What Qassim Soleimani's killing means

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 1/3/2020 4:53:08 AM

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts. He was a serious

He had to leave Iran where he was safe and go to see how his boys were doing in Iraq. Big mistake. If he had stayed in Iran he would still be alive. That fact and the Ayatollah Assahola taunting Trump about he could do nothing got him splattered around the Iraqui countryside. Theres a new Sherriff in town. Obama has left the WH.

We'll get the usual bluster from the wrapped-up heads in Tehran but they will think about it long and hard before they make any more aggressive moves. There's something about being targeted from the sky that puts the fear of God into you. God, not allah.

This President has learned from the mistakes of his predecessors in dealing with the Middle East. He is a smart guy with the moxie to match and is not going to sit back and allow our people or facilities to be attacked. Well done, Mr. President. Hit them hard. He is also savvy enough to get out of the political sandquick that is the Middle East. No more nation building. Let them handle their own messes. We cannot force our values on a group of people whose values are an anathema to ours. It is an exercise in futility.

I like the way Trump thinks: use the intelligence, decapitate the leadership and get it over with. #8, from Gulf War 1 we have penetrator weapons that will go through at least 30 ft of concrete and detonate. Made from cannon barrels with strap-on wings, it only took us 45 days to deploy that weapon. Unfortunately, Saddam Hussein wasn't home. There's no telling what capabilities we have now.

Isn’t it amazing (not) that the left is squealing with outrage about this killing after they bowed down at 0bama’s feet as if he had killed bin Laden himself? This guy was just as deadly, just as evil, and his killing is a blessing to the whole world. We provoke Iran by simply breathing, but any retaliation will be met with hell raining down on the mullahs. Now we need to take out their nuclear facilities. I’m sure that we know exactly where they are.

The fact that the Iranian General and his staff were openly entering and traveling around Iraq, at the same time planning to kill and killing Americans, should tell you something about serious weaknesses in the Iraqi Government. On the other side of that coin the intelligence as to the exact place where those Iranians would be at a time certain had to come from an Iraqi faction that is friendly to the USA. That Iranian General who is known to be responsible for the deaths of over 600 members of the US military by supplying Iraqi dissidents with many forms of powerful munitions, some of which could blow up heavy armored vehicles. As a terrorist leader of a terrorist organization with global reach that Iranian General should have been taken out years ago, but instead the prior US Administration appeased him and Iran, thus giving him essentially a wink and a nod and the OK to keep killing Americans. Not anymore!

The barbarians of Iran (I am not saying all Iranians are barbarians, mind you) are going to attack America no matter what we do. Treating Iran with kid gloves does no good in the long term. It is better to deal with Iran head-on whenever strategically possible. Some are worried about escalation? Feh. Was gonna happen anyway, but perhaps more slowly. And remember: Obama sent pallets of cold, hard cash to Iran to appease its terrorist government. Wire transfers to the Iranian regime are illegal, so he sent Euros and actual dollars instead. What a terrorist tool!

From the looks of the wreckage of the vehicle he was riding in, looks that there are no dead bodies lying around. The car seems to have suffered four flat tires and the interior got a little burned and the car audio system probably isn’t working. However the passengers, being at ground zero of the warhead of the Hellfire missile detonation were apparently pretty much vaporized instantly. Clean up of the bodies will be by a fire hose rinsing the street down the gutter to the storm drain for a proper burial. Sadly the car drivers wife is really mad because he didn’t make it home for dinner that night.

There are many kinds of anti-Semitic hate crimes. Muslims attack Jews. Neo-Nazis attack Jews. Far leftists attack Jews. Right now, in the New York region, the problem is overwhelmingly black New Yorkers attacking Jews. Over the eight-day Chanukah holiday last week, the attacks mounted, including nine attacks in the New York City area since December 10. The most recent case was a machete-wielding man who attacked five people at a holiday celebration Saturday night. Other examples just in the last week: Tuesday, a 56-year-old man was attacked by four men who struck him in the back of the head with a closed fist.

Nancy Pelosi fancies herself a foreign policy expert who not only must be consulted by the president’s foreign policy team, but who can set or manipulate American foreign policy. Recall her foray into Middle East policy a decade ago, when she defied the Bush State Department, met with Bashar al-Assad in Syria, and declared him the key to bringing peace to the Middle East. Here is what Shadow Secretary Pelosi said about the killing Gen. Soleimani: American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests. But we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Qasem Soleimani wasn't the only major-league terrorist killed in the drone strike ordered by Donald Trump. Also killed was Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a top Iraqi paramilitary leader whose long, bloody career includes attacks on American and other Western embassies, as well as being a founder of Kata'ib Hezbollah, a group responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq. In 2009, the U.S. sanctioned both al-Muhandis and Kata'ib Hezbollah as terrorist entities. In some ways, killing al-Muhandis was more significant than the death of Soleimani. He's been an active terrorist against the U.S. since the occupation of Iraq

We have 2020 backwards: Not Trump, but his opponent, will be more determinant. In part, this is true because President Trump leaves few undecided: He has already had his impact. Therefore, 2020’s more influential variable will be the Democrat, who will be more divergent from normal challengers than Trump will be from a normal incumbent. Elected incumbents are usually the story in their reelection and usually it is a good one for them. When the economy is good, so is their outcome: 11-3 since 1912, with the losses all coming when there has been negative GDP growth within a year of the election.

The immediate chain of events that led to the unprecedented US airstrike that killed top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani began in late December, when a missile attack on an Iraqi military base in Kirkuk killed an American contractor. The US — which blamed that attack on Kataib Hezbollah, an Iraqi militia closely associated with Iran — responded with airstrikes in Iraq and Syria that killed 25 people. In reaction, pro-Iranian militia members and others stormed the US Embassy compound in Baghdad. The US has closely followed Soleimani’s movements over the last few months, but a US official told The Washington Post that discussion of the strike began after the contractor’s death.

When President Donald Trump gave the order to kill Iran's Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, he not only made an arguably proportionate response to the invasion of the U.S. Embassy this week but he also reversed a policy of the Obama administration. According to a report from 2018, Israel was "on the verge" of assassinating Soleimani in 2015, but Obama's officials foiled the plan. In fact, they reached out to Iran with news of Israel's plans. The Trump administration, on the other hand, gave Israel a green light to assassinate Soleimani, according to a January 1, 2018 report from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida. The paper quoted a source in Jerusalem

The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq.

The successful operation against Qassem Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, is a stunning blow to international terrorism and a reassertion of American might. It will also test President Trump's Iran strategy. It is now Trump, not Ayatollah Khamenei, who has ascended a rung on the ladder of escalation by killing the military architect of Iran's Shiite empire. For years, Iran has set the rules. It was Iran that picked the time and place of confrontation. No more. Reciprocity has been the key to understanding Donald Trump.

Many folks on the left and in the media are accusing McConnell of the dreaded sin of hypocrisy. But his positions are in fact entirely consistent.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

So, just who is this top Iranian general the U.S. just eliminated? For many of us who watch and analyze news out of the Middle East daily, he was the world’s number one bad guy. Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.
