Iraq Embassy Siege

Not sure how to handle this.  Clearly, sanctions are making Iran's thuggish leaders afraid.  But a military strike on Iran would likely bring most Iranians behind the thugs, which is doubtless the goal.  A continuing of sanctions is in order. 

The embassy is U.S. territory.  Using deadly force in self-defense is lawful and I suspect would end this provocation pretty quickly.  There would be the usual screeching from anti-American forces in Europe and the Democratic Party, but it would certainly cement votes in 2020 in the same way that Carter's utterly useless dithering in 1979-80 guaranteed a Reagan victory.
