Those cheering an escalation of more Mideast wars got their wish tonight as a Trump Authorized Strike Killed Iran’s Soleimani.
Qassem Soleimani, leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ foreign wing, was killed in a strike on his convoy in Iraq, an attack his Iraqi allies blamed on the U.S.
Top Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes was killed alongside Mr. Soleimani when their convoy was struck on the road leading to Baghdad International Airport.
Their deaths are likely to mark the beginning of a dangerous new chapter in the rivalry between the U.S. and Iran. Earlier this week, supporters of an Iran-backed militia attempted to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

If you seek war with punishing, illegal sanctions, it's easy enough to get.
