It looks like Cadet Bone Spurs now finds himself on the front line whether he wants to be there or not.

An $80million bounty has been placed on Donald Trump’s head in Iran in the wake of General Qasem Soleimani’s assassination.
During the televised funeral, official state broadcasters said one US dollar would be tabled for every Iranian in the country, with the cash going to whoever killed the US President.
“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80million (£61million) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump,” it was announced, according to en24.
This is a rather aggressive move by Tehran, even in light of the current situation.
And look as a Democrat I certainly do not support Donald Trump, and I do want him removed from office, but in no way do I support the idea of assassinating him.
First off that would almost certainly make him a martyr and likely give his VP Mike Pence a strong chance of winning the 2020 election, which would still be bad for the country.
But secondly doing that would also kind of give carte blanche to the conservatives to rain death on the Iranian people, and make it virtually impossible for the more liberal lawmakers to keep that from happening.
I understand the anger but if Iran were to pull this off they very well might see their country bombed into oblivion.
