I agree that they're highly unlikely, because I can't believe even the toadiest of Trump's coterie will let him launch an unprovoked war against Iran. But if he does, the U.S. (not just Trump) will be the "bad actor," and we will all suffer the consequences.

So no, those things not happening does not in any way vindicate Trump's foreign policy performance so far.
I'm not expecting any surprises.
