Warm take...

This should make me popular...but I have a question: How is Soleimani any different than any number of terror cell leaders the US has eliminated in Iraq since 2014?

Quds force, which Soleimani commanded, has been designated as a terrorist organization by several countries, including the US. Soleimani himself was on the terror watch list.

I'm NOT making an argument for the infallibility of "terror lists", I just want to know why THIS drone strike is somehow pushing us towards WW3.

I don't have all the answers...but I will point out that NONE of the people issuing their hot takes on the "assassination" have access to the intel on what he had actually been up to in Iraq, and that includes me.
