 What kind of Middle East will the United States face after the targeted assassination?


At the same time, the death of the Iraqi Shiite militia peoples mobilization force deputy leader muhandis, as well as the other two senior Lebanese Hezbollah officials.

In this way, the United States suddenly offended Iran, Iraq and Lebanon, as well as the vast Shiite population in the Middle East. As a result, the relationship between the United States and Iraq has deteriorated rapidly, and many other countries have been involved.

How has the situation in the Middle East changed in the past three days?

Mourning the Iranian people in Sulaimani

Mourning

Sulaimani has a very high reputation and status in Iran. He is a strong competitor of the next president and an anti American hero in the hearts of the people.

On the day of the incident, after the news of Sulaimanis death came back to China, many Iranians fell into grief. In the live broadcast of the announcement of the death, the military spokesman couldnt help crying, the host tearfully broadcast the news, and then the two held their heads for comfort.

On January 4, Iranian President Mahmoud Rouhani came to Sulaimanis home to express condolences. When he saw Sulaimanis two daughters, they were in black, obviously in distress. One of the daughters asked him, when friends bleed, my father will avenge them, and now who will avenge my fathers blood?

Ruhani then replied, everyone will avenge your father, you dont have to worry about it. Americans dont realize how serious a mistake they have made. They will bear the consequences for this not only today, but for years to come.

On January 5, Sulaimanis body arrived in awash, Iran from Iraq. Tens of thousands of people went to the streets to mourn. The team was more than 30 kilometers long. The body then arrived in Tehran, the capital, where a large number of people took to the streets again to see it off.

A senior commander of Irans Revolutionary Guard said that this is the biggest strategic mistake made by the United States. Iran has targeted about 35 U.S. targets in the Middle East, as well as the Israeli capital within the scope of the attack.

In response to such a severe situation, the United States immediately deployed. Twelve hours after the incident, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq issued a warning to all U.S. citizens to leave Iraq. In the United States, Washington, New York, Los Angeles and other cities are on high alert.

At the same time, the United States announced that it would send 3000 more soldiers to the Middle East, and they would deploy in the Middle East for about 60 days. According to US media reports, the US Navys Fifth Fleet Patriot missiles are on alert.

Facing the threat warning from Iran, President trump said the next day: the United States has locked 52 Iranian military and cultural sites. If Iran attacks any American or American assets, the United States will launch a rapid and fierce attack on these Iranian targets.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused trump of launching a provocative campaign to further put the lives of U.S. soldiers, diplomats and others at risk.

To avoid war, she said Congress would introduce a war power resolution this week to limit Trumps military actions against Iran.

In recent days, the American people have fallen into confusion and panic. The hot topic on social media is is the third world war about to break out? How to escape the conscription of the government?

On the streets, more than 70 cities in the United States have witnessed demonstrations and anti war rallies, large and small.

American netizens comment: I swipe it before I go to sleep, only to find that there was a hot search in the Third World War (screaming in confusion)

Withdraw troops

For the Iraqi people, the American army is reckless in its territory, and almost regards the Iraqi government as nothing, which once again ignites peoples anger.

What makes Iraqis even more angry is that after the death of the deputy leader of the peoples mobilization force, the United States not only did not stop, but also launched an air strike against the camp of the organization that night, which resulted in six deaths and three serious injuries.

On January 4, I dont know which force launched three successive attacks on the United States. That night, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq (also known as the green zone) was attacked by two rockets, and then the U.S. military base in the north of Baghdad and the central base of Baghdad were also attacked by rockets.

On 5 January, three more rockets fell into the green zone and three into a base in central Baghdad.

Two days of air strikes damaged some U.S. military facilities, injuring 11 local people, but not the U.S. military.

The two attacks have not been claimed by organizations or individuals. Local media analysis, the attack may be the peoples mobilization force branch organization Hezbollah brigade for.

Two months ago, the group launched 11 attacks on US bases, killing a US contractor in an air strike on December 27, 2019.

On December 29, the United States launched air strikes on several camps of Hezbollah brigade on the ground of retaliation, causing 25 deaths and 55 injuries. Then angry Iraqi protesters stormed and torched the U.S. Embassy in Iraq on the eve of the new year.

With regard to the Iraqi government and parliament, on January 5, the parliament voted to adopt a major decision, calling on the government to put an end to the presence of all foreign troops on Iraqi territory, that is, to ask the United States to withdraw its troops.

At the same time, the Iraqi government summoned the U.S. ambassador to Iraq to denounce the recent U.S. air strikes in Iraq, including the U.S. air raid assassination.

Upon hearing the news, trump said that the U.S. military will not leave Iraq. Unless Iraq repays billions of dollars in protection fees, there will be very big sanctions.

Counterattack

Later than the vote of the Iraqi parliament, Iran also made the first substantive counterattack measures on January 5.

On the evening of the same day, the Iranian government issued a statement saying that Iran would suspend the implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement and lift all restrictions.

Specifically, the statement said that Iran has entered the fifth stage of suspending the implementation of Irans nuclear agreement, that is, it has abandoned the last limit on the number of centrifuges. In the future, Iran will continue to push forward its nuclear program according to the technical requirements, and will not be subject to any restrictions (including enrichment capacity, percentage of enrichment, quantity of concentrated substances and research and development).

This Iran nuclear agreement is the starting point of a new round of conflict between the United States and Iran in recent years. In July 2015, Iran reached a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue with the six countries on the Iranian nuclear issue (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany). Under the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community would lift sanctions against Iran.

As a result, in May 2018, the United States unilaterally announced its withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement and added a series of severe sanctions against Iran. As a counter measure, since May 2019, Iran has suspended part of the terms of the Iranian nuclear agreement in stages.

It can be seen that Irans current counter attack measures are very restrained. At the end of the statement, it reiterated its long-standing appeal to the international community: if sanctions are lifted in the future and Irans interests are satisfied, then Iran will be ready to resume the implementation of the Iran nuclear agreement.

Irans performance is in line with the expectations of the international community. Because so far, in addition to Israels praise of the swift, forceful and decisive action of the United States, China, Russia, Germany, France, Britain, Japan and other countries, as well as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Syria and other Middle East countries, are calling on all parties to exercise restraint and avoid the escalation of events.

U.N. Secretary General Guterres also said he was deeply worried about the current situation, urging leaders to exercise maximum restraint and the world cannot afford another Gulf War.

However, judging from the great grief of the Iranian people, it is obvious that the counter attack measures of the Iranian government cannot be stopped, or it will be difficult to explain to the people.

More worryingly, there are two avenging forces beyond the control of Iranian officials.

One force is the Shiite organizations in other countries in the Middle East, such as the Bahraini Shiite militia except Iraq, the Hussein armed forces in Yemen, Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, etc. they may launch attacks on American soldiers and businessmen in the Middle East.

The other is Sulaimanis loyal followers. In a live TV broadcast on January 5, a host said: there are 80 million people in Iran. If each of them gives us a dollar, we will have 80 million dollars, so we can use this money to reward those American murderers.

As a spokesman for Chinas foreign ministry said, power politics is unpopular and unsustainable. The U.S. military risk-taking in Japan violates the basic norms of international relations and aggravates regional tensions and turmoil. China has always opposed the use of force in international relations. There is no way out for military means, and extreme pressure cannot work.

The abuse of force can only backfire.
