Remember when John Kerry was campaigning for president in 2003/4 and called for a return to the days when we considered these Middle Eastern terrorists such as Sulemani to be nothing more than a 'nuisance' rather than imminent threats?
These terrorists and their 'nuisant' ways have been responsible for perhaps hundreds of thousands of deaths over the past few decades, to include Americans, Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis and even Russians and Iranians. You should ask the family members of those killed by this terrorist general and see how much of a 'nuisance' they consider this guy to be.
Of course the Neville Chamberlains of the left will conduct massive shows of great wailing and gnashing of teeth at this war mongering president for authorizing this targeted drone strike, but let them. Appeasing the mullahs with pallets laden with cash money has gotten us nothing but body bags. Obama figured he could buy his way into a peaceful Iran with this foolish offering, and we see what we got in the bargain - nothing but more Iranian aggression and death for many Americans and their allies.
The Iranian mullahs are now promising a devastating response to this 'rogue' action. I say bring it. Afterwards, we will target all of those forces who generate anything close to revenge, and then sit back and see what else they got. Which is not much, as Iran has always been a weak bully in the region.
We simply chose to punch the bully back. It works every time it's tried.
