Is Old Joe Biden’s team going to threaten Donald Trump’s safety in order to appease Iran, or is it just a coincidence? The enraged Iranian leaders threatened to retaliate. Faiq Zidan, the President of Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council, announced that a warrant had been issued for Donald Trump’s arrest.
Iraqi News reported that Zaidan had been “mentioned” as a result of a statement by the Iraqi judiciary indicating that an arrest warrant for former U.S. President Donald Trump was issued. Yes, it is true. Trump took responsibility for the U.S. Army action but it wasn’t a confession of guilt. Soleimani was able to stop the attack.
But, the Islamic Republic has always presented Soleimani’s assassination as an unprovoked, gratuitous strike by the Great Satan. It is calling upon the “investigators of the assassination Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, chief of staff for Popular Mobilization Forces(PMF), in Iraq Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis,” and asking Zaidan, referring specifically to Trump, “Why has he not been held accountable for this terrible crime?”
It was a military operation against an antagonist power that no international law considers a crime.
Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, the Iranian parliament speaker, said Monday in Ankara Trump and his “accomplices must be tried” for the “criminal act” of killing Soleimani. Biden claimed that the crime of killing Soleimani was so obvious that international lawyers insist it is illegal.
Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’ al-Sudani, meanwhile, said Thursday, “The crime of assassinating the ‘Commanders of Victory’ and their companions represented a flagrant violation of Iraq’s territorial integrity and national sovereignty. The targeted killings of the commanders, who had a leading role in the elimination of the scourge of terrorism, is utter disrespect to bilateral agreements [signed between Baghdad and Washington].” No doubt all this is music to Merrick Garland’s ears.
Biden’s handlers are going to deliver Trump to the Iraqis to curry favor with the Iranian mullahs they tried so hard to court.
