Gen. Suleimani assassination [ANALYSIS]

While some US Republican lawmakers celebrated Soleimani’s death, Democrats were quick to cast doubt on the legality of Mr. Trump’s actions. “[D]id America just assassinate, without any congressional authorisation, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?” asked Democrat senator Chris Murphy on Twitter.

I saw videos of some protesters running in street and celebrating, what a disgusting heart they have.

The Guardian carried that video. Set-up for MSM consumption for propaganda purposes. A bit like the machine printed, perfect English signs that protestors sometimes carry in Middle East protests, it's so that western audiences can read them more easily.

Regarding Iraqi politics, I find the official Iranian position to be contradictory. On the one hand, the Supreme Leader has stressed the bonds between the Iraqi and Iranian peoples, and has stated that Iraq and Iran have made great strides together against Daesh and its foreign (Western) backers. (Ironically, the West has basically concurred with and gone beyond the Supreme Leader in this regard, and has falsely insinuated that Iraq has become an Iranian puppet since NATO invaded in 2003.) On the other hand, if the bond between Iraq and Iran were truly so strong, then the West would not have been able to occupy Iraq with impunity up till the present, much less conduct numerous airstrikes and drone raids against anti-Western forces in the country. The Iraqi people, like their government, say one thing and do another, depending on the intended audience.

The Iraqi prime minister is quick to condemn Western attacks but quietly collaborates with the West behind the scenes, while he and other corrupt elements leak classified information about the PMUs and IRGC to NATO. It is absurd that the American government is able to talk out of both sides of its mouth: Iran is supposedly taking over the entire MENA by force and stealth, yet it is too weak to stop Western aggression against neighbouring Iraq, a country that waged Western-sponsored aggression against Iran from 1980–89. (Another thing that I do not understand is the reluctance of the Supreme Leader and IRGC to take over the Iranian parliament, given that Rouhani, Zarif, and other reformists have been consistently acting against Iranian interests since day one, by forcing Iran to cooperate with the biased JCPOA, adopt neoliberal economic measures, etc.)

Finally, I disagree with the notion that Daesh is defeated. It and its ilk are not defeated as long as the West continues to support Wahhabism financially and otherwise.

What liberation day? Only evil hearted could even celebrate of his death. And that is nothing but Insulting us thinking that we are celebrating his death. I saw videos of some protesters running in street and celebrating, what a disgusting heart they have.

It was indeed a bit too sarcastic from me.

The "celebration video" posted elsewhere.

Now look at the video here:  https://www.euronews.com/2020/01/03/a-declaration-of-war-and-an-escalation-the-world-reacts-to-soleimani-killing 

In the first few seconds, this looks like it is film in a warehouse. Read the boxes at the top of the picture -stop frame- some are in english and some in Western lettering. So-called canopies are draped over boxes or poles.

At what is this black and yellow barrier?

Nice concrete floor.

In the last two seconds, l cannot characterize the strung lights, nor identify the stuff are the end except some 'boxes in the 'street'".

@realizm & @Sirius_Bright  

l admit there are several things l like about Trump, but this droning Soleimani is really quite stupid.

Another thing: l am aware about Soleimani's "convictions", "links", Red Warrants from lNTERPOL, and so on; but never do l read or hear anything specific like we would in the US media reporting on a simple criminal act. Compare all the media info on that mental case that stabbed those Orthodox believers in NYC -medical history,charge sheet, interview with his lawyer, family statements and so on. Then that worthlss, Washington white-trash cannot understand why people don't believe what they say.

The US embassy in Baghdad advised its citizens to leave Iraq immediately as fears grew of retaliation, including kidnappings and attacks against American and other foreign interests. The US has about 5,000 troops in Iraq and western oil companies — including ExxonMobil, BP and Total — have operations in the country.

I'd imagine a just and non-violent Iraqi response would be to ensure that they don't come back.

Russian Defence Ministry:

Quote

 

"Under Qasem Soleimani's direct leadership, armed resistance against international terrorist groups Isis and al-Qaeda was organised in Syria and Iraq long before the US-led so-called 'international coalition' was set up.

"His personal contribution to the fight against Isis in Syria is undeniable."

The statement later added: "Gen Qasem Soleimani was a skilled military commander, who wielded deserved authority and significant influence in the Middle East region."

Tensions are growing within the Middle East as the most decorated leader of the Iranian Military, General Qasim Soleimani has been martyred by a U.S drone strike ordered by the Trump administration in retaliation to the attack on the U.S embassy within Iraq. 

The inability to negotiate by the U.S president and the irony of the executive order that he orchestrated against Iran will serve as a motivator to the already resurging Iranian backed forces within Iraq, and the thousands of U.S troops that have and are being deployed to Iraq have most evidently been foreshadowing an incumbent proxy war that will be fought between Tehran and Washington, using Iraq as their battleground.

Unfortunately more innocent blood will be shed in Iraq amidst this ongoing economical, legislative, international, and soon militaristic conflict between the east and the west. The supreme leader of Iran has issued a warning to the Trump administration, stating that the blood of General Qasim Soleimani will be avenged and the criminals will pay for their transgression. 

