We should definitely take out anybody who is killing Americans no matter what the speculation is, as to what their supporters might do.0
It’s a good move unless you believe Iran is a force for good in the Middle East. I’m not sure how anyone could make that argument unless you are an Iranian expansionist.
There will be no war because as much as the us doesn’t want one Iran wants it even less because regardless how it actually ends it’ll feature the Iranian Mullahs and military blown into tiny little pieces in short order0
What Girls & Guys Said
The first move in any war or preventing a war is to destroy infrastructure. If a military cannot communicate, coordinate, or move, then they are no longer a unified force, but an insurgency. Those have a strong likelihood of attacking us, but a much stronger likelihood of attacking their allies, and their own citizens to make an invasion, or negate the need for one much easier.
It also might make a country more angry at us, while at the same time reducing their confidence in their military's ability to protect them.
Honestly, I don't see Iran as a good target to go to war with. Bolstering the hell out of the kurds, expanding their territory, and letting Iran sort out some of the chaos in their back yard seems like it would be good policy.
Really, how long are we going to stay in the sandbox? Fresh recruits for over a year now were born after 9/11.0
He should have been assassinated years ago, as he’s one of the main people (along with the ayatollah) funding and supporting terrorist scum, such as Hezbollah, Hamas, the Syrian regime and their scummy militias in Iraq.
Regarding escalation, I don’t expect much. Perhaps they’ll launch some Shababs towards Israel, but if that is the price to pay for Soleimani’s death, I’d more than gladly agree to that.
Sure, it may lead to some bombings. But you cannot endlessly appease with a rogue nation like Iran, that is a prime threat in the region to all allies of the US.40
Iran is a peacful country and they followed the nuclear deal until the U. S. broke it. I don't see why the U. S. thinks they have the right to just invade other countries or kill people. The media just sells war constantly and makes people think there was some sort of justification for this when there was none.
He was directly and nderectly responsible for killing millions of people? Killing who? I know who is responsible for killing millions of people every U. S. president. So can I do an airstrike on them? Would that be cool with you? Would you think that's an ok justification? Or would you see it as an act of war?
The way the U. S. justifies their own actions is such a joke because they would never accept their own logic from someone else. This is why I'm kind of looking forward to when the U. S. is no longer the biggest power in the world. It will be fun to watch.11
I hope it doesn't escalate to a larger war/open conflict. But these type of things probably happen every day without the public being told, the only reason we know about this is because their is an election coming up and this is perfect media material, because media outlets can spin it in any direction they want.0
Who am I to say? It was still a loss of life 🤷♂️. I’ve learned one thing through my life and habitual following of many different media groups. Politicians NEVER EVER do anything because it’s the moral thing to do. They are only interested in their own interest and it will likely take years for you to hear about it. It’s a giant chess game for them. There is no Superman or savior in the political world.41
It was a terrorist move by the U. S. on behalf of Israhell. The U. S. just made the world a less safe place.
I suppose it's now fair game to car bomb Petraeus, Mattis or anyone else. Why even pretend to believe in international law, let alone sanity?12
Iran said there was nothing we can do about attacking the US Embassy. Yes, there is. And much more. They are not a superpower, just mouthy little clerics who are going to get their military, cities and government destroyed.0
It's not good if you want lower gasoline prices. I guess this is what happens when Trump has Yes Men around him in the White House. Is that good or bad? Well, Obama wouldn't have done this. I bet you the biggest majority of Americans (Not me I knew) didn't even know who this guy was until he was killed and now they're saying oh yeah man he deserved it. I don't know maybe. Was he involved in trying to get those people killed in the American Embassy in Iraq? If yes, then I think he deserved it.10
Lemme ask a question why do u call him terrorist or war criminal?
Everyone knows he fought with terrorists (ISIS) and anyone who helped them.
Did u know that?
I hope u research after responding🙂20
This was a bigger scalp than than Bin Laden and Al Bhagdadi put together. Most people don't seem to realize that.0
Neutral move. It's like the Syria bombing. No one's gonna care. Iran knows Russia doesn't want a war with the US and neither does China so they won't help if they decide to attack. They'll end up a parking lot if they're dumb enough to try something without help. Times are different than WWI and WWII. Before communication between nations wasn't as easy and there wasn't a nation with as much military, cultural, and economic influence as the US10
I wish we would get out of the middle east. Seems like we do more harm than good.0
Uuh, just worried this turning into a big conflict... I'm not gonna be here to argue but this will probably have some type of fallout and who's gonna pay for it...11
Yes if it is true that there were plans to get the US. They have already killed many many US citizens already so they would do it in a heart beat.5
Good move. I disagree with Trump about a lot of stuff, but military policy isn't one of them.42
I don't understand this kind of stuff. So I don't know0
Good move as in saved potential lives and prevented another failed leadership controversy. Bad move in the sense that tensions will escalate. But then again this war with Iran has been in the books since we first started tampering with Iran and her neighboring states Iraq and Afghanistan10
More areas of oil were discovered before this move was initiated. Russia as well as another foreign country allied with Iran before this move was made.0
Iran has no power thst america hasn't given them. Now they want to threaten us and attack Israel again and again? Iran needs to be shown who they are, and thats nothing without us.10
Good move. He had a lot of blood on his hands.43

It's a great idea… if the intent is to so alienate the idea Iraqi people into demanding U. S.-troops be purged from Iraqi soil.
Remember: Iran & Iraq are next-door neighbors:
And it's natural for neighboring nations to coordinate with each other to fight common-enemies, like Islamic State. Remember when Washington bombed 'Iranian-backed militias' near the Iraqi-Syrian border? Those were members of the Popular Mobilization Units (P. M. U.), a recognized part of the Iraqi Armed Forces! (Yes, Washington intentionally bombed an allied-government's military forces.) Understandably, when the U. S. Embassy was mobbed in Baghdad, Iraqi security-forces just stood there and let the mob do as they pleased.
Now, an Iranian military-official was invited by Baghdad to the capital to coordinate attacks on common-foes, allied Washington kills him in Iraq's own capital, like Iraq were just a puppet-state and it's Washington who really gives permission & not not the elected, U. N.-recognized government. How do you think the Iraqis will act to this‽
@Ressi Turkey? Yes, Ankara has also been invading Iraq, forcing in thousands of troops without Baghdad's authorization for years!
Here's a report of an invasion in 2008, supposedly to attack 'terrorist' Kurds.
Here is another report of Ankara basically saying 'Screw asking for permission!' in 2018.
According to Qatar's state-news, this started since the 1990's, though there were some incursions with Baghdad's consent.
Quite frankly, I can understand why the Iraqis are rioting in the streets when the economy sucks, living is hard, even supposed allied-governments treat Iraq like a doormat, so foreign-troops can just barge into people's houses and/or bomb places without care, whether their intelligence-reports on the target-locations were accurate enough or not.
Turkey is very strong.
"Ankara has also been invading Iraq, forcing in thousands of troops without Baghdad's authorization for years!"
And that is true
