“The assassination of Iran’s senior commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimeni, one year ago today by the criminal regime in Washington DC, is a day that will live in infamy,” he said. “Lt. General Soleimeni is a hero of the Iranian Revolution and a leader of the global resistance against US Imperialism, respected by peace-loving people the world over. His memory is enshrined in the hearts and minds of the Iranian people and their friends and supporters worldwide.”
Earlier in the day, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei warned of a tough response awaiting “those who ordered and perpetrated General Soleimani’s killing” adding that, “this revenge is certain [and will be taken] at the [earliest] possible time.”

Etler further added that those resisting US hegemony are “resolute in their opposition to the criminal acts of the US and its surrogates.”
“They will surely suffer repercussions and ultimate defeat.”
The political commentator also enumerated other instance of resistance against US Imperialism across the globe.
“This has been seen time and time again. The resistance of the people of Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and many other nations to US aggression has shown how futile the efforts of the imperialists are.,” noted the analyst, based in Santa Cruz California. “The protracted struggle of the Iranian nation and people to US aggression adds another illustrious chapter to the anti-imperialist struggle.”
Such was the courage of this man that the enemy saw him as a formidable force to reckoned with.
