Friday morning the United States carried out a targeted airstrike on a particular plane the Baghdad airport. This drone killed eight Middle Eastern military figures including Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani.
The responses to these attacks are as intense as might be expected. The nation of Iran took off three days to grieve. Yesterday the coffins were carried in the streets to the funerals. Who knows what will happen tomorrow. Retaliation is certainly on the menu and it will probably be served cold, meaning attacks will occur when they are least expected and in the most hurtful manner possible.
The decision to make the attack was Donald Trump’s. Reports state that he met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at Mar-a-Lago late Sunday afternoon. According to Senator Lindsey Graham he was also briefed about the potential operation. We have no idea who else might have been in on the plan.
Surprisingly Congress was kept out of the loop. Had this event this been an emergency, The Gang of Eight, as they are called, should have been notified, and if not, then the whole Congress should have voted on the action to be taken. The U.S. President may have authority over the military but he or she doesn’t have the power to make war. This attack is easily viewed as the first steps to international warfare.
The morning after the assassination, Trump is quoted as saying “We took action last night to stop a war,” He added “We did not take action to start a war.” The president claims that Soleimani was planning to kill Americans and harm diplomats, but no proof has yet been offered. Furthermore the president has threatened to target 52 Iranian sites if Tehran retaliates. The 52 stands for the 52 American hostages that Iran took in 1979. Iran has replied that Trump “a terrorist in s suit.”
So as the world struggles to prepare itself for the inevitable aftershocks of this event, let’s take a closer look at Qasem Soleimani, the target of this horrible attack. The killing was bad act because it was not authorized. Let be recalled that as the commander of the CUDS force, Soleimani is accountable for the deaths of hundreds of Americans. He is clearly a designated terrorist.
Wikipedia tells us that Soleimani was born into a destitute family. He was one of nine children and took work in construction to pay off a debt his father owed. Soleimani joined the Revolutionary Guard and advanced rapidly through the ranks. He was wounded in battle several times and was declared a living martyr. In the late nineties Soleimani was given the rank of Major General by Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader.
Qasem Soleimani was born on a Monday in the zodiac sign of Pisces. The Moon is the ruler of Monday and Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. Simply on the basis of the energies within Soleimani’s #24 MON PIS signature, he was not destined to be an evil figure. Still any force in the Universe can be misused. Often decent motives are twisted by one’s cultural or personal beliefs. That is the problem of extremist devotees.
The Moon is the ruler of Soleimani’s INNER nature. Usually this influence creates an individual whose attentive nature would be noticed and appreciated by many. There is often a nurturing side to the character, but the emotions of a Moon person are not consistent. They generally have protective feelings regarding their family, home or country.
Pisces is an enigmatic Sun Sign. It’s symbol depicts two fish swimming in opposite directions, indicating that some Pisces are extremely spiritual and others not at all. There are Pisceans whose behavior might not be as they appear. Pisces employment can include any roles that are sensitive or inspired. They often view themselves as victims or saviors, some times as both in one lifetime as with this internationally known figure.
Trump has turned Soleimani into a saint
and given Iran justification to attack Americans
anywhere in the world.
