U.S.-Iran tensions are on the rise: A guide to why Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s death is a major escalation – The Globe and Mail

January 3rd, 2020

Protesters set fires in front of the U.S. embassy compound, in Baghdad, Iraq, Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019.

The latest

  • Iran’s state television reported that the country will no longer abide by any of the limits of its 2015 nuclear deal.
  • Earlier, thousands of mourners accompanied a casket carrying the remains of the slain Gen. Qassem Soleimani through two major Iranian cities Sunday. U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to bomb 52 sites in Iran if it retaliates by attacking Americans.
  • Separately, Iraq’s parliament has called for U.S. and other foreign military forces to leave amid a growing backlash.
  • Tens of thousands marched in Baghdad on Saturday to mourn Iran’s military chief Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who were killed in a U.S. drone strike on Jan. 3. Meanwhile, NATO announced it was suspending its training missing in Iraq, citing safety precautions.
  • On Saturday evening local time, several rockets fell in and around Baghdad, Iraqi military said. No casualties were reported and no group had claimed responsibility.
  • Iran had promised to seek revenge for the U.S. air strike on Jan. 3 near Baghdad’s International airport that killed Gen. Soleimani. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed “harsh retaliation.” In an interview with CNN, Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Majid Takht Ravanchi, said the attack on Gen. Soleimani “was an act of war,” by the U.S. and that “the response for a military action is a military action.”
  • The U.S. said it was sending nearly 3,000 more troops to the Middle East. There are around 5,200 troops based in Iraq to train Iraqi forces and help fight against Islamic State militants. President Donald Trump said Gen. Soleimani’s killing was not an effort to begin a conflict with Iran.

Who was Qassem Soleimani?

Gen. Soleimani headed the special-operations arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. He is known as being responsible for spreading Iran’s influence across the Middle East.

Gen. Soleimani’s early years are a mystery, but after Iran’s Islamic Revolution swept the shah from power, he joined the Revolutionary Guard. He became very close to Iran’s Supreme Leader, who referred to him as a “living martyr of the revolution.”

Gen. Soleimani directed everything from initial resistance to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq to more recent missile attacks on American troops still stationed in the country, as well as the targeting of oil installations in Saudi Arabia. He oversaw Iran’s military involvement in Syria as well as its influence over Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia, and was arguably the second-most-powerful person in Iran, after Khamenei.

He was seen as a hero in Tehran and among Shiite Muslims across the Middle East, as the mastermind of a series of strategic advances that came at the expense of the U.S. and its allies over the past 16 years.

Many others in the region and the West saw him as a villain responsible for deepening the sectarian conflicts in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The militias he directed have been blamed for tens of thousands of deaths. He was a shadowy figure in command of Iran’s proxy forces responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar al-Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq.

What led to the air strike that killed Gen. Soleimani?

The tension between Washington and Iran is long running, but has been jumping from one crisis to another since 2018, when President Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal negotiated under Barack Obama’s administration and imposed crippling sanctions

On Sunday, Dec. 29 in Washington, a Defence Department spokesman said the U.S. carried out military strikes in Iraq and Syria targeting Kataib Hezbollah bases that the U.S. blamed for a rocket attack that killed an American contractor.

The U.S. ambassador to Iraq and other staff were evacuated from their embassy in Baghdad for their safety on Tuesday, Iraqi officials said, as thousands of protesters and militia fighters outside the gate denounced U.S. air strikes in Iraq. Reuters

In response, angry protests led by Iranian-backed militias torched a security post at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. After Washington dispatched extra troops and threatened reprisals against Tehran, the paramilitary groups who stormed the perimeter of the embassy withdrew.

The anti-American sentiment came after months of protests in Iraq against the government and the Iran-backed militias that support it. Many Iraqis feel their country has become a battlefield for a proxy war for influence between Washington and Tehran, and that their leaders are beholden to outside powers.

What’s at stake for the U.S.?

A statement released late Thursday by the Pentagon said the strike on Gen. Soleimani “was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”

Trump was vacationing on his estate in Palm Beach, Fla., when the first air strike was launched, but sent out a tweet of an American flag.

He later defended his decision to kill Iran’s top general as a necessary measure to “stop a war” by preventing imminent attacks on Americans – even as fears grow of escalation into a full-scale war between the two countries.

“We take comfort in knowing that his reign of terror is over,” Trump said of Gen. Soleimani. The White House gave formal notice of the strike on Saturday, amid complaints from Democrats that Trump did not notify lawmakers or seek advance approval for the attack.

The attack comes at the start of a year in which Trump faces both a Senate trial after his impeachment by the House and a re-election campaign.

What’s at stake for Iran and Iraq?

The killing promised to further strain relations with Iraq’s government, which is allied with both Washington and Tehran and has been deeply worried about becoming a battleground in their rivalry.

Hashtags like #WW3 and #FranzFerdinand were trending on Twitter after the initial U.S. air strikes. Leadership in Tehran clearly regard the assassination as something akin to a formal declaration of war, and many around the world fear this is the start of further action.

The targeted strike, and any retaliation by Iran, could ignite a conflict that engulfs the whole region, endangering U.S. troops in Iraq, Syria and others.

How Canada and the West have responded

Canada is in contact with its international partners, Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne said in a statement, adding that the government is calling on all sides to “exercise restraint.”

“Our goal is and remains a united and stable Iraq,” Mr. Champagne said.

The NATO mission in Iraq, which is headed by Canadian General Jennie Carignan, has suspended its training mission following the U.S. drone strike that killed Gen. Soleimani.

There are a maximum of 850 members of the Canadian Armed Forces are approved to serve in an operation to train, advise and assist the Iraqi security forces and to support the NATO mission in Iraq. The mission’s purpose is to help prevent the resurgence of the Islamic State.

