America Is the Great Satan
Trump's stupid, reckless, arrogant, illegal execution of Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleimani has been rightly dubbed an act of state terror, a blundering "lighting a match on a powder keg" exposing "foreign policy as performance art, devoid of strategic logic" that will likely prove disastrous for us, Iran and the world. It's a fitting capstone to the "decades of pointless atrocities" America has unleashed in the region - crimes of imperial hubris we and many others may now pay dearly for.
