Last week, Democrats pointed to the huge crowds attending the Soleimani as proof that Iranians loved the mullahs. Since then, that narrative hasn’t just collapsed. It’s been shattered into tiny bits. This article highlights how repressive regimes control the media to the point of turning them into propaganda factories.

The article starts by saying “At least two Iranian journalists at a state-owned media outlet reportedly resigned from their jobs, and another left a while back, apologizing for ‘the 13 years I told you lies‘ to her supporters as Tehran grapples with the fallout from protests stemming from a cover-up of its accidental downing of a Ukrainian airliner.”

The article continues:

Gelare Jabbari posted an apology on an Instagram that appears to have been deleted. “It was very hard for me to believe that our people have been killed,” the post read, according to The Guardian. “Forgive me that I got to know this late. And forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies.”

Nazee Moinian joined in with the chorus:

“The Iranian protesters have had enough of this. They don’t want less. They don’t want more. They want out,” Moinian said. “They don’t want this regime to represent them. Actually, this regime doesn’t represent the people.

Last week, Democrats blamed President Trump for bringing down the Ukrainian jetliner:

Tulsi Gabbard is supposedly one of the sensible presidential candidates on the Democrats’ side. The above video disproves that foolishness. This foolishness isn’t just confined to the Democrats’ presidential candidates. It’s found in the Democrats serving on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, aka HPSCI. Jackie Speier is a member of that committee. Here’s what she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer:

President Trump’s “provocative actions”? What the hell is she talking about? President Trump gave the order to kill the nastiest terrorist in the world. When the time was right, that order was fulfilled. The day that killing the world’s nastiest terrorist is considered a provocative action is a frightening day. That’s the day that Democrats will have shown that they’re utterly spineless.

There is a possibility that Iran will attack the US for killing Gen. Soleimani. It isn’t likely but it’s possible. Democrats apparently make military decisions based on what longshot possibilities might happen. They act like the US military isn’t the best in the world. Democrats apparently think that diplomacy that isn’t backed up by the legitimate possibility of military retribution is the right path to peace and harmony in the Middle East. We know that because that’s the path they’ve taken in the recent past.

Like most Americans, I don’t want the US military tied up in endless wars. That doesn’t mean, though, that I want the bad actors in the world to think that we’re a nation of pacifists, either. Coupling a devastating set of sanctions that’s brought Iran’s terrorist activities to a halt with a well-timed military strike against a man that Iran thought was untouchable has Iran on the brink of a tipping point. The previous administration never got close to this point with Iran.
