Evidence? We ain’t got no evidence. We don’t have to show you any stinkin’ evidence!

90% of the story is the prepackaged, tripwire related, reaction.

I can’t wait to see how many “resistance” democrats line up behind Trump to condemn Iran since, when it comes to war and aggression, there isn’t much opposition in congress!

Tulsi would be good to hear from, though she has no chance now, or, as George W Bush would say (Hitler too), “What are our troops going to think?”

Jail the refugees. Bomb the children. Save the oil.

P.S, At least it’s not as bad as the 911 scam was. So far, that is.

OK let’s go: are any of the Democrats going to call out these war criminals, or are we going to get a replay of Vietnam, Iraq, etc. etc.? This is going to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Waggin’ the dog? Start a war and get us in so deep that come the 2020 election we’ll be urged to “stay the course”?

Less credible blowhards than Pompeo and Bolton are impossible to find.

And the d-party establishment will line up behind them. Frankly, so will many of the supposedly liberal d-party contingent. Can’t look like we’re soft on terrorists, now can we?

Agreed. At least a good portion of the populace are quick to realize that this “Iran attack” is bullshit.

Pompeo’s suit must be made with shit-proof stitching. Three-hundred pounds of the stuff held in with nowhere to escape butt his upper anus…

We need a mass of people carrying signs that say, “The Iranian people are our friends.”

From: “Preparing for the Great Waves of Change”… newmessage.org

The collapsing US Empire is putting the entire world in great danger…The frontmen Trump, Bolton & Pompeo and the ones behind them who are really in charge are pushing for war on many fronts…The only brightside of WW-3 will be the collapse of the US Empire’s military machine…hopefully without a nuclear weapons exchange…

Hi EdsNote… LOL, wagging the dog --again, as so many are saying. This stupid war excuse has been going on on since “Remember the Maine.”
Wow this excuse has been used so many times, it’s so old and worn out that it’s more like “wagging the corpse,” of an old, decomposing, and unbelievably and stupid recycled war idea!

Oh yeah, Pompeo—how’s that Venezuela War working out for you. Yep, Syria didn’t fall ether----------------------one thing IS sadly true---- JUST ANYONE can be President or in the military or in the spy business in America.

We know the fascist’s playbook. Insufficient provocation. They will say something even more outrageous tomorrow. Expect more escalation.

The response from the corporate media is so telling---------No Mr. Pompeo the first SUSPECT is the US CORPORATE MILITARY POLICE STATE! And Israel right up there as SUSPECT no. 2 .

And lets be clear -----Sanctions against Iran are an act of war. But this looks exactly like a false flag. The US gov lied to get into the Vietnam war- false flag---- and the Iraq war–another false flag–WOULDN’T THE FIRST QUESTION BE ON ANY REAL REPORTERS MIND----IS THE US BEHIND THESE ATTACKS???
