US Forces Kill Qassem Soleimani, Leader of Iran's Terrorist Quds Forces
UPDATE: ATTACK WAS PROMPTED BY TERRORIST THREAT THAT SULEIMANI HIMSELF WAS OVERSEEING

The most powerful terrorist leader in the world is now dead.

I guess Trump wasn't bluffing.

UPDATE: ATTACK WAS PROMPTED BY TERRORIST THREAT THAT SULEIMANI HIMSELF WAS OVERSEEING







Also, the second in command of Lebanon's Hezballah was killed:



Let us take a moment of silent to mourn these Austere Religious Scholars.

General Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' elite Quds Force, has been killed by US forces in Iraq.

The Pentagon confirmed he was killed "at the direction of the president".

Gen Soleimani was being driven car at Baghdad airport with local Iran-backed militias when hit by a US air strike.

Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, called the move "extremely dangerous and a foolish escalation".

Gen Soleimani was a major figure in the Iranian regime. His Quds Force reported directly to the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and he was hailed as a heroic national figure.

A spokesman for the Iranian government said the country's top security body would hold an extraordinary meeting shortly to discuss the "criminal act of attack".


Ben Loose-Ass Rhodes is whining and crying that the Bad Orange Man killed his very good Iranian collusion partner:




This is obviously a big escalation on our part, after years of Iran's own big escalations.

I imagine they'll escalate further.

We might wind up having to level Teheran, if the Iranians demand it of us.

More: The Democrats who supposedly are such tough-guys who are the Adults in the Room about National Security are, of course, whining and crying that a terrorist murderer has finally been ended:



Whoever puts out Joe Biden's statements when Biden's mind is, um, resting takes a similar angle: Sure sure sure he was a terrorist murderer, but how dare someone who is not a Democrat kill him!



I imagine this will be the standard liberal/media (but I repeat myself) spin.

Speaking of the standard liberal/media (but I repeat myself) spin:

I can't wait to read The Bulwark's and The Dispatch's fulsome denunciations of American warmongering and adventurism in the Middle East tomorrow!

5 CNN Breaking News: Trump assassinated a peace loving Iranian aid worker in Baghdad today. While on a mission to feed poor children of color in the slums of Baghdad (Slums created by Trump policies) he was ruthlessly killed by an air strike that Trump personally directed from the White House in Washington DC. It is reported Trump sent the signal to the weapon to kill this poor man of peace !!!!

But Trump wasn't President then. The Administration had other priorities.

86 I think Trump very much wants to avoid a war with Iran.

And I think this may have been the only way.

By that I mean:

I have suspected since the Syria pullout/hit that the actors in that region, specifically Russia/Iran have decided they want to orchestrate an attack on the US that can't be responded to with any less severity than war. And I think Trump keeps pulling targets out from under them then slapping their hands.

I think they want a war and they want it of the controversial, US-started kind. Trump continues to put the ball in their court.

121 Iran has been trying to provoke some level of war with US ... partly to get their people behind their leaders, partly to win over other nations (I guess).

After Iran assaulting our embassy, this action may do more to prevent war than start it. Trump promised a response, he took out their military leaders ... in IRAQ ... where they were obviously continuing subversive measures (against US and Iraq, it would seem).

This strike comes after months of Iranian actions and attacks on American assets - the latest chapter in the decades of war by Iran.

3. The Iranians have been attacking the stuff in #2 for weeks if not months. And they finally kill a US citizen.

214 Breaking (per Al Jazeera): Iran is now publicly also blaming Israel for complicity in this strike. Israel has announced it has officially stepped up defense.

Honestly, given the 100% rock solid certainty of Israel responding disproportionally when attacked, it's hard to imagine it's in Iran's interests here to stir up trouble with Israel. To be seen as a real response to Sol's assassination, Iran would have to do more than it usually does when it stirs up trouble with Israel. Israel, in turn, would have to respond more forcefully than it usually does, and what it usually does it to kick the ever loving crap out of anyone who attacks it, with prejudice. So, if Iran tries to attack Israel to "save face," it's quite possible Israel will smash that teeth out of that face.

