THE ART OF THE DIRTY DEAL: TRUMP ASKED IRAQ FOR HELP NEGOTIATING, THEN MURDERED ITS CHIEF NEGOTIATOR!
Below is an excerpt from a news item from Daily Mail that originated in an interview of Iraqi MP mahdi with NPR.
First let me state unequivocally: Soleimani was not a terrorist. There was not a stitch of evidence to support that tall tale from the State Deprtment that he planned to kill Americans. He had led battles against ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Iraq. The real terrorist in the Middle East is the US, as I explained here, and that is why they wanted him dead.
Also let me state that any American who believes any war propaganda or excuses about a US foreign intervention is a big part of the problem, as I discussed here, especially if they believe US aggression is supported by God. Trump promised to keep us out of foreign wars, then soon started getting involved and even brazenly admitting he was in Syria to “take the oil.” As soon as he said that, all of his former followers should have stopped supported him because he was then admitting he is just another Clinton/Bush clone. He is no different from any other president of recent decades and he was elected by Americans, not by God Almighty!
QUOTE from Daily Mail:
Soon after Trump made his request to Abdul Mahdi for mediation, US forces launched their drone strike on Friday killing Soleimani, the Iraqi leader was quoted as saying by National Public Radio.
Abdul Mahdi slammed the Americans on Sunday for what he called a ‘political assassination’ in targeting Soleimani.
Abdul Mahdi suggested that the Iranian military leader was in Baghdad as part of Iraqi-mediated negotiations with Iran’s main regional rival, Saudi Arabia.
He said that Soleimani was going to meet him on the same day that he was killed.
‘He came to deliver me a message from Iran, responding to the message we delivered from Saudi Arabia to Iran,’ Abdul Mahdi told The Washington Post.
