(TheConservativeNews.org) – Late last year, it looked like America could have been on the verge of another large-scale war in the Middle East. Some retaliation was inevitable after Iranian-backed forces killed an American civilian contractor in Iraq in December. But, a full-scale war didn’t happen thanks to President Donald Trump’s actions.
Instead of a ground invasion, President Trump opted for targeted drone strikes. On January 3, one of these strikes hit Qasem Soleimani, Iran’s most senior military figure and the second-in-command to the country’s Supreme Leader. His death was a massive tactical boost for the United States.
As you can see from the tweet below, US-Iran relations remain fraught. However, our first priority needs to be the preservation of both our military resources and national security.
President Trump has been consistently dovish in his approach to war during his time in the White House. This move managed to avoid what could’ve been a costly and devastating war in Iran, while also protecting our national interests. Future leaders should take note of Trump’s success here.
