I don't know who is dumber here. The US killing a top military general, or Iran blowing up a Ukrainian commercial plane filled with fucking Canadians.

Definitely the latter. I don't really know what's dumb about eliminating a dangerous terrorist.

Because it creates tension between the US & Iran? Because it creates a possible proxy esque war in Iraq? I'm not say killing him was good or bad but it will have repercussions for the US and allies. If you can't see that you're really naive.

I mean Iran have already (unsuccesfully) attacked coalition bases since this occured and more damaging Iraq have asked the US to leave Iraq.

Also it's quite obvious they shot down the commercial plane by accident it had like 80 Iranian citizens onboard and Iran had absolutely nothing to gain from shooting it down.
Was it a dumb error? Yes, was it a dumb planned foreign policy move? Probably not.

There would always be tension in the region though?

I'd like to see more severe sanctions on the Iranian pro-terrorist government.

And it'd be hilarious to see the canucks beating the shit out of Iran anyway. :p

First of all: ofc it's dumb to bomb a government official of another country in that goddamn country. That's an act of war. (Americans would call it terrorism)
Second of all: I doubt that sanctions would have a that large influence on how a religious fanatic runs that country. It might fuck up their economy a bit, but that's gonna hit the Iranian people way harder than their government (it would also strengthen the anti-western propaganda and lead to even more tensions)
and last of all: it'd be hilarious to see a war in which multiple thousand if not even more than a million people could lose their lives? If you're serious about that then you're a lost case and should maybe visit a psychiatrist

Yes, so? I still find it highly inconsiderate to make race ”jokes” about civilians who just died.
