  1. All people making negative comments about America, they are making those comments from the comfort of their homes in one of the 50 states and commonwealth. And they are free to do so and we fight to keep them free.

  2. This man is literally taking a page from g w bush’s playbook from the Iraq war!!! Who ever believes this b.s is complicit in terrorism and the killing of innocent people here in the states and overseas

  3. So after Iran an Iraq it's China,no wonder people hate USA, talking about human rights,go look in your american back yard

  4. I'm sick of that look of 'Duper's Delight' on Pompeo's face. He thinks it's funny that he is lying to people, and he believes he's putting one over on us.

  5. I was puzzled by many of the comments here. Soleimani knew he was declared a terrorist by Iraq but, gambled with his life, that someone wouldn't do something.

  6. And I thought only MSNBC was a group of hacks looking for anything to blame the president for. The one guest asked the question…..did taking out Suleimani stop any future attacks? That's like asking liberal media if they plan on trashing Trump if he's not re-elected. You know the media will at some point . So did taking out Suleimani stop the #2 terrorist on the planet from planning any future attacks. Why yes it did. Now what happens next no one knows that story.

  7. Someone come together and move clowns out of the white . they mean the country no good.what pair of the world their home are. I know it can't be america

  8. 13:39, You are confident, but you don't know, because there are too many knowns and unknowns and none of the knowns explain the reasons for the unknowns.. . 😕 😟

  9. USA wants war in the MiddleEast and is trying everything to provoke Iran into conflict, even letting US soldiers stay in Iraq as sitting ducks .

  10. The most unqualified misleading uninformed vile excuse for a secretary of state in history.
    Trump hires only the best.
    Pompeo is a big fat oaf.

  11. Says the country built on slavery with Indians on reservations going through genocide and children in cages on their boarders.

    Blame your enemies for what you do and say opposite of your plans. "Make America great."

  12. Trump and his fellow dinosaurs are clearly off their Rockers so let's make sure we put them in their Rockers in the next election.

  13. What a stink in liar this guy is, it turns out Trump lied to us , to get elected. Just another liar , lied , lied .lied. Talking about deep state, pompeio is as deep state as it gets.

  14. deep state? This guy is as deep state as it gets. People meet hard core deep state mike pompeio. Turns out trump is the deep state and the swamp. We got bumboozled.

  15. Now he takes on chines to lecture. We are lucky , planetarely lucky to have such good teachers , who want us to beehive properly and in accordance with their ……

  16. Pompeo is a most indecent man. Unfortunately he became the high officer in USA and has the chance to mass up the world

  17. Pompous Pompeo sez: "We took a bad guy off the battlefield."
    "Battlefield?" So he's saying we are officially at war with Iran?

  18. Those leftist traitors will always try to use whatever you say or do against you, no matter what. We must do the same.

  19. Iran was perfect and free before the coup. Their new Rulers took over and despised the way they was living because it resembled America. They have brain washed their citizens to hate us since then. / Let's ask that General if he cared about laws…. who has killed Americans without thinking twice about it. Lets ask those peoples family of the dead because of this General, if United States had every right to do what they did!? Americans have become so soft!

  20. God bless you Mr Pompeo-youre doing great and we appreciate you, we appreciate everything you've done to keep us safe.

  21. I would imagine POTUS 45 is more aware of what is going on than most of us –> wouldn't you? Presumptuous journalists and their bosses likely know diddly by comparison and yet they squeal the Loudest~!

  22. 'We are making the hemisphere a hemisphere, that is the best."
    ~Mike Pompeo
    Secretary of State?
    This guy is NOT the guy you want to be taking care of easing tensions with IRAN
    It offers no comfort.
    North Korea asked that the US government not send Pompeo to meetings for the ongoing negotiations between US & NK (at the time).
    They said he was childish, unprofessional, and accused Pompeo of not taking the negotiations seriously. Disrespectful. Immature. Rude.
    The guy doesn't have an inkling about diplomatic behaviour. He is a pompous hothead and is now officially part of the Trump* disinformation strategy domestically.
    Not reassuring.

  23. and were so abused… and were so confused… its easy to beleive that someones gonna light the fuse-all that you fear, but theyre tellin u cant happen here (rainbow) HOLDS TRUE 35 YEARS LATER

  24. There is no doubt that now this so called "general's is gone more american and uk and EU lives will be safe. They need to get out of that country abs go home. Iran has never been safe or US or UK .and that's just a fact .

