‘The Five’ panel gets heated over Trump’s Soleimani airstrike


WAS HAPPENING, BUT HE WAS PLANNING A VERY MAJOR ATTACK, AND WE GOT HIM.>>Pete: THAT WAS PRESIDENT TRUMP EXPLAIN WHY HE TOOK ACTION TO KILL YOUR BRAND’S TOP GENERAL, HE DID IT TO HOLD BACK A WAR, BUT HIS CRITICS ARE PILING ON.>>BUT WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL OPPOSITION, ENTERING INTO ANOTHER MIDDLE EAST WAR.>>I WOULD ANTICIPATE THE PERSIAN GULF WAR WILL BEGIN ANEW.>>THIS ONE OFF ACTION CAN HAVE UNBELIEVABLY HORRIFIC CONSEQUENCES. THE NUMBER ONE, THERE WILL BE DEAD AMERICANS, DEAD CIVILIAN AMERICANS AS A RESULT OF THIS.>>IT IS NOT JUST SERVICE MEMBERS, ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE WALKING PRIME TARGETS FOR IRANIAN RETALIATION.>>Lawrence: ACCUSING PRESIDENT TRUMP AS USING THE AIR STRIKE AS IMPEACHMENT, TWEETING SO WHAT IF TRUMP ONCE MORE, KNOWS IT IS AT LEAST A WAR AND NEEDS A DISTRACTION.” OH, MY GOD. PETE, TYPICALLY WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING LIKE THIS, THE COUNTRY COMES TOGETHER, YOU PUT POLITICS ASIDE. OF COURSE, THEY CAN HAVE THE DEBATE IF THE PRESIDENT SHOULD DECLARE WAR, BUT ACCUSING THE PRESIDENT OF USING THIS FOR A BLOCK FOR IMPEACHMENT?>>Pete: THE WHOLE IDEA OF HIM BEING COMMANDER IN CHIEF, THERE WAS A COMMENTATOR TODAY THAT SAID RIGHT ACTION, WRONG COMMANDER IN CHIEF. AND IT DOES NOT MATTER THE DECISION THAT IS MADE. THERE WAS LITERALLY JONATHAN ON ANOTHER NETWORK THAT SAID, THE IMPLICATION IS, I WOULD RATHER HAVE THE CORRECT COMMANDER IN CHIEF, MEANING HILLARY CLINTON AND THE WRONG ACTION. AND SUMS UP PRECISELY HOW THEY VIEW HIM, THE REALITY IS, THE COMMENTARY IS TRUE. HE MADE THE RIGHT CALL. HE MADE A CALL BASED ON ADVISORS AROUND HIM WHO BELIEVE THIS IS AN IMMINENT THREAT AND SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE HE SAW A POLICY ACTION TAKEN UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHERE SOVEREIGN AMERICAN SOIL WHERE THERE WAS A CONSULATE OR AN EMBASSY THAT WAS THREATENED THEN NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY. DISMISSED BY AN INTERNET VIDEO AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR LATER ON. HE SAID IF YOU’RE GOING TO TRY THAT. AND WE KNOW WHAT THEY DO, IRAN 40 YEARS AGO USE THE EMBASSY IN TEHRAN AS A LAUNCHING OFF POINT FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. THE EMBASSY IS MEANINGFUL, IT IS SOVEREIGN AMERICAN SOIL. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. AND AS A RESULT, I SEE THE SIGNS IN FRONT OF ME, AND I’M GOING TO COMPENSATE. I WILL SEND THE MARINES, I WILL SEND THE 82ND AIRBORNE, WHICH HE DID KNOWING THEY HAD INTELLIGENCE ON THE LINE. IT LOOKED LIKE A BIGGER REACTION THAN PEOPLE THOUGHT AS A RESULT, THEY KNEW WHAT WAS COMING NEXT. THIS WAS SOMETHING INTENTIONAL, BECAUSE HE DID NOT, IMAGINE IF HE HAD NOT ACTED. THE AMOUNT OF NEGLIGENCE HE WOULD BE CHARGED WITH FOR KNOWING ABOUT THE GATHERING THREAT AND NOT STEPPING UP.>>Emily: THERE BEEN THREATS FROM HIM FOR DECADES, THAT’S WHY I’M HARPING ABOUT KNOWING MORE ABOUT THIS. BECAUSE I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WHY THIS TIME WAS DIFFERENT WITH ALL OF THE POTENTIAL DOWNSIDES THAT WILL COME FROM THE STRIKE. LOOK –>>Pete: LIKE IN 2011, THERE WERE DOWNSIDES THAT CAME FROM THAT TOO.>>Emily: WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT 2011, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT TODAY.>>Pete: WHY CAN’T YOU SAY THIS IS A BAD GUY WHO IS DEAD AND THAT IS A GOOD THING?