I agree, Iran cannot take this without response.
The size and scale of that response will dictate how the US respond - if they do.
Iran's making statements that this has crossed a line.. If I were a troop stationed in any base in the ME, I would be very alert.. Lots of missiles could be lobbed at them!
I think either a ship will be sunk or multiple bases hit im guessing..
As Jack Posobiec pointed out on Friday, General Qassim Soleimani planned and financed the attacks on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Trump just now.
“ We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war”
How is killing another countries top military brass not an act of war? It's illegal regime change just like Iraq.

Do you believe regime change is the goal of U.S. policy towards Iran?
Unless regime change is the goal, destabilising Iran makes no sense.

Yeah? So? You think politics is instantaneous? You think there wasn't a lot of back and forth in those 3 years?
Not for us - but it was for them. Would you rather have gold? Or paper containing empty promises?
Not exactly - it was about maintaining the superiority of the US Dollar, and ipso facto, the US as the primary world super power.
Which they could promptly convert into gold - until 1971 that is, hence the need for a 'new deal'.
