  1. Why did they depict an old picture of Ursula von der Leyen? She is the embodiment of an icapable politician.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/08/world-leaders-react-to-iran-attack-on-us-bases-in-iraq.html) reduced by 82%. (I’m a bot)

    > The attack is the latest step in an escalating conflict between the United States and Iran, after the former killed Iran's top military commander Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad last week.

    > The U.K.'s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab condemned Iran's attacks on Iraqi military bases that were hosting U.K., U.S. and other coalition forces.

    > President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Iranian President Rouhani before the attacks took place.

  3. It might very well happen. Iran’s retaliation was clearly calculated, allowing them to save face without causing serious damage. Both sides can claim victory. Neither has anything to gain from escalating further.

  4. I don’t think that would happen.

  5. I wonder if they’d be calm if the US attacked one of the most important people in their army.

  6. I don’t recall any of the other leaders having their embassies attacked by an iranian sponsored mob nor having their nationals killed by iranian backed militias……

    It’s easy to call for calm when you’re not the one getting attacked.

    Feels hypocritical and this is coming from someone who’s not even american.
