Ilhan Omar claims she has “PTSD” from Trump’s attack on Soleimani. Of course this makes sense. After all this is the same woman who claims it is wrong to place sanctions on Iran, but perfectly ok to place them on Israel.
For Ilhan Omar and her friends on the far left of the Democratic Party, down is up and up is down. Omar gets “PTSD” not because it reminds her of her refugee experience in Sudan (which some have questioned the accuracy), but rather because she identifies more with Iran than she does with the USA.
While Soleimani was responsible for the murder of thousands, these thousands are merely numbers in the mind of Omar. Soleimani for her is a hero. A glorified martyr against the colonial West. After all she and her friends see the USA as main problem in the Middle East, not Iran whose Soleimani spearheaded the subjugation of indigenous people across the region.
The irony of Ilhan Omar feeing “PTSD” from Trump’s take down of Qassem Soleimani is that there are many thousands in Iran who are now thanking the President for doing what he did.
