This market is too "glib" for Jim Cramer.
But before we dive in on why, let's back up and talk about what's sending the markets down.
Thursday night, the U.S. announced that it had killed Iran's top general, Qassem Soleimani, in a military strike.
Following the death, Iran vowed retaliation.
Then the Iraqi parliament voted over the weekend in favor of expelling U.S. military forces in Iraq.
President Donald Trump responded to this by saying that the U.S. won't leave Iraq unless Iraq pays for the airbase and Trump also threatened sanctions.
And then, Soleimani's sister, Zeinab Soleimani, vowed revenge in a nationally televised address, while Iran's leaders said they would immediately roll back on commitments linked to the 2015 non-proliferation agreement that Trump abruptly abandoned in 2018.
Alright, now that we're all caught up.
"I would like to say that if this is really the train pulling out of the station, I'm going to wait for the next train because it's too glib," Cramer told TheStreet live.
