It's been a while since I started thinking whether, in an event of war between the Iranian regime and the US, the US military would kill the high ranking clerics of the Iranian regime.
Well, the US government hesitated in killing a junior Iraqi thug called Muqtada Al-Sadr for the fear of insulting his followers or inciting a hate crime. Some thing to that effect... Let's put it this way: They were scared of following uprisings by his tiny minority of followers that they didn't kill him when the opportunity presented itself.
Therefore I am wondering if, in case of any real war, they would detain or kill Khamenei or other high ranking Shiite clerics of the regime.
What do you think?!
P.S: I am not implying that we should sit on our hands waiting for any external force to come in and free us. Not at all. I'm just asking a mere question on possibility. Thnx!
