Trump threatens destruction of ancient Iranian monuments

This December 2016 video says about itself:

The Shah Mosque (Persian: مسجد شاه), also known as Imam Mosque (Persian: مسجد امام), renamed after the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and Jaame’ Abbasi Mosque, is a mosque in Isfahan, Iran, standing in the south side of Naghsh-e Jahan Square. Built during the Safavid period, ordered by the first Shah Abbas of Persia.

It is regarded as one of the masterpieces of Iranian architecture and an excellent example of Islamic era architecture of Iran. The Shah Mosque of Isfahan is one of the everlasting masterpieces of architecture in Iran. It is registered, along with the Naghsh-e Jahan Square, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction began in 1611, and its splendour is mainly due to the beauty of its seven-colour mosaic tiles and calligraphic inscriptions.

The mosque is depicted on the reverse of the Iranian 20,000 rials banknote.

In 2007, the United States George W Bush administration threatened this beautiful ancient mosque with destruction.

Today, Dutch NOS radio reports (translated):

The United States has selected 52 Iranian targets to be attacked if Iran launches an attack on Americans or US possessions. President Trump writes in a series of tweets about the liquidation of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani on Friday.

According to Trump, some of the selected goals are “very important for Iran and Iranian culture”.

I would not be surprised if the Isfahan mosque is on that list of destruction by Donald Trump.

Recently, first a missile killed a soldier of fortune mercenary at a United States military base in Iraq. Without providing evidence, the Trump administration blamed that attack on an Iraqi Shiite militia, part of the Iraqi armed forces, and on Iranian general Soleimani.

As revenge, the Trump administration killed scores of people in air raids on Iraq, Syria and Somalia. Implying that the equivalent of the life of one United States mercenary is supposedly the lives of scores of Iraqis, Syrians and Somalis.

As a reaction, thousands of Iraqis protested at the United States Baghdad embassy. They threw water bottles. United States Marines fired tear gas and stun grenades at them. No one was killed. The embassy itself was not invaded. The demonstrators went away.

As revenge for that demonstration, the Trump administration killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and other ‘collateral damage’ people about whom the corporate media don’t tell much, at Baghdad international civilian airport.

Now, maybe there will come revenge violence for that from the Iranian regime as part of a circle of violence maybe leading to nuclear war.

I would not be surprised if the Trump administration would not wait with destruction of the Isfahan mosque and the 51 other targets in Iran until the Iranian government would really retaliate violently. After all, they killed scores of Iraqis, Syrians and Somalis without providing any proof that they were connected to the death of that one United States mercenary. Etc. Just like the Isfahan mosque and people inside it are unconnected to that death.
