Biden, Bernie, Others Condemn Killing of Iranian Terrorist Chieftain

As the AP reports, the United States military launched a missile strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Al Quds force, the deadliest terrorist chieftain in the Middle East. Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and untold thousands of others in the untold thousands. His death is a victory on the level of Osama Bin Laden and Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.

The killing of the previous two terrorist leaders elicited universal, bi-partisan praise. Not so the execution of Soleimani. The UK Daily Mail explains.

“Top Democrats, while condemning Soleimani, warned that that the airstrike had the potential to set off a war, and chastised Trump for not seeking congressional approval. Joe Biden, the Democratic frontrunner, said in a statement that ‘President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”

“The Administration’s statement says that its goal is to deter future attacks by Iran, but this action almost certainly will have the opposite effect,” Biden said.

Bernie Sanders was just as direct.

“’Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars. Trump promised to end endless wars, but this action puts us on the path to another one.’”

Biden’s and Bernie’s sentiments were echoed by most of the other Democratic presidential candidates, including Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard. The theme running through the reaction from Democrats and some in the media is that Iran is likely to attempt revenge for the targeted killing of its most deadly terrorist strategist, therefore it would have been best to have allowed him to live.

The reaction of Democratic politicians was measured compared to some of the Hollywood left, Rose McGowen, an actress who is at the center of the #metoo movement, was especially eloquent on Twitter.

“Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. #Soleimani”

The tweet elicited outrage on social media, with demands that McGowen moves to Iran and suggestions that the Iranian regime would likely execute her for lewd behavior should she ever fall into its hands.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a different perspective on the killing of Soleimani. According to Hot Air, the Iranian general was taken out to forestall more terrorist actions.

“Did the US take out Qassem Soleimani over business as usual, or something much more acute? Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has begun laying out the case — in somewhat cryptic terms, necessarily — that the decision to kill Iran’s top commander and virtual #2 regime leader came as a necessity to save American lives from “imminent threats.” That assessment was ‘intelligence-based,’ Pompeo told CNN this morning, and the danger was specific to the region.”

Pompeo’s case is buttressed by the fact that Soleimani’s killing took place against a backdrop of the storming of the American embassy in Baghdad by pro-Iranian militia and rocket attacks directed against American service members. Soleimani met his end at the Baghdad airport. Clearly, analysts suggest, he was up to something and was likely directly coordinating the attacks on Americans, thus making him a legitimate target even without his decades-long history of murder and mayhem.

In other words, Trump ordered Soleimani’s death not to provoke a war with Iran but to forestall more violence in Iraq. Still, some analysts who are not partisan Democrats or hysterical actresses warn about Iranian revenge attacks. Some have even suggested that Iran might activate sleeper cells in the United States to launch terrorist actions in the American homeland.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty notes that the criticism of the hit on Soleimani derives from a false cliché in foreign policy.

“Last night you could see the conventional wisdom response assembling itself in real-time on Twitter. It was darkly amusing to see the number of supposedly serious foreign-policy thinkers and lawmakers who skipped over the pro forma, ‘Make no mistake, Suleimani was a bad guy who killed a lot of Americans, but . . . Within a few hours, that conventional wisdom had concealed: Sure, Suleimani was a bad guy with a lot of innocent blood on his hands, but what’s the endgame?’”

Geraghty went on to note that in foreign policy not “end game” actually exists, especially in the Middle East. Soleimani’s death may cause blowback, but it certainly inhibited Iran’s ability to cause mischief by taking one of the most deadly players in the art of terrorism off the board. That fact is something to think about whether one is a Democrat aspiring to the presidency, a talking head on TV, or an emotionally unstable Hollywood actress.

  1. If Biden and Bernie and all the others who are condemning the killing of this terrorist want to turn their backs on America, go let them campaign for a job in Iran! They aren’t wanted here.

