The Justice of Killing Soleimani

(New York Times) Bret Stephens - What shouldn't be in doubt is the justice of killing Gen. Qasem Soleimani. In 2004, Soleimani began flooding Iraq with lethal roadside bombs which killed hundreds of Americans. In 2005, the former Lebanese prime minister, Rafik Hariri, and 21 others were killed in a massive car bombing in Beirut, carried out by Hizbullah. "There were Iranians on the phones directing the attack," a former CIA official said. "If indeed Iran was involved, Soleimani was undoubtedly at the center of this." In 2006, Hizbullah operatives abducted and killed Israeli soldiers in an operation that was carried out with Soleimani's help. It sparked a month-long war in which thousands of people were killed.
