Forums - Politics Discussion - Iranian General Killed by US Attack

Well hell. We may have just started a war.

We (the US) carried out an airstrike that in Iraq killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran’s elite Quds Force and architect of its regional security apparatus and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces.

This is the kind of action that Iran will retaliate for...militarily.  For all the talk about bringing the troops home and ending the wars in the Middle East and southwest Asia, we may have ruined it all.

I hope nobody takes the bait.

I will be absolutely shocked if Iran doesn't retaliate.  The recent Embassy issue and now this?

Oh boy...

There is a tweet for everything. Trump starting a war in an election year..

"White House budget official told Pentagon that order to hold Ukraine aid came from Trump, national security site reports"
"DOJ Repeatedly Redacted Emails Expressing Concern That Trump Hold on Ukraine Aid Broke the Law"
‘Somebody Should Go to the Slammer for This’: Legal Experts Shocked and Appalled by DOJ’s Ukraine Redactions"
"Pentagon says US airstrike killed powerful Iranian general"

What do these 4 articles have in common? They all came out January 2nd. Anyone actually consider this timing coincidence?

  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Here's to a short year.

Well shit...

Well, it will be interesting to see how this develops.
Probably wouldn't be the first president to start a war to boost chances of re-election.
