Trump, Pompeo ‘wanted terrorists’ in Soleimani assassination, subject to arrest or?


Press TV: Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi says the former US president and his secretary of state must stand trial for the “horrible crime” of assassinating Iran’s top anti-terror General Qassem Soleimani.

Raeisi made the remarks while addressing a gathering of thousands of mourners in the Iranian capital held to commemorate the second anniversary of the US assassination of the former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Quds Force, deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and their companions outside Baghdad International Airport in January 2020.

Addressing the American officials during his speech, Iran’s chief executive said, “Martyr Soleimani was official guest of the Iraqi government and by assassinating him, you both violated sovereignty of Iraq and assassinated an entire nation.”

“In the face of this horrible crime, the main violator and murderer and criminal, that is, then president of America [Donald Trump] must be put on trial and be punished in accordance with the God’s command,” Iran’s president said.

Raeisi went on to say, “If Trump and [his secretary of state, Mike] Pompeo and other criminals face trial before a just court and their horrible crime is prosecuted and they are punished for their brazen acts, it would be good. Otherwise I tell all the American statesmen that have no doubt that the [Muslim] Ummah will take revenge [for the assassination of Gen. Soleimani and his companion].”

He said the Americans thought that the assassination of General Soleimani would be “his last day,” but they were wrong as this day marked a new birthday for the top Iranian commander and he will be always remembered.

The Iranian president added that Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has rightly said that “martyr Soleimani” is more dangerous to the enemy than “General Soleimani,” because the likes of Soleimani will rise in the future.

The secret of General Soleimani’s victory was his fear of God, Raeisi said, adding that the top Iranian commander was aware of the US military capabilities but he strongly believed that “the US cannot do a damn thing.”

The Iranian president described General Soleimani as a “revolutionary commander that belonged to no political grouping” who had concerns about to save Islam and Muslims, sought the elimination of evil, corruption and oppression, and defended Sunnis, Shias, Palestinians, Lebanese, Yemenis, Izadis, Christians and all those who believed in the Abrahamic religions.

“Therefore, the most pressing issue for him was how to repel the enemy from the region and liberate the region,” Iran’s president said.

General Soleimani and his companions were killed in the US attack on January 3, 2020.

Five days later, in a military operation codenamed Operation Martyr Soleimani, the IRGC launched a volley of ballistic missiles at the Ain al-Asad air base in Iraq’s western province of Anbar. Over 100 American troops were later diagnosed with “traumatic brain injuries” in Ain al-Asad.

Iran has called Soleimani’s assassination state terrorism and vowed to put an end to the US military’s presence in the region as its ultimate revenge, while urging neighboring Iraq to expel US forces from the Arab country’s soil. The Islamic Republic has also pledged to bring all the perpetrators, first and foremost Trump, to justice.

In recent days, millions of people in Iran, Iraq, and elsewhere have been attending events marking the second anniversary of the two commanders’ martyrdom.

Kazem Gharibabadi, secretary general of Iran’s Human Rights Office, said on Sunday that 125 individuals, mostly US officials, have already been identified in connection with the horrendous crime against General Soleimani, and that some countries that were involved in the terrorist act were also asked to provide Iran with related information and documents.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is determined to cooperate with Iraq, as the country where the crime took place, to identify all perpetrators, sponsors, and plotters, and bring them to justice,” Gharibabadi added.

  1. Well, I think we all know him even being talked to is a pipe dream. If he represented even a tiny threat to ‘them’, they have a solution. Epstein was a bigger player in all reality. He truly knew where all the bodies were…and who they were. Did they really off him or did they disappear him? I would think that the Iranians would be able to develop scenarios wherein Trump could have an accident as well. I mean, making a speech at the UNSC was a joke and they know it, so what was the purpose? The Russians have been doing the same ad nauseum about Syria, with the identical results. The purpose? Make points in the public realm? The vast majority of MSM users never see or hear them anyways. F’ all the drama, it’s all for show anyway. Just have a Depends blow up and say he farted while lighting a cigar. Then say they don’t know $hit about it. The Mossad/CIA/MI6 do it all the time.

  2. David your second post is spot on but don’t forget that CIA is completely above the law and that terrorist trash pompe à eau made Trump go turbo. Their combo is bad news for the world.

  3. How hard will it be for Iran to get Trump and Pompeo? I mean so that only a DNA test would identify them. Honestly its not that hard just do it… no use waiting on American justice.. And then get Netanyahoo too. The smaller guys like Mossad chief and US generals will come later. The only way to get American respect!

  4. The ugly side of democracy, is that a group can take power, and do something really dumb and nasty, leave right after, and then the rest of us have to deal with it. This assassination was in the top 5 bad decisions of Trumps admin. Of the ones we know of so far.

    The current method of restraint is “obligatory civility and unwritten codes of conduct”. This is inadequate obviously, so we need to return the war powers to our congress, and put into place a barrier to prevent the executive branch from wielding unlimited military powers. The “war on terror” stinks of Monarchal militarism. Not what we signed up for. It is illegal in my opinion and unconstitutional in every way. We are responsible as a country.

    • Trump is first and foremost a New York mobster. General Soleimani was just one more high-profile mob hit. Like all Kosher Nostra mobsters before him, if the heat gets a little too uncomfortable it’s off to Israel he goes. Maybe they’ll set him up in Trump Heights on the Golan. That way he can play golf and diddle little boys and girls until he croaks.

    • I would think among actual mobsters, Trump is seen as a snotty nosed punk, that is a general nuisance and intolerable. They would feed on his carcass without a care. Trump only found receptive entanglements through religions, such as the Mormons and the Evangelicals and militant Catholics and Jews. He is the status of pariah in NY.

    • When you remember that Israel nuked us on 9/11 and got away with it, what’s one more assassination in the grand scheme of things?

    • This type of assassination has been used in the past to start wars. It is an unnecessary, dangerously provocative and “out of bounds” move in a world such as we have and even way before this. It appears the motive was to start a war, and with other assassinations like Kashogi , destabilizes the entire notion of embassies and safe effective travel of dignitaries, and basic civil conduct between countries. Trump and Pompeo did this abroad and at home.
      It is the type of damage that can take decades to fix. Any foreign country that goaded someone into this, must be held accountable. Israel and Saudi’s salivated at the opportunity to exploit a weak unfit president. Britain also. It is embarrassing.
