Anyone else find their actions rather suspicious???? Especially the way they backed down so easily?
After shouting death to America, promising untold devastation on our soil, and threatening to assassinate the President...…..and all they end up doing it firing some lower level missiles at empty military bases because they had already told US what they were doing. Several of the missiles were either duds or went off course (I'm guessing one hit the plane) and all of it was like a bunch of amateurs that I would have expected more from North Korea than Iran. I mean even Kim could have done better. And I have no doubt they have bigger, better weaponry than was used.
Iran has been at this for years and well experienced in war & terrorism to what seems to me to bungle it up, then keep bowing & apologizing??? What the hell happened??? These are people that to die defending their ideals is a life goal, so they can have their 72 virgins so it wasn't the fear of US nukes or all out war.
I just think somethings not quite right here......anyone else?
I don't think they are done yet...just getting their ducks in a row.
Don't forget, the two guys that were responsible for all this terror planning were vaporized. It would be like killing Eisenhower and Montgomery a month before D-Day was to start.
Every single one of the next-in-line terror leaders knows that they will have a cross-hair on their head....24/7/365.
They need time to re-evaluate and adjust.

This whole show was to excite their people and keep them thinking the leaders are mighty warriors. The powerful can say whatever they want and the people will believe them because they have no other way of knowing any different. They don't get unfiltered TV or internet so whatever the Iranian leaders tell them is what they believe. The leaders on the other had know if they step too far out of line we will wipe them from the face of the earth (like we did the General who seemed to forget we could do that).
First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
With the two extremely divergent accounts of the damage done by the 15 ?? missiles, . . . it is hard to tell exactly where it all stands.
OTOH, . . . no patriot intercepts were used, . . . which means they did not feel they were enough of a threat to waste that expensive toy knocking it down.
BUT, . . . buildings were demolished, . . . choppers destroyed, . . . runways bombed, . . . and one estimate was that the smallest payload was a 1000 pounder.
THEN, . . . the Ukranian jet that seemed to be downed by one of their anti-aircraft outfits trying to shoot down another American drone.
I guess the only thing we know for sure is the general got all bent out of shape and blew up.
For now, . . . I think most people allow that Iran shot a few missiles to assuage their "fever" and will go back to subterfuge for now.
Just keep your swivel on, . . .
May God bless,

It was not from Iran. Iranian supported militants are in possession of a lot of rockets in Iraq and they will use them to stir the pot and help the democrats unseat Trump in Nov. With China, Iran and probably Russia working against Trump in 2020 he has a tough road ahead,
