Donald Trump’s Iran Attack
Missile Attack

President Donald Trump ordered a fatal attack to Major General Qasem Soleimani. On January 3,  a drone carrying a GBU-12 Paveway II laser-guided bomb that struck near Baghdad International Airport where Soleimani was at the time. In a discourse after the attack, Donald Trump stated that the attack was done to prevent a war and not to start one, but unfortunately citizens in Iran did not believe this. They have promised to take revenge against United States according to what happened. This affects all Americans since it is unpredictable what the country of Iran would do, be it attacking one of our cities or something even worse. The effect has been that American citizens feel unprotected living under Trump’s command.


Now-a-days, social media provides good information and statistics on news going on every day. The social media platform that our president uses the most is Twitter, where he has discussed the incident. After the attack, he tweeted the American flag, as a patriotic way of saying that he did what had to be done. “General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught!” Trump tweeted. “He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself,”  Trump tweeted about Soleimani. In this tweet, he states his reason for killing the Iranian general.

Iran’s response

A few days after the incident, Iran attacked American Iraqi bases. Fortunately, there were no casualties. We still don’t know how Iran will take revenge for what happened and how we will prevent it.
