President Trump, of the USA, ordered an airstrike Friday, that killed an Iranian state official, General Qassem Soleimani. The death of General Soleimani came about due to threats and actions towards the US, committed by this state official, according to the United States. One thousand plus protestors in Iran, ‘innocent civilians’, were tortured and killed under General Soleimani’s command.
Many people are wondering if he started or stopped a war and President Trump’s response, ‘We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war’. Many do not believe him and think World War III is just around the corner. Some feel an American draft is about to take place. Many others support the actions taken by the president and feel he is protecting the people of the US. While thousands fill the streets of Iran, in Soleimani’s hometown, to protest his death in a call for revenge against the United States, many others are glad one less alleged terrorist is gone from the earth.
The video ends with President Trump stating his respect for Iranian civilians. He goes on to say the Iranian people are remarkable ‘with an incredible heritage’. Only time will tell whether Iran retaliates or not. Only time will tell if there is a war or not. And, only time will tell whether the US president was justified or not in the killing of General Soleimani.
