Iran's Foreign Ministry Condemns President Trump's Remarks On Yesterday's Terror Attack In Tehran

Washington Post: Iran’s top diplomat calls Trump’s statement on Tehran attacks ‘repugnant’

Iran’s foreign minister on Thursday derided as “repugnant” a statement from President Trump that linked twin attacks in Tehran to what he called Iran’s support for terrorism.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry identified five of the attackers — all killed during Wednesday’s bloodshed — as Iranians who had left the country to join the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria. The ministry published photos of their bodies. A sixth attacker was arrested, officials said.

At least 17 people were killed at Iran’s parliament in Tehran and at the sprawling mausoleum complex for Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran’s Islamic revolution.

"The Bullshit piles up so high you need wings to stay above it," Capt Willard Apocalypse Now. With all that's going on right now in the Gulf area, I suspect that war with Iran and it's Allies is not far off. It's going to be an interesting.

- The Iranians manufactured thousands of IEDs to be placed by Sunni and Shia Iraqis.

- the Iranians provided $$$ and other support to both Sunni and Shia terrorists in Iraq.

- The Iranians allowed free passage for Al Qaeda through its territory.

The Shia Iraqis have not turned on Iran, but the Sunni Iraqis surely have.

I wish the best for the Iranian people and the worst for their masters, the theocracy.
