The US and Iran in Iraq: Protestors take over the streets, demanding government reforms “or else”…

Jeanine Antoinette Hennis-Plasschaert, a Dutch diplomat serving as Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations assistance mission in Iraq since November 2018, visited the Grand Ayatollah Sistani at his home in Najaf. A few days later, Thursday the 14th at 20:00 pm, IRGC-Quds brigade commander Qassem Soleimani landed at Najaf airport and visited Sayyed Sistani to discuss his requests for a solution to the unrest in the country. Soleimani returned to Baghdad the same evening with clear answers: reforms are inevitable within a specific time-table, and the US and Iran should stop intervening because protestors are for the most part sincere and have justified demands.

Revanche-Piraterie im Persischen Golf: Irans Regierung spielt der internationalen Kriegslobby direkt in die Hände

Die Idee zur Kaperung des unter britischer Flagge fahrenden Tankers „Stena Impero“ durch die iranischen „Revolutionsgarden“ könnte von U.S.-Kriegslobbyist John Bolton selbst sein. Der Iran spielt mit diesem Akt der Piraterie, wieder einmal, direkt den rechtsextremen Verrückten in der internationalen Kriegslobby in die Hände, vorneweg denen in der U.S.-Regierung und in der in Israel immer noch herrschenden Gang von Benjamin Netanyahu.

IRGC commander: Drone Attack Message to US, Iran Could Down P8 Aircraft with 35 aboard

At the early hours of Thursday, the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) air force shot down an American spy drone, identified as RQ-4 Global Hawk, that had violated Iranian airspace in the Kuh Mubarak (Mubarak Mountain) region located at Hormuzgan province, south of the country, the IRGC’s public relations department said in a statement.

RQ-4 typically flies at a high altitude to conduct reconnaissance missions.

IRGC Aerospace Force Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said “the Americans ignored our warnings in addition to the fact that at the moment that the UAV was intercepted, another US military stealth aircraft dubbed P-8 was flying next to it with 35 personnel on board. We could have targeted that too, but we refrained from doing that“.
