What's going on with Iran? - VisualPolitik EN

  • January 7th, 2020. Breaking news: about two dozen ballistic missiles hit United States facilities in Iraq. More specifically, the targets were military bases in Western Iraq where hundreds of American soldiers are deployed.
    This was the escalation of the latest tension between Iran and the United States that had erupted on January 3rd. On that day, the US army launched a deadly strike against a convoy that was leaving Baghdad Airport.
    Travelling in that convoy were two leading figures of Middle Eastern geopolitics. The first was Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force, a special operations group within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard.
    He was one of the most important leaders of the Iranian theocracy. Next to him there was Aby Mahdi al-Muhandis, chief of Kata’ib Hezbollah or Hezbollah Brigades, an Iraqi militia founded in 2003 in order to fight US troops deployed in the country.
    According to the Pentagon, this deadly strike was carried out according to orders given by Donald Trump himself, the President of the United States.
    Now the question is... who was Qasem Soleimani? What does his loss mean to Middle Eastern politics? Why did Trump decide to end his life? Why and how is Iran reacting to this? And the most important question of all... What could happen next?
    Are we about to witness a war between The United States and Iran? Let’s take a look.

    Do not underestimate the Iranian people uprising inside Iran, that's the worst enemy of the Islamic Republic Regime in Iran. More than %90 of the Iranian are not supporting the regime even hate them. Now people of Iran are in a disasters situation not because of the sanctions but mostly because of the corruption in Iran and also because the government money is spending outside of Iran or on the military plans.

    I am an Iranian woman living in the US, and I truly love the American people. Therefore I recommend the viewers instead of watching this guy's BS and lies to get your acts together before the Zionist Globalists make Zombies out of you. This guy is supported by the "1%" to fool the "99%". It is furious to see the enslavement of Americans by the Globalists. They even managed to fool Mr. Trump to assassinate General Soleimani for their own agenda. General Soleimani was the guy, who eradicated ISIS (created by the Americans, and the most dangerous terrorist group ever seen on this planet). Just look at the Corona virus agenda. Wake up America. Do not let these guys manipulate you for final enslavement. American people want peace and tranquility throughout the world, NOT WARS. #parvinzamany

    Trump's procrastinated and misguided response to the COVID-19 will ultimately cost him the election and a Democrat will go back to the nuclear deal provided Iran went back to the previous limits, in order to set the stage for a broader agreement. That's how this is going to end.

    Could a reasonable explanation for Trump's decision to kill Solemani come from a channel that begins programs with a cartoon of a missle flying out of Trump's mouth and exploding? No. It is no surprise that VisualPolitik attributes Trump's decision in part to his motivation to seek reelection. Solemani was a terrorist chief who was personally responsible for thousands of American deaths. That fact alone justified Trump's action. The leftists at VisualPolitik simply don't understand the moral imperative behind Trump's decision. That is because, like other leftists, they personally are not morally sound.

    Let's make that "living martyr" a dead martyr. Martyrdom in the Islamic world is like becoming a rock star. Why would we or Europe allow these people to populate our countries? The majority of Muslim civilians sympathize with 911 or other terror attacks. Over 50 million Muslims in Europe have led experts to say "EUROPE IS LOST" to Islam. For example, in England Muslims could easily launch a group of resident Muslim fighting age men LARGER than the national army. Couple that with the parallel society set up by Muslims, the "no go zones" and the de-facto practice of sharia law, and boom. If push comes to shove in England it would be a national bloodbath.

    A world war with Iran???
    Iran is a tiny nation. Iran is alone in the world.
    China, Russia and rest of the world won’t come to Iran’s aid.
    Iran doesn’t have the ability to invade the USA.
    Any ?war? Will be completely on Iranian soil.
    In an armed conflict. The USA will destroy all of Iran’s air forces and anti aircraft defenses very quickly in only a few days. The war will end when Iran’s military is destroyed from the air. The war will end with the complete and total surrender of the Iranian government.
    We will go in and help rebuild Iran like we did in Japan. Then Iran like Japan will be a good nation that plays well with others.
    Iran is a very wealthy nation. They spend all of their money on the elites who live in luxury. They also send millions of dollars to finance terrorists around the world.
    The average Iranian lives in poverty.

