Thousands of furious mourners thronged in the streets of Baghdad today during funeral processions for the slain Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and an Iraqi militia commander who died with him during yesterday’s US strike.
As Iran trots out their professional mourners to cry and weep for terrorist Qassem Soleimani publicly, privately they are getting exactly what they hoped for. Lots of media attention combined with the possibility of pulling America into a prolonged conflict. Iran has nothing else to occupy their time with, if you take away the ‘Death to America!’ and ‘Death To Israel!’, they really don’t have much else going on. Except of course building nuclear weapons. Iran is exactly where they want to be right now.
Here in America, it is highly amusing watching the crazed Liberals in the Democratic Party actually defending Iran, and condemning President Trump for having the courage to remove a known terrorist who was actively plotting against America. If Donald Trump announced a cure for cancer tomorrow, the headline would be “Trump Destroys Pharmaceutical Industry”. Keep crying, Liberals, it will be a good warmup for you when the #MAGA2020Landslide happens in November.
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Iran has vowed revenge and ‘Jihad’ for the bitter loss of his general
FROM DAILY MAIL UK: They chanted ‘Death to America’ and ‘America is the Great Satan’ as they walked beside the coffins of Soleimani, architect of Iran’s global military strategy, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Kataeb Hezbollah chief, in Baghdad.
The pair had been riding in a two-vehicle convoy which was decimated by three missiles from an American MQ-9 Reaper Drone in the early hours of Friday outside Baghdad International Airport. The strike – which also killed four more Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards and five members of Iraq’s pro-Iran paramilitary network – infuriated Tehran, who vowed jihad on America.
Meanwhile Iraq, whose prime minister attended the funerals today, threatened to order the expulsion of all US troops from the country after what it called ‘a brazen violation of Iraq’s sovereignty.’
President Donald Trump has said that he ordered the killing of Soleimani to prevent war, adding that the commander was plotting ‘imminent and sinister’ attacks against Americans.
‘We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war,’ the president said in brief remarks at Mar-a-Lago on Friday.
Mourners in the Iraqi capital today carried posters of Soleimani and flags of Muhandis’s Iran-backed Kataeb Hezbollah militia, which has committed brazen attacks against US bases in recent months, climaxing with a siege of the US embassy on Tuesday.
The procession began at the Imam Kadhim shrine in Baghdad, one of the most revered in Shia Islam before crowds headed south to a point near the Green Zone, the high-security district home to government offices and foreign embassies, including America’s.
Meanwhile thousands of angry demonstrators stood outside the UN offices in Iran’s capital, demanding retribution for the killing of Soleimani. The head of Iran’s elite Quds Force will be laid to rest Tuesday in his hometown of Kerman as part of three days of ceremonies across the country, the Revolutionary Guards said.
Yesterday Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei visited the 62-year-old father-of-five’s family home and offered condolences after vowing ‘jihad’ on America for the drone strike. It comes as Tehran’s UN ambassador, who represents Iran’s only diplomatic mission within the US, told CNN Friday that the airstrike was ‘tantamount to opening a war against Iran.’
‘The US has already started a war against Iran, not just an economic war but something beyond that by assassinating one of our top generals,’ Ravanchi said. ‘There will be harsh revenge… The response for a military action is a military action.’ READ MORE
