Three Things President Trump Was as Wrong About Iran
During the third day of 2020, our current president, Donald Trump, assassinated the major general Qasem Soleimani which shocks the world. In response to this question, surprisingly, I read an article that indicates almost 40% of Americans support this action. However, I strongly condemn President Trump’s action and here are my opinions.
- Donald Trump ruined the credit of the U.S.
America is the greatest nation in the world, not only because of democracy, technology, or the American Dream but also as a country that leads the world. As a nation built and defended the rule, the U.S. should not overturn it easily, especially using assassination. This enormously hurts the prestige of the U.S., and will definitely cause other countries do not believe in the U.S.
- This action will start a common of using assassination to achieve goals
The mode of assassination is extremely dangerous, as the assassination is mutual and low cost. There are many ways to implement the assassination, especially in the U.S. that many politicians show in the public without any protection. Donald Trump killed Soleimani but his fanatic follower maybe will assassinate officers or even the normal people of the U.S. and its allies. What is more dangerous is maybe other nations will also use the assassination to achieve its goal recklessly.
- This attack will split the U.S. from the allies
The international relations right now is changing all the time. As the ruler of the world, the U.S. should enforce the law and justice with her allies; however, the missile strike not only shocks Iran but also shock all the alliances. Donald Trump “Tossed a Stick of Dynamite Into a Tinderbox” without any preparation. Whenever the U.S. tries to start a war with another country, the president should prepare it as a prolonged battle and unite the concept with all the alliances. However, Donald Trump’s strike despises the United Nations and the alliances; if there is going to have a world, Trump is not going to win it politically.
