Iran's Al-Quds Brigade-affiliated television station on Wednesday night released a senior Iranian general Sulaimani bombed the moment the image. In surveillance footage from Baghdad airport, a rocket hit a row of cars parked at the airport.
On Wednesday, U.S. media NBC quoted defense and military sources as saying the U.S. would send an additional 3,500 troops to the Middle East and additional troops to Iraq, Kuwait and other regions.
Iranian general sulemani was killed, iranians took to the streets to mourn him and protested to the united states, as well as tearing up and burning american flags.
Dalia Dasa Kaye, director of the Center for Public Policy in the Middle East, questioned the purpose of the Trump administration's action:\" What kind of purpose is the United States trying to achieve? If the goal is to reduce Iran's intervention in the region and reach a better nuclear deal, it's hard to say how that action will help.\"
Borzu Dalagahi, visiting senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's Middle East project, argued that the assassination of Suleimani was a \"senseless provocation\" as Iran would choose a tougher, more brutal successor to retaliate against the United States...
In his statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Trump of \"engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions\" that further put the lives of U.S. servicemen, diplomats and others at risk.
CNN reported that Trump ordered the killing of Iranian intelligence leaders. It was his dangerous gamble - his own political career and the lives of many others.
The report says the assassination Trump has ordered puts the United States at risk of open conflict. If a full-scale war is triggered, the security and economic situation of the United States and even the world will be hit.
The report said the Middle East and even Europe were already looking insecure for Americans because Iran could easily launch attacks on soft targets.
PJ Crowley, a former U.S. assistant secretary of state, was quoted as saying:\" Trump is no big strategist. He lives in the present and acts intuitively. It would be surprising if he considered the consequences.
As for the possible consequences of the american assassination, ruan zong-ze, executive vice president of the china institute of international studies, said the u.s.'s ties to the middle east are based on historical and realistic interests, and the u.s. cannot leave. On the one hand, America's military spending has increased substantially; on the other hand, it is paradoxical that the United States will withdraw its troops from the Middle East.
This U.S. military beheading of senior Iranian officials could be a short-term diversion of domestic politics and a bonus to Trump, but also a high-risk turn of U.S.-Iranian rivalry that will make the Middle East more volatile. America cannot walk away, for the future is uncertain.
