Last week, President Trump ordered a drone strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasam Soleimani. He was a terrorist. The commander of Quds force, Soleimani was a bringer of death to the region. It’s a good thing a hellfire missile turned him into an ashtray. He can burn in hell. There are at least 600 American servicemembers’ deaths that can be linked to him. And yet, the liberal media and the Democrats appear to be the only ones, besides the hardline Iranians, who are sad over his death. You’d think a hellfire missile vaporized Santa Claus, Mother Teresa, or Gandhi. People seem to forget this was a bad guy. That’s how deadly Trump Derangement Syndrome has become. Killing terrorists is a bad thing…because Trump did it.
This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) January 8, 2020
They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran.
You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response! https://t.co/sGWtwXuNDT

What exactly does Ilhan Omar "feel ill" about?— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) January 8, 2020
That we took out a terrorist who killed at least 603 Americans and was plotting more?
That deterrence works and we suffered ZERO U.S. casualties?
That the days of tolerating Iran's terror are over?
Who is "sophomoric"?— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) January 8, 2020
Democrats' unhinged opposition to @realDonaldTrump has led them to take the side of terrorists
They argue a terrorist who has killed 603 Americans, just killed another, tried to raid our Embassy, and was plotting to kill more, should still be alive
For Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), she made a total fool of herself, saying that the whole situation made her “ill.” And that she gets stricken with post-traumatic stress disorder due to the conversations about war. That’s facetious. No one gets PTSD by having a conversation. Then again, she’s a liberal, one of the most fragile lifeforms on the planet. There is no war. No war is happening. Iran is standing down. The missile attack was a way to save face. It’s nothing compared to what we did by killing Soleimani. Even Time magazine editor Ian Bremmer, no Trump fan, said this was a win for the president. Red lines and deterrence were reestablished. Ironically, this move by Trump allowed for a diplomatic channel to be reopened. Oh, and she thought the sanctions Trump has proposed against Iran were not appropriate (via The Hill):
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Wednesday condemned President Trump's decision to impose further economic sanctions on Iran, saying that the move was not a "measured response" in the wake of escalating tensions in the Middle East.
During a public address from the White House, Trump announced that the U.S. would implement "punishing" sanctions on the Iranian government as it evaluated a response to Tehran's overnight missile attack on Iraqi military bases housing U.S. troops. The attack followed a U.S. airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, one of the most powerful officials in Iran and the leader of its elite Quds Force.
Trump said that no American lives were lost in the Iranian attacks and added that Iran appeared to "be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world."
Omar, who has been outspoken on the conflict between the U.S. and Iran, argued on Twitter that sanctions are "economic warfare" that make "no sense."
Yeah, this is the party that we should trust with our national security. They think killing terrorists is problematic, maybe even criminal, and sanctioning state sponsors of terror doesn’t make any sense. They really are working hard at giving Trump a second term.
