Terrorists run for their lives in aftermath of Soleimani killing

If Democrats can't stop howling that President Trump's killing of Iranian terrorist chieftain Qassem Soleimani was some kind of failure that would mean war, maybe they should ask the terrorists on the ground over in Iraq.

If they can find them.  Turns out they're running for their lives.

Sara Carter has an important bit of news about how they're taking it:

U.S. officials have intercepted chatter and received confirmation that terrorist leaders in Iraq have been fleeing the region and have gone into hiding fearing United States intelligence capabilities after the successful airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani, according to multiple sources that spoke to SaraACarter.com.

Soleimani, the leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force, was killed early Friday morning as he stepped off his plane and headed to the SUV at the Baghdad Airport in Iraq. The U.S. developed extraordinary actionable intelligence to target the most wanted terrorist in the world and it was a 'precision strike' that caught the Iranian government off guard, said a White House official, who spoke on background due to the sensitive nature of their work.

This doesn't sound like the activity of people who are mobilizing for war.  Terrorists run toward war, not away from war, it's why so many are in the Middle East in the first place.  Remember all those "foreign fighters"?  These guys don't want to be anywhere near some U.S. drone radar or whatever it is that enables the rockets to zero in on miscreants and leave them grease spots on the desert floor.  They know there's not going to be a war, and more importantly, they know that with Iran's big terrorist dead, they no longer have any protection.  Counting on Iran to mobilize them to get "revenge" for Soleimani's killing?  These guys don't want to be around for it. 

Bottom line: They know that President Trump's deathblow to Soleimani was a deathblow to them.  There's no regrouping.  They're getting the hell out of Dodge at this point, and that's the move of desperate men.

It's hard to say what they'll end up doing next, but it's pretty obvious they know that Iraq's not the "scene" anymore.

Terrorists are a bellwether, and by their flight from Iraq, they're voting with their feet.  They're like cockroaches before an earthquake, running before the coming crush.  Their flight effectively says the jig is up, save yourselves if you can, there's no glory out there, just doom.

It makes Democrats look utterly stupid as they howl about Trump being a warmonger, a bad strategist, a blunderer, a guy who's going to get us all killed by taking out Soleimani.  They've since passed a resolution in the House seeking to curb Trump's wartime powers, in a sorry bid to tell Iran and its terrorist minions there's nothing to worry about.  (Apparently, it will fall flat in the Senate.)  Why they're doing this tells us a lot about what they fear most: not that Trump will fail, but that Trump is succeeding.  They are that malevolent, that they'd rather terrorists be aided than Americans be protected at long last from this ongoing scourge.
