Hmm it will be interesting to see a casualty count 80 bodies is a lot to cover up someone will miss them, then we also have the fact that nothing is really being said and then theres this

They also likely waiting for the Iraqi response, before proportioning responses (just a thought there) if not it's looking like they are preparing a large scale response.

But I still believe theres a chance the US will seek to back away, if they do it will be a humiliation for Trump

Last night was of historic significance - it's first time any national military has hit a US installation, in retaliation against US aggression.

#Iran did measured response in accordance w/UN charter in response to unprovoked US assassination of its leadership. #RationalActor
