Before you make assuptions like you all are remember that It is not just iran that uses the persian gulf for traffic. Many other gulf countries that are friendly to the US who have gotten their ships bombed. Much of europes and aisas oil comes from there. Primarily from the kuait, UAB, saudis, and oman. The Suez Canal the 2nd most important shipping lane in the world is under threat if Iran proceeds to close the persian gulf for shipping.

Iran reportedly shot down the U.S. drone on 20 June , 2019. Rival contentions between the US and Iran have surfaced between the two countries as regards whether the downing of the drone took place when the drone was in Iranian territory or in the international airspace of the Strait of Hormuz. Whatever the truth , the news reports say that US President Donald Trump withdrew the retaliatory strike action on Iran before it could be executed. That is obviously a step in the right direction because likelihood of a major military hostility , which could have even led to… Read more »

No power should have nuclear weapons. Maybe I'm just crazy. All countries should be helping each other live happy and healthy lives. Its 2019 and we still have people in this world living like we were hundreds of years ago. We as humans should be progessing more towards humanity and less on war and technology.

When trump says obliteration he means nuking Iran. People need to wake up to that. Trump is a liar and a con man. He has surrounded himself with neocons pompeo pence Bolton and Abram and who believes him when he says he doesn't want war with Iran? Maximum pressure breeds war so if you don't war then stop intimidating and pressuring others

TRUMP MADE THE CORRECT DECISION – WAR CAUSES TOO MUCH DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION – TOO MANY INNOCENT LIVES DESTROYED – GOVERNMENTS ARE PROTECTED – ITS THE PEOPLE WHO SUFFER AND THE TROOPS – TOO MANY FAMILIES SUFFER

🔥🤪 In the card game of poker, a bluff is a bet or raise made with a hand which is not thought to be the best hand. To bluff is to make such a bet. The objective of a bluff is to induce a fold by at least one opponent who holds a better hand. The size and frequency of a bluff determines its profitability to the bluffer.

Here we go with another military venture in the Mideast. Now we've got another WMDs in …………. Fill in the blank.

Do a search for Plan For A New American Century (PNAC Doctrine) and you will see how the U.S. has a plot for a large scale invasion of Iraq, Syria, and now Iran.

fake news. Iran shot down drone over its territory. Iran got the scrap to prove it and that's why he called off the open war invitation.. I Wonder which countries (China, Russia or Iran's own) technology was used to shot down drone?

Good decision by Trump. But no matter what decision he makes the left wing media will criticize him for it. Remember how he got criticized by the left-wing media for launching the missile strike against Syria? Now the likes of CNN &MSNBC etc is criticizing him for not launching a strike. No matter what he does it’s wrong in the eyes of the leftist media members.
