The accolades heaped on the memories of Iranian Gen. Soleimani and Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis by our press is reminiscent of Cher eulogizing the late Sonny Bono, whom she divorced (“Democrats, media face backlash for slamming Trump instead of Soleimani,” Web, Jan. 6). But then, our press eulogized the murderous Fidel Casto of Cuba and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, too. Don’t forget how Osama bin Laden was the saint of our press at one time. And then there were the Hollywood “friends in high places” who adored Harvey Weinstein, and the Clintons, who bonded with Jeffrey Epstein.

Right now the issue is that Iran is on a path to start World War III by nuking Israel. Whether you like Israel or not, no one is going to benefit from a total, all-out nuclear war. And that is exactly what will happen if Iraq is allowed to fulfill its promise to annihilate Israel.
