Enough with the leftist hissy fits. Blowing up Soleimani was a no-brainer
This merciless bloodstained fanatic had been slaughtering Americans, Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians and anyone else he could reach for decades.

The United States blew up a really evil terrorist and the left had a hissy fit. Ridiculous. But of all the criticisms that have rained down on Donald Trump, I think the most foolish is oh oh now you made them mad.

It wasn’t an easy call. Which is the most foolish, I mean. Blowing the guy up was a no-brainer. Qassem Soleimani was a merciless bloodstained fanatic who’d been slaughtering Americans, Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians and anyone else he could reach for decades. But NBC immediately trembled “Iran’s options for retaliation against the U.S. and Americans span the globe.”

Yaaaaaah! They’re coming for us. Likewise Maclean’s knee-jerked “The U.S. has gone rogue, and Canada may be caught in the crossfire.” See, our training mission in Iraq might shut down without U.S. logistical support. (Not that we’re self-absorbed.)

Other dumb comments included Michael Moore’s tweet: “Hello fellow Americans. Do you know this man? Did you know he was your enemy? What? Never heard of him? By the end of today you will be trained to hate him.” Because the U.S. is Oceania from 1984 or something.

The New York Times whined “Democrats Question Timing of Strike” as if they should have blasted him when they didn’t know where he was instead of when he carelessly stepped out of the shadows. As for it being a violation of international law, unlike his 30-year terrorist career, to its credit NBC noted that Barack Obama ordered more than 500 such airstrikes, killing thousands. But back to practicalities. What exactly is Iran going to do now that Trump made it mad?
