The New York Times: Reports " ...Some analysts said they worried that the harsh words could further escalate hostilities, and even precipitate a military confrontation, if Iran tests America with another missile launch. "
Lets Get Real:
One can assume that the Trump Administration has not be totally clear about any US action as to give itself room for action should Iran test another missile. On the campaign trail the Candidate Trump was 100% against the US/ Iran nuclear deal, as the article states since becoming President Trump has been quiet on the issue. Of course there are many ways for Iran to cause problems in the region, they could cause problems for Western oil tankers in the Gulf, use terrorism to hit US interests in the region, or have their terrorist groups hit Israel as to divert attention. Iran will be a major problem for Trump during the his first term, lets see if he can do any better than President Obama.
