LftS: Iranian Assassination
On January 3, 2020, just as we were getting warmed up to the new year, Trump decided he would say hello to his good friends in the Middle East by sending a drone to assassinate the Iranian General Qasem Soleimani and several other Iraqi military officials. The strike happened as Soleimani was leaving his flight into Iraqi in order to deliver a message from Iran to Iraq regards request made. Since the strike, Iran has completely backed out of the nuclear deal, Iraq has said they want US troops to leave their country, and militia groups all over the region have sworn revenge on the US.
