Killing an Islamic General; Adding to Impeachment

 Our New Year’s holiday week was interrupted by the killing of Iranian General Soleimani. The mass-murderer Islamic leader had rained down terror on the Middle East for more than 20 years, killing at least 600 Americans. Not everyone was pleased. A couple of candidates for president thought we should have arrested him and brought him here to stand trial.

Iran has been on a rampage for 40 years to dominate the region all the way to the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. You may remember when Iranians stormed our Embassy in Tehran in 1979 and held more than 50 Americans hostage for more than a year. Their goals have not changed.

Now, it’s debatable whether we should be in there. One view is that we should just leave ‘em alone. We don’t need the Middle East and their oil anymore. The other view is that we still have friends there, and we generally support our friends.

          Today the Iraqi Parliament called an emergency meeting and a few of them showed up. They voted to expel all American military from Iraq. I have a feeling that if it had been put to a vote of the whole country, instead of expelling Americans they would have voted to throw out the Iranians.

Speaker Pelosi still has the two Articles of Impeachment stuffed in her handbag. She has been waiting for the voters to get riled up against President Trump. Maybe you can blame it on the holidays but so far nobody seems to care. (Well, not nobody. But very few in addition to the ones who already wanted him impeached on Inauguration Day.) One reason is the idea of a President obstructing Congress once in a while has been around since Washington. Another reason is there’s nothing unusual about a “quid pro quo” in politics.

There’s a rumor Speaker Pelosi is digging around for another Article to add on. If she uncovers something serious, then that changes the story completely. But does she really think killing an Islamic terrorist General without telling her and the Islamic members of Congress is impeachable? I got my doubts.    

Historic quotes by Will Rogers:

          “Did you read all the New Year’s optimism in the papers today by all our leading men and bankers? Every one either a millionaire or an officeholder… Looks like just for the novelty one paper would print just what some poor man saw in store for the coming year.” DT #448, Jan. 2, 1928
