Dems Not Coping With Death of a Terrorist Mass-Murderer 

Ilhan Omar one of the liberal “squad” of Democratic freshmen said Friday 3 Jan. 2020 that she and her fellow Democrats are “outraged” that President Trump assassinated Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani (whom she called a “foreign official”), without consulting Congress. “We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization,” Omar tweeted in response to comments made by Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz had pointed out that even the Obama administration acknowledged Soleimani was a terrorist directly responsible for the murder of over 500 USA military men and women. “Why are congressional Dems outraged that he’s finally dead?” Cruz asked on Twitter. The administration considered Soleimani as commander of a terrorist network and not a legitimate representative of Iran’s government. Another member of “the Squad,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, also condemned Trump’s mission in Iraq. “We cannot stay silent as this lawless president recklessly moves us closer to yet another unnecessary war that puts innocent lives at risk at home & across the globe,” she tweeted. “Congress alone has the authority to declare war, & we must reclaim our responsibility & say no to war with Iran.” Looking back, it is noteworthy to recall that former USA president, Barack Obama launched close to 3000 strikes on Iraq and Syria in 2016 - without congressional approval.