>>Emily: BECAUSE A CONSEQUENCES THAT COME FROM IT COULD HAVE STRATEGIC AND NEGATIVE IMPACTS ON THE UNITED STATES THAT OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS. THIS IS A CONSEQUENTIAL DECISION THAT AMERICAN ADMINISTRATION HAS TAKEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST SINCE THE DECISION TO INVADE IRAQ IN 2003, AND I HAVE NOT SEEN THE STRATEGIC PLANNING FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THAT MEANS THEY KNOW WHAT WILL COME NEXT.>>Lawrence: IT IS ONE THING TO SAY THAT YOU NEED MORE INFORMATION, BUT YOU HAVE OBAMA FORMER OFFICIALS LIKE BEN ROGUE SAYING THAT THEY QUESTION THE PRESIDENT STRATEGY, THE COMPETENCE TO LEAD.>>Dana: THAT WILL HAPPEN, AND PRESIDENTS CANNOT WORRY. THEY HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON THE INFORMATION THAT THEY HAVE, THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT THEY HAVE AND THE TIMING, AND THAT IS NOT FOR THEM TO FIGURE THAT OUT RIGHT NOW, THE OTHER THING IS, IF THERE HAD BEEN AN ATTACK BASED ON SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT KNEW ABOUT AND DID NOT ATTACK, WHAT YOU THINK THE 2020 DEMOCRATS WOULD HAVE SAID INSTEAD? IT WOULD’VE BEEN A DIFFERENT ADMINISTRATION BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH TOUGHER THEY WOULD BE. IT IS DIFFICULT WHEN IT HAPPENS IN THE MIDDLE OF A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. TO THE POINT IS THAT THE CONGRESSWOMAN FROM MINNESOTA SAID THAT IT MAY BE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS JUST TRYING TO CREATE A DISTRACTION, I THINK YOU CAN ARGUE PLEASE SAY THAT FROM SEPTEMBER UNTIL NOW, THE BIGGEST DISTRACTION IN AMERICA HAS BEEN IMPEACHMENT. THAT WAS ACTUALLY A DISTRACTION. AND I ALSO THINK THAT THERE IS MORE STRATEGIES BEHIND THIS BECAUSE OF SOMETHING YOU POINTED OUT, PETE, THAT IN APRIL OF 2019, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DESIGNATES SOLEIMANI AND HIS GROUP AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. I THINK THAT PROBABLY WILL LOOK BACK AND FIND THE HISTORY IS WRITTEN ABOUT THIS TIME THAT THERE WAS A LOT MORE STRATEGY THAN WE THOUGHT. BUT YOU CAN’T PLAN EVERYTHING OUT. SO YES, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHERE THINGS ARE GOING. SPEAK TO THE POINT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS THAT WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT THIS IS THE S ESCALATION, WHAT HAVE THE IRANIANS BEEN DOING? STEADILY ESCALATING AND BECOMING BOLDER WITH THEIR ACTIONS AGAINST US STARTING WITH OIL TANKERS AND THEN THE OIL PROCESSING FACILITIES AND THEN U.S. POSITIONS, AND THEN AN ALL-OUT ATTACK THAT KILLED A U.S. CONTRACTOR AND THEN AN ATTACK ON THE U.S. EMBASSY. SO I ALSO DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN OUT OF THE BLUE WE QUESTION THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY WHEN APPARENTLY ESPECIALLY IN DOMESTIC MATTERS THEY ARE TO BE ABSOLUTELY BELIEVED AT ALL POINTS. IT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE INVOLVEMENT THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN WE ARE NOT TO TRUST THEM. WHEN THEY HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE COMING OUT THAT A MAJOR ATTACK NECESSITATED THE PREEMPTION WITH THE RISK. SO WHY NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN DO WE NEED MORE INFORMATION WHEN WE HAVE IT COUPLED WITH IRANIAN BEHAVIOR AND DECISIONS IN THESE LAST YEAR OR SO HAVE ESCALATED, WHY WOULD WE NOT BELIEVE THAT?>>Lawrence: 2020 DEMOCRATS LASHING OUT AT PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR KILLING THE IRANIAN TOP COMMANDER. HITTING BACK. WE WILL DISCUSS NEXT ON “THE FIVE.” ♪ ♪ But right now, is not the time
to talk about it.

