Last night, Iran launched at least a dozen ballistic missiles at military bases in Iraq where U.S. forces are deployed. There have so far been no reports of casualties.
Evidently, the mullahs wanted to do something to retaliate for President Trump’s drone strike that neutralized General Qasem Soleimani. But they were deterred from doing something that would actually harm Americans – presumably by our Commander-in-Chief’s warning of harsh punishment were that to happen.
The temptation will be to think there’s now a basis to “defuse” the present crisis. That would be a serious mistake. The previous week’s events, including Iran’s missile attacks, underscore the reality that its Sharia-supremacists are at war with us. Unless and until they are removed from power, Iran will continue to be a threat to this country, its people, allies and vital interests.
We must proceed accordingly.