* The War Powers Act is unconstitutional idiocy, probably would be struck down even by today's ridiculous, collapsed "judiciary" if it were ever tested - it's actually the perfect embodiment of congressional laziness/cowardice and popular ignorance, and boy does it parallel the mindset of large part of the electorate today

Even better: read a document called the Vienna Convention of 1961. Countries aren't supposed to violate the terms of that document. All the justification we need is in there. You do not jerk with another country's embassy. You especially don't go into a third country, embarrassing that country (which is the host and is responsible for ensuring the said Convention is followed in regards to the embassy) by attacking an embassy - proxies or no.

I've pounded on that thing for two-three days now and yes, it means I am a mega-nerd - I have it on my computer desktop - but seriously, it's some interesting reading. The Iranians have been wiping their asses with it for 40 years and it's time SOMEBODY called them on it. The U.S. embassy in Tehran was seized on November 4, 1979. Bombs should have been falling on Tehran on November 5.

I'd also recommend Mark Bowden's "Guests of the Ayatollah". The telling scene for me is that once word of the embassy seizure hit the U.S., the Iranian embassy in DC was the scene of protests. So what did the U.S. do? Follow their treaty obligations. DC Cops cordoned off the embassy.

Not is self-preservation is an instinct Iran's leaders possess. (h/t, The Wolf)

The problem is that Iran's regime has been rocked by protests in recent years, even in recent months. It's economy has been hard hit by U.S. sanctions, so the regime is not on firm footing. If the U.S. went further and took actions that led to the toppling of the regime - and it could do so - these actions will look, in retrospect, to be suicidal.

Do not be surprised if people there are enraged at the government.

299 Rainmondo's screech demonstrates once again just how little imagination or understanding the leftists have. No one is going to invade Iran - there's nothing we lost there that we have to go get. If, as was discussed above, we are pulled into some kind of war, then our only goal will be to ensure that Iran no longer has the ability to project any force beyond it's borders. And I think that could be done rather easily, in less than a week.

Much has been said about Iran's naval forces near the straights of Hormuz - several targeted strikes that take out every dock and boat of any kind within 50 miles of that, and there goes that threat. Not too difficult for a carrier strike force, if they were given the task.

308 Look at the situation from the Iranian POV, and understand just how thoroughly they are fucked right now. Their biggest and most immediate concern - we have clearly penetrated into all of their internal communications. We know what they're planning, what they're doing, where they're going. They have forces spread far too wide, far beyond where they can regroup easily, and they cannot trust a single communications platform. Not to mention that their forces have just been decapitated, and their will be great confusion in just figuring out who's in charge now.

Look Raimondo, there isn't going to be a US invasion of Iran. We learned the lesson in Afghanistan and Iraq, that regime change by ground force invasion (short of total destruction and capitulation, circa WWII), doesn't work.

Highly more likely are additional US decapitation attacks on Iranian leadership, together with wonton destruction of Iranian's military infrastructure, if a "war" breaks out between US and Iran. That is, a "blow it all up, and see who takes over" type of regime change strategy.

Posted by: Ernst Schreiber at January 03, 2020 01:07 AM (xmKbk)

I agree. We need to remember that Reagan and Trump were very different men, and they were each what the Nation needed at the time. Reagan knew how to inspire people to buy into his vision of what America should be, he understood why the American system was so much superior to socialism, and he knew how to explain that to average people in such a way that they would understand it too. He was a Father to the country, much like Washington had been at the beginning.

Trump doesn't have that skill, I would say he only has one great skill - He Fights. And he doesn't just fight, he fights brilliantly! He's got the best intuitive grasp of strategy of almost any President I can think of. And at a time when America is under attack from enemies without and within, a Fighter is what we need.

