Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries. The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said. – New York Times

THE MOST ill-prepared man imaginable sits in the White House.

He has no respect for the history of Persia.

The Iranian people are not on his radar.

He’s a narcissist obsessed with power.

An egomaniacal leader with no imagination for what Iran could unleash in…

Syria,

Libya,

Lebanon,

Iraq,

Yemen,

Afghanistan.

Former admiral James Stravidis called what occurred a “logical albeit highly dangerous escalatory move by Iran.”

Unfolding without a secretary of defense.
