WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin lawmakers took to social media Tuesday, to talk about Iran.

The ongoing conflict there was a topic of posts both before and after the strike.

Senator Ron Johnson tweeted out after attack, “For everyone’s sake, I pray there are no casualties and Iran does not continue its escalation.”

Meanwhile, Senator Tammy Baldwin posted on Twitter before the strike about the conflict there, saying the American people are sick and tired of sending young men and women to war in the Middle East, and supporting limiting the president’s ability to wage war there.

Some kind of attack from Iran was expected in the wake of the killing of their top general.

A political science professor at UWM also says this is part of an effort to pressure Iraq to kick U.S. troops out of the country.

“They ordered or threatened the Iraqi military that it should leave all bases where there are U.S. troops present, because otherwise it’s providing human shields to the Americans,” said Professor Horowitz.

Horowitz expects this is not the end, and to expect more attacks in the coming days.
