@2bitsEvery time Trump does something terrible he has a tweet in his past
that makes him a total hypocrite and exposes the way he himself thinks. Donald J. TrumpIn order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a
war with Iran.1:48 PM · Nov 29, 2011
All it would take is a USA aircraft carrier bumping into an Iranian fishing boat
on a dark night and we would have a major war on our hands. The world would not
be sympathetic to us but they aren't anyway. Trump's tearing up the
Iranian nuclear agreement is another example of a right-wing talking point that
will prove to have disastrous real-world consequences.
2 bits - Cottonwood Heights, UTMay 13, 2019 3:18 p.m.I worry that
somebody in the media or our government could be so anxious for something bad to
happen as the election gets closer, that they would encourage Iran to do
something provocative (because it benefits their political agenda if they can
make the President look bad).And yes, I worried about the same thing
when Obama was President and Rs would do anything to get him out too.Some people don't care what happens to America, just as long as their
party wins.====You have just done an excellent job of
describing very accurately the concerns many of us have for actions of trump and
his GOP enablers. Just change a few names and you'll be right on.
It was reported this morning that the White House has acknowledged it is working
with the Pentagon on plans to send 120,000 U.S. military members to the Middle
East.Looks like the EU has some good reasons for concern.
old manI have to laugh about your comment concerning truth when I think of
some of the whoppers coming from nancy, BO, and the DNC.if the
Europeans are so worried about iran, they shouldn't be trying to prop up
its economy. as far as adventurism goes, ask the Neville Chamberlain how well
appeasement worked out. Not that I am advocating aggression, only a strong
position - One has to wonder how history would be different had Chamberlain had
a spine - but he was dying of cancer at the time, so we should cut him some
slack. What if Chamberlain and the French had reacted strongly when hitler first
crossed the Rhine, rather than shrugged their shoulders and granted him a fait

Silo, face it, there are some people among us who -- like their hero in the
White House -- have no regard whatsoever for facts or truth. I find
myself wondering if somehow in the twisted world of djt, there's a
perverse desire to add a war to his "legacy?"Wouldn't
that give a real boost to his ego if he could think that he really had been the
"commander in chief" of our military? Generalissimo
Bonespurs. Just think how much that could mean to someone with such a warped
and powerful ego.

He's like Trump. He thinks if you tell a lie enough times, people will
believe it. That probably works with Trump supporters but the rest of the world

With Bolten there is no accidental war.
The warning includes foolish tweets, tweet storms and tweeting without
consulting anyone or thinking about the consequences.
"By accident" Not a chance. The US has troops right at their border, not
the other way around. What did Iran do? No clue, it was trump who pulled
out of the agreement. This would be another distraction for trump and
ultimately another costly and lost war for the US.From Korea to today, the
US hasn't won a war where they invaded another country on the other side of
the world. Why does the war party still think victory comes easy?
The only winners in another long costly war are the military contractors and the
politicians they pay. At the expense of American lives and our security. There
isn't a situation, either globally or domestic, that Trump can't make
A timely caution from the U.K. on the perils of adventurism. Wars break out and
assume a life of their own drawing nations into a rapidly expanding fray the
antagonists find out find out they can't contain. Who would have thought
that a jurisdiction dispute between Austria and Serbia in 1914 would explode
into what we now know as World War I?
Re: Ralph Salt Lake City.I agree with your sarcastic comment.The same people who pushed us into preemptively attacking Iraq seem to
be behind the drum beat to attack Iran.My question is why?Many say the total cost of the Iraq war is upwards of three trillion
dollars.We borrowed this money, adding it to our national debt to get rid
of Saddam.What part of “We Can Not Afford Another Middle
Eastern War” do they not understand?Rather than borrowing the
money from China to fight this war let’s raise taxes for a pay as you go
war and see how much support it will have.My opinion a simple
“False Flag” operation will start the next war there.Who
or which countries or country would benefit from our attacking Iran?Any guesses?
This would make John Bolton so, so sad! Golly, John Bolton doesn't want a
war with Iran. Honest!
