President Trump threatened to commit war crimes by destroying sites "important to Iran and Iranian culture" in an unhinged tweet on Saturday evening.

"Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian protesters," Trump tweeted. "He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations."

He continued: "Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!"

ISIS destroys cultural sites. What type of lunacy is this?

Destroying cultural sites is a war crime under the unanimously-adopted UN Resolution 2347.

We voted for you to put America First and get out of foreign wars -- not to start a new war with Iran and destroy their ancient cultural heritage sites!
