Hamid Al-Husseini, the Secretary-General of the Union of Iraqi Radio and TV Networks, said in a December 12, 2020 interview on Asia TV (Iraq) that if the Americans do not leave Iraq, they will be fought and expelled down to the last man. He said that the Iraqi resistance fighters will either be killed or be victorious, and that when their leaders Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis were martyred, this only increased the insistence of the resistance that these "bastards must leave our pure country." For more about Hamid Al-Husseini, see MEMRITV clips No. 8276 and No. 7153.

Interviewer: "A year ago, you said: 'We will devour the American embassy if we are given the green light.' Do you still abide by your threat?"

Hamid Al-Husseini: "As a man of the resistance, I say that if they do not leave Iraq, we will fight them until we expel every last one of them. We will either be killed, or we will achieve victory. Our leaders are Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and Hajj Qasem Soleimani. Our leaders are the martyrs who have sacrificed [their lives]. When these martyrs were killed in that manner, it only increased our vigor, our support, and our insistence that these bastards must leave our pure country."
