  1. So let me get this straight. Fact 1. Iran was planing to attack us embassy ( which means military personal of Iran gathered and came up with a plan of how to do it). Fact 2 Americans find out about that plan and take out military commander Suleimani claiming that Mr Trump just saved many American lives. So basically they are saying to 300 millions Americans that only Suleimani knew how to complete this attack. without him no other Iranian general nor military person could do this. If Irans military intelligence INITIALLY really intended to attack us Embassy, why they don’t do it now?? Now they are more angry than before, and before they wanted to attack it. So using what logic killing one person makes people safe from the initial plan for attack. Media is just shittting on top of out brains like we are fuckin’ morons…another Gadafi, Hussein, bullshit….

  2. im from philippines. we are known to be the most numbers of overseas workers. thousands of my fellow countrymen working in iran. gotta pulled them out immediately. trumps tantrums cost too much in civilisation

  3. lol who is this fool called expert when he didn't know anything about Iranian military power claiming saudis are more powerful. where do you find these experts BBC!!!!!

  4. Real serious threat! Iran is going to invade America on donkey back! Iran even has donkey submarines and planes! Trump is scared! As America has no Radar that detects donkeys!

  5. general soleimani was the biggest anti ISIS commander but the us assassinated him so America backs ISIS. why don't you tell the truth to the American people announce the result of the iranian missile attack on the ain al Assad's base ? eighty two people killed and three hundred injured as a result of trump's stupidity of the us military and six helicopters and eight aircraft and 15 UAVs destroyed. rest assured the vengeance continues

  6. 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.
