Why has the news media been so enamored with the Iranian terrorist Soleimani? Holly Williams of CBS called him inspiring, revered and a military genius. The New Yorker Magazine went gaga describing him as the “former body-builder with snowy-white hair and a dapper beard.” Others like Ryan Cooper lavished syrupy praise on the deadly bully while declaring George Bush, Dick Cheney and General Petreaus blood-drenched warmongers.
Given all that convoluted fawning, it’s no surprise to see Martha Raddatz in Tehran ominously warning America of retaliations while wailing Iranians were panning to the ABC cameras. Iran is a totalitarian dictatorship full of people who have been chanting “Death to America” for 40 years. They force their people into the streets to protest America but then shoot their people when the Mullahs don’t like what else they protest. Raddatz’s gullibility is no different than CNN reporter Jim Acosta in 2018 claiming the mass of humanity attempting to illegally cross our southern border represented no danger only a week later to have hundreds of males from that caravan storm the border, throwing rocks and being repelled by tear gas. See a pattern there by the news media?
Also consider some of the Democrats’ reactions to Soleimani. Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted about what she called the assassination of a foreign official. In 1984 Iran was officially designated by the U.S. government as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. But of course Omar wouldn’t be expected to know that being an immigrant and only three years old in 1984. But isn’t she a member of Congress?
Later the State Department identified Qud, the militant force headed by Soleimani, to be a terrorist organization. Omar’s pal, Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted Trump was trying to start a war. Remember the left used to say we started wars to control oil? Wake up Democrats, we are no longer dependent on Middle Eastern oil, no thanks to Barrack Obama, Joe Biden or Tom Steyer. So it’s not about their oil. It’s about the War on Terror and attacks on Americans.
Trump is not trying to start a war. Again these Democrats let their made up facts get in the way of the truth. Some may see this as still another article of impeachment they can withhold instead of the War on Terror which Democrats don’t like to talk about.
What they do like talking about is portraying Trump as the villain. Now instead of turning over the impeachment articles to the Senate, Nancy Pelosi wants to limit the president’s ability to battle terrorists, America’s enemies. But their political maneuvering could turn the bloodthirsty Soleimani into some kind of martyr. So what should we expect next from the Democrats? Will Speaker Pelosi invite Soleimani’s family to be their guests in the Congressional Gallery at the State of the Union Speech?

Thank you, Ralph Miller, for speaking the truth. And may I also add the fact that back on Dec. 22, 2011, a federal district court in Manhattan entered a ruling that revealed facts about Iran’s support of al Qaeda in the 9/11 attacks. U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels ruled that Iran and Hezbollah materially and directly supported al Qaeda in … the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and are legally responsible for damages.
The recently deceased terrorist (General Soleimani) was and has been a major influence in Iran’s military since before the 9/11 attacks. He did in fact lead an unconventional war against the U.S. called “Shaitan dar Atash” (Satan in Flames) He should have been taken out years ago.
