I'm sure he thought about the consequences. A big explosion and Iranian terrorist bits flying in all directions. Then Trump with a big smug grin.

I imagine they considered the consequences if they didnt. People act as if Salami was an innocent bystander sitting on his hands. This guy was actively participating and involved in terroristic acts at their inception.

You’d do the same if your bosses told you to Pete, you corporate puppet.

Pretty idiotic thought process by Buttigieg. I realize that he is echoing what the Left thinks here, but as a politician he really ought to know that no leader makes a decision in a vacuum, certainly not the president. You can bet that there were likely a couple dozen different people involved in this, from the military to various regional experts.

Ex-mayor Pete would make a terrible President. If this is how he feels we'll be neck deep in foreign terrorists, likely involved in a major war, and would-be martyrs with their hands on long range nukes. The other option is that he's simply posturing and would do the exact same thing.

I am sure he thought about it. Even considering what happened if we let him go again. Then pulled the trigger because he didn't want to be responsible for what the terrorists did next.

When the "up & coming" corporate Democrat drops out of the primary, most of his votes will probably go to Biden - the senior corporate rool. Ugh!

I’m sure Trumps only consideration was how it would play out on US television. A is it good for Donald or is it bad for Donald type thing.

Spanky Bonespurs is going to get soldiers and civilians killed for a stupid distraction he's putting on for his campaign... good luck getting votes.... die hard Spanksters will vote for him and that's going to certainly be a small number. Dems will win by a landslide. Righty's will cry and probably do some stupid sociopathic stupidity because they're the biggest snowflakes and whiners.... They all threaten it when they see Spanky losing...
