War Is Coming: US Strike Assasinated Qods Force’s Soleimani. Iran Promised ‘Tough Revenge’

Donate

On January 3, US strikes on the Iraqi capital of Baghdad killed Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Qods Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU).

HINT: The Qods Force is the unit responsible for the IRGC’s extraterritorial operations. The US considers it to be a terrorist organization. Soleimani as the head of the Qods Force became widely known to the international audience for the successful participation in the war on ISIS in Syria and Iraq, operations with Hezbollah and the PMU.

The PMU is an official part of the Iraqi Armed Forces and the most military capable branch of the Iraqi military that has been involved in the war on ISIS. Al-Muhandis is the second-in-command of the PMU and the head of Kataib Hezbollah. This organization is an official part of the PMU. The US describes Kataib Hezbollah as a terrorist group. On December 29, the US Air Force conducted strikes on Kataib Hezbollah positions on the Syrian-Iraqi border. Washington says that it was responsible for recent rocket shellings on US facilities in Iraq.

Iran’s IRGC confirmed the death of both commanders in an official statement on the incident. The PMU also released an official confirmation.

“The deputy head of the Hashed, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and head of the Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, were killed in a US strike that targeted their car on the Baghdad International Airport road,” the PMU said in a statement.

“The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani,” Ahmed al-Assadi, a PMU spokesman, said.

Earlier on the same day, the PMU said that its public relations director Mohammed Reza al-Jaberi and four other members of the group were also killed after three rockets struck a military base next to Baghdad International Airport. The attack was described as “cowardly US bombing”.

Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said those who assassinated the IRGC’s Soleimani must await a tough revenge.

He said that the “cruelest people on earth” assassinated the “honorable” commander who “courageously fought for years against the evils and bandits of the world.”

“Martyr Soleimani is an international figure of the Resistance, and all the devotees of Resistance are now his avengers,” he said.

“All the friends and foes must know that the path of Jihad of the Resistance will continue with double motivation, and a definite victory awaits those who fight in this auspicious path,” the Leader said.

“The demise of our selfless and dear general is bitter, but the continued fight and achievement of the final victory will make life bitterer for the murderers and criminals,” he added.

The Iranian President’s comment:

The strike that killed Soleimani and al-Muhandis was ordered by US President Donald Trump. His first official comment:

The official statement by the US Department of Defense:

At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. He had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months – including the attack on December 27th – culminating in the death and wounding of additional American and Iraqi personnel. General Soleimani also approved the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad that took place this week.

This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.

The assassination of the Qods Force’s Qassem Soleimani and the PMU’s Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is a major escalation in the region and a notable blow to Iran. The Iranian leadership cannot ignore this development and leave it unanswered. Most likely, right now Iran and its allies are preparing an answer to the US military action.

In July 2019, SouthFront released a video analysis on Iran’s Qods Force and its operations:

    This some bullshit! R.i.p

  • John Wallace

    This does not leave much room for Iran not too respond . By doing this America must expect a response that will up the ante and a step closer to all out war. They must feel confident of victory and minimal losses but this has the potential to tip the world into a massive depression by skyrocketing oil price with the ME set ablaze in tit for tat missile attacks. The outcome can not be good for anyone. No wonder the sudden increases in gold and silver today..

  • Selbstdenker

    obviousely, US needs another war fast, hence they stir the wasps nest with a big stick.
    I wonder what is going on that they need this distraction?

    • verner

      I agree the unhinged states of A needs a war to stave off a budding financial collapse (23000billion $$ national debt) but the real beneficiary here is israel that has been working towards a war wtih Iran a long long time, not on their own but using the unhinged nitwits in washington dc for the purpose.

      I however don’t think the death of soleimani will mean all that much so rest assured that there is a competent replacement ready to step in with a set of methods that will mean the end of israel. after all, what has israel done to deserve to continue to exist – murder galore, thieving galore, lebensraum program coupled with the ethnical cleansing program and operating concentration camp gaza. the quicker the israelis are 6 feet under pushing up daisies the better it will be for the world!

    • Ivan Freely

      Many possibilities on what they’re trying to distract the public eye from.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I agree. It must be something big that affects both sides in the US.

      A common denominator is ‘Kiddy Fiddling’ by the elite in the US and Israel.

      • Karen Bartlett

        Perhaps their murders of thousands of civilians in Palestine and Yemen, both of which the US gov’t supports, not to mention their support of ISIS, is becoming too well known in world opinion. Not on MSM, of course, but via internet on alternative news sites.

  • Veritas Vincit

    As the US expands criminal actions (being violations of international law) in conjunction with Israel (that is concurrently conducting many missile strikes against targets in Syria and Iraq (conforming to aggression), their current celebrations indicate they do not yet understand the consequences of their actions. In time they shall understand.

    – “I hope all Israelis will listen carefully to what I say: Netanyahu, his government and military officials did not correctly evaluate the magnitude this war will reach if they succeed to light its fires. What will be its extent, what will be its territory, who will participate on it, who will enter it… Netanyahu, his government and military officials do not know how this war will end if they start it……

    ……I now call first all Jews except the Zionists to detach their considerations from Zionist calculations who lead themselves to their final destruction. And I call on all those who came in occupied Palestine believing the promises that they would find the land of milk and honey to leave. I call them to leave Palestine and go back to the countries from which they came so that they don’t become mere fuel in any war where would lead them the stupid Netanyahu government. For if Netanyahu launched a war in this region, there may be no more time for them to leave Palestine, and there will be no safe place for them in occupied Palestine……

    …..the scale of the massacres committed by Israel against the Palestinian people and the peoples of the region, its partnership with Daesh and its open complicity in the project of partition of our region through its open and eager support to the secession of Kurdistan, all this will push the people of the region to render a capital verdict against them.” [Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah]

    As the US (and particularly Israel) continues to engage in actions of aggression (in violation of international law) against successive strategic opponents, despite the current restraint by targeted nations, limits of restraint will almost certainly in time be exceeded.

