Iranian General Soleimani Was on a Peace Mission with Saudi Arabia When He Was Killed by US Military on Orders from the White House

Ron Paul says it is highly unlikely that Iran was planning an attack on the US before this assassination, because the country literally is surrounded by US military bases. Trump followed the urging of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Marco Rubio, and Mike Pence when he made the decision to kill the Iranian general. Vice President Pence claimed that Soleimani was responsible for 9/11, and no one mentioned the absurdity of such a statement. When Trump ordered the assassination of General Soleimani, he said he was protecting the US from “imminent attacks” on US facilities and personnel. However, it is now known that Trump was told by Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi that the Iranian general was on his way to Iraq seeking peaceful relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Since the assassination, Iraq’s parliament has voted to expel all US troops from the country, Iran’s Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has sworn to exact a “severe revenge” on Soleimani’s killers, and Trump has threatened to target Iranian ‘cultural’ sites, which are religious institutions.

Desperate to justify the US drone assassination of Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted that Washington had made an “intelligence-based assessment” that Soleimani was “actively planning in the region” to attack American interests before he was killed.

President Donald Trump justified his fateful decision to kill the Iranian general in even more explicit language, declaring that Soleimani was planning “imminent attacks” on US diplomatic facilities and personnel across the Middle East.

“We took action last night to stop a war,” Trump claimed. “We did not take action to start a war.”

Trump’s dubious rationale for an indisputably criminal assassination has been repeated widely across corporate media networks, and often without any skepticism or debate.

At a January 3 State Department briefing, where reporters finally got the chance to demand evidence for the claim of an “imminent” threat, one US official erupted in anger.

“Jesus, do we have to explain why we do these things?” he barked at the press.

Two days later, when Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi addressed his country’s parliament, Trump’s justification for killing Soleimani was exposed as a cynical lie.

According to Abdul-Mahdi, he had planned to meet Soleimani on the morning the general was killed to discuss a diplomatic rapproachment that Iraq was brokering between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Abdul-Mahdi said that Trump personally thanked him for the efforts, even as he was planning the hit on Soleimani – thus creating the impression that the Iranian general was safe to travel to Baghdad.

I find this article absurd. Soleimani had all of a sudden changed his stripes and was going to be a good guy after killing thousands of men, women and children including some 600 or more Americans. BS.

Is this article real? Is it really from Ron Paul? It says it is authored by “Ron Paul and the GreyZone” Many of the links in the articles are to tweets. And to top it off, at the end it says “Read full article here…” but there is no link, just text characters.
Where is the “full article”?

Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that Soleimani was a pursuer of peace. From what I’ve seen of him, he was a committed adversary of the West and wasn’t above supporting terrorism.

One of the major reasons why the American Experiment has been watched so closely ever since the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791, was the obligation the Fifth Amendment imposed on all Federal government personnel, ever since then. When we couple that Fifth Amendment with similar provisions in Human Rights Treaties, it should be painfully obvious, even to poorly educated people, that a death penalty may NOT be executed unless due process of law has run its full course. It can and should be argued that due process of law is a legal, moral, ethical and constitutional mandate imposed… Read more »

Ed, I have to say that I think anything any Iraqi or Iranian politician/mullah says is a bald-faced lie! Even if that diplomat told our POTUS of the intent of Salami’s visit (who wasn’t supposed to be anywhere but Iran), I don’t believe it was the truth. Regardless, with the HUGE amount of blood on his hands over the years we’ve been in a war with Iran, his termination was fully justified and our Commander-in-Chief had every right, obligation even, to do what he did! He deserves only praise and pride and support by every American. Instead, the demonRats are… Read more »

It’s Kabuki theater. Iran was captured by the globalists a long time ago and is fully controlled by BIS, IMF, and the UN, among others. Iran is rapidly implementing all aspects of UN Agenda 2030 as is the entire middle east with Saudi Arabia leading the pack (Vision 2030).

No he was not on a “peace” mission. He just got through killing his own people. You can see this here https://observers.france24.com/en/20191224-iran-hidden-slaughter-video-investigation-protest . He went to Iraq to organize his Militia groups. To further the extremist cause.The Saudi’s should know about funding militias well. They’ve done their share as well.

Soleimani was on a travel ban from the U.N. He was not supposed to leave Iran. If he was on a peace mission for Saudi Arabia what was he doing in Iraq?

The US government is lying to you! Anyone in the comments ever hear of Operation Ajax? The CIA overthrew Iran’s government in 1953. And they are trying to do it again. Wake up!! BP Oil, then known as Anglo-Persian Oil, was cheating Iran, so the people elected Mosadegh, and he nationalized the oil fields. Britain came crying to the US to get the oil fields back and Kermit Roosevelt at the CIA devised a plan to destabilize the country and overthrow Mosadegh. No more endless wars!!

Absolutely, Lulz. The USG’s been lying to us and the rest of the world. Yes, the CIA overthrew Iran’s legitimate gov’t in 1953 and installed the tyrannical Shah.
I was just a child when Mosadegh was overthrown; thus, I haven’t heard of this until a decade ago, when I came across an article written by TomatoBubble.com Managing Editor Mike S. King on this very story .. He nailed that story brilliantly.