Posted by: Axeman at January 03, 2020 12:56 AM (Eicbe)

You'd be surprised at how many Americans think the military cannot and shouldn't do anything without Congress authorizing it. "We should declare war before doing anything!"

No. A declaration of war is a diplomatic tool, nothing more, nothing less. If you read Foreign Relations of the United States, the war declaration is handed to the Ambassador of the country targeted in the war declaration, and he/she is told to pack their bags and head to the nearest third country. The United States is obliged to look after their security and to expedite the process, but once they reach Canada or Mexico or fly out, they are on their own.

I draw your attention to Article 45 of the Vienna Convention of 1961, which outlines what countries must do in regards to diplomatic missions in the event armed conflict breaks out between them. The diplomats may leave but the respective countries must still look after the embassies and leave them secure. If so desired, a third country can look after those properties. Indeed, one idea that was kicked around by Carter was a declaration of war on Iran in 1980, because it was believed that Article 45 would kick in and that in this way, the hostage crisis would end (I say HAH! A country that couldn't even follow the basics would suddenly find itself bound to Article 45???)

This is what a declaration of war ultimately does. Conflict can happen without one and that ultimately doesn't mean jack to those in the trenches who are dodging bullets and sending their own downrange. So yeah, while Congress DOES have its role to play in the military (mostly relating to purse strings), I don't want to hear all this crap about war declarations being needed, blah blah blah. Besides, as other posters pointed out, this thing started on November 4, 1979.

Slick Willie sold the North down the tubes in the "agreement" vis-à-vis the IRA. And true to form, the IRA faction went and elected Sein Fein to power (in their districts) in same election that saw Boris Johnson and the Brexit party annihilate the "Remain" factions.

My connection to Northern Ireland isn't "Wikipedia", but rather, she who I've shared a home with since 2006, who is FROM there. (MBA, University of Ulster.) And a U.S. Citizen since 2003.

Hillary Clinton will find less actual welcome in Northern Ireland than she would at a Republican National Convention in the post-Bush era.

She's waddling into a buzz-saw of epic proportions.

371 I believe that Trump has the ability to and does inspire us. He made me stand up take notice and hope when he got off his car and went around and over fences to bypass the morons blocking the hwy. He inspired 63 million Americans to vote for him on the chance that maybe he was a man that truly loved this country and maybe just maybe on the slimmest of chances would do as he promised and believed that western civilization was worth fighting for. He has given me hope.

Yea, and as was pointed out above, the War Powers Resolution has never been definitively tested but he Supreme Court. My recollection on Supreme Court jurisprudence in this area is that they have expressly recognized that the Executive has inherent power to engage in military action. The whole point in making a single person in charge of the US military was to ensure the US can act quickly and decisively when it needs to, and the War Powers Resolution was drafted around that concept in an attempt to put some limits on the Executive's unilateral ability to enter military conflict.

Indeed. One thing about the War Powers Act of 1973 is that, yes, there it is, but everyone is scared to use the thing. Mostly, anyway (I could be wrong but I think the Dems used it for Urgent Fury in 1983).

Ultimately the one thing about having the President as Commander in Chief is that it upholds the principle of Unity of Command. Do you want 535 commanders or just one? Congress absolutely has a Constitutional role in regards to military ops BUT ultimately it is best to have one CinC.

473 By the way - the theory of the Unitarian Executive resolves more that conflicts abroad, it resolve trade agreements against foreign "trade adversaries as well - this something that NeverTrumpers never understood, mostly folks like Kevin Williamson - bargaining positions in the micro are poor due to their sole standing against another nation without the same national business guidelines or rules applied - thus lacking the power of economic force as applied by a committed unitarian executive with purpose. The forceful unitarian executive can effectively bargain for the country's economic gain that the individual cannot.

