Iran’s Gen. Soleimani killed in airstrike at Baghdad airport
Baghdad (AP) — Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was killed in an airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport Friday, Iraqi television and three Iraqi officials said.

The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, or PMF, the officials said.

Their deaths are a potential turning point in the Middle East and are expected to draw severe retaliation from Iran and the forces it backs in the Middle East against Israel and American interests.

The PMF blamed the United States for an attack at Baghdad International Airport Friday.

"...The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said al-Muhandis had arrived to the airport in a convoy to receive Soleimani whose plane had arrived from either Lebanon or Syria. The airstrike occurred as soon as he descended from the plane to be greeted by al-Muhandis and his companions, killing them all...."

So he was nailed by a drone strike on the airport tarmac. Boom.

In Arabic, Jerusalem is called al Quds. This Farsi speaking Iranian "elite" force is just a cryptic way of saying they are the backers of Arab forces to retake Jerusalem, also known in their wet dreams as DEATH TO ISRAEL. This "general" was in Baghdad for no other reason than to coordinate more trouble by the Shiite forces backed by them against Americans and our embassy.

No amount of negotiations and niceties will change their dreams of destroying Israel and America.

News says Trump ordered the strike in order to kill Soleimani.

Is Trump really that stupid, or does he intend to start a war thinking it will lead to his re-election? He really stepped in it this time!
Its a drone strike. He has met terrorist acts with a measured strike. No boots on the ground. Good job.

I think that taking a major terrorist out of the picture will really benefit the USA.
LOL!!!!! I'd be LMAO if it weren't so serious, so dire, so STUPID.

IRAN WILL TAKE REVENGE AND THEY ARE POSITIONED ALL OVER THE WORLD TO DO SO!

If our embassies are bombed and ambassadors killed, if ships are bombed, if Iran strikes back multiple times in multiple places on significant targets, HOW DO YOU THINK TRUMP WILL RESPOND TO IT?

THIS IS EXACTLY THE SORT OF THING THAT STARTED WWI.
