Donald Trump’s decision to eliminate General Qasem Suleimani, N°2 of the Iranian Regime, undeniably transforms a conflict that was slowly simmering into a sudden powder keg. It is undoubtedly the most dangerous and risky decision taken by an American President since the 2nd Gulf War in March 2003.
In my job I have seen and heard, like many other journalists, a lot of crap. Many of us have seen more dead people than we would have liked to see: Destroyed, shot, hanged, burned… There are many ways to kill people.

European governments have left the way open for the Muslim Brotherhood to shape the Islamic public opinion in Europe as they wished. And the results were soon available.

Talks that were supposed to terminate an 18-year-old conflict.