    1. Why are we still getting updates on these old farts who’ll never be president, aren’t qualified to run anything as important as America and thus aren’t relevant? These loony buffoons think the American people are stupid and believe all their socialistic BULLS**T and will elect them president. About time for people to stop wasting their time and campaign contributions on these losers who along with the other liberals running as ‘dumbocraps ‘have nothing positive to offer America other than ‘free this and free that’ to all the leeches and deadbeats, care of the hardworking overtaxed American public.. isn’t this ‘dog and pony show’ known as the ‘dumbocrap’ debates and campaign getting tiresome? I along with a lot of other Americans think so but hey, these clownish goons are only good for a few laughs at that and God only knows we all could use a few laughs in these trying times. The scary thing though, there are still foolish clueless morons, especially in California who keep believing all their lies, smoke and mirrors and BULLS**T. This all while living in the former golden state that now resembles the west costs version of the third world, thanks to the liberals and the fools who keep these thieving liars in office. You’d think the residents of California, where I live would have learned their lessons and gotten smart on the liberals but evidently some folks are slow learners and like paying some of the highest costs of living and taxes to live in the recently monikered ‘doo doo’; capital of the USA. It’s either the above or they’ve been smokin’ the wrong kind of weed, hard to figure out which one. Inquiring minds want, need and deserve to know why this BULLS**T goes on and on like the Energizer Bunny.

    2. All the contrary talk democrats have nothing to look in AMERICAN White House and in AMERICA. They are TERRORIST not DEMOCRATS,and in HELL with all of them ANIMAL DEMOCRATS do not care for OUR SONS HO was keeled from the IRAN TERRORIST ,the DEMOCRATS have fell sorry for them NOT FOR OUR SONS AND FATHERS .I HOPE coming the day when YOU OLD BESTIAL PELOSI have to give account to GOD or me by after that so much bed things what you did I hope you got in HELL ,there is you place.

  2. These Democrats are traitors and their comments make Trump’s job much more difficult and encourage Iran to attack and build a nuclear bomb. They need to be defeated ASAP and run out of office before they do more harm.

  3. I just love it when the very radical left continue to destroy themselves with their treason chatter.. They love illegals more than American’s, they love our enemies more than American’s and they support a full socialist position for all American’s.. Doesn’t get any better than that..

  4. Those Presidential candidates who have opposed President Trump’s action in defense of the US have also given evidence that they are not fit to be President, just as Obama gave ample evidence that he was unfit to be President during his 8 LONG years in the White House.

  5. Well I thi k we can all agree that you liberal / democrats are not even close to rational anymore. When yyyou care more about trying to pretend the president is bad then you do about the lives of your fellow americans you are mentally Ill.

    You are in desperate need of some mental help.

  6. There is no excuse for their thought process. America is 110% behind our President we are not just stupidly following this man. We all have our eyes wide open and can use our brains to think things through. Hopefully they will soon all be replaced with people who paramEdics to come first.

  7. It is incomprehensible to me that American citizens cannot see the extent of the international terrorist movement, so much of it controlled by the Iranians and the support they gain from the liberal press liars and left wing elements in our society. I hope and pray they begin to recognize our way of life is severely threatened.

  8. Should have destroyed them all so there could be no retaliation! Go get them Trump! We stand behind our POTUS and if you don’t it’s time to get the hell out of the U.S. And thanks Mc Gowen for showing us that you nut’s in Hollywood will never change.

  9. The DEmocrats are the fifth column (like the Nazis) in this country. They love Iran more than they love US. All who complain about killing of this terrorist should go to live in Iran. This murderer killed about 600 American troops, maimed horribly troops so they do not have legs, arms, eyes, brain and have to go through life with these horrific injuries because this murderer put IUD’s into the ground so when our troops stepped on that ground with the IUD underneath, they were horribly injured for life. Their lives are a shamble forever. The murderous general met death immediately. He should have been tortured, had his head cut off, maybe fingers, leg and kicked in the head. But our fifth column Democrats love him more than they love our troops that went into battle because of incompetent presidents as Carter, Clinton, Bush, Obama and Lyndon Johnson with Vietnam. They wasted our precious treasure-our brave troops. Meanwhile they complain while collecting millions of dollars from donors, kickbacks, foreign countries, lolbbyists. They do not give a damn about our brave military. I say the hell with them and I want to congratulate Pres. Trump for killing this murderous murderer. His murder was too quick. He should have been tortured.

