After President Trump vowed that Iran would be “fully responsible” for any lives lost at U.S. facilities abroad, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, “You can’t do anything.”

In less than just 48 hours later, an airstrike ordered by Trump killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force. The ayatollah is now claiming “harsh retaliation is waiting for the criminals whose filthy hands spilled his blood.” Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani also promised to “take revenge for this heinous crime.”

Rouhani added that Iran would “raise the flag” of Soleimani “in defense of the country’s territorial integrity and the fight against terrorism and extremism in the region.” Javad Zarif, the country’s foreign minister, called the U.S. strike “an act of state terrorism and a violation of Iraq’s sovereignty.”

In a report by Fox News, “Iran’s top ‘shadow commander’ was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more, the State Department said.”

A security alert was issued by the U.S. State Department to urge all U.S. citizens to depart Iraq immediately due to heightened tensions in the region. The alert said: “Due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the U.S. Embassy compound, all consular operations are suspended. U.S. citizens should not approach the Embassy.”

According to NBC News, “Soleimani was one of the most influential figures in the Middle East, having developed a network of powerful militia groups whose clandestine reach stretched into Iraq, Syria and beyond.”

    While I do not want and all out war with anyone, the U S can not and should not let other countries run rough shot over us like it has in the past.. you don’t let someone slap you around draw a line in the sand and keep backing up because your scared to do something about it. Congress has been saying Trump should listen to his security advisors before he act he did , he was man enough and tuff enough to make the decision to take outa bad guy instead of backing up and drawing another line in the sand . This is our president if you live in the USA his your president too, no lines in the sand no planes loads of money, just a man doing a job to lead and protect the people and interatie of this great country. Some of us didn’t like Obama or the way he handled things but he was in charge and ran the country the way he or they saw fit , now Trumps running it the he and his advisors see fit.
    So to me the way to show other countries how strorng our country is is to stand behind and support our commander and chief instead of complaining about everything he does . I Druther be a strong country then a weak one . Just my option!

      Well said

    • Mr. Graham is a well spoken man with great knowledge. It seems that congress has forgotten the fact that they are suppose to work for WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE !!! We DO NOT WORK FOR THEM !!! They are a bunch of crooked bums. They can’t control, manipulate, black mail, or bully the President and he’s never done anything wrong or against the law. He’s earned every penny he’s ever had, he is an honorable man. President Trump is an American President not for the border creeper’s who keep crawling across our border’s like they are. As for the pigs over in those 3rd world countries we are fighting with are stupid to think that we aren’t going to fight back. If they’re stupid enough to think we’ll just sit back and cower down from them they are so dam wrong we will fight and send them the knowledge that we are Americans and we will fight!!!!

    I don’t see why the Iranians are so upset for Soleimani, they should be rejoicing that he has his 72 virgins now.

    I’m proud to say that I am am American today. It has been a long time coming that we stand our ground and back our words, however that has to be done! No American lives were lost AND we made a point that will deter other countries from doing things like this in the future(I hope) cudos President Trump! It’s about time we have a man in office that has the balls to act when action is NEEDED!

    I find the sheer ignorance of the previous comments astonishing. We are a nation of laws, but this attack violated the Constitution. Only Congress has the right to declare war. Our top military and security advisors were, and are, not in favor of that action. Our Commander in Chief has no military experience, and clearly shows a lack of good judgment in his actions, now and previously.

    • Avatar Hung Pham says:

      So you want all our Presidents have to walk with a head down n let our enemies tell us what they want n how they want it. (Sound like you the 1 who’s let peoples bullying you all the time n you do nothing about it) So proud of you… Remember, no one want the war. Just enough is enough…
