President Trump was right to kill the terrorist who was planning further bloodshed and with the blood of thousands on his hands. Soleimani’s Revolutionary Guard was responsible for massacring over 1,500 of his fellow countrymen after they protested the regime. In Iraq, he trained Shiite militias to torture and kill their enemies to maintain Iran’s power over the Iraqi government.

Iran is a murderous dictatorship similar to Nazi Germany. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard is similar to Hitler’s SS. They exist as a parallel armed force to protect the regime.

The Mullahs in Iran hijacked a legitimate revolution in the late ‘70s to establish a murderous, repressive, evil regime of their own. They have killed hundreds of thousands of their own citizens in order to stay in power. During the 1988 massacre, over 30,000 members of the resistance were executed in cold blood. They admitted that they shot down a Ukrainian jetliner killing all 176 people aboard. After the terrorist Soleimani was killed the regime blocked roads to create a “sea of humans” during his funeral, causing a stampede that killed 40 people. The Mullahs have looted the country to the point where large swaths of the country don’t even have fresh water.

Most Iranian youth have no future. This is why thousands of them gave their lives walking into the machine guns and tanks of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who tried to stop the widespread demonstrations which have erupted all over Iran.

Trump is right to continue squeezing Iran with sanctions to shut down the flow of dollars to this evil medieval regime. Trump doesn’t have to send troops to Iran. He can continue to tighten the noose. The Iranian people will do the rest. Finally as our president said, Iran must never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
