  2. The Left Wing "Liberal Media" Cheers War and Assassinations. The cheerleader list includes CNN, NBC, the WSJ, CNBC, and USA Today.
  3. Warmonger fools like senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) piled on, pressuring Trump to 'Crush Iranian Economy' By Targeting Oil Refineries After Assassination
  4. In response, Iraq to Expel US Troops and Iran Cancels Nuclear Agreement
  5. In response to Iraq threatening to expel US troops, Trump threatened Iraq and Iran, including cultural sites.
