I think people forget that politics are set aside when it comes to war and the media. The only time the media were celebrating Trump is when he flexed a bit on Syria with the strikes. Every outlet was praising him.

I'm really going against myself by glorifying another pundit (per se). But Noam Chomsky whether you agree with his politics or not has been going after the MSM before it was cool. He was dead on about them and their agenda when it comes to war in the early 90's.

The sanctions and maximum pressure are working.

The Iranian regime are seeking to draw the president into a limited military confrontation. The Iranian people are feeling the pain and at some point they will look at the regime as ultimately responsible for their suffering. Maybe eventually there will be protests, perhaps even open rebellion against the regime. The Iranian regime has brutally crushed protests and rebellion in the past and probably will again.

The regime needs to shift their people's focus back to the "great Satan" (USA) as the sole cause of their suffering. The best way to do that is to draw the USA into a military confrontation. The president didn't take the bait, instead called it off.

The Iranian regime doesn't care how many Iranians die, they only care about their own survival. Survival against possible rebellion from their own people, and their enemies.

The president should avoid military confrontation with Iran as long as possible. Sanctions and maximum pressure are working.

imo

150 Iranian soldiers are with their families today, instead of funeral plans being made.

www.foxnews.com...

The War-Mongers and Trump-haters are not mainstream at this point in our history. New sheriff in town who actually uses his brain and heart...SMARTLY!



that also makes 150 less families hell-bent on destroying America and the West. 150 less radicalized families that will seek revenge for generations to come.


But if Iran kills an American, all bets are off. President Trump won't ignore it, like Obama did in 2011.

I think it's important to note that many nefarious actors in the US feel the same.

Make no mistake, we exchanged three fold for what we lost on 9/11 (that's just abroad).

What really grounded me on the ramp up of tensions between Iran is when I had to call our local VA medical center for work to arrange a delivery. Before you even get to the list of options you are met with the following recording-

"If you have a medical or mental emergency, hang up and call 911. If you are having thoughts of suicide, press 7 now to be connected to the veterans crisis line"


We as a nation have forgotten the cost of recent wars. We've been disillusioned by it's effect or lack their of on day to day life. We have neglected those who have served to the point that before you have to go through the robot BS that is most automated phone systems, there is an option to be mainlined to a suicide prevention line. That should tell you where we are at in taking care of our soldiers.

So I propose we remember that, and avoid worsening the crisis we have at all costs, and again, kudos to the president for doing that right now. I hope it continues.

Trump was right not to respond disproportionally. But there has to be a red line on Iranian provocations, or they’ll keep doing it.

People were wondering why Schumer and Pelosi were SO HAPPY coming out the White House briefing yesterday.

Clip: twitter.com...

They were celebrating, "Now we've got him! Trump just started war with Iran!"


Whether it was because Trump was "going to bomb Iran", or something else, either way those two are some of the slimiest human beings in DC...

Conversely, many knew Trump wouldn't attack.

Since when? Everyone was saying he was going to attack at the first opportunity because he is a warmongering Tyrant. NO ONE was saying he won't attack.

1. Host meeting with Pelosi et all, give out secret info on Iran strike.

2. Watch all the communications to Iran.

3. Call off the strike and go after the traitors.

Not me.

I'm glad that POS showed restraint and actually did something rational by not bombing Iran and potentially starting a catastrophic war.

I am supposing that some here consider me to be a leftist. I get this impression because whenever I question Trump I am barraged with name calling of liberal, socialist etc, we all know the list.

So I am at least one who applauds the actions of Trump in this specific situation. One of the few campaign promises he made that I agree with was his promise to not get us involved in all these foreign wars and in this case it appears that he is holding to that promise.

Do you have links?

All I've read are articles saying that people are upset with Trump that he was going to try and start a war without congressional oversight. And also that he only called off the strike after inquiring about casualties which he probably should of thought of in the first place before calling for an air strike.

Not that he had cancelled an air strike.

You all on the right know well that this is about the hypocrisy of the right rather than the left "wanting to kill civilians".

8 years of the right calling Obama "weak" for talking to leaders, working with allies and sanctioning. Trump has no problem killing civilians before, so take it easy... that pedestal you have him on is built out of fools gold.

You want me to post links to posts in other ATS threads?

Nice try.

Look for yourself...there are plenty.

imo...this is how it will eventually play out. Israel will eventually attack Iran and draw American forces in. The question is...will Russia and China step in to protect their ally? Blessed to live sort of close to Denver where I can hole up under the DIA.

Bolton the neocon and trump will have their war. trump knew Bolton's background, that's why he was appointed.

Sorry, false. He was called weak because he caved in and gave them everything and got nothing in return.

I'm seeing Leftists on ATS all bent out of shape over the fact Trump called off the strike against Iran 10 minutes before launch.


Before calling out complete bullcrap on this observation of yours I scanned back two days of ATS threads to try and find another thread that deals with Trump's calling off this strike.

Do you know what I found?

Nothing.

Not a damn thing.

So as I want to allow for my own failings on this point could you please refer to some of those specifically? Point them out? Link to them? I would like to read only a few of all those other ATS lefties who are all bent out of shape over the fact that Trump called off the strike........

The problem of what your saying Is that you didn’t quote one leftist just your own words and also the fact is Trump created this in the first place when he abandoned the treaty with Iran.

Also, Trump LIES all the time. You can't ever believe a word he says.
