Network (APRN) strongly condemns the assassination of Iranian general Qassem
Suleimani. General Suleimani was assassinated via US drone strike. The killing
of Suleimani fueled another imperialist aggression of US in Western Asia.
Iraqi Prime Minister Adil
Abdul-Mahdi revealed on Sunday that Suleimani was on a peace mission to
de-escalate the tension involving US and Saudi Arabia. Abdul-Mahdi’s expose
completely belies the claims of US President Donald Trump that they took a
“defensive action” and “intelligence-based assessment” versus further planned
attacks of Iran. The Prime Minister added that Trump is aware of Soleimani’s
diplomatic mission in Baghdad.
The Network also insists
that the recent attack in Iran is a maneuver to divert public attention from his
pending impeachment trial by the House. Donald Trump is currently facing
impeachment complaint for the abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Trump
administration is desperately gathering support from monopoly capitalists,
especially the military industrial complex amid of growing discontent among the
American people due to continuing crisis, joblessness, and poverty that
triggers growing discontent among the American people.
The APRN also supports the
action of Iraqi Parliament to dismantle military bases of the United States in
Iraq. The action will be served as justice for Iraqi people as they have been
longing for self-determination and peace.
The APRN joins the Iranian
people and with various organizations on condemning the act of terrorism
perpetrated by the United States. The Network also calls for unity to stop the
military aggression of US around the world. Donald Trump must be held
accountable for committing war crimes against the humanity.
