Iran just released a deranged hype video of realistic footage pretending to blow up the United States Capitol. The video was leaked Sunday on state-controlled TV before Ayatollah Khamenei gave a speech praising the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guard unit depicted in the propaganda video. The video began as a tribute to Iranian General Qasem Soleimani who was killed in a U.S. drone strike during the Trump Administration.
Iran’s supposedly moderate peace-loving Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, described Iran’s view of the relationship between Iran and the U.S.:
I believe Iran and the U.S. will never be friends as long as the Islamic republic preserves its identity. Never will our issues with America be resolved.
They called our Capitol a “palace of oppression” in the video. They put together a video that includes footage of our Capitol being blown up. They’ve shared it for the entire world to see. And they’re claiming they don’t see a chance for reconciliation. Clearly the Iranians are NOT hiding how they feel.
Yet, we currently have our diplomats rushing to make a deal with them and lift sanctions.
ACLJ Senior Military Analyst Wes Smith called out the Biden Administration:
There is a reason that they shout death to America. Because they actually mean it. And the Biden Administration is acting like they don’t mean it, but in fact they do. We should be increasing sanctions and sticking by our guns and be a tough negotiator with them [because] they do want to destroy our country. We should be doing that instead of considering lifting sanctions on them.
We’ve told you how this situation is escalating. This started with former Secretary of State and now a member of President Biden’s National Security Council, John Kerry developing a relationship with Iranian official Zarif while President Trump was in office. Now, they are housing a terrorist organization (Al-Qaeda) and working to develop nuclear weapons as we speak. Not to mention, they have been harassing the U.S. Navy to the extent that we had to fire warning shots at them.
How much more of a warning does the Biden Administration need? Iran hates America, and they are the number ONE state sponsor of terrorism.
The Biden Administration has shown tremendous weakness on national security all around the world.
We’ve already seen how Iran has partnered with another U.S. adversary, China. China is currently committing mass genocide and getting information on our military aircraft. In breaking news, U.S. defense contractor Honeywell has been fined $13 million for harming our national security by sharing technical information about American fighter jets and other military aircraft with China and other countries. National security is a real concern under the Biden Administration, one we are taking very seriously at the ACLJ.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was tasked by President Biden to repair U.S. alliances. He shared his view on China:
It is the one country in the world that has the military, economic, diplomatic capacity to undermine or challenge the rules-based order that we care so much about [and] are determined to defend. But I want to be very clear about something. And this is important. Our purpose is not to contain China, to hold it back, to keep it down. It is to uphold this rules-based order that China is posing a challenge to. Anyone who poses a challenge to that order, we’re going to stand up and defend it.
When asked what China’s goal is, Sec. Blinken responded:
I think that over time, China believes that it can be and should be and will be the dominant country in the world.
When will the Biden Administration finally put America first? Knowing all of this information, the Biden Administration is STILL trying to negotiate a deal with Iran. When they are fantasizing about blowing up our Capitol – the idea that you can sit down and make a deal with them is absurd. (Ironically, the propaganda video apparently ripped the scene from a Hollywood film for the depiction of the Capitol blowing up.)
We have filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration over its secretive interactions with Iran, and we are going to be in court very soon. We will continue demanding President Biden put America’s interest and our national security first.
