    Well then whew, thank god we took him out. Threat averted. Certainly he was working alone and there's no one to pick up the plans where Soleimani left off.

    Now what imminent threat was OBL capable of?

    You mean a reason other than Trump's penchant for lying in general?

    Pompeo said (after Trump's claim), "We don't know when, we don't know where" in response to a question on the details of the imminent attack.

    The executive was explicitly granted the authority to go after OBL because of his direct involvement and planning of the 9/11 attack. So the authorization to kill OBL was not derived from the "imminent threat" justification used to kill the military leader of a foreign country (something else that did not apply to OBL).

    You mean the same military leader of a foreign country that attempted and failed a terrorist attack on US soil?

    That idiot Chris Matthews on MSNBC compared Soleimani funeral to Princess Dianne & Elvis.

    I don’t remember people being trampled to death at the funeral of Princess Diane or Elvis’s funeral.

    I don't know whether or not to believe anything Trump says since he lies so much.

    From your own link:
    So the name you pointed out isn't even the same guy. The phase 2 was to happen 8 years after the start of the treaty, which is less than 5 years old. Pathetic right wing propaganda.

    that is my point, Trump did the same as previous President in the past when it came to killing this man

    no one cares about Soleimani, what we care about is if his killing leads to war... and thus far looking like maybe we got lucky on this one, let's hope, time will tell

    Trump's decision to kill Soleimani appears to have unified the Middle East against the United States.

    Trump praised and defended Kim about the son they sent home basically brain-dead, then we have the reporter that was killed by a Saudi, and of course his praising and defending Putin

    Putin, Saudi Crown Prince high-five at G-20 summit"

    Iraqi's might differ from you. Granted, they care even less for the US forces which I don't blame them for.

    And don't forget Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia's love for Soleimani and now how unified they are against the US!

    I don’t see Israel siding with Iran anytime soon.

    They prefer and trust trump over Obama.

    Trump did not turn on our Allie Israel and side with Iran.

    Yeah, Saudi I think loved seeing Soleimani terminated.

    How Iran openly attacked Saudi Arabia and got away with it
