Soleimani's Replacement Has Blood on His Hands

(The Herald-Scotland) Struan Stevenson - The Iranian mullahs have replaced their fallen idol, Qasem Soleimani, with his deputy, Esmail Ghaani, as commander of the terrorist Quds Force. With blood on his hands, Gen. Ghaani is the ayatollahs' ideal choice to take command of their equivalent of the Gestapo. While Soleimani focused on proxy wars in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq, Ghaani's job was to bolster terrorist militias in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Africa. He was placed on America's terrorist blacklist in 2012 after 13 shipping containers destined for The Gambia were intercepted in Nigeria and found to hold Katyusha rockets and other weapons. In 2015 Ghaani assumed command of Iran's proxy forces in Aleppo, supervising and aiding the bloody massacre of the Syrian civilian population there. Ghaani will assuredly now be engaged in detailed planning for a major terrorist outrage. The writer, a former member of the European Parliament representing Scotland (1999-2014), is the Coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change (CiC).
