I am not sure when the last time our country went to war (or military action) that was warranted.

Shouldn’t the video be of them placing the bomb, not removing it? Iran claims it is responsible for security of the vessels in that area and that they were the ones who rescued the crews of the damaged ships. Is it possible that they were on alert after the first attacks, saw the mine and removed it to stop another ship from being damaged? They were busted removing a mine.
Another scenario I heard Trump claim is that they were removing the mine because it failed to detonate and they those mines have Iran written all over it so the were trying to remove it to get rid of the evidence. That is a plausible scenario. We don’t know.

It's telling that some US allies like Japan dispute our account of events and who is responsible. It's also telling that we can no longer trust the executive branch (Bolton and Pompeo) to be honest about what has happened overseas.

It’s a little scary to realize we might be the bad guys. All my life I thought we were the good guys. Growing up in school I was taught we were always the good guys. Then I grew up and started reading more and realized we have done some very unscrupulous things. Now we elect a guy that is basically a serial liar and evil to the core and the more off the rails he goes the more his base likes him.

What happened to US?

It's like when Obi-Wan gives the "certain point of view" speech to Luke.
