Top Iranian General Killed in US Airstrike

Top Iranian General Killed in US Airstrike

Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was killed Friday during an airstrike ordered by President Trump.

As leader of the IRGC’s elite Quds Force, Soleimani was held personally responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and coalition members – including the death of an American contractor last week. Soleimani was said to be planning future attacks on American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.

“President Trump made… a serious decision which was necessary,” said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, describing Soleimani as the ‘primary motivator for an imminent attack.’ Pompeo says he hopes Iran will “take actions consistent with what normal nations do,” but warned the “entire United States government is prepared to respond appropriately.”

“President Trump deserves all the credit for acting swiftly, forcefully, and decisively,” added Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Israel stands with the United States in its just struggle for peace, security, and self-defense.”

According to witnesses, the airstrike hit Soleimani shortly after he left the Baghdad International Airport in a convoy. Also killed in the attack was Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahi al-Mohandes, leader of a group of militias loyal to Iran. Mohandes had been accused of organizing the attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week.

Iran and Iraq have both vowed revenge for the airstrike, with Iraq’s Prime Minister calling a parliamentary session to decide whether to kick US troops out of the country.

“After this crime, we will deal with the American forces as an occupying force,” promised Iraqi lawmaker Naeem al-Aboudi, describing Friday’s airstrike as an ‘act of war.’

“For the blood of the martyr Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the entire American military presence will be eliminated,” promised Qais al-Khazali, leader of the Iraqi militia Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia. “For the blood of the martyr Soleimani, Israel will be wiped out.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry also condemned the attack, describing it as “fraught with consequences for regional peace and stability.”

The Pentagon will be sending 3,500 US troops to Kuwait in anticipation of revenge attacks, bringing the total number of American soldiers in the area to 80,000. The US has also urged all American citizens in Iraq to depart the country immediately.

    That bunch of rag headed camel jockeys have been screaming, “Death to America” for years. Since I’m an American, I take what they scream quite personal. So perhaps it’s time to turn a couple of boomers loose on Iran with their rockets that have multiple nuclear warheads. And don’t think for one second I say that lightly since like so many others I’ve had an up close and personal look at war. It’s just time to stand and be counted instead of being the laughing stock of the world like when Obama committed treason by aiding and abetting the enemy when he sent all that unmarked money in the middle of the night in an unmarked plane to Iran.

      That act by Obama was an act that should have had him impeached, and removed form office as it aided and abetted the enemy. What he did was totally illegal, as Congress had a hold on the money, not him.

    One must realize the old saying, “If you live by the sword, you die by the sword”. In this case, the sword came from the sky and was guided by the hand of God so strike down a cold blooded killer. Anybody that thinks this action was wrong is not an American, is not a patriot, doesn’t have the common since to realize the man is responsible for killing hundreds of American, injuring for life thousands of others, and is responsible for killing thousands of civilians to include women and children. Perhaps these same people who have any doubt that eliminating this Military Major General, who was killed legally and appropriately, should look in a mirror and ask themselves, on who’s side do they stand? If they support the enemies continued slaughter and terrorism, then they themselves are the enemy from within.

    Soleimani had to go. Period. That the other Iranian was killed as well is just that much more reason to congratulate President Trump. Now, when Iran starts to “punish” the US for this act of protecting not only ourselves but Iraqi citizens as well, who’s next? I personally favor about a half dozen of these missiles decending on the Iranian Parliament and residences of ALL Iranian politicians and leaders that subscribe to the radical government of Iran’s policies. Wipe. Them. Out. One. And. All. And, if the Iranian government persists in threatening Israel and the US or anyone else in the world, do it again and again until they get the message loud and clear! You can call me whatever you want, the only thing that these heathens understand if force. Brute force.

    One other thing, if the Iranians try to use their “navy” to initiate trouble in the Persian Gulf or anywhere else, sink them all. Same for their air force. If at all possible, take out all their commanders of every service branch as well.
