IRAQ-President Donald Trump just did the exact opposite of what Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did during and after the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi was attacked. He went out and got some, dropping bombs on a man many say is…was Iran’s number two leader.
Word of the attacks sent financial chills down the spine of shareholders of the National Beverage Company which produces Rip-it Energy Fuel and Oakley which produces sunglasses. Both companies were signature products of the past 10 years of Middle East warfare as the unofficial beverage and sunglasses of troops serving overseas.
According the Department of Defense:
At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. He had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months – including the attack on December 27th – culminating in the death and wounding of additional American and Iraqi personnel. General Soleimani also approved the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad that took place this week.
This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.