549 We're witnessing the death of the Iran regime and their death throes toward the US. I've been following Iran's involvement in Iraq closely for over a year because I have a significant financial investment there. Iraq is on the cusp of enacting their monetary reforms, which will add
value to their currency and allow their markets to open up
internationally. It will also provide the HCL law, which pays all Iraqi citizens an oil revenue stipend like Kuwaitis receive. The reforms have been hampered by the Iranian puppets in the Iraqi leadership and parliament, which has perpetuated the ongoing 30% unemployment rate while the corrupt politicians get rich. That's is the backdrop of the situation, and these are the three most important points to know right now: 1) The vast majority of Iraqis support the US strikes against Iranian militias, who have killed over 500 Iraqi protestors and wounded or kidnapped thousands more. Iraqis have been continuously protesting since October to purge their government of the Iranian puppets who facilitate the theft of their oil revenue, so the militias are trying to suppress them. That's also why Iraqi political leaders are lashing out at the US -- not because of Iraqi sovereignty, but to defend Iranian interests. The protests have so far resulted in new elections laws passing, a special election scheduled, and the resignation of the Iran-backed Prime Minister, Abdul Mahdi, who is in office temporarily until the special election. So when Mahdi criticizes Trump, know that the Iraqi people overwhelmingly oppose Mahdi's statements. 2) The theft of Iraqi oil revenue is the only lifeline Iran has under the sanctions, which their religious class has admitted is bankrupting them. Iranian citizens in Iran are still in revolt and burning down banks to support the US efforts to suffocate the regime. When the regime is no longer able to pay their military, the regime will fall. It's getting close. 3) The new election law passed by parliament will discontinue the appointment of Prime Minister candidates by the large Iran-backed political parties, and instead only accept candidates from regional districts (tribes, really), which means the candidates nominated will be anti-Iran and pro US. I predict the next PM will be Abdul-Ghani al-Asadi. All this adds up to REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN. And soon.

========

Good info. I certainly think this outcome is within the realm of reasonable probability. I think we again have to note how brilliant this Trump move was tonight, to this end. Strong move by Trump, sending powerful message to Iran, but in a way that doesn't kill Iranian non-combatants thus not taking the bait to give Iranian regime an "out" to their internal problems with they own citizens as would be the case with a military hit on Iranian soil.

But, depending on how Iran reacts, Trump may not be able to refrain from hitting targets in Iran, proper. Delicate game for Trump here, but if US plays its hand correctly here, the toppling of Iranian regime would be MASSIVE win for Trump.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at January 03, 2020 02:55 AM (DRgs8)

583 If the Dims are upset, then President Trump won!
Does it not occur to these whinging wimps that the deaths of military leaders might just help Iranians, who want to overturn the mullahs, clear a path?
Does it not occur to these whining, frowning tv "reporters" that this act of killing terrorists so bold as to "own" Iraqi airspace and airport so brazenly, that Iraq just might feel happy?
Personally and biased, because I love President Trump, I think it was a fantastic win for intelligence and military to surgically kill these monsters. In Iraq, where they should not have been swaggering...not in Iran. A few missiles and daid, then out. Not an invasion of Iran, dummies.
These terrorists were plotting to kill even more Americans. They are dead now, with their 72 hideous crones, burning in hell forevermore. allyopp ackbared to pieces and a ruby ring. Dims, Never Trumpers, THIS is a good thing. Our President has courage and protects Americans. You stupid MSM clowns did not know, nor did crying Chuckie Schumer and Nanny P, BECAUSE YOU WOULD LEAK LIKE A COLLANDER. You have such rancid Trump disorder you appear to have Mad Cow disease along with jabberwocky blathering of nincompoops.
President Trump could find a cure for cancer and you'd beetch and moan about too many people now allowed to live.
I hope tomorrow's talking points are inclusive of "distraction" of impeachment, or him acting alone and reckless. I assure you those will be mentioned. Yet when their leader Obamabungo gave 1.7 billion in cash to Iran it was okie doke. Or when he caused the "Arab Spring" with The Hag, that was ok. Or when he told the Russian to tell Putin to wait til after the election for some hanky panky. That was ok. When he killed Bin Laden it was the best thing ever.
I do hope there will be tears, gnashing of teeth, tearing of garments and a general rerun of the election of 2016.

