It's a political 'blame game'...and those "controlling the narrative" see a new war with Iran, not so much in terms of casualties on either side...but as a political means to a political end of taking out Trump IN 2020.
I find it odd though, if it's addressing the political blame game, why did your OP literally start with it, with an untrue claim at that.
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.
But I suppose it's moot. Look at the flags. So people took it, even though many of us knew it was simply not true.
I was in the threads discussing those topics, I didn't see any lefties complaining that he didn't do the strike. In fact, I've only seen those that self identify with the right say he should have done it.
So, apparently we are talking about 1 poster..
We are in the twillight zone, this thread belongs in the dumpster.

You’re working under the assumption that the leftists here in this thread are being honest.
I wonder though, how many just posted to “prove” the OP wrong?

Perhaps trump is pulling out the famous "bonespurs" strategy. It's worked well for him in the past.
or, as I still maintain; trump got a call from his bro Putin and bent over.

Im confused, is he a dip# or not, seems to me if he was a dip# he would have just went along with whatever everyone else recommended he do, which was strike the targets............
really wish some of you would make up your minds.........
I'm not surprised that you're confused.
Dipsh1t made one good decision. That doesn't negate the countless other things that make him a dipsh1t.
His word is as solid as diarrhea, and it smells about the same.

I wonder what chances trump would have for reelection if he was at the helm for a war with iran?
my favorite theory so far: There was never a counter strike that was waiting to happen. The entire episode was created to produce a hero's response in these times of lagging approval.
Once he is ordained again in 2020, interesting times will be at hand.

I'm beginning to believe that ATS has been hijacked by entities that want to spew propaganda. I'm pretty sure these people would call me a leftist, and I can assure them that my take on things is that Trump will commit war crimes if he attacks Iran. Iran has done nothing. It is America that wants war at any cost. Period. I do not support offensive war against other nations. Our military should be used defensively only. Yet it is always uses offensively these days. You know, first strike. Yes, I get it. We create a red flag incident then claim we have to save the world. Blah, blah, blah. But that is aggression based on lies, a bully stance. And a war crime.

This upsets me because even though I am more right wing, being anti war was one of the things I respected and agreed with the left
So to me it’s worth pointing out how the people with power on the left have become pro war in most instances
