Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani
By: Derek Hunter – townhall.com – January 12, 2020 It was the best of people, it was the worst of people… Osama bin Laden deserved to die.

Democrat press conference
By: Nick Arama – redstate.com – January 8, 2020 What’s really been embarrassing about the whole Iran issue is watching how Democrats have behaved since the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad was attacked, first accusing Trump of doing nothing, then attacking him when he responded and took out IRGC terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani. Soleimani’s pro-Iranian militia were behind multiple recent rocket attacks...

Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani
By: Alan Dershowitz – wsj.com – January 5, 2019 While reasonable people can debate the wisdom of killing Iranian Maj. Gen.

Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani
By: Joe Lieberman – wsj.com – January 5, 2020 President Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct. It deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far from my fellow Democrats. The president’s decision was bold and unconventional. It’s understandable that the political class should have questions about it....
