Remember this past Summer when IRAN was attacking cargo ships, and shot down at least one U.S. Military drone?
President Trump warned Iran's leadership that the moment they hurt or killed an American, they would pay a "serious price".
The U.S. military carried out airstrikes in Iraq and Syria on Sunday (12.29.2019) — days after a U.S. defense contractor was killed at a military compound in a rocket attack, that also injured 4 U.S. troops.
Military jet fighters conducted "precision defensive strikes" on five sites of Kataeb Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Iraqi militia. Air Force F-15 jet fighters carried out the strikes.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien traveled Sunday to Mar-a-Lago in Florida to meet with President Trump and discuss the strikes.
According to analyst Sundance at the website Conservative Tree House, the death of an American contractor, and wounding of four American Soldiers, was sufficient reason for beginning the process that will lead to achieving the Trump Administration's ultimate goal, of blasting Iran's terrorist-friendly leadership into the next life.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: If they think Iran is attempting to bait the U.S. into military action in Iraq that will facilitate the agenda of Iran… then why would Pompeo, Esper and Milley take the bait?
The most likely answer is because they (DoState/CIA) wanted to take the bait… then stage an overreaction (DoD)…. and call it “defensive” (DoS)… which makes matters worse…. and draws us in deeper (DoD/DoS)… which is the excuse for war with Iran…. which is ultimately the end goal.
Hopefully, it would NOT be "War with Iran", but rather, a "surgical" operation against the leaders of Iran. (i.e. Cruise missiles while they're in daily prayer.)
For internal domestic reasons, the people of Iran don't like their leaders. For sponsoring international terrorism, the United States, and most other nations of the world would like to see Iran's leadership replaced also.
President Trump a few hours ago: "Iran WILL pay a VERY BIG PRICE!" - Referring to IRAN's use of proxy terrorists to storm the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq earlier today.
Hey World: Do Not Kill Americans!

“These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner,” he tweeted Sunday afternoon.
“Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!”

To be honest, in arenas like Iraq, the killing of contractors shouldn't result in revenge attacks. Contractors don't represent their nation and they get paid the big bucks directly because of the associated risks.
Iran's big mistake was also managing to kill military personnel and, to a lesser extent, the sponsored attack on the diplomatic mission.

Trump will probably strike their proxies, Trump plays chess and he is not going to strike their civilians because the people of Iran already hates their government.

Care, you do know that a U.S. defense contractor's life is valued is no were near the value of a Iranian General. That is just stupid for Trump to even think about killing such an important man over some undesirable, I beat he was a Republican to boot....
Orange Man Bad!

Judging from President Trump's statements over the past two days, the killing of terrorist-General Soleimani, and the way it was done, served multiple purposes.
1) Avenge the deaths/injuries of those he has murdered and maimed.
2) Prevent him from killing innocent men/women/children going forward.
3) Serve notice that Iran's leaders will face the same fate as Soleimani if they kill protestors.
4) President Trump is not afraid to take them out one-by-one, if necessary.
5) Killing Americans is punishable by execution, regardless of position or rank.
