The present news report suggests otherwise because it claims Trump asked them to stop short of igniting "World War 3", which is a way of saying they should avoid major escalation and/or overt war.The hammer is about to come down on Iran. US will probably bomb Iran nuclear facilities, They've been working on high tech bunker buster bombs for just such a situation. Will be interesting times.
Indeed Iran is safe from such overt aggression thanks to its deterrence power (tens of thousands of ballistic missiles on mobile launchers as well as in tens of huge hardened underground facilities built underneath mountains + network of loyal, armed ideological allies accross the region + ability to seriously interdict global energy supplies).
Pretty much what I've been saying. The equation can only be altered by complete regime collapse, not by any of the successive US presidents no matter their rhetoric or actions.The same deep-state will remain in power it is always been the same. New face but same policy.
Haven't you noticed all presidents post Bush followed his policy and the same will occur again. Biden already said he won't lift china's tariffs immediately
