You guys still believe Iran attacked US bases when not one American or Iraqi was even wounded? Yeah right they let the Iraqi Prime Minister know 2 hours before. Likely the Americans even sooner. This lying cheating deceiving murderous regime of islamic republic is well known after four decades of similar actions.

Not sure what you mean, the Iranians are not denying that they launched the ballistic missile attack.

The reason they gave warning to avoid casualties is that they don't want to escalate right now because they are worried about losing support in Europe.

America has done the same thing. Trump warned  the Russians of the cruise missile attack in Syria in the exact same way.

This missile attack was a warning shot across the bow, they were demonstrating that they have the ability to strike if they choose to.

IMO the long-term effect of the first 3 years of Trump's Presidency is that the US didn't get involved in any major wars in the ME, islamic state is toast and it's leaders are dead, Suleimani is dead, and the people at "the top" of the terrorist groups across the middle east are a lot less bold.

When the Dems eventually get back in the WH, probably 2024, the fact that they don't support attacks on terrorist leaders will embolden the bad guys to come out of their holes.

If you asked any average American who Soleimani was until a few months ago they wouldn’t have a clue.... 

it would be interesting to see what the long term strategy is to defeat ISIS. That’s for all the parties concerned. Their cells are well active across the middle east.

The average American soldier knows who this guy is, with all the military grade tech and supplies he has been bringing into Iraq and Afghanistan, they know...like detailed plans and supplies on how to make copper lined shaped charges, that blew holes in both sides of thick  armored plating and suck everything out of the veh from the other side...  A regular humanitarian he was.
