Trump has succeeded in ways with Iran where his predecessors have failed.
People on the left freaked out for three days, claiming that Trump was starting a new war with Iran, but that’s not what happened.
After a sad show of aggression with rockets, Iran eventually backed off and Trump made it clear that he does not want to start another war.
How did Trump pull this off?
Jack Carr is a former Navy SEAL and he offered a few thoughts in a column at FOX News:
Ex-Navy SEAL Jack Carr: Trump got Iran to stand down because of THIS
Over the past week, the American people have been told that our president’s actions in Iraq towards Iran were pushing us into another war in the Middle East.
The House of Representatives even approved a largely symbolic measure Thursday night to limit the president’s authority as commander-in-chief.
Hashtags for “World War III” and “draft” started trending online as millennials worried about conscription, prompting the New York Times to write an article on the subject.
Time magazine even published a guide to help parents ease their children’s fears regarding the situation.
Somewhere in the hysteria are lessons for both sides, lessons memorialized over two-thousand years ago during the Warring States period in ancient China…
President Trump is not the type of American politician to which Iran’s leaders had become accustomed over the past 40 years. This president actually did what he said he would do. U.S. policy vis-à-vis Iraq, Iran and the greater Middle East changed with the new administration.
The bottom line is that Trump didn’t just talk about having a red line.
He took action to back up his words.
That made all the difference.
