Did Putin approve the assassination of Soleimani?

Hello Duran,

I am conscious of having just signed up and immediately referring you to Info Wars (because of that organisation’s reputation). Allow me to briefly explain, though I get the impression that Alex Christoforou, at least, probably doesn’t need it.

While Alex Jones can be hyperbolic, and even over the top, he is frequently “ahead of the curve” when it comes to reporting on geo politics (and he usually just needs decoding that his audience understands but which his critics take too literally). He certainly has sources close to Trump which make a lot of his reporting on the administration worth considering.

I first came across Lee Stranahan, for example, on Info Wars and he has proven to be particularly reliable and advanced when it comes to Russia-gate / Ukraine-gate. I know that Alex Mercouris appears on Lee’s Sputnik program Fault Lines.

Not sure if you have come across Steve Pieczenik before. He can take some getting used to as he is self-aggrandising and brutal when it comes to criticism of people he doesn’t like. Like Alex Jones he is often ahead of the curve and has a number of intel sources at the State Department and the CIA (his CV checks out).

Pieczenik says two things which would seem to me to be of interest to the Duran:

Trump spoke to Putin and Putin approved the “hit” on Soleimani well before it occurred; and

Trump is gradually ceding “control” of the middle east to Putin/Russia.

These are comments Pieczenik made immediately after Soleimani was killed when he also predicted that there would be no escalation for, what are admittedly, all of the obvious reasons.

All of the key points are made in the first 10-15 minutes.

It would be good to get the Duran’s analysis of these points.

propaganda. assad pleaded, and soleimani persuaded, putin to intervene. if anyone remembers, soleimani went to Russia to persuade Russia to intervene. immediately thereafter, soleimani talked that everyone will be surprised in the next months.

Apparently Soleimani was surprised, as well as people like you. You’ve been holding onto to many uncontested narratives. Just because Soleimani went to Russia “pleading intervention” as you put it, and just because Putin or Lavrov or whomever may have met with him, it doesn’t mean that Putin doesn’t know who the “good” guys are, and who the “bad” guys are — with respects to Iran as much as America — he knows exactly who the deep state players are, and the matter of maintaining “optics” includes all meetings whatever. Most of you Duran hangers-on cannot bear to have your… Read more »

How would this benefit Russia? Russia that has a real problem with terrorism, would not want the best General against ISIS taken out. That is stupid and a pipe dream. It makes no real world sense. It certainly doesn’t pass Occams’ Razor.

Even a small amount of research and studying of Putin reveals that Putin does not operate this way. Whilst Jones & Info wars have been discredited countless times, you would be hard-pushed to find verifiable discreditation of Putin since his leadership of Russia and their resulting return to superpower status.

What a load of Bs! Pres Putin follows International Law and respects the sovereignity of other countries, unlike the outlaw USA and its minions.
The Yanks murdered Gen Soleimani: you are trying to deflect and put the blame on others. I won’t wash here. You are a disgusting shill.

Is this a joke? If not, why was this nonsense allowed to see the light of day on The Duran?

I’m not the Duran but here’s my analysis: you’re a nutjob.

Did Putin approve the assassination of Soleimani? ——That is just a silly statement made by a silly person. This whole Video and ‘Article’ is unbecoming of The Duran.
