The world waits to see how Iran will respond to the US airstrike that killed the man considered as possibly the most powerful military figure in the Middle East.  Iran and its allies have spent the last three days mourning the loss of General Qasem Soleimani, but they’ve made it clear: they will seek revenge. CBN News Mideast Bureau Chief, Chris Mitchell, says this is one of the biggest escalations he's seen--but he doesn't believe Iran can afford to go to war with the US.
