskirts of the capital, Tehran. The assailants blew up a car ahead of him and then opened fire at his vehicle.

On November 28, Rouhani said the assassination sprang from the inability of the “enemies of Iran” to hold back its scientific progress and development.

“Once again, the evil hands of global arrogance were stained with the blood of the mercenary usurper Zionist regime,” Rouhani said, according to the Anadolu Agency.

The assassination of Fakhrizadeh, who was described as the “Qasem Soleimani of Iran’s nuclear program,” led to anger among the country’s top officials.

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called in a statement for action against those responsible for the assassination of Fakhrizadeh. Khamenei said Iranian officials should “seriously place two crucial matters on their agendas.”

“First, investigating this crime and firmly prosecuting its perpetrators and its commanders,” he said. “Second, continuing the martyr’s scientific and technological efforts in all the sectors where he was active.”

The assassination was condemned by Iran’s regional allies. Naim Qassem, second-in-command of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, stressed that Tehran has the right to respond to the assassination.

The U.S, who was accused of carrying out the assassination along with Israel, is taking unusual military measures in the Middle East.

Less than 24 hours after the assassination of Fakhrizadeh, the U.S. Navy announced the return of aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to the Persian Gulf.

Commander Rebecca Rebarich, spokeswoman for the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet, said there were “no specific threats” that triggered the return of the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group. She added that the redeployment was related to U.S. draw-down in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“This action ensures we have sufficient capability available to respond to any threat and to deter any adversary from acting against our troops during the force reduction,” the spokeswoman said, according to Reuters.

The timing of the redeployment of the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group, which was apparently pre-scheduled, may be directly linked to the assassination of Fakhrizadeh.

Iran has reportedly placed its missile units on high-alert. It remains unclear if Tehran will take military action or against which side. A military response may lead to a serious confrontation in the region, especially if Israel was the target.

Trump is playing on a big war, if it breaks out he can stay El President indefinately.

paolinks

Humm in such a scenario, Antifa, BLM and others will go to the White House and hung him like Mussolini.

There is no way he could remain in place, even if a big war erupts.

JIMI JAMES

Do you fools believe the world will prosper if the constituates are not to be intact?
Think again,either way there is no future in 4th reicht (fake commy) fascism nor lgbtq:

Huh? I am stating facts. Trump promised a lot, but hasn’t delivered. Where are the sealed indictments against the TPTB for pedophilia? Where are the uber-trials with thousands of dems behind bars? Where is the “make American great again”? The only ones that have earned something are the jews in the middle east. And now Nuttanyahu has turned his back on Trump.

Icarus Tanović

I thought Trump is slightly better than demonrats and chickenhawks, but he isnt, he is only more pragmatic, but will do the same crap if he has to.

verner

but the ever odious slime, son in law, kushner, is up netanyahu’s ass like a blind mole. what about trying to sell information about nuke technology to mohammed bin salman (who is known to the world for having killed khashoggi and for having bought a fake da vince painting at 450million bucks, actual value approx 50000 bucks, what a larf) which was scuppered when the relevant senate group found out and then blackmailed the poor qataris out of 1billion bucks to save his fathers almost bankrupt real estate company and not forgetting that kushner’s papa donated 2 million bucks to harvard so that the son was admitted.

”What makes this effort all the more extraordinary are the reports that
MEK has actually intensified its terrorist and other military activities
over the last couple of years. In February, citing US officials, that “deadly attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists are being carried out by [MEK]” as it is “financed, trained and armed by Israel’s secret service”.”

MEK is the cancer in Iran…as long they are living they harm Iran and Iranian.
MEK work with Zion/Wahhabi/CIA and Iran haven’t done much to shut them down. MEK is their (US/Zion) hand in Iran…US/Zion block don’t even have to do much but send them and give information to them and they do it.
Go after them in Iraq and Iran they hide in Kurdish areas in Iraq still and work with “bad apple” in Iran.
MEK is nothing but Terrorists, cultists fuk faces.

