The Soleimani Assassination | Start Here

The assassination of Iranian Major General Soleimani by the US military has relations between Washington and Tehran hitting a new low. US President Donald Trump says the assassination was necessary to prevent an imminent threat but Iran’s leaders and allies say the killing represents an act of war. Was the attack legal? And how will Iran respond? “Start Here” tackles the big questions.

    He was number one target for Israel. They got TRUMP to do the job. TRUMP’s administration and its closest inner circle are taken over by Israelis or their sympathizer. So, what Israel wants in the region TRUMP will get it done.

    0:57 You know there’s something wrong when people at the funeral are yelling ‘death to another country’. Only insane people and terrorists would do that.

    Start Here Series is Amazing. Please also make an episode for the communication blackout in Kashmir ! Seems like not much vid on youtube talks about that.

    Can we please ask the good citizens of Iran and it’s government for humanitarian and economic aid to be sent to the the Philippines (Taal Volcanic Eruption ) and Australia wildfires. Which country in the middle-east would be responsible enough to be a leader in humanitarian assistance? Take on some refugees as well even if they are not Muslim please…think again

  22. Sinwoo Yoo Reply

    Soleimani should’ve died or killed a long time ago, but more specifically, Iran should’ve gone back to the time before the Khomeini’s revolution which the most Iranian actually wants. If you think Allah’s book and rule prioritize over the freedom and its consequences, you may do not use any of the technological marbles that sustain our civilizations. Please turn off “Youtube” and fxxk off.
