Iranians and Iraqis are Celebrating the Death of Quds Commander, Time to Bring Troops Home

Published

After the airstrike that killed Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani, Iranians and Iraqis are celebrating.

The U.S.’s action came in response to an Iranian-supported militia attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq.

According to Steve Watson of Summit News, Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, was a despised figure in Iran and Iraq among those persecuted by the Iranian government and its proxies.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo viewed both Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Soleimani as equal threats.

After news of the strike, President Trump tweeted an American flag without any comment:

Following news of Soleimani’s death, Iraqis were dancing in the streets:

One user stated, “Iranians who have been forced to live under ruthless military rule, took to Twitter to thank Trump with the hashtag #TnxPOTUS4Soleimani.”

Another tweeted, “As an Iranian, I wanted to thank you with all my heart @realDonaldTrump, for putting an end to #Soleimani. You just made the world a better place to live in#TnxPOTUS4Soleimani#FreeIran2020

Other reports suggested that US Marines captured high profile terrorist actors:

Trump was definitely placed in an awkward spot, but he had to defend the U.S. embassy staff from a potential repeat of the 1979 Tehran hostage crisis.

Nevertheless, Trump re-assured the world that he is not pursuing war.

There is no need for him to bow down to pressure from interest groups who have no desire in abiding by Trump’s America First agenda.

Hopefully, Trump pulls more troops out of the Middle East and focuses more attention on America and its southern border.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
