‘Reckless move’: Democrats spin killing of terrorist Iranian top general as bad, illegal

After an airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani on Thursday night, Democrats were left searching for a way to criticize the president for taking out a man responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans over the years.

Soleimani’s death is unanimously acknowledged as a severe blow to Iran, as Soleimani was a figure of immense military and political authority. He was also indisputably a terrorist and an enemy of the United States who was an active threat to the lives of Americans in the Middle East.

So, Democrats attempted to toe a fine line, which can be summarized as: “Soleimani was a murderous, evil, terrorist who deserved to die, but….”

Some examples:

From Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “Soleimani was a murderer, responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. But this reckless move escalates the situation with Iran and increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict. Our priority must be to avoid another costly war.”

And former Vice President Joe Biden: “[Soleimani] deserved to be brought to justice for his crimes against American troops and thousands of innocents throughout the region. He supported terror and sowed chaos. None of that negates the fact that this is a hugely escalatory move in an already dangerous region. … President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox…”

Wendy Sherman, onetime under secretary of state for political affairs for former President Barack Obama, said the Obama administration didn’t go after Soleimani because they understood what the consequences were: “There will be terrible, terrible reprisals. They will likely happen in the Middle East, but they could happen really anywhere in the world.”

Perhaps the clearest example that President Trump would be criticized no matter what comes from Connecticut Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy.

After violent protests by an Iran-backed militia at the U.S. Embassy in Iraq earlier this week, Murphy blamed Trump for rendering America “impotent” in the Middle East, saying “no one fears us.”

Days later, after a powerful show of force against Iran, Murphy was criticizing the president for killing a major enemy in the Middle East.

“[D]id America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?” Murphy wrote on Twitter.

  1. It’s debatable whether the Democrat’s ignorance, hypocrisy, or just simple-mindedness is greatest. Eliminating your enemy’s leaders and key planners has been a staple of warfare since the first humanoid threw a rock at a competitor for the waterhole. The Germans tried to kill Churchill, the Allies tried to kill Hitler, the Americans ambushed Admiral Yamamoto. Officers in combat learned not wear rank insignias in combat, as it made them a prime target for snipers.
    The Marine legend, Carlos Hathcock’s greatest exploit was his assassination of a key NVA general at his base miles into enemy territory. Just as with all the liberal yammer about “gum control”, most of the loudest have likely never even held or fired a gun, most of those criticizing Trump’s reaction to Iran’s continued poking and prodding of a vastly more powerful adversary probably have no strategic or tactical planning training or experience. They shoot from the lip to gain another 5 minutes of time in the fake news industry. Their opinions no more valid than mine would be if I were expounding on the correct methods for doing neurosurgery.

  2. Democrats can’t be so absolute stupid as to think this murder of American Troops and civilians is not justification to kill this piece of absolute scum of the earth. There is no reason for his existence on this planet. Why can’t the dimwit Democrats get their heads out of their arces and realize that the scum was planning on a mass attack and murder of more Americans. Perhaps they need to take a trip to the Mideast and stand on the front lines to see exactly what happens when these murdering mongrels are allowed to continue their carnage. Getting rid of the head of the snake is only part of the job, not to eliminated the rest of it or send it back into the hole from which it came is the next task. If the Democrats are against this then they are against American and support the enemy more than they support the United States. As far as notifying them ahead of time, they have proven over and over again they cannot be trusted with sensitive information. In WWII if they acted the way they do today they would have been charged with Sedition to Treason and dealth with appropriately.

    1. …oh, yes the DEMONocrats CAN be that absolutely stupid! And concerning about the killing of more Americans- they are not concerned about that because, the way DEMONocrats think, Americans can be replaced by the horde from MethHeCo; people more malleable and more liable to believe the DEMONocrat bullshit !

  3. Hey dems it really stinks don’t now that America sees just how bad of a job you have been doing for at least the past 20 years. When Trump stands up and backs and protects Americans and their interest something you could only steal and Rob from. He has proven you are a completely incompetent politicians…. BAHAHA!!!!

