He probably would have launched it, if not for that durn bone spur.


Trump prefers negotiation over retaliation.

It’s a new thing.

Obama let the U.K. and Saudi Arabia dictate foreign policy. Trump has chosen a different path.

Was there any course of action (or inaction) that Trump could have taken that would meet your approval?

If so, what was it?

Or has the TDS impacted your brain such that you cannot think at all anymore?

Obama won a Nobel peace prize for doing less.

Who’s the one “raising the roof”? Looks like he’s celebrating something.

They left the meeting in the white house concerning striking Iran. Moments later Trump canceled the strike... I said it earlier, when Pelosi was for an attack on Iran, that is when I raise my "wait a minute" flag because something is not right.

Full context? We're they seriously celebrating (thinking they succeeded) goading trump into a war?

War with Iran: Please no

Maybe they’re celebrating “more sanctions”. :-/

Curious....how is it Israel's problem if it was an American drone that was shot down? I can understand Trump asking Israel to handle it, but I just don't see how this is anyone's issue but the US. Maybe I'm missing something

The main risk of Iran going nuclear is Israel's security, not ours. As such, it's primarily their problem.

Oh ok, so it's two different topics...one is Iran going nuclear, the other would be do we retaliate against them for blowing up a 200 million dollar drone.

They shot down our toy, it’s not enough to go to war. Do we even have proof it wasn’t in their airspace? There’s a reason the media is pushing war, they think it will sink trump. They’re right.

Eff Iran, let them starve to death with sanctions. It’s slower and more painful anyway.

This right here. A lost drone, especially under questionable circumstances, is not a good reason to go to war. Certainly not another middle eastern war. And especially not against a country who had an entire civilian airliner shot down by us in the 80's.

For sure. An absolute travesty. To even imagine that we mistook a civilian airliner as a military target... it's just impossible to wrap my head around.

And trying to use the loss of a drone, no matter how expensive, is absurd to push an armed conflict. It's an expensive computer. Too bad.

Definitely agree, no war. Also agree with more sanctions to let them die a slow death from within.

The US is staging a war with Iran for the benefit of no one except Israel, Saudi Arabia and the US military industry $$$ (well, and Trump’s reelection)
