The Orange Buffoon has lost control of the situation and has set us on a course to war with Iran because he wanted to look tougher than Obama during Benghazi.
“In the tense hours following the American killing of a top Iranian military commander, the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made a rare appearance at a meeting of the government’s National Security Council to lay down the parameters for any retaliation. It must be a direct and proportional attack on American interests, he said, openly carried out by Iranian forces themselves, three Iranians familiar with the meeting said Monday.
It was a startling departure for the Iranian leadership. Since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979, Tehran had almost always cloaked its attacks behind the actions of proxies it had cultivated around the region. But in the fury generated by the killing of the military commander, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, a close ally and personal friend of the supreme leader, the ayatollah was willing to cast aside those traditional cautions.
The nation’s anger over the commander’s death was on vivid display Monday, as millions of Iranians poured into the streets of Tehran for a funeral procession and Mr. Khamenei wept openly over the coffin. …”
Any direct response by Iran that is proportional to the magnitude of assassinating Soleimani like assassinating a high ranking general or launching a bunch of missiles and killing American troops on a ship or on a base in the Middle East will bring on a full scale war. Once the war starts, it will spiral and there is no turning back from the shitshow.
