Up In Smoke

Meet Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. Oh wait, you can’t, since there’s not much left to him.

You see, Soleimani was a despicable savage who ordered the murders of many American soldiers and civilians. He was also the architect of the attack on the American Embassy in Iraq on New Year’s Eve. Since Barack Obama is no longer president, the current POTUS decided to take swift and decisive action.

President Donald Trump ordered a U.S. military airstrike Thursday that killed Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, in an airstrike near Baghdad’s airport, the Pentagon said in a statement.

“At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization,” the Pentagon said in a statement.

It’s so refreshing to have a president who doesn’t jet off to fundraisers while Islamists are trying to murder members of our embassies.

The Pentagon said that Soleimani was “actively developing plans” to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of Kata’ib Hezbollah, known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an Iraqi paramilitary group that attempted to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Dec. 31, 2019, was also reportedly killed in the drone strike. The Pentagon said in its statement that Soleimani directed the attack on the embassy.

The best way to gauge the success of this strike is to see what out betters in Hollywood are saying. For example, Rose McGowan tweeted, “Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. #Soleimani”

I’d say this strike was a freakin’ home run!
