Recent American activity included the U.S. airstrike in Baghdad on Jan. 2, 2020 of General Qassem Soleimani. This 62 year-old led a branch of Iran’s Revolution Guards, that reports to Ayatollah Ali Khamemei, the Supreme Leader. He was also accused of controlling militias in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.

Apparently the likes of Sen. Warren and Rudy Giuliani considered General Soleimani a murderer. Our Pentagon believed he was actively developing plans to attack our diplomats in Iraq. [He was] leader of the Quds, an organization, designated by the a terrorist group and viewed, for years, as the most powerful intelligence operation in the Middle-East.

We won’t miss.
