The drone strike that took out Iranian general and top terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleimani, was long overdue. Soleimani was known as the “shadow commander” a befitting title for his ability to quietly spread his brand of terrorism all across the Middle East by establishing a proxy network of terrorist organizations all directed from Tehran.
The embassy attack in Baghdad orchestrated by Soleimani was his latest and last attempt to kill Americans, coming ironically only days after the siege and a few miles away near the Baghdad International Airport. Then a U.S. air-strike finally ended the life of the 62-year old Iranian general, along with Abu Mahdi al Muhandis – head of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces.
President Trump had received INTEL that Soleimani was in the process of unleashing his proxy campaign of assorted terrorists, targeting American assets somewhere in the Middle East and assassinating an American diplomat.
He was already responsible for almost a decades worth of murders, roadside bombs, beheadings, assassinations, and mayhem, targeting American contractors and businessmen. This includes over 600 American soldiers and military personal, along with thousands of innocent Muslims.
While the vast majority of American loving patriots celebrated the news that an evil disport was eliminated from the face-of-the-earth, those within the liberal establishment cringed groveled and apologized to the leaders of the Iranian regime.
Actress Rose McGowan breathlessly took to Twitter moments after the news flashed across our TV screens that this evil man was blown to smithereens.
The screwball actress who claims to be a Republican posted a photo of an Iranian flag with an accompanying message “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.”

Her ridiculous tweet was greeted with a stunning backlash, which prompted the crazed actress to double down.
“F*** your freedom and shove it up your #MAGA a**!”

Don’t know about you but I feel very secure in the knowledge that, as things heat up with Iran, we have a stable genius at the helm.

In congress, of course, there were those liberal Democrats who first qualified the fact that General Soleimani was a despot, and then went into their orchestrated political talking points, making sure to hit all the right notes.
“Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question.”
“The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”
— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) January 3, 2020
That rhetorical question was immediately answered by Republican Senator Ben Sasse, who quickly praised the Commander-in-Chief’s decision to finally rid the United States of Soleimani.
“This is very simple: General Soleimani is dead because he was an evil bastard who murdered Americans,” Sasse said in a statement. “The President made the brave and right call, and Americans should be proud of our service-members who got the job done. Tehran is on edge – the mullahs have already slaughtered at least a thousand innocent Iranians – and before they lash out further they should know that the U.S. military can bring any and all of these IRGC butchers to their knees.”
What the left fails to realize is that President Trump isn’t Obama air-dropping $1.7 billion dollars in cash to the terrorist régime, which was used to continue its proxy wars, ironically against the United States, killing American soldiers.
Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, perhaps said it best at the time.
“Sending the world’s leading state sponsor of terror pallets of untraceable cash isn’t just terrible policy,” Royce said. “It’s incredibly reckless, and it only puts bigger targets on the backs of Americans. … This cash bonanza has emboldened Iran’s radical regime, and undermined America’s national security.”
