The Democrats, who oppose any and all actions taken by President Donald Trump simply because they despise him, have predictably taken umbrage with his ordering of an airstrike that killed Iran’s terror-centric General Qasem Soleimani.
Soleimani was an ostensibly bad guy, almost everyone outside of Tehran would agree with that, but that hasn’t stopped the liberal left from finding reasons to be upset with Trump. He didn’t ask Congress first. He didn’t notify Nancy Pelosi of his plans. He is going to start World War III.
What all of these flimsy attacks have in common is that they are ignoring the writing on the wall: Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans, and planned to kill hundreds more.
Secretary of Mike Pompeo explained as much in the wake of Soleimani’s death.
Pompeo said, “Soleimani, the terrorist, was engaged in active plotting. There was an attack that was imminent that could have killed dozens or hundreds of Americans. We found an opportunity and we delivered.”
Pompeo added, “He was traveling the region when he landed in Baghdad. The travels before that put him in places all around the region, which were aimed solely at building out what they were referring to as the big attack. They were aiming to take down significant amounts of Americans. It would’ve undoubtedly killed locals too. Iraqis, Lebanese, Syrians, perhaps, people all throughout the region. This was an attack that would have been to some scale.”
When it comes to saving American lives, no stone must remain unturned…no matter how much you dislike the President.
