Everyone Is Shook After U.S. Strike Kills Iranian Leader Qasem Soleimani, Trump Outed His Possible Reasons For It YEARS Ago

​ ​ ​ ​

When you do clownery, it comes back to bite you.  Folks fear a war may be on the horizon after President Trump ordered the U.S. to attack Iranian leader Qasem Soleimani.  Meanwhile, Americans are slamming Trump for the disproportional strike and the prediction he made years ago while coming for Obama that makes him look even worse.

 

Folks are SHOOK after the Pentagon and the U.S. military issued an airstrike near Baghdad’s airport that killed Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force unit, last night. And rightfully so.  The attack could cause major conflict across the Middle East. Not only that, killing Iran’s most notorious military commander and spy could possibly start a war with the U.S. & our allies (whom we've strained relations with ever since Trump took office).

 

After the strike, and without any Presidential address to the nation, Congress or our allies beforehand, President Trump took to Twitter.  He posted the American flag, which was his way of letting the world know the U.S. was behind the drone attack.

 

 

After he sent his tweet, it was confirmed by news outlets that the strike had presidential authorization.

While almost no one here in America supports a man like Soleimani, who has been behind the death of American soldiers and US embassy attacks, there are reasons that Presidents like Obama and W. chose not to kill him but to make more strategic moves to tie Iran's hands.   Retaliation from a country like Iran could be deadly on both sides, seeing that their affinity for nuclear war is known, and there are better ways to mitigate our issues with them.  This is chess, not checkers.  A leader like Trump, though, likely doesn't know how to play either.  The air strike seemed to be more of a flex - not to be confused with BDE - than a strategic and necessary move. And we might pay dearly for it.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei - the country’s most powerful leader – took to Twitter this morning to let the world know they WILL #SeekRevenge:

 

 

“His efforts & path won’t be stopped by his martyrdom, by God’s Power, rather a #SevereRevenge awaits the criminals who have stained their hands with his & the other martyrs’ blood last night. Martyr Soleimani is an Intl figure of Resistance & all such people will seek revenge,” he tweeted.

According to multiple media reports, Iranian leaders are vowing “harsh retaliation.” Threats against the U.S. are being made on Twitter and folks are shook.

 

 

The drone attack comes after several attacks against the U.S. and its allies via proxies for months, according to CNN.

They are accused of hitting Saudi oilfields. A US drone before that. Oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. And this week they directed attacks at the US Embassy in Baghdad, the US says."

The Defense Department said Soleimani “was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”

Former Vice President/ Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reacted to the U.S. airstrike, warning it could leave the U.S. “on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East.”

 

 

 

Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders also reacted to Trump's "dangerous escalation" that will lead us to war:

 

 

Democratic presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren & Andrew Yang also responded via Twitter:

 

 

 

 

Queen Maxine Waters (D-CA) issued a lengthy statement, which read in part:

“I’m concerned that the now impeached president’s actions may have been predicated in politics rather than sound foreign policy. In 2011, he tweeted, ‘In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran,’ and in 2012, he again tweeted, ‘Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate.’ Perhaps Donald Trump believes that if he drags the country into war, the American people and Congress will rally behind him. Perhaps he thinks that war is a diversionary tactic. Perhaps he thinks it will drown out the criticisms of his scandal-plagued administration and protect him from removal by the Senate.

Donald Trump is dangerous, and his actions could have dire consequences for the safety and security of Americans. He has cozied up with dictators like Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin, shielded for a Saudi regime that murdered a journalist, turned his back on our Kurdish allies in the fight against ISIS in Syria, and isolated our western allies. He has lied more than 15,000 times, and he cannot be trusted with matters as important as war and peace.

 

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio responded to the attack, saying he fears for the city of New York and our nation after the government “effectively declared war” without the people’s vote.

 

NYC is a potential target, so Mayor de Blasio said the NYPD will take immediate steps to protect key locations across the city following the death of Iran’s top general.

 

 

 

 

The news of Trump igniting a war against Iran isn't shocking to some. He seemingly told on himself nine years ago, while accusing President Barack Obama of possibly starting a war with Iran because he's too "weak and ineffective" to negotiate and also needs a boost before re-election. Sound familiar?

 

 

Funny how the tables turn. He also tweeted the same thing:

 

 

Obama did not attack Iran, but instead negotiated and entered into a nuclear deal, one that Trump trashed ever since it was installed in 2015.  Until, he did the same thing himself.  Trump basically re-affirmed the same criteria in his "new nuclear deal" after withdrawing from the one Obama created.  Spite makes us do weird things.

History always repeats itself, especially when people don't know and take heed to their history. It seems Trump is taking a page from former President Bill Clinton's impeachment blueprint. People are sharing a picture of this New York Times article accusing Trump - who's currently involved in an impeachment process -  of doing the same thing Clinton did in the 90s:

 

In December 1998, the New York Times ran a cover story on the delay of the impeachment vote on Bill Clinton due to Clinton's launch of an "Iraq air strike."

Peep the comparisons below:

As of this afternoon, 3500 additional American troops have been deployed to Iraq for "protection" in dealing with their neighbor Iran.
