In a time when the country is consumed by election news, left-wing riots, and the continuing effects of the coronavirus pandemic, it is easy to forget that there are so many other important things happening in the world around us. On Friday, President Trump awarded Sgt. Major Thomas Payne with the Medal of Honor for his role in a daring mission to successfully rescue 75 hostages from ISIS.

Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, is the architect of Iran's war on the West and Israel, including through Lebanon's Hezbollah terrorist group. There was an airstrike on a convoy of vehicles at Baghdad airport, and reportedly Soleimani was killed along with the leader of the Iraqi militia aligned with Iran.

I know the news tends to be slow at the end of the year, but this is ridiculous. CNN reported that troops may have violated Department of Defense guidelines when they asked President Donald Trump to sign their Make America Great Again hats. Or maybe the troops just wanted to get their commander-in-chief's autograph and who knows when they'd have another opportunity to get it?
