On Tuesday evening, Iran shot off a bunch of rockets toward Iraq. Oddly enough, for a country with an advanced guidance system available to it, the projectiles really didn’t hit anything. And they really didn’t do any damage to American assets in the area despite early reports.
In fact, it was sort of a waste of ammunition.
But, that didn’t stop the mainstream media and any number of online prognosticators from all but claiming President Donald Trump tried to start World War III with the killing of Iran’s most notorious butcher.
Nothing could be further from the truth and in an address to the nation on Wednesday morning from the White House, the President made that very clear.
I’m pleased to inform you: The American people should be extremely grateful and happy no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.
Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.
The door is now open for a new Iran deal, one that can make the Persian people prosperous again, just like they were before the mullahs took over.
This news is being reported and broadcast all over the internet, but what is not being repeated nearly as often, and needs to be, is the bombshell the president dropped about how the Iranians have the money for all that hardware, to begin with.
President Trump took direct aim at former President Barack Obama on Wednesday, blaming the last administration for giving Iran money that he claimed was then used by Tehran to pay for missiles that were aimed at U.S. troops in Iraq.
“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” Trump said from the White House, referring to settlement money the U.S. paid to Iran in 2016.
And that little tidbit should open the door for a whole lot of questions about the previous administration and their motivations.
