The damage is our relationship with Iraq, not Iran. I cannot imagine how the current Iranian regime could hate the US any more, so it's not really a question of damage in that relationship. But the way this was done, hitting this foreign dignitary (he was not just a military figure) in someone else's sovereign territory, has done huge damage to the way Iraqis and many other Arab populations regard the US. You did notice that their parliament voted to expel US troops? Recovery is really not possible as long as Trump is POTUS. Maybe the next President will find time, while juggling all the other crises that he is creating and will leave behind, to also try to cope with ruined relations in the Arab/Islamic world.