A senior source who was not authorized to speak publicly about the suspension, described the move as a “tactical pause” and that the decision to pause the training was made while the mourning takes place for Gen. Soleimani

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said his country has always recognized the threat posed by the Iranian force the general led, adding that further conflict ”is in none of our interests.”

The killing of Gen. Soleimani was condemned by both Moscow and Beijing, and caused concern even among some traditional U.S. allies. A German government spokesperson warned that the situation is at a ”dangerous escalation point,” while Turkey said it is “deeply” worried about relations between the United States and Iran.

David Foster arranged Harry and Meghan’s Vancouver Island vacation – CANOE

January 3rd, 2020

Music mogul David Foster helped to arrange accommodation for Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex’s stay in Canada by connecting them with an old friend.

The hitmaking producer, whose new wife, singer/actress Katharine McPhee, was childhood pals with the former Suits star, reveals he put the British royals in touch with a close acquaintance, who offered up his eight-bedroom waterfront estate on Vancouver Island for the couple’s low-key vacation.

“I felt honoured that I was able to help Meghan there, because I’m a Canadian and we’re a Commonwealth country …,” Foster told the Daily Mail. “It’s important to us, so I grew up with that kind of sentiment. I was really happy to be able to help them to find a respite just to take a little time off.”

Although David wouldn’t share the name of the friend who owns the estate, he insisted everyone was delighted to introduce the royals, their seven-month-old son Archie, and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, to the natural wonders of British Columbia.

“The owner has allowed this to happen through me, and I was happy to facilitate,” Foster gushed. “I don’t know what their (Harry and Meghan’s) next plans are, but I know that it was reinvigorating for them to spend some downtime.”

The pair certainly took advantage of the picturesque scenery on Vancouver Island – Prince Harry and Meghan were spotted hiking in the woods with the former actress’ Suits co-star Abigail Spencer, and they even stopped to help shocked pedestrians take a picture.

“I couldn’t believe who it was,” one of the hikers, Asymina Kantorowicz, told People.com. “There was Meghan smiling at me, waiting to take the photo and it was just shock at that moment and disbelief.”

Asymina added: “The only thing I could think to say to her was, ‘There’s only so much that selfie sticks can do’. She laughed and said something like, ‘We’ll have to take a good photo then,’ and then Harry said, ‘No pressure.’”

“She seemed happy and down to earth – she was just enjoying her New Year’s hike with her husband and friend. She and Harry seemed really happy – like a happy newly married couple. I wish baby Archie had been there! I hope they’re enjoying their stay on Vancouver Island.”

Leaving Neverland: Court rules accusers can sue Michael Jackson companies – BBC News

January 3rd, 2020

Image caption Jackson died in 2009 but his family have denied the claims made against him

Two men who featured in a documentary alleging sexual abuse by the singer Michael Jackson can pursue legal claims against two of his companies, a court has ruled.

Wade Robson and James Safechuck claim they were abused by the singer in the late 80s and early 90s while staying at his Neverland ranch.

Jackson died in 2009 but his family have denied the claims.

They described the documentary Leaving Neverland as a “public lynching”.

A lower court had dismissed lawsuits brought by the two men in 2014 because California’s statute of limitations required that claims of childhood sexual abuse be filed before an accuser’s 26th birthday.

However a new law, which came into effect on 1 January, extends the timeframe up to a person’s 40th birthday.

Both Mr Robson and Mr Safechuck claim they were abused by Jackson from the ages of seven and 10.

Vince Finaldi, the lawyer for the two men, said in a statement following the ruling: “We are pleased that the Court has recognised the strong protections California has put into place for sexual abuse victims under the state’s new law extending the statute of limitations.”

Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for Jackson’s estate, said: “The Court of Appeal’s ruling merely revived lawsuits against Michael Jackson’s companies, which absurdly claim that Michael’s employees are somehow responsible for sexual abuse that never happened.”

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden announce birth of baby girl Raddix – CBS News

January 3rd, 2020

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have welcomed their first child, a daughter named Raddix Madden. The couple on Friday made the surprise announcement on Instagram.

“Happy New Year from the Maddens! We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family,” they wrote.

Diaz, 47, and Madden, 40, said they are “overjoyed to share this news” but also “feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy.”

Trending News

The couple said they won’t be posting any pictures of Raddix or sharing any further details about her birth, but did confirm that she is “really really cute!” 

“Some would even say RAD,” they wrote, adding a smiley face emoticon. 

“From our family to all of yours, we’re sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade,” the couple concluded, signing off with a heart. 

The actress and Good Charlotte band member were married in January 2015 at their home in Beverly Hills. They have been notoriously private about their relationship, but Diaz opened up about potentially being a mother in an interview with Marie Claire in 2014.

“We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids,” she said. “There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think,’I have children, why doesn’t she?’ But I’m not going to do something because it’s expected. If a family happens, then it happens. If children come to me, then I would do that, but I’m not someone who feels like she has to do something because it’s expected.”

Cases Of Highly-Contagious RSV Spiking In Minnesota – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

January 3rd, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The flu isn’t the only illness spiking right now.

Health experts are also seeing more cases of a respiratory virus called respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV.

The virus usually causes symptoms similar to a cold, but it can be dangerous for infants and older adults.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say more than two million children under 5 years of age are diagnosed with RSV every year. It is also the number-one cause of pneumonia in babies.

The Minnesota Department of Health says at least 63 people were hospitalized for RSV last week. There have been 358 hospitalizations this season. The majority of those patients are under a year old.

RSV is highly contagious. Doctors say it is critical to stay inside your home and wash your hands frequently if you or your child are sick.
