8. That thought has been gnawing at me.

I keep stumbling over the word “complacent.”

As in - I can’t help but suspect that the Iranians set up a ruse. Shoot some bombs toward a target and blow it up and make some noise. Nobody of ours killed. Okay, they’re done. Nice ‘n’ neat. They got their rocks off and made their statement. So it’s over, right?

Not so fast!

I can’t help but feel that they’re now going to lay low for awhile and let the dust settle and allow Americans to think “well, okay. That’s that. Everybody relax. Stand down red alert.”

I think maybe they’re biding their time now. Lettin’ it go. The opponent (ie: us) eases up and lets down their guard. And THAT’S when they strike. A few weeks or months from now. Outta nowhere. With no clue or warning given. Just BOOM!
