The way Soleimani brought Putin to his side

 


Donald Trump has proved how small the role of a person in a great position can be in history. 

He has departed as an incompetent leader of a great country. But Iranian General Soleimani, who was assassinated at Trump's behest, is still an significant person

As a great leader of the middle power, Soleimani turned the history of the Middle East. Recently, General Qasem Soleimani has been coming back to the discussions of Western security analysts.

An interview with Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah was aired on Lebanon's Al Mayadeen TV channel in late January. 

There, he claims, General Soleimani is the man who persuaded Russia to join with Syria. And that was during a two-hour face-to-face meeting with Russian President Putin.

 The conversation between the two best military strategists of modern times is a historic event. Because then the reality of the Middle East began to change. IS is defeated, Assad survives, anti-US militias in Iraq begin to grow stronger.


Beyond military reckoning, Soleimani made clear to Putin another threat. He pointed out that the slogan "Assad must go" and the jihadist campaign aimed to overthrow Damascus and establish a false caliphate, whose real target was not Iran but Russia.


This did not bode well for Syria but saved the country from another Iraq. The US-Israel-Saudi trident's program to cripple Iran by completely occupying the Middle East was thwarted. 

The Belt and Way project, the vehicle of Chinese globalization, gets a chance in the Middle East. And the Iran-Russia-China alliance is getting stronger. 

On the other hand, Erdogan of Turkey was forced to be anti-American. They saw that aligning the advantageous position between Iran and Russia was also beneficial for Turkey.

The year, 2015, was the turning point in the Syrian war. The Western media is spreading the propaganda that 'Assad must leave'. 

Assad's forces have been consistently defeated by the rebel Salafis and IS. At one point, Nasrallah enlisted Soleimani's meeting with President Putin. 

The meeting was held in Moscow. Putin was not alone there. He was with his defence minister and other top generals and military advisers.

It is the work of a huge personality and a sharp argument for a foreign commander to convince a powerful leader of utmost superiority in his plan. 

Nasrallah says, ‘(At the meeting) Soleimani presented a detailed strategic report on Syria and the region, explaining his proposed thinking and desired outcome. 

He uses scientific, impersonal, military and battlefield language. Maps, terrain, numbers and statistics speak for him. 

"I am convinced," Putin told Soleimani at the end of the meeting. Thus, Russia's military intervention in Syria was decided.

Nasrallah, however, made it clear that the whole thing happened at the request of Syria. The way Western powers, including Israel and Saudi Arabia, wanted to destroy Syria in the form of Libya with rebels, it was not possible for Iran alone to deal with it. 

Second, the strategic arrangement that Soleimani led by appearing on the battlefield was beneficial to Russia. 

Third, because of his detailed knowledge of the region, his influential personality, and his bravery, Soleimani was the right person he could count on.

Beyond military reckoning, Solomoni made clear to Putin another threat. He pointed out that the slogan "Assad must go" and the jihadist campaign aimed to overthrow Damascus and establish a false caliphate, whose real target was not Iran but Russia. 

Russia is only 900 kilometres from Aleppo, Syria, and the United States wants to use jihadists in the Middle East to force the former Soviet republics and Muslim communities to revolt against Russia.

In September 2015, Russian air and ground operations by Lebanese Hezbollah, Iran's Revolutionary Guards and Syrian forces began. At the time, Soleimani could be found either in the Damascus War Room or in Baghdad, managing Shiite militias.

News of the secret meeting in July 2015 was published by Reuters at that time. It is learned that a few months before the meeting, Khamenei met with the Russian Foreign Minister to discuss the formation of a joint Iran-Russia force with the help of Syria.

 Khamenei then sent a high-ranking official to Putin. Putin told him, "OK, we will intervene. Send Qasem Soleimani first."

Allies say that Soleimani is number one in convincing others of his ideas. Apart from that, he had extensive experience on the battlefield, ideas obtained directly from the soldiers, perfect analysis of the situation.

 This is evident from the fact that Putin, the world's number one geopolitical chess player, has gained confidence.

In September 2015, Russian air and ground operations by Lebanese Hezbollah, Iran's Revolutionary Guards and Syrian forces began.

 At the time, Soleimani could be found either in the Damascus War Room or in Baghdad, managing Shiite militias. 

Together they were active on the Iraqi and Syrian fronts to drive out ISIS. He stayed in the bunker-like an ordinary soldier. Simultaneously coordinated the military operations of several countries.

Soleimani's goal was not just Syria. He wants US troops to leave Iraq and the Middle East to be liberated. Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has given a sample of his work.

 U.S. missiles after arriving in Baghdad on diplomatic mission. Solaimani arrived in Beirut four days before the attack. "I just came to spend time with you ," he told Nasrallah. 

Later that night, he asked Nasrallah to provide 70 Hezbollah commanders for Iraqi militias. Soleimani will travel with them at dawn. 

It is difficult for Nasrallah to have so many military leaders in one place from midnight to dawn. But Soleimani was stubborn. 

When Nasrallah was communicating in different places, he saw his friend (Soleimani) praying Tahajjud (Night surerogatory prayer of Muslims).

 At dawn, Soleimani flew in a plane with at least 40 commanders. The rest of the commanders go later. In Iraq, pro-Iranian militias have not only defeated IS, but also posed a serious threat to US forces.

Soleimani does not exist, but much of his geopolitical strategy is implemented. Russia is America's strongest opponent there, Iran is even stronger.

 The Houthis in Yemen came out of the terrorist list through the Biden administration. In other words, Saudi Arabia was defeated in Yemen.

This man knew that war was an extension of politics. He has changed the recent history of the Middle East with his military politics as much as anyone else.

 He has extended Iran's defences to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. Thus, Iran has risen to the place of bargaining. 

Because of this military strategic position, they have China and Russia as allies. For this reason, some say that if Che Guevara had been successful, he would have been like Soleimani.
