Well this isn’t good(Iran)

I agree.  If I'm sitting at the table in the situation room and going over the possible options, the first question I'm going to ask is how many people will die if we take this option?  I'm not going to ask until the planes are in the air.

Yeah I'm starting to question this whole "mission". Would potential casualties not be addressed in the pre op briefing, before even making a decision to launch a strike? And beyond that, were there not plenty of other targets available that were not in close proximity of civilians?

 

Did Iran give a shit about the civilians who were simply doing their jobs on the oil tankers that were attacked?

 

Our leadership and military coordination are not functioning like the most powerful nation in the world should be. This is weak, feckless leadership to allow unchecked aggression like this, as well as other current events that have happened recently.

 

There is a difference between restraint and being bullied. America is straight up getting punked right now,  it's quite embarrasing.

Bingo. Iran purposefully hasnt killed anyone in the recent attacks. They are either fighting a rogue element within the military or trying to provoke the U.S. to strike first. They know trump is a spineless buffoon who is fighting off Bolton and Pompeo's calls for war.

My theory is he always goes with his gut and that almost always tells him to play to his base; and for once he had enough sense that he was getting into really deep water here, and as I said before, without Mattis there, there's no one but Bolton who's a complete war hawk which goes against Trump's instincts to avoid war to give him advice. Secretary of the Army is really way more of an administrative post and not someone to give you major foreign policy advice.

No doubt Pompeo and Bolton are pushing for retaliation. Putin may be pulling Trumps puppet strings again, just like he did when North Korea was causing problems. Iran and NK are allies of Russia so this is definitely a legitimate theory. Not to mention the chance of war and fear of it hurting his chances at being re-elected..

You snivel and bitch about "neocon warmongers" like Bolton influencing this admin, and now you're here bitching about Trump not taking the advice on a retaliatory strike that would have been well beyond a proportional response.

Hypocrite much?

 

I hope like hell Trump doesn't find a cure for cancer..

You silly-assed twats would toss it in the dumpster and call for impeachment again.

I said nothing of the sort.  I'm glad Trump stopped the strike.  

 

But thanks for being your usual dumbass self.

I’m wondering if they are just trying to sell a story that Trump was thiiiis close to pulling the trigger so Iran had better get in line, or else. Also, if nothing else, the rest of the world is more likely to side with him if he appears to be showing some modicum of restraint.

I suspect Trump was never going to retaliate.  Just make it look like he was about to go all badass but the had a compassionate change of mind.  

 

He's a conman.

This crossed my mind, especially after Putin called for him to use restraint.

As he called off the attack he said he wanted to talk to Iran, they said he wasn't worthy

Iran is going to start enriching uranium again and probably very soon.  Then what?

Not a damn thing
