Barry Donadio, a former member of the U.S. Secret Service and Anti-Terrorist Consultant says that Iran's next move may be to kidnap or kill an American General in the Middle East among other possibilities
Barry Donadio is warning American Generals that are serving in the middle eastern theater to take extraordinary security measures for their own personal safety. The United States military recently targeted and killed the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. What many people don't understand is that this attack would be the same as another country taking out one of our Generals on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In other words, It's huge and a step away from the status quo regarding American military responses to Iran's strategy in the middle eastern region.
"Iran will retaliate, there is no doubt in my mind." said Donadio. "Iran will need to boldly reply or risk losing all credibility in the region." "Even if they know they can't win a war against the United States, they will counter attack U.S. interests within a month" he said.
Donadio said a sophisticated drone attack will most likely target a high-ranking American General or Diplomatic Official to show a measured response to the targeting of General Soleimani. Iran will need to articulate that the response is rational and not reckless in the world court of opinion. Many countries are watching to see what will happen, including Russia and China.
Donadio suggests that all U.S. Military Generals take the appropriate counter-drone security measures, counter-surveillance measures, and executive protection measures. They should never underestimate the possibility of being targeted by Iranian agents or their proxies.
Iran may also seek to achieve a 2nd Bengazi that they can use to sensationalize in the media. U.S embassies in the region should remain of full alert for potential attacks. Iran may also act through their proxy Hezbollah by attacking U.S. interests in the region in order to score a quick media victory displaying their reply to the killing of General Soleimani.
