Facing escalating domestic protests & unprecedented international isolation, #Iran's regime is desperate to save face. Through this process, they will resort to whatever lie & propaganda necessary.
My latest piece explains.
Read how George Soros is literally joining forces with #Iran's regime.
Your periodic reminder that the mullahs' leader has not approved even a dime of Iran's National Development Fund to fight the country's coronavirus crisis.
However, he immediately approved 200 million euros from this Fund for the terrorist IRGC Quds Force.
"... by mid-January, senior officials in the ministry had received letters from doctors warning about the problem in Qom, followed by similar warnings from Mashhad and other cities. 'But the ministry silenced everyone...'"

-We don't want hostility. But if they are hostile to us, they're going to regret it like they've never regretted anything before.
The key here is that the U.S., Iraq, and Iran all know full well that Kata'ib Hezbollah's attacks on U.S. forces are de facto Iranian attacks.
