The ball is in the orange brain's court

Remember this from a day or two ago

"These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back,& perhaps in a disproportionate manner," the president tweeted. "Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!"

Our blowhard "president" is on record (twitter is the official communication medium of the Trump administration dontcha know) as vowing a "full" retaliatory strike against Iran on a night like this. 

What will happen? Iran has said that if the US does not strike back it is over (for now).  

Ball is in the orange brain tonight.

It looks like Iran may have painted Trump into a corner just like that. 

After a limited number of missiles sent to American bases in Iraq, Iran's government has said the battle is over, as long as the US does not hit them back as a reprisal for tonight's missile attacks. 

This leaves Trump holding his ---- in his fat little hand. 

Iran got it's revenge, and de-escalation is evidently there for the taking.

But can Trump call this result MAGA? 

Sean Hannity wants us to incinerate Iran's oil fields.

Seriously John?????  You really need to take a break - like until Trump's second term in office is over.  The hate and vitriol are really getting monotonous.

Just think of all this happening over just the course of a few days.  Just like that we are headed for a possible war with Iran. For what? 

Trump sees something on television and he constructs a "policy" . A day or two later he sees something else and goes off in another direction. His strategy is based on his own whims and what conforms to his beliefs about what is right.  But he doesnt have the intelligence, understanding , education or interest in these topics to make correct decisions.  He talks about wiping countries off the face of the earth. You know who talks like that? Dumbasses on internet forums.

Maybe Trump will claim that the missiles didnt attack Americans , since they landed in Iraq.

I especially like the Iranian comments that if the US had just killed Soleimani and denied involvement, \

then they would not have had to retaliate tonight.

But since Trump bragged about it and doubled down on it this forced their hand to demonstrate their ballistic missiles

most of which hit the perimeters of the 2 targets as they say they planned...

We shall see what the morning light brings and if the President's red line is still there or not.

Sorry, they attacked US personnel again. I don't care in what country, on whose base, under what absurd Iranian reasoning.

Whether the TDDDDS faction likes it or not we have to respond. If this was fucking Obama the left would be accusing the right of being traitors for even questioning motives, reasoning, or better still siding with fucking Iran!
