If you were Donald Trump…

What would be your reaction to the fact that Iran, a country controlled by religious zealots, is going to try you in a court of law over your elimination of one of their generals, one of the world’s top terrorist?

Would you call a lawyer?

Would you be nervous?

Or would you lean back in your chair and laugh your proverbial butt off at the ridiculous concept of being tried in Iran under an “Islamic Penal Code?”

Regardless of what YOUR reaction would be…

We’re betting that our president reacted in the latter way – leaning back in his chair and chuckling with his advisors.

The entire world (minus some Iranians and the American Left) has been celebrating the death of Qasem Soleimani for his crimes against humanity…

Murder, assassination, bodily harm, oppression, and even more evil was carried out by Iranian Major General—and despite his high rank, he was nothing more than a terrorist when it came to his work in the Middle East.

It was work he seemed to relish.

Yet…

This strategic move by the American president has been questioned by the American Left, as well as those loyal to the Ayatollah in the Islamic regime that controls Iran. Now, it’s at the point that it seems like all these people actively mourn the man’s not-timely-enough passing.

An American President In A Religious Zealot’s Court

While the Left tries to make Trump seem like a warmonger…

The Iranians are taking it a step further.

Gholamhossein Esmaeili, a spokesman for the Iranian courts, recently told reporters that the strike against Soleimani was “a terrorist move” and that our president would face their brand of justice in the Iranian legal system.

In the statement, Esmaeili said, “There is no doubt that the U.S. military has done a terrorist move assassinating IRGC Commander Lt. Gen. Soleimani and Second-in-Command of Iraq Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis … and Trump has confessed doing the crime. The firmest reason for accusing an individual is his confession.”

The spokesman also said that his government would “initially file a lawsuit in Iran, which is legal under the Islamic Penal Code.”

For what crime will Trump be charged?

You’d think “terrorism,” seeing as they used that word in their statement…

But then they’d have to try everybody who is guilty of that in their country and that process could take DECADES.

Can you believe it?

And even better question…

If the Iranians follow through with this farce, what are the odds that Trump would even show up to the sham trial or abide by any ruling that the court made?

He Had To Go…

Soleimani was a terrorist…

He was on a travel ban…

He was pictured at the staging area of the attack on the US embassy in Baghdad…

What other reason did Trump need to deem this man a threat and eliminate him without prejudice?

But it makes sense that Iran would do this…

They’re also blaming the United States for their shooting down of the airplane that killed a mix of Britons, Canadians, and Iranians.

Here’s the scenario…

This is basically what Iran did, in a metaphorical way.

Three brothers sitting in a back seat – the little brother kept poking the big brother. The big brother told him to cool it but the little brother didn’t listen and actually stepped up his harassment, hauling off and punching the big brother in face with his tiny fist.

The big brother slugs the little brother in the arm… hard. The little brother cries and punches the third brother—an innocent bystander—in the leg saying, “our big brother made me do it!”

No…

He didn’t. And the US didn’t do that to Iran either.

This lawsuit is nothing less than comical and it seems like we haven’t heard the last about this issue.

Too bad…

We’re coming up on election season and it’d be nice to stay focused.

Oh well…

Guess this needs to run its course.

 

“The human condition is what it is. We can see beauty and wonder in the world, but we also face imminent death and uncertainty, and we often need to sidestep the idea of time and communicate with each other, not with words but with a sense of community and union. I don’t want to make an overreaching statement, but I think that’s the function of culture.” – Justin Adams
