US will pay dearly for this folly. Killing a government official OPENLY (Not in a war theatre) and admitting to it, is the most foolish thing that has been done since world warII.

What Trump had effectively done by Killing Soleimani is that he has established that in this war of attrition between nations killing foreign diplomats is a fair game.

I repeat, going after a diplomat and killing him publicly is a no-no and I believe the US will regret this action, and this may hurt trumps chance of reelection. Iran is no pushover!!

TruthSpeaker:


Your are the one that is failing to understand that USA under president Trump doesn’t give a damn about traditional foreign policies. He does what he likes and often goes with complete impunity. Didn’t North Korea president speculated about a Christmas gift to USA, did it ever get delivered? Wasn't it the same Saudi Arabia than Iran attacked their oil facilities a few months back?
A solid harm was done to Iran, and their much announced solid revenge has been to drop locally made rockets to sites that were not occupied by Americans. USA denying their foreign minister an entry visa to USA, there by preventing him from physically attending the UN meeting is also a rude way of telling them they ain’t nothing but shit.
What will it cost them (USA) to win it, or so far what have they lost (not even a soldier, whereas Iran lost their supreme General). As at now Iraq is the only country on the verge of sending US troop back home (but the consequences seems to be more than they can chew). What dimension has the famous retaliation caused? So far we have only been told the casualties were Iraqis, not Americans.
You are correct, Trump is very erratic in his decisions but since he represents the greatest country in the world (USA) he often does it will complete impunity. Well he (Trump) claimed the dude that was crushed with fire from above was planning multiple terrorist attacks. Trump ordered for the ”Mother of All Bombs” to be dropped in Afghanistan in 2017, what happed thereafter? Nothing whatsoever.

Ignorance is BLISS!
Did you say "locally made ROCKETS'?
You seem to know more than the American Generals that said Iran fired Guided Missiles from Iran into TWO of their bases?
I am sure you are not even aware that the Pentagon said "they were forwarned that they will be firing Missiles at so-so time and they did at that time?
I am sure you are not aware that Alarms weres ounded and all American troops in those bases headed for their underground bunker, to avoid the incoming missiles?

Now, what l was expecting people to be discussing is WHY did Iran inform their enemy of the time they would be firing the Missiles?
It is because Iran is not really interested in escalating this war, just yet but it wanted the Americans to be aware of their capability that they can fire precisely guided Missles, from Iran, into any target they so decide, something the Americans have been saying they can do or do not have the technology.
Their downing of the American Drone was also to let them know that they have the technology to identify and destroy "Stealth technology" of the Americans.

Like one of the American Generals said: The message from iran is in three fold:
1) To the Iraqis and other nations that may wish to collaborate with the Americans against the iranians
2) To their citizens that they are capable to defnd them
3) To the Americans, that they can hit them, if they so decide.

It is a good thing seeing the Iranians taking the "higher moral ground" and l am sure the Allies of America and other nations are taking Note.
But the real winner for Iran is that they have restarted their Nuclear program IN FULL, to develop Nuclear Weapons capability!
That is what America has lost under Trump. Under Obama, the Iranians were still curtailed to some level.

Israel is not smiling right now.
You seem to know more, it wants to be the only country with Nuclear capability so it can continue to harrass the other nations of the Middle East. undecided

And do you know that 22 of the 27 people involved in the bombing of the WTC on 9/11 were Saudi Citizens? Saudi Arabia is a state sponsor of terrorism, even more than nay other country in the Middle East
Do you know that this same Saudi Arabia is destroying Yemen, so it can have an Oil terminal at their Northern Port city?
Or is it not the same Saudi Arabia Crwon Prince that killed Jamal Kashogi in their Turkish embassy and had his body sawed into peices?

Dont even mention the US because thos eones have been killing the officials of other nations since God knows when.

Both Iran and US have blood on their hands, that is a FACT!

Iran said Trump didn't have congressional approval before killing their man. I really hope Iran had congressional approval before attacking a US facility with rockets.

Trump would rain bombs on whoever gave them approval and the surviving Iranians would get the memo.

I expect Trump to react within the next 24 hours. He had promised to hit Iran so hard and fast should they retaliate. But that will be very foolish of him. Americans have more to lose if this crisis escalates beyond this.

Since there's no casualty, no American life was lost, I expect Trump not to strike back and de escalate this conflict. It's going to do the world a whole lot of good and Americans importantly.

NB: Putin might have just saved us from WWIII
All American allies are pissed with Trump because he didn't notify them before attacking Soleimani, China are now tactically backing Russian, and Russia is Iran's biggest ally.

It's a win win for Iran IMO
How most of you come to your conclusions is funny.

Which of the American allies are are pissed when France and UK are in support, including NATO?

Why will Russia and China waste resources on a war that doesn't concern them but might benefit them economically?

Which big nation has time to fight another because of a smaller one?

Most of you should stop commenting on issues that are beyond your comprehension.

mysticwarrior:
and you think the Iranians would be so stupid to lunch missiles to an empty US military base?

They may even be top US military officers in that base but the US would never disclose it, up till now they are still making acessment and people like you still believe it?

They will only admit they have casualties if they are willing to continue fight, but if they are not interested in the war, they will not admit to save face.

The most important is that whether the base was empty or not it's a slap on the US. Because any attack on US military facilities from any country it's a declaration of war. That's the rule of engagement.

Many people were making mouth that Iran will not retaliate, in the end Iran attacked with 22 ballistic missiles. That's commendable

Getting a memo doesn't change facts that Iran has lived up to its promise. You think all people on earth are like your religiously effeminated dumb Naija citizenry? Go and watch 300 Spartans and get my point. There are people on earth who will gladly die fighting for a cause. And by the end of this battle, it will dawn on your face that even a God-King can bleed. A lion is so powerful but can be taught the lesson of its life by small ants.

Just check on CNN now, not even one Tsetse fly lost its life in the attack. Iran are joking with fire ..

US will not openly agree that they have casualties especially when they don't want the war to go further.

Whether somebody die in the attack or not it's a slap on the US. Iran has proofed many people wrong.
22 missiles attack is not joke. It's disgrace on America
According to US rule of engagement any attack on their military facilities or personnel is a declaration of war. Let's wait and see their response.
