Iran’s military mastermind just gave the US the bird

AS REPORTED BY BUSINESS INSIDER:

Iran’s military mastermind is getting defiant.

Gen. Qassem Soleimani ignored a travel ban and sanctions and flew to Russia to meet with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and President Vladimir Putin, two unnamed Western intelligence sources told Fox News.

It’s not clear what the leaders discussed at the July 24 meeting.

Soleimani is a US-designated terrorist. US Secretary of State John Kerry, as he rallies Washington support for the Iran nuclear deal, has assured American officials that Soleimani and his Quds Force would continue to face sanctions from the US Treasury even after UN sanctions are lifted under the deal, Fox reports.

Kerry told Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) on July 29 that US sanctions against Soleimani would never be lifted, according to Fox.

Soleimani reportedly traveled to Russia on a commercial Air Iran flight. He arrived on July 24, a Friday, and left on Sunday.

Fox notes the significance of his visit: “UN sanctions have not yet been lifted against Iran, and Soleimani, as head of the Iranian Quds Force is sanctioned as part of Security Council Resolution 1747. He is prohibited to travel, and any country that lets him transit or travel is defying the sanctions. (Russia is a permanent member of the Security Council and would have been aware of this restriction when meeting with him.)”

As US officials have assured Americans that money from Iran sanctions relief wouldn’t significantly affect the country’s regional activities, critics have pointed to Soleimani’s ambitions and reluctance to bow to the nuclear deal.

    I see the “GREAT DEAL” is going as expected with one of the rag head TERRORIST going to Russia for uranium to help build a nuke probably-ya think?? Kerry and OSLIMA are selling this country and Israel down the shitter!!!
    I just hope when we get a real American in the W/H he can cancel every thing that POS OSLIMA did, especially our MUSLIM TERRORIST and border jumpers problem taken care of one way or another!!!
    When they finally bring OSLIMA and KERRY up on charge’s of helping TERRORIST’S and TREASON to this country and the world, I hope I get to be on the firing squad!!! Mother F****RS need to be punished in some way–but a bullet is cheaper!!!

    HEY,DHS, NSA, FBI, CIA, DOJ, TSA, ATF, IRS, AND ANY I MISSED KISS MY BIG ASSTIBULA!!! YOU NAZI JACK BOOTED C**K S****RS!!!

      A little angry eh? Me too. And agreed.

    Well, is anyone surprised? This was a deal alright, we ultimately just gave Iran Carte Blanche to rule the world along side China and Russia. Which all agree the goal is to take us out. What I can’t understand is all these born and raised American Politicians that are helping this evil regime that are in power in Washington . What the check are they thinking? Where do they think they are going to live after it all hits the fan? Obama and the Brotherhood can go anywhere in the world (they think) but the ilk of Boehner and McConnell aren’t going anywhere. They may be millionaires , but on the world stage that isn’t that much. Is it their own arrogance that is totally blinding them to the path of destruction they have us on?

    China, Russia, Iran…………………………sounds like an “axis of evil” to me, and kerry is the new Benedict Arnold! If the Russians, Chinese and muslims don’t get Us, Our own gov’t. WILL!

    We, The People have been BETRAYED! We, The People stand ALONE!

    IRAN is making sure Russia will back them. I don’t believe Russia will ever allow Iran the power to overtake the world. Russia and China might want that glory. IRAN is doing everything and anything to prepare for their victory and they want the sanctions lifted, that’s all they want. The Nuke Deal cannot go forward, the sanctions cannot be lifted, and Iran needs to be crushed. I do not believe that OUR military is weak, that our military uses antiquated equipment….else the equipment we have put in the Middle east would not work, and cutting our forces, like Obama is doing, is leaving veterans who are trained and ready to defend America, on our own turf. TOO MANY Americas are waking up, and educating themselves about ISLAM. The world is under seige by terrorists following Islam. The end times, the mark of the beast, the tribulation, revelations, all the preaching going on, is getting through to many, but not all. There are people who no longer are willing to tolerate, Islam. They have taken their Holy War past the Middle east, and are using the INTERNET, TO INVOKE fear and rage. WW3 is on facebook, twitter and thru hacking. Predictions state masses of people will die. The Bible states the coming of an Anti Christ, and everyone will be marked, identified. The world stage is changing but there are still many many people in this world, who will never submit to the evil demon. America faces the enemy within.
