CFR President Says “The World Will Be The Battlefield” After Iran Escalation

The President of the Council on Foreign Relations Richard N. Haass says that “the world will be the battlefield” following a dramatic escalation in tensions between the United States and Iran.

Fears of a wider war are rising after Iran’s Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani was killed during an airstrike near Baghdad’s airport.

Haass warned that those who thought any war with Iran would look similar to previous military campaigns were being incredibly naive.

He went on to assert that developments would lead to Iraqi authorities exerting great pressure on the U.S. to leave their country.

Meanwhile, a source described as being in “close contact” with senior security officials in the Trump Administration said that Iran could respond to the killing of Soleimani by launching a massive cyberattack.

A cyberattack inside the U.S. is “the most likely way that Iran could retaliate stateside,” according to Axios.
