Qasem Soleimani: Mourners flood the streets as body returns to Iran - BBC News



Hundreds of thousands of mourners have turned out in Iran to receive home the remains of Qasem Soleimani, the general killed by a US drone strike in Iraq.

In Ahvaz, where Soleimani served during the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88), mourners chanted: “Death to America.”

Soleimani was the architect of Iran’s sphere of influence across the Middle East, and was considered to be the country’s second most powerful man.

His assassination marked a significant escalation between Iran and the US.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, who had a close personal relationship with Soleimani, has warned of “severe revenge” for the attack, and analysts say Iran may pursue cyber-attacks against the US or traditional attacks on US targets or interests in the Middle East.

  1. Let's be real.

    Even if more troops are sent in, there's no win condition for the u.s., the only result will be a lot of unnecessary deaths of u.s. enlisted men and women along with people on the other side, that's it.

    If the u.s. really needs to worry about anyone, it would be that KGB b@$+3*d in Russia, but oh .. that's our current president's buddy/boss.

  2. Qassem Soleimani was the great Iranian General who not only was unique in defending Iran and bringing safety in the country, but also provided security, safety and comfort for various countries by fighting terrorist groups such as ISIS and eliminating them from the region. But countries such as the United States and Israel, who have confessed to be the creator of ISIS, were frustrated that General Soleimani had kicked ISIS out from the region and stood up to the U.S. bullying, and plotted to assassinate him. But in order to purify their face in global communities, identified Soleimani as an evil and a terrorist. They claimed he has killed American soldiers! Soleimani destroyed ISIS, did he attack the U.S. and kill American soldiers? No, American soldiers are killed in other countries because they’re continuously invading other countries to serve the interests of Israel and the United States.
    The killer of American soldiers is the U.S. government itself, not any other country. Major General Soleimani neither killed an American soldier nor he was a terrorist, he fought against savages who cut off the heads of innocent people. The Western media may lie as much as they want, but the truth is clear crystal to those who seek it.

  5. Hahahahaha yeah Iran good luck with that. Now come thousands of Iranians protesting the Iranian government and how fucked up it is Feared abroad. I fear the zit on my ass much more.

  6. Iran poses different threats to nations and regions across the globe.

    Since Israel’s defensive war against Hezbollah in 2006, Iran has not only replenished Hezbollah’s arsenal of artillery rockets but increased it exponentially, and has supplied more advanced anti-tank weapons and surface-to-air missiles.

  7. Iran also supports Palestinian terror groups opposed to a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. From 1993-2006, Iran provided approximately $30 million in annual subsidies to Hamas. Since Hamas’ electoral victory in 2006, Iran has transferred several hundred million dollars annually to Hamas.

  8. Iran also provides the vast majority of Hamas’ weaponry. Since Israel’s defensive Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, Iran has supplied Hamas with advanced weaponry, including dozens of Iranian-produced 122mm Grad rockets which have significantly increased the range of Hamas’ rocket arsenal.
