Nikki Haley Gloats About Iran Escalation After Joining Boeing’s Board
After the U.S. government took out Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani last week, neoconservatives are hungry for further escalation with Iran.
Of those calling for increased pressure is former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
On the day of Soleimani’s death, Haley tweeted, “Qassem Soleimani was an arch terrorist with American blood on his hands. His demise should be applauded by all who seek peace and justice. Proud of President Trump for doing the strong and right thing. @realDonaldTrump”

On Sean Hannity’s show on Monday, December 6, 2020, Haley continued sounding off on Soleimani’s death.
What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed,” Haley stated. “They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes. But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen.”
She added, “The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”
Haley was gushing about Soleimani’s death, other observers were quick to point out a potentially larger agenda that Haley is pushing.
John Durant, the author of the Paleo Manifesto, reminded his followers on January 6, 2020 of the potential conflict of interest that Haley would be in by advocating for further escalation in Iran.
He tweeted, “I don’t want to hear anyone on Boeing’s board pushing for war.”

Durant is referring to Haley joining the board of directors of aerospace company Boeing in 2019.
Boeing has built a reputation for being an integral part of the military-industrial complex.
The multinational company has recently come under fire for crashes of their 737 MAX airliners that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people.
It’s no secret that Haley is playing the long game by placing herself in the spotlight so that she can have the leg up on the competition during the 2024 presidential elections.
Given her role at Boeing, Haley would be delighted to maintain America’s global democratic crusades abroad.
President Trump should completely ignore anything Haley says and stick to the restrained foreign policy principles that won him the 2016 elections.
