#AceNewsReport – June.30: Iran is celebrating the crisis in America.While continuing to refer to the US as the “Great Satan,” it has put out a celebratory song: “It is the end of your reign, America!” The regime is now calling for the arrest of Donald Trump, and is asking for Interpol’s help: Since Iran dubbed Qassem Soleimani a revered martyr, it is accusing Trump of “murder and terrorist acts.”……………..The US’s international allies, including the UK and Germany, also criticised the strike at the time, with Berlin warning that it risked a “dangerous escalation” in the region:
This fear of “escalation” with jihadist bullies is precisely what enables them. They become more emboldened and stronger in the face of appeasement, as was seen with Iran during the Obama administration: In addition to the Iran deal, the Iranian regime “may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert.”
This money allowed Iran to expand not only its regional influence, but to position itself internationally through its proxies and the manipulation of pliant Western states such as Germany: Iran announced in early June that its citizens “who provided information to US and Israeli intelligence services on the whereabouts” of Soleimani would be executed.
Interpol has refused Iran’s request; its regulations require it to “reject any request that it judges to be politically motivated.”
“Iran has issued an arrest warrant for Trump over the killing of Qassem Soleimani, and asked Interpol to help detain him,” by Adam Bienkov, Business Insider, June 29, 2020:
Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and it’s asked Interpol for help detain him.
Tehran called for an Interpol “red notice” on 36 US political and military figures, including the president, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported Monday.
Iranian prosecutor Qasi Mehr said the figures had been charged with “murder and terrorist acts” for the killing of Soleimani by US drone strike in Baghdad in January.
The strike on Soleimani on January 3 was justified by the US Department of Defence as being “aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”
The president has broad powers in matters of military conflict under the US constitution. But some experts have questioned the legality of the strike.
The US’s international allies, including the UK and Germany, also criticised the strike at the time, with Berlin warning that it risked a “dangerous escalation” in the region.
Interpol has yet to respond to Iran, but it has the power to refuse its request.
Red notices are issued to law-enforcement agencies around the world requesting that the person is located and arrested, but they do not compel them to do so….
