Experts Praise Trump: Killing Soleimani “Bigger Than Taking Out Osama Bin Laden”

Early Friday morning, President Donald Trump ordered airstrikes in Baghdad and the U.S. military eliminated some of Iraq’s top-ranking officials.

Qassem Soleimani, the most significant person of Iraq’s military and in the Islamic Republic, was among those killed.

And experts are saying that the decisive airstrike by Trump is even “bigger than taking out Osama Bin Laden.”

“It is now confirmed: the US has killed Qassem Soleimani. Make no mistake – this is bigger than taking out Osama Bin Laden,” Brookings Institute expert Ranj Alaaldin said on on Twitter.

Other foreign policy experts agreed with him.

Washington Institute fellow Bilal Wahab added to the Twitter thread, saying, “Killing Qasem Solaimani for {Trump] is bigger and more consequential than that of Baghdadi.”

Phillip Smyth, an expert on Iran-controlled Shia militias and the Middle East, went into greater detail about how significant this airstrike was.

“This is a major blow,” Smyth said. “I would argue that this is probably the most major decapitation strike the United States has ever carried out. … This is a man who controlled a transnational foreign legion that was controlling governments in numerous different countries.”

According to Breitbart, Smyth claimed that Soleimani had a cult of personality and held great power in the Shia militia network.

“He had a hell of a lot of power and a hell of a lot of control,” he said. “You have to be a strong leader in order to get these people to work with you, know how and when to play them off one another, and also know which Iranians do I need within the IRGC-QF, which Lebanese do I need, which Iraqis do I need … that’s not something you can just pick up at a local five and dime. It takes decades of experience.”
