i mean, if you're gonna hold trump accountable for his war crimes then shouldn't all of the other post-war modern presidents be held at trial at the hague for theirs too?


Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is calling for former President Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to face trial for the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a January 2020 drone strike ordered by Trump.

Raisi, in a speech on Monday, said Trump and Pompeo should be “tried in a fair court” for the assassination of Soleimani. He called Trump an "aggressor," "murderer" and the "main culprit."

“If Trump and Pompeo are not tried in a fair court for the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani, Muslims will take our martyr's revenge,” Raisi said, according to Reuters.

“The aggressor, murderer and main culprit — the then-president of the United States — must be tried and judged under the [Islamic] law of retribution, and God's ruling must be carried out against him,” Raisi added.

"We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war," Trump said in a statement the next day.

Pompeo also defended the airstrike, saying “we’re definitely safer today.”

Iranian judicial officials have determined 127 suspects connected to the case, which includes 74 U.S. nationals, Reuters reported, citing Prosecutor-General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri’s remarks to state television.

Montazeri, however, said “The criminal former president is at the top of the list,” referring to Trump.
