Killing IRGC Commander Qassem Suleimani may present as a unique signature statement from President Trump regarding the attack on our U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
Whilst cheering an “anti-Benghazi” moment, The Last English Prince fears there will be a retaliatory attack on U.S. soil in days to come.
General Qassem Suleimani was legendary within the ranks of the Iranian military/intelligence apparatus.
The Grand Ayatollah community will be forced to respond.
It will be asymmetrical. And it just might be devastating.
It is one thing to assassinate a non-state actor.
We assassinated a symbol of Iranian power.
I will not be darting over to the POTUS twitter feed for fear of reading a chest-thumping Tweet.
Knocking off General Qassem Suleiman is a feel-good moment, but perhaps not the most prudent of responses for the attack on our symbol of sovereignty in Baghdad.
Verbal threats are populating the Twitter zone.
May God Bless America. And may the average American remain safe in coming days.
