Thank you for providing this. I had been hearing about the latest nonsense.

As someone recently summarized---and I concur 100%: "Iran proxy militias fired rockets into American bases and assaulted the US Embassy in Iraq. US responded with defensive forces and precision air strike on Iranian terrorist leaders responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people and planning more. Sounds like appropriate and measured response."

I trust the president's decision making. Why were the Iranians attacking our embassy in Iraq? Why was Soleimani in Iraq with that group? I doubt it was for tea and cookies. Iran has escalated the situation and they have be given a pass for many horrible attacks. Solemani has killed hundreds to thousands of Americans with IEDs and in other attacks. He was still a very active threat that couldn't be ignored and maybe the world needed to see that. "America, the big dog has teeth and can bite when provoked." I don't like violence but self defense and protecting Americans in embassies is our job. Trump told them all this would happen.

“Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate. He's weak and he's ineffective. So the only way he figures that he's going to get reelected — and as sure as you're sitting there — is to start a war with Iran...”

Thus declared our now-impeached president speaking about President Obama on November 16, 2011.

U.S. military intervention in the middle east & its endlessly hopeless Afghani adventure has been of no benefit to the American people, & indeed to the contrary has been disastrously cruel for her many sons & daughters uselessly killed and injured.

And Trump's stunning 2016 victory came not least due his saying that during the campaign.

That he's succumbed to the deep state apparat & its potent neocon factions (the WSJ among them), alas will lead to his defeat this year to the nutball Dems in consequence.

More than just Sad.
