    Especially you. Everything you've ever posted is on the table, so to speak. As is mine.
    Lol you think I as a random citizen of a 330 million person population think I will be targeted? No, just no. It's dumb to run around scared like that.

          You're not that random.

            They tried to play diplomats at the 13th hour, and failed miserably.

            As usual.

              Your insane if you think they have enough terrorist assets to do the same type of damage as military assets.

              I am not suggesting we walk away Scott free but that is some terrible logic.

                In a universe that does not make sense,

                why should I, fractally?

                Maybe, I should just mirror the lack of sense,

                and at best strive for utility to those pursuits that I entertain as my own Peter Pan.

                I was always a cocky boy, and still am.

                Then again, I am also Captain Hook.

                At our end, we know Dark is Right.

                But we still Rage, Rage, against the Dying of the Light.

                And learned too late, we grieved it on its way.

                But in all cases, Dying would be an awfully Big Adventure.

                So, that is the game, to play, to dance, to sing, to fight, to love,

                to go on side adventures,

                and then to die.

                To rest, perchance to dream, but to hold nothing back as we slide into home.

                  Brazil is the 13th strongest military.

                  Imagine, if you will...the 82nd Airborne dropping into Brazil.

                  Terrorists? Who the fuck knows where they are.

                    Well fuck. I honestly and truly thought the whole thing would blow over and be just saber rattling.

                      The food is pretty good.

                      Many Iranians make homemade wine and beer in secret in their basements.

                      What is not to love about the Iranian people?

                      Governments, well, they all leave something to be desired,

                      and are at best not quite fresh fish.

                      We we count a couple of families as friends and a couple more co-workers years past. Some still go to the home country to visit. Some don't dare.

                        This was a long time coming,

                        and Obama did nothing but enable and delay it.

                        We're in a fight.

                        Let's win it, now.
                        You left out "Cheetolini". My current favorite. Thanks Dung.

                          TBH if we had just smoked Suleimani and not said shit about who did it or why, Iran would maybe have kept the war in the shadows and Iraq would have been happy with that too. They are if anything more obsessed with their masculinity than Trump, so they needed to save face. Instead Trump did Trump things, so here we are. Neither side is likely to seek de-escalation for the moment. I'd like to point out that Iran's borders include Afghanistan and Iraq though, so in terms of bullying we are pretty well set. But they are clearly hoping a limited hot war with the U.S. will galvanize their populace and cool down their domestic issues for a bit, so things are probably going to get interesting. They likely think this will make us look even worse and hopefully speed our exit from Iraq and Afghanistan so they can get back to taking over both governments. Nobody in the U.S. has much stomach for regime change in yet another country, so they are limited to worrying about a very unlikely scenario where the U.S. goes in, fucks them up, and leaves without footing the 20+ year repair bill.

                              I mean I'm all for going in and wrecking the shit out of some of Iran's nuclear weapons facilities and maybe hitting some strategic targets in their capitol, but unless the populace rises up with us and bears most of the burden, nooope.

                                A lot of you are contemplating this as an abstract action because it will not affect you personally.

                                Some of us have friends that will likely be deployed if boots hit the ground over there.

                                We are not in favor of being in country. Killer drones and the surgical application of the “blade missile” only please.
                                Shut the hell up and train.
