To be clear, the slain Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was a terrorist.

According to the United States, Soleimani led a terrorist organization as a branch of the Iranian state.

One of the main reasons Soleimani deserved this title was due to the Iraqi insurgency that claimed so many American lives during the Iraq War.

Soleimani was responsible for the deadly improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that left many men and women in the U.S. military with scars both visible and invisible.

Some of those men and women of the U.S. military may never heal.

More from Western Journalism:

You can thank Qassem Soleimani for that.

And yet, we hear him being talked about as if he was some sort of legitimate military figure and as if what we did was an “assassination.”

If you need a primer on what Soleimani was responsible for, all you need to do is listen to Jason Church.

Church is a double-amputee veteran who’s running in the Republican primary for the nomination to represent Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District.

He lost part of both his legs while fighting in Afghanistan thanks to an IED.

In a viral video after Soleimani’s death, the retired Army captain gave his thoughts on the strike against the Iranian terrorist, and thanked President Donald Trump for taking Soleimani out.
