Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Comes news overnight that we killed an Iraqi militia leader and an Iranian general via an airstrike as they were driving to the airport in Baghdad. If a US general were killed by a country we were not at war with while driving in a country allied with a 3rd party we'd be pissed. If a US citizen were killed by an allied airstrike while driving to Dulles Airport, we'd be pissed. From the viewpoint of Iraq and Iran, this is a two-fer.

Iran MUST retaliate, so they will. In Iraq, every yahoo who's been running around badmouthing the Americans is saying "see, I told you so!"

This is what happens when you conduct foreign policy by Tweets while sitting on the can.