Iran should acquire a number of missile fitting nukes from NK and israel and the jews will be mashed for good.

tzatz

Iran got everything else from NK … including ballistic missiles

gryzor84

Lol look at him with his one-liner prophecy. They even went ahead in research past their all-Iranian Sejil-2 design back in 2008, and in termes of air-defense, radar science, naval point defense CIWS and sea-skimming cruise missiles, and mechanized units in general, they have a whole range of assets that NK didn’t ever develop. You’re late on the news, once again.

tzatz

Iranian development of these ‘assets’ is highly suspect

The paper tiger boasts … pmsl

When I think hi-tech … Iran isn’t in the top 100 countries … eh?

Come on Man!

What does Iran make that the World wants?

Flatbread?

We’ve already got the recipes and I prefer the Arab cuisine …

next

gryzor84

Ahah, and what exactly Israel does without the US industrial power and its countless exclusive tech cooperation agreements it holds with them ? it even has to ask permission every time it wants to sell weapons to a third party since EVERY of their most sensitive and complex electronic components are not produced locally but by Intel plants controlled by Washington.

Fully-developed pharmaceutical industry : They made medicine and vaccines for the entire region before the US sanctions, when Biden reverts such policy they will start anew.
Underground excavators for digging metro tunnels, only fielded by 5-7 countries in Western Europe, the US, Russia and China
One place below South Korea for Nanotechnology patents
A robust, fully-fledged aerospace industry with demonstrated capability to send satellites into geostationary orbit without external help
100% homegrown optics industry, both military and civilian grade
100% homegrown heavy ship-building capacity
100% homegrown petrochemical capabilities including gas compressor turbines which are only produced by a handful of countries.
A mature and potent radar industry even acknowledged by the Pentagon.
Demonstrated metric-precision capability of its ballistic and cruise missile (pinpoint strikes on the Iraqi Al-Asad base, or Kurdish militant group in 2019 that went through individual rooms right through 10m-long roofs)

I could continue on and on.

tzatz

???

So when the bombs hit … ALL that industry will be twisted metal and ash

next

gryzor84

ahahah that’s right clap on that :D but be careful what you wish for little man :D

As this day will also be the day Iran’s ballistic retaliation will shatter basically anything of importance in tiny Israel.

And they won’t have to aim a very large area, as there’s almost no strategic depth in a micro-state.

Good luck covering Iran’s 1.6M km² and dozen major cities with its vital assets spread all over the place and dug under endless mountains ranges, as opposed to 1/80th of this size in exposed little Israel and its three lone and identified electric plants furnishing 80% of its national grid. Same with its water purification plants :D

So few targets to aim at, in such a tiny stretch of land, easy peasy :)

tzatz

Ya so easy … but the Future is About to Land

gryzor84

Yeah… and potentially in your face :D so again, be careful what you wish for brah :D

Sorry to burst your bubble,israel did not kill him,infact did you see the dead corpse yet?

In my opinion the Iranian opposition killed the scientist as they blew up the nuclear facility in Natanz.

hey twat, don’t see you here as often as before but true to form, just as mentally sick as before-

“Israel isn’t supposed to be able to do this to the mighty IRGC?” – It seems that the Iranian opposition has done it.

This is the modus operandi. Foreign intelligence agencies are usually using local forces to carry out this operations.

“this was set up for awhile not last minute” – Yes.

Rhodium 10

What response?….they didnt respond when Iran destroyed 2 US bases in Iraq…even less when the president have lost the elections and US media dont allow him to speak!…Iran can send ballist/cruise missile and drones vs some Industrial centers like Raphael, IAI or some Buildings linked to Mossad or Shin Bet…and Israel cannot do nothing rather than intercept many of them but just a pair of them hiting targets inflicting damage and casualties is enough to send a message….Israel will not launch any attack vs Iran knowing that the enemy have a large country, have offensive and accurate weapons that can attack Israel in any time…and USA will not risk the life of his soldiers to save Trump face!

<>

What are you talking about you idiot? you think they can shoot ballistic missiles over here and we won’t do anything? in which planet do you live? better don’t comment on stuff you know nothing about.

“Israel will not launch any attack vs Iran knowing that the enemy have a large country, have offensive and accurate weapons that can attack Israel in any time…and USA will not risk the life of his soldiers to save Trump face!”

Yes we will, that is our policy.