It is NOT World War III. President Trump is too smart for that. Let's not panic and run around with hair on fire. I, for one, will sit back and watch the hysteria, knowing that for the first time in a long time we have a leader not afraid to fight, and who wants to protect us.

620 Obama would come up with plans to accomplish exactly nothing which would support the United States.

And then asian an awe inspiring name to the plan to accomplish nothing.

Because words matter.

Words matter far more than actual accomplishments.

So the chosing of the proper name for the plan is paramount to the process.

And days, if not weeks will be devoted to focus testing the responses to the name of the plan.

Trump probably spent all of about 11 seconds naming last nights intended actions...Plan A.

And then told them to execute the plan.

An EXTREME understatement. The media is filled with incredibly lazy people.
================

Late last night when this news story broke, somebody in prior thread linked to Zero Hedge, who linked to live video news feed of Al Jazeera (English). I'm up late working, and have had Al Jazeera on for several hours now, and I'm shocked how GOOD the NEWS coverage is. I don't agree with all of their commentators' views, but their commentators aren't talking heads. They have news reporters on the ground in Washington DC, Baghdad and Tehran, the people they've brought in for commentary are official spokes people from various interests involved, they've had translated live coverage of official Tehran responses and video (until Tehran disallowed all video and pictures from streets of Tehran over coming days... what does THAT tell you).

It's been such a long time that I've actually listened to real news REPORTING, it's startling.

So yes... in 2020 America, this Moron is going to bookmark Al Jeezera as a reputable news source for international news in preference to every single US based "news" outfit, including of course, Fox News.

They've cited statements from US officials, US State Dept., Israel, Netanyahu, Khemeni, Muqtada al-Sadr (the Iraqi Shia cleric of Mahdi army fame during Iraq war), etc. They've had live video, still shots, historians, substantive non-opinionated background, arguments from various standpoints, maps, etc. Coverage has been outstanding.

Funny how prescient they are. NOT!

An article dated 12/31/19 and already past it's read-by date.

Speaking of the administration's Iran non-strategy, O'Brien did not mention that the maximum-pressure campaign, just like pretty much all other foreign policy initiatives of this administration, has been implemented over the objection of all our democratic allies except Israel, because this administration is all but incapable of working with democratic partners.

As for peace through strength, the Reagan administration sank half of Iran's navy in response to Iranian antagonism. Trump's response to Iran's attacks on Saudi Arabia, the downing of an American UAV in international airspace, and attacks on commercial oil tankers in international waters has been silence.

Yes, aren't we all, but my point is, what's the point of talking about what the Democrats are talking about?

Why, it's almost like the entire US "journalism" industry is so hollowed out, they don't have any reporters to bring on air on the places that matter tonight, they've got no one on staff to spin up fact sheets on the players, places and history involved, and none of the news personalities have the personal chops to offer intelligent substantive commentary on events. If you're missing all of that, I guess a debate about what Nancy Pelosi said in a statement is where you go. And on the other channels, it will be the same talking heads that were talking about Stormy Daniels now talking about this Iran incident.

We Americans are getting dumber by the second that we pay attention to our so-called news sources.

82 Airborne rolled into Iraq a few hours ago. Will be interesting to learn the extent to which US knew when this was going to go down in advance. Was it a momentary target of opportunity or did we know his schedule in advance? Did Trump make chess moves with US military assets in days before this strike?

In any event, US citizens have been advised to leave Iraq by any means necessary, and to not under any circumstances go to the US embassy in Iraq. Marines have been set up to defend since embassy attack a few days ago, and now that we've whacked Soleimani the entire US Middle East military apparatus is no doubt locking everything down, loading missiles on planes, and getting air strikes ready for primary & tertiary Iranian targets.

