Most people consider a new year to be a new start for them. I mean, technically it is another day in the finite journey that is our lives. But if the thought gives someone any semblance of solace and ability to cope with the endless cycle of lunacy surrounding us then who are we to complain? So, you could imagine their surprise when they woke up to see World War 3 trending. And if you’re wondering how did that come to be, well, Donald Trump had something to do with it.
So, here’s how things went down. According to Express, The US compound in Baghdad was attacked by around 6000 demonstrators who were angry about the deaths of militia members in US air strikes. This was followed by a threat to Iran from US President Donald Trump saying that Iran will “pay a very big price” for the attack on the US embassy along with an airstrike that has apparently killed top Iranian General Qassim Suleimani in Baghdad.
According to the New York Times, the Pentagon stated that,
“General Suleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Suleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.”
