Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
I was born shortly after World War II ended. I was a toddler during the Korean War. I was in high school during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was in college during the Vietnam War. I was a working man during the Gulf War, the Iraq War, and the never ending Afghanistan War. Now I’m retired and it seems that we are on the precipice of war with Iran.
So my provocative question today is a three parter:
Do you feel that Donald Trump was justified in ordering a drone strike that resulted in the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force, in an airstrike in Baghdad last week?
Do you think Trump’s decision will lead America into a hot war with Iran?
Do you think Trump’s motives are political and self serving?
Before you answer that last question, watch this video from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
