Joe Biden's comments on US strike and killing of Qassem Soleimani


This is right in Joe Biden's wheelhouse. Biden is right to point out that the unintended consequences of this action could be explosive. For the entire region and beyond. Including the United States.

Trump may have thought this was an ideal distraction from his impeachment/criminal woes as well as payback: you hit me, I hit you back 10x harder. Only schoolyard bullies have no place on the world stage because the consequences of thoughtless action can be catastrophic. For everyone.

Donald Trump may have inadvertently just handed Joe Biden the White House. Because no one is looking to start WWIII and the Democratic candidate most solidly rooted in foreign affairs, diplomacy and geopolitics is the former Vice President.

Incredibly dangerous moment.
