Pentagon: We have no evidence of Suleimani’s preparations for attacks on US embassies

46

The Pentagon once again makes it clear that there is information inconsistency in the US administration. Recall that a day after the elimination of Iranian General Kassem Suleimani, Donald Trump literally announced the following: “This was done since Suleimani was preparing attacks on American embassies in different countries.” Trump’s speech included words about Iran’s preparations for attacks on the “4 US diplomatic missions.”


The US Department of Defense, a few days after Trump's statements, says that they did not have any data on Kassem Suleimani’s preparations for attacks on US embassies.

US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper:

We have no evidence that Iran was preparing attacks on our four embassies. At least I have not seen any such evidence yet.

Moreover, Esper, realizing that such words can cause Trump's anger, added that he still shares the president’s words.

From the statement of the head of the Pentagon:

US embassies, of course, are a prime factor in the US presence in the region. Therefore, of course, I share the president’s words that they can attack our diplomatic missions in the Middle East.

As you can see, in these statements, causal relationships are lost. After all, the phrases “planned attacks on 4 embassies” and “may attack our embassies” (especially after the US actions against the same Suleimani) have different semantic meaning.

So far, everything fits into the typical American manner of using force to accuse an opponent without providing at least some evidence. A striking example from the relatively recent past is the invasion of Iraq after Secretary of State Powell demonstrated the famous test tube with white powder. Chemical weapons not found in Iraq, and almost 17 years after the invasion.

                The foundation of UNESCO's cultural work is the promotion of cultural diversity based on human relationships. This approach was reaffirmed in 2001 with the adoption of the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity. From the protection of the world cultural and natural heritage, which is of value to all mankind, the organization moved to the protection of various forms of intangible cultural heritage, masterpieces of oral creativity [Yu. nineteen]. Another moment in UNESCO’s work in the field of culture is the preservation of cultural sites in the zone of armed conflict, the basis of this area of ​​activity is the 19 Hague Convention [Yu. twenty].

    Proof is needed when you play by international rules. America has long been on everything and everyone from the high bell tower. During the Cold War, they had a rival to the USSR. Now they have no competitors. Russia can only express "deep concern" about Europe and other nudging ones, there is no need to speak at all.

    When you read Trump on Twitter, or listen to on TV, it seems that the old president has already visited insanity.
    Mutually exclusive statements. Ignorance of the situation. I do not care about what is really happening in the world.
    He has one goal - re-election this year ...
    Democrats recently accused Trump of being lenient with the withdrawal of troops from Syria.
    He immediately said that no one was leaving anywhere, and the United States would protect Syrian oil from bad terrorists, which he, Trump, very much loves ...
    Some babble of a defective child.
    With Suleymani - the same situation. Ratings - Above All!
    But in connection with the assassination of the Al-Quds commander with ratings, Trump for some reason did not work out.
    Miscalculated with ratings. They are falling. And to fight for a long time is scary.
    Ratings after all ... Can completely fall ...

    A striking example from the relatively recent past is the invasion of Iraq after Secretary of State Powell demonstrated the famous test tube with white powder. No chemical weapons were found in Iraq even almost 17 years after the invasion.
    **********************************************************************************
    Then they said there that they found something there.
    Not biological, but some remnants of chemical weapons (old rusty ammunition).


    And also Sadam, like a bad one, for:

    He ran terrorist camps for Palestinians, paid $ 25 to the family of every Palestinian who blew up in Israel: “Money from Saddam Hussein ... was given to the families of suicide bombers and people affected by the intifada, with the full support of Arafat and other high-ranking PA officials. [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] The Guardian writes that Saddam's money was distributed on a "sliding scale": $ 25,000 to families of suicide bombers, $ 10,000 to families of militants killed in the resistance to Israel, $ 1,000 when injured in battle, and $ 5,000 to those Palestinians whose homes were destroyed. According to a spokesman for Hussein, as of March 2003, he had allocated 12,500,000 US dollars to the families of the "shahids" and others who suffered at the hands of the Israelis. [47]

    For such money, there would have to be someone explode every day ...
    Why would terrorists need Sadam, why would he support them,
    if he was king so local?

    Well, like, he used chemical weapons against civilians, although as it turned out later,
    it wasn’t - it was an Iranian response to the Iraqi army, but it hurt civilians as well.

    There was no data, and there is no, but "they (the Iranians) can attack" - the logic of the American-reinforced concrete and does not even require explanation. Wanted - killed and it does not matter whether there was a threat or not, and the whole world is in tension. These frostbitten with a "grenade" just need to periodically show two of theirs, otherwise it will not end well.

    Inconsistency has nothing to do with it. The deliberate negligence and dismissive tone of the comments were not chosen by chance. The USA shows everyone that they will kill anyone they want. At the same time, they will not even complicate themselves by writing a smooth excuse. The goal is bullying. Leaders of all countries, special services and other organizations must realize that they can all be killed by the United States at any time, that’s all.

    Everything fits into the struggle of elites within the United States. Powell with his test tube is completely out of place here. Democrats are trying to launch trump impeachment, so I use every opportunity to lower his rating. The order to liquidate Suleymani is his direct order, and the Pentagon translates arrows just in case.

    "The complete chronology of the crash of the Ukrainian plane in Iran was published"
    from the article
    "In the first three minutes, the liner gained an altitude of 2,4 kilometers and all this time was reflected on the radars. After a few minutes, the electronic systems stopped working, and the aircraft transmitted the last signal. Within a few seconds, an Iranian air defense missile hit the plane, it caught fire, then the liner was hit by another missile, which, according to The New York Times, was fired from the country's secret military bases. "
    The Iranians initially talked about seconds to make a decision.
    It turns out that there was originally a glitch on the plane ?, which led to the tragedy.