One may postulate at what cost is the Ayatullah willing to wager and to what extent in order to avenge the martyrdom of the leader of Al-Quds force. Tension within tension, propaganda amidst propaganda, and sectarianism within sectarianism, the situation in the Middle East in general and within Iraq in particular has been left in complete disarray, and the people of Iraq have been greatly discombobulated, having been divided into groups within groups. those who seek vengeance, those who are joyful over this causality, and those who wish to merely be free of such foreign conflicts that have afflicted Iraq domestically.

Salam aleykoum, I am a Moroccan Muslim pro Shia pro Sunni, but against wahabi/salafi. At home I have a large glass picture of Karbala in the living room and a large glass picture of Medina in the sleeping room. 

I have the feeling that General Soulaiman Allah irahmou was trapped in a set up, that he was lured to that place where he would be killed. 

There are infiltrants in the Sunni community (mostly wahabi and salafi are infiltrants) as there are also infiltrants in the Shia world. It is very possible that some high profiles in the Iranian oil industry and some corrupt politicians were behind this set up. 

General Soulaiman is way too intelligent to let people know where he will be at which hour of the day. 

This feels like an inside job of someone he trusted and who had sold his soul to the Zionists (luciferians).

Whatever happens next, USA has managed to garner tons more hatred for itself worldwide and further ionized the world population with its bigotry and malice and once again proven to be the excremental orifice that produced ISIS and most other big evil things going on in this world. Much like a sick, murdering psychopath who is tired of being misidentified and wants to be recognized for what it really is. I think this event is a milestone towards its end.

@starlight and all S.C

l did an l-search and the following sumarizes the current status of things:

The US is again pushing the 'nuclear diatribe' for  the "it-is-all-about-lran-getting-a-nuclear-device-that-the-fatwas-prohibit" to provide "nuclear cover" for a serious policy disaster.  https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/voa-news-Iran/soleimanis-killing-earthquake-reverberations-around-globe

Looking for some different perspecives, l found a couple.

Russia will be the "beneficiary" of US-lran confrontations?  https://www,rferl.org/a/analysis-a-beneficiary-of-the-u-s-Iran-crisis-could-well-be-russia/30360014.html   Europe is worried about it oil supply --(but then the US has a lot of unused capacity to supply that -ed.)

German FM Heiko Maas, who has made some serious anti-lranian remarks since last March, said lRl has made some "dangerous provocations".

The UK's Shadow Gov't is unhappy.

For a completely different perspective, exempli gratia, "This crime, . . . is staggering in its degree of recklessness and lawlessness." is from the Marxist https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/01/04/pers-j04.html 

Sloemimani became know to the US when he was the legman when lRl provided assistance to the US in 2001 in Afghanistan. [Remember? Then Bush said lran was part of the "Axis of Evil" to which Rafsanjani in khotbah at jummah said of Bush "he's a lunatic"] 

Quotes Die Zeit as comparing this murder to the church sponsored assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

 @Haji 2003  l read the Guardian article. After all the armtwisting thay endured after the Snowden revelations, we can read in the article's tone that The Guardian is firmly in the war path camp.

It always has been.

Given the recent assassination of Soleimani, however, it is essential to point out that the U.S. airstrike targeting Soleimani came just a few months after Israel tried but failed to assassinate the General. Indeed, the most recent of these failed attempts was slated to occur early last October and, per The Times of Israel, This attempt by Israel to kill Soleimani came after claims that, in 2018, the Trump administration had given Israel a “green light” to assassinate the general. The report claimed that “there is an American-Israeli agreement” that Soleimani is a “threat to the two countries’ interests in the region” and was published by the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida, which is widely considered to be “an Israeli platform for conveying messages to other countries in the Middle East,” according to Israeli media.

The above article is interesting because it cites credible sources and yet contains publicly available information that no one else has sought to mention.

Salam majority of them are Wahabists & Salafis & Baathis &a minority of Shias that are propagating it in social media but majority of Sunnis because of their activity are  silent & neutral about it  anyway barking dogs always make loud noise but at the end they can't hide the truth.

Palestinians in Gaza pay tribute to assassinated Iranian commander (+Video)

https://en.abna24.com/news//palestinians-in-gaza-pay-tribute-to-assassinated-iranian-commander-video_999266.html

January 4, 2020 - 7:15 PM News Code : 999266 Source : Press TV, ReutersLink:   

Palestinians in Gaza have paid tribute to slain Iranian Commander Qassem Soleimani at a memorial service.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad- which have long enjoyed support from Tehran - condemned Soleimani's killing and sent their "dearest condolences" to Iran.

The National and Islamic groups called for supporters to gather in Gaza to pay their respects, as thousands of mourners gathered in Baghdad for the funeral procession for Soleimani, Iraqi military commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and others killed in a US airstrike on Friday, January 3, in Iraq.

Hamas said Soleimani "had a senior role in supporting Palestinian resistance in all fields." It extended "its dearest condolences to the Iranian leadership and the people of Iran at the martyrdom of Major General Qassem Soleimani."
