Lest we forget…
In 2008 Gen. Qassem Soleimani sent a text message across to 🇺🇸 Gen. David Petraeus bragging that he was in control of the policy for Iran and I quote:
“You should know that I, Qassem Soleimani , control the policy for Iran with respect to Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza and Afghanistan. And indeed, the Ambassador in Baghdad is a Quds Force member. The individual who’s going to replace him is a Quds Force member.”
The U.S never forgets. General Soleimani was the most powerful “military front” in that region. On January 3 2020 the pentagon took care of business.
