    What would you consider an act of war? So imagine if Iran carried out killing of American official, what would you consider that to be? An act of peace! The only thing Americans know best is to kill and kill...

      No evidence! I guess it's America.. This is exactly the lies they regurgitated when Iraq was invaded. Brainwashed America. Well America has waged endless wars againt innocent people so should the American bad guys be taken out? America is going to destroy itself

          I hope to G-d that you fucking war mongering idiots are ostracized and have your heads shaved when this is finally over. Collaborators should all be punished.

            Obama killed Osama alright, all good...”U.S.A, U.S.A...”
            President Donald Trump takes out Al Baghdadi and that other POS Soleimani...”Orange Man Bad...”
            Why do ex-celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg have such selective memories?

                  I don't recall the president campaigning on not killing awful terrorists, I say that after watching numerous Iranian Americans and Iranian Canadians saying they are glad hes dead!

                      Obama used drone strikes. His strikes killed more innocent civilians than actual targets.

                                        Iran literally bombed the US embassy that’s why this trump did that. Not like trump just started this fuckin war 😂

                                          It’s hard to respect all of these women’s opinions since it would kill them to agree with a single thing trump has done. Not everything he does is negative. Severe trump derangement syndrome

                                            Joy thinks the timing is fishy because of impeachment. So does she think Trump told Iran to kill an American so Trump could take out number one terrorist and get people’s attention off of impeachment? Never thought I see the day that people would make a evil man who has killed thousands just because their gay or over religious beliefs a hero because they hate Trump. Plus there isn’t going be WW3 like media screaming.

                                                      The View is the most treasonous show from Hollywood.

                                                        Regardless, the Iranian people hate Americans even more now and want us dead. So that’s always a threat.

Afterwards, when the dust settled, and there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and there were no ties between Sadam and the tower attacks, you would think she'd at least have the human decency to apologize publicly for believing a lie. But nope, just carried on 15 years, and still at it I see. What a Shammmmmm...

Killing him is different from killing Bin Laden. There will be consequences for this.

It was a misjudgement on their part.. However it's unacceptable that trump did not offer sympathy to the families affected.. Only a few infantile remarks were made! so now what?? what gives the WH the authority to take out generals or heads of state in other countries.. ?

When will Amerikkka deal with its own internal issues? There are many so-called Soleimani’s right here in Amerikkkan soil! The common white lie and America’s quest for American Imperialism throughout the world; but American citizens are too dam stupid to clearly understand neocolonialism.............
