Donald Trump has warned he has a list of "52 Iranian targets" that would be "hit very fast and very hard" should Iran strike any Americans or US assets in retaliation for the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani.
The President of the US tweeted that ''Iran is talking boldly'' but he added that the US had got rid of a terror leader.
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....

Mr. Trump went on to say that the US has recently spent "two trillion dollars on military equipment".
Those masquerading as diplomats and those who shamelessly sat to identify Iranian cultural & civilian targets should not even bother to open a law dictionary.
Jus cogens refers to peremptory norms of international law, i.e. international red lines. That is, a big(ly) "no no".
