U.S. President Donald trump was suspected of concealing the possibility of a military response to Iran after a rocket attack on U.S. base in Iraq. This conclusion Democrats did after the briefing, which the senators called the worst event of military Affairs in history, writes Politico.
In particular, Congressman Mike Lee (Mike Lee) said that the message they received from the speakers, “not to debate and not to argue” about the advisability of further military intervention in the conflict with Iran. Senator Robert Menendez (Robert Menendez), in turn, said that the administration had not provided clarity in relation to potential attack, and complained about the withholding of information from Congress.
In addition, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (Pramila Jayapal) called rash order trump to kill the Iranian General of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps (IRGC) Qassem Soleimani. According to her, the American leader made a rash act, as he had no evidence of imminent threat or attack Iranian commander in the United States.
The Ipsos and Reuters survey conducted after the order of the President about the murder of Soleimani, showed that 53 percent of U.S. citizens are dissatisfied with actions of trump. Moreover, among Americans support the Democratic party, the majority — 86 percent. Republicans, by contrast, approve of the policy of the American leader against Iran — this was stated by 79 percent of respondents.
On the night of 8 January, the Iranian revolutionary guards launched a missile attack on military targets in Iraq. The attack was a response to the deaths in Baghdad the commander of the special forces “al-Quds” Soleimani as a result of American air strikes. The operation was called “Martyr Soleimani”.
