US military is a terrorist entity: Iran

The ongoing US-Iran tensions have seen a major development today with Iran declaring the US military as a terrorist entity.  As per the Shia regional power, US forces are all terrorists from today.  This comes days after the Trump administration got Gen. Major Qassem Soleimani, Iran's second most powerful person, killed in an airstrike.  

Amidst the rising stakes, the US has denied a visa to Iran's Foreign Minister, a move that has come in for much flak.  CNN commentator Keith Boykin says, "The Trump administration has denied a visa to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to attend a United Nations Security Council meeting in New York on Thursday, in an apparent violation of the 1947 U.N. headquarters agreement.”

The international conflict has had an impact on American politics.  Columnist Stephen Collinson says, "The Trump administration is making increasingly frantic attempts to justify the killing of Iranian General Qasem Suleimani... at the same time, the fierce dispute over impeachment is intensifying." 

Meanwhile, US Senator Bernie Sanders today pledged that he will do everything in his power to "stop Trump from starting a war with Iran".  Speaking to CNN, he said, “I will do everything I can as a US Senator, in terms of the War Powers Act… in terms of defunding any effort of the Trump admin. to go to war… to stop what I think will be another disaster."
