    NOW WE KNOW! Of course, I wonder if FOX mentioned it or any of these people in their analysis of why TRUMP had to go NOW. TRUMP in his infinite intellect and strategic thinking knows better, right?

    'This is bigger than bin Laden': Petraeus says it's 'impossible to overstate' impact of Soleimani death

    William Cummings
    USA TODAY

    AWASHINGTON – Retired Gen. David Petraeus said Sunday that the death of his former battlefield enemy, Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, in a drone airstrike outside the Baghdad airport was a more dramatic event than the deaths of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden or Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

    Petraeus said during an interview on CBS News' "Face the Nation" that he considered Soleimani a "very capable" adversary during his time commanding troops in Iraq and that "it's impossible to overstate the significance of the attack" that killed Iran's top military figure.

    Soleimani led Iran's elite Quds Force, an irregular group within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps that supported militias loyal to Iran around the Middle East. Under Soleimani, the Revolutionary Guard trained Iraqi militants to fight U.S. troops after the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein and taught them to make the roadside bombs that killed and maimed many American service members....

    Let me reiterate, then WHY DIDN'T any of them do anything over any number of years to THIS dangerous man? A danger to the region. A danger to Americans, a danger to his own country! Yet Trump, in HIS infinite wisdom, calls a strike over a holiday weekend as he FUMES about impeachment and watches demonstrations at an American embassy in a country we BLEW UP 15 years before. Oh yeah, between his GOLF ROUNDS.

    Go ahead try and run that SHIT up the flagpole. Let's see if it will fly. How about you run it up THIS flagpole, I mean it'll fly on a Trump property right?



    NOTE: This is the flagpole that TRUMP went to 'WAR' with his neighbors over. Tried to sue them because there are ordinances PALM BEACH COUNTY has adopted, you know through, 'elected officials' regarding signs and flags and buildings and bulkheads and storefronts and driveways and yards and trash and and and... Trump was PISSED at his neighbors (about something totally different--LONG story) so he SUED the county for $25,000,000 over 'erecting' his pole.

    Yeah, we all thought he was a hero. Because we liberals are an undiscerning illogical bunch. (I called 3 DEM type people that night that I knew were early sleepers and woke their asses up and told them to turn on the TV, 'something big' was about to be announced. NO ONE bitched even a little about waking them up).

    They did not do it because they knew it would accomplish nothing. He was replaced immediately. It caused real Irani/American tensions for nothing. They did the calculus that arrived that it was a bad idea. Trump added in his TV experience and he thought he could sell it as a show that saved the world. He figured it would help his election. The international problems did not interest him.
