Representative Ilhan Omar accused President Trump of trying to create a “distraction” by killing General Qassim Soleimani in an attempt to ignite a war with Iran.
I don’t know what the hell she is doing but I guarantee you I’d be shocked as shit to see her re-elected after this statement. I understand the point she wants to make but it comes off completely sympathetic to the Iranian terrorist. President Trump did the right thing and it was the right call, people were dying and threatened to be killed. In the video below you will see people celebrating the death of the terroristic general.
President Trump had threatened Tuesday to retaliate against Iran after militia groups backed by the country attempted to storm the U.S. embassy in Iraq. The president tweeted out an American flag after news of his killing was confirmed.
The State Department announced that Iranian and Iranian-backed forces led by Soleimani were responsible for killing 608 U.S. troops during the Iraq War.
Soleimani took over the external operations wing of the IRGC in 1998 and was known as one of the most powerful military leaders in the Middle East. The State Department believes he was the masterminded behind the major military operations, bombings and assassinations that accounted for at least 17 percent of all U.S. personnel deaths in Iraq between 2003 and 2011, Fox News reports.
There are many on the left while they applaud this killing many of them have made this a political talking point and it’s not going to get them any leverage.
