(Tea Party PAC) – One of the many things we all love about President Trump is his ability to take counsel from the intelligent folks he surrounds himself with, realizing that he doesn’t have all the answers or know enough about every single field of expertise in order to make solid decisions on his own.
Therefore, he gets the best people and puts them around him so that he can listen to their counsel and make good decisions. Like wiping out a deplorable terrorist who threatened to kill American citizens and had actual plans in place to do so.
Just how bad was the strike against Gen. Qassam Soleimani? Well, in order to get his body back to his home country of Iran, he had to be scraped off the airport road, packed up in a box, and then flown back home.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
The former al-Quds leader took up 2-3 seats on the plane back home, reported The New York Post in a cardboard box.
The regime didn’t even send an official military plane for his remains.
Iranian hardliners were waiting for Soleimani’s remains at the airport when they arrived.

Here’s more information on what Soleimani was planning to do via the Daily Wire:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News’s Sean Hannity of Friday that Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani was planning an “imminent” attack – dubbed by the Iranians as “The Big Attack” – that could have killed “hundreds of Americans”.
“This was an amazing group – our intelligence community working with the best military on the face of the earth, the best intelligence forces, your State Department, and the president made this decision very quickly in response to what was a real threat,” Hannity said. “What can you tell us?”
“It in fact was an all of government effort directed and led by President Trump. We identified a risk. The president talked about today that Soleimani, the terrorist, was engaged in active plotting,” Pompeo responded. “There was an attack that was imminent that could have killed dozens or hundreds of Americans. We found an opportunity, and we delivered. ”
“We brought all of America’s best and brightest together, found an opportunity, and took this guy – who you described pretty accurately as one of the worst terrorists ever to walk the face of the planet – we took him off the battlefield,” Pompeo continued. “We were successful at eliminating the risk that he would ever conduct a terror campaign anywhere in the world again or that he could put any American at risk one more time.”
Hannity continued by noting President Donald Trump’s words from earlier on Friday, when Trump said, “Soleimani was plotting imminent sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him.”
“We know the U.S. special representative for Iran, Brian Hook, also confirmed that,” Hannity said. “I was listening very closely to your comments yesterday, and I felt you were saying the same thing. How bad was this potential?”
“Yeah. We caught him, and we stopped him. That’s a good thing for the world,” Pompeo responded. “He was traveling the region when he landed in Baghdad. The travels before that put him in places all around the region which were aimed solely at building out what they were referring to as ‘the big attack.’ They were aiming to take down significant amounts of Americans.”
“It would have undoubtedly killed locals, too, Iraqis, Lebanese, Syrians, perhaps, people all throughout the region,” Pompeo continued. “This was an attack that would have been to some scale. We can’t talk much about the details, but suffice [it] to say, the American people can know that the decision that President Trump made to take Qasem Soleimani down saved American lives.”
At the end of the day, like it or lump it, President Trump made a tough call and it was the right decision. American lives were saved and that’s exactly what a president must do in his or her role as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
Let’s all celebrate the death of a madman who was plotting to hurt our fellow citizens.
