DUBAI (Reuters) - The Twitter account of Iran's Supreme Leader on Friday carried the image of a golfer resembling former President Donald Trump apparently being targeted by a drone, vowing revenge over the killing of a top Iranian general in a U.S. drone attack.

 

The post carried the text of remarks by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in December, in which he said "Revenge is certain", renewing a vow of vengeance ahead of the first anniversary of the killing of top military commander General Qassem Soleimani in the attack in Iraq.

 

"Those who ordered the murder of General Soleimani as well as those who carried this out should be punished. This revenge will certainly happen at the right time," Khamenei tweeted on December 16, without naming Trump, who had ordered the strike.

 

Earlier this month, Twitter removed a tweet by Khamenei in which he said U.S. and British-made vaccines were unreliable and may be intended to "contaminate other nations". The platform said the tweet violated its rules against misinformation.

 

There was no apparent immediate action by Twitter over the Persian-language tweet on Friday by Khamenei, Iran's highest authority. (https://twitter.com/khamenei_site/status/1352349195114569739?s=24 )

 

Tensions rapidly grew between Tehran and Washington since 2018, when Trump exited a 2015 deal between Iran and six world powers that sought to curb Tehran's nuclear programme. Washington reimposed sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy.

 

Iran called for action and "not just words" shortly after Joe Biden was sworn in as U.S. president on Wednesday. Biden has said Washington will rejoin the nuclear deal if Iran resumes strict compliance.

as much as I'd like to see the scumbag terminated, DON"T do it. It'll turn him into a martyr and that's the last thing the world needs.

So you know personally that he is a scumbag. Please give us some details.

(Don't worry he is not on my Christmas card list).

The GOP would probably support them, he is going to be a thorn in their side for as long as his IQ can remain over 50. He will force the reps and senators to pander to the lowest IQ denominator within the republican supporters if they want to keep their seats, Qanon hasn't died yet, fantasy is just waiting for a new wave and Trump will be blowing the trumpet.

I find it difficult to accept the Iranian leader making overt death threats to President Trump on Twitter being less inflammatory than Trump telling his supporters to go "peacefully and patriotically" to make their voices heard at the capitol. It just doesn't make sense. Is Twitter censorship really equally applied to all? 

I see you never recover your sense of perspective.

Don't twist the news and don't post misinformation.

 

As you know, we can come up with dozens of examples of Trump inciting his nut job supporters to go to the capitol and "fight like he**".  That's well documented.  But I guess not in your alternate reality.

It was probably that Pompeo who put Trump up to assassinating the Iranian General, Trump was probably only the final yes man.
