The Iraqi Consulate in Detroit, Michigan will reportedly be hosting a two-day memorial event for dead Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, according to its Facebook page Sunday.
“The Consulate General of the Republic of Iraq in Detroit announces the opening of a register of condolences to the lives of the martyrs who have fallen as a result of the recent American raids in Iraq,” the post reads, adding that the event will take place Jan. 7-8.
The Facebook post received backlash in its comments section.
The Iraqi Consulate in Detroit’s announcement comes after Soleimani was killed on Jan. 2 during airstrikes authorized by President Donald Trump. Soleimani was “actively developing plans” to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq, according to the Pentagon. More
Why don’t these people leave the US and go to Iran. These people don’t belong in our country.

Yes, the enemy that hates America is already here and living among us.
People wonder why trump got elected. You mourn someone that is evil you, in turn, are just as evil.

Since apparently no one will stop this travesty, how about a ring of protesters around the embassy perimeter, each carrying a sign with a photo of a soldier killed or wounded by this awful monster.
