    The Americans will gain nothing from a strike on Iran. It'll backfire. One who lives in a glass house must not throw rocks.
    Answer me this. If the Iranians were to have flown an unmanned drone above Continetal Usa or near International water or airspace. You think America wouldnt shoot it down. What were they doing there

    Trump chickened out. This is worse than not taking action.

    Trump is an isolationist who doesn’t believe in starting new wars. He might threaten and use strong language, but he is more cautious than any of his predecessors. Though he will make threats of biblical proportions against Maduro and his military, he doesn’t give a fok about Venezuela and nor will he send any American troops there, any other American President would’ve actively been plotting the government of Maduro to flee. He’s already saying the drone attack wasn’t sanctioned by the Iranian government and it was brought down by a “loose and stupid Iranian officer” aka a lone wolf rogue officer.

    He's probably afraid of failure more than anything else.

    It's a lose-lose proposition for him that his political rivals are trying to push him into.

    You can't just send over a couple of missile and be done with it like Syria.

    Iran has a decent air defence and the US will need to take those down to actually hit anything of value.

    Which means mobilizing a whole Navy and Air Force division if not a whole group... i.e. hundred of billions of dollars.

    If they commit to that level then the Ruskies will get involved and Trump will be seen as the President who started ww3.

    If he just sends out missiles then he'll look bad as most won't reach their targets.

    I honestly do not think Trump runs the show. Looking at his tax bill, his plans on healthcare, abortion, supreme court picks, judgeship appointments and so on. There are people in his circle who tell him what to do and he does it. The man does not know what he is doing. If Bolton and Pompeo want to start a war, they'll find a way to convince Trump into an attack.

    he cant launch a thing and he knows it, iran is not iraq or afganistan, It be catastrophic for the whole region and america too, both iran and israel will suffer like neva before and americans will come greatly wounded not to fight anotha war again for a long time to come.
    and thats if chinese and russians not physically involved.
    all these hawks just realising now that it be worse than vietnam,No doubt he would've attacked any otha smaller country in a split second.
    Big mouthed Bolton and that fat cow pompeo now scurrying under the table. Love it when stupid idiots put in their place. Trump chickened out. shortsighted people saying trump didnt want war,,baloney,,why he left the nuclear deal, why he strangled iran with tougher sanctions, why he deployed warships,why all these false flags..give me a break.

    Sxb, the whole region and Islam in particular will descend into war, Shia on one side and Salafists plus Israel and Alt-right on the other. America and in particular Trump are well aware of that. The Saudis and the Emirates are playing with fire. A war with Iran would disable Saudi oil. The majority of the population in the Saudi Eastern province which produces almost all of Saudi oil are Shi’a. It won’t happen.

    thats exactly what am saying, there wont be war,its not gonna come. they thought iran would succumb to their bombastic threats,it didnt work out infact to the contrary and iran will build the bomb and no one will blame thm for it.

    Like Kim Jong Un of North Korea, Trump announced that he will like to meet the ayotallah of Iran. Threaten America, you will become Trump’s best buddy. This man hates wars.

    When uncle Putin hears an American crisis, it’s an opportunity to test his latest weapons and why will Iran hesitate using it on a drone on it’s airspace? They are not Bashar Asad or Alshabaab.

    I'm betting Russia and China ally with Iran if any conflict arises.
