This one is a puzzle. I have been watching TV and BOTH sides are saying that Soleimani is a terrorist and a monster responsible for killing thousands of Americans.
As far as I can tell he is an Iranian General who supports Iran and Shias everywhere. The Shias are massively outnumbered by their enemies the Sunni. When Shia enclaves/groups come under fire the Iranians support them against the Sunni trying to kill them. This has been going on for over 1000 years!
Apparently Soleimani also is supposed to have invented the IED. As far as I can tell he has also created groups to try and deal with American presence. Given our history, in that part of the world I wouldn't want us there either. We slaughtered, for instance, OVER 2 hundred thousand in Iraq whilst saving them from the Saddam monster. I have no idea of our toll in Afghanistan but I have full faith we have slaughtered thousands more. In other words, if you are in another country, and the Americans come to save you RUN LIKE HELL!https://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/file...-2014%20FIN.pdf
Someplace else I inferred that we have not exactly experienced any Iranian Terrorism - yet. As far as I can tell that's a fact (not really sure). I do know that we have experience a LOT of Sunni terrorism and still do. They just killed some of ours in Africa just the other day! (its a regular occurrence)
Anyway, all that being said. Can anybody tell me why this guy is a terrorist, a monster, and has killed thousands of Americans? OR is his reputation all about his support of his own because he is fighting against an American that invades and slaughters, literally, thousands upon thousands?
Basically, was he any different than the United States which seems to have a real penchant for slaughter.
I also did a google search on him. Can't find anything that would make him anymore than somebody who opposes us with, I think, some justification.
