President Trump told reporters Friday that the United States had killed Qasem Soleimani, one of Iran’s top military figures, in a bid to “stop a war.” The president, speaking at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, urged Iran not to retaliate.
“We did not take action to start a war,” he said.
So it goes something like this, see if I’m paying attention:
- Kill top general of the opposition forces.
- War stopped. QED
Other thoughts in the same vein:
- “I didn’t go running in traffic to get hit by a car, but to cross the street.”
- “I didn’t have unprotected sex to get pregnant, but to have some fun.”
