Of course some of it is because they hate Trump. Do you admit that some only support this because they support Trump?
Of course

So if a D president took this same action many here would not support it?  :)
correct. They would suddenly be worried about repercussions.

You mean how I could predict 99% of the members response here? Or how I could predict 99% of the members response to pardoning someone? Probably all lucky guesses on my part. You want 5, 10 or more examples?

Are you referring to how they have been right 99% of the time? Trump won the election, economy is doing great, and all the bad things never happened. And we ain’t tired of winning just yet.

Here’s a formula I concocted to save you time, you can repost as necessary:
MSM anti-trump reaction (1-10 scale) - 1 level = CV unbiased opinion.

Of course
You have the nutcases on both sides that you need to exclude. That leaves a few R's/D's and mostly I's that can be objective. I will bet they are pretty much split. So when you see most here support this decision wouldn't it fair to say they are not being objective?

If you want to put your money where your mouth is instead of just shooting it off just let me know. Like every other time we get into this you will fold like a cheap suit.

I agree that most posts I have seen on this topic have not been objective. As I said probably partially because of the other sides knee jerk reaction, people begun to close their eyes and ears to the other side. Likely so is because of support for DJT as aygart said, but even if so, I believe that in different times, people who are (in all likelihood), usually intellectually honest, would be so here as well.

That must be why anyone can predict just about every opinion of yours.
You are so naďve you don't even know if I am a D/R/I.

Soleimani has been at the top of the global most wanted terrorist list for a quarter of a century. I don't care which President took him out, the world is better off without him. I was not a big fan of President Obama's, but he did manage to have Bin Laden killed - props to him for that.

Regardless of which American president took them out, there are always repercussions. There is always a chance that it sparks a new wave of retaliation or escalation.

No one is disagreeing that he was a terrorist and deserved to be taken out. What about the leader of Iran that gave him his orders? Should we take him out since basically he is the top terrorist?

It a black and white world you just take them out but it doesn't work that way. You need to weight the consequences. This is where the disagreement comes in.

Unfortunately Trump just wants to spin this for his political gain: Trump struck a harshly partisan tone Monday that foreshadowed the political battles to come. Calling into Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio show, the president maligned Democrats for “trying to make” Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani “sound like he was this wonderful human being” and argued that “elements of that party [are] openly supporting Iran, an enemy of the United States.”

In general, I don't see how anyone thinks they have enough information to know whether or not this makes sense. There are so many questions here.

Was this a grabbed opportunity?
Was this because of a specific threat?
Did his influence in the region make him a valuable target?
How does this affect Iran's influence in Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza?
What was his role in Iran's internal politics?
and more.

We don't have enough information and that is the reason so many are split on this. If you can't even understand both positions on it that just compounds the problem.

Anyone who can't understand a differing opinion that their own always compounds the problem. It is usually because they don't really understand their own opinion either.
Having any opinion at all with the amount of questions is simply ludicrous. This should not result in a split but rather in people being undecided.
