Iran Could Use U.S. Network to Retaliate for Soleimani's Death
Steve Gruber: World to understand it better Ryan Morrow is the director of the Clarion Intelligence Network Ryan. Welcome back to the program.
Ryan Mauro:Thanks so much for having me.
Steve Gruber: Let's start with the death of General Qasam Soleimani. How significant in your estimation is that to the Iranians ability to direct terrorist attacks throughout the Middle East or anywhere else in the world?
Ryan Mauro: Oh, it's massive. I mean people should not be out there saying oh well Kill this leader then they just replace them. That's not how this works with this guy. He's extraordinary really talented. That's not my favorite word. But experience does count relationships do count talent does count and I don't think they're going to be able to replace them. They may be able to get someone who is familiar with his strategy and it's still a threat but someone to his level probably not in to understand the significance of this I I would say the best way to care it would be of in the Iranian regime. The supreme leader is like Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars then we just killed Darth Vader. Your not going to be able to replace Darth Vader.
