Financial N-option will settle Trump’s oil war

On foreign soil, as a guest nation, US has assassinated a diplomatic envoy whose mission the US had requested.

The bombshell facts were delivered by caretaker Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, during an extraordinary, historic parliamentary session in Baghdad on Sunday.

Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani had flown into Baghdad on a normal carrier flight, carrying a diplomatic passport. He had been sent by Tehran to deliver, in person, a reply to a message from Riyadh on de-escalation across the Middle East. Those negotiations had been requested by the Trump administration.

So Baghdad was officially mediating between Tehran and Riyadh, at the behest of Trump. And Soleimani was a messenger. Adil Abdul-Mahdi was supposed to meet Soleimani at 8:30 am, Baghdad time, last Friday. But a few hours before the appointed time, Soleimani died as the object of a targeted assassination at Baghdad airport.

Let that sink in – for the annals of 21st century diplomacy. Once again: it does not matter whether the assassination order was issued by President Trump, the US Deep State or the usual suspects – or  when. After all, the Pentagon had Soleimani on its sights for a long time, but always refused to go for the final hit, fearing devastating consequences.

Now, the fact is that the United States government – on foreign soil, as a guest nation – has assassinated a diplomatic envoy who was on an official mission that had been requested by the United States government itself.

Comment from the original post. Everett on January 06, 2020 · at 3:43 pm EST/EDT If this is true and the assassination took place on an official diplomatic mission at the request of the Empire, this is an act of treachery of the highest order. Only the most unhinged of despots throughout world history have resorted to such acts. This is far beyond an Archduke Ferdinand moment. This is an unequivocal statement by the Empire that it recognizes no international boundaries and that all are subject to its whims. It is also a demonstration of insanity that should not be… Read more »