    It is shame that the focus was almost entirely on the two countries, the US and Iran. The tension is spilling over to Iraq and Lebanon. I believe the situation in these countries deserve better share. It could cause a serious humanitarian and international crises.

    The bottom line
    The baby weapons
    were used in iraq
    Next if it escalates
    Subsonic nukes
    They can hit every body in 7 minutes
    Doesn't mater if missiles are not full
    Nukes so peace is
    The killing of that leader was on connection to libia
    And you know it was
    Assassination mission by navy seals
    But its not advisable to provoke a country with air superiority
    with subsonic nukes
    just need to rethink

    Soleimani was playing a mediator role between Saudis and Iran when was traveling in a convoy in Baghdad. This was following Saudi oil installation crippling damage by Iranian missiles by the Yemeni Houtis that US defense shied couldn’t stop. In panic mode the Saudis had to make overtures to the Iranians to save their skin. The Zionists ordered Trump to do their dirty work taking down Soleimani who was a peace broker. Netanyahu wants these 2 Muslim countries to be at perpetual war to sap them of any desire to turn against Israel. Unfortunately the Zionist occupiers of Israel ( from Europe) choose force until the table turns. The resilient Persians despite all the sanctions are getting mightier with home grown innovations, technology and inventive ideology. They are unstoppable as being smart descendants of the proud Persian civilization. Time is Israel’s biggest enemy. They still have time to choose the peace option. Too bad your article is dishonest. Trump is Teflon Don and doesn’t need distractions. He is getting a 2nd term. His base is a cult and nothing will faze him.

      ....Are you not good at English or something? Killed is a general term to describe anyone dying from anything caused by someone or something else. Anyone who is assasinated has been killed. I get that you mean he wasn't "JUST killed" and that assaination would be a more descriptive term in the scenario but you just said he was not killed, that's literally just not at all true. Simon was being unspecific but you're being factually completely inaccurate. Maybe you should be more careful of your own language when abrasively correcting others?

    "The Second Reason" is just pure parroting and regurgitating Mainstream Media's UNFOUNDED talking points...PROPAGANDA filtered through their OBVIOUS Political Zealotry! No it would NOT be a "Godsend" for Trumps campaign...he has no real reason to come up with some ulterior means of getting elected again...that just pure MSM NONSENSE! "The Third Reason" you are yet again WRONG about it not working, yet again the MSM is full of shit about this point, and you should stop parroting and regurgitating the NONSENSE of the MSM! Iran has NO ABILITY to wage a sustainable war effort they can win...their so-called war with Iraq from 1980 to 1988 is proof of this! Iran is another Paper Tiger the likes of North Korea!
    AND IRAN does NOT "carry out asymmetrical attacks"...THEY CARRY OUT TERRORIST...plain and simple! So stop being "PC" and call what Iran does to defend its RADICAL IDEOLOGY...TERRORIST!
    Most of Iran's population is Persian and they are sick of what Islam has done to their culture and society!

    Trump approved this action because he is trying as hard as he can to divert attention to him concerning impeachment. Trump is a moron but a cagey one and he will do anything he needs to do to remain in power. The ultra conservative wing of the Republican party which has control of the Senate is the only thing keeping this man in his office. The only reason he became President is because of the stupidity of the use of the Electoral College which allowed a person who lost the election by over 2 million votes to become our fearless leader. What a joke it would be if the consequences were not so grave.

    Iran has not been secretive about its ambition to become the major power in its entire region, seizing Mecca and reducing Israel to status of a Persian satrap. Before it can do so, the US must prove incapable or unwilling to defend any country in that region. The USA could come under a Leftist regime and internal conflict, endure a long-delayed loss of its reserve currency with consequent economic collapse, or be neutralized by a nuclear attack and invaded by China. In all events, the US population would never give up its sons and daughters to go die in a war to defend a region that most consider to be backward, barbaric even demonic. Under those circumstances, only a divine Messiah would be able to rescue little Israel.
