    Iran War now? Yea or nay?

    Nay, I don't want war with Trump involved in it.

    This was an idiot move whether or not Suleimani and Iran had it coming. They did, but armed conflict with the Orange dumpster fire as QB can't end well.

    The Iranians will strike back. Their regime is run on macho revenge fantasies and 50 year old grudges.

      Trump responded to the Embassy attack a helluva lot better than Clinton / Obama responded to Benghazi.

      But your dislike of Trump should have nothing to do with the reasons not to want another war in the Middle East.

      There are many other real reasons not to want another fricking war in the Middle East.

      Waste of money.

      Loss of life.

      Never ending money and blood pit...

        All of that. The Benghazi attack was ISIS who used a protest as cover for the attack. It's not just dislike, it's distrust. I think we're going into this with the worst possible leadership.

          Than Obama, Bush Jr, Bill Clinton, Reagan, and Carter?

          I'll give you a pass on Bush Sr, because despite his other flaws he has at least a brain in that area.

          But the rest were horrible as leaders (and Bush Sr was no prize as a leader, either).

          Carter may have had a real conscience, but he was an ineffective leader.

          Bush Jr may have a had a real conscience or not, but we will never know because he was a moron.

          The rest were straight up worthless whores - and Bush Jr may or may not have been smart enough to be a whore but was just worthless, and Darth Cheney more than made up for any lack of whoreness due to lack of intelligence that Bush Jr had.

          Of course, Darth Cheney had nothing on Darth Hillary.

            As long as the US government ignores our previous asshole behavior destroying their democracy the US policies are based on a foundation of bullshit. Obama, HRC, Eisenhower, Trump - it’s all the same game. They all are giving Dulles blow jobs.

              I can prove that statement, by the way...

              The rogues gallery of past Presidents I listed above drug us into endless and mind boggling expensive Middle East conflicts, in each of their Presidencies,

              So by definition, they were all proven fuck ups.

                I'd trust Santa Ana's wooden leg over Trump. This escalation appears reckless and perfectly designed to draw the US into inevitable war with Iran.

                  We are already fighting them in Syria.
                  Proxy warring for the win.
                  Ultimately the war isn't the problem, its the occupation.
                  Its always the damn occupation that is the problem.
                  Can we just give Iran to Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq or ISIS?

                      Suliemani was a shitbag bastard but now we've thrown the entire region into chaos. Is there a military plan now or a political one? If so, whose plan and what is it?

                        Well hell. Let us just pay no heed to the carving up of the region of the Middle East after WWI.

                        We're but one card in that dirty played deck. I suggest some here do an attempt to discern history without bias. This starts by actually doing studying.

                        I am not an apologist for where this country has done wrong. Here, there and everywhere. But, conquest, influence and other means to better or enrich your own is as old as the history of man.

                        There is a lot of shit at play in the region. There are no simple solutions. Fuck Iran. It will implode eventually. This is a country with the legacy of the great Persian empire. Wrest the country from the control of the Islamist fundamentalists and the people will rejoice. We don't have to attack but merely support the populace.

                        Then again, I don't see them detaining a couple of boats of Navy Seals, confiscating their equipment and posturing for the world while the Orange One is Commander in Chief.

                        Anyone remember that?

                          Trump's campaign secretary Kayleigh McEnany says the killing of Soleimani is the "greatest foreign policy accomplishment, I would say, of the decade if not our lifetime".

                          Are you sick of this ride yet?

                            And Caesar's spirit, raging for revenge,
                            With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
                            Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
                            Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war,
                            That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
                            With carrion men, groaning for burial.

                            This will get much worse before it gets better.

                              Yeah that was done a bit poorly with little regard tribal alliances, religious cultism, and other things.
                              Though at the same time it has allowed no great empires to come back out of the Middle East much to benefit of everyone else, and has helped them not control energy policy quite as much till they figured that OPEC shit out

                              The biggest problem I always see is people try and play captain hind sight and apply modern sensibilities to history without applying any sort of context of the time.
                              Then they want to add layers of idealism to it and ignore the fact that we are tribal by nature and nations are in the habit of doing what is good for their tribe.

                              Fuck it I AM, and I will own that shit. This country has done good, at has done bad, it has great parts to it, and some things we still need to work on.
                              But this country is still better than any other country on this planet I have been to. I simply wouldn't live anywhere else, and with my skill set I could live anywhere.
