Cruz Trolls Democrats With Senate Resolution Praising Soleimani Mission

Excerpt:

Senator Ted Cruz is promoting a resolution commending the Trump administration for its mission to take out Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. In doing so he is daring the Senate Democrats to oppose it. It is the perfect antidote to the criticism the left has voiced since the news of Soleimaniís death was announced.

If Democrats decide to show disapproval of the resolution, they run the risk of showing disdain for those who carried out the mission to rid the world of Soleimani. The best part is that the resolution is ďstructured and worded the same way as a 2011 resolution that commended the Obama administration for killing Bin Laden, which received unanimous support in the Senate.Ē Itís an on the nose gesture to get Democrats to acknowledge that the mission was a good thing but it is something that needs to be done. The Democrats can suck up their Trump Derangement Syndrome for long enough to do the right thing and honor those who took the risk and carried out the mission.

If the Senate could come together and unanimously pass a resolution in 2011 during Obamaís administration surely they can do the same now. No one is going to think the Democrats suddenly support President Trump on anything but the voters want to see politicians work together. This is an easy way to do that. So far, the reaction of most Democrats has been less than admirable. All of the top candidates running for president have made a point of issuing statements against the mission, mostly because of the bad Orange Man. Elizabeth Warren even had to walk back her statement on Soleimaniís murderous record because the far left reacted badly to that. The left not only didnít want him taken out, they want to re-write history to make him a decent human being. Itís ridiculous but, sadly, expected in Trumpís America.

Some Democrats are busy huffing and puffing about stopping President Trump from further action. They voice fears of retaliation. This completely ignores that for years, even before Trump was elected, Iran has been behind the attacks and murders of American military members and civilians alike. Soleimani was the mastermind of the attacks. Trump is not a hawkish president, as Democrats know. They just want to play to the far left now and seek approval for their reaction to the mission. Itís a very cynical way to serve their constituents.

I just filed a resolution to prevent Trump from starting a war with Iran. The President wants to pretend that Congress doesn't exist, but it's our clear Constitutional duty to debate and vote before allowing him to rush into an unnecessary war.

Having the Democrats go on record as to where they stand is not "trolling".
