Tonight, after the death of Quds leader Qassem Soleimani in a US airstrike in Iraq earlier this week, Iran launched missile or rocket strikes against one or more US targets in that country (full details are yet to be known). But there’s also other news happening in Iran, and NBC News made sure anybody who wanted to had a chance to see it:
Watch live coverage as Gen. Qassem Soleimani is buried in his hometown of Kerman, Iran. https://t.co/CUsh8osifL

If Soleimani had been taken out during the previous administration the media would have been leading a parade in honor of Obama, but Trump is in office, so the spin is much different.

He was responsible for killing more than 600 Americans. The last one was a man named Nawres Waleed Hamid, who worked for the military and was buried last Saturday in Sacramento.

The media's fascination with martyring this guy is something. https://t.co/LPfAtp3MvU

Would much rather watch videos of Syrians celebrating the death of the man responsible for murdering their families. A much better use of my time. https://t.co/2h9v5kW8Z2

It’s mourning in MSM America, apparently.
