Qassem Soleimani was a killer and terrorist who commanded the IRGC and surrogate forces that have destabilized the entire Middle East. We should not mourn his death.
I applaud the decisive decision from President Donald Trump and Secretary Mike Pompeo to strike back on behalf of America, our interests and our allies. This action has raised fears that Iran will inevitably retaliate. As a result, the United States is deploying 3,500 service members to the region.
Please join me in praying for the safety of our troops being sent in harm’s way, those service members already deployed overseas, our leaders and for a peaceful resolution to the mounting tensions in the Middle East.
God bless our troops, our leaders and the United States of America.
