BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – In light of the U.S. designating the Islamic Revoluationary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a “terrorist organization”, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week that Iran’s commander of its Quds Force (IRGC unit), Major General Qassem Suleimani, will be viewed the same way as the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

“He’s a terrorist. Qassem Suleimani has the blood of Americans on his hands, as do the forces he leads,” Pompeo told Fox News.

“America is determined each time we find an organisation, institution or an individual that has taken the lives of individuals, it is our responsibility to reduce that risk,” he added.

Suleimani has been an active presence in several Middle East countries, including Syria and Iraq.

The Iranian general has often traveled to both Iraq and Syria to not only rally troops, but also to implement battle plans and meet with military commanders.

The last time Suleimani was publicly pictured was during his meeting with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Today USA is acting exactly the same like the Roman Empire 20 centuries ago. Well, we all know the Roman Empire doesn’t exist a long time ago. In the same time the Persians country is still here where we’ve been many many centuries before all those “Western” countries even existed…

Except the Persian Empire has been destroyed by those creepy bigots with their imported death cult! The Zoroastrian wiseness is long gone. The Persian empire was it : The Shitlamic repulsebleek is it : Roman empire was it : And now, the EU : We’re half a billion on 4,422,773 km2 added with 2,743,510km² overseas territories, So, the remains of the Roman-Empire are still as big as the Mid-East, except we’re as one in the EU… But “the West” is not only the Roman Empire… It’s also : Oh, BTW, the Roman Byzantine empire became… Oh, BTW, culturally speaking, Francophonia… Read more »

@USR, the US are modeled on Rome and are about to change from the Republic to the Empire.

Modern Shiite Persia was founded by Turkmens dynasties.
The Sunni Arabs destroyed the old empire and its power.
Only the Iranian language of the empire is still there.

Parts of the Roman empire lasted till the 15 century. And the Romanic languages are spoken in half the world. Only English is as wide spread.

You history is inaccurate, the Roman and the Holy Roman empire still exists just mutated into a different but same Beast. The Papal church and the Emperor seat is still there, the Latin language mutated into hybridized Germanic Romance English, the Emperor seat is the European states including USA,Canada, AUS and NZ and many Russians(who are historically European nationals). The Imperial Roman Army is NATO which in many instances(hidden, like in Africa, ME etc) work hand in hand with Russian Military. Although we know that in the near future, the Empire shall war against itself to its destruction. Therefore the… Read more »

@tshepo, the last vestige of Rome was the Holy Roman Empire that defeated the Turks before Vienna. There is no emperor seat – the US that are no Empire with an Emperor yet. English is still basically a West Germanic language – except for loan words of Latin origin. The Papal church lost against the Reformation.

The European culture based states are no Arabs or Muslims that constantly feud among themselves or/and with other Semites.

Except perhaps the coming Empire aka US nobody lives of war. Like the Roman Empire did.

Now a direct threat of assassination on General Soleimani in the spirit of Al Donuti-Baghdadi? That should really help pacify 90 million Iranians. Wannabe mafia Don Pompeo is likely not long for this world.

On 90 millions Iranians, there are 87-88 millions that won’t miss the Basij Gestapo and its führer Khamenei.

We’re 70M in my country and we only have about 2,500… And Brits consider it being due to our rogue way of driving! The water crisis is also due to his mafia, while IRGC owns half the economy of the country… I faaaaar prefer the Yankees, even if I’m nowhere near from liking their ways, to… Read more »

A recent Poll was conducted in Iran by an US-Canadian institut which the US government is much relying in (even the Israeli government). 81% to 82 % of iranians has a negative view on US and more than 85 % of iranians support the foreign policies of their government. Just one year ago they did another Poll in Iran and they found that Qassem Suleimani is the most popular person in Iran with a rate of 83 % of favorable view…The link to this Poll : https://www.iranpoll.com/publications In fact, it is Israel that should be scared if there is a… Read more »

Oh, you know, between 1923 and 1945, the most popular dude in Italy was Benito Mussolini. You can see him picture with Claretta Petacci, his mistress, on April 28th 1945

Just because Jewish-inspired and western backed northern communists killed Mussolini, does not mean most of the country hated him. In fact Mussolini was rather popular and still is to some degree today amongst many Italians. Well its not like democracy in Italy ever worked too well.

With only 2% of Iranians still attending Friday prayers in mosques, once the heads of the hydra cut and its heart pierced, the region will start to stabilise… Or not… It will depend on the people after all. We shall neutralise Qatar and Turkey, and it’d be good not having the Saudis not interfering later too…

In mens sana…..the Latin creed…”a healthy mind in a healthy body.” Suleimani looks to me like he eats a bowl of yoghurt and a piece of fruit for breakfast. Maybe jogs around whatever airfield he’s at for an hour or so before prayers with a squad of his men…doing arm exercises with an AK. Whereas one imagines Pompeo spending twenty minutes on the toilet first thing, evacuating his bowels of yesterday’s excesses…before heading to his local House Of Pancakes for an extra tall stack with corn syrup.

How can you compare this Iranian rafida to a man like baghdadi? Baghdadi doesn’t hide behind Russia or China baghdadi doesn’t humiliate himself, baghdadi waged war against Zionist State America and her allies, suleimani is a roach, he sold himself to allies of shayatin, he tried to fight against Muslims, suleimani fought side by side with Russia and America against Muslims now God will punish him, America invade iran but spare it’s people they are nice it’s only their regime which is bad, but never ever again compare baghdadi to suleimani, it’s like comparing tiger to a roach

Baghdadi does america a favour by giving them an excuse tostay in syria and iraq! He has done nothing against the real enemy for the middle east which is the greater israel project, if hes not on the payrol he sure should be! Isil,isis,daesh and the “caliphate” was only going one place and thats destruction!! Fancy making enemys of every single possible ally against your most powerful enemy the u.s.!! The whole enterprise was doomed from the outset! Bunch of savages doesnt tell the half of it!!

Do you know what allowed the rise of Zarqawi+Soleimani-created ISIS? When Yankees were “invited” to pull out from Iraq by al-Maliki and actually complied! In //, Soleimani had put up Shia death squads to persecute Iraqi Sunnis already during US occupation, it triggered the alliance of ISIS AKA al-Qaeda/Iraq with Iraqi…Ba’athists which Bremer had previously all fired! Just look at who were ISIS military leaders in 2013/2014! Near all were former Saddam’s army/intelligence high ranking officers! And they were ally to… General al-Douri’s private army!
