    Actually, no, they weren't. There aren't any "Democrats" in Iraq. There are only Sunni's and Shia. Those statements were made by Sunni's, who are our allies.

    It was the Iraqi PM that made those statements. This is what happens when you get all your news from the radio, social media, and corporate news sources.

    Here is the straight translation, right from Iraq the night it happened (translator Mustafa Salim);

    Iraqi PM reveals Soleimani was on peace mission when assassinated, exploding Trump’s lie of ‘imminent attacks’
    Iraqi PM reveals Soleimani was on peace mission when assassinated, exploding Trump’s lie of ‘imminent attacks’
    The Trump administration claimed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was planning “imminent attacks” on US interests when it assassinated him. That lie was just destroyed, but not before countless corporate media outlets transmitted it to the public.
    By Max Blumenthal

    “I received a phone call from @realDonaldTrump when the embassy protests ended thanking the government efforts and asked Iraq to play the mediator's role between US and Iran” Iraqi PM said.

    “But at the same time American helicopters and drones were flying without the approval of Iraq, and we refused the request of bringing more soldiers to US embassy and bases” iraqi PM said.

    “I was supposed to meet Soleimani at the morning the day he was killed, he came to deliver me a message from Iran responding to the message we delivered from Saudi to Iran” Iraqi PM said."



    The message line is very long . . . . go read it if you are interested. I am sure you're not. You like War Propaganda and lies it seems.

    Ahhh ... one of those! How man countries have we attacked? How many drone bombings? How many "targeted killings"? How many undeclared wars?

    But go ahead, ostrich up. Hide behind the orange turd and pretend you're not completely, cowardly, full of shit.

    Did you believe the "weapons of mass destruction" fable too?

    The Smoking Gun in the Soleimani Assassination

    "Moreover, the entire narrative of the Trump administration was undermined by Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdelmahdi, who told Parliament on Jan. 5 when he asked its members to kick out the US military, that he had personally invited Soleimani to Baghdad as part of a back-channel set of negotiations between Saudi Arabia and Iran aimed at cooling down tensions between the two.

    "Soleimani did not sneak into Iraq on a covert mission.

    "He flew on a commercial jet and went through passport control with his diplomatic passport."

    When did Sunnis become "our allies" in Iraq?

    Adil Abdul-Mahdi - Wikipedia

    "Abdul-Mahdi is a former member of the powerful Shi'a party the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council, or SIIC.[2] Long based in neighboring Iran, the group opposed a United States administration while holding close ties with the other, U.S.-backed, groups that opposed Saddam Hussein, including the Kurds and the Iraqi National Congress.

    "Mahdi was born in Baghdad in 1942, the son of a Shiite cleric who was a minister in Iraq's monarchy. He attended high school at Baghdad College, an elite American Jesuit secondary school."
