WATCH: Ilhan Omar LAUGHS At American Troops Being Killed
The American soldiers who fought in the Iraq war were inspired by the desire to defend their country after the events of September 11th, 2001. Now, there were good things that came out of the conflict and bad things. We all know that the pretense was wrong, and that Iraq had little to do with the attacks on the World Trade Center buildings. But, the people of Iraq rejoiced when Saddam Hussein’s son Uday was killed as a result of the invasion.
Uday was so evil and so feared that even his own father would not hand him state power. He brutalized the citizens of his country. He enslaved a man who looked like him for use as a decoy — forced him into cosmetic surgery and kept him away from his family under the threat that he would kill them all. Uday kept sex slaves, killed at will, fired his personal sidearms into crowds on a whim, and tortured and killed any government employee who defied him while performing their duties.
The Americans who died in that war are not the ones who lied about the pretense. They were well-meaning American citizens who wanted to protect their peace-loving neighbors. They were imperfect, yet brave human beings who were doing their best to follow their convictions.
But if you ask Rep. Ilhan Omar, people like Uday Hussein were probably just ‘some people doing something.’ Recently, during an event where Iraq veteran casualties were commemorated, Omar laughs conspicuously.
