Abstract

On January 2nd 2020, Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike against his convoy at Baghdad Airport. LSE US Centre Director Professor Peter Trubowitz comments that it appears that there was little or no strategy behind Trump's decision on the attack: it has not sown political divisions in Iran, and there is little appetite in Washington DC for further escalation.
