    Can you just image what the mood in DC will be like Friday Morning?

    All those Deep State progressives and Left Media who want to Focus on the Trump Impeachment Trial as the Senate resumes and this is the big story!

    Quote - "Qassem Soleimani, the powerful head of Iranís Quds Force, was killed in an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport, Iraqi TV and three Iraqi officials officials said Friday.

    "The officials said the strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces."

    " US officials told Reuters that it had carried out a strike in Baghdad on two figures linked to Iran, but did not provide details. The attack came hours after Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the US was ready to step up activities to push Iran-backed forces out of Iraq, including pre-emptive strikes."

    The most important assassination in recent memory. Soleimani’s hands were in every aspect of Iran’s multi-decade proxy wars. The significance of this cannot possibly be overstated.

    I wonder if this was a mission waiting for an excuse? Our military is awesome!! My bet is that we are keeping tabs on all their leaders, waiting for the right moment. I bet the Iranians are both pissed, and scared! I love a President that is a fighter! Obama and Kerry would be loading up another unmarked plane with unmarked cash.

    This is a Huge Win! Multiple sources confirm Trump acted immediately to secure the safety of American lives. Everybody got involved very quickly and once the intelligence was confirmed he acted!

    Well, he was big, but not as big as Bin Laden.

    It is......the first for a long time --- that the US has taken out a military leader ; Saddam Hussein and other General ranked dictators not included.

    How did the US know where these two were ?

    ***** What was the considerations by US leaders for collateral damage and civilian deaths ? *****

    Why was the strike at a populated place, versus a automobile or private dwelling strike? A million places they could have been hit, and an airport was chosen. Hmmmm.

    What will the reaction from Iran and Iraq be ?

    He was responsible for organizing the attack on our Embassy IIRC. Good riddance.

    EXCERPT from Fox News:

    "An official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said al-Muhandis had arrived to the airport in a convoy to receive Soleimani whose plane had arrived from either Lebanon or Syria. The airstrike occurred as soon as he descended from the plane to be greeted by al-Muhandis and his companions, killing them all."

    I used to really like ducks.
