"There will be dead Americans"
as a result of Iran general
being killed, ex-CIA deputy director says

The targeted killing of Qassem Soleimani, one of Iran's top military leaders, has escalated tensions between the U.S. and Iran, with Iran vowing revenge. CBS News senior national security contributor, and former acting and deputy CIA director Michael Morell told "CBS This Morning" the drone strike on Soleimani will lead to "dead civilian Americans." "Soleimani was an evil genius, he had a lot of American blood on his hands," Morell said. "The world is a better place without him. The problem is that comes at a very high cost. Number one, there will be dead Americans, dead civilian Americans, as a result of this.


A couple of observations: 1. There HAVE been dead Americans because of this guy, hence our most recent action. 2. All of these former government officials act like Trump made this decision in a vacuum -- a one-off, knee-jerk reaction. He did not. I am convinced he took action at this point in time due to well-verified intelligence and on the recommendation of senior military and CIA officials who indeed have a Plan B and are ready to execute it.

Somehow I missed the clutching of pearls when Bin Laden was put at room temperature...Suleiman made Bin Laden look like an amateur and richly and thoroughly deserved the Hellfire missile up his backside

Hey Mike, would there have been dead Americans if we did not take out Soleimani? What would you have done? More pallets of cash?

If resisting enemies makes them angry, we should appease them. If killing enemies results in them trying to kill MORE of us, we shouldn't ever kill them. Pallets of cash. Apologies. And accelerated facilitation of Muslim immigration to prove we aren't "racists" and love "diversity". Right. That's the ticket.

Morell was not a very good CIA director. Don't think I will listen much to him. However, many Americans die every day in our country, killed by mideast types, drugs, and illegals. So?

There are already dead Americans because he was alive. Killing him will in overall reduce the number of dead Americans.

That so many Democrats are disappointed, and upset this guy was taken out, makes me wonder if they benefited more from him being alive than dead. Was Iraq becoming the new Ukraine? Corrupt and available to be exploited for $$$?

Profiling Iranians and cartel members would cut down on the numbers of American dead, but Pelosi, etal would have us ban profiling - dead Americans that she and her ilk can blame on President Trump will result in political points she craves.

There will be dead Americans regardless... the question is, more or less after this, and let's be honest, assassination. This is just one more fool totally bought into bigger government, constant war, and bigger pensions. He couldn't make it in the private sector, thus, he works for the government, and creates chaos there rather than in the, uh, shipping department. Unfortunately, the consequences are global. What. A.

Another NeverTrumper traitor from "the intelligence community" opines his foolish political opinions. What a fitting name....kept in the dark and fed BS, the perfect mushroom. There is so little actual intelligence (of the brain power kind) in "the intelligence community" these days that they ought to be called "the ignorance community" or the "Fake News community", it would be so much more accurate.

This guy was already planning more American deaths when we took him out so I don't see worrying about Iran's response. They have slowly been building up their provocations....threatening ME shipping, rocket attacks, embassy attacks, etc. seeing how far they can go and what they can get away with. I have no doubt that their end game in the attack on our embassy was to take control and hostages. This was what Soleimain was there to do. Trump has actually shown great patience and forbearance especially after the drone attack on Saudi oil facilities. Iran had best tread carefully. They no longer have their friend, enabler and ally in the White House.

Iran has reportedly placed an $80million bounty on Donald Trump's head and threatened to attack the White House in response to the president's warning that any strike on American interests in the region will bring massive retaliation. According to an NBC News reporter, an organizer for a funeral procession for Gen Qassem Soleimani called on all Iranians to donate $1 each 'in order to gather an $80million bounty on President Trump's head'. The organizer is said to have made the remarks during the procession in Mashad. Iran has also announced that they will no longer abide by any of the limits of its 2015 nuclear deal.

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.

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.

The pope’s mask of benignity has fallen before. For my money, his cruelest and most telling encounter was with an innocent altar boy who held his hands together piously.

The gaudy red ring that helped initially identify the corpse of Iran’s Major Gen. Qassem Soleimani is no Hope Diamond, according to local jewelers. Dealers believe the distinctive ring worn by Soleimani is either a red carnelian stone — believed by some Middle East Muslims as able to bestow “blessings”– or possibly an inexpensive ruby that would cost a few hundred bucks. “From the photo, it looks like it’s a carnelian stone — it’s not a ruby; it comes from Africa,” said Maykel Rieth, a professional cutter for R Gems Inc on West 48th Street. “The ring is made out of silver,” he continued.

This week, the Democrats have been revealed as the party that exposes us to (1) criminal mayhem (often anti-Semitic) on the streets of New York and (2) terrorism everywhere as they consistently ignored it, indeed, paid off the perpetrators with pallets of airlifted unmarked bills and praised the worst of its perpetrators. The President has the magical power, it seems, to get idiots and criminals to expose themselves.
