When BarryO made a media event of the killing of Osama bin Laden the victory dancing went on for weeks. No one argued that we shouldn't have invaded a country unannounced to do it other than a few numbnuts wags here and there. We all agreed that Osama was a truly bad guy and needed killing. Fast forward to today. We killed another truly bad guy who made Osama look like a school boy bullying on the playground. The doom and gloom, brink of war howling is incessant. We didn't even invade another country, we were already there. What sent the loony bin in full retreat to their bomb shelters? Politics.

Hold on a sec here...I am used tou you making stuff up and creating neato imaginings but...Osama freakin' led a major terrorist org. that took out the twin towers and killed a bunch of my fellow citizens....AND BRAGGED ABOUT IT! The other guy supposedly planned or thought about possibly attacking an embassy or something, we really cannot know because the President says much that is false and never actually provides anything approaching hard data.

That's the story the fake news uses to confuse idiots (it worked on you right?).

What really happened is that we assassinated a man on a diplomatic mission trying to negotiate a peace agreement.

The thing you're discounting is that the terrorist we killed was the leader of an even larger more dangerous organization paid and supported by the Iranian govt that has been conducting terrorist operations outside of Iran for many years and is responsible for the deaths of thousands. He was planning a series of attacks on US embassies and bases in Iraq and elsewhere. You can state that we shouldn't have done it because you didn't give permission for the attack till the cows come home but it falls on primarily deaf ears.
What makes your post disingenuous is that if virtually any Democrat been in the big chair and done this there would have been cheering from the left accompanied with high fives all round. There might well have been objections from the right as well and the scenario would have played out exactly the same way.
Read up on your hero.

I posted on another thread that this BS about a peace mission has been the plot of too many B movies and TV series that it bounce off anyone with a brain not fogged by liberal loonie propaganda. Do you honestly think the propaganda barfed out by the Iranian govt is more credible than our own govt or is it simple the usual kneejerk response that is the hallmark of the lefties? Do you think you'd be pumping out a different tune if any Democrat had done the same thing? I'm pretty sure you would. This incident is going to be the stuff of articles and books defending your opinion for years until the secret of how we knew who is a terrorist and what they are planning is declassified. Then the endless defense of all the books and articles will be defended. That goes for both political ilks.

Yeah, you don't believe the Iraqi premier, because it sounds like a B movie.
That's not the Iranians, it's the Iraqi Premier, our ally, who says the General was on a peace mission.
But there was imminent danger, that required action, Bolton agreed to testify, that we know for sure.

If you believe the BS storys about anything that oozes past the hemorrhoids of the Iranians here's one you should be cheering about too. Don't bother to bore us with the "what ifs" and "what abouts" it only embarrasses you further.

"Here’s all you should about the bases and the scale of the attack on Wednesday:
15 missile fired, 80 killed in missile attacks claims Iran
Iranian state television said at least 80 "American terrorists" were killed in attacks involving 15 missiles Tehran launched on US targets in Iraq, adding that none of the missiles were intercepted."

Maybe the peace mission WAS the imminent danger?? Winky wink.

Dude,
You are so PWNED.
People who plot the death of Americans on the battlefield aren't terrorists, they are generals.
People who assassinate diplomats on peace missions are terrorists.
I see you trying to avoid facts , because that's what minions do.
So pour on the stupid, it's what we have grown to expect.
