Time for Mainstream Media and Americans to stop supporting terrorists

 It is time for the mainstream media and Americans to stop supporting terrorists in the wake of the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani, master terrorist and the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary  Guard Corps on Jan. 2nd.

Russia and China are not mourning his death.  Neither are the nations of the Middle East.  Not much attention is given by mainstream media to the coalition of Arab nations working with Israel.  Yet, too many Americans and the mainstream media mourn his death along with seven others at the Baghdad Airport.   Why?

  • Soleimani was the most powerful Iranian general and answered only to Iran’s Supreme Leader.
  • His Quds Force were responsible for assassinations, terrorism and unconventional warfare that was exported globally.
  • Soleimani was linked to the deaths of over 600 U.S. service members in Iraq and 17 percent of all U.S. casualties in Iraq from 2003-2011.
  • He was planning imminent attacks on U.S. personnel according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
  • Soleimani was behind the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad which was coordinated with Kataib Hezbollah.
  • He was behind the deaths of hundreds of Iraqi demonstrators as they protested against Iranian influence in their own country.

It is time for Democrats as well as Never Trumpers (RINOs) to support their nation, their military service personnel and American interests abroad.  Your hatred for President Donald J. Trump blinds you.

It is refreshing to see a red-line that other national leaders know that the U.S. will enforce.  The days of appeasement are over.   In fact such foreign policies never worked.   The billions America paid Iran were used to promote worldwide terrorism.   We were the fools.   Not anymore.

It is time for the House impeachment game to go to the Senate and see true justice.  Our Commander and Chief has taken bold action.  It is the action of a brave leader who values American lives.  We should be proud to have such a leader in the White House.
