General Suleimani

Iran’s Raeisi: Revenge for the assassination of General Soleimani ‘definitive’

It’s the 3rd anniversary of Gen Suleimani’s assassination.

On Jan. 3, 2020, the U.S. military assassinated Soleimani in a drone strike near the Baghdad International Airport. The assassination was condemned by Iran as “state terrorism.”

Iran’s Foreign Affairs Minister Hosein Amir Abdolahian affirmed that his institution and the Judiciary seriously seek to bring to justice “the leaders and perpetrators of the terrorist crime carried out at the Baghdad airport.”

On Jan. 8, 2020, Iran responded to the assassination by launching missiles at the U.S. Ain al-Asad base in the Iraqi province of Anbar.

On Tuesday, Mehr news agency reported that a senior Iranian judicial official said 94 U.S. nationals have been charged with involving in the 2020 assassination of top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani.

Kazem Gharibabadi, deputy chief of the Iranian judiciary and secretary general of the High Council for Human Rights, said the three main accused are former U.S. President Donald Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Commander of U.S. Central Command Kenneth Frank McKenzie, stressing that no one will be immune from prosecution in this case.

Gharibabadi said the accused are not just the 94 Americans, and their accomplices from seven other countries, including certain regional states as well as Germany and Britain.

This is just another example of the serial idiotic thuggery of Trump. No surprise that he appointed Pompeo as SOS… they operate on the same wavelength. Both are compulsive liars too. I would hazard a guess that his idiotic outgoing National Security Advisor John Bolton (who left office some 3… Read more »

Certain cultures take revenge seriously, to an unhealthy degree, savoring it for generations even. It gives them a deep spiritual-like motivation and purpose, a negative force best avoided. The phrase “don’t wake a sleeping lion” comes to mind. They will move heaven and hell to achieve their morbid obsession. I… Read more »

It is starting to remind me of Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient… Read more »
