Only the absence of retaliation or some lower-level action that gives both sides a face-saving way out of the predicament can restore deterrence. Otherwise, fight’s on.
Just as we have other options aside from war, it’s worth considering how limited Iran’s appetite for war with the United States actually is.
D.C.’s hysteria is dangerous. The strike wasn’t necessarily wrong, but the president must tread carefully. Too much of D.C. wants him not to.
As vice president, Joe Biden made foreign political decisions that helped terrorist leader Quasem Soleimani form an Iranian-friendly government in Iraq.
“We caught him in the act and terminated him,” Trump said in an address at his Mar-a-Lago resort in south Florida. “His reign of terror is over.”

Last months saw unprecedented protest in Iran against its regime. Last night’s action is a boon to those efforts.

Remaining actively engaged militarily in the Middle East only deepens our strategic failure and extends the forever war that Trump has repeatedly criticized.
The terrorist designation is not official yet. That’s good, because someone needs to hit the pause button on this.
As long as the Pentagon is a sacred cow, the United States will never balance its budget. If our military stops being the world police, it can have all the ships and planes it needs to keep us and the troops safe.
New images are emerging from the week-long blackout that shed light on the severity of the tensions between the Iranian people and their repressive regime.
Following the model of the U.S. House Democrats, the Israeli left is beginning its own circus of invented crimes, selective leaks, and unreliable witnesses to try to take down their political opponent by underhanded means.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Monday that the United States will terminate the waiver program related to the Fordow Facility, effective on December 15, 2019.
