America just took out
the world’s no. 1 bad guy

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 1/3/2020 4:26:53 AM

So, just who is this top Iranian general the U.S. just eliminated? For many of us who watch and analyze news out of the Middle East daily, he was the world’s number one bad guy. Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.

Democrats are decrying President Trump’s decision to take out Soleimani because they know it will strike fear in the hearts of our enemies. They know that the bad guys realize that there is a guy at the helm that has the courage to act when provoked. Soleimani didn’t realize who he was up against. Trump is no Obama. Our President is making it clear, you attack any American or facility and there will be a price to pay. This not only sends a message to the Middle East but to our friends in the Far East. As far as this starting a real war, I believe the bad guys are going to think twice because this President is going to fight to win and now he has the means to do it. He will shock and awe them to death and they know it.

When you consider all the fine young men who have been killed or badly injured in the everlasting "Afghanistan War" (think it is going on close to 18 YEARS), you've got to assume that our boots-on-the-ground much prefer President Trump's Rules of Engagement than those of W. Bush and/or Obama.

FTA - "We’re already hearing from a number of critics that this move will likely backfire against the U.S. and will provoke Iran to retaliate even more forcibly against American and its allies. To those people making those warnings, there’s really only one thing to say: “Welcome to the party, pal!”" Dims and msm excepted. The world will be a much better place without him.

Iran is our enemy, there is no doubt of that, but think for a minute about a Treaty we bought with them with American money. A fake treaty that was suposed to stop their Nuclear program from building a bomb. They never stopped, they never slowed down, they just hid their s\efforts a little better if they did anything at ALL. What enemy gave them those Billions and signed off on that phony treaty? The same enemy who met with the Viet Cong in Paris. The same enemy who went to them and told them to wait out Trump. The same enemy who in conjunction with our Muslim President was selling us out and using our own money to do it. Our enemy is within . Those in Congress who would impeach our President, and those who are behind them with their big cash who pay to get them elected.

Keep this in mind: We took out the top military leader of a country that had just attacked US soil. You will hear the word assassination ad-nauseam . Just because the landscape of the 21st century battlefield has taken on a different form than the liner formations of the past, this is no different than any general who strayed within sniper range and got killed in the 19th century. The propagandists will go to great lengths and we'll find ourselves accidentally using their words and aiding their spin if we aren't vigilant. Come to think of it their claim that we couldn't do a thing reminds me of General Sedgwick who's famous last words were “They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.”

When Qaddafi acted up, Reagan taught him a lesson. He renounced terrorism and promised to be good. Hillary didn't like that and had him killed. Republicans make peace, Democrats thrive from making the world a bad place to live. Remember their motto: Never let a good crisis go to waste.

Domestic Enemy Rep. Ilhan Omar is complaining, wondering by what authority we dropped a drone on the terrorist general. Remember that Former CIA Director and future jailbird John Brennan calls Jerusalem "Quds." He, too is a Domestic Enemy, as is the president who appointed him DCI. We know who our friends are, and we know our enemies. Obama confused the two, but Trump won't. After all, he's on our side. What a concept.

Demonrats would squeal "process crimes!" if the POTUS brought peace to the world, cured cancer, and solved world hunger. These Iranian barbarians remind me of the Cuban secret police, who would go to war torn hellholes, like Vietnam and Africa, to practice interrogation techniques on prisoners, and teach local revolutionary warlords how to cause chaos and misery to bring about Communism. In this case to bring about Islamism, which is more evil than Communism, imo.

Soleimani made two or three mistakes. First off, he imagined Nancy Pelosi knew something.... which she didn't, and secondly, he imagined Trump, the FBI, CIA, etc are totally oblivious to Tarmac meetings in large airports. Apparently Trump knows something and he always hits back harder. Soleimani is just the first of many Iranian creeps who will now be disposed of like yesterday's garbage. Oh, and it has only a little bit to do with recent Iranian attacks on Americans ~ the reason for the targeting of Iran's leadership elite is simple ~ just a couple of months back the regime tracked down and murdered over 1,000 young people ~ men and women, boys and girls ~ who'd done nothing but object to being systematically starved to death by the regime. We don't have a war with Iran's population, but the mad dog killers in charge of the place have failed to maintain the quanat system, have drilled large wells into limited fossil water sources, and left the country helpless in the face of a record breaking drought (part of that 400 year cycle that recurring brings down even Chinese dynasties). What the Middle East can't deal with, and neither can the Russians to the North, is a body of 70 million Iranians fleeing the highlands seeking to find water to drink and food to eat ~ but that's coming unless Iran finds some competent, modern people to run the place!

