Democrats Attack Trump For Airstrike On Iranian General

The Iranian general was in Iraq to help foment violence against Americans. He’s the man behind the woundings and deaths of hundreds of American soldiers. A real bad guy from a very bad Islamist regime. Trump put Americans first.

2020 Democrats condemn Soleimani before attacking Trump for ordering the airstrike

Several Democrats vying for the White House in 2020 condemned Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani before taking aim at President Trump for ordering the deadly airstrike that will escalate tensions in the region and was done so without Congress’ approval.

Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that by ordering the airstrike Trump “just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”

In a lengthy statement, Biden said Trump “owes the American people an explanation of the strategy and plan to keep our troops and embassy personnel, our people and our interests, both here at home and abroad, and our partners throughout the region and beyond.

“No American will mourn Qassem Soleimani’s passing. He deserved to be brought to justice for his crimes against American troops and thousands of innocents throughout the region. He supported terror and sowed chaos,” the statement read.

“None of that negates the fact that this is a hugely escalatory move in an already dangerous region. The Administration’s statement says that its goal is to deter future attack by Iran, but this action almost certainly will have the opposite effect.”

Biden also questioned whether the Trump administration considered the “second- and third-order consequences” of Soleimani’s death that now puts the U.S. “on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East.”

Hmm, I seem to remember Joe’s old boss starting a conflict in Libya without Congressional approval and without forethought as to the future of the country while he was flying to South America. Did Joe complain? But, see, this is all part of the “measured responses” from Democrats, who are so Trump Deranged that they have to find fault with taking out a killer of Americans because Trump ordered it.

And here’s more excitable reaction from them

Do they even know who Soleimani is and what he’s done, and what he planned to do? Excitable Amy Klobuchar questions the timing

“Qassem Soleimani was responsible for directing Iran’s destabilizing action in Iraq, Syria, and throughout the Middle East, including attacks against U.S. forces. But the timing, manner, and potential consequences of the Administration’s actions raise serious questions and concerns about an escalating conflict,” her statement said.

And demands Trump talk to Congress

“Our immediate focus needs to be on ensuring all necessary security measures are taken to protect U.S. military and diplomatic personnel in Iraq and throughout the region. The Administration needs to fully consult with Congress on its decision-making, response plans, and strategy for preventing a wider conflict.”

This would be the same Congress full of TDS infused Democrats who want him impeached for Politics 101.

Speaking to MSNBC, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said, “We have a president who had a failure in his Iranian policy, who has no larger strategic plan and who has made that region less stable and less safe.”

Where was Spartacus when ISIS grew to be a major player while Obama ignored the Arab Spring, the Iranian Green uprising, and blew up Libya, leading to Benghazi?

Um, the president can’t declare war, only Congress can. So, fail for Marianne. Further, Trump is the commander in chief, and can order airstrikes.

Of course, Ilhan Omar is siding with Iran. She doesn’t even need TDS to do it. Those are her people.

We’re now waiting for other top Democrats to chime in, along with the editorial boards of places like the NY Times, Washington Post, and LA Times, which will surely be measured while condemning Trump. There are plenty of Democrat voters who are essentially defending Iran because of their Trump hatred, but, I have to end the post somewhere.

    Precise “tit for tat” avoids the war that IRGC wants to detract from the expensive failures in Syria and Yemen, the corruption and the faltering economy in Iran. And this President isn’t interested in the skim from another pallet full of Yankee dollars.

    The provocateur just learned that his seat was actually ON the President’s chess board.

    “Shah Matt” (I think it is spelled in Persia.)

    From Biden, just amazing-“did the Trump administration consider the second or third order consequences..”. You mean as opposed to first asking did the Iranians consider the consequences of attacking the Embassy?

    • formwiz says:

      One presumes the second or third order consequences like Gropin’ Joe wanting us to cut and run from Iraq or how it looks to abandon our people to the crazies.

  3. Obama-appointed judge issues an injunction against Trump, forcing him to return the bomb to it’s rails and brings Quds commander back to life. Calls the airstrike “unconstitutional over-reach”.

  4. formwiz says:

    This guy was the mastermind of Quds and all that was left was one hand.

    This is how Reagan put Qadaffy in his box (until Zippy and the Hildabeast screwed things up) and you can bet news of this is all over Iran.
