The news is out: [President Trump’s speech Wednesday in response to Iran’s retaliatory strike on US bases in Iraq suggested he was hoping to avoid a full-fledged war, but questions remain about his strategy going forward, military and policy experts said.
Trump confirmed in his remarks that Iran’s missile strike, launched days after the US killed a top Iranian general in Iraq, did not kill any American military personnel on the targeted Iraqi bases.
He also said the US will impose “impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime” which “remain until Iran changes its behavior,” and that Iran’s “pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.”]
Trump is clueless; and anyone who cannot see that is stupid.