    – The Coming Middle East Conflagration, Michael Oren [former Israeli Ambassador to the United States], The Atlantic, November 4, 2019) [Excerpts] “The senior ministers of the Israeli government met twice last week to discuss the possibility of open war with Iran. ….. Israeli troops, especially in the north, have been placed on war footing. Israel is girding for the worst and acting on the assumption that fighting could break out at any time. And it’s not hard to imagine how it might arrive. The conflagration, like so many in the Middle East, could be ignited by a single spark. Israeli fighter jets have already conducted hundreds of bombing raids against Iranian targets in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. ….. The result could be a counterstrike by Iran, using cruise missiles that penetrate Israel’s air defenses and smash into targets like the Kiryah, Tel Aviv’s equivalent of the Pentagon. Israel would retaliate massively against Hezbollah’s headquarters in Beirut as well as dozens of its emplacements along the Lebanese border. And then, after a day of large-scale exchanges, the real war would begin.” [End]

    Recognising recent changes in regional security architecture, the eventual situation is likely to be in a multi-front format (a regional conflagration). Also recognising Israeli moves to Judaise key Islamic sites, the likely approaching conflagration will almost certainly have a Holy War component:

    – Hamas says Israeli violations at al-Aqsa will ignite ‘all-out regional war’, PressTV, Oct 21, 2019

    – “The gathering holy war. Slowly, Israel is transforming a settler-colonial project against the Palestinians into a battle with the wider Islamic world. It is turning a territorial conflict into a holy war.” (How the Rule of the Rabbis Is Fueling a Holy War in Israel, by Jonathan Cook, Antiwar, February 23, 2019)

    • d’Artagnan

      I spent the summer in Iran on the Persian Gulf coast, Iranians are brave fatalistic people, the clerical regime is oppressive and corrupt and perhaps still has the majority support, but these blatant acts of US aggression will make Iranians rally around the flag, they are a proud ancient nation where nationalism runs very deep like Russia. There will be a response, but a very unexpected and long one. Persians think in centuries not 20 second sound bites.

    • Black Waters

      You can’t, that’s why the real opposition it’s being built from inside.

  • Judgement

    The U.S. still owes Iran for 1979 (embassy siege). Most Americans would be delighted for a pretext to crush the Iranian mullahs like an insect.

    • d’Artagnan

      I don’t believe it will be that easy, but time will tell, so contain your childish glee from the safety of your armchair.

    • verner

      think you’re wrong – most americans would like to see washington concentrating the use of resources back home and not in some frivolous warring around the world which just benefits very few and basically not the society. but a 50m$ bounty on trump’s head etc will possibly change the mind of washington to the benefit of the american people.

    • Paul

      If the CIA had their way in 1979, thousands of Iranians would’ve been slaughtered, so stop talking about things you nothing about you idiot. Most Americans are like you, ignorant.

    • John Wallace

      1979 was repayment for Americas assassination of Iran’s democratically elected leader and the imposition of the despotic Shah in 1953. Don’t forget the reason.

      • d’Artagnan

        Actually, US has illegally frozen Iran’s assets worth $175 BILLION in today’s dollars since 1979.

        • John Wallace

          Didn’t Obama return some in cash and non US dollars. Found it. The $400 million was paid in cash and flown to Tehran on a cargo plane. The arrangement provided for the interest to be paid later. That interest is 1.3 billion. The money was Iran’s held by America. for a military deal gone sour because of the Shah being deposed. Many thought it was Obama Giving Iran the money.

          • d’Artagnan

            Yes, I believe it all added up to around $400 million out of BILLIONS frozen.

          • John Wallace

            I remember it because they went to great length to insure it was all in cash and not one USD so it was made up with multiple countries currencies in cash. Of course there is much more still owing which has been held up by Trumps changing the rules.. Not sure how much is involved.

    • AJ

      The US owed Iran long before for organising the 1953 coup.

    • Ewan

      The US owes Iran ?- another hasbara/redneck brainless statement. It was the US that overthrew their democratically elected president Mossadegh, installed the brutal Shah’s regime which the Mullah’s overthrew. Iran still owes the US… perhaps they should put a price on Soleimanis life- say 1000 US marines and 1000 IDF for every Shia commander killed by US/Israhell.

  • d’Artagnan

    Trump is a cowardly madman desperate to start a war for the Zionists and also to deflect from his impeachment trial. However, this is totally illegal murder of a foreign military leader with which the US is not is a declared state of war, so this legally qualifies as STATE SANCTIONED TERRORISM. Just imagine if Iran had assassinated a US general in Iraq. Iranians are very calm, patient and shrewd people and there will be retribution for sure, but not like Saddam’s or Baghdad Bob’s hollow rants. From a military perspective murdering a few middle aged men with a drone strike is not a big deal, but the consequences will be far lethal and strategic. Iran’s only mistake was not to react when US and Zionists killed other Iranians and also sending Soleimani to Baghdad at a time of high tensions. Perhaps the Iranian generals are fatalistic and obviously very courageous. Now let’s see how the region ignites.

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      when i first read this tonight i was so angry i lost all my appetite, i really hope iran gives a SEVERE blow to america

      • d’Artagnan

        My friend, Shia in particular are always ready to die, it is mix of nationalism and faith. Soleimani was a brave man and was severely wounded in the Iran-Iraq war and still returned to the frontlines in bandages, so believe he knew that US and Zionists will try to kill him and accepted his fate. Same as Nasrallah. However, the post Iraq war generation in Iranian military is even more deadly and committed. As I have posted before, Rouhani is the weak link, Iran needs Ahmedinejad again. Be patient, this will be a very long and bloody conflict.

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          i agree, iran needs stronger, meaner leaders who dont let its enemies get away with things

          • d’Artagnan

            The worst decision made by the clergy, as they were threatened by an honest veteran like Ahmadinejad was to get rid of him. Secondly, the worst tactical mistake was not to react to Zionist attacks and killing of Iranian officers in Syria. Both, Zarif and Rouhani have to go. Just watch how all this unfolds.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            yes, iran needs the toughest, meanest, yet also most intelligent leaders and advisers it has ever had, to really defeat its enemies

          • d’Artagnan

            From the advent of warfare, it is necessary to stand up to bullies, Iranian leadership since the overthrow of Ahmedinejad has been very weak, fragmented and confused. Zarif has done immense damage to Iran by showing weakness. Khamenei is old and there seems to be a policy vacuum from what I saw. Perhaps, this is good time for the Sepah to step in.

