Sorrowful Times for America, Its Relationship with Middle East Nations
— For the first time ever, Iran has raised a flag of revenge and the US will likely become expelled from Iraq!
Updated on 1/5/20: Iranian General Qassem Soleimani visited Baghdad on an official visit to deliver Iran’s response to a de-escalation agreement between Iran and Saudi Arabia, with Iraq mediating. It’s also been reported he’d attend the funeral of members of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) who were killed by the US during five bombing strikes at PMU locations, three in Iraq and two in Syria. The US justified bombing the five PMU sites as a response to a rocket attack near Kirkuk that killed a still unnamed military contractor.
According to Washington Post reporter Mustafa Salim, based out of Baghdad, the Iraqi Parliament has voted to remove the US military from Iraq and prime minister Abdulmadhi, in his speech, described the assassination as a “political assassination” and told the Parliament he was “supposed to meet Soleimani at the morning the day he was killed [12:30 am], he came to deliver me a message from Iran responding to the message we delivered from Saudi to Iran.” So Soleimani, when he was killed, was performing a diplomatic missions. Although not yet widely reported in the media, this fact will not sit well with the rest of the world.
