After reporting the death of the Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, caused by a bombing by the United States government near the Baghdad International Airport, 2020 has started with a dose of nervousness and international tensions that have even put the phrase “Third World War” trending on social networks.
Here is how Soleimani's death could affect the economy and security of great powers, and why her disappearance would also be a watershed in Middle East politics:
First, the Foreign Minister of Iran, Javad Zarif, described the attack as an "act of international terrorism" while the supreme leader and former president of that country, Ali Khamenei, threatened with "severe revenge" on those responsible for the attack. Together, the conflict in the countries of the Middle East tends to destabilize oil market prices.
Second, the Russian government described this fact as daring and through an official statement predicted that it will be responsible for a series of pressures and anxieties with "very negative consequences for the entire international security system."
Third, far from trying to defuse the tension, US President Donald Trump justified the attack on his Twitter account and claimed that Soleimani killed or seriously injured thousands of Americans - and that he planned to "kill many more." Furthermore, he added, Soleimani was "hated and feared within the country."
Fourth, after stating that Soleimani's death was not going to be a cause for tears for Americans, former United States Vice President Joe Biden questioned the attack strategy and said that Trump's order threw "a stick of dynamite in a powder keg." Experts believe it is necessary to formulate a plan to keep US troops on foreign soil, as well as personnel within their embassies, safe.
Fifth, what Soleimani represented in Iran: He gained his reputation as a revolutionary leader after the war between his country and Iraq in the 1980s. A few years later, he became the commander of the Quds Force, a powerful paramilitary group. elite of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). This military organization is the largest in that nation and is considered by the United States as a terrorist group.
Soleimani's death occurred early Friday, January 3, when Trump gave the order to fire a missile launched from an MQ-9 drone on the target near Baghdad Airport, the capital of Iraq.
