    Hopefully US doesn't respond. But even if US doesn't respond IRAN will probably continue to escalate, regardless....

    Escalating? Iran fired dozens of ballistic missiles into a sovereign country. From Iran. Those sites will now have to be taken out and the entire Iranian air defense system.

    Doesn't this entire thing seem a bit too convenient to anybody else? Or am I all alone here?

    Always Israel. Well that is all Israel needed to hear to hit Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.

    Well let's not forget that according to Iran Israel is the little Satan and America is the great Satan. It will be interesting to see how the United States will react. I've no doubt that we're going to escalate back but I'm sure that Iran will eventually come to the negotiating table because they know that they can't possibly defeat the United States in an all out war.

    Apparently so far no reports of US casualties. Which means either the Iranian missiles really have terrible guidance systems, or this was a shot across the bow.

    Now the question is what will Iraq do if there are Iraqi casualties? Both missile strikes happened in non Shia areas. One in Sunni (Balad) area and one in Kurdish (Irbil).

    It was a shot across the bow. And that the whole thing occurred in Sunni territory is likely not a coincidence. It's another case of the Shias against the Sunnis so the Shia Iraqi prime minister who spent years in exile in Shia Iran is not likely to retaliate for it.

    No US casualties? Then I think the recommendation is going to be to strike more Hezbollah targets in Syria.

    This all might be an attempt to send the Sunni and Kurd factions of the Iraqi Parliament a message to join the Shia factions backed by Iran to expel US forces and also see if the US escalates.

    Trump’s redline is US lives. No US casualties then I believe he shows restraint and goes for material targets in Syria. Or Israel does it.

    I sure hope so. I don't want this to escalate any more than it already has...
