By now, you probably know that the American Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq was stormed yesterday by hundred of Radical Muslims, prompting our American President, Donald J. Trump to take decisive action, sending in Army Apache Helicopters and 100 Marines to handle the situation…and it is a good thing that he did.
Breitbart.com reports that
Several militia commanders loyal to Iran were spotted in the mob, including Hadi al-Amiri, head of the state-sponsored Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) umbrella organization for paramilitary groups. At least one sitting member of the Iraqi parliament also participated in the attack.

Iran and its terrorist proxies in Iraq were not without support from the Iraqi government, which is teetering on the verge of collapse after months of protests from Iraqis angered by Iranian influence over their country. Outgoing Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, who technically resigned in late November but has not yet been replaced, denounced the U.S. airstrikes against Kataib Hezbollah as “sinful,” the same term used by Grand Ayatollah Sistani.
“The Iraqi government condemns this act and considers it a violation of its sovereignty and a grave violation of the coalition forces’ rules of action, including the American forces, by carrying out operations without the approval of the Iraqi government,” said a statement issued by Abdul-Mahdi’s office on Monday.
Observers in Baghdad found it suspicious that the embassy attackers were able to penetrate the “Green Zone” safe area without resistance from Iraqi security forces, who usually repel angry crowds that attempt to enter the area:

Iraqi Interior Minister Yassine al-Yasseri appeared at the embassy to inspect the scene but made no apparent effort to halt the attack. After a few hours, a small group of Iraqi soldiers arrived in armored vehicles and urged the mob to move back from the embassy, without taking action to disperse the protest. Iraqi riot police reportedly attempted to reach the embassy but were blocked by the mob.
Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi belatedly warned against attacks on foreign embassies on Tuesday and asked the demonstrators to leave, promising that violence and vandalism would be punished.
Excuse us if we do not hold our breaths waiting for that to happen, Prime Minister.
We don’t have to.
This time, we have an actual American President.
FoxNews.com reports that
Speaking to reporters just hours after dozens of Iran-backed Iraqi Shiite militiamen and their supporters broke into the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, President Trump on Tuesday night vowed that the situation “will not be a Benghazi” — a pointed reference to the deadly 2012 embassy attack in Libya on the Obama administration’s watch, after officials at the embassy had requested enhanced security for weeks.
“It’s been handled very well,” Trump said as he walked into New Year’s Eve celebrations at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. “The Marines came in. We had some great warriors come in; they did a fantastic job. They were there instantaneously, as soon as we heard. They came immediately. It’s in great shape. This will not be a Benghazi. Benghazi never should have happened. This will never, ever be a Benghazi. … As soon as we saw there was a potential for a problem, they got in.”
Trump added: “Things are in great shape. … I want to thank the Iraqi government. They really stepped up.”
Iran, Trump said, “should want peace more than anybody,” and any conflict “would go very quickly.” But, Trump said he did not see such a fight materializing.
Earlier yesterday, Fox News reported that
Defense officials say that the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division has been issued orders to deploy to Kuwait amid unrest in Baghdad; up to 4,000 paratroopers may be deployed to the region, with at least 500 already flying out.
Hence, President Trump’s assessment of the chances that the “mourners” as the failing New York Times called them, were not feeling froggy.
What a refreshing change from the Administration of his predecessor, Former (Thank God!) President Barack Hussein Obama.
Do you remember Hillary’s appearance before the Benghazi Hearings when she said,
With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?
What that statement by Secretary of State Clinton showed, was a pathological predilection for dishonesty, insincerity, and inappropriateness, not only on her part, but the whole Obama Administration, as well, from the top on down.
They all knew that the cause of the attacks was not some stupid Youtube Video, but a full-blown Muslim Terrorist Attack.
However, for the sake of Political Expediency…and the re-election of President Barack Hussein Obama and the legacy of his rapidly failing Foreign Policy, known as Smart Power!, they had to quickly come up with an excuse for their liability in the deaths of those four brave Americans.
The words “reckless handling” do not even begin to cover the callous, Machiavellian way that Hillary Clinton and her boss, President Barack Hussein Obama, left those Americans to die at the hands of Muslim Barbarians that fateful evening at the U.S. Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, for the sake of political expediency.
So, why do the deaths of these four Americans “still matter”, all these years later?
As I finish writing today’s post, my mind considers the possibility of Hillary Clinton or a Far Left Democrat just like her someday becoming the Leader of the Free World, and a great many thoughts enter my head…some of them even repeatable.
I remember the image of a lone terrorist, brandishing a machine gun, standing in front of the burning Benghazi Consulate.
I also remember the image of Benghazi Barbarians dragging a murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens through the streets, taking pictures every few yards, with their cell phones.
My mind envisions the image of two brave Americans, up on a roof holding off 100 Muslim Terrorists, trying desperately to hold out for help which was denied to them, until finally the overwhelming numbers which comprised the horde of barbarians, murdered them as well.
I imagine Ambassador Stevens’ elderly mother, making the trip from the West Coast to the East Coast to pick up the lifeless body of her abused and murdered son, whom she and her entire family were so proud of.
Finally, I remember the show of hypocrisy involving members of Obama’s anti-American Administration solemnly welcoming the bodies of those brave Americans home.
Former Secretary Clinton…the truth STILL makes a big difference…to the families of those that were so savagely murdered that fateful night…and to the millions of Americans who still believe in this “Shining City on a Hill”.
We average Americans know the truth, which is why the Main Stream Media is currently running an unprecedented offensive against President Donald J. Trump, while ignoring the crimes and seditious treason practiced by members of the Obama Administration, some of which continues to this very day.
In fact, given the fact that they left those Americans to die, they should be ashamed to even show their faces in public.
But, of course, their deaths do not matter because to them, they were “political expediencies”.
To President Trump, our Embassy Staff, the guards, and those he sent to rescue them yesterday, are AMERICANS.
HAVE A BLESSED AND HAPPY NEW YEAR’S DAY, EVERYONE!
Until He Comes,
