The assassination of the commander of the IRGC Americans: the reaction of Moscow, Beijing and Damascus


We recently reported how the Pentagon reported about the murder in Iraq, with the help of a missile "defensive strike", the commander of the special unit "Quds" ("Cods") of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) of Iran, Major General Kassem Suleimani and like in Tehran promised avenge this. Now the reaction of Russia, China and Syria to the incident has become known.


So, the Russian Foreign Ministry, expressing "sincere condolences to the Iranian people," officially declares that Moscow considers the assassination of the general an "adventurous step" aimed at increasing tension in the region. The Foreign Ministry notes that Suleymani "devotedly served the cause of protecting Iran’s national interests."

At the same time, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, commenting on what happened, said at a briefing that Beijing has consistently opposed the use of military force in international relations. The Chinese diplomat said that Beijing continues to closely monitor this incident and the development of the situation in the region as a whole.

As for the reaction of official Damascus, he “strongly condemns the US criminal aggression” (the assassination of an Iranian general in Baghdad). This is stated in a widespread statement by the Foreign Ministry of Syria.

We remind you that Baghdad’s reaction to this “egregious” manifestation of “democracy” is also known. For example, Iraqi Acting Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi regards the US missile strike at Baghdad's international airport as an act of aggression against his country.

      Moscow CORRECTLY considers the assassination of the general “an adventurous step” aimed unequivocally at increasing tension in the region.

        Did the deceased general reduce tension in the region?

    Interesting "girls are dancing"! In Berlin, unknown banged ABREKA - all the punishment for Russia! Amerikosy banged the general and with him a few more people - so, they say, it should be with the "enemies of the United States"! Cynicism and duplicity in all its "glory"!

      This "general" was certainly not an abrek - he was one of the main executors of international terror, which is the doctrine of Iranian Islamophists. As the great Putin bequeathed, it is necessary to wet the terrorists in the toilet, which the Americans are doing successfully.

        He was a fighter against US-Israeli international terror. And yet, yes, American terrorists must be drowned in toilets. That's just sorting may not be enough for everyone. It was painfully many Yankes bred them all over the world.

          Well, where do they go before the Russian terror. Then the Russian state terrorists need to be drowned in the toilet twice :))) How much rubbish the Russians have bred ... Specifically, Suleymani was one of the main vehicles of Shiite terror and an aggressive Islamist-fascist ideology. Do you Russians not know this? For the ayatollah obscurantists, the USSR has always been the "little Satan," and in Afghanistan they also very well helped the "Mujahideen." I am surprised at you - with the last scum they are ready to be friends, if only against the Americans ...

        So no evidence is presented! The United States can be blamed with the same confidence! Or they say on your ukrokhutor that Russia is to blame for the murder of ABREK, which means that it is!

          I am generally from the Tomsk region. Leaving evidence of involvement - it means roughly working, but here the specialists tried. Especially in Germany and the Ichkeria and Kadyrovites a considerable number.

      But what should Russia stoke for Shiite Islamists? In fact, they called the USSR “the small Satan” (the big one is the USA), and in Afghanistan the “Mujahideen” helped a lot.

    Whatever the reaction. This is all a "storm in a glass." Tell me, is Suleymani better or worse than Hussein or Gaddafi? He is a lower rank and glory thinner. Until the United States puts in a crisis like the Caribbean, they will "wipe their feet" on sovereignty, international law and other absurdities. The State Department, barely hiding, commands the European Union, whom it wants, it is bombed. Two countries - China and Russia, are trying to avoid the United States, and even not quite, the less decisive their leaders are, the more impudent the Yankees.

      And what should be “decisiveness”? Declare US war? Or introduce sanctions? Actually, it’s possible to forbid them to keep deposits with Sberbank, not to accept for treatment in Russia, to expel their offspring from Russian universities, to ban them from giving Russian citizenship, but who knows ...

                  So you actually have to somehow inform the authorities about these measures, because they, apparently, are not aware of them. It is completely unpatriotic on your part to keep secret such strategic things.

    The response of Russia and Iran to this could be a full-scale attack on Idlib ...
    But, along the way, a trap was being prepared there. Not otherwise.
    With the deaths of civilians in Idlib, Americans can directly support the militants in Idlib - i.e. We are waiting for a missile strike at the CAA airbase. The bombardment of the advanced forces of the SAA means that our Russian mercenaries will fall under the hand. American + Israeli fighters can shoot down our Su-34s ...

    In short, everything is planned there, as if on a chessboard.
    Waiting for.

    Yes, I could work in the Russian Foreign Ministry in the analytics department.

    And he would advise Putin - "all Saudi oil storage facilities should be destroyed."
    The chain-Moscow-Iran-Yemen-Hussites.
    Prepare the operation during the first half of 2020.
    And under the cover of a “false” attack in Idlib - press the “red button”.
    After which the oil price will jump to $ 80-90.

    In exchange for Iran, to sell cheap Su-24-25-27 fighters.
    In exchange for their UAV.

      You somehow disappoint me. You do not have a place in the Foreign Ministry. With such advisers, enemies are not necessary. Do you really think that Moscow is sleeping and wants to be in your chain:

      Moscow-Iran-Yemen-Hussites.

      And the Russian Federation in this story with the United States will somehow seriously "sign" for Iran? !! And you don’t have to make the audience laugh and put the Russian military-industrial complex in nothing with an offer about Iranian drones. And at a low price, the Union sold a lot of things to whom, and more often, distributed them, and where is the Union and its “friends” sponsored by it now? We still forgive debts. Well, well, of course, send a letter to Putin with your valuable advice, what if I'm wrong in evaluating your analytical skills?