Oh dear it looks like Magnus upset you. I;m sorry , he was only trying to tell you the truth . Little boy with big mouth thinking his cock is ten times larger than it really is. I bet if the shit starts flying in your direction you will be shitting your pants crying for mummy like all loud mouths full of bravado who have never fronted it for real. What a waste of time trying to talk to you . Better off discussing with a concrete block.

Rhodium 10

If Iran launch missile vs Tel Aviv..Israel will not do NOTHING but run like scared cats to hide in shelters!…if palestine launch few small rockets and provoke Panic and Houttis have been able to damage Saudi resources..imagine Iran launching constant accurate ballistic missile to Tel Aviv…everyday during one month!…

<>

Let me help you with your confusion, Hamas can only shoot rockets because we allow them to do it. Why? because we don’t want to kill innocent Palis there since we are responsible for them and we need to have peace eventually However, it is a different story when it comes to Syria, Lebanon or Iran. Look what happened to Lebanon in one month for shooting rockets back in 2006, they haven’t dared to do it again since then. You think Iran can do better? they’re not the only ones who have ballistic missiles, and trust me, our Jerichos are way more lethal.

Rhodium 10

Iran can “suffer” Israeli Jericó..but an small country like Israel and people usually coward…Israel cannot resist a constant rain of Irani ballist/cruise and drones everydays during one months…we are not talking about 5kg of explosive of that rockets..we are talking about 550-750kg and accurate missile able to destroy an entire building….in 2006 Israel lost that war!..all his goals failed!…the image of Merkava and warship being destroyed by a Guerrilla beside the failure of the Golani brigade in South lebanon ( Christian village)…was compromised by Israel!

<>

lol, first read about our Jerichos then comment. A dozen of them on Iran will make sure they won’t harass us for a very long time. So calm down.

Rhodium 10

Iran have many capabilities and proxies to hit very hard Israel…remember what happened in US bases in Iraq..Erbil base was complety destroyed included some aircraft..thats why they dont show photos of aftermath….Iran special forces team shot down a CIA Bombardier plane in Afganistan using like Houttis a modified air to air missile with IR seeker launched from ground with the support of powerful thermal cameras and Irani long range radar from Iran territory…that plane was spotted 130km Southwest from Kabul airport..Taliban also claimed that they shot down that plane..but it is impossible because was flying above range of Manpads and during snow day with low fog…3 CIA member beside 2 crew were killed…USA told that 2 Pilots killed and another corpses were “people living there” to hide 3 CIA casualties..but plane crashed in snow open terrain trying to land witness told that they hearded an explosion before plane crashed..which lead no casualties among population in that area….

Hind Abyad

You should calm down spamming non stop

Jaime Galarza

The only policy Israel has is that of attacking weak countries or women and chidren

Oh we are so scared, tell the mullahs he was not the last one to die. Anyone that is involved in the nuclear program against us is a legit target, and will pay the price.

Typical mullahs promise promise but no action

johnny rotten

To take revenge for the ignoble murder of Soleimani they canceled Mike D’Andrea and all his staff, and for good weight also the very expensive plane that transported them, now Iran has a problem: anyone who can kill Americans is not worth two cents, in Isisrahell finding someone who reaches at least two cents is a difficult task, to get the score they would have to kill all the leaders military staff a dozen times at least, so they will wait for the right moment to make them pay the total bill, and it will be the end of the occupant abusive of Palestine.

Fog of War

” Mike D’Andrea ”

Mike who ? Exactly, nobody cared or even knew.

Simon Ndiritu

Unless you are new here or in this business, you should know who the guy was. However, after the m*therf*ker was sent to hell, the US stopped threatening to kill more Iranian generals. The also stopped blaming Iran for everything

Fog of War

I might know but the US population doesn’t know or care, As well as the US establishment. The moron was just a cog in the governmental wheel and there were dozens behind him waiting to take his place. Can you say that about the Iranian general ? Revenge only matters if it actually hurts the other side. Also, obviously the US hasnt stopped going after Iran, recent events prove that.

israeli embassies around the world should be prime targets for the parties the jews’ aggressions are directed against, syria, iran, iraq, and so on. Houthis should aim a few more of its missiles on the saudi oil infrastructure in order to cause a breakdown of exports or at least reduce it significantly. otherwise Iran is playinga long game and when they are ready, the jews will or should be reduced to zero in the middle east. after all the middle east has suffered from the aggressions of the jews for about a 100 years and the effect is that they neither deserve any respect as a people nor deserve a future in the middle east and Iran will be the party to end the illegal occupation the jews are maintaining in Palestine (together with turkey, with syria, with lebanon/hezbollah, with Iraq and whatever able soldiers they can find.

