Leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force killed in airstrike near Baghdad airport
Nearly 900 additional U.S troops have been sent to the Middle East, and the Pentagon warned Iran may be orchestrating more attacks on U.S. interests in the region.

Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was killed late Thursday in a U.S. airstrike that targeted a convoy near the airport in Baghdad.

Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis also died in the airstrike, Ahmed al-Assadi, a spokesman for Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces umbrella grouping of Iran-backed militias, confirmed to ABC News.

The U.S. Department of Defense confirmed in a statement to ABC News it was responsible for the attack.

“At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization,” the statement read. “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”

Soleimani and the Quds Force, according to the Department of Defense, “were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. He had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months — including the attack on December 27th — culminating in the death and wounding of additional American and Iraqi personnel.”

Adios, Motherfucker. Thanks for the pics, Ex.

    And the democrats have soiled their collective panties because we gave them the business end of a missile vice pallets of cash.

  2. Roh-Dog says:

    As much as I am relieved the hand that killed my Brothers and Sisters is scattered in little pieces around BIAP, I am equally concerned that this will stir a horrific nest of vile repercussions.
    Chalk this up as a big W and bring ‘em home.
    All of them.

    • USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

      My gut tells me a some sort of U.S. presence will be necessary to oust Iranian influence in Iraq, lest they become more active with hopes that all American forces and personnel leave – so they can establish a foothold there.

      It’s not like the Iraqi’s will do anything about an Iranian presence in their own country.

      BIAP is about 23 miles from the U.S. Embassy, so it’s not unreasonable to believe Iraqi intelligence knew of his presence as well.

      • Hondo says:

        Road distance is 23.1km from BIAP to AMEMB Baghdad, which is a bit over 14 miles. However, the roads IVO BIAP aren’t particularly straight. Straight line distance between the two locations is around 10 miles.

        Made that trip a time or two some years ago. (smile)

    All the hand-wringing I see online is being pushed by the left reminds me of 1/15/91…the day before our forces commenced opening a large can of whoop-ass on Saddam’s Forces. I recall many uninformed people telling how its WW III ‘cuz of the size of their military. I went all NASCAR and told them “We (our military) got ’em covered” and “their military is about to get smaller”. After 8 years of Barry Bananas appeasement, they aren’t used to seeing an American President with a backbone.
    God bless all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines that defend these United States!!!

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      I remember hearing the snooze media pampered buffoons braying that we were no match for the Iraqi Military because they had just gone through an eight year war with Iran and we still handed them their asses on a burnt pallet.

      • Poetrooper says:

        In less time than it takes to name all the 2020 Dem candidates or the alphabet soup in a rainbow flag…

    • USMC Steve says:

      The Iranians also don’t learn. Except through pain.

      An Iranian army general officer in Iraq. That sounds like an act of war to me. That Iraqi who got dusted must have been in cahoots with this guy.

    • AW1Ed says:

      In January of ’91 Saddam had the fourth largest army in the world. By April ’93 he had the fourth largest army in Iraq.

    I like Trumps “top down” approach.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      That was A Message.

      Trump said “a warning” and then delivered a very specific smack.

      Quite a difference from “well, don’t you dare cross this here -other- Red Line!! Seriously, this time.”

      Anyone read Clancy, and remember “The Ryan Doctrine” ? I suspect that would be the next one. Top-down housecleaning.

      “You ordered the deaths of our people. I ordered the deaths of your top people. Knock it off.”

      I can imagine Trump’s “War Powers Act” notice to Congress…

      “I retaliated, under the authority delegated. I would ask for a Declaration of War, but the decapitation strikes wrecked the regime, bigly. The locals overthrew it, bigly. I sent emissaries to negotiate a cessation of hostilities, and they agreed, assuring me they would not pursue any further hostile acts. They asked for us to open an embassy and send an ambassador. I hereby nominate, and send to the Senate for confirmation, …”

      It is do-able.

