On Friday, President Trump tweeted an explanation of why Iran’s number one general was killed in a U.S. airstrike outside of the Baghdad Airport. Our Commander in Chief wrote:

General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number ….of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), defended President Donald Trump’s decision to kill Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani.

In a tweet, Rubio blasted the media for their inaccurate description of the reason for our military’s decision to take out Iran’s evil general. Rubio explained that Soleimani was attempting to take control of Iraq and use it as a platform for future attacks on the United States.

In a series of tweets, Hussain Abdul-Hussain, a writer for Kuwaiti Daily sets the record straight on a campaign of misinformation that’s being promoted by anti-Trump sources like the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Abdul-Hussain begins by explaining how the New York Times and the Washington Post are either “so misinformed (either on purpose or because of incompetence)” that their readers might believe the Iraqi State has officially voted for ejecting US forces from Iraq (because of Trump’s miscalculated move to kill Soleimani).”

Abdul Hussain explains that what the mainstream media is telling you is not really what happened, “What happened is different.” He explains that in his letter to Parliament, Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi argues that US troops “exist in Iraq, not based on a treaty ratified by Parliament, but on 2 letters from past cabinets to the UN. Hence, Parliament has no role in ejection.”

The Kuwaiti Daily writer explains:

Iraqi PM’s trying to trade disarming Shia militias for limiting scope of US troops. He wrote: “Whoever wants to become a political power, has to surrender arms, join armed forces, and forgo any political allegiance (i.e. to Iran) other than to military and commander-in-chief.”

Iraq parliament barely had a quorum for session on ejecting US troops. Sunni and Kurdish blocs boycotted the session (thus taking America’s side over Iran), and thus quorum was 170 of 328 (half + 4, just like Hezbollah designated a PM in Lebanese parliament with half + The text Iraqi Parliament voted on was not a legislation, but a non-binding resolution.

To deflect Iranian anger, Abdul-Mahdi said US troops will leave, according to timetable. Troops of Assad dynasty occupied Lebanon for 29 years, with Assad and Lebanese saying withdrawal on its way, but tied to timetable. In Mid Eastern countries, timetables mean indefinitely.

In his letter to Parliament, Abdul-Mahdi clearly states that Iraqi interest is to maintain neutrality between America and Iran, and that if Iraq antagonizes America, it risks losing its international status (and implicitly oil revenue, just like Iran).

Abdul-Hussain blasts the New York Times, calling them even more “pro-Iran” than the Washington Post, pointing out how the New York Times grossly exaggerated numbers of attendees at the funeral for Iran’s number one general Qassem Soleimani.

NYT is, by far, much more pro-Iran than Wash Post. The post reported that “tens of thousands” mourned Soleimani in Ahwaz. NYT made the number of mourners “hundreds of thousands.”

The Kuwaiti Daily reporter explains that the “Bottom line” is that the Iraqi parliament vote was simply a “face-saving measure.” He explains, ” Iran is in a bind: If it retaliates without claiming its attack, it does not count as revenge for Soleimani. If Iran claims the attack, regime risks further wrath, in a country whose economy is in free fall”

Abdul-Hussain wraps up by explaining how the killing of Soleimani by US airstrikes won’t change the terror tactics used by Iran against their enemies, but his death will make the Iranian proxy war “much weaker.”

The most probable outcome of #Soleimani’s killing is more of the same: Low-intensity Iranian warfare against America, Iran never engaging in direct war, but maintaining her proxy war, fighting America to the last Arab. But with Soleimani out, Iranian proxy war will be much weaker

The Kuwaiti Daily reporter added 4 additional tweets for clarification that Iraqi’s did NOT vote to expel US troops, and that Iraqi’s continue to rally in the streets against those in Parliament who are pro-Iranian and who would like to expel US troops:

Abdul-Hussain tweeted a very important video showing a member of the Iraqi parliament warning his fellow lawmakers that ejecting US troops means Iraq loses its oil revenue, causing their economy to collapse.

Two hours ago, Abdul-Hussain added MSNBC to his list of fake news propagandists:
