In ½ an hour from now, the POTUS will address the nation on the lastest Iran development.

The spin is already in full swing:

Any predictions on what will be said?

ETA:

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump plans to speak on the Iran crisis at 11 a.m. Wednesday, the morning after Iran attacked two military bases in Iraq that house American troops, the White House announced.

There were no casualties in the missile barrage that Iran described as retaliation for last week's U.S. attack that killed a top Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani, according to officials in the U.S. and the region.

Trump has vowed to strike back hard if Iran attacked U.S. troops, but he seemed to take a more conciliatory tone in a social media post late Tuesday.

Word is, no further attacks by the US but the US will retaliate if any Americans are harmed.


So I guess, no war.

Well, now that this might deescalate, Pelosi will probably push for it.

Umm, have you been paying attention over the last 50 or so years. Seems to me we have pretty much been at war the whole time without congressional authorization.

Great, the president who doesn't know what international law means will talk

Let's hope this the end of discussions of war. It's not what we need. I sincerely hope this deescalates and we can get back to the petty business of the House burying themselves in stupidity.

I'm guessing there will be a rebuttal after the president speaks by some leftist.

That should be popcorn worthy.

So now there is an international law against the killing of terrorists?
Did your leaders in Scotland think that one up?

The last time we were in an actual war was WWII. The rest were nothing more the police actions.

Hmm get attacked by missiles at a us base... Not much to say. If he says all is ok, we can just wait for the next Iran attack. This reminds me of the begining of ww2 with the natzis and the brits NEVILE CHAMBERLAIN.

🤷‍♂️ Let’s see what he says..
