Millions Demonstrate in Baghdad calling for a dismantling of U.S. military bases and an end to its military presence in Iraq – January 24, 2020

“The Assassination of Qassem Soleimani – The U.S. Shoots Itself In the Foot in the Middle East…Again” with Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. KGNU 1390 AM, 88.5 FM – Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues. Tuesday, January 28, 2019. 6 pm Mountain Time.

We’ll discuss the latest developments in the Middle East, trying as usual to deconstruct the mainstream government and media narrative and explain – or try to – what is actually going on. 

Yes, it was a political assassination of a high level representative of a foreign government. As some people have noted – even during the most tense periods of the Cold War – the United States never assassinated a high level Soviet official as it did Qassem Soleimani.

In fact it was a political assassination of government representatives of two foreign governments. Besides Qassem Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was killed. Although the mainstream media tries to portray him as a “militia” leader, he was actually a high level official in the Iraqi government.

It was also the first time since WW2 that a government openly challenged the US government militarily with the Iranian missile strike on the two US bases in Iraq.

In any case, we’re going to talk about this assassination – and what it set in motion in some detail
