President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Iranian General Qassim Solemani in Baghdad Thursday, responding to attacks on the US Embassy in the country by Shia militia by striking their Iranian allies forcefully.
Soleimani was a commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, and had been a significant player in Middle Eastern geopolitics for years. Soleimani trained and equipped many of the Shia militias that fought American troops in Iraq after the 2003 invasion of the country.
He would go on to lead military operations as a representative of Iran in the Syrian Civil War, and the war against the ensuing spillover of the ISIS caliphate into Iraq.
Sources indicate that Soleimani was killed by incoming rocket projectiles as he disembarked from a plane arriving at the Baghdad airport.
It goes without saying to American patriots that the Shia Islamist militant was a villain. But it’s worth considering the broader national security considerations of the operation. Neocons may seek to use the operation as a launching pad for full-fledged regime change war in the Middle East.
However, it’s also worth noting that the Trump administration has taken decisive yet limited military action in the region that didn’t result in prolonged conflicts. President Trump has attacked Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime twice during his tenure, but Assad has secured a favorable, stable position in the nation’s seemingly endless and proxy-ridden civil war.
Tucker Carlson cautioned America First patriots on the implications of unchecked bellicosity against Iran on his show Thursday evening.

“The very people demanding action against Iran tonight…are the very same ones demanding that you ignore the invasion of America now in progress from the South.”

America First supporters should treat the operation to kill Soleimani with cautious, limited approval. The Iranian general is complicit in the grievous wounding and killing of U.S service members, and the United States government should take decisive measures to avenge them, regardless of the horribly flawed policy that deployed them to Iraq in the first place.
But by no means should the United States instigate a full-fledged war with Iran over an attempt by a mob to storm an embassy.

Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
