This dude Trumplestiltskin looking like a proper buffoon on the Iran situation.
By calling off retaliatory strikes?
Nothing about this comes off as anything other than him having no *censored*ing clue what he's doing.
You really can't flip flop on whether you want to start a goddamn war or not. Especially when our relations with Saudi Arabia and Russia are such blatant public knowledge these days, and the entire situation is marred in controversy. Everything he's doing (or not doing) reeks of war games. He was ready to attack Iran. Russia literally tells him not to. And now he says it wouldn't be a good idea? Mmmmkay then.
I'm glad we aren't attacking Iran (yet). But, you'd have to be pretty naive to think that there's actually some benevolent reasoning for the attack being called off. The timing on absolutely every aspect of this Iran situation has been shady at best. All it feels like is an administration that can't decide whether a war will help them or harm them in the next election.
And don't get me started on the timing of the Saudi arms deal being blocked by the senate. Gee...I wonder if that could have anything to do with him magically not wanting a war with Iran anymore...hmmm. You decide that retaliatory action is not the answer, as soon as you no longer stand to make a bunch of money off retaliatory action?
