The threats that Iran is making are all being taken seriously. So much so that the United States military has conducted an effective strike against one man that would have been the cause of so much death because of the threat of war he proposes. The little general Qassem Soleimani was an American hater and instigator of many crimes against humanity. When President Trump ordered the strike it was in the best interests of the entire world that his life should come to an end.
The general was the leaders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Forces. Is it ever a wonder that Ilhan Omar is upset over his death. As she is in favor of Islamic terrorist organizations. The airstrike against Iran was directed at this little general and the evil that spilled out of his heart towards people. He was the reason that so many in the region feared for their safety every day.
As a result of the attacks, millions of people can now sleep safely in their own homes. There has also been an increase in the price of oil, gold, and stocks as a result. A few stocks were being sold off but that is only normal. It was as if the world celebrated the strike with a full trading day of gains for the most part. The major economies around the world saw major increases in certain areas and extremely low declines in others. Almost to the point that it is next to impossible to tell the reason why.
The United States has pointed out the Soleimani was the mastermind behind the cowardly attacks against the United States embassy in Iraq. The strike was ordered to put fear into Iran’s head that they are vulnerable to being wiped out if they do not stop killing people. The United States has stated that “The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.” There needs to be terror placed in the hearts of would-be killers such as this little man that kills from a chair in his office.
Of course, Iran’s leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has to spout off his big mouth and cry out revenge for the death of their general. All he was really saying is “please target me next.” Something that the United States would love to give to him. Americans living in Iraq have been ordered to leave the country because of the tension between Iran and America. Iran does not have the ability to attack America from great distances, so they have to resort to targeting innocent civilians.
The good news for portfolios is that the price of oil and gold has increased. Of course one can only wonder why since Iran has not been able to supply its oil to the world markets. But for people who hold these stocks and holdings they had seen an increase in their profits. Much of the worry lies around the Strait of Hormuz where a lot of the world’s oil passes. Fear is reigning because many think that Iran is going to block the region. But that would be foolish of them to do because it will just bring a defeating response to them.
Some would have people believe that war is imminent between Iran and America. Some even believe that Iran may stand a chance of winning, but then again some said the same thing about Iraq.
In a world controlled by the dollar Connor Campbell, who is a financial analyst stated that “Though Suleimani may be unknown by many in the West, some political analysts have likened him to a US vice president in terms of profile, while he has previously been described as the ‘single most powerful operative in the Middle East.” But his death just was not that important. The stock markets around the world traded at normal volumes and rates just like nothing happened. Iran needs to face the truth and realize that they just are not that important in the grand scheme of things.
