    Paul had 1,000 monkeys type:
    ...and now, they're down a key guy who helps put rebellions down. Jury's way out. Power vacuums in that region rarely turn out how America would like.

I don't have any special insight into this situation, but I think Iran is stable enough (as compared with, say, Syria) that it's not going to descend into civil war or get taken over by ISIS because of this. And the thing about accidentally killing a lot of their own people is nationally embarrassing. Also, I think when it comes down to it Iran is a pretty weak nation militarily, at least without Russia. But if Shithole keeps his thumb in his ass and stops tweeting war crimes I doubt there's going to be much more furor. (fingers crossed / knock on wood)
