The Dem Presidential Candidates' Reactions to Soleimani Death Are As Bad As You'd Imagine

Among the Democratic presidential candidates who have weighed in on the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani and Kataib Hezbollah leader Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, not a single one offered any praise for the move to take out the world's "arch terrorist" -- a man who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, was "actively developing plans" to attack even more Americans in the region.

Instead, the general consensus was to blame President Trump rather than Iran for the danger that exists, calling the operation “reckless” and tantamount to tossing “a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox,”—per Joe Biden, who's been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades” and was a "no" on taking out Osama bin Laden. Others like Sen. Bernie Sanders, Andrew Yang, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar worried it would escalate conflict with Iran and push the U.S. closer to another war, while Sen. Cory Booker lamented that the president “has no strategic plan” to deal with Iran.
