Amazingly, the Iranians have seized the high moral ground tonight
By deliberately hitting parts of the bases that weren't housing any Americans, the Iranians showed they are able to strike Americans... but that they wouldn't kill any Americans tonight.

They now look like the reasonable party here to neutral observers.


Trump has managed to look worse than a murderous Iranian regime.


Iran has outflanked him in his desire to have a full blown war.

Any strikes by the US now will look weak and desperate.


This "war" will be off the front pages in a couple weeks, and impeachment will be front and center again.

The neocons didn't get the response they wanted... they wanted American deaths so they could escalate. Now they lost that card
.

2. If they did that entirely on purpose, I'd say their missiles are more accurate that many realized

These were apparently some of the new ones that have a longer range. It seems pretty far from a scud.

3. I think that might be spot on.

Their media is exaggerating the attacks to mollify the Iranian people, and they've given Trump an out. If he's capable of doing one smart thing in his 70+ years, he'll put away his ego for five minutes and end this.

They fired a few scuds to say they took revenge.
No lives lost from what the current networks are showing.
We didn't return fire.

Question for lurking DUmmies:

If Iran seized higher moral ground by not killing Americans then why did Iran's media claim that 80 "American terrorists" were killed?

You're too stupid to be allowed on the internet.  With Iranian artillery rockets, they achieved their highest possible standard of accuracy by managing to land any of them at all on a target the size of an airbase.

Any indication as to the rocket/missile type(s)? I.E., unguided or guided. If unguided, Star Moron scheming daemons' comment,

Iran's purpose wanted to please their own citizenry, while not provoking a devastating US military response. That's what they accomplished.

Well, except that they may have shot down an airliner. We'll see.

No kidding.  I heard several of their missiles failed and several more were shot down.

 I sure as hell hope this distraction is over soon and impeachment is front and center again.  Trump's fund raising took a dive with impeachment out of the news.  It's going to be tough for him to reach $200 million by March 1st now.

Exactly correct. Iran now knows Trump will thump them back to the 1st century and he won't lose a minutes sleep while doing it. So they simply pulled a Clinton and lobbed some rockets at nothing, claimed victory and went home knowing they'll be alive tomorrow.
Liberals disgust me. (Now I don't have to remember to put it on each post).

Because only the left goes searching for that which is not there in a desperate attempt to be offended about something.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

I don't see any letup in his donations. This military operation against Soloimani, frankly, has been the single-most effective military operation in the history of the war against Islamic terrorism. The chatter says most of the hardliners within the military are scattering, and more responsible military leadership may be taking their place, at least pragmatically if not formally.

In short, probably the greatest military action for effect since 9/11, on par with the atomic bomb on Japan.

Think it was on Gutfeld's show last night, someone said that if Pearl Harbor happened now, Democrats would blame the U.S./Trump/military industrial complex for having such shiny boats as targets in the Pacific.  Something akin to that.
