The dog is wagging. This is not a proportional response, killing Qassem Soleimani.
All sorts of questions yet to be answered, such as why was Soleimani in Iraq, but it apparently is now a provocation, with the possibility of reigniting the Iraq-Iran war, among other conflicts.

Trump’s need for a terror event to wag the dog will come soon as retaliation. Americans everywhere in the world are being imperiled. This event demonstrates how an impeached Trump is down to the last strategic moves to try to ensure reelection in November.
The consequences of killing Soleimani are hard to grasp; this is the biggest news in the #MiddleEast for years.
