What Donald Trump did last week was order the assassination of a foreign leader.
Given today’s drone technology, it is clearly an easy thing to do.
It is a shame that some Democratic Party leaders and others need to first clarify that they believe that Qassim Suleimani was a bad actor.
The world is full of bad actors. None worse than the current President of the United States.
Only the most naive should believe that the United States hasn’t taken out government leaders they didn’t like before this.
Allende in Chile. Arbenz in Guatemala.
The 1953 Iranian coup d’état, known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup d’état which resulted in the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, replaced by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi on 19 August 1953, which was fully orchestrated by the United States.
So, when Democrat after Democrat first declare that Qassim Suleimani was a bad actor and agree with Trump that he was responsible for putting Americans in “harm’s way” they are defending the principle that we can assassinate or depose anyone we want.
So long as Congress is consulted first.

From Hillary Clinton to the late John McCain, the regime changers have had their eyes on Iran for decades.
Yesterday, Trump acted and essentially declared war on Iran by killing , Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, who led the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards.
The justification was that Iran represented some immediate threat to the United States in Iraq.
This is ironic, given we are in Iraq based on claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that represented some immediate threat to the United States.
That was a lie.
And now again.
I agree with Bernie.
I was right about Vietnam.
I was right about Iraq.
I will do everything in my power to prevent a war with Iran.
I apologize to no one. pic.twitter.com/Lna3oBZMKB
