      Trump sent a message to terrorists, we can and will find you. Nothing wrong with that . I agree with Trump 100 percent.

          Meghan is so so frustrating. Yes, Sulleimani is/was part of Iranian state run terror BUT Trump still had a duty to get consent from Congress to proceed with this strike. Furthermore, acts like this, when they are not in the context of an imminent threat, just destabilize the region and the world at large. There are other ways to sanction hostile governments— we do we have to bomb the crap out of people?

                Regardless of the fact that thousands of U.S. military and innocent civilians died because of Suleimani, he was a General in the Iran Military. Killing him is different from killing Bin Laden. There will be consequences for this.

                from the Daily Kos:
                American military officials put the option of killing him — which
                they viewed as the most extreme response to recent Iranian-led violence
                in Iraq — on the menu they presented to President Trump.
                They didn’t think he would take it. In the wars waged since the Sept.
                11, 2001, attacks, Pentagon officials have often offered improbable
                options to presidents to make other possibilities appear more palatable.
                Aides said he worried that no response would look weak after repeated threats by the United States.
                When Mr. Trump chose the option of killing General Suleimani, top
                military officials, flabbergasted, were immediately alarmed about the
                prospect of Iranian retaliatory strikes on American troops in the
                region. It remains unclear if anyone in the administration ever challenged Trump’s terrible choice.
                So who is the bigger idiot here, trump, or the aides who suggested this to him in the first place?

                Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, 55, who is especially embroiled in the Trump-Ukraine affair, also has his eye on an End Times cleansing. “It is a never-ending struggle,” he told a Kansas church group, describing his work for the president. “Until the Rapture.”
                This is the back story that led to Pompeo and Pence putting strong pressure on Trump to assassinate Major General Soleimani and potentially start a war with Iran.
                www.washingtonpost.com/...
                Pompeo used Trump’s mental weakness and deep insecurities to lead him into war with Iran.

                  So Obama kills 4 US citizens in a drone strike and it's fine, Trump takes out a terrorist and he's crucified by the left. The greatest threat to this country are these freakin' liberals.

                      Meghan McCain is like a child at the adults table. Why is she there? Her presence and comments degrade the conversation... This is a time for fully fledged grown ups to be doing the talking and thinking. She needs to be back on faux.

                        This show should really change its name to the "aftermath" because this hatred for Trump is because the butcher of Benghazi lost. Why don't you also report the seven or so DemoKKKrats that are asking Nancy to end this charade and send the articles to the Senate. You won't do that will you? You wonder why you are fake news. I know it's hard to see the trees for the forest, but at least try. It will keep going for a while? Yes it will and It did for the eight years Obama funded it and previous administrations also. So please, try to tell the truth. I know it's hard and doesn't fit your narrative, but....

                          one solution. US should get out from there from the first place. it's their own fault, trying to play "nice" but in fact US are after their nuclear. so yeah it's not iran, it's not iraq, it's started by US. US always try to act superior. stop being such a snobby, americans. one day it's eat u guys up

So no, you idiots he has not been im impeached. Either way poor old Nancy is screwed anyway. Until the senate gets the papers to start a trail, he has not been anything. Do your can research and stop lying to everyone. Joy behar is a liar, liar liar, liar, like the rest of them are. The show if you to call it that should be impeached forever!!!!

                                            It doesn’t matter what President Trump does democrats will always hate on President Trump. If he had decided not to do anything they would be complaining about that too.

                                            Iran has been taking money from the US for a long time. They have shot down our drones and raided the US Embassy. President Trump tried to negotiate with them but they refused to speak with the President. The President gave Iran plenty of chances to get there acted together and they didn’t. So after another threat from Iran President Trump took action and killed a very dangerous terrorist. What President Trump did is show Iran that they can’t shoot down our drones, kill our troops, and attack the US Embassy and not expect consequences.

                                            Iran hates America and has hated America for a very long time. Iran wanted war with America long before President Trump took out there top general.

                                            If war breaks out you all will blame your President instead of realizing that it was Iran that wanted war with America.

                                            You can’t stop a war with people that hate you and want to see your country destroyed.

                                                            That man was responsible for the killing of over 600 Americans in the Middle East and somehow the US is the bad guy? He was a threat to everyone in America and that decision was made to stop the killing of many more. I remember when Osama Bin Laden was killed no one question anything. Now, the tables have turned and all of the sudden the left is saying that the killing of a terrorist that again, was responsible for the killing of 600 Americans is bad.

You think you know but you do not. You feel sorry for these people but you understand so little. The Iranians you talk to are the upper crust people, the cream. Those with access to education, Internet etc. So you think all the people are like them , but you do not know how it is to live in a country where the vast majority are poor. They are not like you, even though to you it may seem so. They do not think like you or act like you. If I were you, I would stop undermining my own president and start getting with reality. Life is hard, I too feel sorry for the good Iranians but you guys in America are ignorant about the nature of mankind. You will live to regret it if you do not wizen up. From someone who knows the truth, having has a massively rude awakening from my sheltered life by facing the true nature of reality. You have no idea.

Forget about me being a Muslim or Muslim people, he’s killing innocents. All solemeini did was protect his country. He had to kill Americans cause they were oppressing Iran and Iraq’s a lot of times. He was being a soldier. A loyal soldier. I don’t see how that is a problem. He was AGAINST Isis, not with them. He tried to stop them. How is he a terrorist. I’m sorry, I’m sure many people don’t agree with me but I still have to say something. This is terrible. I’m sorry this is terrible. Trump, you didn’t make Iran look bad, you have awakened it’s people. And this media junk is not going to stop the protests and the revenge Iran has planned for you. They will avenge their hero. Just watch trump, watch.

But people like the ones in this comment section. Would rather send them a cargo plane full of cash and nuclear capabilities. I hope Trump turns their country into Nazi Germany 1945. The real threat to our country is the Karl Marx philosophies, that the Democratic Party has fallen in love with.

When Dems expect USA to coward under a murderous thug & regime who killed & maimed thousands of American soldiers. FYI, he was in Iraq not Iran & planning more death & destruction.
