Russian politician warns Iran and U.S. could spark nuclear war

"All of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases". President Trump and the broader administration have said Soleimani was working to orchestrate an "imminent" attack targeting US personnel and facilities in justifying the killing, though Democrats have been raising questions about what evidence the administration has that an attack was indeed "imminent" and the administration has so far refused to declassify that intelligence.

Trump said Soleimani directed the recent attacks on USA personnel in Iraq that "badly wounded four service members and killed one American" and he orchestrated "the violent assault" on the US.

President Trump issued his first statement in regards to Iran's missile attack while taking to Twitter Tuesday, where he stated the USA has "the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world".

In a short address on Wednesday on fracas with Iran, Trump claimed that "Iran appears to be standing down", and said Americans should be grateful and relieved that no lives were lost in Iran's missile attack on the bases, mainly because on account of "an early warning system that worked very well".

But after suggesting a major military conflict in an election year, Trump may be reconsidering whether to follow through on his own rhetoric, especially given that Iran's missile launch appears to have been calibrated to send a message of strength by hitting specific military targets without killing us forces. He said he wanted to offer Iran an off-ramp talk "without preconditions", he told reporters.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made clear that Iran's ballistic missile strikes were in revenge for the U.S. killing of Revolutionary Guard General Qassem Soleimani, whose death last week in an American drone strike in Baghdad prompted angry calls to avenge his slaying and drew crowds of Iranians, said to number in the millions, to the streets to mourn him.

Soleimani, the head of the Revolutionary Guards' foreign operations arm, the Quds Force, was killed last week in a United States drone strike near Baghdad global airport.

Officials have said there were no U.S. casualties as a result of the attacks, though a full assessment is underway.

"All is well!" Trump tweeted Tuesday evening. The U.S. also notified the Iraqis when the missile strike was taking place, the prime minister said.

It also said U.S. helicopters and military equipment were "severely damaged", adding Iran's Revolutionary Guards had 100 other targets in the region in its sights if Washington fought back.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday morning that he will be imposing new economic sanctions on Iran. While Iranian state media claimed the plane crashed due to technical difficulties, speculation was rife that it was hit by a stray missile, a theory compounded by Iran's refusal to hand over the plane's black boxes to Boeing.
