Republican Arkansas senator Tom Cotton praised Donald Trump’s military strike that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and called him a “sadistic brain” who planned an attack on the US.
Cotton, a member of the Senate Service of the Army and Veteran from Iraq and Afghanistan, said he saw first-hand information that proved that Soleimani was mapping “something big and very dangerous” in the future.
“There is no doubt. I have seen the intelligence that he was planning something big, very dangerous, whether it was within a few weeks or a few days, “Cotton said in a Sunday interview on Fox’s Life, freedom and Levin.

Cotton then slammed Democrats shut for objecting to Trump’s attack on the 62-year-old general.
“Whether an attack is imminent or not, I have to say it will look very different if you are a more solid person in Iraq or a senator who is behind armed guards in Washington DC,” he said.
“So I have been very disappointed in all my Democratic colleagues in the Senate in recent weeks … because if you get the chance to take a brain like Qassem Soleimani off the battlefield, you take it and I recommend the president so . We should have done it a long time ago, “he added.
Cotton described Soleimani’s hand in the Middle East and said he inflicted suffering in every country in the region.
“You said in Syria, he is largely responsible for the fact that Bashar al-Assad is still in power and killing hundreds and thousands of Syrians. Only at the end of last year more than a thousand Iranians were murdered by their own security forces while protesting against their government, Qassem Soleimani was also responsible for that, “he said.

The US killed General Soleimani in a drone attack on January 3, 2020 after he landed in Baghdad.
The attack led to a week of escalating military action between the US and Iran.
Soleimani was known as a 62-year-old high-flying general and leader of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps who was behind proxy wars in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen.
He was one of the most ruthless commanders in the region who worked in the shadows for years, but came into the spotlight after the Arab Spring and the war with the Islamic state. He is seen as the brain behind Iran’s struggle for regional dominance.
