Iranian military commander General Soleimani killed in Baghdad strike
Fewer bad guys...a good thing.

[Image: bad-guy-2.png]

Quote:Revolutionary Guard General Qassem Soleimani, the powerful head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was killed in an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport, Iraqi TV and three Iraqi officials officials said Friday.

The officials said the strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, which were responsible for the recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

An official with the PMF blamed the U.S. military for the rocket strike, but American officials have made no comments on the incident yet. The Pentagon did not immediately respond to an inquiry from DailyMail.com.

The audacious airport strike is a potential turning point in the Middle East as U.S.-Iran relations teeter on the brink, and is expected to draw severe retaliation from Iran and and its Shiite allies against Israel and American interests.

This has the chance to escalate out of hand. Iran could engage in terrorism against civilians on the US mainland or attack ships in the gulf. Would the US and Israel then attack Iran directly? How would Russia and China respond?

Israel is at the greater risk. Anything too aggressive against them and they would go scortched earth on Iran's nuclear facilities and oil production facilities. Iran knows this so would at most continue proxy war and terrorism actions.

IMO it could get messy for a month or so, but nothing too severe will happen.

Russia is probably more focused on how to pick apart and annex an obliterated iran than they are on how to protect them or fight their war for them. Likewise with China. If anything a crippled and vulnerable Iran could get Russia and China into a conflict as each tried to move in before the other.

You go too far. Obama isn't in office anymore.

Iran will take and like it, or things will get even worse for them.

Russia won't like it, but they don't want us interfering with their Crimean land grab that Obama allowed either. China doesn't want us interfering with their Hong Kong situation. And, their economy is under severe strain, and they need us to sign the first stage of our new trade deal too. The rest of the countries on your list don't have the ability to do anything without leaving their countries open to economic and military action that would cripple them into civil wars.

Go Trump.

Instead of celebrating or at least acknowledging the good that will come from the loss of the biggest instigator of unrest in the middle east you jump straight to every geopolitical foe of the US teaming up on us and imply that we would need Europe to come to our defense.

Full.
Blown.
TDS.

Obama is pizzed tonight. Killing his good friends is not going to make him happy. John Kerry has to be losing it at this news.

Stick to obscure conference realignment scenarios.

Iran will not line up Russia and China. Turkey will not enter due to NATO. The rest have no strategic reason to join in.

The idea that half of the countries he listed could even afford to go to war against us is laughable, and half of the rest have no desire to poke the bear as, as you say, they haven't the desire or the wherewithal to poke the bear.

It seems when the Iranian leader said, "There isn't a damn thing Trump can do about it", meaning the embassy attack. Well, he isn't done..
