By ordering the rocket attack that killed top Iranian terrorist General Qassem Soleimani, President Trump committed an “act of war,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Soleimani has the documented blood of well over six hundred Americans on his hands, but it’s the United States who are the aggressors according to the self-anointed foreign policy expert.
“Last night, the President engaged in what is widely being recognized as an act of war against Iran, one that now risks the lives of millions of innocent people,” she claimed without evidence.
Widely recognized by who? Iran, that’s who.
Yet another example of the Democrats hitching their cart to the Iranian regime solely because they despise President Trump.
Last night the President engaged in what is widely being recognized as an act of war against Iran, one that now risks the lives of millions of innocent people.
Now is the moment to prevent war & protect innocent people – the question for many is how, publicly & Congressionally:

Ocasio-Cortez followed up that bad take with one even worse.
President Trump, in warning Iran against taking retaliatory actions for the killing of their terrorist general, confirmed that the United States was prepared to target 52 Iranian sites, some of which the United Nations Security Council identified as cultural heritage sites.
Responding to criticism by the liberal media over the selection of such targets, Trump did not waver.
“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” he fumed. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”
The current leader of the Democrat party, AOC, failing to recognize that the rhetoric is meant to intimidate the enemy, accused Trump of a ‘war crime.’
“Targeting cultural sites is a war crime,” she claimed. “They tell humanity’s story – that is why authoritarians target them. They want to erase history.”
A) Saying we could target such places is vastly different than actually attacking them and does not cross the threshold of a ‘war crime.’
B) While we’re on the topic of erasing history through culture, by all means, let’s discuss historical sites in the South you leftist authoritarians.
Targeting cultural sites is a war crime.
It should also go without saying that sites like Persepolis (& its PEOPLE) are not only treasures to Iranians, they are gifts to humanity.
They tell humanity’s story – that is why authoritarians target them. They want to erase history. https://t.co/C3tx6Wf8mZ

Democrats Sharing Common Cause With Iranian Terrorists
President Trump truly is a magician. Could you ever in your life have imagined American lawmakers sharing common cause with Iran, whose Parliament was just chanting “Death to America” for all the world to see?
It’s Trump that is the war criminal in their minds. An attack on a terrorist responsible for the deaths of hundreds of our brave soldiers is a ‘disproportionate‘ response according to them.
It took a man like Donald Trump, taking out a known terrorist, for the Democrats to respond with essentially, ‘Yea, that’s great, but Trump is the real enemy.’
These liberal extremists don’t belong in the country, much less representing our nation as lawmakers.