“IRAN PROMISED REVENGE FOR ASSASSINATION OF TOP NUCLEAR SCIENTIST” – Immediately after the revenge for Soleimani, Mournia, the Hezbollah fighter killed three months ago in Syria and the hundreds of Israeli bombings in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere.
L O L.

John Wallace

That’s what the US forces at Al Asad Airbase were saying before they had to learn sign language with the ringing in their ears still makes them L O L .. Lying on the Lounge unable to get up without breaking into a cold sweat.

Fog of War

Are they still alive ? Some revenge.

John Wallace

Why do you think Iran warned the US of soon to be incoming . They were intent on giving a warning to Trump , who incidentally shit his pants , without causing bodies which may have escalated the situation. Go and look at the video of Trump giving his speech after the attack when he realised Iran could have obliterated the bases and all within if they had so wanted ,something he never thought possible. Melania was busy that day buying him new underwear.

Fog of War

Yup, the ZioAmericans are so scared that they just took out a prominent scientist and are probably planning on some more provocations or even attacks. So much fear.

Fog of War

The USS Nimitz is the oldest carrier still in service. It would be a shame if ” Iran ” took it out.

So close to the end of its life. It would be a shame if ” Iran ” took it out.

the USS Nimitz is projected to be replaced around 2022

John Wallace

Perhaps it should be renamed The Maine .. That makes it the 2nd carrier strike group in the area. Perhaps a signal of what is to come unless the other group head back to base. A 3rd force would mean something is about to happen.

Jim Allen

Really, with what ?
US can’t even get Ford operational, its spent more time in drydock than Admiral Kusnetzov has in it’s life.

John Wallace

France, Germany and the UK accused Iran of seriously violating the 2015 nuclear deal by plowing ahead with uranium enrichment . But they did NOTHING to support Iran against the US sanctions unilaterally imposed after the US pulled out of the agreement. They expect Iran to get abused and punished and still abide by a dead agreement. Iran is allowed to make nuclear generated electricity or is it expected that everyone uses a hand generator and be accused of living in the dark ages. Iran is an independent country allowed to make its own decisions in the best interests of their own citizens. They do not wage war or attack other countries , except Israel in a tit for at verbal assault. They have not attacked another country for decades , probably centuries yet others feel fit to make them grovel to them ..Sooner or later an abused dog bites back but in this case how many people have to die or be maimed for life for the glory and enrichment for a small select group.

Jim Allen

Iran violated nothing. JCPOA became null, and void the instant Trump pulled out of the agreement. It’s not possible to violate the terms of an agreement that no longer exists. Western propaganda has turned your brain cell into marbles, and bullshit.

all the world needs to see is the end of the illegal occupation of palestine by the jews in palestine and see them gone forever. the fact that israel is a geopolitical experiment that has failed (it was wrong from day 1 and which george-lloyd feared from day -300) means the experiment must be discontinued, the jews kicked out of the land they by now has enlarged by many 100 hundred per cent through theft and murder and threats and lies and the jews in palestine don’t deserve to remain in palestine, it is forfeited long long ago and they must go and only a united world can fix that, kick them out, support Iran and Syria and Iraq and Turkey and Lebanon in their quest to rid the world of the jewish menace.

Trap Is Not Gay

Iran, Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, etc should nuke, bomb, virus spread, chemical weapons “rain” on them, shoot more and shoot more again. Whatever the circus USA (and its vassal state pawns hide), the truth men should be prepared to release onto the Jew’s circus cesspool USA and finish the disgrace

Joe Kerr

So, Iran’s immediate response is to speed up its nuke program. NK has been a good role model, and it’d only take 3 small nukes to end Israel, permanently.

Porc Halal

You know, it’s funny.. even though it’s the israelits who did it, will be the americans who will pay the bill…
