Dem Senator Blasted After Criticizing Trump’s Decision to Kill Soleimani

Democrat Senator Chris Murphy attacked President Trump for killing Iranian military leader Soleimani without congressional approval in a tweet storm that made waves on social media.

Ironically just days earlier Murphy wrote:

The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable.

Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us.

America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away.

What a disgrace.

After the U.S. killed Soleimani in a devastating air strike, Murphy did a 180 degree turn.

Murphy tweeted:

Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question.

The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?

The justification for the assasination is to “deter future Iranian attacks”.

One reason we don’t generally assasinate foreign political officials is the belief that such action will get more, not less, Americans killed.

That should be our real, pressing and grave worry tonight.

No one can claim to know with certainty what happens next.

But the neocons thumping their chest tonight should recall that the worst mistakes global powers make are when they strike militarily in complicated places with few friends, with no consideration of the consequences.

Senator Ben Sasse responded to Murphy, calling his tweet “drunk partisanship.”

This tweet is simply drunk partisanship. Gen. Soleimani has killed hundreds and hundreds of Americans, and was actively plotting more. This commander-in-chief — any C-in-C. — has an obligation to defend America by killing this bastard.

Robby Starbuck replied to Murphy and wrote:

Hey Chris, take a night off from hating your own country and pipe down. Either that or go run for office in Iran if you’re so worried about them.