Mikey does not care about humanity, We lie We cheat We steal. Dishonest Christian repent you sins!

  26. Excellent speech by Pompeo, biased journalists and leftist/islamist comments below. The world is a safer place now. MAGA2020. And as to the the media concern for "sites", there has been a well-documented destruction of pre-islamic sites all over the ME and Iran, as they are considered religiously "impure". Where was the media concern about this?

  27. Our country is in the hands of a Madman and his power hungry sycophants. We have created our own reality show and how appropriate for the society we've created..

  28. No Christina faith is not only for Sunday School .True Faith is from the time you wakeup and the time you go too bed!(Everyday)IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AMEN 👏🏾👏🏾😊

  29. Dude u killed him at a public place. One of the most public places in that country. That was a statement. And it wasnt a damn airstrike. The debris and aftermath looks like a ied or a car bomb inside the suv.

  30. Pompous self inflating Punk,got some skunk fog-odorous,malclouded,misanthrope,..dope on a rope- quality,slippery.

    just when we thought the evil anti-America democrats couldn't sink any lower, they amaze us again.

  32. you better save the children from the pedophile in the monastery where you send the kids supposedly to school and eat babies, you know it, we know it today, everything is known, but politics is like that for the public's sake, let's keep order in someone else's house.

  33. China should be destroyed in the South China sea. They will never get Taiwan. You'll have to fight the US for it and will lose dearly.

  34. This fat evil man has sen the young people to fight his war.
    I found this on AsiaTimes and thought it might interest you: https://www.asiatimes.com/2020/01/article/financial-n-option-will-settle-trumps-oil-war/
    Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani had flown into Baghdad on a normal carrier flight, carrying a diplomatic passport. He had been sent by Tehran to deliver, in person, a reply to a message from Riyadh on de-escalation across the Middle East. Those negotiations had been requested by the Trump administration.
    So Baghdad was officially mediating between Tehran and Riyadh, at the behest of Trump. And Soleimani was a messenger. Adil Abdul-Mahdi was supposed to meet Soleimani at 8:30 am, Baghdad time, last Friday. But a few hours before the appointed time, Soleimani died as the object of a targeted assassination at Baghdad airport.
    Let that sink in – for the annals of 21st century diplomacy.

  35. Iran should fire some missiles towards America n let Mr.Trump press that red button n make Iran disappear permanently lmao

  36. Do we Live in America or Some other place ? You people _ What's wrong now…. CBS use to be dependable and cared about American Lives over A bunch of Terrorists , no matter what – That's a Fact – Terrorist

  37. Our so-called leaders (both government & business) care nothing for us, the people. They care NOTHING about our planet. They care about oil & wealth & power & profits & their pathetic egos. We, the people of EVERY country, deserve better than this. We deserve peace, across the world. And we shall have it. Rise up, people. Rise up!

  38. what is it that makes Iran "must have " nuclear weapons systems…..Will Iran get wiped off the face of the earth……Will 30-50 million Iranians population just vanish……Will Iranian culture/relegion all of a sudden change into "western" culture…..why Iran and Pakistan not just say we will not have any nuclear weapons or missiles..after all it is not the "nuclear material" that the people of these countries eat daily for breakfast…..why Iran -Pakistan must boast and beat their chests for having Nuclear loaded Missiles..after all Ukraine/Kashakistan/Belarous dismantled their Soviet Era nuclear warheads and returned all such armaments back to Russia….they are still the same countries and their people living the same way of life as before

  39. The adults walked in and all of Trump's tantrum buddies had to stop. They say " don't you touch my little buddy Iran again..!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg5jNwCJ0FM&t=14s

  40. Why did Pompeo recently renew “The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012,” which completely lifted the long-existing ban on the domestic dissemination of U.S. government-produced propaganda, almost all being Anti Trump rhetoric? The funding had run out and it was winding down and all of a sudden Pompeo injects millions of dollars to keep the Anti Trump agenda going at full speed?

  41. The president has surrounded himself with bad people like pompeo Bolton and Kushner he should have hired douglas McGregor

  42. As a public, we need to start reading more about our middle east conflicts so that we can become more immune to this sort of propaganda beyond a gut-level idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeQ_dx452WM

    Recent brief discussion of obvious lies used to create after-the-fact justification for strike killing Soleimani and Iraqi military leader in drone strike:

    Better discussion (if outraged), long and intros a lot of good topics to read more about–including the last decade of fight against Salafist extremists:
