Donald Trump president of the United States has assassinated a “bad man” named Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, who just happens to be the trusted confidant of the Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as well as the 2nd most influential/loved figure in Iran.
So what does President Trump say?
“The United States military executed a flawless precision strike that killed the number one terrorist anywhere in the world, Qassem Soleimani.”
Another blanket statement with no evidence to back it up whatsoever. Great. Kind of like George Bush’s false statement that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and thus needs to be destroyed. Doesn’t America have weapons of mass destruction? So by that logic shouldn’t we be destroyed? But no America is the good guys right?
If you’re not caught up on America’s military involvements around the world then have a nice read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_the_United_States#Cold_War_era_(1945%E2%80%931991)
Going back to Trumps statement of taking out a terrorist, what if some leader felt the same about Trump and attempted or succeeded in taking him out? Would that be justified? Can we just kill whoever we want, whenever we want, for whatever reason we want? Is that how it works? Trials are no longer needed. Evidence is no longer required. We’re the moral anchor by which all other nations must follow, just because we say we are?
Before America killed Iran’s general they set up sanctions on the country. Sanctions might mean nothing to most people, but sanctions is actually war. It makes it extremely difficult for other nations to trade with the nation that has sanctions. So that means limited resources the country might need like food, water, iron, copper, oil and whatever else. This video is a decent explanation of that:
So what’s likely going to happen next? Well Israel has already declared it’s support of the United States for their assassination, and most likely Iran will declare war on the USA. So then Iran and it’s allies will be in a brawl with USA and its allies, which is why many people this is leading to World War 3.
