If there were deaths.

I think that tweet would have went differently.

A country is not just a piece of land. It is the people who inhabit that land and their culture. To wish destruction on a country is to wish destruction on an entire people and their way of life.

To do so on the Internet anonymously is the definition of cowardly ignorance.

I never once wished destruction.. I said we deserve it. From all we have caused. I am sure the rest of the world would agree, no? I do not condone violence, I am no threat, I am just saying.

That means one of two things:

1) Trump is satisfied that Iran is just posturing and not seriously trying to kill Americans.

or

2) Trump will be announcing the results of the massive drone strike tonight.

The morning light will tell us which is true.

I said we deserve it.. You all are the ones wishing it on someone else.

We do not deserve destruction. No country on the planet has not caused deaths. To say we deserve destruction is to say humanity deserves destruction.

Some would call that genocide.

Nice edit... I saw the original post.

I do not wish destruction on anyone. I only say we have the right and duty to defend ourselves.

If the reports of no American casualties are true, then this was almost certainly just posturing.

Heck, maybe this was arranged via back-channels as a face-saving way for Iran to conclude the situation.
Weren't American troops removed from those bases just a few days ago?

I said we deserve it

Ok, let's run with that premise. Now tell me the reasons why Iran deserves it.

Can't stop editing, can you? I must have struck a nerve.

Who here is wishing the destruction of Iran? I want Iran to stop killing Americans.

Isn't this post a bit contradicting? Wishing self destruction while chastising others for the destruction of others? But ignore the fact that wishing self destruction would directly effect me and my family, therefore, by wishing it upon yourself, by extension, you're wishing it on someone else as well.

I think it is because how could they know the number of dead this fast.

What takes place in the coming days will define Trumps presidency and American influence throughout the middle east.

If no clear visible retaliation is made then Trump risk being labeled a coward and American policy will continue to be one of appeasement.

if retaliation is made and this continues to spin out of control then trump will be remembered as the loose cannon that started the war of all wars.

I have always been a trump supporter simply because it angers all the other life long politicians and they deserve everything civilized society can put forth to their and their pockets detriment.

May the iranian civilized society become less civilized in order to gain a free civilization. Understand that faith is a personal relationship with our maker and not a forced one at the hands of an imperfect human.

To them it is a war of religion and faith and to us a war of civility and individual freedoms that should make us afraid.

It's why I called him, Kevin.

I mean, Kevin is the guy who eats everyone else's lunches in the breakroom, always late for meetings and has an unrelenting hatred for America.

*gah*

Kevin.

But if he knows that his supporters will vote for him regardless why would he care how he looks?

Even if he does nothing wouldn't you still vote for him?

That depends on what he says tomorrow and what happens after that.

I really wish you'd make up your mind. When Trump retaliates, you say he's a warmonger. If Trump does anything to avoid conflict, you say he is weak. Exactly what is it you want him to do?