The Democrats have labeled the killing of Soleimani an assassination. This wasn't an assassination as that would imply that Soleimani had some type of political leadership role in the world. This slime ball was the leader of Iranian terrorists so his demise should be considered as the euthanizing of a rabid dog!

It’s odd how the political left cheers America’s shortcomings and mourns its victories. The United States killed the top terrorist on the planet Thursday, and Democrats were…upset. Perhaps “upset” is too vague, they were a combination of angry and scared. They were angry that President Trump ordered an air strike on Qassem Soleimani, a man responsible for the deaths of more than 600 American soldiers and thousands more wounded. They tried to pretend they were glad he was dead, that he deserved to die, but their quick condemnation of the action that took him out exposed what they were really thinking.

Democrats began this election cycle with what was supposed to be a presidential primary field of unprecedented diversity. But it’s now clear that the nominee will be white. No one will miss Julian Castro, the latest candidate to drop out. But his exit from the race, like that of Kamala Harris, is already occasioning a new round of baseless assertions that the deck is stacked against nonwhite candidates in the presidential primaries.

Supporters of Joe Biden are unlikely to be persuaded by most of the common criticisms. They know he can be rambling and unintelligible. They know his record is unimpressive and that he doesn’t really have “policy proposals”. None of this matters, though, because to them he has the most important quality of all: he can beat Donald Trump. Nothing you can say about the former vice-president’s record, platform or mental state matters next to the argument that he is the best hope Democrats have of getting Trump out of office.

Trump’s red line against the Iranian regime harming Americans was very real, and Qasem Soleimani is dead. The U.S. killed the Iranian terror-master at the Baghdad airport where he reportedly had just arrived from Syria. The head of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, Soleimani was the instrument of Iranian imperialism around the region, building up proxy forces, overseeing operations, and executing a geopolitical vision. He existed at the very center of the Iranian regime and was uniquely skilled at his role, honed over decades of ruthlessness and cunning. He was also a cold-blooded killer of Americans, responsible for the deaths of hundreds of our servicemen during the Iraq war.

The calendar turns and a decade begins, but there is nothing new under the sun in Washington. Even the killing of an Iranian mass murderer is cause for more partisan strife. In a sane country, which America used to be, there would be shared sober satisfaction over the elimination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Yet Democrats apparently outsourced their reactions to robots, whose script called for conceding that the departed was a very bad man, but prohibited approval of President Trump’s decision to take him out.

Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was killed Thursday night in a strike by an MQ-9 Reaper drone. The operation to kill Soleimani is believed to have been overseen by the CIA. U.S. Air Force pilots fly Reapers from Creech Air Force base in Nevada and some are seconded to the CIA in Langley, Virginia. According to the U.S. Air Force, the Reaper is an "armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long-endurance remotely piloted aircraft that is employed primarily against dynamic execution targets and secondarily as an intelligence collection asset." It "provides a unique capability to perform strike, coordination, and reconnaissance against high-value, fleeting, and time-sensitive targets."

About 20 years ago, academic researchers began describing poor urban neighborhoods without supermarkets as “food deserts.” The term captured the attention of elected officials, activists, and the media. They mapped these nutritional wastelands, blamed them on the rise of suburban shopping centers and the decline of mass transit, linked them to chronic health problems suffered by the poor, and encouraged government subsidies to lure food stores to these communities. Despite these efforts, which led to hundreds of new stores opening around the country, community health outcomes haven’t changed significantly, and activists think that they know why. The culprits, they say, are the dollar-discount stores in poor neighborhoods that—

Tucker Carlson of Fox News was not among those celebrating the end of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani’s reign of terror around the globe.

The number of people shedding tears for the leader of Iran’s infamous Quds Force is very limited, and most assuredly, Carlson was not mourning Soleimani’s death.
