The assassination of Qasem Suleimani is the beginning of crisis in the Middle East
Early on Friday, Qassem Suleimani, the head of the Quds Force,an élite division of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was killed by a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport ordered by President Trump and Iran has promised to seek revenge on the death of Qassem suleimani. Suleimani had been responsible for carrying out much of Iran’s military and diplomatic efforts over the past decade, from its support for Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria to its battles against isis in Iraq. His death is almost certain to escalate tension and conflict within Iraq, which has already been shaken by protests this week. It also raises questions about what Iranian policy will be in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and elsewhere going forward. Iran has extensive influence throughout the Middle East. It’s involved in proxy battles across the region from Iraq to Yemen to Syria.
Iran’s conventional strength is no match for the U.S. But what it does have is an assortment of local allies, local proxies stretching from Yemen to Iraq to Syria to Lebanon to Afghanistan. Even in the past few hours, U.S. officials have been saying on background that the attack against Soleimani came as a result of a potential imminent attack against U.S. diplomats and servicemen in several of those countries.

Obviously, I’m yet to comprehend Trump’s ordered air strike that led to the assassination of Qasem Suleimani. Though the United States intelligent claimed he ordered the attack on their embassy in Baghdad and that he has subsequent plans to attack U.S diplomats. Is this enough for a democratic leader to order the assassination of a sovereign nation’s military general? This is a grievous infraction on international law.
Sincerely, we are yet to see proof of the allegations leveled against Suleimani before his demise. Personally, I believe Trump ordered his assassination because he consider him a threat to U.S citizens and their interest in the Middle East. Qasem Suleimani is the second most powerful man in Iran who also enjoy a huge influence in the Middle East. Certainly, his assassination will not promote peace in the region. Rather it will expose Americans there.
Finally, the United States action in this whole impasse is illegal and catastrophic going forward. Now, the U.S have sanctioned Iran for a counter attack on their military base in Iraq. So who’s going to sanctioned U.S for the unlawful assassination of their most powerful general? This is injustice and the U.S most desist from this cheat way of attacking issues. This is the beginning of crisis in the Middle East and if not properly managed it could lead to a bloody war. Though I know Iran isn’t in the level of U.S but it will be catastrophic if any war occur. May God save Americans in the hand of this dictator called Trump….
