Am i the only one who thought Trump would launch Nukes at Iran in response to their missile barrage at US bases in Iraq?

disproportionate response indeed.
plus sidesteps getting Congress's for permission to goto War.

I think he would try. I remember there was a meeting when Trump asked 3 times "we have nukes, why can't we use them"

I suspect 1 high ranking General would stop it.

Yeh, OP, you're pretty much alone. But, then again, I never dreamed we'd be so stupid as to make Trump President in the first place.

You are the first one i've seen that thought he would do something like that. Isn't this the President that didn't launch a missile attack on the airbase that shot down one of our drones because it would be too "disproportionate" and take lives ? Why yes, yes it is.

He did this because it's an election year. Plus, pictures of his dead pedophile friend were released.

He needed a distraction and a 'win'.

well you can't be stupid if you have to file for bankruptcy half a dozen times, including casinos, now can you. /s
Donald Trump has never once filed for bankruptcy.

But keep telling yourself things in areas of business that you have zero knowledge in clearly. Bankruptcy isn't a failure statistic. Hell, even Snopes - a left leaning website will enlighten you on this one: https://www.snopes.com/news/2016/08/01/donald-trumps-bankruptcies/

Hell if you're talking about 4 or 6 companies out of hundreds, you're talking an overall very low failure rate.

Donald Trump made money bankrupting his casinos, screwing over everybody else involved. He's utter scum.

This.

Regardless of him being a sociopath, he didn't become a billionaire by being mentally retarded. His IQ is at least at average regardless of what you want to tell yourself.
I'd agree with this. I also believe the average person is pretty dumb, and certainly not qualified to manage a country.

From your link

It’s an oft-cited statistic that Donald Trump “has” 515 companies, but a number of those businesses are only connected to him in tangential ways (e.g., through licensing agreements) and aren’t owned or directly controlled by him.
I think a better way to look at the subject are Trump businesses run in a way that inspires you or are they run in a way where you’d be tossed aside?

Didn't side step anything. Killed a know internationally recognized terrorist. Iran loses their #3 guy and all they can do is shoot some missiles and kill more of their own people.

An imminent threat is required for POTUS to launch this kind of action. No imminent threat has been shown. In fact, the story as to why seems to change hourly.

Trump claims Iran was going to bomb an embassy. Multiple people have emerged from the classified briefing and said this is not true.

Still believe Trump, eh?

I'm not surprised he seems at least average to you.

What makes you think he is one?

Just because someone has a million dollar loan doesn't mean they're a millionaire.

Let me guess you wish they would have done more, such as attack one of our aircraft carriers??
I would bet you dollars to donuts that Iran could if the wanted to or felt they were truly backed into a corner do alot of damage to a carrier if they so chose.......
Asking somebody if they feel bad over the killing of somebody they never knew makes no sense at all....millions of people die everyday throughout the world that we will never know, Do we feel bad....eh...Do we feel good ....eh!!
It is not like he was a family who you truly loved...or was he in your case??