          • bob

            It sounds more like the perfect time for the whole failing dictatorship to implode

          • Black Waters

            I agree, but like you say, being smart it makes you take sometimes actions that aren’t seeing right at the moment, but in the long term it gives you an advantage that you wouldn’t be able to have the other way around.

            My advice will be, eat your pride and develop your nation. It will be a time for revenge, but revenge it’s a dish that needs to be serve cold.
            In the meantime i dunno, create a monument or something of this man.

            PD: Iran should focus on developing their influence in the region also, this is vital for the next 10-20 years.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            the best revenge for iran would be to fulfill all of soleimani’s wishes, the complete removal of US from the region

          • Ronald

            Iraq will eject the US from Iraq, let that step happen.
            Victory loves preparation.

            Defensive is Iran’s best position.

            And which Iran are you talking about?

            I’m already older than the current version

            And I’ve lived long enough to see a whole bunch of other dictatorship go under

            Although it seems the people in Iran,Syria,Venezuela,Russia and China ain’t learnt jack shit

            Ok they may survive, but to what purpose?

            Will they be dynamic globally significant economies?

            Will Russia or Syria or Iran create a bunch of glob corporations, you know world class brands?

            No, only China will, and as I’ve said before, but I’ll have to repeat myself, they’ve only got what they have because of the free western and more dynamic economies investing there which won’t be happening again, because the fact is they’ve relentlessly stolen and taken the piss,thank god for Trump he’s called the cheating stealing bastards out, and he’s right to do so

    US should have been thrown out of Iraq long ago and this is the result when Iraqi politicians are US puppets. The US is now well established in Syria and Iraq. The only way to get them out now is through an uprising and guerilla warfare. Unfortunately the Syrians, Iraqis have left it too long and one doubts if Russia will buy into the conflict.

    • d’Artagnan

      Realistically, Iraq is a failed occupied state where the US and Zionists have many collaborators in the Kurdish and Sunni communities and that is why US has been able to occupy it as spread terror, but killing a foreign military officer in cold blood is another matter and the consequences will be far reaching.

      • gustavo

        This open declaration of war is exactly what USA-Israel want to destroy Iran. The question is …..will Russia allow this trying to avoid a nuclear war ? Maybe Russia-USA will hava a talk and will try to calm down all of this, but will IRAN calm down under this USA-Israel treat ?

        • Karen Bartlett

          I think the Iranians won’t do anything without being calm.As D’Artagnan said, they are extremely smart people. Their civilization is thousands of years old, back to the BC’s. And they’re discussing the situation now. The country is also in three days of official mourning.

    • verner

      the problem is that iraq would like them to leave but since the unhinged states of A has decided to stay, iraq can’t do much about it. do you think the unhinged states of A would leave germany if it was asked to leave – no way, the same for italy and so on. so it is still basically an occupation residual from ww2.

          “hegemonial rampage”

          The US military was allowed to operate in Iraq for one reason and one reason only …. to defeat ISIS. Those PMU units you attacked were the primary force on the ground that defeated ISIS in cooperation with the US military.

          Your president ordered air strikes against an ally, that were units of the Iraqi military …. they were employees of your host government …. for an attack on US soldiers that were 500KM from where they were stationed.

          And you say Iran was on a “hegemonial rampage” …. the USA is on a batshit crazy rampage in the middle east.

          There is no question ….. you may as well save lives on both sides and board up the US embassy in Bagdad and get the fuck out. This is a self inflicted wound.

          Iran isn’t going to attack the USA the way you think they are …. they’re already doing it and strikes like the one against the PMU’s are how

      If the Iraqi Parliament votes to demand that the US leave, the US will have no choice but to leave.

      The US servicemen will be susceptible to being taken hostage. I can picture hundreds of checkpoints set up by both the Iraqi Army and the PMU’s, with arrest warrants for any US person caught. The US will not be able to move anywhere.

      • d’Artagnan

        My friend, you people don’t realize the depth of US and Zionist control over the Kurdish regions next to Iran, that is what needs to be hit hard.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The head Iranian mullah Khamenei needs to get his head out of his arse and smell the roses, the lardass Americunt mofos are cowards, thugs and bullies who only understand force. Iran needs to have nuclear weapons, just look at deadbeat Pakistan, it has killed more Americunts in Afghanistan via its “Taliban” and can go Scott Free as it has nukes. Its airforce shoots down Indian aircraft at will, parades the captured pilots and daily kills Indians in Kashmir and India can do fuckall. Iran is vulnerable because the Ruskies and Chinks are kissing Americunt arse and will not sell it serious weaponry and the Americunts know it. Only a protracted guerilla war and nukes will keep the Americunt and Zionist hyenas at bay. RIP to Qassem Soliemani, he was brave warrior, not very prudent though to step into the snake pit at Baghdad without any precautions.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        and PS fuck the Jews who are real evil. To inflict pain to the Americunts, if the Jew vermin get whacked then it hits the pain threshold. The key to liberating the region is the destruction of the Zionist arseholes who use the braindead Americunts as cannon fodder. This latest act of Americunt terrorism must not go unpunished as it will only invite more acts of Americunt terror in the region, especially in Lebanon. Now DOWNVOTE that you Jew fuck arselickers :)

      • Chris Gr

        You are sick in the head.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      The USA is well established but the question is how do they keep these establishments supplied?And it’s well know that the US military relies on air superiority to keep their ground forces safe so how do they accomplish that?

      If you look at a map the route through Jordan requires the cooperation of the Russians who are the USA #1 enemy and control the airspace over western Syria. The USA has sanctioned the Turks so supply through Turkey isn’t a given. Right now they supply their troops in Syria through iraq …. they could still overfly Iraq by force but that won’t be cheap and Iraq could Russian, Chinese or iranian SAM’s that would make supplying US forces in Syria very expensive.

      Being surrounded by millions of hostile forces you are either at war with or have sanctioned and having fly water into the country through contested air space which would make the cost of water hundreds of USD/liter would be strategically questionable. Those helicopters that support US troops in Syria would no longer be parked safe in Iraq between missions but would be well within range of mortar’s and rocket artillery. The mission in Syria would become extremely dangerous.

    • d’Artagnan

      I don’t think mature Iranians will act in haste. They are determined people who gave the world chess and polo, one for the brain and the other for the brawn. Iran has many strategic options and it will exercise them as the opportunity arises. However, I fear for the region and massive loss of life everywhere. Just look at the region from Libya to Afghanistan. A war with Iran is the last thing the global economy can withstand.

