Thread Name: BS: US war with Iran begins
Subject: RE: BS: US war with Iran begins
Anyway back to the thread topic. When taking out a military leader in a third country this is clearly an act of was. In these days of alliances
it is the duty of the US president to at the least inform his allies if taking action that will likely involve his allies suffering retribution.
Taking out the Iranian number 2 is not quite the same as a gangland drive by shooting. That is why others have vetoed the same action in the past.
The bigger the action, the bigger the consequences.(for all)

Personally I think it was an act of outright stupidity.
