On sky news they said Tucker Carlson is advising Trump on Iran, and he is telling him to not get involved militarily. John Bolton and Mike Pompeo are said to support military action and Trump was against it.

It's all a show, Trump's usually tactic is being put into motion. I expect a peace conference between Trump and the mullahs in Las Vegas in the near future.

Has ‘Gilead’ and variations replaced alt-right as the preferred insult of the left?

If Iran was trying to proclaim that they didn't attack the ships, would it be a good idea to show their capability to shoot down drones?

Where exactly can the USA attack Iran from? Yep I've seen that map a few posts ago, but it doesn't show the terrain.

Apart from that, Iranian people are some of the nicest, most educated and fun people that I have ever met from the Middle East, i would hate to see their country go the same way as Syria.

Bolton is mad for a war.

Can't imagine Trump and the American public want one.

My OH is Iranian so I am slightly biased. The only options would be a ground invasion, which is pretty impossible due to the terrain or air strikes or nukes, which would be kinda genocide-y.

That Iran could hit this drone which reportedly is designed to operate at 60,000 feet is quite impressive.
Their air defences may be far better than thought.

They seem up to now to have been following the advice of Sun Tzu in "The art of war".

"hide your strength, show weakness, a surprised enemy is a beaten enemy".

Israel want Iran dismantled, the quicker the better. The world sits by with trade interests such as the U.K. nodding along.
As always it'll be the average American/Iranian Joe who does the dying.
And all the refugees would land at europes doorstep again with the help of many israeli ngo,s,
Win win for israel.
