For those who still question the legality of taking out Soleimani with a drone strike.

Please read and share with any friends or family who question this under the Just War Theory or other moral or conscientious reasoning.

Zach also links to the legal reasoning behind UBL. And the often overlooked fact that Jeh Johnson was the DoD General Counsel as well.
Note in the DoD Statement, they mention that the Quds Force was a Foreign Terrorist Organization, that Soleimani had orchestrated MULTIPLE attacks on coalition bases over the last few months, and approved the attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad.

On Jan 3, 2020, the US killed a top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani and Iran retaliated with missile strikes on US bases in Iraq.

This was followed by a surge in misinformation, disinformation, #FakeNews

AFP #FactCheck debunked plenty of them. Below is a thread:
Claim: Aerial footage of a US drone strike killing a top Iranian military commander General Qassem Soleimani

Reality: Footage is actually from a military simulation video game…
Claim: Video of Iran firing rockets at a US base in Iraq.

Reality: The claim is false; the clip is from a military-themed video game called ARMA 3. #FactCheck #FakeNews #IranAttacks…

#Soleimani and others had plans to attack #Americans using Russia's K-Club missile system, which appears like an everyday shipping container.

The K-club is remote activated using satellite.

@BarackObama allowed a 35 yr lease on Florida's, Port Canaveral by shipping Co. Gulftainer. A company owned the brother of Saddam Hussein's rouge Nuclear Scientist, and declared enemy of America.
Gulftainer is partners with Russias weapon CO that makes the K-club

General Hajizadeh, commander of IRGC’s Aerospace Force: “During the missile attack against the US military sites in the Ain Al-Asad airbase, we initiated a cyber attack that deactivated their jet fighters’ and drones’ aviation systems.”
IRGC commander, General Hajizade: “We were expecting the US to retaliate and we were ready to fight back. And naturally our next moves were going to be harsher.”
IRGC commander, General Hajizadeh: ‘We hit the US airbase with 13 missiles but we had 100’s of missiles ready to shoot.’

In the hours following the Iranian missile attack on two coalition military bases in Iraq on January 7th, a variety of claims circulated on Twitter regarding casualty count.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote To study the claims, we downloaded tweets containing #IranAttacks, #IranvsUSA, or Iran and looked for tweets containing "casualties", "dead", or "killed" with a number within the previous 35 characters. The most common numbers were 0, 20, 30, and 80.
@ZellaQuixote The "0 casualties" and "20 casualties claims spread first, beginning shortly before 4 PM PST. The "30 casualties claim" started going viral shortly after 5 PM, and the "80 casualties" version took off around 21:30. Who tweeted which number?

Trump says "all is well" after Iranian strikes on bases hosting U.S. troops
This line appears to be a number comm in retrospect now. i.e. All is well because all is 9. Which yes, that makes sense... I'll explain… #IranAttacks #Qanon #IranWar
I cover number comms all the time & the most consistent ones are 6, 9, and 17. Cult 6, flipped cult 9, and super classified 17. The way it works when written is the statement has a specific meaning when paired with the number comm explains the "why"
So Trump was stating to relevant parties that Iran has flipped - A question of "when" is interesting. #Soleimani needed to go and he was a ring wearing top cultist as best I can tell. Perhaps tho Iran gave up his head and this has all been theater?

PSA- if you already know this good but if you don't...

You've probably heard Trump supporters (and fox news) saying over and over again that Obama gave Iran billions of dollars... 1
In fact, Republican senators and Trump himself are saying that the missiles fires at our troops last night were paid for with "American tax payer money that was giving to them by Obama."

This is utterly false. Here is what happened.

Back in the 80's Iran was under sanctions and it was illegal to sell them weapons. Reagan (Republican) was president. In S. America there was a militia group called The Contras. The Contras were trying to overthrow a socialist government that Republicans did not like.

