    [Breaking News] US base in Iraq struck by Iranian and Iraqi militia missiles.

    Iran's state news has reported Iran has retaliated against US for killing general Soleimani by firing a number of missiles at the US airbase of Al-Asad in Iraq.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...ts-retaliation

    A video was shown by Iran state news showing what appears to be either ballistic missiles or cruise missiles being fired into the night sky. (It is about 4 am in Iran)

    Al-Jazeera has also just reported it in their breaking news.

    Sure glad we had all those talking heads tell us that assassination would deescalate the situation and Iran would be too scared to retaliate.

    We are not going to go to War with Iran.

    Giving countries black eyes and broken arms is not war.

    If the 2003 Iraq invasion is any evidence of what will come of this. Many Iranian civilians will die.

    It's arguable that most of the US didn't want a part of this either. >_<

    Not sure if that's true. There's still a large number of Democrats who are warhawks. I guess we'll see, but unfortunately I think Trump's approval rating and chance of winning 2020 go up a lot of there's a war on.

    I would say that under normal circumstances and with a normal president, the american could possibly be swayed. But the upside of this potential horrible situation is that only the Trumpish cabal will side with him.

    He has done a great job at one thing: establishing a precedence of being an awful president who no one wants to be to.

    Nothing he said was incorrect.

    Still not going to war. Eventually we will give enough of a black eye/broken arm that they can't retaliate. That doesn't mean all out war.

    That's basically just arguing semantics at that point.

    Uh... Iran has just issued threats to the UAE that if the jets that just launched from there attack targets in Iran they will start attacking the UAE.
