    Kuwaiti report: US gives Israel go-ahead to kill General Qassem Soleimani

    There is always a danger in such plots. President Kennedy tried to kill Castro and we know how that turned out.
    But, if there is a time for this, considering the chaos in lran today, the time may be now.
    Of course, if General Soleimani is dead, according to some sources, this is a moot point.

    'Kuwaiti report: US gives Israel go-ahead to kill powerful Iranian general
    Newspaper says Washington and Jerusalem have overcome the differences that saw Americans tipping off Tehran about Israeli attempt to kill Qassem Soleimani 3 years ago
    By Sue Surkes Today, 4:10 pm

    capture: YouTube)

    US intelligence agencies have given Israel the green light to assassinate the senior Iranian responsible for coordinating military activity on behalf of the Islamic Republic in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida.

    For the past 20 years or so, Qassem Soleimani has commanded the Quds Force — the branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of the Islamic Republic.



    Soleimani is a key figure in efforts to prop up Syrian President Bashar Assad and to enable him to retake cities and towns from rebel groups during his country’s ongoing civil war. He is also responsible for providing military aid to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza — both of which are committed to the destruction of Israel — as well as to Shia and Kurdish groups in Iraq.

    Thursday’s report by al-Jarida, which has been known to publish improbable-sounding stories about Israel, was widely picked up by Israeli media.

    There was no immediate reaction to the report from Jerusalem or Washington.

    Three years ago, Israel came close to assassinating Soleimani near Damascus, al-Jarida quoted unnamed source as saying, but the Americans tipped off the Iranians against the background of intense disagreement between Washington and Jerusalem.

    That was during the Obama administration, which, according to reports at the time, was so focused on securing the 2015 Iran nuclear accord that it chose to overlook and even obstruct efforts to clamp down on Iranian-backed terror organizations.

    It’s not clear if the reported tip-off was related to efforts to secure the Iran deal.

    Today, the Trump and Netanyahu administrations see eye to eye on Iran. Just four days ago, the two countries signed a joint memorandum of understanding laying the groundwork for full cooperation to deal with Iran’s nuclear drive, its missile programs and its other threatening activities, an Israeli TV report said recently.

    The source was quoted by the paper as saying that Soleimani’s assassination would serve both countries’ interests and that US authorities have given Israel the go-ahead to carry it out.

    The United States does not need to be in the business of either sanctioning nor employing assassination of other countries leaders or political figures unless it wants to open up a Quid pro quo scenario, then all bets are off, and our own leaders will become targets in a shooting gallery, and do they actually think that we could protect them or their families? There was a time, perhaps going back century or so, when this country was actually honorable in it's dealings, but the stench does drift towards the heavens and I do believe that even the Lord God can smell it.

    My take - fake news story. If something happens to Soleimani both the US and Israel will be blamed. Neither US or Israel intelligence services are going to let something like that leak if they did conspire to do so (which under President Trump I would seriously doubt) so false to set us up.

    There is a difference between active interference and green lighting an assassination. Obama tipped him off three years ago to foil an Israeli op; and up until Trumps presidency, shared intelligence with Soleimani/Iran.

    In my view, this tells me US intelligence has been cut off to Soleimani. That it took this long to do so is indicative of just how pervasive the deep state prog-marxist-left was embedded within US intelligence assets.

    The only thing the US had to do is nothing. Neither sanction nor interfere and let Israel handle it.
    The green light narrative is perception of those obama was shielding.
    Facts?? We don't need no stinkin facts...

    Fake reporting.... we may have green lighted an assassination, but we do not make it public. Turn about being fair play and all. These folks believe an eye for an eye, all diplomats in foreign nations become instant targets of retribution...... Go ahead was probably as slight as making it clear we would look the other way and not tip anyone off, unlike Obama.

    We didn't green light anything. That is the fake news, the rest is disinformation.

    As with so many other things, green lights work both ways.

    Considering the actions of this man on behalf of his masters in Tehran, who with recent events are reported to be bugging out ahead of a lynch mob, would have in the "old days" been more than sufficient to justify a full up declaration of war, that this guy is still walking around to me indicates an "unseen hand" sheltering him and his bosses. The only hand until last year with that authority was Obama's.

    Exactly, if the Israelis wanted him dead, he would be.

    According to Wictor, Suleimani died about 3 years ago.

    That is incorrect. He's been seen and photographed as late as Sept 2017.

    It concerns me that our involvement in the Middle East is not to protect/defend the American people, but to pursue imperial economic goals and the defense and interests of Israel and the Saudis. Are we going to beat down every Sunni country? Is it right to us American soldier's lives and bodies for such purposes?

    General Qassem Soleimani is a very bad, and capable guy and really needs to be removed. I would put him on a par with Hitler.

    If you read Wictor, you will see that one photograph in Time claiming to be recent, may not be.

    Trump is doing things totally differently in the ME. I am sure the OP story is fake news.

    Time is not the only place his photo showed up. It's popped up in multiple locations over the intervening years, along with video, radio messages etc. Wictor has a bent for tinfoil hat conspiracy.
    He has no direct knowledge of anything, only his personal analysis using questionable tools.
    Sometimes he's right, sometimes he's wrong. This is one such time he was wrong.

    This story is a laughable piece of fake news, specifically designed to inflame Iran and cause them to react badly. In the real world, dozens of Iranian dissidents are right now being picked up for "plotting to kill this guy." Further, the Mullahs will use this to gather traction is their violent crushing of the ongoing riots.

    Heck, Iran's mullahs may have planted this story themselves.
