Che Guevara, Milosevic, Suleymani: Americans eliminate leaders, but do not win wars


Donald Trump is a good businessman, but a bad historian. He still believes that if you remove a political or military leader, you can ensure victory - over a country, people, ideology or radical organization. In fact, this is not at all true.


The recent elimination of Kassem Suleimani was just another episode of this kind in American foreign policy strategy. Washington has resorted to the practice of organizing political killings for a very long time. If the American elite did not spare their own presidents like Lincoln or Kennedy, then what about the leaders and ideologists of hostile states or political movements.

Back in 1967, the Americans organized the assassination of Ernesto Che Guevara, who at that time enjoyed worldwide fame and the love of millions of people from the Caribbean to the Middle Kingdom. Did this murder help the Americans defeat the communist ideology and its spread even in Latin America? Not. The number of rebel groups in Peru and Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia, Mexico and El Salvador only increased. The left and now have a very strong position in Latin America, and Che Guevara has long become an icon of revolutionaries in all parts of the world.

The elimination of the Islamist leaders Osama bin Laden, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and many others also did not affect the activity of the terrorist groups subordinate to them. For example, after bin Laden’s death, the structures he created only grew, spreading influence to new regions - Southeast Asia, West and Central Africa. Al-Baghdadi was completely "eliminated" many times - for the last time already at the moment when ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) was actually defeated in the SAR by the Syrian army with the active assistance of the Russian Air Force.

The murder of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and the execution of Saddam Hussein in Iraq also did not contribute to peace. Moreover, Libya turned into a field of chaos and eternal warfare, similar to Afghanistan, a flood of refugees poured into Europe, and Iraq fell under the strong influence of neighboring Iran, which was ruled out under the same Saddam.

Therefore, the assassination of Iranian general Kassem Suleimani is unlikely to help the United States defeat Iran or even reduce its influence in the region. Moreover, Kassem Suleimani was neither Che Guevara, nor even bin Laden. He was an influential, but quite ordinary Iranian general, as it were now both the Western and domestic media did not try to imagine him almost the shadow leader of the entire Shiite world, overshadowing even the figure of Ayatollah Khamenei.

Sulejmani at the head of Al-Quds has replaced a new general, and Iran’s position in the Middle East will only strengthen. Indeed, the degree of hatred of the Americans has grown significantly, including in the same Iraq. Still - along with Suleymani, Iraqi citizens from the Popular Mobilization Force also died as a result of the American strike.

Donald Trump, like many of his predecessors, argues from the typical point of view of an American businessman - a gangster: if there is no person, there is no problem. In fact, in world politics such a principle does not work very well, especially if we are talking about people of a fundamentally different warehouse. For any ideological person, whether it be a communist, Islamist or fascist, his own life is much less valuable than for a western man in the street - a consumer with his hedonistic cult.

Suleimani, Che Guevara, Milosevic, Gaddafi - they were all so different people, many of them were far from ascetics, but still they had values ​​that were incomparably higher than their own self-preservation. Trump does not understand this, how not to understand this and many other American presidents who ruled before him, and not understand those who will replace Donald in the White House.

The deceased charismatic leaders of states and political movements become idols, symbols for their supporters. And even the dead, they continue to work on their ideology, continuing to attract more and more associates. Here is a typical example: back in 1972, almost 50 years ago, a Turkish soldier executed the young revolutionary communist Deniz Gezmish. Today, his portraits are on all May Day demonstrations in Turkey, he is an idol for young people born 20-30 years after his death.

Therefore, Kassem Suleimani will turn into a symbol of resistance to American influence in the Middle East, will become such a “commandant Che” of the Shiite world. In fact, the Americans with their own hands created Iran a new national hero, whose death can only become an impetus to aggravate the conflict between the United States and Iran, and not even so much by Iran, as by numerous Shiite radical forces, which even more than official Tehran, today are eager to avenge the deceased commander of Al-Quds.

      But the truth is that the US - more often than not “buy” leaders than they eliminate them ... and succeed quite well in this. ALL listed eliminated - just ... statistical error. Well, Ben Frankincense is just a horror story created, nourished and used by them.

        ... USA - more often than not "buy" leaders ...

        This phrase itself contains a contradiction.
        The leader (true leader) it is impossible to buy.
        All listed in the title are an example.

              Actually, "politics is a concentrated expression of the economy." Without an economy, there is no political (including military) influence.
              China already has the world's first economy. He is therefore a superpower. And the United States cannot destroy China without dying on its own. The rest can, but China is gone.

    In principle, I do not agree with the author. In my opinion, the author does not quite understand exactly what goals the Americans pursued in the case of each specific murder, in particular, the author writes:
    “The murder of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and the execution of Saddam Hussein in Iraq also did not contribute to pacification. Moreover, Libya turned into a field of chaos and eternal war like Afghanistan, a flood of refugees poured into Europe, and Iraq fell under the strong influence of neighboring Iran, which the same Saddam was excluded. "
    However, in my opinion, by killing Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the Americans were just trying not to pacify anyone, but to create chaos and, in particular, the same flow of refugees to Europe.
    These killings were a means, the goal was to create problems primarily in Europe and Russia.
    And here we must admit - they have reached their goal.

      A small clarification: the United States fought and will fight with ALL who disagree with their leadership and pose a threat to their business! So far, China did not pose a threat to their business and the states did not pay attention to them. When Khomeini wiped them out of Iran, Iran became bad, and Khomeini equally hated communism. So the Americans were and will be indifferent over everything that does not threaten their interests

    What do you mean by the word terrorist? Rid the world of Al Baghdadi, is that terror? Crank Suleimani was killed, so maybe they saved Iran - the Persians are not happy with the war in Gaza and Syria

    1. Baghdadi was created and helped, and after tens of thousands of victims and its defeat, they killed him.
    2. How does killing Suleimani bring salvation to Iran?
