Did Trump Break Rules Of War?

The strike against Soleimani ordered by Donald Trump could have broke long standing rules of war unleashing unknown combat scenarios.

Will the nature of war change now that the rules have been blown away by Donald Trump? How will Iran enact revenge and accountability for their general?

Could Iran go after senior administration officials in the U.S. government?

Thom Hartmann discusses the dangers of violating the so-called "rules" of war. He then notes how fragile of a notion "rules of war" is.  "War is organized mass murder," Hartmann says.