      • verner

        I doubt Iran will do anything in anger, after all it’s part of a general’s life that death may come at an unexpected moment, but rest assured that a) soleimani has nursed some very competent replacements of himself and b) that those replacements will work even harder to get to israel, with more cunning and with more dedication than even soleiman put on display. so let’s hope that 2020 will be the last year of israel’s existence as an illegal settlement in the middle east and the perpetrators (the hymies) are 6 feet under before the sun settles on 2020.

        • d’Artagnan

          That would be the sensible course. Iran should slowly increase the temperature for the US occupation forces in the region, like a frog in a pan. US needs to bleed to death. That is what the Algerians, Afghans, Yemenis and Vietnamese have very successfully done. Also Iran needs to test a nuclear weapon.

          • verner

            yep, close discussions with kim jung un and voila, Iran might be a nuclear loaded state competent to send the hymies to the bottom of the sea (the Med) or at least 6 feet under, pushing daisies galore.

            an illegal settlement that has made murder and thievery the tools they prefer to use and which is applying the principles of Hitler’s lebensraum program in stealing more palestinian land and which is using hitler’s concentration camp plan for their own ethnical cleansing of all palestinians in the use of concentration camp Gaza. what to like about the jews – nothing much.

            and in conclusion, the jews are stealing palestine’s gas and trying to sell it to europe which is something the European Union must put a stop to (talk about thievery being part of the jewish genome – it truly is laughable, at least until they all are 6 feet under fertilizing the soil for the palestinians).

        • Zionism = EVIL

          God does not exist, but a nuclear weapon does. The problem with Muslims is that they don’t get with the program. Iran is dealing with pure Americunt and Zionist evil, mostly alone and has no other option but to have nukes. The geriatric Khamenei needs to have his brain hemorrhoids removed as the Americunts will be emboldened to drop bombs on his home in North Tehran if Iran does not retaliate..

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            I believe God does exist, I’m just not sure what his plan is with soleimanis death, I only hope it marks the beginning of the end for us and zionists in the region, and yea I agree khamenei and rouhani and zarif need to be much tougher and take no shit from anyone

          • Karen Bartlett

            if I could like this fifty times, I would. Don’t worry, while God didn’t plan Gen. Soleimani’s death, he knew the murder would occur. And I believe His plan is the end of this era and the start of His “will on earth as it is in heaven”. Same as it always was.

            Be patient. At the moment, Trump is going to Davos (21 January 2020) with his begging bowl and expecting a bonus, for getting the first part started. However, Trump and friends are desperate for war, before January 31 2020, which is when the US runs out of money and the printers are running out. If Iran kicks back, at the moment, then it is what Trump and Washington want. However, if they look at other ways of making Washington pay, including economically and do not strike back, until after the deadline, then surely that would be a far better punishment? Don’t give the globalists what they want, but, when the time is right.

            Justice is a desert best served cold, calmly, rationally and with impeccable timing.

            RIP to all and deepest sympathy to the people of Iran and Iraq.

        • gustavo

          It is not possible for Iran to face war with USA-Israel and be victorious without the help of Russia-China. The involvement of Russia-China in a possible war of Iran against USA-Israel would mean nuclear war, and this would mean the end of human kind. Now, it is very interesting to see the wild behavior of USA-Israel in the middle east, maybe they have a secret plan and think that the can win a nuclear war. My guess is that USA-Israel are wrong and have not idea of Russia-China capabilities (this remaind me Germany with Hitler).

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          • AM Hants

            Not forgetting that when the US pulled out of the nuclear treaty, which took over a decade to agree with Iran, they were surprised that the other signatories of the agreement refused to join the US.

            Has anybody noticed that none of the leaders have congratulated Trump on his war crime? Taking out a General, from another nation, who was invited by a sovereign nation, to attend a state funeral for 39 members of the military, that the US took out. In the nation where the US were guests? Trump never even bothered telling Congress he was declaring war on both Iran and Iraq, because Bibi was in a tight spot and needed help. Now Pompeo is whinging that nobody is supporting and backing Trump’s decision.

            Well, with all the cheering from Pence, Pompeo and Graham, would they hear the support or condemnation from other nations?

      You should be smart, don’t let them get you heat up like they want. Iran needs to still build up their forces, the way to fight the U.S it’s not by brute force, you don’t have nuclear weapons, there are other means to make war.

      • d’Artagnan

        That is the mature and strategic course and that is how the canny Iranians will play it. I have talked with many of their senior officers and they know how to defend their country, but some are resentful of Khamenei’s dictat of not allowing nuclear weapons.

        • AM Hants

          Must admit, and I have said it often, that Iran’s non-tactile weapons are more interesting than nuclear weapons.

          When the USS Donald Cook, turned up in the Black Sea, believing she could take Sevastopol from Russia, how the world laughed at the traumatised US sailors. They were stuck in the middle of the Black Sea, with Bastion smiling at them, locked on, (oh, sorry that was the previous day, when they were the only ship in the Black Sea, who had to do a figure of 8 turn). Sorry, the little Russian military jet, with the whicker basket full of Iranian Magrav Technology, passed above the USS Donald Cook, a few times, leaving her stuck in the middle of the Black Sea, with no systems, weapons or anything electrical working. The sailors were traumatised, but, not taken out and neither were innocent civillians, but, look how stupid the US forces looked? Plus, military sales, well, not a good look.

          To be honest, that was back in 2014 and can you imagine what Iran possesses in her toybox, that can effectively humiliate their enemy on the world stage? Far nicer and more effective, than just turning the planet into particles of thermo-nuclear ash.

      For the US to target a high ranking officer of another country in a terrorist attack especially in a third country is a war crime of the highest proportions.

    • John

      Gr8ambino…. you have posted here a longtime and many, many times on various things we have agreed. I don’t think what you posted here is BS so, this one is for you amigo…..

      As I was reading the news at about 10:30pm, my time in Brasil, when I started to pack it in. It was very quiet. However, two things were in my head. One was Soleimani …. I had the feeling for a while, maybe one or two months, that his time was up. I get that a lot with people, near to and far from me. The other was mumblings coming out of the US State and Def departments. It just felt all weird and something inside me reached the conclusion that they were going keep going no matter what.

