Hearing the official narrative on Soleimani from the controlled media I can't not notice how they gloss over some quite important bits. The only thing mentioned is his position within IRGC and his ops in support of Shi'ite resistance during the US invasion of Iraq. That was years ago and since then the same resistance won elections in Iraq. For the last six years, though, Soleimani's work focused on defeating ISIS, he organized the minority militias and led anti-ISIS forces in numerous decisive and victorious battles. He became a folk hero in the region among people who suffered at the hands of jihadis and those who fought to eventually defeat them, not only Shi'ites, but also Christians moderate Sunnis and other minorities. If you only consume Western media you would be excused thinking the caliphate was defeated by the Kurds and American airstrikes. The vast majority of the grunt work, however, was done by local militias, Hezbollah and whatever was left of Syrian and Iraqi armies. And Soleimani was a crucial player in that effort, moving through the shadows to avoid the ever-looming threat of assassination from ISIS and its regional allies, but wherever he emerged, he was treated as a rock star, providing a huge boost to local morale due to his proven record as an outstanding tactician. That's the bit the media gloss over: he was seen as a hero by most of the people who fought against ISIS, probably even more popular in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon that in Iran itself. Those who want war and pull the American strings couldn't pick a better target to inflame the anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment in the region. "Some people protested the airstrikes we did on those guys who fought against ISIS, so we'll kill the guy who saved hundreds of thousands of people from the caliphate as well. Whatcha gonna do about it?" isn't just a declaration of war against Iran, it's a personal slap to the face of half the Middle East at this point. The war lobby in Washington was constantly escalating against Iran for years now and Tehran demonstrated incredible self-control with little to no response to provocations, but now it's different. Now the people want American blood to spill in the sand, itching to avenge their martyred hero. Whatever stabilization the region has seen since the defeat of ISIS has just been deliberately and expertly flushed down the toilet by Jared Kushner's orangutan puppet.