  1. I praise Trump for standing up and showing Iran not to mess with USA!! Anybody who thinks that we didn't have the right to strike is stupid and a coward. He had a lot of USA blood on his hands.

  2. Americans are becoming idiots stop with this right decision wrong president narrative this will be justified harshly. Push to know more and stop swallowing the words provided by the prompt on the screen. Harsh truth to swallow but this is another act of arrogance that i doubt will be written to be told.

  3. I do not support regime change you better prove it well beforhand b4 you do this kinda thing.. ESPECIALLY if you want to return the Republic to its former glory..

  4. These hawkish critics would criticise Trump if he did hands on healing! He's often showed constraint but in this instant he clearly did the right thing! Hypocritical scum oppose this!

  5. I don’t like predator drone strikes unless they are in direct support of our ground troops. If we have assets on the ground they (Brass)will not fire the missiles without just cause. Having said that , I don’t have the facts, but this is not a game, and Trump isn’t playing.

  6. Arch duke of Austria assassination lead to world war one. So assassinations are known to cause train wrecks. So like sneaks we assassinated not only this general but an Iraqi player also with a drone. If Trumps team of warmongers know this and are prepared that's one thing but if they're blind idiots doing it to get another term in office then this country is in for a decades long mess. The Iranians don't have to win the battles to win the war all they have to do is turn the spigot off. Like the Mel Gibson movie, the little guy with the glasses down with the pigs will turn the screws. The west will get the question who runs barter town? They'll be forced to answer " Master Blaster runs barter town" Say it louder MASTER BLASTER RUNS BARTER TOWN. Every one thinks the U.S. is the almighty with big bad military machine? Not without oil, and not with out gold how many trillions are we in the hole for?

  7. F**k the Democrats and the media for talking BS about trump Iran has been bringing this on their selfs just let him do his job protect the Americans because the Democrats don’t care about Americans they want open borders can you imagine the people who hate America

  8. What do these bimbos know about geopolitics?
    Yes americans will be much safer after this stupid action..
    US just killed the man who destroyed ISIS khalifate, he did more then anyone on this planet when it comes to destroying ISIS!

  9. Uh the white chick the glasses, the president doesn't have to tell you anything that can compromise a mission, sorry I understand you think you deserve to know everything you don't.

  10. Ilhan Omar has inferioty complex and don't have a clue where she is standing or where she is intending to go. Children from a tumultuos background indifferent to good sense and faithfulness but rather wail and gnashes teeth. Rotten scoundrels and liberal media CNN MSNBC NBC mob liars fake news.

  11. There's no proof Iran attack the oil Tankers or the us ambassy what we know for sûre is that's Sadaam Husain didnt have no Weapons of mass destruction ,wich create this all middleastern mess.Iran as influence on His own région what are they suppose to be? A none influencial country to the benefit of whom

  12. Conservatives be like: 🤪 we need to spend trillions on the military, creating wars with no defying end, that only benefit a few Americans… some one with a brain says: 🤔how about healthcare and education for all Americans, that benefits all Americans. Trump supporters be like: 🤪how are you going to pay for it

  13. When this hits home these same people defending his decision will have to look deeper and question the decision. It hasn't hit home yet and they go on with their luxurious lives for now. It's easy to talk this way when you haven't seen war and how horrible it actually is.

  14. You poor sods. You can't give credit for anything. This the best President you will ever experience. Wake up to yourselves. He did it for you and you and you and everyone else in America and everywhere else.

  15. This is why I hate partisan politics. Liberals who worship the national defense infrastructure all year long are skeptical now and guys and gals at the table who criticize the defense establishment all year long are taking the input they provide now as gospel. I'm sure that Greg, who is an anti-war critical thinker would have a sound opinion on this!

  16. Reckless, irresponsible, arrogant and desperate l what happened to including congress? What happened to diplomacy ? Where's the deal maker? Where's the evidence to back up his claims? We have been poking these people to incite a conflict. The Iranians had not reacted and showed a great deal of restraint and because of that Trump had to ratchet up the nonsense. Is this some grand plan to justify ridding our country of millions of people that live here of middle eastern descent! You know cuz they of course as Trump believes are once again brown. The fact that Americans have died because of the actions of this military leader is the weakest of all justifications considering those deaths took place on Iranian soil meaning we brought a fight to them not the other way around! Trump oil hunting again? Helping Putin achieve an alliance with the Iranians against the United States! So Putin has made efforts to weaken our unity, confuse and distract us and now he is forming a multilateral international force to eventually attack us? This all has a bad bad smell!

