Quds Force Iranian Commander killed rocket strike

This is a big deal for the US, if they have done this ,they couldn't have killed anyone closer to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei than Qassem Soleimani ... Khamenei in the past has called him a "living martyr" .............not any more as dead... This Gen Qassem Soleimani has cult hero status within Quds Force IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and among Shia militias alround the region plus killed is the head of one of Iraqis biggest Iran backed militia. Kataeb Hezbollah Popular Mobilization Forces.

There sure will, be a real bad reaction in some major way by Iran to this killing.... No Longer a proxy war, very dangerous...really distabilizing for the region. And what will the weak Iraqi Government do him killed on Iraqi soil.

No confirmation from the US..yet but I hope if it is so, the Trump regime is ready for the backlash ... which could be appear anywhere. I wonder if it was in retaliation by Trump,on Khamenei taunts to Trump on the attack on the US Embassy? Trump is so thin skinned .



BREAKING NEWS

Time for Americans in the area to leave. The Iranians have no issues with false charges and taking people hostage quid pro quo.

Re: Quds Force Iranian Commander killed rocket strike

All Trump has done by violating Iraqi Sovereignty earlier in the week with a strike, and now with this strike to kill this Iranian al Quds leader ( who yes it was deserving ) but in doing so has changed the balance of Iraqi public opinion.

Which had been growing in dislike of the Iranian influence with large protests against #Iranian militia and their political parties in Iraqi .

But Trump with hos ignorance of the region and his thin skinned reaction to taunts by the Iranian leader, has lost the little support the US had in the region . Iraqi Public opinion and protests has now switched to a joint Iraqi/Iranian anti American protests, with this strike on Iraqi soil,killing the Iranian leader.

Iran will retaliate its in their DNA and it wont be good, this with the threat emanating from NK ,the American public and interests have never been more at risk. And could set an already volatile and hostile region even worse, if that was possible.

ps I suppose it could have been worse if the aircraft strikes had come from Incirlik Air Base and had RTE involved....

Re: Quds Force Iranian Commander killed rocket strike

The strike was launched from a helicopter, I assume that would’ve been from a base within Iraq.

U.S. military facilities across the Middle East ramped up security and the U.S. embassy urged American citizens to “depart Iraq immediately” after the Pentagon confirmed President Donald Trump had ordered the strike against Soleimani...

That’s not going to happen
The Americans only now beginning to understand that years of appeasement with iranian regime has been wrong and only now beginning to find the correct policy. This regime only understands the language of force full stop