      • MI Ranger says:

        Mailclerk,
        I seemed to have missed your Nominee: Was it her Honorable Nancee Pelosi?
        It would be just like President Trump to send a female to negotiate with Muslim traditionalist.

    • Steve1371 says:

      I don’t know how far the air port is from the embassy but I thought an air strike would be a good thing. I just thought it should be just outside the gate in the middle of that mob. I like the idea of going for the bigger fish. MAGA

  5. rgr769 says:

    Yay, three prime ‘Slamonazis sent to Hell in about only 12 hours.

    • Hondo says:

      Yeah. That’s . . . just . . . too . . . bad, isn’t it? (smile)

      Given the blood of innocents they have had on their hands due to support of terrorist activities, may they “enjoy” the personal attention of Shai’tan for all eterniity.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Must have missed the other two. I know they lost about 25 mixed Iranian and Iraqi militia in the retaliatory missile attacks. Who else was reduced to component parts?

      • Mick says:

        From the AP News article that I referenced below in my reply to 5th/77th FA:

        https://apnews.com/5597ff0f046a67805cc233d5933a53ed

        ‘The airport strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, and five others, including the PMF’s airport protocol officer, Mohammed Reda, Iraqi officials said.’

        ‘Two officials from the PMF said Suleimani’s body was torn to pieces in the attack, while they did not find the body of al-Muhandis. A senior politician said Soleimani’s body was identified by the ring he wore.’

  6. Hack Stone says:

    Well, at least the Iranians have enough cash on hand, thanks to President Obama, to send him off in style. To bad the Iranians did not learn the lesson that when America replaces a milquetoast President with a President who knows how to use the might of the US military, it is time to get on the Pain Train.

  10. JacktheJarhead says:

    I want to hear the spin on this from the MSM. What was the commander of the Iranian SF doing in Iraq? That would be like the commander of SOCOM being in Tehran right after a clandestine strike. Jeez, the Iranians are subtle! Good for us, that is how you respond to someone attacking your embassy! Maybe if Jimmy Peanut had done something similar in 1979 we would not be in this mess now. Adios douchebag, hope you are enjoying your 21 Virginians!

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    Ilhan Omar is upset about all of this. She’s going to “step in and stop Trump” somehow.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/omar-threatens-to-step-in-and-stop-trump-following-soleimani-killing

    At least we know where her real loyalties lie….

    • USMC Steve says:

      She couldn’t stop a runny nose. Trump could get her out of here if he would just get off his ass and act on the intel. Plenty of evidence she committed immigration fraud, making her an illegal alien, thus not able to hold a congressional seat. Then deport her back to Somalia. But he actually has to do something.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      “…against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” And we have plenty of both. Good time to GTFO of the ME. And, in my opinion, it is time to get the ME out of America. No other religion in the world has for their stated purpose to kill those that will not convert.

      Good linky Ex. Y’all make sure you check out the ABC Linky with the post and read what ol’ Da Nang Dick had to say. Maybe we should take all of our domestic enemies and give them a HANO over Baghdad.

      Someone please tell me it was Hellfire Missiles that took out the ragheads. It would be most appros if a Hellfire sent them to Hell.

      • Mick says:

        ‘US kills Iran’s most powerful general in Baghdad airstrike’

        https://apnews.com/5597ff0f046a67805cc233d5933a53ed

        ‘[…]

        The 62-year-old Soleimani was the target of Friday’s U.S. attack, which was conducted by an armed American drone, according to a U.S. official. His vehicle was struck on an access road near the Baghdad airport.

        […].’

        Being that this was a “drone attack”, the implication is that, yes, it was most likely a Hellfire missile that was used to take out this POS.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Oh, Dickie-birdbrain, the LOS himself, wants to know where Trump gets authorization to do such things, does he? Someone should fire his ass and soon, too.

        Is there not enough crap coming out of those idiots as it is?

        • Roh-Dog says:

          I’ve voted to fire Da Nang Dork at every opportunity, to no avail.
          The FSA/Lefties/Elite classes love that classless bastard.

        • USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

          Dickie needs to be told that President Trump got his authorization from the same place Obama did.

          They’ll never learn that once they set a precedent…

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      All I’d ever say to Ilhan Omar and her ilk is “ALLAH PIG SHIT!!!”

    Memo to Iranian General Qassem Soleimani,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTHERFUCKER!!!

  16. MI Ranger says:

    I loved Rose McGowan’s drunk ramblings. She apologized on Twitter (which Iranians are prohibited from using…except the Eyatollah) for killing their “Evil Man”. She claimed she was a prisoner in this country and 52% supported her, but she did not know how to leave.
    Hey Rose, here is a little advise on that…there is this thing called the internet, you can go on it and type “Buy plane ticket” and magically they remove funds from your fat bank account, and send you a receipt that allows you to go to an airport, get traumatized by government lackeys, and then board a contraption that magically transports you to thriving paradises away from the purgatory of Capitalism. I hear Venezuela is nice!

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Where was Rose’s righteous indignation when the JEF was doing this during his presidency?

      Yeah, I don’t remember it either….

      Fuck her and the rest of the Hollyweird “elite”…

    • AW1 Rod says:

      Rose McGowan is a Rehab Queen. I doubt the dumb bitch is even aware of her surroundings or what she’s babbling from one minute to the next. She’s a gibbering halfwit, and is to be ignored.

    One thing I note in the newsfeeds this morning: those who are upset we killed an enemy of our nation.

    They are enemies of our nation – and not a few of them are in government.

    If I were a political strategist, I’d make hay while the sun shines on their perfidy.

  21. Martinjmpr says:

    For the folks in the MSM wringing their hands and saying “Oh, Noes! Now the Iranians will attack us!” my question is: What the hell have they been doing for the last ~40 years or so?

      Do we have any talking sphincters in our mainstream media that AREN’T complete and total idiots?

          Just like how they screeched that Ronald Reagan was bringing us to a Nuclear War with the USSR nearly every day he was in Office.

    • thebesig says:

      Actually, there is a large difference between the NAZI’s and are following in Germany, and those of us here. There’s a big difference between what Adolf Hitler argued, and with what we are arguing here. Adolf Hitler created a false boogie man, and then focused resources towards that objective.

      He, that those that we oppose here, was on the left. He advocated me the policies that we are arguing against here. Gun control? Those in Berlin, in control, allied with Hitler, were in favor of that. Us? Nope.

      Killing the general responsible for many of the attacks against US interests, against international law? Against international customs that have existed for centuries? That is not being a Hitler. That attack would not have happened had the embassy, Empire interests, were not attacked.

      The only dummy that I’m seeing is the one who wrote the above post that I’m applying to.

      Do show up again, we’re looking for a chew toy. I look forward to dismantling your next drivel.

        The Nazi Party media and Propaganda wing did ALL it could to infiltrate and run every news outlet in Germany at the time just like today’s mainstream media and the D-rat Party…
        The Nazi Party was heavily embedded in German Education indoctrinating Children about as soon as they learned how to walk and talk…

      The media went as far to claim that the attack on the U.S. embassy was “Trump’s Benghazi”.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Yeah Benghazi, when 0bama hung up the phone and went to bed to get a good night’s sleep before jetting off in Air Force One to a rally in Vegas the next day while President Trump immediately sent reinforcements and 750 more Troops from Fort Bragg.

  28. Combat Historian says:

    20 Jan 2007. Five American soldiers assigned to MNSTC-I attending a provincial council meeting in Karbalah were kidnapped and murdered by a pro-Iranian Shiite militia group led by the Qazali Brothers and apparently acting under direct orders from Soleimani’s Quds Force.

      We’d roll people up with weapons, ammo, food, medical supplies, etc and after the initial tagging and bagging the State Department would come down and say “They are Iranian diplomats you have to let them go”.

      So they’d be released until we’d bag another group of them a month later. Got old fast.
