Shortly after it was announced President Trump ordered an airstrike to take out Iranian terrorist general Qasem Soleimani, a man responsible for over 600 American deaths, New Mexico’s Sen. Martin Heinrich took to Twitter to goad on a war with Iran.
Despite the need to retaliate against the region following attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, which due to Trump deploying Marines, did not end up as another Benghazi in 2012, that did not satisfy Heinrich. In the 2012 Benghazi, Libya attack, American Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs were killed by radical Islamic terrorists.
According to American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, taking out Soleimani prevented “imminent attacks” he was planning on American diplomats and officials. He also said, “the risk of doing nothing shows weakness.”
But Heinrich seemed to goad on, and almost wish for war with Iran, writing on Twitter, “Trump just lit a match in the world’s largest powder keg. Let’s hope that there is a fire extinguisher and I just can’t see it.”
Heinrich supported Obama’s failed “Iran Deal,” which directly funded terrorism with $150 billion to the terrorist leaders of the failed state. At the time, Heinrich said he was “confident” in the wreckless agreement
