President Trump said Iran appears to be refraining from additional strikes against U.S. targets, calling it a “good thing” for both nations and the world.
“Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned,” Trump said in an address from the Grand Foyer in the White House.
“The American people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed” in the attacks, Trump said.
Iran on Wednesday fired missiles at airbases jointly used by the U.S. and Iraq in retaliation for the killing of General Qassem Soleimani, roiling financial markets and disrupting air traffic but causing no casualties. Trump said Iran appears to be refraining from additional attacks.
With no Americans killed, expectations of an immediate escalation in the oil-exporting region appeared to recede. Though retribution had been expected for the deadly drone strike, Iraq said it had received verbal notice from the Iranians prior to the strikes. A U.S. official said the Iranians were likely aiming to miss.
Airlines changed routes to avoid the conflict zone, and the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority restricted flights over the Persian Gulf.

The two LDSh*th€€£s Sen Mike Lee & Mitt Rummy are signaling they will vote for impeachment. Lee just said Trump has gone rogue and leading USA down a path of undeclared war. I heard nothing to indicate that? I fact it looks like more of do nothing bs we’ve seen for several months. Iran has a clear pathway to Nukes. Exactomundo the way Pakistan, India & NoKo Nukes. All I heard was a campaign speech no strategy about what happens if Iran kills a auto test dummy? If Gangstas did a drive by shooting and missed they would see at least a few gun felony charges. I wasn’t aware you can shoot a dozen missiles at another country and everyone yawns?

Biblically, Ishmael was never cursed but blessed, but these devil terrorist are hell bent on killing infidels as they call us! I applaud President Trump who has the backbone to deal with the times we live in. It was pass due time to clean up our own backyard; and in doing so, he is draining the America swamp creatures in the deep state both the democratic as well as the rinos in the Republican parties. America first! If we apply the oxygen mask to other nations first without applying the mask to our face first - we can’t be the Good Samaritan that God has ordain us to be. Prayers up for President Trump, his family and the entire cabinet members and especially our military guys and gals and those left behind to hold the home fronts together while their loves ones defend our honor. God Bless America!

I knew Americans wouldn't dare to face a nation who can defend itself and would invariably back off! The 20 years quagmire been literally spanked by Taliban Goat Herders transformed America into a hit and run coward!
AcidBot66 Month ago
@Pat Murphy "Americans would mind seeing that no lives were lost" Let me clarify your vision about Iranian strategy even I can clearly see: 1- Fire some missiles intentionally off target to make Americans believe tensions have gone down. 2- Tell the Iranian people the assassins have been hit and the Iranian regime is stronger than the aggressors 3- Organize all the militias sympathetic to the Iranians and hit the assassins hard with a blow that will make Americans desire they have never been born. I would recommend all Americans to build an underground bunker and stay there for some years, just in case!
AcidBot66 Month ago
@Pat Murphy "If we look weak to some after this," Look? Give me a break! 20 years been spanked by Tribal Goat Herders armed with little more than rusted AK47s in a conflict with no end in sight is a little more than just an appearance of weakness, it is literally weakness!

Ali G so did your media lie about the plane that was shot down? Looks like Iranian and other Islamic media told lies.
Ali G yes in USA we know our media lies to us. Your media lies to you as well if you don’t think they are willing to lie to you then you will be deceived by whatever they say and believe whatever they want you to believe

​@Justanothervoice123 It's confirmed that dozens of missiles hit their targets and only 4 of them missed, the missle/air defense systems utterly failed to intercept them, just like the ones in Saudi oil fields that was attacked. Yeah so much for preparedness, get off your high horses. This just shows how vunerable US bases are in the region to Iranian missle attacks.

@Justanothervoice123 Our media does not tell lie but Trump and press in America tell lie to their people.
Ali G Iran gave advanced warnings, military was on high alert and prepared for this attack, most missiles didn’t even reach targets I understand were your coming from but it’s highly unlikely that’s the case . Who told you that?
Wolfgang Von Zubaz
He ran on an anti-war platform even though the media wasn't paying attention, or spun it the opposite way. He hasn't started any wars, and he won't. Which can't be said of the previous two presidents. Hell, Obama destroyed Libya ... for what I still don't know

@Adam Karelius , And Trump's saber rattling appears to have resulted in the downing of the Ukrainian airliner near Tehran, killing 167 Ukrainians and Canadians. Maybe electing a reality TV host who dodged the draft was a bad idea.

@SeaTato The US Government kept 911 a secret and that was over 5000 dead and with hundreds of eyewitnesses that never witnessed a plane hit the buildings and also people got video of a large light gray colored military plane circling the area when the building were detonated then building number 7 was detonated and video of white flashes can be seen through the windows as the explosives went off identical to what was reported at the twin towers

@Ali G That's probably true and more commercial Airliners will be attacked and Trump will say it was not done by the Iranians and its now under investigation. Trump is not a good liar
Bob Steenson
Bob Steenson Month ago
15 missiles strike small US Military bases and there are no injuries ??? The news coming out of that region states that there was 80 American's killed in the attack and Trump knows it that's why he's being coy about answering the question and stating that it's now being investigated Whenever the US Government uses the words:" now being investigated " that means they don't want to admit to the truth -- just like all the Commercial Airliners that are now going to be blown up by the Iranians -- the US Government ran media will state that all these plane crashes are NOT A retaliation by the IRANIANS and these crashes are now being investigated
