U.S. airstrikes have taken out yet another top Iranian terrorist leader.
Gen. Siamand Mashhadani, a general with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, was reportedly among those killed on March 11 in a U.S. attack on terrorist warehouses in Iraq.
Mashhadani was a top commander in the brutal Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guard–the same force that was headed by Qasem Soleimani.
Soleimani was, of course, killed in Baghdad by the United States on January 3 in a mission ordered by President Trump himself.
Iran had long exploited and enjoyed a weak foreign policy of “containment” from the United States.
Despite the Islamist dictatorship frequently threatening the United States, the U.S. government under Barack Obama was quick to come to the bargaining table.
Most notably, the “Iran Deal” of 2014 resulted in billions of dollars in pallets of cash being sent to Tehran–without any real concessions from the dictatorship.
Under President Trump, there’s been an abrupt shift. Iran’s economy has collapsed due to crippling sanctions by the United States–and their military power has been decimated by the killing of Soleimani.
