I do not have enough information to form an opinion on this topic.

@9MZYW6FTranshumanist from Michigan answered…2yrs

I trust the judgements of our military officials. All of these decisions should be made by them.

@9MXN5M3Women’s Equality from Utah answered…2yrs

No, any attack on a suspected terrorist should be focused on capturing not killing.

@9MTNJHWDemocrat from Connecticut answered…2yrs

No, I think it should have been approved by Congress and done as a LAST resort

@Raegan-WauthierWomen’s Equality from Connecticut answered…2yrs

yes only because the military had proof and a huge reason to believe it would be the best thing to keep America safe and more people alive that didn't need to be killed.

@9MHNPZXWomen’s Equality from California answered…2yrs

He did bad things but no one deserves to be killed. He should have been put in jail.

No, assassinations are illegal and Trump should be impeached again.

@9LNDK7XGreen from Texas answered…2yrs

This greatly oversimplifies the complexities of conflict in the Middle East. This attack greatly inflamed existing tensions, while the effectiveness of the action beyond a show of force is in question.

@9LMK9FQWrite-In from Virginia answered…2yrs

Yes, though not the methodology. The drone strike was reckless and could have started an unnecessary war.

@9LM2DZRPeace and Freedom from New Mexico answered…2yrs

The US should use its power to capture and subdue the perpetrator unless there was irrefutable evidence AND there are no other ways to stop the upcoming attack

@9LD4N5XRepublican from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

No, they should have been captured and tried through legal channels

@9LC23PPRepublican from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

I do not support killing but the world is better off without him.

@9L3568TLibertarian from Colorado answered…2yrs

No, it should be the policy of the US and all other developed nations to refrain from targeting other countries' leadership when not at war.

@9KY6HJKWomen’s Equality from New Jersey answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if it was legal, evidence-supported, and won't start a war.

@9KBGBN5Democrat from Tennessee answered…2yrs

No. It could have impulsively started an unnecessary war with Iran and was arguably illegal under international law.

@9KB673RTranshumanist from Minnesota answered…2yrs

Yes, although it is regrettable that other methods of recourse were not considered

@9K6YP6FVeteran from Indiana answered…2yrs

I would prefer capture and trial in military court if there were crimes being committed against our country.

@9K25ZDCPeace and Freedom from Virginia answered…2yrs

Both, I've never heard of this man but violence is never an answer

@9JVX4LYConstitution from North Carolina answered…2yrs

yes we seem to have successfully worked with Middle East countries to remove a violent terrorist without creating another Iraq/Libya situation

@9JRKJJJProgressive from Montana answered…2yrs

@9JQNJ4ZGreen from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

If Soleimani absolutely, positively had to die, should have used more covert, deniable means. But otherwise, killing him carried unnecessary risk of escalating things to war

@9JLRS8HAmerican Solidarity from New York answered…2yrs

Neither side was in the right. The president shouldn't have acted without Congress, but going to war is not the answer either.

@9JJ7JRNTranshumanist from Illinois answered…2yrs

In theory yes, he was a threat to national security. But, it wasn't approved by Congress, so in practice no.

@9JFHCJPTranshumanist from Texas answered…2yrs

@9J99PY8Democrat from New York answered…2yrs

@9HX9M62Veteran from California answered…2yrs

Further investigation should take place and action should be approved by international agreements.

@9HSX7STGreen from Virginia answered…2yrs

@9HN3FNMPeace and Freedom from Colorado answered…2yrs

No, this strike could start a war in the Middle East, and whilst it's not illegal to not get congressional approval I feel like it still should've at least been mentioned to congress (even better would be letting them approve it).

@9HPBJNFPeace and Freedom from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Soleimani was a terrorist but I wish the US would have been more careful

@9HNLXFTWomen’s Equality from Louisiana answered…2yrs

If he truly was planning attacks on US agencies and diplomats then I support the killing of the Major. However due to propaganda and misinformation and the dehumanizing and pigeon-holing of any Muslim at this time I find it hard to believe information given to me that supports the presidents decisions just because I'm told that it's true.

@9HN5X3XLibertarian from Texas answered…2yrs

Nothing should justify killing another human being. It is not our job to kill others.

@9HMLXZPTranshumanist from Virginia answered…2yrs

We're better off with him dead but the proper channels should have been followed prior to carrying out the strike.
