[Wen\/observer Xu Qianang] U.S. airstrikes assassinated senior Iranian officials and then threatened to destroy Iranian cultural sites, moving alongside \"war crimes \". In an attempt to \"wipe the ass\" for Trump, Secretary of State Pompeo gave interviews to five U.S. media outlets - ABC, CNN, NBC, CBS and Fox News - in 12 hours in an attempt to clarify the U.S. position, only to flip wildly.
For example, Mr Pompeo denied that the United States planned to crack down on Iran's cultural heritage, and Mr Trump reiterated that it was \"fair\" to do so. Pompeo, for example, is \"quite certain\" that the Iraqi people need America. The Iraqi parliament has called for an end to the military presence of foreign troops in Iraq.
On the morning of January 5 local time, Pompeo first spoke to Fox News to defend the U.S.'s assassination of Iran's \"number three\" Suleimani. \"Anybody who gets the information that senior U.S. officials have will make the same decision as President Trump. If our team doesn't, it's a bigger threat to Americans.\" Pompeo also attacked former President Barack Obama's relatively moderate policy toward Iraq,\" endless war is the result of weakness,[ this administration] is doing the right thing.\"
Pompeo also \"cushioned the back\" of the iraqi government, saying baghdad \"is suffering a huge threat from iran.\" \"We are confident that the Iraqi people want American soldiers to remain in their country and fight against terrorism. And we will continue to work as hard as possible to keep America safe.
Some foreign users don't know where Pompeo is confident that the Iraqi people need America. Some took to social media to satirize:" Pompeo should feel confident about his own stupidity." "Is Iraq allowing US troops to be stationed in its territory to provoke Iran, the more powerful leader?” And why should Iraq involve itself in the war between the United States and Iran? Iraq itself has long been devastated by the war. There's no point in what Pompeo says. said one Democratic voter.
Following Iraq's clear \"no need for U.S. troops,\" Pompeo spoke to CBS News the same day and began endorsing:\" The United States is ready to help the Iraqi people, the United States is ready to continue its counter-terrorism mission. It's in the interests of the Iraqis, and it's good for the United States. He does not deny that there will be \"private communication\" with the iraqi government.
Pompeo then went on to join CNN, ABC and NBC. In three interviews, the moderators asked whether it was legal to \"Trump's threats to combat Iran's cultural heritage \". Pompeo's response was unanimous: the American counter-attack was legitimate, reasonable and constitutional. He even turned a blind eye to Trump's comments on social media, and \"the president hasn't said he wants to crack down on Iran's cultural heritage.\"
“They can kill our citizens, they can torture our citizens, they can bomb our citizens and we can't touch their cultural heritage? It doesn't make sense. "If they do, there will be a big fight back," Trump said.
Earlier (January 4), Colin Carr, a national security official who served in Barack Obama's administration, disagreed with the US side's inclusion of important cultural sites in Iran as a strike target, tweeting:\" Taking cultural sites as a target is war crimes.\"
