Guess it deserves its own thread now.

We don't really know yet that they hit anything according to an account I saw on national TV news, and it might be that Iran sent some missiles into the desert to say they retaliated yet didn't inflict any damage, thereby deescalating the situation.

Agreed but they launched missiles, not rockets.

Could very well have been a face saving attack that plays well at home. Regardless, Iran certainly did not respect Trump's warnings about attacking US forces. Right now we have to hope there are no casualties.

The administration has suggested Iran is more likely to talk after Soleimani's death. And reading between the lines, Iran seems to be saying it won't fire off more rockets ***unless the U.S. responds. If there really are no American casualties, maybe everyone can stop panicking?

Seeming like this was face saving by Iran. They were GPS guided mid range ballistic missiles. No US casualties, though apparently some Iraqis were hit, probably by malfunctioning missiles

“Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched,” Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter. “We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.”

Yeah, this is a win as it sits now, and Trump can even claim it as a win (though too much crowing about it might be counter-productive). Sure, there will probably be more terrorist/proxy attacks, but those were stepped up a lot in the last 6 months anyway. The last few days were hardly the first shots of this conflict.

apparently, the racist, bigoted christian sexual predator is going to attempt to grunt his way through a statement this morning.. guess he had to get some cues from the media overnight on what he should say.

if you have a reading level at or above that of a 4th grader, I would suggest that you not watch.

I think only Congress can "formally" declare war under the Constitution. But, a President (or King in this case) can essentially start an undeclared war.

Iran isn’t stupid. A proxy war with the US is far more effective than a state sponsored one. Watching an unstable trump play whack a mole is a win for them.

Correct. Congress hasn't technically issued a declaration of war since WW2.

just wait until conversation about a potential Senate trial ramps back up.. or the calling of witnesses. Or his Deutsche Bank dealings are increasingly likely to be made public.

he'll continue to act out like the spoiled toddler he is.. putting the lives of others at risk. Iran is playing him like the fool he is.

Exactly, and even Roosevelt started an undeclared war months before Pearl Harbor.

This. Most have been to focused on what Trump ate for breakfast everyday, but this has been brewing for a while. Before the strike Iranians were protesting against their government and Iraqis were protesting about increased Iranian influence in their country/government. Iran has been poking the bear for a while trying to get us to react... and it worked. Now both Iraqis and Iranians hate us again, instead of their own governments. At least for now. Till they realize they still have no economy and basic needs.

Just GTFO and let them sort it out.
