The question is, is it possible to engage in a toy for that with Iran, (for it would seem that strikes on Iranian proxies would not be sufficient), without escalation to full warfare? I hope that are defense intelligence community knows the answer. I expect that the presidents great fear is of the economic effect of a Mic larger Iranian attack on saudi oil supplies. Some action may be necessary, but is it possible without causing escalation?

They will continue to swat at the sleeping bear until we have no choice but to react. And the reaction will not be pretty when it finally comes.
Are you sure about that? The US has been pretty good at weak responses.

Pompeo says he wants ‘peaceful resolution’ in wake of Saudi oil attacks


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to Iran’s threat of “all-out war” by insisting the US wants a “peaceful resolution” to mounting tensions over airstrikes on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, according to reports Thursday.

Do we believe Pompey or is it possible that he is engaging in deception? “We want a peaceful resolution”, seems more soft than what Pompey would say he wanted to save US face while avoiding conflict in the region.

So what dose everyone think about Iran already having a nuclear device or two to lob at Sauidi and Israeli capitals/cities. I mean it is in the realm of possibility yes? Maybe that's why the US isn't hasty to a response.

Note they could have bought them say persay from DPRK. Yes? I mean Iran missiles look awful like DPRK's.

Today I saw a train as long as the eye could see loaded with nothing but A1 Abrams Tanks headed in the direction they head when deploying. I looked on youtube and found a video posted of a similar train, so something seems to be happening.

Winter is coming, could be a deployment for storing them. I wouldnt consider this anything major. Although i did read somewhere recently that 4 or 5 national guard units were just activated for deployment so maybe their is something going on. But i think that was related to europe and Poland specifically.

Do you really think the US will strike Iran over this?