722 If your enemy is already on an aggressive footing with you, killing its leader isn't going to make things worse. They were already planning to attack, or they were already attacking. All you've done is explode the guy responsible for planning all that. Frankly, that is a Good Thing (TM). In particular, if you had a good reason for the explosion, then there is no real advantage in being more aggressive than they already are.

Or maybe we should send them more plane loads full of cash and gold? That worked great, didn't it? After Obama feted these assholes in the White House and loaded them up with our goodies, they started acting like model citizens -- if model citizens finance terrorism, stir up shit in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc., continually threaten to nuke Israel, and hold daily "Death to America!" rallies.

Obama tried the carrot approach, and the Iranians shoved the carrot up his ass.

THIS.I've seen retweets of a Trump tweet a year or so ago in all caps telling Khomeni: DON'T EVER THREATEN THE US AGAIN Or THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES (praphrased) -- plus Khomeni's tweet from a few days ago where he, yep, threatened Trump and 'you can't do anything'.

842 I don't think this is the right time but I have to deliver a psa at
this point. Unless you like really bad flavors and really don't like
bourbon, do not ever buy Knob Creek Smoked Maple.

Even
if you drink this stuff with butter topped pancakes it will not do the
trick. I keep trying to mix this with real knob Creek bourbon and it
still does not work.

I realize flavored
bourbons and whiskies are hot right now. Hell, there is a peanut butter
flavored whiskey on the market. Someone told me that if you get it and
mix it with Chambord, it is like a PBJ sandwich. There are a bunch
of other flavored whiskies out there now but all i have tried are
dreck.
You would think that a high priced
whiskey such as Knob Creek would be the exception, but you would be
wrong. At least I know what I am getting if I go with a Beam apple. It
will be crap and taste like fake apple flavor. But I have tried the
Knob Creek and wanted to like it. They call it smoked maple but there
is no smoke at all and the maple is sickly. I tried adding more bourbon
but that only made more bad booze.

Opinions
vary and if you like bad tasting maple flavors, this might be ok if
overpriced. I wont try a straight shot at this point because it no
longer matters. But I recall a straight poor of this stuff reminds me
of Drambuie, but much, much worse.

If you
really like maple flavors, get some bourbon and mix in a maple syrup
and water concotion Don't ever try to dilute this stuff with the real thing as you will only be throwing good Bourbon after bad.. Again I
wanted to like this stuff but that is not possible. My guess is at
least one cob will agree with me.

A) This guy, the one that spontaneously attracted a hellfire missle, was the *head* of that intelligence operation. Likely putting the entire thing into chaos.

You are in a tough place then. I prefer to be thought of as a dick to just get it out of the way. That way you work from that as a starting point.
It does make for some interesting and many times "One time" encounters though.

Ideally what should happen, is everyone tones it down when encountering each other from that point on. I know I would. I also know if I did and they knew my stance yet they persisted, it would be a "Fark you" from me, or "You go, I'll pass. Have fun with your dick friends."

895 I remember during the 2016 election of a discussion from the experts that Trump did not know the difference between Shia terrorist and Suni terrorist.

I am paraphrasing it but Trump response was "If they try to kill Amercans, I will kill them"

Iranians stormed the American embassy to get a response, take notes

I hear ya, I thought about that but I just had to get it out. I would not have been true to myself if I let this fester. -------
I avoid all of the flavored alcohols. I believe it is a lesser alcohol, mixed with flavor that they still charge top dollar for.

Like flavored coffee beans



Posted by: Bruce at January 03, 2020 07:20 AM (vd8XM)

They usually use the flavoring as an excuse to water it down and give you a lower ABV version. This is particularly true with flavored vodkas. But the Knob Creek Smoked Maple is 90 proof. Sure it is lower than what they normally offer but still it is reasonable. They might use lesser booze but I think they take the 100 proof, water it down a bit, and ruin it with horrible maple flavors.

