UK must back bold Donald Trump after he put an end to evil Qasem Soleimani, who killed over 1,000 Brits and US troops

SOLEIMANI’S assassination is the most strategically significant US ­military action since the 2003 ­invasion of Iraq.

Iran will want a violent reaction but Tehran is terrified of fighting a war with the US they could not win and will not start World War Three.

Instead, this attack might spell the beginning of the end for the savage regime that has ruled Iran since 1979. They have been crippled by US sanctions and widespread street demonstrations have left the ayatollahs fearful for their survival.

President Trump’s bold action will give the protesters, as well as their anti-Iranian counterparts in Iraq, hope that one day they might bring their oppressors down.

What are Iran’s military options? Soleimani put in place a network of terrorist proxies, not just in the Middle East but around the world.

The most powerful is Lebanese Hezbollah, with tens of thousands of missiles in southern Lebanon, pointing at Israel.

They exist to react to a US or Israeli attack on Iran. But if launched they would be obliterated by Israel’s massive retaliation.

What should Britain do? We do have a dog in this fight.

Soleimani’s proxies killed more than 1,000 British and US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan in the conflicts there.

Our government should now publicly support President Trump’s actions against Iran — and must stand ready to back up the US with military forces and diplomatic ­pressure as the situation unfolds.
