A recent FBI memo states that, in 2022, the Iranian Pasdaran intelligence service attempted to recruit 7 Iranians with dual US citizenship. According to the memo, clandestine Iranian cells are still being sought in New York, Virginia and California.
Despite the fiery war of words and threatening gesticulations promising to avenge his death, the elimination of General Qasem Soleimani, killed by an American drone on January 3, not far from Baghdad airport, is a relief for the Iranian regime! And not only for the reformist current led by President Hassan Rouhani and his Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Donald Trump’s decision to eliminate General Qasem Suleimani, N°2 of the Iranian Regime, undeniably transforms a conflict that was slowly simmering into a sudden powder keg. It is undoubtedly the most dangerous and risky decision taken by an American President since the 2nd Gulf War in March 2003.
