My Take on the Elimination of an Iranian Terrorist Leader
The attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad was the latest of a quarter century of Iranian sponsored terrorist activity directed by General Qasem Soleimani so it would be televised and online for all to see. It was only fitting that within a few days the general would also be on television so the world could see his untimely demise outside the airport in Baghdad. It was a blast heard round the world and terrorists took notice. In the US many others took notice as well. Iranian and Syrian exiles were relieved and ecstatic over the news.
When the White House press release announced it was done by the order of President Trump it didn’t take long before Hollywood entertainers were quick to distance themselves even further from the President (nothing new here), with public cries out for Iran not to attack the US over this incident.
House Democrats began denouncing President Trump saying he was pushing the US into a war with Iran and alienating our “allies” in the region. Some even began parroting “Trump – war crimes violation” and even calling for a national day of mourning in the United States for the general. How ludicrous!
What many Americans fail to see is the media pushing their agenda rather than uniting behind the President and standing firm as a nation fighting a long-standing Global War on Terrorism?
I do not question the legality of this action taken by the Commander In Chief against a terrorist leader actively engaged in planning future attacks on US military personnel or American assets around the world. I do not celebrate or mourn Soleimani’s death, but he died as he lived – a terrorist.
I do question the patriotism and loyalty of Americans who choose to side with the enemy instead of backing up the President of the United States. Shame on you! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
