    Europe Cravenly Appeases Trump
    By Finian Cunningham

    January 07, 2020 "Information Clearing House" - If the United States and Iran do go to war, it will be in no small part due to the cowardly appeasement of European powers in the face of American criminality.

    Many commentators, including legal experts, have condemned the assassination of the Iranian military commander General Qasem Soleimani at Baghdad airport last week. It was brutal, cold-blooded murder carried out on the orders of US President Donald Trump.
    To kill a senior official of a foreign state in such a dastardly way is an act of war and a war crime.

    More especially because it has since emerged that Soleimani was on a diplomatic peace mission when he arrived at the airport, according to Iraqi prime minister Adel Abdul Mahdi. The Iraqi leader says Soleimani was engaged in efforts to tamp down regional tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran. What’s more, the Americans knew of this peace overture and apparently encouraged it. Then they turned around and murdered Soleimani.

    The subsequent character assassination of Soleimani by US officials – that he had blood on his hands of millions of civilians, that he was a terror chief, that his killing was a “pre-emptive defensive action” – is a disgusting effort to justify an unjustifiable act of murder carried out by the Americans.

    It is pathetic the way the US and European corporate news media have dutifully propagated the official American campaign to demonize Soleimani as some kind of terror mastermind. This ludicrous distortion of a brave military strategist who thwarted American and NATO regime-change operations in the Middle East completely whitewashes the gargantuan war crimes committed by Washington and its allies from their invasion and illegal occupation of countries, plunging those countries into bloody chaos, causing millions of deaths and unleashing tidal waves of terrorism.

      The US just violated its 1947 UN agreement to allow foreign leaders - and UN members -- access to the UN offices in NYC. Once again, the attitude is F*** international law. We are above the law.

          I’d love it if this were a catalyst to pull out of the entire Middle East. Sadly we will not.

                    It was street theater. The Iraqi government allowed the demonstrators in for a few hours -- to vent outrage and anger. Later, they were dispersed.

                    Remember, the US strike also killed an Iraqi official -- and many members of the Iraqi military. The explanation given by the US - that we struck those five bases in response to a previous attack that killed a US contractor is dubious. The bases were hundreds of miles from where the contractor was killed. Moreover those Iraqi troops had been fighting ISIS. Why attack them? It is yet another indication of the ambiguous US relationship with ISIS. Not only did we create ISIS by invading Iraq -- we have found ways to keep it going --- in order to use ISIS against Syria or whomever...

                    The scope of US lies since 2001 is breathtaking. At this stage, it's almost impossible to distinguish reality from propaganda.

                    This tell us we need to get the F*** out of the Mideast. We need to break relations with Israel AND with Saudi Arabia. If we do that - the consequences will be severe: the end of the petrodollar. But anything is better than nuclear armageddon -

                          What does Putin have to do with this? We and our ally Israel caused the crisis -- not Russia. Israel has been bombing inside Syria and Iraq for many months -- you didn't even notice. During the recent Israeli electoral campaign -- Netanyahu bombed three nations in one day, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. You didn't even notice.

                          Russia did not bomb and invade Iraq in 2002 -- we did. Get it through you stupid head -- we are the problem in the region.

                          And now things are about to get much worse - because Israel just announced it wants war. Newsweek just reported that Netanyahu is meeting with Saudi leaders to find a way to throw gas on the fire.

                          WORLD ISRAEL SAYS IT WANTS 'WAR WITH IRAN' AND IS MEETING WITH ARAB COUNTRIES TO 'ADVANCE' IT

                              NATO needs us more than we need NATO. Trump is handling that situation right.

                              There is no mess in Iran. That whole situation went according to plan.
