It has been astounding to watch the radical left go out of their way to defend Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani.
This is a man who has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans, and had been tinkering with plans to kill hundreds or thousands more. He wasn’t some misunderstood martyr by any means, and his lengthy dedication to the use of terroristic tactics should recuse him from any such conversations on the matter.
Still, the American “resistance” to Trump has to keep plugging away somehow, and there are only a few ways to escalate the rhetoric past impeachment.
“War crimes” is one.
The New York lawmaker doubled down via social media on her opposition to Trump’s decision to eliminate Iran’s top terror chief Qasem Soleimani.
“This is a war crime,” she tweeted in response to Trump’s threat to target 52 Iranian sites in the event that the nation strikes Americans or American assets.
“Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children – which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a ‘tough guy.’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster,”…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed to bolster this assertion with a call to reexamine the War Powers Act.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote a letter to her Democrat colleagues in the House on Sunday to reveal a new “War Powers Resolution” that amounts to a pre-emptive surrender to Iran in ongoing hostilities.
Pelosi’s letter begins with the declaration that President Donald Trump’s airstrike last week targeting Iranian General Qasem Suleimani, leader of the terrorist Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IGRC) Quds Force, responsible for the murders of hundreds of Americans and for recent attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, was “provocative and disproportionate,” terms suggesting the attack was illegal under international law and could constitute a war crime.
The Democrats sure aren’t leaving any rounds in the chamber in 2020, but the election is still 8 months away.
