A former US general said there were crucial decisions to be made during wartime, and that the decision not to act was often the most difficult decision – which is not always true.
The former US special forces commander General Stanley McChrystal used to make tough and fateful decisions by military action; however in 2007 he had an order to target General Qassem Soleimani, the famous Iranian commander of the Revolutionary Guards.
McChrystal told the Foreign Policy newspaper, in an interview published on Sunday morning.
According to Gen. McChrystal, he hesitated and didn’t carry out the assassination mission.
Soleimani was part of a battalion in Iraq, planted bombs along the road and that was a good reason to target the battalion or convoy, but didn’t do so, which McChrystal said that “I regretted that I didn’t carry out the mission”.
Qassem Soleimani has become the center stage in any talks at the moment, and has become a major concern to the United States in the Middle East and has become a prominent place in many countries of the region, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
The Policy newspaper said that Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian leader, had struggled for the difficult economic life he had faced throughout his life.
He became a strong Iranian military figure and a great strategist.
He is the one who runs the Iranian war in Syria and is a leading figure since his youth in order to strength his country’s position in the Middle East.
