For the first time in Modern history, mosques in Iran have raised the Red Flag of Doom; the flag of Blood and Severe Battle ahead. This is the first time in modern history the flags have been raised outside of a specific Memorial Day. The image above shows the flag being raised over the Dome Of Jamkarān Mosque, Qom Iran.
It's official: war is coming between Iran and the USA. There's no doubt now. They will attack us over the killing of their General, Qasem Sulaimani.
The flag refers to a Shia martyr Husayn, grandson of the prophet, who was beheaded and along with his family defeated at battle of Karbala. It took 5 years to wreak vengeance on Husayn's enemy, Yazid. The flag means vengeance may take time but it will be inevitable and sure.
The red flag reads: “Ya Ila Thirat al Hussein”, roughly translating to “O’ the avengers of Hussein.” Shi‘a tradition maintains that the slogan surfaced during the subsequent uprising for the vengeance of Hussein’s martyrdom in the 7th century, an effort that continued for 5 years.

UPDATE 10:51 AM EST --
The President of Iran has appointed a successor to the slain General Qasem Sulaimani: Esmail Ghaani
Esmail Ghaani is a long-time associate – and friend – of his predecessor.
A new Iranian general has stepped out of the shadows to lead the country’s expeditionary Quds Force, becoming responsible for Tehran’s proxies across the Middle East as the Islamic Republic threatens the US with “harsh revenge” for killing its previous head Qassem Soleimani.
The Quds Force is part of the 125,000-strong Revolutionary Guard, a paramilitary organisation that answers only to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The Guard oversees Iran’s ballistic missile program, has its naval forces shadow the US Navy in the Persian Gulf, and includes an all-volunteer Basij force.
Like his predecessor, a young Esmail Ghaani faced the carnage of Iran’s eight-year war with Iraq in the 1980s and later joined the newly-founded Quds, or Jerusalem, Force.
While much still remains unknown about Ghaani, 62, Western sanctions suggest he has long been in a position of power in the organization.
One of his first duties is likely to be overseeing whatever revenge Iran intends to seek for the US air strike early on Friday that killed his friend Soleimani.
According to Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency, Ghaani once said of his relationship with Soleimani: “We are children of war. We are comrades on the battlefield and we have become friends in battle.”
A senior military official in Iran threatened an attack on some 35 “American targets,” including “destroyers and warships” near the Persian Gulf Friday night, promising to seek revenge for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, according to a report.
The latest threat against the U.S. came late Friday night from senior Revolutionary Guards commander Gen. Gholamali Abuhamzeh, a day after top Iranian military general Soleimani was wiped out by an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport.
Abuhamzeh, commander of the Revolutionary Guards in the southern province of Kerman, foreshadowed a possible attack on “vital American targets” located in the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation of Soleimani’s death.
An alert brigade of roughly 4,000 paratroopers, known as the DRB – the Division Ready Brigade – had been told to pack their bags for a possible deployment in the days ahead, after hundreds of Iranian-backed militiamen tried to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad Tuesday.
The U.S. Army always keeps an alert brigade of roughly 4,000 paratroopers in the 82nd Airborne for a crisis response like this.
There are roughly 5,000 U.S. troops currently deployed to Iraq, and about 60,000 in the region. Some 14,000 have been added since May as the threat from Iran increased, according to the Pentagon.
MULTIPLE TERROR STRIKES INSIDE USA
As this situation deteriorates further, it is now widely expected in Intelligence Circles, that multiple and repeated terror attacks will be launched inside the United States. Civilians are strongly advised to PREPARE. Here is a link for suggested preparation items (HERE). DON'T WAIT. Once the fighting starts, everything will sell out in minutes.
