Basra Ceasefire Brokered by an Iranian.

A key development in Iraq, read about it at The Real News Network. Reporting by Pepe Escobar, who has been covering Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan since 1997.

“George W. Bush said that the battle of Basra was a defining moment in Iraq. Well, defining it was, but maybe not the way he intended. There was a ceasefire. Do you know the man who brokered a ceasefire? His name is Brigadier General Qassem Suleimani. He is the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Republican Guard Corps.”

This is the kind of information which is almost never given attention in Western mainstream media, which is currently parroting the U.S. elite’s propaganda campaign to demonize Iran in order to justify more war for profit and empire building.
