Thanks to former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, Iraq is already a fiefdom of Iran (“Neutralizing Soleimani,” Web, Jan. 5). Obama/Biden’s foreign policy in Iraq was irresponsible and allowed Iran to take political control of the country during U.S. occupation.

Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden are directly responsible for an incredibly inept and dangerous Iraq/Iran policy. Today, their “elite” former staffers, including Susan “Benghazi” Rice, are critical of President Donald Trump for killing Soleimani — though the president had constitutional authority to do so.

Mr. Trump wanted to stop “endless wars” in the Middle East. To do so, he must put an end to “endless terrorists” and “endless terror states” such as Iran.
