Oh good, let’s get another war started spilling Americans’ blood and spending taxpayers’ money. Has not 20 years, thousands of lives lost, 10’s of thousands wounded and 2 trillion dollars spent taught the war hawks anything?
Same war, nothing new. We just wiped a poo-stain off the toilet seat.

Looking back I find this Drudge headline insightful.

“Iran Defiant. Can’t do a ——— thing”


Apparently Kerry was giving bad advice.

House will vote on resolution limiting Trump's actions against Iran.

I'm sure if the House shows an olive branch to Iran, Iran will not take advantage of it. Good to get all this on the record before the House elections in 2020.

And if Iran does take advantage of Trump's restrictions, it will be Trump's fault.

Imagine if there were a heavy weapon that could be dropped from space, laugh at re-entry, and strike in a precision manner and penetrate the earth to amazing depths. We may get to see something like that soon. Or maybe we'll never know what happened when it does.

US Marines sent a letter to Iraq government that it is withdrawing our forces from Iraq.

Khamenei shaken by Trump’s actions. Did not expect it from Trump.

I certainly remember Trump’s words to Iran over the last few years.

Not red line Obama.

Here's a link to a video from 04Nov2019, two months before Soleimani went ashes to ashes:

I may not have been very old at the time, but I do remember the hostage crisis on the news, and the Shah being deposed by Ayatollah Khomeini and his radical Islamist minions. So, yeah, I agree with that meme 100%. Not one thing has changed really in all those years...except now one really, really bad guy who held direct responsibility for the deaths of untold numbers of folks, including hundreds of American servicemen and women, is now dead. And I have zero problem with him being dead, either.

Missiles target US forces in Iraq.

Too large for Trump to ignore.

A shame. Trump is not Obama.

I understand disagreeing w the president, BUT agreeing to kill your president... how is that not a threat ??
