Why don't you attack Dan who claims it wasn't an attack of war? You disagree with him so whats up? Can it be he is a Jew and I am not? @chinagel
Don''t bite the hand that feeds you. ;D
I don't usually get involved in the main arguments, I find them boring. Just your pretzels.

Thankfully, I don't think too many are confused about the difference between war and an act of war. Most people wouldn't call someone drunk because they sipped an oz of beer, which is indeed part of the process of getting drunk. Most people here have been saying these escalations will not become a war, and that seems to be likely.

My point was not the bet at all. My point was that originally you were criticizing Orangutan for being a coward and not responding. Then, for whatever reason, when it was convenient for you, you give him credit for the very same act. And made sure to loudly proclaim the
He is the reason we are not at war and he gets 100% of the credit. If I call him coward, scumbag, Kool-Aid drinker or a 100+ different names how does that change what I said about giving him credit?

@CountValentine You really think he is a coward for not responding to the missile strike?

Gee, well if Lindsey Graham said it's an act of war, then I guess we should send in the troops  ::)
Let's ignore all the posturing and strutting on both sides and focus on the bottom line. So far Iran seems to be trying to (push the envelope as far as can and still) avoid a real war. Which is what Dan & I have both been saying all along they would do. It seems to me the "bet" was whether it escalates into a full-blown war, not whether Iran commits  an "act of war" without killing Americans.
So simple to understand, I'm surprised anyone can get this wrong.
Everyone said they would retaliate and figure out how far they can push our buttons. They will keep doing that. That doesn't mean the US is entering into a war.

To have a war you need two participants. US started with an act of war, Iran responded with an act of war. Trump decided to back down and I am grateful he came to his senses after this major blunder.

None of which means we are at war.

So you are grateful he is a coward?
Honestly, I usually find you to be sensible. But you are like a bull in a china shop in this discussion

NO!!! It was the right thing to do and in the best interest of the US.
He is a coward for being a draft dodger. If you know anyone that serve in the US military ask them if they consider a draft dodger a coward.

So in other words they didn't do any real harm, everybody gets to claim victory, and we all go back home and argue about impeachment again.

So remind me again why this is all so terrible?

Not involving myself in this argument, just honestly wondering...Didn't Iran attack the US embassy (twice?) prior to this attack? Wouldn't that be the initiating act of war?

Still genuinely wondering, not stoking the flames, but why would that make a difference? I don't think anyone questioned who was behind those attacks. Can war not spur from proxy attacks?
