World War 3 has official set the record for the shortest World War ever according to historians*.
World War 3, as many news aficionados know was started when the United States disproportionately retaliated against Iran for killing and maiming hundreds of US servicemen, and recently killing a US contractor. The United States killed the mastermind behind these deaths, General (Kasey) Qasem Soleimani.
Most media pundits agree (as well as unarmed sources) that the proper response would have been to kill innocent Iranian conscript soldiers that had nothing to do with the terroristic decisions. That in their opinion would have been a more balanced approach, rather than killing the actual man responsible. The decision to kill the Iranian General led to predictions that the USA was starting World War 3.
It did not take long for these predictions to come to fruition. On January 7th in retaliation for killing their innocent General, Iran sent several cruise missiles into unoccupied areas of a US Air Force base in Iraq. Within a couple hours nothing else happened. While Word War 3 may have been short, the brutality of missiles landing in unoccupied areas will haunt the minds of crickets for generations.
