Just as I predicted several days ago, the deep state planned an attack and coerced Trump into it with their expert advice (because we know Trump has no defense minister). NYT knew about it in real time which is consistent. Someone in control is working with NYT directly. Strange times... Trump either knowingly bluffed and called it off or felt the weight of responsibility of it all and couldn't go through with murder. This happens to potential killers a lot. Most people aren't capable of mass murder and can easily be talked down. Its why hostage negotiators exist. The deep state was pissed and told NYT to report it immediately to embarrass Trump for not following through. I have no interest in debating if it was 3-D chess or operational incompetence because I only care about results. The result is that we don't have a war.

The best thing about the Greenwald/Tracey camp is that nothing Trump ever does or doesn’t do is his fault. It’s liberals fault for yelling at him, or the Deep State or MSNBC.

He has no agency at all.

Isn’t this called the bigotry of low expectations?

i think it's believable.

Nixon and his foreign policy people were famous for exploiting the perception that he was unhinged enough to do some seriously crazy shit. Trump is definitely and rightfully perceived as erratic and unhinged enough to do some seriously crazy shit.

I can totally see this being a head fake.

Also, I'm drawing a blank on specific examples, but I'm almost certain that I've heard of strike packages being cancelled after the engines were turning and maybe even jets airborne.

So Trump and the ayatollah are basically exchanging boring insults with each other.

Because I’ve watched “Mean Girls” more times than I’d ever admit IRL, I predict further escalation until some brave referee backs Trump and the crazies in Iran back from the cliff.

Well that’s what I’m hoping.

Why would the Iranians back off if Russia is their ally?

Some kind of direct war is not a very popular idea among Iranians. I think their leadership will look for off-ramps if they are politically tenable (they aren’t gonna completely fold).

^ Anybody who wants to understand what's going on in Yemen and how that ties in with Iran and other regional powers should read this 15-tweet thread by a Yemeni:

In any case, Trumps Iran policy is an incoherent disaster with no planning aside from “not Obama.” He’s a compete idiot and unfortunately he listens to the absurd Cotton wing of the GOP for this.

Maybe instead of war, we can just go back and forth exchanging strikes on oil fields until the price is 800 a barrel.

So why do we care that Iran bombed Saudi Arabia anyway? Our "ally" who recently decapitated a prominent journalist, and a regime that's totally in cahoots with Trump deserves our military protection in exchange for what, exactly?

*Iranian weapons used by Houthi rebels, not Iran. Just like our bombs that are being used to kill children in Yemen. It's just more pretense for war with Iran.

American intelligence is saying it was cruise missiles, not simply drones, something the Houthis don't have.

I mean, it was either the Iranians directly, or it was the Houthis with Iranian support. I just don't give a shit. The Saudi government is a pack of murdering animals, and I'm tired of U.S. troops being pawns for Riyadh. We already sell them the most advanced weapons systems on the planet. If they can't shoot down some half-assed Iranian drone, that's on them.

The only thing that even gets me close to caring which bunch of fanatical assholes comes out on top in this conflict is the notion that an Iranian victory would enhance Russian power and influence. So you know what, if the Revolutionary Guard starts rolling tanks through Iraq to the Saudi border, then we should get involved. If they want to do this petty bombing shit, they can do it on their own. Surely MBS can come up with some sort of retaliation. Hell, Saudis managed to kill 3,000 Americans in a couple of hours without any missiles or jet fighters. Imagine what they can do to Iran with the toys we've sold them.

But maybe we do have to get involved. After all, this whole thing is Trump's fault. If that dipshit hadn't scrapped the nuclear deal, Iran wouldn't be acting nearly so petulant. I mean, all the Yemenis would still be starving to death and Syria would still be a horror show, but you wouldn't have all this shit with oil tankers and drones.
