    Wow. You really are horribly informed. First you think the middle east was stable until Trump and now you think Iran was killing US soldiers in Iraq back during OIF due to Trump canceling the nuclear deal. So what you think Iran's leadership can tell the future.

    TDS really effects some peoples ability to think.

    The correct response to this, given the lack of American casualties, is "nothing at all."

    We don't even acknowledge that it happened. Just GRIN into the camera and waggle your eyebrows. Dude can sleep with one eye open for the next few weeks.

    You think that is all that the note dead general did.

    It's funny having conversations with people who have no idea what goes on the world around them.

    But then your blood sucking mercenary comment proved that nothing you say should be taken seriously.

    Re: [W:104]Iran state TV: Tehran fires at Iraqi base housing US troops

    Trump has tweeted that "all is well." Relatively restrained tweet, just praised the American military. So far so good. I hope this is it.

    Like I said in my first participation here I always assumed the Iranians would huff and puff but do little. Apparently that's exactly what they did tonight so escalation is not a given.

    At one point there were tweeter rumors of 20 American casualties which would have been a full-blown disaster and would almost certainly lead to war.

    So I'm relieved.

    If Trump wisely doesn't do anything, this thankfully could be over.

    Trump shouldn't mock them and force their hand. He should let them appease their domestic protesters by appearing to have attacked us (when they ultimately didn't).

    But I'm not too hopeful that Trump will keep his small fingers off his smartphone's keyboard.

    The Iranians backed down. They know they don't want this.

    Stop with the childish war mongering. It doesn't help you score points for your progressive team.
    Murdering the leadership of another government is an act of war. The idea you would accuse me of war mongering, while supporting a war monger is absurd. Not sure if your post is just dishonesty or a weird attempt at comedy.
