The Assassination Of Qassem Soleimani

WASHINGTON, Jan 2 (Reuters) - A U.S. strike killed Iran Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani, the Pentagon said on Thursday, adding that Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack Americans in Iraq and the Middle East. "At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qassem Soleimani," the Pentagon said in a statement. "This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans," it said, adding that the United States would continue to take necessary action to protect Americans and interests around the world.

OK. . .so another US blunder in the Middle East.  We've come to expect these over the long long decades, stretching all the way back until at least 1953 when the United States overthrew Iran's democratically elected government. 

All these blunders, whether committed by democrat or republican administrations, are said to be done to further American National Interest and/or to Keep America Safe. . .that they always do the exact opposite is something American foreign policy makers remain remarkably incognizant of.

Of course, these blunders have also caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of piss-poor colored people.  These deaths cause absolutely no psychic disturbance to the idiotic American sheeple.  That a few thousand American *servicemen* die does trouble some of the sheeple, some of whom think such deaths, died by dopes volunteering to fuck up colored peoples countries, are *noble* and/or *tragic,* when, in point of fact, they are just, at best, pointless, or, at worst, a tiny payment on a karmic debt.

This latest blunder, the assassination of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, is said to have been necessary to deter future Iranian attack plans.


Is this logical thinking?

It seems there are two possible outcomes:

A.) Iran is so frightened by the murder of General Soleimani, they drop whatever nefarious operations they had been planning, or

B.) Iran is so outraged by the murder of General Soleimani, they continue whatever nefarious operations they had been planning, and toss in a few extra for revenge.

Readers can decide for themselves which outcome seems more likely. . .

It also must be pointed out that for at least the last twenty years the United States and her albatross Israel have insisted that Iran is *just six months away* from having a nuclear weapon.  Those who believe option B above is the most likely outcome must now hope Usrael's nuke-mongering has all been baseless propaganda.  Let's check back again in six months. . .

In the meantime, one can only wonder: does the assassination of General Soleimani make Iran more or less likely to develop nuclear weapons capability (or accelerate that capability, if already under development)?  Would Iran like to remain defenseless to the mercy of the whims of American bOObs like Trump, or have some deterrent of its own?  Again, readers can decide for themselves which seems more likely. . .
