"'Most revered military leader' now joins 'austere religious scholar' and 'mourners' trying to storm our embassy as word choices that make normal people wonder whose side the American mainstream media is on."

How DARE someone who is not a Democrat order the killing of terrorist leaders.

George said...

He was a frigging terrorist and Trump is he first president in 4 decades to know how to deal with these scumbags

When is movie with George Clooney playing Soleimani coming out?

rhhardin said...

That's called an echo lede. Thought not to be a good choice.

Meade said...

“When is movie with George Clooney playing Soleimani coming out?”

Lol

Amadeus 48 said...

Thanks, Althouse. We needed that.

Milo Minderbinder said...

I don't wonder what side the American media is on, ever.

Iran declared war on the US several administrations ago. It's been responsible for about one-third of American deaths in the Middle East since 1979. Why shed tears for terrorists?

rhhardin said...

Religious leaders are activist. Look at the pope. He'll be blowing stuff up soon.

Marcus said...

The Washington Post, among others in the MSM, is truly The Enemy of the American People.
Shame on them.

THEOLDMAN

Proud to have a courageous and determined POTUS.
Ben Rhodes is in mourning

From Wikipedia:

"Operation Vengeance was the American military operation to kill Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto of the Imperial Japanese Navy on April 18, 1943, during the Solomon Islands campaign in the Pacific Theater of World War II...

"The mission of the U.S. aircraft was specifically to kill Yamamoto and was based on United States Navy intelligence on Yamamoto's itinerary in the Solomon Islands area. The death of Yamamoto reportedly damaged the morale of Japanese naval personnel, raised the morale of the Allied forces, and was intended as revenge by U.S. leaders who blamed Yamamoto for the attack on Pearl Harbor that initiated the formal state of war between Imperial Japan and the United States."

Imagine how today's media and political opposition would deal with Operation Vengeance. "Fresh Concerns in Pacific Theater following US Regime's Killing of Revered Japanese Admiral".

Fake News was calling it an “assassination.”

We know now - if there was ever any doubt - that the Fake News is not on the side of America.

Wondering? Who is wondering?

David Begley said...

I’m watching Secretary Pompeo right now. I sure hope he stays at State and doesn’t run for Senator from Kansas.

pacwest said...

More darkness from the WAPO. More like a smokescreen really. Who the hell are these people? I get that they are a Dem operatives and they don't like Trump, but why are they covering for Islamic terrorists?

Exactly. We aren't wondering at all.

The reveal is that their assertion is factually false. Most Iranians think of him like Iraqis did Uday and Qusay, and those few who do support him do so for secular reasons so "revered" is 100% false. But left journalists twist all news into the presentation most favorable to America's enemies.

People don't realize how much of their beliefs they reveal through their choices. They just can't help themselves when they are completely convinced of their righteousness.

Rick said...

but why are they covering for Islamic terrorists?

A clarification to match their viewpoint answers this:

Why are they covering for their allies?

Michael K said...

Obama and ValJar tried to ally the US with Iran, a regime that declared war on us in 1979 and took our embassy hostage. I think we know who is on which side.

rehajm said...

They wanted to blow the scruffy beard, tousled hair Boston bomber, too...

Maybe it is the thing like the way all those women who marry incarcerated men.

Temujin said...

Chuck Todd is still beside himself trying to figure out why the media is held in such disregard and disgust. Ask Ben Rhodes. He knew why: "They literally know nothing."

traditionalguy said...

The Dems are upset. How dare we shoot first. You would think FDR had sent the Navy out to sink the six Japanese Fleet Carriers steaming around peacefully 200 miles north of Pearl Harbor on December 6,1941. Why that might have started a war.

Wince said...

Even Ted Koppel wouldn't buy into the propaganda of the Iranians who stormed the US Embassy in 1979.

He would only call them "so-called students".

chuck said...

I don't wonder.

A statement was released in the last week or so that he will not pursue a Senate run.

walter said...

Who will update his Wiki?(which is worth a look, given his smug smile there)

GatorNavy said...

No surprise here, the media has always thought the flyover states were the Great Satan for decades. Also, IMHO, Narayanan at 0545 wins this thread.

Michael K said...

There is also talk that he is thinking about 2024 and the Big One. Pence has nothing sown up.

Birkel said...

Who are these theoretical people who still wonder?

The better comparison is getting upset we sunk one of the Japanese carriers in the Coral Sea because fighting back is an escalation and might anger them.

mockturtle said...

There is no wondering what side the media are on. It's become increasingly clear for decades.

Gahrie said...

Most revered military leader

Written without a shred of irony. Who knew the "religion of peace" had revered military leaders?

Trump as Han Solo before Disney ruined me.

Known Unknown said...

No one dare asks why an Iranian military leader was in Iraq?

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

Oh we know.

gspencer said...

Maybe I'm not longer normal, but I no longer wonder whose side the MSM is on.

Big Mike said...

I have not wondered whose side the Post is on for many years.

DavidUW said...

I don’t think normal people have wondered much for about 18.25 years (9/11)

visiting his troops for New Years dinner?

Sebastian said...

Mourners, protesters -- whatever: they oppose Trump and America, so anything goes.

rcocean said...

Revered Military leader, known for his thoughtful, mild-mannered management style and love of God and Country was murdered yesterday on orders of President Trump. Millions around the world were outraged at this violation of international standards of behavior. Especially Democrats.

rcocean said...

I had the same question. Why is this guy in Iraq? What is our current situation with Iraq? Do we have troops there, are we giving them aid still? What's the story?

mockturtle said...

Rcocean: $3.7 billion in 2019. It's serving mainly to make our private contractors and Pentagon cronies rich.

There is no Iraq government at present. Lame Duck!
Prior to this Both President and Prime Minister had resigned is what I read.

Take out a billion more of the ringleaders, and we won't have much trouble from them anymore.

Fresh from a multi-trimester adventure of hunting witches and judging warlocks, the wanton WaPo reports.

The most revered and mourners goes right along with the 'protesters' outside the Benghazi consulate who were angry about a movie nobody ever saw.
