President Trump has described the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani as a move in the right direction,
Trump on Friday, January 3, ordered an airstrike that killed the Iranian commander, at the Baghdad International Airport.
Baring his mind on twitter, Trump explained that the late Iranian general had killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time.
The US president claimed the general has perfected plans to kill more Americans before he was totally neutralised by the airstrike.
He further stated that the late general had a hand in the deaths of millions of people, including the recent large number of protesters killed in Iran itself.
President Trump further said the Iranian leaders were just heating up the already tensed situation, stressing that the Iranian people were not as sad over the killing as their leaders were making it seem.
The Iranian government had promised harsh retaliation against the United States over the killing of the general.

….of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!
Meanwhile the US State Department has issued a security alert urging its citizens in Iraq to leave the country over security concerns while consular operations in Iraq were suspended due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the US embassy compound.
