They Have Clearly Lost Their Minds

The Democrats in this country have lost their minds. I am sorry, but it is true. When the terrorist leader that is directly responsible for over 500 American deaths and thousands of American and Coalition forces has been taken off the battlefield, it should be a cause for celebration no matter who the President is who ordered it. It does not matter to most thinking people whether or not there was evidence of “imminent danger” from this vile human being. He has already shown himself to be a war criminal and capable of the cruelest atrocities. His death, unlike most, actually enriched the world rather than detracted from it.

This, in my opinion, is akin to taking out Himmler or Goering or (pick your Nazi) prior to WW II. By the time the statesmen running the world realized Hitler was an “imminent threat” he had already overrun half of Europe with his sights set on the rest. I am not FDR’s biggest fan but he was right about the threat to the world the Nazi’s posed and if he and Churchill had been able to act sooner to contain that threat millions need not have died. It would have been right then and it was right now to take out this piece of filth responsible for so much suffering by so many.

The Iranian regime is a rogue government and its only interest in engaging in the world community is to manipulate it to achieve its own ends. They have no interest in peaceful co-existence with their coreligionists, let alone Israel and the US. It is very telling that the usual voices so ready to condemn any strong actions by the US are conspicuously silent. If even those who do not wish us well and who are not our allies recognize that this cancer on humanity had to be excised, then why don’t Democrats.

There were a few days of “mourning” where students and others were forced onto the streets by the government to express “sorrow” over the death of this monster. The American Press ate it up, some particularly idiotic commentators comparing the this outpouring of feigned grief to that expressed in this country for Elvis or in Great Britain for Princess Dianna. Such utter nonsense would end the careers of these talking heads in any sane society, but as I have already stated these people have lost their minds.

In the middle of all this, the Iranian Military shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing every one on board. First they tried to cover it up, then attempted to blame it on their reaction to “American adventurism” in the region. The American press lapdogs dutifully ate it up, of course, but then something happened that changed the narrative.

Iranians flooded to the streets once again, this time without coercion. Instead of chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” they were calling for the heads of the leaders of their own government. Rather than trampling on and burning American and Israeli flags they were purposely avoiding walking on those flags painted on the street for that very purpose in 1979. Rather than weeping over the assassination of the “Great Hero” Gen. Qassem Soleimani, they were tearing down posters of him and burning them in the streets.

And as of this morning, still not a word of support for these demonstrators from the Democrats. These demonstrators are clearly heroes, risking their lives and the well being of their families to oppose this despotic regime. The silence from Democratic lawmakers and candidates for the Presidency is just stunning. Hopefully there will be a joint resolution in Congress voicing support for these brave souls and it would send a clear and unambiguous message to the mullahs if that resolution passed unanimously. I pray the Democrats and Republican can come together in a bipartisan declaration that above all, we stand with those who defend freedom.

The US Strikes Back

Overnight the US treated the attack on our embassy in Baghdad exactly as it should have been treated: as an attack on out sovereign territory, no different then if they had attacked Brooklyn. The leader of the embassy attack, Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, has been responsible for many American and allied deaths in the region, as well as the deaths of many innocent civilians. He should have been taken out long ago and last night he was. It was exactly the right thing to do.

Predictably, Iran has been rattling their sabers, threatening all kinds of retaliation, decrying the death of this terrorist as an an act of terrorism. Bur this is not the first time Iran has been found incapable of observing even the most basic norms of civilization and diplomacy. They have shown they have no interest in diplomacy and have made it crystal clear that the only thing they understand is swift, decisive and destructive action.

Also predictably, the Democrats have put themselves in the position of giving aid and comfort to our enemies, decrying the attacks in their usual inane, uninformed and knee-jerk reactions to our military action overnight. There was a complaint that Chuck Schumer was not informed in advance of the attack. But as Dinesh D’Souza pointed out in a tweet this morning, “The Iranians weren’t either, for much the same reason.” It is sad that the leaders in Congress of the opposition party cannot be trusted but unfortunately that is the case today.

What happened in Benghazi during the Obama Administration and Tehran during the Carter Administration should never have been tolerated. Thanks to the actions of this President, notice has been served on the lunatics running the asylum in Iran that, to quote that famous line in Network, “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!”
