Added bonus: Aside from wacking Soleimani, the leader of the muzzie fuckers who directly attacked the embassy, is also taking a dirt nap.
What’s left of Soleimani and his vehicle:

President Donald Trump ordered a U.S. military airstrike Thursday that killed Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, in an airstrike near Baghdad’s airport, the Pentagon said in a statement.
“At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
The Pentagon said that Soleimani was “actively developing plans” to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq.
Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of Kata’ib Hezbollah, known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an Iraqi paramilitary group that attempted to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Dec. 31, 2019, was also reportedly killed in the drone strike. The Pentagon said in its statement that Soleimani directed the attack on the embassy.
Iraqi state television was first to announce that Soleimani and al-Muhandis had been killed in the strike.
A PMF spokesman attributed the drone strikes to American and Israeli forces.
“The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani,” said Ahmed al-Assadi, a spokesman for PMF, according to Reuters.
The Iranian government supports Kata’ib Hezollah.
Soleimani’s death is certain to escalate tensions in the Middle East. Soleimani’s Quds Force, which operate as a covert arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, have long provided support to terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, including Hezbelloh, Hamas, and radical militias.
The attack on the embassy was a response to U.S. military strikes two days earlier on Kata’ib strongholds two days earlier.
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said earlier Thursday that the U.S. military would carry out preemptive strikes if necessary against Kata’ib Hezbollah, which he said was planning further operations against U.S. forces in Iraq.
Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and facilitated terrorism.
And in case there’s any doubt over the mastermind of the embassy attack:
And of course, the DemLeft contingent is having a shit fit over the dead terrorist:
After almost a decade as an undercover CIA officer in the Middle East and South Asia, I never thought I would see the Iranian government be able to manipulate members of Congress, Democratic presidential candidates and the Western media. @dcexaminer https://t.co/fgGRYD4VjY
