It’s odd how the political left cheers America’s shortcomings and mourns its victories.
The United States killed the top terrorist on the planet Thursday, and Democrats were…upset. Perhaps “upset” is too vague, they were a combination of angry and scared.
They were angry that President Trump ordered an air strike on Qassem Soleimani, a man responsible for the deaths of more than 600 American soldiers and thousands more wounded. They tried to pretend they were glad he was dead, that he deserved to die, but their quick condemnation of the action that took him out exposed what they were really thinking. Any statement on the death of a terrorist leader containing the word “but” is not a good statement.
Weirdly, the people who use the word “justice” most often saw no justice in the death of a man who’s been killing innocent people for their whole lives. Ilhan Omar reacted the way someone would when their childhood hero passes away, then tried to fundraise off of it because anti-Americanism translates into cash on the left.
They’ll strike back, or at least try, by continuing to support terrorism. Thanks to Obama and Clinton, they have plenty of cash with which to do it. But you don’t refuse to take out the man organizing attacks against Americans because it could lead to attacks against Americans; that makes no sense. You kill him, and if his successor picks up where he left off, you kill him too. Lather, rinse, repeat as necessary. Everyone who holds that job should live in fear of what is in the air above them.
Inaction hasn’t worked, appeasement hasn’t worked, giving them hundreds of billions of dollars didn’t buy any good will. Maybe killing their leader will have an impact. It certainly can’t hurt.