Donald Trump’s day so far:

- Slurs his way through lifeless, confused, Adderall-laced speech about #IranAttacks
- Sounds half dead
- Gives away classified intel
- #IvotedforHillaryClinton
- Fuck Trump, fuck his supporters
- Trump is going to prison
- It’s still only noon
Donald Trump sniffs and slurs his way through lifeless, confused, incoherent Iran speech…

#NEW: NPR Moscow correspondent reporting rn that Jordan has tweeted that the #Ukraine flight was brought down by a missile. Tangential to this, #Zelensky is in Jordan and reportedly posting on Facebook that a criminal investigation has not been ruled out.
No independent corroboration that this #UkraineAirlines crash is anything other than a tech disaster, but the timing has raised questions.
The flight was reportedly on fire and then exploded into a fireball. None of the 176 survived.
These details are not inconsiderable under the current circumstances. Also NPR reported this flight was not one of the 737's under review.

Consider this:

During the invasion of Iraq, Saddam fired scores of SCUD missiles at Coalition Forces.

Many of them were successfully intercepted by our missile defense.

Yet not one interceptor missile was fired during the #IranAttacks.


It’s pretty obvious.

How could Iran claim their response was “proportional”, if their missiles were shot down?

It’s likely that Iran notified Iraq of its intent to attack #AlAsad as a measured response, and US officials (most certainly notified by Iraq), let it happen.
Once again, our forces have been placed in harms way—and used as pawns—to correct Trump’s diplomatic incompetence.

But make no mistake— the threat is nowhere near over.

This was just theater of an official nature. The Iranian military was never our concern.

It’s their proxies.

The United States military was attacked by #Iran. You would think that the Command in Chief would take a few minutes during the evening to speak to the American people. But that would be asking too much. You'll have to wait until after he watches Fox & Friends the next morning.
On the other hand, Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei is currently addressing his nation. #Iran #IranAttacks #IranWar
Ayatollah Khamenei is not giving a prepared speech. He's just talking casually to his audience about his thoughts on everything that has developed.

Iranian media is reporting that a Ukrainian Airlines Boeing 737 passenger plane with 180 people on board just crashed due to technical problems as it departed Tehran for Kiev. If that is true, is it connected to the 5.0 earthquake that just took place? #Iran
Here is the FlightRadar24 info on the Ukrainian passenger jet that crashed shortly after takeoff. My question is... why was a plane with 180 passengers taking off from Tehran in the midst of the chaos? And what were the "technical difficulties" that caused it to crash?
Latest word is that Iranian air defense systems may have accidentally shot down the Ukrainian plane. Still being investigated. And, I'm still wondering why commercial flights were being allowed to take off.

1. 15 total missiles. 10 hit one base (Al-Assad), 1 near Erbil and the rest were duds. The missiles that hit sound like they were largely inconsequential.

Iran has the capability to hit us in Iraq with precision... but they didn’t.con’t
#WarWithIran #NoWarWithlran #IranAttacks
2. `They could have targeted another base in Iraq that’s closer and has more US troops (Balad), but they didn’t. As of now it looks like a face saving symbolic attack.

It’s surprising as it’s a radical change from their usual doctrine... #NoWarWithIran #WarWithIran #Iran
3. They never use their regular military and rely on proxy. This might say more on the psychological effect the death of Soleimani has had inside Iran. The regime is acting out of weakness. The opposition within Iran and Iraq feel strengthened. Cont #NoWarWithlran #Iran

Pentagon says no Americans were killed in #IranAttacks.
Maybe that changes, maybe it doesn't. But as of now, no American casualties.
Looks like the CENTCOM count is 15 ballistic missiles.

10 targeted Al-Assad Air Base, 1 at Erbil and 4 failed.

Don't say "don't make this about politics."

We are on the brink of war BECAUSE of politics.

Because Trump hated Barack Obama and tore up the US-Iran nuclear peace deal.

Because Trump chose to risk war with an assassination to distract from impeachment. 1/ #IranAttacks
Because political cowards put their careers first and bowed to and carried water for a man who they KNEW was unfit, erratic, and unstable.

Focus on the people now in harm's way, yes.

But don't say, "Don't make this about politics." They are in harm's way BECAUSE of politics. 2/
AND bc of a national news media that was so f***ing determined to prove how "objective" & "balanced" they are, they harped on "emails!" relentlessly to try to equalize Trump's extreme inexperience & unfitness with Hillary's high qualifications & thoughtfulness. You all knew, too.
