IS gloats at Iran general's death, says it pleased Muslims

Qassem Soleimani, center, attends a meeting in Tehran, Iran. Iraqi TV and three Iraqi officials said Friday, Jan. 3, 2020, that Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, has been killed in an airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport.

To understand the killing of the top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, we must go to the movies. As usual, to avoid any issue that irritates him, President Donald Trump employs the “Wag the Dog” technique. The 1997 movie explains many of his actions. But we can’t be fooled. The impeachment trial is the real issue.

We’re not stupid. Hopefully voters will keep this in mind in November.
