Qassem Soleimani is dead and just as turds turn into stink the ‘rats are play the “but card”, Ben Rhodes:

Agree – no question that Soleimani has a lot of blood on his hands. But this is a really frightening moment. Iran will respond and likely in various places. Thinking of all US personnel in the region right now.

Does the description Solemani’s death ring an historical bell, from Fox News:

An official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that Muhandis had arrived to the airport in a convoy to receive Soleimani whose plane had arrived from either Lebanon or Syria. The airstrike occurred as soon as he descended from the plane to be greeted by Muhandis and his companions, killing them all.

Set the Wayback Machine to 18 April 1943, from Warfare History:

Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, commander of the combined Fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy, intended to press ahead with his morale-boosting visits to forward units in the South Pacific in April 1943, despite dire warnings from subordinates of possible enemy ambushes. He had no idea that the Americans had plotted through a military operation codenamed Operation Vengeance to intercept and shoot down his transport bomber aircraft.

The 60-year-old mastermind of the Pearl Harbor attack in Decem- ber 1941 knew his forces needed a psychological boost in the face of a string of defeats at the hands of the U.S. Navy in 1942 and early 1943. By the spring of 1943, the Americans had firmly established themselves on Guadalcanal in the Soloman Islands, having defeated multiple attempts by the Japanese over a six-month period from August 1942 to February 1943 to recapture the island.

War is Hell, and both Soleimani and Yamamoto have been sent there.  I dare the ilk of Ben Rhodes, Lying Lizzie Warren and Chris Murphy to find any difference between the two, save I doubt that Franklin Roosevelt signed off on Operation Vengence.

  1. And if only Saburo Sakai had been a better shot one single day LBJ wouldn’t have been able to kill 100,000 Americans in VietFnam while his wife cashed her KBR checks.

    We wouldn’t even have AFDC.