      At that point something inside of me just threw in the towel. Not to give up being one voice against what is going on but, to accept that stuff is going to get ground up but good, before sanity comes back into play. After ready one article on Al-Monitor that had the US Secretary of Defense giving his version of reality …….. I thought, eh f .. it.

      So in my comment, which I addressed to the ‘Sec Def’ i posted this link ….

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ogY3PxLpCk

      It is the Hives and their song … Go Right Ahead…..

      Imagine the surprise of the people over at NSA when that came across their radar. Unknowingly, I had outted an assassination mission with a Presidential Classification. They know, I had no way to know, no connection to anything going on. That one is going to haunt some some them for a while.

      The point is that the pinhead that ordered this is in trouble. Just the way the US Military distanced itself from this by telling everybody that ‘Trump’ had ordered it, tells me there are big internal problems in D.C. about this.

      We tried of a long time to tell these chimps that they wee in something better left back in hell. Now, they have opened a very serious door, without a clue as to what lay behind it. You and others tried gr8rambino, don’t think otherwise.

          Al-Monitor blocked my post, as it was going on, they knew what it was.

      • AM Hants

        Interesting comment, especially if the sane members of the US military are distancing themselves from this. Pence, Graham and Pompeo, appear to be the biggest cheerleaders. Ignoring the fact, Trump declared war on Iran and Iraq, without consulting Congress or his own teams. He took out a General, who was invited to a State Funeral, in another nation. A funeral, dedicated to 39 serving Iraq military personnel, courtesy of the US. The US were guest of Iraq, when it all happened.

        So legally where do they all stand, courtesy of Trump’s war crime?
        Plus, no world leaders have backed or supported Trump? Which has upset Pompeo, who believes Europe should back him all the way.
        Together with the fact that Trump walked away from the Iranian nuclear treaty, which took over a decade for all nations to agree on, with no support from the others who signed the treaty.

        The only nation that is happy, is Israel. Plus, what happens to pillaging the Middle East, if the US is kicked out of Iraq? Owing to Trump declaring war on both Iraq and Iran.

    • AM Hants

      Not just the news, the comments over on Gateway Pundit, from those ‘paid to post’ have seriously wound me up.

      The only good part, is the protests propping up, including over in the US, from normal people not wanting war. Reading Gateway Pundit and Daily Mail Comments, despite knowing many are from media disinformation agents, who are paid to post, it did appear that the masses were all seriously demented.

  • RamboDave

    I don’t think the US knew that Soleimani was in that motorcade. That is why it took the DOD several hours to make a statement.

    iran should now pressure Iraq to expel all US troops. That would be more than enough revenge for now.

    Rather than responding with direct attacks against the US, Iran should now proceed full speed with developing a nuclear weapon. Half the World now believes Iran is entitled to the nuclear bomb. Trump will not dare to attack because half of his supporters are fed up with these endless wars. Trump got elected because he promised them he would stop the wars. He knows he will lose the next election if he starts a war. There is now in fact an open window until November’s election for Iran to develop their bomb.

    Trumps withdrawal from the nuclear treaty will now become a widely debated issue in the election. This will be good for Iran.

      Тако раде амерички криминалци, то су учинили и Југославији 1999. године и бомбардовали Србију. Ја говорим руски, па могу написати и неки српски. US is gangster terrorists and respect for humanity or basic decency.

    Trump has managed to unite all the Shia leaders & parties like Al Sadr against the US, there will now be a huge push for legislation in parliament to remove all US forces & if they refuse we may see insurgency war similar to 2003. This just increase the dangers for US personnel everywhere.

  • Kell McBanned

    RIP General, may peace be upon you.

      And may a similar peace be upon all Islamist leaders.

        Apparently the Americans have developed a new version of the Hellfire missile, no explosives, just great big sharp blades which pop out after entering the vehicle, they then spin like mad and mince and dice those in side

        I really wouldn’t want to find out, but then i don’t need to worry, unlike the Iranian idiots and their marvellous religious dictatorship

        They really are gonna become mincemeat,Hahahahahaha

    Trump under impeachment and Nethanyahu under criminal charges …so both needs a war to distract the issues. Believe that’s what these Satan’s want… A war. Iran is hard pressed to respond or loses creditability .

      You are probably correct but that Islamist murderer deserved what he got.

    If Kim ever thought he could trust the U.S he knows better now. Get your Nukes on Kim, your gonna need them.

      DPRK already have their nukes so I doubt there is any action on that front. The talks between ROK and the US on the bill to keep US forces have stalled (IIRC). The original bill was $5 Billion which doesn’t come close to covering the cost of stationing US troops in the Korean peninsula. I believe the US is asking over $100 Billion.

  • Damien C

    This has been planned for weeks, some contractor in the arsehole of nowhere gets hit in an unexplained attack and the Yanks launch a heavy airstrike at 5 locations across two countries on PMU and Quds forces stationed there to stop ISIS and Salifist terrorists.
    Soleimani was the target all along but Trump and U.S.A needed a precurser, guess that unexplained attack on an insignificant contractor came in handy after-all.

    This is about one thing and one thing only Trump is miles behind in the sample polls taken by his own people and behind to every single Democrat candidate the straw polls show he can beat none of them.
    The Trump camp even lost support in areas with steeped military culture.
    This warmongering is about the USA 2020 election Trump can’t get reelected without a war!

    • Jake321

      That may be so but that Islamist murderer got what he deserved.

  • That’s a declaration of war,you dint just go out in the opened conducting assasination on a next nation general in broad day light. Such action only mean you are seeking a war.The islamic law is that those who killed a leader must be bought to justice or killed,its obvious the religious islamic nation of Iran must avenge this leaders ,with that being said they will not seek to bring a war on they people and if they did I believe the majority of the Iranian people would’ve welcome it since they have been treated unfairly and being bully by the United states of America government. This decision of the United states of America military was a wrong,it was desperate act to show strength but it only weakens of an individual who’s in his last breath or card in a deck,it was I’ll advise. Well I will embrace myself for what to come,this an attack knave religious leader and I dont believe this will go away quietly,I’ll rather the storm and deal with it.

