 People familiar with the matter: Irans top leader orders the military to attack the United States directly


[completely angry! Irans top leader has abandoned his proxy to order the military to attack the United States directly. Irans top leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, accompanied by President Mahmoud Rouhani and other officials, held a tearful prayer ceremony. Now it is reported that he directed direct attacks on US interests to the military.

According to the New York Times, three people familiar with the matter said Friday that in the tense moment after the US killed major general Sulaimani of Iran, Khamenei rarely attended the meeting of the governments national security committee to give instructions for any retaliatory action that Iran may take against the US. He said that the Iranian army must publicly carry out direct and proportional attacks on the interests of the US.

Since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979, Tehran has almost always used agents for attacks. But the killing of major general Sulaimani prompted Khamenei to make an exception and abandon tradition.

Tens of thousands of Iranians rushed to the streets of Tehran to bury Sulaimani Thursday, and Khamenei wept in front of his coffin.
