The Pentagon says it killed Soleimani to protect Americans. WTF??? Americans, particularly US soldiers in the Middle East, are now sitting ducks. Look at all the US military bases around Iran!!!
General Soleimani was attacked and assassinated on January 2 when vehicles carrying him and other Kataib Hezbollah militia high-ranking officers were leaving Baghdad airport. The attack was ordered by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani promised that his country and other nations in the region "will avenge the martyrdom of Soleimani."
Supreme religious leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei also affirmed that the criminals who killed the Iranian general await hard revenge.
After announcing three days of national mourning for the death of Soleimani, Khamenei appointed Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani as the new commander of the Quds Force.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the U.S. attack as an "act of international terrorism," warning that such an "extremely dangerous" action will have its consequences for the U.S.