    • Jake321

      You might consider getting some Iodine pills if your Islamist leaders go to war or push for a nuke.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        It would be better to test a nuke on you filthy Jew rats :)

    • Zionism = EVIL

      How so arsehole? this is just one old dude that was killed by Americunt terrorists and now stay tuned for decades of fireworks.

      • Jake321

        LOL…the second most powerful man in Islamist Iran is just one old dude. If there are serious fireworks it won’t be for decades since it will be a war to eliminate Iran as a functioning country with no need for massive invasion troops to occupy it. And nukes will not be off the table.

      • bob

        If thats so why are you people SCREAMING like little girls?

  • hvaiallverden

    So, morons, are you seeing it, the Jews and their bitch Trump will do whatever they can, to provoce Iran, and Soleimani was even traveling as an civil, nothing but alone, to Iraq, and I guess this man have done this for some time and everybody knew it, and then the zioNazis couldnt resist, so they attacked Him.
    And I am not surpriced, I bet even He, knew it and /or aniticpated this to come, but did His duty as an man of honor to fight the western backed scums of this earth, and I leave Iraqis with nothing but pure contempt, an totally rotten corrupted people with no credibility what so ever , dont expect anything coming from an people whom throws everything out the window for an fist full of pedoDollars.
    Dobble morale is better than no moral, right Iraqis.

    And the MSM is extatic, of course, this man is the arcitect behind the downfall of ISIS, Trump and the scums in ISISraels/ZATO merc army, and a general that stod in the front line, not hiding behind concret walls and desks and yapps about been soldiers, this man had something few of them ever will have or had, balls.
    The UssA is insane, Trump is an lying sack of shit, and the Jews in the Gov whom runs this show, thru their Bitch Trump is extatic, and in Norway our MSM is jumping up and down in pure joy, and in the comentary fields, its like reading Jewish MSM the day after the Brevik attacked and killed Norwegian youths, pure joy, since Norwegians suported the muslim terrorists Palestina, and killing Muslims is what Norwegians is happy about, since not all terrorists are muslims, but all muslims are terrorists.
    Right.
    huh
    I dont bother to go deeper, since I knew something was coming, if you didnt see this you are brain dead.

    The thing is, EU is not going to change anything, since they are lead by the grip the imperial banana republic and the terror state ISISrael/jews have on their balls, Russia is just huffing and puffing and Putin sat dead silent when the same people wacked Russians (incl top officers and did nothing and I know He knew extactly where it came from ) in Syria, to expect anything is delutional, period.
    Intresting how the Non-TDS people tries to make Trump inocent, when He have done nothing other than escalating the problem, and belive me, nobody in the insane UssA will do anything, the rethoric is just that, thin air, and means nothing, since its the Jews that runs the Gov and Trump.
    Trump just did what He have promissed the benefactores like Adelson etc, go and make an war against Iran, and the ZioNazi is telling this scumbag what to do.

    And I warned you, never ever think that the UssA will change their course (5 nations, 7 years), it will not, and more will come, and nobody in the banana republic cares, dont even think they do, they never cares, never did, and never will do, and Trump of course will winn, since He is fighting Muslims terrorists, the man whom fought the “rebels”, and blamed everything on Iran, you cant gett to be more f…. up than this but in the UssA everything goes, and the same in the west/EU, the propaganda have been hammered for decades and now when they cencure anyone/anything that goes against their consensusses, they have an field day to day, and we cant do jack shit.

    The world lost an Man, few are they, fought the devils spawn, the westerns happy head choppers, yeah, and the west is extatic, and Iran lost an one man whom will be regarded as one of the few men standing tall, and may the lord have mercy upon this mans soul and walk with God.
    Rest in peace.

        Imposing a religious dictatorship.
        You are just as bad as the shia you claim to hate so much.

          Sour grapes. And if your Islamist butt buddies cross the line, it will finally end their nuke program.

          Hey calmo brother, its not me who’s gone ballistic big girls blouse this fair morning!

          Its not me who lives in a shit hole polluted third world basket case country like Syria, iran,Russia

      Because those who were killing Americans were hiding inside it, maybe?

      • John

        Well, we just took out a leading general of Iran, that is an act of war. What if they start taking out our leadership? that would be fair play right?

        • Jake321

          They can try and they can be no more.

        • bob

          And how exactly are they gonna do that?

          Do i take it that American generals are gonna parade themselves around in down town Tehran?

          Don’t start celebrating until the dance is over …….. and the music just started buddy.

          • Jake321

            But such a good start with so much promise. However it goes, there will be lots more Islamist goons gone.

          • John

            Lots will be gone Jake, don’t be too happy yet. ;)

          • Jake321

            It will most all be Islamists and friends and no more Iranian nuke program.

      • John

        That is quite possible Ronald. That chimp in the oval office has really done it this time, in my opinion. He crossed a line, that cannot be taken back. I have an idea as to what the Iranians are to do and the US will definitely not like it. There will be more escalation. Take care man.

        • Jake321

          If they do what you would like, they better get lots of Iodine pills in Iran.

          • John

            What do you mean?

          • Jake321

            If the Iranians do a major attack on US facilities or Israel, the massive counter attack will take out their nuclear facilities and may even involve tactical nuke bunker busters.

          • John

            Think about it, don’t think Hollywood script. What are the Iranian options available to the Iranians to make the US scream into insanity? I know you can see it. Got to go to work. Have a good day.

          • Jake321

            They can try to make it a ground war/insurgency. But that can’t be played against Israel. And they must take revenge on Israel since it will greatly expand its attacks on
            Iran in Syria and Iraq which they have been doing for a long time with impunity. And which they have threatened for years.

          • Concrete Mike

            Cowardly kiki is.implying iran is getting nuked.

          • John

            Ah yes, another hollywood script reader. Laters Mike, Off to work.

          • Concrete Mike

            Yeah indeed, i gotta.go to work too. Sarcastic Hourrayyyy!

          • Jake321

            I’m not implying a thing. They get radioactive whether or not they are nuked since all their nuke facilities will be taken out. That does yield radioactivity. But only if Islamist Iran does a major response against the US ir Israel. So they likely will not make a major retaliation.

          • Concrete Mike

            Lol right, 3% uranium will surely.destroy all of Iran.

            This is what an arts degree.gets you people!!!

            Write a decent sentence but you have no.clue what your writing about.

