An early response from Iran is that they have more or less abandoned the nuclear deal. That won't stress out Trump, I suppose, but what a retrograde step it is. One thing we know is that, while Iran sponsors Hezbollah and supports Hamas, they have never physically invaded other nations. That can hardly be said for most of the nations surrounding them and for the western nation that sees it as its God-given right to interfere in the Middle East. That is not to say that Iran is any sort of paragon. It definitely is not. But if we continually shit on countries like Iran we shouldn't be surprised if we reap a whirlwind.

They invade other countries through proxy armies that they train, arm and support, what do you think Soleimani was doing with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis the commander of Kata'ib Hezbollah militia in Iraq? The same militia that was behind the attack on the US embassy. Iran also has proxy armies in Syria, where they ruthlessly slaughtered thousands in service to Assad, Yemen, Lebanon and Gaza.

And the US fights and has fought proxy wars all over the place. And I suppose that if I remind you that the US gives around three billion of military aid to tiny Israel every year, aid which has supported Israeli invasions, repeatedly in some cases, of Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt, not to speak of air strikes in Iran, you'll call me antisemitic or something...

For 2017, out of a total $49 billion in US foreign aid Israel received $3.2 billion. In the same year Arab and Muslim countries received more that $20 billion of American taxpayer money. The biggest recipients were Afghanistan with $5.7 billion followed by Kuwait with $4.5 billion and Iraq with $3.7 billion.

you'll call me antisemitic or something.

Seeing your need to insert Israel into a discussion that has nothing to do with Israel and your obsession with the fact that Israel receives US aid and saying that Israel "invaded" those places, which implies offensive actions, I don't have call you anything it's pretty much self evident.

Had the US and UK not replaced Mohammad Mosaddegh the 35th prime minister of Iran, with the Shah, the subsequent history of Iran would have been very different. The US backed Shah was deeply unpopular and replaced by a popular revolution. Iran voted by national referendum to become an Islamic republic on 1 April 1979 and to formulate and approve a new theocratic-republican constitution whereby Khomeini became Supreme Leader of the country in December 1979.
and you could argue it has been downhill ever since.
Around 90–95% of Iranians associate themselves with the Shia branch of Islam, the official state religion. According to official statistics, 75–85% of Saudi Arabian citizens are Sunni Muslims,
With the red flag unfurled over the Jamkaran Mosque it could argued that this maarks the fight between Dar al-Islam, for the Muslim peoples--and Dar al-Harb for everyone else whom must be forced into submission. Some argue this division of the world was corrupted by the Sunni monarchy of Saudi Arabia when they betrayed Islam by willfully becoming a part of what is known as the US Petrodollar System.
Perhaps looking at recent history through the lens of the link below explains many things

First, don't forget that Britain and France had immense roles in defining what became the countries of I ran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, et al. after World Wars I and II.

Secondly, a recent decision was made to allow Saudi Arabia to make US "smart bombs" and the technology to do so has already been transferred.

Thirdly, with the decision by Iraq to require the removal of ALL US forces there and the statement by you-know-who to slam the Iraqis with heavy sanctions if such removal happens, Iraq will move to Iran for help. This will pit Iraq/Iran against the Saudis, and Kuwait and the Gulf States will get the short end of it.

Fourthly, the US Navy very recently decided to cut way, way back on shipbuilding in 2020 and has given up its plans for a 595 ship fleet (I think that was the number).

You can think of more, I'm sure.

As for what is being reported in the media this is what one poster who describes herself as "a proud and hopeful Syrian - now and always" has to say about that:

"Not saying a decent amount of Iranians arent upset about Soleimani. State propaganda can do that. But it seems lot of people dont know how this stuff works in totalitarian states. When Hafez Assad died his goons went into homes & basically threw you out in the street to mourn him."

I quote: I'm willing to wager that Mrrzy, whose father was killed in the terrorist car bombing of the US embassy in Beirut orchestrated by Soleimani, isn't wringing [their] hands over his "martyrdom". [Close quote.]

Not to mention that he didn't orchestrate that particular bombing as far as I can tell, and I sat through weeks of testimony.

And if he had, I would still be horrified by his murder.

Accusing me of stupidity is hardly apologizing for presuming me to be vengeful. Or to speak for me as if I were.

"...I am of the mind that eliminating someone..."

Aren't words a problem sometimes. You like the idea that we can "eliminate" him. You avoid saying murdering, assassinating, blowing him to pieces, or even just killing him (add "in cold blood," which would be true, if you like). You don't say whether you'd have been OK pushing the death button. Just now I eliminated a spider from the bath. He's currently outside the bathroom window trying to get back in.

Secondly you must have missed the quotation marks on the word martyrdom which, in this context are shorthand for so-called, the term was used by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in describing the killing of Solomeini.

As for the embassy bombing it was carried out by Hezbollah with the approval and financing of senior Iranian officials. Solomeini was in charge of Al Quds foreign operations which was deployed to Lebanon in 1982, where it assisted in the genesis of Hezbollah.

”I am of the mind that eliminating someone who is responsible for murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent people and preventing him from doing so again in the future is a good thing,”

So you would equally approve of similarly ‘eliminating’ the leader of the regime which, for the past number of years, has been carrying out a policy of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in Gaza, resulting in the murder or displacement of thousands of innocent people, and the theft of their homes and land?

We are all pacifists until someone kills our brother. Then the remaining pacifists are cannon fodder.

It is the way the world works. For religious zealots read greed. For warmongers, read power crazed aka greed. Not what we wish, but wishes don't stop bullets.

War is not pretty. But then as we are finding-out, neither is a burgeoning population dumping waste gasses into the atmosphere. Population is relevant - there is increasingly less territory and more neighbours to steal it from.

I don't suggest solutions, but like the "Great Stink" that got up the noses of politicians moving them to act on the pollution in the Thames............ Things have to get so worse before politicians act. Like I said "when someone kills your brother........."

Sorry Donuel I disagree with Intelligence and evil are actually mutually exclusive. Intelligence may figure much less, but can evade notice &/or capture. It can survive to reek much more havoc.

Another Washington Post columnist has an overarching view of the assassination and the repercussions: an interview on WNYC's The Takeaway

While Democratic and Republican leaders in Congress seem as divided as ever, the media portrayal of Iran shows the country united behind its government. But just how accurate is that viewpoint?

Journalist Jason Rezaian spent 544 days as a hostage of the IRGC, and today is weighing in on what that experience taught him about Iran’s leadership, and how the country could react to the killing of Major General Qassim Soleimani. He is also calling for a focus on how what comes next could affect everyday Iranians, who are desperate to avoid war.
