WASHINGTON (PNN) - January 3, 2020 - Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump explained in a series of tweets Friday why the FPSA opted to strike top Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani, accusing the general of plotting to kill Amerikans.
The Pentagon confirmed Thursday night that the FPSA was behind a drone strike that killed Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, in Iraq. The president had yet to personally speak about the news last night, instead opting to tweet an image of an Amerikan flag.
It wasn’t until Friday morning that Trump explained his decision to order the strike.
“General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Amerikans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more… but got caught. He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of protesters killed in Iran itself,” Trump tweeted. “While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country.”
He continued, “They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago.”
The Pentagon claimed in its statement confirming the attack that Soleimani was drawing up plans to kill Amerikan diplomats and service members prior to his death, adding that he approved the recent attack on the FPSA Embassy in Iraq.
Protesters stormed the FPSA Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week in retaliation for strikes on an Iran-backed militia group. The embassy was severely damaged and burned but no Amerikans were killed during the intrusion, and the FPSA diplomat to Iraq was successfully evacuated. The FPSA deployed 100 Marines to secure the embassy.
Trump opted to launch the air strikes after an Amerikan contractor was killed by a rocket attack in Iraq.
