But, we must not risk likely Japanese retaliation and sure Tojo is a bad guy but he is revered by the folks there . . . therefore I’m sending the Emperor $1.5 billion in cash and a very sharp letter of rebuke!
“What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Soleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation, and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict?”
(Elissa Slotkin, US Congress, former CIA analyst)
We have one question for Congressperson Elissa Slotkin:
“What, if anything, would you and your ilk in the Washington Establishment (from both parties) ever consider a ‘sufficient’ attack or threat to America that would make retaliation a necessity despite the risk? Would a little old sneak attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbor be worth ‘the likely retaliation’ and the ‘potential’ to pull us into ‘protracted conflict’?
(Yes, there is a ‘different breed’ of Americans heading some “I’m portent” parts of our federal government today.)
It appears that if there were ever easy marks for the deadliest form of blackmail in the history of the world, it would be Ms. Slotkin, her Democratic Party colleagues and the entire Washington Establishment.
And these are the kind of moronic cowards America has had — in the CIA, previous presidential administrations, and currently in the the entire ‘Washington Establishment’!!!!!!!!!???!
Yes! Be afraid America…be very afraid!
Elissa Slotkin is a Democrat, representing Michigan’s 8th District, including East Lansing and a large part of Lansing.
She has stated that she was motivated to challenge two-term Republican incumbent Mike Bishop when she saw him smile at a White House celebration after he and the Republicans in the House of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Immensely credentialed (Cornell & Columbia, former CIA analyst)…(a “progressive” to her soul; probably one of the Democratic Party’s most educated, experienced fools in Washington).
Rep. Slotkin has probably made many stupid comments since her election to Congress in 2017, but this one betrays the value of her “keen” experience as a CIA analyst and a part of both the GW Bush and Obama administrations. dlh
PS: note testimonial from person known to this publication after article below
In a bizarre series of posts on Twitter, Democrat Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin has admitted being part of a network that kept Al Quds force leader Qassem Soleimani alive.
Soleimani was recently assassinated by the Trump administration after a multi-decade long terror campaign against the United States and its allies.
Rep. Slotkin (D-MI 8) admitted on January 3rd that despite Soleimani’s contribution to the slaughter of her colleagues and friends, she did not think he was worth targeting.
“As a former Shia militia analyst who served multiple tours in Iraq and worked at the White House under both Presidents Bush and Obama, and later at the Pentagon, I participated in countless conversations on how to respond to Qassem Soleimani’s violent campaigns across the region.
“If you worked on the Middle East over the past 20 years, you dealt with the growing organization and sophistication of Soleimani’s covert and overt military activities, which have contributed to significant destabilization across the region.
“I watched friends and colleagues get hurt or killed by Iranian rockets, mortars and explosive devices that were provided to Iraqi proxies and used against U.S. forces under Soleimani’s guidance.
“We watched as his power increased and he brought strength and capability to groups in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, and to smaller cells around the Middle East and the world, with devastating consequences.
“What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Soleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation, and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict?

Slotkin was one of the Democrat Congressmen who pretended to be undecided on impeachment to save on ire from her constituents. She then voted in favor of it, despite admitting in early December she had not then read the articles of impeachment.
