Shoot first, too late to ask questions.
Sorry I don't hang on your words. What or who did General Salami shoot first at?
I would not expect anyone on the "right" to ever think they were not "right" about what is going on in the World.

Should we not be better than those with whom we're engaged, and follow the rules of engagement,
What rules ?
Who sets them ?
You watch too many movies.
Show me evidence that he declared himself Emperor. Otherwise why should I listen to you. Undisputable evidence, not a twisted interpretation by the left.

im not sure if youre aware, but no one in the ME or anywhere else thinks we are exceptional in any way.
The only response to violence against US and her interest are even more extreme violence with speed of action.
Thats what they respect in the middle east
You have CLEARLY never been in a combat situation, so please, sit back down in your arm chair and preach your virtue to someone else
Or go put on a uniform
Should we not be better than those with whom we're engaged, and follow the rules of engagement, or should we throw out the rules and becomes as base, ruthless, ruleless as those against whom we fight?
That would be a war power: the power to declare it.

We have not declared war against Iran. But that doesn't mean we are unable to defend ourselves against Iran. It just means we do not take offensive actions. We don't make the first strike. But we can strike back and defend ourselves while Congress argues about morality while bullets are whizzing around our heads and the world around us is exploding.
how in any way shape or form is this him declaring him self emperor man you guys get more ridiculous every day?

I’ve been wondering if Soleimani the martyr was visiting Iraq on the sly, or if he had official permission from the government of Iraq to be there. Did Barham Salih or Adil Abdul-Mahdi, the prez and prime minister respectively, know of his presence and approve of it? I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere; perhaps one of you can tell me.
Anyway, I see Iraq’s parliament has voted to expel U.S. troops from Iraq, which is just fine with me. The entire Middle East is a madhouse and nothing good can come of it, except oil. Let some other country or coalition be the cop there and good luck to them!
