Iran Teases Attack on US Capitol Building
Iran released a provocative new video over the weekend that depicts its military forces blowing up the United States Capitol building, a threat that comes as the Biden administration inches closer to providing Tehran with billions of dollars in economic sanctions relief.
The video debuted Sunday on Iranian state-controlled television before Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei delivered remarks, in which he praised the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the paramilitary force that has killed Americans, and celebrated IRGC leader Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a drone strike by the former Trump administration.
Khamenei, in his weekend address to the country, bolstered Zarif’s remarks by praising the IRGC’s ongoing operations in the region, which have targeted U.S. and Western forces. Khamenei vowed to continue fueling wars across the Middle East.