  17. Trump is real man , he love American people , he did GREAT decision , he make America great . Greatest American President , if all American Presidents did same job . American will be very strong power . many American person dead , they did not say nothing. do THESE people love American person ? Trump lead America going to new Era and create new history

  18. Please bring our soldiers home from: Iraq, Syria and Afgan. before we are suckered into a war with Iran. The wars in Middle East are tribal and are ongoing for thousand of years. F the Middle East.

  19. Pelosi and her bunch has got to go . That's a more severe threat than Iran ! Why are we letting Omar have a say on anything ? Obama and Cary are a real threat still to the United States . Come on people grow up and realize what in the f%^$ is going on !

  20. 3:39 "this is the most consequential decsision an American official has taken in the middle East since 2003"

    Obama and Clinton, "hold my nuke button while collapse the entire nation of Libya"

  21. Ilhan Omar the traitor is siding with the enemy. It upsets me. My hard earnd money (tax money) is going to her pocket to feed her and people like her.

  22. USA has had to do this trewout history. That's the reason all of you have the write to run your mouth even though none of you know what the hell you're talking about

  23. I wonder if they realize we're technically been at war with north Korea since the fifties never officially ended

  24. Why wouldn't we believe intelligence about a major threat… Have you forgot about the weapons of mass destruction? Things go great for the heroes that defeated Isis. First Trump lets Turkey to start killing the Kurds and then drops a drone on a leader of the Iranese armforce.

  25. Who’s the blonde? Juan’s substitute? Liberals all think the same! There’s just something Innately wrong with their brains!!!!

  26. Congress be like: "He didn't get our permission!"….. these are the same child-diddling bastards who tried to impeach the president illegally, and who are constantly leaking intel and giving their proxy bad-guys warnings about incoming military strikes.

  27. Using the word' 'consequential' does not make you consequential. And wearing horn-rimmed glasses doesn''t make you look intelligent. I'm talking about you, blondie.

  28. Trump just killed the Obama of the Middle East, he has helped the US fight against ISIS the dudes a hero over there this is beyond fcked up for Trump and our Country… Zionists will now attack America and Blame Iran for it and Israel get's the War they've planned for years. America will end up like Germany did in WW2. GTFO if you can…

  29. Its unbelievable to me that if soleimani would of killed anyone that these far left people (were close to) they would be praising this decision. That is why it will forever be the correct decision, Because….. AMERICANS! must protect AMERICANS! From foriegn and domestic threats even if they are close to you or not.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👌

  30. Trump is fooling himself by saying "We took action to stop a war". Does he care much for American lives? Seems he cares more about the impeachment and is trying to do something to stop it.

  31. Russia and China are already training with Iran to give the Zionist's their End Times Fantasy Show. This isn't about money or resources it's about Israel and Zionism controlling the World.

  32. Imagine if Iran knew we all backed our President. They would really get the message. However they will play on our fake news media and liberal dems to keep the election pressure on. They are patient. The Iranians perfect scenario is to get a weak President such as a Warren or Sanders 🤦🏼‍♂️

  33. These comments by the media and the Democrats prove we should never elect a Democrat for president again. I am not a hardcore Trump supporter at all, I can look at him and conclude “A flawed” man, I can also say the guy made a good decision

  34. GO. TRUMP !!!! BEHIND YOU 100% PRESIDENT ! WE NEVER GOT MORE INFORMATION FROM OTHER PRESIDENTS, WHEN THEY REACTED ! GOD ! PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID NOW ! STUPID PILL TAKEN BY ALL OF THEM ! THE IRANIAN CITIZENS ARE HAPPY THE EVIL BASTARD WAS TAKEN OUT ! LISTEN TO THEM !!! NOT THE IDIOT'S RUNNING AROUND IN THE U.S. HAVING A FIT OVER , THINGS THEY ARE JUST ASSUMING OR CRAP THEY ARE MAKING UP !

  35. Congressional authorization. By the time that happens all the US citizens are already Benghazied. Discussing in congress would also tell Iran the plan. Are these people really this stupid?

