He was lucky. He did several things that carried substantial risk of getting us into really sticky wars. It didn't happen.

The guy is an idiot. He did some really stupid shit with respect to Iran in particular. Fortunately for those of you who appear to think he was brilliant, Iran knew that he will pass. They bided their time while moving closer to getting nuclear weapons. What he did with moving the US embassy to Jerusalem was also really stupid.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Oh.

Not sure I'm getting his point SD about no Iranians being killed. The strike was against Iran-backed militias not Iranian militias. They were probably Shias from Syria and maybe Lebanon.
Still trying to wrap my head around this one. Biden killed Iraqis in Syria because they were being supported by Iran?

Anyway, taken from the article.
None of those killed in the attack were Iranian, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a generally credible monitoring group based in London. So many deaths could prompt cries of revenge by the Iraqi militiamen’s comrades or extended families or tribes, possibly imperiling the moderate, pro-western Kadhimi government in Baghdad.

Touche!

I have agreed with good things about AOChe (her schooling the Republicans in reaching younger people for example). Has JSO ever given Trump credit for anything without qualifying it (he got lucky)?

No and that is what I love about unhinged haters of Trump. They believe that Trump woke up every single day scheming on how he could screw America over. Trump even had a better record than Satan. Even Satan would screw up from time to time, but not Trump.

The hand wringing and gnashing of teeth when Trump offed some folks in the ME by those that are doing it now is just delicious. :lol:
