Exposed by MSM: Soleimani in Iraq at Trump’s Request (not Saudi) to End Embassy Violence (Judas)


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

The story below is from the Daily Beast, a Newsweek online publication often tied to Israel, but, in this case, with a story they got right, and they often do.  Even the Israeli press shines well above most American counterparts.  Simply read it and try not to get sick:

Last week, as Abdul-Mahdi worked to calm an increasingly explosive confrontation, he turned to Soleimani for help. An American contractor had been killed by a militia, Kataeb Hezbollah, that is part of the Iraqi government’s forces but which answered to Soleimani. Then came retaliatory U.S. airstrikes against Kataeb Hezbollah, killing at least 24 people. The militia’s supporters responded by trying to batter their way into the fortress-like U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad’s Green Zone.

The Iraqis had known that Soleimani could make the violence worse—or he could rein in the many Iraqi militias over which he held de facto command, and thus ease the tensions. 

When the embassy siege ended, Abdul-Mahdi got a phone call from Trump thanking his government, and Trump asked him “to play the mediator’s role” between the U.S. and Iran. But Trump already had ordered the drones and helicopters set in motion to terminate the Iranian general in a fiery blast early last Friday morning near Baghdad airport.

Trump claims he ordered the hit to stop a major attack on Americans. But Abdul-Mahdi told Iraq’s parliament Sunday, “I was supposed to meet Soleimani the day he was killed.” He had come to deliver “a message from Iran responding to the message we delivered from Saudi [Arabia] to Iran.”

The story goes on, but we suggest you read it at the link above, we don’t want to be accused of putting words in someone else’s mouths.

The US has now approached the Kurds, which the US abandoned in Syria, in order to move their bases there and break that portion of Iraq off, which will threaten Turkey.  Turkey claims continual PKK attacks are staged from the KRG in Iraq and has been involved in continual cross border military moves into the KRG, usually with the full blessing of the Erbil government but not the real government in Baghdad.