  4. I would expect this from The Democrats who try to be PASSIVE about keeping our TROOPS safe from this HORRIBLE murderer. These are ALSO the same folks who believe in WHOLESALE murder of our unborn BABIES as well. What did you EXPECT from TREASONISTIC TRAITORS? Patriotism? SWEARING in office to UPHOLD the U.S. Constitution while TRAMPLING on it?!? Team Trump and his allies 2020.

      1. Democrats appear to consistently chime in with the enemy, that burns our flag, and declares their hated toward us, even when given millions of American dollars. If you love the country you came from, do us a favor and go back to it and help them. We don’t need your disloyalty, or your propaganda here, to change the nation, that we love. It was declared in a Florida court deposition, that Omar was funded by the foreign country, Qatar, and pledged allegiance to the Turkish president. Then she and the other radicals have attacked our president. Don’t you see a problem with this people?? Qatar, also, funds the Arabic language with their influential information in some of our American school’s curriculum. Doesn’t that bother you more than our President helping America become great again??

  5. The Democrats are stupid as they wouldn’t do anything to protect America. None of these freaks should even be running and wasting our peoples time!

  6. there are no words that i can use to describe the revultion that i feel for the demoncraps. the founding fathers are spinning like drillbits in their grave to hear the STUPID,IDIOTIC ,NOISES emanating from their side of the isle . ANYTHING THESE FOOLS SAY IS TREASON. the muslim crows in the dem side all need to have a residence in either gitmo or the mausoleum. ALONG WITH THEIR BACKERS.. the repub’s that side with the communists should know that they are marked for removal in the next election.

  7. It is about time to let the democrats & the liberal Illegal foreign nationals we let in the USA under the guise of Obama refugees that the USA will not lay down & let the murder of American citizens stand like Obama & HRC did in Benghazi. . It time to eliminate & deport any & all who will not stand to protect the USA. Let us stand with cleaning out the swamp called congress. Gitmo is waiting for all of them

  8. Ex president Barack Obama gave money to Iran
    (They must be laughing he gave them over $100 millions to finance their military and making treat now that its new President Trump. Good for them Pres. Trump gave them Bomb.
    These Democrats doesn’t agree. They should be in that convoy and got what they deserved.
    I don’t like killing and I don’t like Stupid politician.

  9. demo-donkey communist are always operating in ” BAD FORM ” they are a disease of society , and will do so always. only one way to kill the demo-donkey communist disease , is one has to vote out as many as possible. They are just like any other disease , never cured but sometimes in remission but always comes back to haunt those that get weak. STAY STRONG GOP and MAGA 2020

  10. If you people that have been in politics and washington for so long would have take care of business instead of your own hinnies, we would not have to worry or do things like this. After all it was the last administration that flew them millions of out tax dollars to spend as they please and it was not to help america or americans.

    1. Yep…the fools from the left cannot grasp the teachings of Islam even when explained in detail which tells them if you’re not muslim you’re nothing but cattle and can be lied to and played for suckers which they are, and can be terminated as they will.

  11. In all my years, today I see that the Democrats think that the American citizens are nothing but brainwashed robots. So, it is a surprise to them to see that the American honest Citizens aren’t as dumb as they thought. The Democrats have done NOTHING for years except line their pockets with the TAXPAYERS money and getting bribes from our enemies. The do nothing Democrats should have taken action against these terrorists years ago. Instead, they allowed a Muslim to run our Country into the ground, filled their pockets with tainted money and craved POWER AND MONEY ABOVE THE LIVES IF THE PEOPLE THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT. THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO BE FOR THE CITIZENS, NOT RULERS OVER THE AMERICAN CITIZENS. THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE MOST CORRUPTED PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. THEY WOULD SELL THEIR OWN PARENTS FOR POWER.

  12. Is this why the criminal Democrat Party Mob wants to “grab our guns so we will not be able to defend ourselves or our families from Iran terrorist attacks here in America creating less American voters to vote against them in the 2020 election”!! Good reason to hang on to our guns, isn’t it????…….
