A History Lesson on Just Why We Must Take Down Our Enemies In IRAN


The U. S. Strike Against Iranian General Qasem Soleimani

The United States Department of Defense identified General Soleimani as, “Actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”

General Soleimani is by any measure or was one of the most dangerous and evil actors on the world stage. There can be no doubt that over the course of the last several years under the direction of General Soleimani, there have been hundreds and hundreds of American troops who have died in deaths directly attributable to his action and plans and there have been thousands of civilians and uniformed military of America’s allies who have similarly died.

There can be no question whatsoever that General Soleimani and the Quds Force represented a direct threat not only to the United States but also to American allies.

The Pentagon announced late last week that the United States military had killed General Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, and that the military action had been undertaken at the expressed direction of President Donald Trump. An airstrike killed Soleimani, architect of Iran’s regional security apparatus, at Baghdad’s International Airport on Friday Iranian time. That was confirmed by Iranian state television and three Iraqi officials. The attack has been expected since then to draw an Iranian retaliation and retribution against not only the United States, but likely American allies in the area, including Israel and potentially Saudi Arabia.

Up until the year 1979, the United States and Iran, under the rule of the Shah of Iran, had been very close allies, but all that changed in the Islamic revolution that took place in Iran in 1979, led to a massive hostage crisis with the United States and the breakdown of all diplomatic relationships. From that point onward, under the rule of then Ayatollah Khamenei, Iran and the United States have become implacable enemies.
