The media likes to pretend that former President Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s terror strongman was some random warmongering, but there was a very clear chain of events that led to the Soleimani hit.
Kataib Hezbollah terrorists, trained and funded by Soleimani’s Quds force, attacked the US embassy in Baghdad. After trying to set it on fire, they sprayed the message, “Soleimani is our leader” on the walls.
Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the head of Kataib Hezbollah, who had been at the scene of the attack, then headed to meet up with Soleimani. That’s when the US took out Soleimani, Munhandis and a number of Iran’s IRGC and Iraqi PMF terrorists in a precision strike.
We’ve been hearing from Kataib Hezbollah, a Shiite Iranian-backed Islamic militia, again lately.
President Biden ordered strikes on three locations in Iraq after three U.S. service members were wounded, one critically, in an attack on Erbil Air Base early Christmas morning credited to a militia group backed by Iran.
In a statement Monday, National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said Biden directed the strikes against three facilities used by Kataib Hezbollah and affiliated groups, which claimed credit for the initial attack against U.S. personnel.
Trump responded to attacks by going after top figures in the terror food chain including Soleimani who was the guy behind all this.
Biden however keeps launching Clinton-style limited strikes which just keep this going without doing any serious damage.
