The relationship between USA and Iran went a bit threatening on Friday, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani was killed by a US drone attack near the Baghdad airport. The delegation from Iran was sent to Baghdad in which the maj. gen. Suleimani was accompanied but the incident that took place triggered the tension between Iran and USA.
A huge crowd gathered at the funeral of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani. The mourning crowd depicted the emotional values they had for the General. USA justified their act by calling this a preemptive act for precaution of any future mishaps.
We killed the most powerful man in Tehran short of the Ayatollah.
This was not an act of revenge for what he had done in the past.
This was a preemptive, defensive strike planned to take out the organizer of attacks yet to come.
