Iranian prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said his nation has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald Trump, asking Interpol for help in detaining US President, as well as others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, according to reports.

Soleimani who was a designated terrorist by the United States, was killed in a January, 3 attack in Iraq. He was wanted for the planning and death of hundreds of Americans and thousands of people all over the world. Trump said he ordered the U.S. drone strike that killed Soleimani, who was the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force. He, along with other Iranian, military officials were killed at the Baghdad International Airport. At the time, Soleimani was planning an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

White House officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

According to Al Jazeera, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Monday that Trump, along with more than 30 others, will face “murder and terrorism charges.” The news agency said that Alqasimehr did not name anyone other than Trump, “but stressed Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.”

Interpol has not immediately responded to a request for comment on this developing story.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Published

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
