If US officials are correct, the proximate cause of 176 innocents being killed was two things: poor training of Iranian soldiers, and Iran's reasonable expectation Trump could bomb it at any time. That second thing is what conservatives have been crowing excitedly about for days.
The only point I'm trying to make here, and it truly is the only point, is that war is just about the ugliest thing that human beings do. That doesn't mean it never has to be done, but it does mean you can't do it like a f*****g jackass. Which is *exactly* what this president is.
