Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) threw a tantrum Friday, criticizing President Trump for ordering the elimination of Iranian terror chief Qasem Solemaini. Accusing the president of “an act of war against Iran,” the loudmouth freshman representative said, “Right now is the moment to decide if you are pro-peace or not.”
AOC didn’t explain how opposing the removal of one of the world’s most aggressive warmongers is pro-peace. Solemaini was head of the Quds Force, a shadowy branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, which is responsible for state-sponsored terrorism all over the world. As well as backing Middle Eastern groups like Hezbollah, Quds has planned, attempted or carried out attacks in Afghanistan, India and the US; it’s also active in Venezuela.
In an extended Twitter rant, AOC claimed:
“Congress now has a moral and legal obligation to reassert its power to stop this war.”
In fact, there isn’t a war between the US and Iran for Congress to stop. There’s certainly been plenty of violence and terrorism, though — caused by people like Qasem Solemaini.
