Jack Bergman Issues Statement on Iranian Strike on Al Asad Airbase in Iraq
For folks who simply hate our president too much to pay attention to the facts, understand one thing:
Soleimani was a bad guy and has been undermining our efforts to conclude our business in Iraq and get the hell out of there. For a little perspective, its good to have people who have been in the business of #WAR offer their thoughts.
Michigan’s congressman General Jack Bergman issued the following statement last evening:
Tonight we pray for safety for our Service members and allies fighting to destroy terrorism across the globe.
I’ve flown in and out of Al Asad Airbase in Iraq many times as a Marine and have witnessed the important work done by our troops there. This oppressive Iranian regime has always been an aggressor and bully in the region, and as we see yet again tonight, they’re continuing down the path of evil escalation. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder with the good people of Iran who seek freedom and do not support this terrorist regime.
Let’s be clear: The United States eliminated a terrorist when we killed Soleimani – the Iranian government must take note and end its aggressive actions immediately. Our troops stand ready and in position to counter any attack on our positions and our allies.
Thank you General.