          • Jake321

            Hey dodo, who said it would destroy all of Iran. However, if the Murdering Mullahs go for an all out war it WILL destroy all of Iran and likely make lots of it radioactive.

    • bob

      He’ll win, and big time, don’t you worry your fluffy little head about it

      • Jake321

        Well, that’s the one down side I see to this.

      • John

        He just threw it all away bro.

        • Jake321

          Depends on the timing and how long it lasts and how well it goes. No way to call it at this time. But Trump sure is a big risk taker and likes all in poker.

          • John

            Yes, I see but, there are no rules no to the games. Trump will be flying blind and he is stupid. This will escalate beyond imagination now, that will happen. So yes, Trump got himself into a poker game, all in, playing with new cards he has never seen before. That will be a tough one. My take Jake.

          • Jake321

            I don’t disagree. But for now he holds the winning hand…who knows what will be when the next cards are drawn?

  • Rhodium 10

    Why Solemaini went to Bagdad airport where US troops are deployed?…

    • Jake321

      He was an arrogant SOB who thought no one would dare do a thing against him. Arrogance does come before a fall.

      • bob

        Dead,dumb, SOB now though!

      • Rhodium 10

        But the question is that tomorow Iraqi parlament vote to expel US troops…

    • Jake321

      Yes they did choose death…for your Islamist murderer. YEH!!! May he and a lot more Rest In Peace.

      • xTheWarrior22

        He is a hero. He lead the battle against the US Israeli-backed ISIS terrorists and won, so the US needed to create more chaos to stay in Iraq. Did you watch your MSM brainwashing propaganda this morning? Your muricunt and zionist murderes will face the consequences. I hope every american, israeli politican and their supporters like you will be beheaded, lynched, tortured and burned alive, that’s a taste of the Zionist satani medicines, I hope you will enjoy it.

        • bob

          No he isn’t a hero!

          He kept a stupid dictator,Assad in power

          Millions of Syrians are voting with their feet, ie, they ain’t going back to Syria

          So this clown achieved little, apart from cause more problems for Syria, oh and get himself killed, should have stayed at home and looked after oranges

  • Bob

    Targeted assassination in middle east has long been Israel’s game – the US military were just the deployed tool here. Likewise, Israeli targeted assignations in middle east have long been merely tactical reactions that invariably just create new issues, with new leaders filling the voids. Israeli regional policy is always aggressively tactical and reactive – and forever failing to seek or create opportunities for strategic engagement in long term regional conflict resolution.

    • S Melanson

      I agree with you. It is long term mutual security approach that is needed. As C3PO said in Star Wars, A New Hope:

      “New Strategy”

      • Karen Bartlett

        Yes, but all the parties must be interested in maintaining diplomacy and peace for that to work. Russia tries, Syria tries, Iran was trying. But the US and Israel won’t cooperate. They want war. Perhaps because it is profitable for their elite.

        • S Melanson

          Yes, which is why I referenced the Star Wars scene where C3PO tells R2D2 to change strategy – if not, the opponent may destroy them both. Hence Israel needs to change strategy as well or risk a war they may very well lose.

  • S Melanson

    Regardless of whose side one is rooting for, Iran cannot turn the other cheek on this incident – the article is correct that Iran cannot let this slide.

    Iran has held back thus far but now, let us see what they do, they must have contingency in place to put in play. Certainly life for US troops in Iraq is going to get far less pleasant.

    Jake321 has had much to say in a cavalier way, including US using tac nukes on Iran. Ok, US nukes a non-nuclear armed nation, a nation criticized for developing nuclear power generating capability as an alleged cover for a clandestine nuclear weapons program.

    Well message loud and clear. No nukes means enslavement, development of nukes means bombed into the stone age. And if nukes successfully developed, means emancipation. Goodbye nuclear non-proliferation, hello Global nuclear arms race. And Iran will retaliate might I add, all out in fact. We will find out just how high oil price can really go before implosion of global economy.

    • bob

      Won’t happen my friend, Chinese will go mad with Iran if it starts playing silly buggers, they’ve already pulled out of gas deals with Iran because of that little stunt with the Saudi oil thing

      Iran is unfortunately a weak and desperate country it ain’t going anywhere

      It’ll soon run out of friends

      • S Melanson

        If Iran gets nuked, I would assume all out retaliation as a probable outcome. Iran is not a near peer adversary of the US but at the same time Iran is not weak, being capable of doing a lot of damage in the region.

        Yes, desperate may be a way to describe a nation being nuked and there is that old saying on how the desperate may resort to desperate measures…

        • bob

          Stop being hysterical

          No one is going to nuke Iran, they don’t need to as its own population will explode in a far more destructive way very soon

          • S Melanson

            I was originally referring to Jake321 musing about the US using tac nukes on Iran and pointing out the likely consequences of such an action. Personally, I doubt the US would do something so risky.

          • bob

            It doesn’t need to

            Sanctions max pressure is working fine

            Soon the rest of the EU and certainly the signatories of the Iran nuke deal will back away from Iran, then they’ll be back to an even worse position than before

            Its EndEx for Iran, their strange little experiment in religious dictatorship is coming to and end

            The shame is they can’t and won’t accept this, far smarter to go quietly like the former Soviets and satellite states did than go down in fire

          • Karen Bartlett

            Eva K. Bartlett is highly professional and always documents with video and interviews anything she writes about. It’s simply that you consider truth to be garbage, and vice versa.

          • bob

            No she isn’t

            If the expression ‘useful idiot’ hadn’t been invented you’d have to, to describe your heartthrob super ‘journalist ‘

            She reports exactly what regimes like North Korea or Syria want her to report

            She’s an attention seeking traitor, a spoilt idiot, she sucks up to her fan boy dictatorship friends because it gives her a sense of power and superiority, a truth teller, which she isn’t,propaganda BS merchant absolutely!

            She wouldn’t last five minutes in the regimes she supports if she ever decided to criticise them, she’d never be invited back, but if she was a citizen of these regimes and critical of them ,she’d probably be arrested, tortured, killed or if lucky banished

      • Karen Bartlett

        Thank you for the thought. We are not related. She is Canadian and I am American.(Bartlett is a fairly common British name.) But I read her “In Gaza” post and she is on YouTube. I think she’s an excellent independent journalist. Vanessa Beeley is also great, the daughter of a former British diplomat, she knows her stuff and did some of the original exposes of the White Helmets in Syria.

