They had very good reason to take this man out and sends a clear message to Iran that there is consequence to bad behaviour

But there are also consequences for targeted strikes.

of course but that does not mean you can sit back and let these people just act without impunity

Absolutely. I don't agree dropping bombs on an already unstable region is the solution though.

Probably shipping at risk and the world economy takes fright.

America have wanted control of Iran for the last 30 uears because of its geographical position.and its ability to control oil coming through the Straits of Hormuz.

Doesn't bode well either for that British woman who's been jailed in Tehran.

He’s also an official general in the current Iranian government, i mean that’s essentially declaring war on someone.

And the US are hardly squeaky clean in all this, levelling facilities and killing 25 before the embassy attacks.

This is the second most powerful man in Iran, and by the Iranian people considered a hero. This is going to escalate to pretty scary levels.

Tbh the oil situation has changed for the US. Not a lot of their ships travel there these days largely because of shale gas.

I'm sure Iran is calculating their response.

Can someone tell me why Iraqis were attacking the US embassy when its Iran that America attacked last week .. ?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I saw this brief summary posted elsewhere and it’s the best I’ve seen so far so here you go

“Soleimani was head of their Quds Force that would prop up shadow interventions in foreign countries, and al-Muhandis was head of Kata'ib Hezbollah, one of the militias they were propping up in Iraq. al-Muhandis was personally leading his Kata'ib Hezbollah militia in storming the US embassy the other day.

Both the US and Iranian militias are in Iraq fighting Sunni ISIS, but the Iranians have taken over the Iraqi government after the US largely withdrew and have been using these militias to slaughter protesters (500+ dead, 21000+ injured) in the past 3 months of uprisings against them. And the US and Iran have been teetering on the edge of conflict for some time now. Kata'ib Hezbollah launched a missile barage attack that killed a US contractor, the US responded with airstrikes on their headquarters that killed 25 Kata'ib Hezbollah and leveled their facilities. Kata'ib Hezbollah responded by gathering with the other two Iranian militias and storming the US embassy, the US responded by first dropping troops in to repel them and then launching this airstrike killing both the commander of Kata'ib Hezbollah and Someimani.

This is a very big deal”

I expect some score settling to come. From many sources.

they didnt drop bombs... targeted drone strike on a person or persons
----------------------------------------------------------------------
That's purely semantics - it amounts to the same thing.

Tbf they’re only doing what the US have been doing for years, shadow government from behind the scenes.

It’s just people think it’s okay when they do it, it’s not and when others do it they “liberate” the country.

Soleimanni was not a good man, but the US are just doing whatever they want with little regard for the rest of the world here.

As I said at the top I believe this is a calculated plan.
