that they invited him by intermediary of Iraq's Prime Minister.

are too coward to fearing risking their jobs, or losing access

But no rule, no law
and no standard of ethics is respected by Washington.
A behavior very much
like the one of the Barbarians...
General Soleimani, who
was much more than a general, he was also a great diplomat, was
asked by PM Abdul-Mahdi on behalf of Trump to come to Bagdad to be
part of a mediation process that Trump asked PM Abdul-Mahdi to lead,
to ease tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia, as well as between
the US and Iran.
This was an abjectly,
cowardly ploy to assassinate Qassem Soleimani.
How deep can you
There are no words to
describe the horrible crime.
The lie-spangled Pompeo immediately came up with a general cover-all
phrase used by Washington at nauseatum,
Soleimani was a
terrorist and a danger to (US) national security...
Be aware dear reader,
no Iranian, not
General Soleimani nor anybody else, has ever threatened the US,
not with words, not with weapons.
Barbarian-in-chief had the
audacity to threaten Iran to hit 52 of their cultural heritage
sites, in case Iran dared to retaliate.
But retaliate Iran
did - last night, by sending some 22 missiles onto two US-Iraqi
casualties, but no clear figures are known.
"all is good"...
When asked about his
promised retaliation on the retaliation, Trump backtracked saying he
has been told that destroying historic sites would be against the
law, and he wanted to abide by the law.
Can you imagine...?

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammad Javad Zarif, from

in the week, by simply refusing a US entry visa.
This is against the UN

The Ukrainian Airline Crash

morning hours of 3 January near Tehran airport, shortly
after take-off, was shot down by a Russian missile.
and crew, 176 people, died in the crash. There is not a
shred of evidence, or even suspicion that a Russian missile
was close to the place of accident.
Barbarians live off lies and crimes in impunity.
Admission by IRGC
In the meantime,
however, the Iranian Revolutionary Forces, the Islamic
Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), admitted having shot
down the Ukrainian airliner by mistake, taking it as a
foreign object, especially so close to Tehran airport.
Why would they
only know admit the responsibility for the disaster?
apparently it took the IRGC 48 hours to clarify among

New sanctions on Iran
Barbarian Trump says new sanctions will be added to those
already existing, sanctions that will hurt even more - and,
yes, he says, like the Good Father of Mother Earth talking
to his children, it's all up to the Iranians, they can
behave like a good nation behaves, or they will be punished
And they will
hurt. It's entirely up to them. No description of what the
appropriate behavior for the Barbarians would involve.
Can you believe this...?
If you wouldn't witness
such aberrant BS with your own eyes and ears, it would be truly
unbelievable, that the world is run by such un-people, well,
Barbarians - and, yes, again - the docile people of this globe