  • Rodger

    Iran will play this smart. Iran will let Iraq deal with the US and Iran just got a nice photogenic martyr for its foreign influence. This will echo for decades but won’t result in an open US-Iran war. Hopefully.
    Soleimani is probably worth more to Iran dead than he was alive.

  • Ilya

    How absolutely shit, he seemed like a truly good guy.

    I do hope Iran acts smart and doesn’t trigger a world war – US Empire is a dead man walking anyways, running towards the beast is only asking for extra pain and risk for ones own people.

    I can’t imagine Israel not nuking Tehran in the case of a war anyways, they are just that violent.

    Hopefully Iraq, Iran, Russia, and China play this smart, and scupper the MIC’s plans, rather than play along.

    a tragic mistake even for the crazy US diplomacy. took out ISIS No1 enemy. even if the Us accusations about the attack by Iran on its embassy in Baghdad are true….even so, its a huge mistake. retaliate on the attackers on the ground and defend your embassy. clearly its only a ‘convenient reason’ for the assassination. US is losing ground on Iraq , thus its oil, and is scared to death about that.

    So where are Trumpets? Why are they not here telling us how much Trump is fighting the deep state? I hope this opened some eyes as to who that fat orange piece of SHIT really is. This act and US statements sound very familiar. Who else says they can attack anyone anywhere? Who else then says they will attack anyone that tries to defend themselves? Come back now and tell us how Trump is reining in the neocon Zionists, of which he is one. Iran needs to take revenge on those in the command chain. I don’t care if they start at the bottom or top…This more Bibi style politics, yes politics…both are up for re-election and both will do anything that promotes that end. I hope the Iranians start with Esper and Pompass, two vile gutless scum. I am so disgusted that a great man has been murdered by cowards hiding under their beds, it is difficult to express how mad I am. All you fucking Trump sucking fools out there, this is the man you think will save the US? I hope you know now how fucking wrong you are.

    The assassination of Suleimani could be that Sarajevo-type act to trigger world war three. Through the growing instability and chaos the pattern of history follows its logical path to nuclear holocaust.

      Suleimani is nobody outside of iran. iran is nithing in the world politics. Ferdinad was somebody, Austria was a mighty country. The whole western world planned and prepared a big war. Today no country want start a big war.

    This is a disgusting and unprovoked attack on Iran, these warmongering Israeli-shills in the US government are going to start a war with this. Iran will need to retaliate hard if it is to save face, and I’m sure they’re about to. More American blood will probably be spilt in Iraq before this is over.

    Trump is acting like a damn buffoon again.

  • It appears Trump has given Israel control of some portion of the American military in addition to major parts of Palestine.

    This is classic Israeli extrajudicial killing, an Israeli practice for over seventy years (a recent book claimed Israel is responsible for more than 2,700 of them), but now America takes responsibility on its behalf.

    Just as with the Neocon Wars, all for Israel’s benefit and all done so that Israel does not have to take direct blame for the immense violence it generates in the region.

    Hard to know what Trump’s thinking here is. War before an election does not seem a good idea, especially if you are a candidate who has failed so far to achieve anything of substance around past promises to reduce America’s involvement in Mideast wars.

    Remember that a crucial slice of the votes that put the man into office were not from his prime political base, the “pick-up truck and Jesus” set, but from those concerned with peace and better relations with Russia.

    But prodding Iran to attack could allow Trump to play commander-in-chief defending the country. And Americans just instinctively support even the worst possible presidents at war. You might call it the George Bush Effect. The frightened puppy grabbing the nearest pantleg after a loud noise.

    Of course, now when it comes to campaign contributions from American Oligarchs whose chief political concern is what Israel wants, Trump’s coffers will be overflowing.

    I suspect Iran will take its time and carefully plan a response, and that response may not be clear and unambiguous, and it might be multi-faceted and done over time.

    The men running Iran are careful men, none of them impetuous. Chess players. The United States has more than forty years of bellowing, open hostility towards the country, and we have not seen Iran’s leaders act foolishly in all that time despite many provocations.

    I do not believe Iran will be driven to war – that would be playing the Israeli-American game with Israeli-American rules.

    Clandestine and hybrid efforts, that is what Iran is best at. They have serious capabilities these days, and the United States, with all its bases abroad, has great vulnerabilities.

    Of course, there’s also the option of Iran’s just leaving the nuclear agreement (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA) that Trump idiotically tore-up and proceeding quietly with weapons development. Iran, despite Israel’s dishonest claims, never has pursued weapons development, only efficient use of nuclear power and legitimate scientific research. Perhaps it is time to reconsider that policy

    Iran has substantial deposits of uranium, and the enriched-uranium bomb is simpler to build than the plutonium bomb. Maybe there is some possibility for covert assistance from North Korea, another country treated like crap by Trump’s Washington Braintrust?

      Thorough analysis, thanks.

    Soleimani was a marked man. I’m sure he knew that. And I’m pretty sure he had contingency plans in case his time was up. I don’t for any moment, think that Iran is just helpless without Soleimani. Just a question of what will happen and when will it happen.

    no war will come

    Look close at the photos. This is Not Qasem Suleimani, Assassinated in US Airstrike. The color of the hair is different, the fingers are different size, the ring is different. If these photos are not of Qasem Suleimani, Why are they saying he’s dead? and where is he? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3c85514a5218954197cea22dbe66032602778cd547c52a8984617d5ee24aae5f.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/285e1cb30b9bf60307a889225ae08bd4dc82d1291d12b39a01fbee65b8c7b19d.png

    Nice to see the protests springing up in the US and other nations, demanding the US does not go to war or other nations do not support the war.

    Pompeo, complaining the UK is not supporting the US, when the US, without asking Congress, the UN, or waiting for an invite to invade, took a General from another nation out, who was invited by a sovereign nation to attend a state funeral, for 39 Iraq military personnel, that the guest nation had taken out.

    The US declared war on Iran and Iraq, but, never even discussed it in Congress or with anybody else, other than the Trump golfing buddies. What happens to him, when he goes to his golfing resort in Florida? Remember, when he hosted President Xi Jinping, and sent 60 cruise missiles to Syria, for the evening entertainment?
