The United States has always justified its unacceptable wars and interventions with big lies and cunning deceptions.
The Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was an awe-inspiring figure who was widely viewed as a hero in Iran, the Middle East, and around the world.
Gen. Soleimani was a key figure and leader in pursuing regional peace and stability — free from the evil schemes of US-supported terrorists and western allies and the blight of their imperial invasions.
Gen. Soleimani’s unlawful assassination last year by the direct order of the soon to be ex-president Trump was an act of war on Iraq where he was killed and on Iran where he served for decades with valor, commitment, and honor.
“He killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more,” he falsely claimed, “He was, directly and indirectly, responsible for the death of millions of people.”
This was a knock the stuffing out of mouth fake claim even by Trump’s feign standards.
As US commander-in-chief, the unconfirmed account applies to him. His administration and his hoard of Washington lackeys share blame for endless “preventive” wars on non-threatening nations — a practice which is in stark defiance to UN Charter and international norms.
Iranians haven’t waged war against another country in centuries and the Islamic Republic has always sought regional peace and cooperation with other nations from the day of its creation.
The US president baselessly accused Gen. Soleimani of plotting imminent and sinister attacks on US diplomats and military personnel, and that’s why they caught him in the act and decided to terminate him.
No proof was cited or provided to the UN because there was no evidence in the first place. The UN said multiple times that no “imminent…sinister attacks” on US civilian and military personnel were planned by the Quds Force.
Donald Trump and his Christian fundamentalist and neo-Nazi white boy, Mike Pence, falsely accused Soleimani of assisting in the covert travel of 10 of 12 terrorists who carried out the September 11 terrorist attacks.
According to reports, 19, not 12, individuals were involved in the 9/11 false flag attacks. The attack wrongfully blamed on Muslims and Arabs to be used days later by the Bush administration as an excuse to stiffen the US’ footprints all over the Middle East.
Trump’s ordered killing of Soleimani was not a tragic but a strategic blunder for the US.
Millions of Iranians, people from all over the Middle East, and some even in the west mourned his loss and was enraged over the US state-sponsored murder of a government official and an international messenger for peace and freedom.
The assassination elevated Soleimani status to a larger than life figure, a martyr more powerful in death than while alive.
A Lebanese TV director called him a brave leader. The former CIA officer John Maguire called him “the single most powerful operative in the Middle East”
Iran’s supreme leader called Gen. Soleimani a “living martyr” of the revolution, adding he came “close to martyrdom repeatedly, but in performing his duty and fighting for the cause of God, he had no fear of anyone or anything.”
Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif disclosed the General’s Diplomatic capabilities in the region citing for over “20 years (they) closely collaborated to advance the objectives of the Islamic Republic in finding political and peaceful solutions.”
Soleimani was a warrior who fought wars to ensure peace. He protected the Iranian people in the war against the Saddam Hussein regime, he aided Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his people to resist the scourge of US-supported terrorism, and to his last days, he helped the people of Iraq and Syria in their fight against ISIS.
Mourned and remembered by millions in Iran and around the globe, he will be truly missed.
