Anybody listening to Scmucky Schumer right? Trump needed to consult with Congress about attacking Iran's top general? Did Clinton consult Congress when he ordered the bombing of an aspirin factory?

The Iranian led attack on our Embassy is an act of war against American soil. We reacted appropriately against the Iranian led attackers.

Been pondering Pelosi's response for awhile now. POTUS response to this was extremely successful and beneficial to both the US and the people of Iran. What does Pelosi expect to gain from these statements? I suspect they will come back to bite her in the future. Pelosi is just posing.

Trump knew darn well that this move might cause oil to spike and for the Stock Market to be affected. But he did it anyway. This means he puts the safety of Americans above the economy.

If Trump had consulted anyone, especially the Congress, the operation could never have happened, due to leaks. The people of Iran are cheering Trump for taking out this terrorist leader. Today, the Marines arrested another bad guy, Hadi al Amiri. More to come.

FTA: The targeted airstrike killed powerful Iranian military commanders the Pentagon says were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members - and were plotting more attacks, Would Nasty Pelosi explain what a “proportionate” response would be to this killer of at least 600 American soldiers in Iraq and thousands of Syrians opposed to Assad? A letter to Soleimani’s personnel file? Having this Iranian terrorist listen to Pelosi’s insane impeachment speech? Or another Obama style pallet of Euros and Swiss Francs to buy this killer’s kindness for a day or two? Just what is proportionate in eliminating a mass killer?

The LAST thing I ever want to hear in regards to dealing with my enemy is PROPORTION. I want an overwhelmingly DISPROPORTIONATE response to enemy aggression every time. I want them (and the entire world) to know that attacking Americans is not an option any sane leader or country would choose. John F’n Kerry should probably be at a black site getting waterboarded for his treasonous activity with Iran against the USA, but I’d prefer they used diesel.

The opposition to this clearly successful effort against our enemy Iran and Isis is a gift from God. It will clarify even more clearly the anti-American (thus anti-Trump) hysteria that is infecting the domestic left and of course send a clear message that Trump doesn't take s**t, pardon the vulgarity, from anyone.

The Iranians launched an attack on our embassy in Iraq. It wasn't a protest. The only reason we didn't have any casualties is because our soldiers successfully defended themselves and the civilians stationed there. Since when are Iranian generals allowed to operate in Iraq? It is clear that Iran is still in a state of war with Iraq and the United States. Our response was justifiable. There was nothing 'provocative' about it. The general and the others killed in the attack probably ordered the attack on our embassy. It was not disproportionate. Pelosi doesn't have a leg to stand on.

The killing of Iranian terror-meister Qassem Soleimani in a targeted US air strike in Baghdad on Thursday will have a dramatic impact on the stability of the Iranian regime and its ability to conduct oversea terrorist operations.Soleimani was, in many ways, the irreplaceable man. Known as a charismatic leader — indeed, the only charismatic leader in Iran’s military today — he has no parallel among contemporary Iranian commanders.Wherever Iran has sent its expeditionary Quds Force to war — in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen —there you would find Soleimani.

A report by the Wall Street Journal details how a “demographic shift” — with the help of more than 1.2 million legal immigrants being admitted to the United States every year — is changing the American electorate in favor of Democrats. Trump’s white working-class base of support, the Journal notes, is expected to decline in population by about 2.3 percent in time for the 2020 presidential election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next. The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night. The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq. U.S. officials have said those attacks were likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias with links to the Quds Force.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

The plan, if approved at the church’s worldwide conference in Minneapolis in May, would divide the denomination into two branches: a traditionalist branch that opposes gay marriage and the ordination of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clergy, and a more tolerant branch that will allow same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy. The split would affect the denomination globally, church leaders said. The United Methodist Church lists more than 13 million members in the United States

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts.

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.