I get your point for sure. I think the same thing about pre-marinated meats as the super market. They are not going to choose their best cuts to marinate with whatever, that would be illogical. But as for Knob Creek, I think they take good bourbon and ruin it. Someone said these companies do this to try to attract non whiskey drinkers. That makes sense I guess but I am telling you this stuff is bad.

There is a video on youtube where a whiskey reviewer takes a sip of this stuff and then proceeds to poor the entire bottle out. I thought the guy was being a pompous ass but I was wrong.

901 Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) is complaining about President Donald Trumps attack Thursday on Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Iraq just two days after complaining that Trump was impotent to respond to Iranian attacks.

Murphy, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tweeted on Tuesday: The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable. Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us. America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away. What a disgrace.

Proof Positive that ignorant assholes should keep their yaps shut.

902 844 I don't think this is the right time but I have to deliver a psa at this point. Unless you like really bad flavors and really don't like bourbon, do not ever buy Knob Creek Smoked Maple.

Quint,

Of all the tragedies to recently hit the bourbon communiity (collapse of the rickhouse in Bardstown, KY, loss of 45,000 barrels of Jim Beam to a warehouse fire), the worst is this self-inflicted assault on America's taste buds through making flavored whiskeys. Bourbon shouldn't taste like maple syrup, or apples, or cinnamon. Bourbon should taste like grain, and oak, and char. That the boys at Knob Creek have wasted their excellent whiskey by mixing it with maple syrup is enough to make me weep.

that reminds me that there is a maple cider I like. I have not had it in some time and it is pretty sweet but it is still a reasonable drink. It is called Crispin "The Saint".
Maybe i should not review angry but I really don't like the knob. They charge so much for it for no good reason. Some like it I guess but I am giving my honest review.

Now we fight back and make them pay for every attack. They can't afford that. We can.

There is no way we are going to exit the ME. Our interests are too broad and we need to fight them over there or else we will be fighting them here.

I personally would not put it outside the realm of possibility that some democrats told Iran that they would not back any resolutions against their Country if they attacked the embassy to make Trump look bad. Or possibly to make Trump overreact and give them more impeachment ammo.

Sure.

Maybe if we'd sent him a couple dozen pallets of freshly printed American currency under cover of darkness at a remote airfield, he'd have backed off the IED attacks for a week or two and we'd have "Peace in these 10 minutes" like we had under President Bozo Bigears.

________________

That's a pretty accurate description of the Obama years, except he left out the part where Obama used plane loads of our cash and gold, and invited terrorist fucks to be feted in the White House, in his efforts to appease the Iranians into not killing us and our allies.

Obama's "lets be friends" strategy did nothing but further embolden these vicious freaks, and our money helped finance their continuing terrorist activities.

There's only one way to deal with people like this, and Trump clearly understands that. Thank providence that he is our president now, and not the cowardly weasel Obama, who would have apologized to the "mourners" who stormed our embassy, and invited them in for tea and cookies, before gifting them with a goody bag courtesy of U.S. taxpayers after they'd finished raping and pillaging inside.

same with cider. The "craft guys" keep trying to be innovative by adding hops, whatever that flower they keep adding to everything, and cranking up the alcohol percentage. I want my cider to taste like cider. It should be 5 percent abv and taste like apples. JMO there.

934 Yay! We killed another Middle Eastern terrorist leader, but there are 10 waiting to take his position. We need to decide what type of war we're fighting over there. If we're fighting a war of attrition then we're going way to slow, so let's go ahead and pull out the nukes, or we're fighting a war for the hearts and the minds.

We're doing a really poor job of that one too. We're basically fighting the Crusades over again. They went over fought, took territory and built crusader forts, little pieces of Europe where they lived, but generally they didn't change anything outside those forts. It was a hugely expensive waste of time. We aren't good at forced conversion, but Muslims are. We are not prepared to do it the way they do it. So we're stuck with this impossible task that we have no idea how to complete.
