Let me get this straight. You know, in your opinion, that someone you've never met is out of their element and knowledge? You know the knowledge he has with Iran? I

Dude I did preface the remark by IMO, of course it's not the word of God, but it's an opinion formulated by listening , watching, reading and thinking. If you have any evidence to the contrary please present I am open to being convinced that Trump has an understanding of Iran and a sensible plan and strategy, short of war, to keep Iran from getting a Nuke. Because isnt that all we should care about? What can they do to really hurt Americans in mass and to cripple our actions without a nuke?
But you seem great at critiquing my criticism of Trumps understanding and abilities without presenting a scintilla of evidence to the contrary. Send me an interview where he makes the case for his understanding and strategy or...


There isn't much a threat as it has to cross Europe and would likely be shot down, either over the Atlantic or - heavens forbid - over Europe. Of course there's always the problem of detonating a dirty bomb from the inside. However, all these threats are moreso Israels and Europe's threats than the USs as they are immediate neighbors. Trump's actions don't make things worse, but delivered justice. If you're really so worried about people losing their lives by hand of Iran you should lobby for an Israel preemptive war on any hostile middle-eastern nation, if necessary with the ultima ratio (nukes). Sounds terrible? Yeah, definitely. But it is what it is, you have a fucked up region in which Israel has been the only sane state for more than 50 years now. Occasionally you have dictator capable of of delivering enough counterbalance to keep the crazies at bay, such as Saddam or Assad, but eventually it is up to Israel to figure out when enough is enough. Sure, Turkey, Russia and others may play a dangerous game by sympathizing with the crazies in hope of damaging the US a little, but ultimately these assholes - don't forget Pakistan - are right in front of their door and if you think they will be able to form an alliance against the US you are deeply mistaken, they will eventually annihilate each other if they let the crazies get their nukes. So stop blaming Trump.

And you watch Trump sucking Kim's dick because he has nukes. It dont take a fucking genius to say I want nukes. Would Trump assassinate me if I had a nuke? No he would suck my dick too and maybe throw in a rim job for good measure.

Has TDS no cure?

Wrong. The case for not wanting nukes was torpedoed by Obama standing by and watching an ally who gave up the world's 3rd largest nuclear stockpile (with ICBMs, strategic bombers and all that jazz) in exchange to security and territorial integrity assurances from the USA being attacked, parts of it annexed and parts occupied by Russia (killing 15,000 Ukrainians in process). Oh, yeah, he gave them some blankets. Eventually.

If there ever was a case against giving up nukes in exchange for some "assurances" - this is the one, not some weak rhetorical bullshit about "Trump sucking somebody's dick".

Rand Paul, he is careful in what he says, to not critique Trump or Pompeo but says what is probably going to be the result of this.

I get the skepticism and it may bear out to be warranted after WMD and Bush II, but you or I simply don't know.


You're making baseless claims about POTUS. I don't care that you trash Trump. I care that the claims are baseless. You, me or anyone has no clue what intelligence is out there. You can't judge any of this. I'd say the same with Obama, so this isn't a POTUS thing. People gotta stop acting like Trump or any POTUS is 100% making EVERY decision. It's a joke.

As I've said with other users, just say you hate Trump and we can move on with the conversation.

Nope I dont hate him. i dont know the man personally. I do think, from the performance to date, he and his administration are woefully unprepared and incompetant.to deal with foreign affairs and crisis such as we now find ourselves in. And that you cannot believe, without verification, anything they say.

So what did you think of what Rand Paul said? I think he probably has it about right though no one can tell how this mess will play out.

Rand Paul is prob right but so is Wookie. People blow this totally out of proportion because TDS. It's not always the prezs decision. Generals def have some leeway and can strike without the prez if they deem the situation necessitates it. This will be forgotten soon. TDS is here to stay, they'll latch onto something new.

I remain considering that this was done with some form of covert Iranian cooperation. Salami Baloney was committed to perpetual war because that's the way he liked it. Progressive Iranians, and young Iranians in particular, don't like the combination of religion dominated state government and war goading from what I can gather and would much rather have a peaceful, prosperous secular state.

What it boils down to is that no critique of Trump is tolerated. If Paul is probably right the only way to square that is that the Generals ordered the hit. No fucking way that happened. Yeah, I wasn't there but no General in their right mind would do this without Presidential authorization.

Democrats Call For Flags To Be Flown At Half-Mast To Grieve Death Of Soleimani

Flags were spotted flying at half-mast around the country, notably at The Washington Post, The New York Times, and in front of several celebrities' homes. The celebrities went out and bought an American flag for the first time just to fly it at half-mast for this important time of grief.

"The grieving process is painful but necessary," said Rep. Ilhan Omar. "As a nation, we need to stop and grieve this great, austere, revered religious scholar. He was one of the good ones."

In a rare moment of unity with The Squad, Pelosi gave each of the girls a hug, telling them to just "let it all out" in their time of sadness.

Ocasio-Cortez didn't seem to know what was happening but adjusted her glasses to look smart.

A teary-eyed Barack Obama was also seen solemnly lowering the flag in front of his seaside mansion. "To think, this all could have been prevented with a few pallets of cash."

Soleimani funeral stampede in Iran leaves at least 56 dead, state TV reports

At least 56 Iranians were crushed to death Tuesday in a stampede that erupted during the funeral for Qassem Soleimani, the general killed last week in a U.S. airstrike, the country’s state media is reporting.

A CNN reporter sounded the alarm on Sunday over the popularity of a piece published by a conservative satirical site.

Last week, The Babylon Bee drew some laughs with an article poking fun at the Democrats' reaction to the U.S. airstrike that led to the death of Irani Gen. Qassem Soleimani, using the headline "Democrats Call For Flags To Be Flown At Half-Mast to Grieve Death of Soleimani."

Responding to a Twitter user who expressed concern that "Republican friends" on Facebook "are circulating it like it's legit," CNN reporter Donie O'Sullivan pointed out that The Babylon Bee was getting more traffic on that one article than his network and The New York Times get weekly.

"To put this in perspective, this is the same number of engagements the top NY Times and CNN stories on Facebook had over the past week," O'Sullivan wrote. "A lot of people sharing this 'satirical' story

Did Mossad stop assassinating their nuclear scientists? "Hey, guess what, you're our new nuclear expert! Get ye to the Centrifuges!" "What happened to the last nuclear expert?" "Don't ask, and congratulations on your promotion!"

Hmm, where did Salami Baloney keep all those terrorist seeding mega-bucks? Maybe the Clinton Foundation? Or did Obama just give him an American Treasury Unlimited Platinum Credit Card?
