- World War 3 Proof: Horrifying Reason Trump’s Iran Raid Really Could Spark Global Conflict
by CHARLIE BRADLEY, https://www.express.co.uk/
WORLD WAR 3 fears have erupted after US President Donald Trump gave the go ahead for the explosive drone strike which resulted in the death of influential Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. The targeted killing of one man has already started a worldwide conflict once before and, with chaos in the Middle East affecting many nations, there is a chance hostility could spill over into all-out war once again.
General Soleimani was killed at an airport in Baghdad when he and Iran-backed militia figures were hit by a US drone strike. US President Donald Trump tweeted a picture of the US flag after the killing of the general, while the Pentagon claimed in a statement that Soleimani “was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region”.
The statement added: “This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.” General Soleimani was a central figure in Iran’s efforts to wield power beyond its borders in the Middle East, where Tehran is competing with US-backed rivals Saudi Arabia for political influence.
