Prophetic Truth & Consequences
Iran's General Qassem Soleimani Responsible for American Deaths
1-2-20, Breitbart -- The U.S. Dept of Defense claimed Thursday, 1-2-20 evening that Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, Iraq, “he was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.” It's true.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Al-Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani directed Iranian military operations abroad, including terror. Reportedly he directed rocket attacks last week that on Dec 27, 2019 killing American civilian contractor in Iraq - 33-year old Nawres Waleed Hamid. Last year, President Donald Trump designated the IRGC as a terrorist organization — an acknowledgment of reality.
Reported in a 2013 profile of Solemani by the anti-Trump New Yorker: John Maguire, a former C.I.A. officer in Iraq said: “Soleimani is the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today and no one’s ever heard of him.” In 2011, the Obama administration sanctioned Soleimani for his role in plotting a foiled terror attack in a Washington, D.C. restaurant with the aim of assassinating the Saudi ambassador to the U.S.
Suleimani took command of Iran's Quds Force fifteen years ago, and in that time he has sought to reshape the Middle East in Iran’s favor, working as a power broker and as a military force: assassinating rivals, arming allies, and, for most of a decade, directing a network of militant groups that killed hundreds of Americans in Iraq.
The U.S. Dept of the Treasury [under Obama] sanctioned Suleimani for his role in supporting the Assad regime of Syria, and for abetting terrorism. And yet he has remained mostly invisible to the outside world, even as he runs agents and directs operations. More here
Now the deluded leftist media and Democrats are wringing their hands that Soleimani was killed. These people are nuts!
There's Only One Group Mourning Soleimani's Death
1-7-20, Nikki Haley, "Soleimani's death was a long time coming. You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members, you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and Democrat Presidential candidates.” It's disgusting.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] both accused President Trump of circumventing constitutional guidelines to take out Soleimani, which she described as "a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike."
Pelosi took the opportunity to introduce her War Powers Resolution "to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran." Although there was no complaints when Obama reportedly took out Bin Laden without Congressional approval. Two faced hypocrites!
