Responding to “America’s Newsroom,” Wallace Trump questioned the statement that potential victims were the reason for his decision. Wallace said, such discussions about “collateral damage” would occur in the rule, to go far in advance of the President ordering the strike, forward, before, on Thursday.
“A war with Iran would be a very ugly and protracted conflict, this is the question: Has the President really have the stomach to, this kind of attack, and more deeply involved, perhaps, in a confrontation with Iran?” Wallace said.

He said that Iran bears responsibility for provoking the confrontation, but there are costs to both action and inaction.
“Remember when President Obama decided a few years ago, he said, the red line and said that we would strike back if Syria launched a chemical weapons attack and then he dodged that. A lot of people, including Donald Trump as a candidate and also as President, said there is a real cost, which threatens, in relation to the United States something, and then go ahead and do it was reminded,” Wallace.
He closed Trump can still be a strike with less risk to cause losses, but it seems that the President is “not much appetite” for such an escalation.
