But Carter is no longer POTUSIran has just made a tragic mistake. When Iranian proxies directly attacked the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday, it sent shockwaves across the entire planet. Of course it immediately reminded many of us of the Iranian hostage crisis, and that episode turned out great for the Iranians. In November 1979, a group of Iranian militants stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran, and they took 52 American citizens hostage. For the next 444 days, the United States was absolutely humiliated by the Iranians. President Jimmy Carter looked like a pathetic weakling in the eyes of the rest of the world, and his inability to get the hostages back helped to pave the way for the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980.
Yeah, when Iran protests that they had nothing to do with the embassy attacks, Trump can say, "So you claim it wasn't General Suliemani at Baghdad airport?": https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/ ... e-targetedBut anyone that knows Trump understands that he never backs down.
Throughout his life, he has had a personal rule that when someone hits him, he hits back even harder.
And even though Iran is attempting to claim that they had nothing to do with the embassy attack, everyone knows that their proxies never do anything like this without permission from Tehran, and President Trump is promising that the Iranians “will be held fully responsible”…
This is going to get real very fast!
