Welcome To the Second American Century

Whoop! There it is.

That is correct: President Trump ordered the drone strike that took out Qassim Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s Quds Force. He was at the Baghdad airport (foreign country) orchestrating more terrorist attacks against  the American Embassy (sovereign American territory) – all of which translates to an act of war on Soleimani’s part. Just because previous American presidents didn’t see fit to respond to said acts of war does not mean it is “illegal” to do so.

And good grief. please tell me the Left and the Media (I know, I know - redundant) are not rooting for Iran on this one? Is that too much to hope for? Of course, because Orange Man Bad.

So predictable: Ilhan Omar Attacks Trump For Killing Top Iranian Terrorist, and Ms.NBC’s crack journo team opined that “if” this was the “right decision, it was the wrong Commander-in-Chief.’ What on earth does that even mean?

Ms.NBC mourns the death of a terrorist and wrings their hands over the President’s decisive action

Allow me to interpret: “no matter what President Trump does we will hate it.” This position is best illustrated by ‘Shameless’ Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy’s FAST one-eighty on his criticism of Trump’s response to Iran aggression after reports Soleimani was killed in airstrike:

Got it? It’s not illegal unless it’s Donald J. Trump. Because…well, you know.
