Iran threatening to strike on US soil

According to the intelligence community’s 2022 Annual Threat Assessment, issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Iran will threaten Americans directly and through proxy strikes, and Tehran remains determined to creating networks within the United States (ODNI).

The U.S. government considers Iran to be the foremost state sponsor of terrorism — spending more than one billion dollars on terrorist financing annually — and there are between 140,000 and 185,000 IRGC-Quds Force partner forces in Afghanistan, Gaza, Lebanon, Pakistan, Syria, and Yemen.

A worsening conflict with Iran would have significant economic, political, and security implications for the United States.

Iran confrontation could trigger an escalation of proxy warfare in countries like Syria and Yemen, or an increase in Iranian missile strikes targeting the seventy thousand U.S. troops in the Middle East.
