GOOD, glad to accomadate you, happy now?
Happy, no. Relieved, yes.
This one thing doesn't absolve him of the other myriad things he has done and continues to do to undermine the US and our longstanding democratic institutions, notwithstanding the fact that his MO is creating a crisis that he then "solves," thereby claiming success.
PS: it's accommodate.
Get your facts straight before you come in on your high horse......
Pulling out of the Nuclear agreement (which was working), imposing sanctions, sending the Navy, and other provocations? Yes.
As far as creating crisis, it's his MO, regarding everything he does (including North Korea, Iran, NAFTA, Mexican and European tariffs, as well as domestic issues, etc). It's what he does to create the illusion of success, and people buy.

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.........

Hay I am just adding as to whats out there:
BUT NOTHING ON THIS FROM IRANS BIG NEWSPAPER.
Iran refrained from targeting US plane with 35 on board flying beside downed drone – commander
The left is sorely disappointed...They knew their news media hacks would have done a Pearl Harbor on President Trump had he attacked Iran...

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.
POTUS said he was told by a General that, at least, 150 Iranian soldiers would be killed @ 3 sites in Iran if he launched the "cocked and loaded" strike.
Trump decided it would be an unproportioned response to the unmanned drone shoot down...as no Americans have died.
Today, Leftists are criticizing him for his cool-headedness and restraint...after telling us, yesterday, that Trump had been just itching to unload a bunch of missiles on Iran.
You know...because he hates Iranians and can't wait to kill them and start a war.
Were I allowed to quote from other threads here, I would be more than happy to provide you many examples of the Leftist hypocrisy regarding this...but, doubtless, you've already read them and are quite familiar.
The Left want to criticize the bad orange man either way..."Islamophobic and reckless warmonger" or "Wimp for wasting all that money putting forces in position and not launching the strike".
All this says to me is that the Left ONLY cares about hating Trump...and has really just sacrificed any of their remaining principles and logic to their own out-of-control Trump derangement.
FTR: I'm very proud of the way our POTUS is handling this. He is a TRUE leader.

You know, I haven't read any threads about Trump and Iran so obviously I don't know what Leftist ATS posts you're referring to and I'm not about to go on a witch hunt cuz I don't care BUT I find it ironic that the Rightists ATS posters in this thread are trashing Democrats, calling them war hungry WHILE completely ignoring the fact the Trump admin is hungry for war (and I'm sure 2020 around the corner has nothing do with it..), filled with war hawks who've been wanting a war with Iran for DECADES while pushing the weakest reasons for said WAR, but the Democrats are the problem..... Trump literally almost started a war and thank god he either got cold feet or a call from Putin because the LAST thing the USA needs is ANOTHER conflict/war in the Middle East. Why is no one constantly bitching about our endless wars? Why? Because you're all too busy constantly bashing and meming Democrats, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC.
Jesus, take off your damn partisan blinders, you guys really do spend the majority of your energy HATING on Leftists. What you don't spend on hate is used for praise of Trump and the rest of the GOP gang but rarely if ever is your energy used to question and critique politicians of your choose party. Democrats shouldn't be your only focus because if you don't question your own chosen leaders and hold them accountable, well then you're all just sheep.

He mentioned how the strike would have been disproportionate. The attacks on the ships needs unilateral consideration, imo.

I'm anti-war too, but without military action I'm not seeing Iran and the rest of the Sharia Law terrorist states ever becoming free of the disease that extremist Islam is.
So how did military intervention work in Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan? How do you kill an ideology?
