Iranian General Qassim Solemani Killed in Iraq Airstrike After Embassy Attack

Soleimani was one of Iran’s highest ranking military officials.

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.

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.

President Trump tweeted a picture of an American flag in the aftermath of the operation Thursday night.

YUGE: DHS Creating Statue Defense Task Force to Defend National Heritage Against Leftist Thuggery

Finally getting serious?

Published

on

The Department of Homeland Security has created a law enforcement task force to prevent the destruction and vandalism of statues and monuments commemorating the heritage and history of the United States. The task force was announced in a statement from Acting Secretary Chad Wolf on Wednesday.

DHS is answering the President’s call to use our law enforcement personnel across the country to protect our historic landmarks,” said Wolf. “We won’t stand idly by while violent anarchists and rioters seek not only to vandalize and destroy the symbols of our nation, but to disrupt law and order and sow chaos in our communities.”

A lackadaisical federal response to the rounds of statue destruction and cultural vandalism has enabled left-wing rioters to destroy statues with impunity. Only recently did federal authorities begin to signal that they intent to start seriously punishing criminal suspects who destroy images of Presidents and great American men.

The Department of Justice announced late last week that four men suspected in a failed vandalism attempt targeting the statue of former President Andrew Jackson in Washington DC’s Lafayette Square have been indicted on federal charges of destruction of federal property.

DOJ Charges Four Men in Vandalism Attempt on Andrew Jackson Statue, One Arrested

President Donald Trump signed an executive order late last month mandating that federal prosecutors assign stricter penalties to left-wing cultural criminals seeking to destroy statues and images commemorating the national heritage of the United States.

It’s likely that when the punks of ANTIFA realize that they’ll stand to spend years in federal prison for criminal acts of vandalism targeting American heritage, they’ll back down into the cracks of society from whence they came.
