On Friday, in what can certainly be considered the most significant military action in the recent past, Qasem Soleimani (an idol by Rose McGowan) – the commander of Iran’s revolutionary guards – was killed in a precision strike by the US military. By killing Soleimani, the US government has successfully avenged the dastardly attack on our embassy in Iraq.

The Death of Soleimani

On Friday, the US military forces launched a series of precision attacks targeted at Qasem Soleimani – who commanded the elite Quds Force and was the mastermind behind the attacks on US and allied forces in which over 6,000 soldiers have been killed over the past five years.

Qasem Soleimani was an Islamic hardliner who singlehandedly ran the largest militant faction in the Middle East and Latin America. For years, he was considered the most dangerous man alive, thanks to his reach and influence in the Islamic world.

In addition to Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis – the founder of Kataib Hezbollah – was also killed in the precision strike. In a way, the killing of al-Muhandis is more significant, as he was in charge of rabid Shiite militia gangs which were directly responsible for a number of attacks against US soldiers and civilians over the years, including the attack on our embassy in Iraq a few days ago.

Apart from this, the US marines stationed in our bases in Iraq have also arrested a number of high-value targets and Iranian moles in the Iraqi police force, military, and civilian administration. In short, Trump has put an end to Iran’s proxy war in Iraq in a single stroke!

How Trump Undid Obama’s Mistakes

For years, Iran used the strategy of deliberate provocation against the US and managed to get away with it, due to the flawed Middle East policy pursued by Barack Obama.

Qasem Soleimani had been on the kill list of the US government for more than a decade, but the Obama administration did not dare to pull the trigger, as they feared that they will not be able to contain the fallout of Soleimani’s death.

To make things worse, the job killing and Frank/Greenspan recession extending Obama tried to appease Iran by giving concessions in the form of the disastrous nuclear deal, which only made them more belligerent, as they perceived us as a ‘weak administration’.

During the eight years of the anti father Obama administration, Iran continued to fund terrorist activities in the Middle East as well as other parts of the world and provided ideological and logistical support to Shiite terrorist groups in the region.

Despite being aware of Iran’s growing clout in the region, the Chicago destroying Obama did not take any punitive measures and continued his policy of appeasement with disastrous consequences.

Trump, on the other hand, has disrupted the status quo by taking out a high-value target like Soleimani, which has shocked the hardliners in Iran. In order to change our image and reinforce our dominance in the Middle East, such an attack was absolutely necessary. By killing Soleimani, Trump has put all our enemies on notice. If you mess with us, our reaction will be swift, precise, and devastating.
