On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a stand for brutal terrorist and Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, scolding President Donald Trump for taking a “disproportionate” hit on the terrorist.

“American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests,” the Democrat leader posted via social media hours after the Soleimani-kill was confirmed. “But we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions.”

“Soleimani was the head of the Iranian and Iranian-backed forces carrying out those operations killing American troops” during the Iraq War, Fox News reported. “According to the State Department, 17 percent of all deaths of U.S. personnel in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 were orchestrated by Soleimani.”

Moreover, as reported by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra on Friday afternoon, Soleimani was in the process of “coordinating” attacks on U.S. personnel, according to the State Department.

“We can confirm that in the past several days, General Soleimani had been traveling in the Middle East coordinating further imminent large-scale attacks against U.S. diplomats and service members. These threats were highly credible and the intelligence is sound,” the State Department said.

Pelosi continued to attack the Trump administration, ripping the president for killing the dangerous terrorist without consulting Congress.

“The Trump Admin has conducted strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an AUMF against Iran,” wrote the California rep. “Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.”

The Trump Admin has conducted strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an AUMF against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.

In the past, however, Pelosi did not have an issue with President Obama executing the disastrous Iran Deal without congressional approval. In fact, the Democrat called it a “diplomatic masterpiece” in 2015, according to USA Today.

“Former national security adviser Ben Rhodes, the architect of the Iran nuclear deal, purposely structured the JCPOA as a treaty that was not a treaty because he and his boss, President Obama, had no intention whatsoever of doing with the JCPOA what the Constitution mandates for all treaties, which is to obtain the approval of two-thirds of the Senate,” explained National Review writer Kyle Smith on Friday. “Rhodes and Obama simply rammed through what was in effect a treaty without seeking the approval of even one Senator.”

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro remarked on Democrats’ outrage over the Trump-ordered hit on Soleimani by outlining “Team Obama” foreign policy:

“Team Obama overthrew Qaddafi, failed to protect our Benghazi embassy, lied about it, and withdrew. Then they tried to bribe the Iranian terrorist regime without any strings attached. Now they have advice after Trump defended the Baghdad embassy and killed Soleimani. No,” he posted.

Pelosi wasn’t the only high-profile Democrat to attack Trump for killing one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world. Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) claimed Trump is trying to start a war with Iran to help him win reelection:

Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will. https://twitter.com/chrismurphyct/status/1212913952436445185

Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question.

The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?

  1. OVERLORD Says:

    JW Pelosi is a drunken impotent mouthpiece who couldn’t stop a bus. The “leak” over the last 5 months 750,000 targets in Iran have been identified and way pointed,55,000 prioritised for initial retaliatory strikes, Trump runs America not the Democrats, Trump will use executive orders if interference comes from the lower house and that is set in stone. The armed forces and intelligence agency’s are behind the President, those who seek to undermine will be brought to justice and tried for treason.


  2. Pelosi is an idiot. Meanwhile, this is what DJT just tweeted:

    “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently…

    ….hundreds of Iranian protesters. He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have…..

    ….targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”

    I don’t think anyone ever addressed the Mullahs in this manner before. They must be pissed.