  36. Let's be frank – Iran is in deep do do.But I'm curious – how long was this character moving around Iraq unchecked organizing Shiite militias? Aren't there U.S. troops there?

  37. Democrats are really upset that President Trump didn't ASK THEM FOR PERMISSION before he took action to protect America. Guess what Wackos. HE DOES NOT NEED YOUR PERMISSION!!! I know, shocking isn't it??? Another shock, You are not in control anymore. In fact you all are fast becoming irrelevant in the big scheme of things!!

  38. Just imagine if Iran did this to some of US generals on our territory? How would you call this action? I know that president is basically a puppet. He must listen to the military industrial people, they dictate who and how and when. This president is doing the same thing as other presidents did before. Bow to these assholes.

  39. "Every American is a target now"….. sounds like a good reason to let everyone have a CCW! Make sure everyone is ready for a possible attack, being as the cops are unable to be everywhere at once.

  40. Because trump pulled out the treaty when our allies and intelligence agencies said they was doing what the treaty said. He removed and didn't replace like he said he would do. Treaties and trade wars are not easy as he thought it would be.

  41. I will be able to sleep tonight ,because I am safe and live in America , How about the draft thing ,pretty wild,looks like the liberal free ride is about over , this is kinda War Lite , Wars bring people together ,maybe the country needs a wake up call.

  42. So where's the guarantee that Iran still won't go ahead with their plot even if their commander is dead? And Trump believes the US Intelligence NOW ?

  43. Head line
    Nancy said got him abuse of power
    I was counting the money last night
    For our Dem. frinds in iran Dont fuc$ WITH ME IM PRAYING FOR MY FRIENDS IN IRAN

  44. Today the President of the United States said he is willing to target civilians, cultural sites, and places dear to a society in order to inflict TERROR.

    There’s a word for people who do this.

  45. This five fools are supporting because they think USA is the strongest army in the world… so was Britain and they eventually falled… this could lead to falling of USA and I wonder what they will say if that happens

  46. He was a military general who ordered the deaths of his own people, orchestrated attacks on our people and would’ve woke up the next day and carried out more deaths. Now he’s dead and that’s not terrible.

  47. I don't really care who the president is. I disagree with how it was taken out. Idc if he did it to sway heads from the impeachment, or did it for the reasons he said. It doesnt matter.

  48. when any leader gives a public "red line" statement and fails to act when it is crossed, that leader fails both to be a leader or a negotiator, a lamentable laughing stock. Now that the fundamentalist leader has been publicly executed, his underlings will inn fight and squabble over the seat of power. They may even become more internally focused as a necessity. Should the black guard troops barracks all be MOAB`d,
    what would be available to enforce religious rule ?
    Would this cause the fall of the mullahs ?
    Are they not technically a minority rule tyrannical institution ?
    Do we continue with a failed policy of appeasement while expecting a different outcome? which meets the dictionary term of insanity.
    Or reset the system with a different set of rules and probable outcomes?
    as the big D stated, he is "president of the USA and answerable to the US electorate" and he is duty bound to protect as he sees fit once he has taken the relevant departmental advice. Whether the white noise snow flakes like it or not, he did exactly that. like all first term presidents, he has inherited an untenable situation. Sadly sticking cash on a plane as a bribe doesn't work as according to congressional hearings, Obama did.
    So take out the protagonists and let the system re-boot out of necessity.
    when you put the guard dog down, the master puts his tail between his legs as he knows he could be next.

  49. I'm very tired of the cackling hens on the various news shows…. and yes these are just shows for the feeble minded to watch – owned by the Cabal.
    And these anchor or similar talk show women who are obviously briefed to speak about the chosen brainwashing of the day….Example – that Trump should allow these feeble minded women in White on the Hill to get wind if a critical attack such as this……. Trust me when I say that the West and the middle east are entering into a financial and physical theater of events that are far beyond the emotional minds of these Women in White on the Hill who should never be privy to these kinds of analyses nor missions.

    Remove The Squad, and the rest of the Women in White on the Hill.

    Vote and replace all Democrat Politicians in 2020. They have been forcing our borders open – and burning our 2nd Amendment, and killing our children in order to convince us to give up our most needed tyranny preventing normal capacity rifles !!!!

    A quote by Cicero in the year (43 B.C) while he was addressing the Roman Senate:

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot

    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,

    for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves

    amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling

    through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar

    to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he

    appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He

    rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night

    to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so

    that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared."
