All you Trump supporters, he lied to you, conned you. He accused Obama of starting a war with Iran to get re-elected —look this shit up, he has a tweet for everything. I voted for Trump because I didn’t want the same old politicians running thing the same ole way, feeding the military industrial complex, international empire building, etc. basically modern day imperialism instead of taking care of the average, hard working Americans. And focusing on American domestic stuff, and Trump doesn’t really do much for the average American and now this. He even sent troops, our mighty US military, like lapdogs and mercenaries for Saudi Arabia, a country where the 9/11 terrorists came from. Trump turned out to be everything he’s not and that’s the damn truth, he isn’t shaking things up and draining the swamp, he brought an even bigger swamp with the amount of lobbyist he put into government. And what do these lobbyists, typically politicians want, feed the military industrial complex more. And some of you saying “fuck it, I’m ready for war”, you’re little Trump play your life as if it’s insignificant pawn in the military industrial complex. Then when you suffer from PTSD, you’ll get no quality care as a Veteran you deserve, Trump has done little for war veterans, it’s sad. Now he might have potentially started a major conflict, hopefully not war but this dude he ordered to kill is a damn high ranking official, 2nd to the Supreme Leader. This is no joke, wtf is he thinking. We can’t be involved in another Iraq and Vietnam, heck Trump dodged the draft like the con man he is.

This was such a moronic thing to do. Foolish heroism is bound to come back and bite the US up its ass (as much as I'd not want such a thing to happen). An absolutely unwanted thing to do. Trump's got himself stuck neck deep in crap with this

Some interesting pearls of wisdom from a while back by the "Supreme Leaders of the US" In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran. (Nov 29, 2011) Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate. (Oct 9, 2012) Don't let Obama play the Iran card in order to start a war in order to get elected--be careful Republicans! (Oct 22, 2012)

In all of this, something that seems to have taken a backset is what the PM of the country in which this attack took place Abdul-Mahdi called the airstrike a "massive breach of sovereignty," saying "the two martyrs were huge symbols of the victory" against the Daesh terror group.
