Baghdad Embassy attack.

You are going to hear that an American embassy was successfully attacked by Islamic militants under President Trump’s watch.   That is partially true.  It’s true that the Baghdad Embassy was attacked.  But without human losses on the American side.

As for “widespread damage, smoke and fire”; “Smoke was still seen rising from a reception room in the embassy and an embassy checkpoint was left in complete ruins from the conflagration.”

In other words, they were stopped at the front door.  It wasn’t even a hundredth of a “Benghazi”.

For this attack President Trump will exact a ‘proportional’ and measured response.

From Iran, from whom this attack was directed.  The response will hurt.  It will be something they will miss when it’s gone.  But they will not get the war they need to divert their own populace from their anger with their own government.

I truly believe that the American Democrats implored the Iranians to “Do something” to give them an issue they can run on for next November.  And since it would serve the Mullahs well to divert the unhappiness with the Iranian government, they agreed.

They may come to regret that decision.

Miss me yet? I had all these assholes under control.