    1. Exactly! They are what use to be known as the sissy’s. Make peace don’t start a war..let them continue killing our troops. I think that they make way too much and that all that waste of money that they do on stupid impeachment just to get a democrat in office in 2020 should be cut in half and give it to our troops for a job that will save our lives and our children’s life. And here’s a good idea since they are against the wall let them get off their lazy butts and forever non ending B.S. and place them at the borders so they can work for the other half of their money! Well not really a good idea seeing as they would be able to illegally pay to come in. Ha Ha I didn’t think that thru forsure!!!

  10. What did you EXPECT from TREASONISTIC TRAITOR Democrats? Patriotism? DEMOCRACY and TRUTH?!? If so, “thou expecteth TOO much”. Don’t VOTE for these TRAITORS if you VALUE your COUNTRY! Thank you POTUS Trump for a JOB well done on these TERRORISTS. Make some more TARGET PRACTICE out of a LOT more of them – you have my EXPRESS permission – One Grateful Patriot.. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  11. The Democrats have been waiting for more than 200 years to screw America and it took letting a fraud and phony obama to become president who opened the door to where we are today. These bastards should be considered America’s number one enemy and must be driven out of office. Putting a bounty on our President’s head should draw outrage, instead, the Socialist Democrats are applauding Iran. The country better be prepared if anything should happen to our President because the fall out will be a disaster.

  12. So Iranian Terrorist has a get-out off Jail Card after he kills Americans Soldiers and we can’t kill him because he is a Iran General and Iran can start a War against us which it would be over within Two days. Wow thank God we have a President whom gives a F _ _ K and stand be-hide our Military not this POS PC Liberal Communist Democrats

  13. At least Trump doesn’t send Money to Iran like Muslim Brother BHO did and still Americans want to Vote for that other POS Joey Biden that kiss Mulsim BHO ass just so he could be VP, wake up USA they want to implement Mulsim BHO agenda at all cost and have Power over every American which is why they want to disarm you and use any type of Killing like in Schools OR use Climate as a second reason anything to make USA a Poor nation as possible so the more you need from the Government the more they can control you it that simple.

  14. Liberals just keep proving THEY are the Enemies of America / seditious treasonous criminals – ALL the liberal “leaders” & profoundly stupid libtard voters ! & belong in GITMO with the REST of the TERRORISTS

  15. If Qassem Solemaini had campaigned for nomination for the Socialist/Liberal/Demwit President, Biden and Bernie would be clamoring for his Veep! The fools here love their terrorists!

  16. Seriously??? You idiots wanted more Americans to be brutalized and tortured and murdered in COLD blood – like Benghazi??? REALLY??? OK – then – YOU go over there and chat with these savages! They’ve been murdering innocent people for years. What the hell is the matter with you???? AND – what’s wrong with your constituents that they bother to cast a vote for someone who holds their lives in such little esteem???

  17. Comrade in arms, Bernie Biden Buttface Screaming Elizabeth, all will criticize the President but none of those a$$holes will tell you how they would have handled the same situation, not one of them. These snowballs don’t have the balls to do the same thing Donald did, and they never will

  18. If they love the terrorists so much, pack their bags for them and send them to Iran and to hell with them. Thing is they try childishly to jump on anything he does to stir up trouble. All it is is sedition and treason and I want to know when they’re going to be held accountable..

  19. Ship all of the left to iran that is where they need to be all are criminals.
    Evilevilevil TRUMP is the GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER VOTE RED
    SAVE AMERICA VOTE TRUMP SAVE AMERICA VOTE TRUMP

  20. Obama kills the great Muslim icon Osama Bin Laden and that is okay by the Democrats. Trump kills a murderous Iranian general and the Democrats say it is bad. Make up your minds you Democrats and stop being so damned partisan.

  21. Joe Biden is a left wing fool. He is very adept at shaking down corrupt governments for the Biden Family and delivering pallets of $US money to terrorist regimes in the middle of the night but will not be mistaken for a patriot. Joe Biden is clueless and corrupt
