BERN, Switzerland—Hours after a U.S. strike killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the Trump administration sent an urgent back channel message to Tehran: Don’t escalate.

The encrypted fax was sent via the Swiss Embassy in Iran, one of the few means of direct, confidential communication between the two sides, U.S. officials said.

In the days that followed, the White House and Iranian leaders exchanged further messages, which officials in both countries described as far more measured than the fiery rhetoric traded publicly by politicians

Was that a threat or a plan?

No doubt, sounds more like a threat than "diplomacy". An administration of A-1, junior-high a-holes.

The fact that Iran gave the U.S. a 1 hour warning that they were going to strike a U.S. base in retaliation means that there’s a lot of dealing going on behind the scenes that we know nothing about.
