Dear General Petraeus, you should know that I, Qassem Suleimani, 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.
In a text message conveyed by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to CIA director David Petraeus
It’s a great night to be an Iraqi in Baghdad as the pro-Democracy people embrace the news the way every American should: As the end of a murderous terrorist leader who brought fear and death with every decision he made. '
He was Tehran’s top proxy with the evil militia groups in Iraq who not only attacked Americans, but who also reigned over the people of Iraq with an iron fist. They are the government, or rather, they were.
This move by President Trump will discombobulate them at the least and may cause division between the various factions. Soleimani was the linchpin that kept them working together. Now, there’s a void in coordination.
More videos keep emerging of the celebration in the streets....

Top Taiwanese general: death by helicopter crash.
Top Iranian general: death by airstrike.
Both within 24 hours. I know the main narrative is about the embassy in Baghdad but is there a second narrative? Just seems strange.

Lance, check, in the old [pre-drone] days, we would land the Corps and the enemy would get ventilated by gunfire or blown up. I strongly doubt there was any [ever?] congressional approval for all the ops that took place in the 20th century.
The missile likely has a 100 percent lethal danger zone of about 30 inches.

If so, /ourguys/ ought to be able to trace who provided that leak to the paper. A high level deep state rat inside the pentagon or WH? They need dismissal and an indictment.

Before this is over, it is going to be revealed that the enemedia is full of traitors, loyal, not to our country and our people, but to globalists and renegade(s) that keep them in business.
......In 1897, New York Journal/San Francisco Examiner publisher William Randolph Hearst sent a number of correspondents
to Cuba to file dispatches on the conflict there between Spanish colonialists and Cuban rebels. In fact the rebels held no territory, had a small number of followers, and were vastly out manned and outgunned by the Spanish occupiers.
Thus after having been there for a time, artist Frederick Remington sent a telegram to Hearst saying that the situation was quiet and nothing much was happening and
...Hearst famously is said to have replied, 'Please remain. You furnish the news and I'll furnish the war.' This anecdote was related in Hearst operative James Creelman's 1901 memoir, and there is no other source for this story that has yet come to light, so we must necessarily take it with a grain of salt, but current
scholarship tends to downplay Hearst's role in fomenting the Spanish-American war, as well as Hearst papers' tendency to print stories that were, to put it bluntly, lies.
