After Iran shot down our drone from international airspace, none of our allies would have questioned a strike in response. But President Trump’s decision to hold fire spared the lives of around 150 people. Can the left stop its talk about a “madman with his finger on the button” now? What President Trump has done here is humanize the enemy and show them compassion.
Working and rubbing shoulders with members of the Iranian Diaspora through the years, I’ve always met lovely people who are proud of their rich and ancient heritage, even as they are grieved by the damage Shia extremist rulers have done to their culture. I pray that the true “madmen with their finger on the button” in Tehran will never acquire nuclear weapons. Many good people would suffer in that event.
