    The rationale keeps changing, by Trump and his people.

    Imminent threat to America? No.
    Imminent threat to the region? No.
    What does "imminent" mean? Trump and his people don't know.
    An embassy targeted? Maybe.
    4 embassies targeted according to the latest from Trump? I highly doubt it.
    Trump ordered the strike to appease some Republican senators? Highly probable.
    Trump wanted to distract from impeachment? Highly probable.

    Is it this simple? Highly probable.

    People seem to remain very focused on the impeachment, so that can't be it


    seems it was an opportunity to take out an individual that was on the terrorist watch list

    Trump did the right thing in killing a terrorism. He didn't do it because that terrorist was about to attack us. He chose the timing to distract from his impeachment woes. He really was just too stupid to realize that decent American people can focus on more than one thing at a time, unlike his base.

    This was also on the top poster's list:
    What does "imminent" mean? Trump and his people don't know.

    That the attack was imminent -- Trump keeps changing his story.
    Attacking on Iraqi soil, some say was an illegal act.

    It's not a coincidence that all this shiite is going down in 2020.

    Trump said Suleimani was "Seriously thinking" about attacking US embassies...So it seems he is hoping we'll buy the idea that seriously thinking about it means it is imminent.

    I guess that could be it. But then again nobody is distracted from the impeachment, are they?

    Was killing him the best solution? Yes or no.

    Are we going to kill Muqtada al-Sadr anytime soon? He has led a number of militias since 2003 that were blamed for killing Americans. Look up the Mahdi army.

    Distract from impeachment woes? Impeachment has been a huge boon for him so far. It's destroying the democrats, they are imploding by the day. Trump's numbers are better than ever. Why in the world would he be distracting from impeachment?

    He did it because this guy is a terrorist mastermind, and he needed to go. He was exiled to Iran and as soon as he left, Trump killed him, just as Obama had taken out hundreds of targets. It was a good strike and there are many Americans who will be able live their lives because of it.

    And you don't read the news, watch TV or listen to the radio? His message is all over the place.

    As an aside oh, why would anyone want to distract from this failure of an impeachment? Crazies have done such a shity job they've likely secured his re-election

    Exiled to Iran? He was a f*cking Iranian General and was killed as he arrived in Iraq.

    You really don't know WTF you are talking about.
