We took action last night to stop a war, We did not take action to start a war.—President Donald Trump on killing Iranian General Qasem Soleimni
At last, America has a president we can be proud of again. A president dedicated to protecting the American people and putting America first again and showing these other countries we don’t stand down and will strike back if you attack and harm any of us and our allies in the Middle East or anywhere as he just did with General Qasem Soleimani, a monster and supreme terrorist who killed over 500 Americans since 2006 and was planning more attacks..This guy should have been wiped out years ago. He was the point man for the largest exporter of state-sponsored terrorism in the world. Trump showed he will do whatever it takes to protect American lives here and abroad. I love Trump’s action that was to STOP a war, not to start a war. He is our rare, genuine hero!
President Trump spoke publicly about Soleimani’s death for the first time on Friday at a press conference in Palm Beach, Florida.”Soleimani was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him,” Trump said.
“For years the Islamic Revolutionary military Guard Corps and its ruthless Quds Force under Solemani’s leadership has targeted, injured and murdered hundreds of American civilians and servicemen,” he said. “The recent attacks on U.S. targets in Iraq — including rocket strikes that killed an American and injured four American servicemen very badly, as well as a violent assault on our American embassy in Baghdad — were carried out at the direction of Soleimani.”
Trump later commented on Soleimani saying, “General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was, directly and indirectly, responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number……..of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”
Trump showed he was determined not to let another Benghazi happen under him like with Obama where troops were told to stand down when the Libyan embassy was under attack. It was the failed policies of Obama and Biden of appeasement and loosening sanctions that got us into where we are today.
Even CNN’s liberal reporter Christiane Amanpour proclaimed today that Bin Laden’s death is a “nothing burger” compared to yesterday’s Soleimani killing.
“Qasem Soleimani was at the height of his power when he was taken out. Unlike Osama bin Laden, who was a forgotten, you know, nothing burger, sort of hiding in a villa in Pakistan,” Amanpour remarked.
According to the Pentagon, Soleimani was preparing to launch attacks on American diplomats and service members overseas that could have killed hundreds.
Of course, he was only one terror leader sent straight to Hell by American firepower at the orders of our commander-in-chief.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a shot at former President Barack Obama when describing this administration’s approach to dealing with Iran, noting they didn’t send the terrorist-harboring nation “pallets of cash.”
Pompeo explained that President Trump’s approach to dealing with rogue terrorist nations is “fundamentally different” than the path taken by Obama.
“We didn’t send pallets of cash to the Iranians. We didn’t pay for hostages. We didn’t create a deal which would have given them a clear pathway to a nuclear weapon,” he told Fox News., “We got him. We stopped him and it’s a good thing for the world and it saved American lives,” Pompeo said.
Obama famously gave nearly $2 billion to Iran as leverage to ensure three American prisoners were released around the time of the failed nuclear deal plus another 150 billion flown into Iran on wooden pallets in the dead of night stacked with Swiss francs, euros and other currencies,” CNN reported at the time.
“We have taken a very different approach,” Pompeo contrasted. “We believe it’s the one that will ultimately lead to success and stability in the Middle East.
Pompeo said it just right! Now years have gone by since Reagan took a tough stance and released the hostages taken under the weak Carter Administration and I think the Iranians will realize that President Trump is not the same pushover as President Obama was. Don’t expect him to give the Iranians cash payments so they will behave themselves. President Trump is doing what is necessary with a country that is pushing our limits.
As the young man in the site Educating Liberals tweeted, “Dear Iran, Obama isn’t in office anymore and Trump wasn’t kidding when he said for you to back off. Trump does not play around.”
Trump took action that you don’t mess with the United States of America.
Here are other savage terror leaders that Trump has had taken out in the last few months alone.
1)A daring raid commenced on October 26 to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Baghdadi saw the terror group expand from what President Obama mocked as the “JV team” into a bona fide caliphate with the ability to launch sophisticated attacks internationally. He was responsible for the deaths of thousands and would have eagerly killed many more innocents if given the opportunity.
As Delta Force soldiers and their furry compatriot Conan closed in on Baghdadi, the coward blew himself and two children up with a suicide vest.
From there, things got worse for ISIS. The Islamic State’s spokesman and likely Baghdadi successor, Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, succumbed to the devastating firepower of a U.S. airstrike in northwest Syria on October 27 – a mere 24 hours after Baghdadi’s death.
2)Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis chose to ride with Soleimani to the Baghdad Airport and met the same fiery demise at the hands of a Hellfire missile.
Though not as well known, Muhandis founded the Kata’ib Hezbollah militia, which recently killed an American contractor and whose supporters attempted to storm the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
And now Gen. Qusaem Soleimani in a fiery missile attack launched from a drone while he was riding in a car along with is next in line. The only way they could identify him was from the ring on his finger.
Also killed was Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a top Iraqi paramilitary leader whose long, bloody career includes attacks on American and other Western embassies, as well as being a founder of Kata’ib Hezbollah, a group responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq.The world is a safer and better place with these monsters gone.
Meanwhile, the destroy Trump media mob and the Hollyweird crowd has proven once again that they are the enemy of the people. Little known two-bit actress Rose McGowan sent a tweet to the Iranian people apologizing for us killing Soleimani and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer played both sides saying what a horrible person Solemani was and he killed hundreds of Americans, but Trump shouldn’t have done what he did and asked permission from Congress first. Technically they are right as the War Powers Act states that a president must get permission from Congress before acting militarily in another country, but do they really think he’d get permission from a House that’s trying to get rid of him through impeachment? Did Obama ask permission to go after Osama? Did Obama ask permission to send our enemy150 billion dollars in the dead of night? I don’t remember them chastising him after he did those things.
The media mob doesn’t care about any of this. They can’t even say a nice thing about Trump, instead, they spun stories about the Mullahs in Iran in an attempt o scold trump for taking out Soleimani. If Trump had not acted the way he did they would probably say he was weak and feckless. You can’t win with these people.
Anti-American congresswoman Ilhan Omar had to get her two cents worth in tweeting “So what If Trump wants war-knows that this leads to war and needs a distraction?
The real question is will this let Congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.”
