While Democrats express outrage over President Donald Trump’s decision to order the airstrike that killed Qassem Soleimani without congressional approval, many Iranians are celebrating the death of the Islamic country’s chief terrorism architect.
Since Soleimani’s surprise death late Thursday, numerous images have surfaced on social media showing that much of the Iranian public approves of Soleimani’s death.
While the Iranian regime has called for three days of mourning, some Iranians are calling for three days of celebrations, according to national security expert David Reaboi. In fact, many Iranians even baked cakes and other desserts marking the incident, some of which directly thank Trump for his action.

However, Iranians were not the only people celebrating Soleimani’s death. According to TheBlaze Iraqis were also thrilled by the news.
That is because Soleimani, who was directly responsible for untold violence and countless deaths across the Middle East, has directly intervened in Iraqi affairs. Most recently, Soleimani advised Iraqi leaders how to deal with anti-government protesters, the Associated Press reported.
From the AP:
“We in Iran know how to deal with protests,” Soleimani told the Iraqi officials, according to two senior officials familiar with the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the secret gathering. “This happened in Iran and we got it under control.”
The day after Soleimani’s visit, the clashes between the protesters and security forces in Iraq became far more violent, with the death toll soaring past 100 as unidentified snipers shot demonstrators in the head and chest. Nearly 150 protesters were killed in less than a week.
On Thursday, Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted a video showing Iraqi citizens celebrating:

Contrast the celebrations of civilians with the Iranian parliament shouting “Death to America”.

Notice that there are no women in parliament. However, notice that most of the “mourners” are women wearing full hajib. Speculation is they were forced to attend.
Have you noticed the pictures of the protestors in Iran vs pictures of those celebrating? Look at this one posted by ABC, and note the makeup of the crowd (mostly all female) and the full hijab attire: https://t.co/paSGmE8s60

And while many celebrate the death of a terrorist, now the Irainian government has supposedly there is a bounty on the head of President Trump:
OMG! Iran's regime just announced an $80 million bounty for anyone who brings the head of @realDonaldTrump for killing Soleimani.
PS: Iran's ppl however are overjoyed at Soleimani's death. As the #IranProtests have shown, they long for an end to the mullahs' tyranny #FreeIran2020 pic.twitter.com/uB3zOG5EKA

So the Iranian government is worried about loss of power, while the civilians are celebrating the death of a very evil man.
