    Well, the genie is out of that fucking bottle. We hit them, they hit us. Trump says "All is well" on twitter but we'll be waiting to see how many casualties there are. I don't know what kind of early warning system is present so maybe they evacuated the area in time.

    So, to reiterate, before we get casualty numbers was this worth killing Suliemani? I do not believe it. Trump isn't up to the this job. We made it 40 years since military tensions with Iran were this high and Trump came into this with a disarmament treaty that he burned immediately and now we've offically exchanged missile fire.

    What we all knew from the beginning remains true. He's an idiot, he can't do the job. Expert advice doesn't do any good if the person receiving it can't understand it. The office of the POTUS is far too powerful and there is too little to be done to reign him in despite promises of a vague intangible Deep State opposition.

      We'll see.

      Of course, we, in the U.S., would all like a conflict with zero US casualties, zero civilian casualties...

      In fact, it would be damn convenient if the Iranian dissidents rose up and kicked the asses of their own tyrannical government, and Iran became a secular-law-regardless-of-personal-religion-beacon-of-light-and-civilization-and-learning-to-the-world.

      But, in any fight, I don't need to tell you:

      it is hard to keep the Marines out of a real fight, if it goes there.

      But, we'll have to see where this situation goes.

        Hindsight is a post menopausal bitch.

        On other other hand, that is one water sack I am glad was been given a ticket to paradise.

        We're in a fight now.

        It is the go forward that matters.

            Well, now you know how I feel about Bashir Al Assad and Vladimir Putin. Each one of them is worse than Suliemani on any day.

                You don't speak for "all".

                "forty years since military tensions with Iran were this high"

                Go back and look at those forty years. Iran has become emboldened over the decades. Emboldened to kill a great many people in many countries. Because, despite their attacks, we did nothing. To the point another embassy was hit.

                It wasn't the most measured response but it was righteous. Calm down and see what the next couple of weeks bring. You can't keep straight the sequence of recent events or who was the aggressor.

                  I don't speak for anyone but myself. I wasn't under the impression that anyone actually thought Trump was smart enough to do this job however.

                  I remember the sequence.

                  Iranian backed militia killed a 23 year old soldier in Iraq.

                  We struck the Iranian militia.

                  The Iranian backed Shiite militia overran the US embassy in Iraq but couldn't gain entry, there were no casualties and no diplomats were present. Embassy filled with US Marines ready and waiting but no shots were exchanged.

                  In retaliation we killed Iran's #2 psychopath with a drone strike.

                  Iran responded by carpet bombing two US bases with as yet unknown numbers of US casualties. IF these bases were not evacuated, there could be hundreds of casaultiies.


                  We don't know yet if there are any casualties but if it's bad then we're at fucking war.

                    Well, Dungity-Do, US service people casualties have been less per year on average

                    in the Cheetolini administration then the Menthol Loosey administration.

                    We'll see if the current conflict changes that average or not.

                    Before the Internet Ignoramous generation asks, no I am not going to provide a link yet,

                    because none of you mean anything to me.

                    Post your own damn links, if you care so much about them.

                        That is what I heard, man.

                        I don't know, but I have been keeping a look out for it.

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

                            Despite the way it may seem, I am 100% there with you. I would 100% like their to be 0 action. If their is may it be as tight and narrow as possible.

                                Very likely to be very unrelated but
