On Thursday evening, the news broke that President Trump ordered a targeted strike in Iraq that lead to the death of terrorist leader Soleimani. He’s the head of Iran’s terrorist Quds Forces.

Reaction to the killing of the terror leader was reasonably predictable.  American liberals and leftist media talking heads weren’t happy with the action Average Iranians, however, seemed to have a much different opinion. They celebrated.

Pundits and politicians on the left were not happy with the President’s justified decision to send Soleimani to meet his maker..

Newsbusters tells us about MSNBC’s reaction. 

…During the primetime pearl-clutching on MSNBC’s The Last Word, a panel of journalists and former Obama administration officials were busy suggesting there was no plan and “if” Soleimani deserved what he got, Trump was the “wrong” president to dish it out.

Towards the end of the show, host Lawrence O’Donnell basically went around the room and had his panel of lefties quickly reiterate their gripes about the strike that they made throughout the show.

What’s really amazing is how fast Andrea Mitchell was able to get her opinion from Hillary Clinton.

“I think you’ll see Qasem Soleimani treated like a martyr and treated as a hero of his country, which is not how we Americans see him. But you can certainly expect the Iranian regime to use this for all the propaganda value they can,” former Obama Middle East advisor Daniel Benaim said

Really? Wait he worked for Obama.  He probably has a picture of Soleimani in his bedroom.

Iran’s Supreme Leader was not happy.

 

BTW he is a fraud.  Khamenei is not the supreme leader. Diana Ross was the leader of the supremes!

But others had quite a different opinion:

 

Actually, France honored Soleimani by raising the white flag at half staff.

The president already has the  authorization to use the military in Iraq,

According to Secretary of State Pompeo, the strike was carried out to prevent an “imminent attack” by forces directed by Soleimani.

“He’s got hundreds of American lives and blood on his hands. What was sitting before us was his travels throughout the region, his efforts to make a significant strike against Americans. There would have been many Muslims killed as well, Iraqis and people in other countries. It was a strike that was aimed at disrupting that plot, disrupting further aggression and we hope, setting the conditions for de-escalation as well,” he said.

Soleimani planned the 2012 attacks in Libya because he knew about the gun-running to Syrian rebels that were going on out of the CIA Annex He was responsible for Benghazi, not a lousy youtube video.

Soliemani is dead!  Now that has a nice ring to it.

Some at CNN seemed a bit distraught to hear of the terror leader’s death, Newsbusters said:

 

And of course, the left-wing Washington Post displayed their love for Iran by calling Soleimani “Iran’s most revered military leader” in a headline that was changed less than an hour later.

Indeed the man is a terrorist. As the president explained:

Of course, Rep. Ilhan Omar objects to the President defending the country.

We’re not really surprised, given her previous show of support for the Iranian regime and other terrorist supporters

 

Is Ilhan Omar going to sit Shiva? I refuse to send her a Shiva basket!

Road Kill? Do you think this is where General Solemani will serve next?

Terrorist Leader Soleimani

But Steve, Barack Obama bowed down to Iran.

And Scott Adams has an excellent point about the coming craziness.

For the best perspective of the killing of Soleimani watch this video of Secretary of State Pompeo.
