It’s been a tense week between the United States and Iran. The scuffle started when Iranian-backed militias fired rockets at US facilities in Iraq.
The Trump Administration fired back by bombing the top militia locations as well as killing Iranian terrorist and military leader Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike.
Soleimani was responsible for killing hundreds of military servicemen and women over the years. He was also responsible for killing many Iranian citizens.
The Iranian Regime vowed revenge and fired retaliatory missile strikes on US facilities on Tuesday.
President Trump addressed the nation Wednesday morning saying, “Iran appears to be standing down” and confirmed that the damage was minimal to US assets with no casualties to American military or civilian personnel.
“The American people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime.”
Watch the full address here:
There’s even some anti-Trumpers admitting, so far, President Trump is handling the situation very well.
Here’s a tweet:
I’m far from a Trump supporter.
But impossible not to call Iran outcome a win for US president and a big opportunity going forward.
