I thought that war with Iran was the reason Fox News and the neocons backed Trump in the first place.

Parsi said Sunday night that a former U.S. military official told him that Trump starting a war with Iran is “probable.”

Who was the U.S. military official? A five star General? If so, let’s hope he refuses to follow Trump’s orders, because congress has abdicated their Constitutional responsibility to declare wars, which in my view… amounts to treason.

I wish that someone would seriously consider sedating 45 for the next few weeks…

Parsi said a “former” official. So redundant.

Lock him up.

Who said, “No one is above the law.” ?Trump should be removed for election tampering and a hundred other misdeeds that were clearly illegal. There must be a mechanism for replacing an unfit President before he can use his power to put the U.S. in jeapardy.

Wow, the anti-Trump conspiracy widens even more! “… all 10 living former defense secretaries—including former Trump officials James Mattis and Mark Esper, along with Iraq War architects Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld—on Sunday penned an op-ed rebuking Trump.”

Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld too! Secret communist anarchist baby-killers, just like the Supreme Court and all the rest of them! Stand strong! /s

Yeah, I guess Cheney thinks being of the same ilk as Trump has lost its charm.

Well, Iran could sink the sitting duck aircraft carrier, or Iran could wait and let it bomb them. It’s a tough position. One hopes the military will get the hell out of there…is there ANY representation of the ‘will of the people’ left in our democracy?

Smoke and propaganda mirrors, but nothing genuine.

Now he’s got some pissed off sailors and pilots on his hands aboard the Nimitz. Their deployment was excessive as it is.

This speaks not entirely to Trump, but the ability of the President to unilaterally make war; which according to the Constitution is the sole province of Congress. Congress, of course, has abdicated its responsibilities and let numerous Presidents get away with it.

Now that we have floridly delusional person in the White House, it is obvious the inherent danger in this very bad and irresponsible habit; and it’s time to remedy it permanently.

It seems the American people, ably assisted by the MSM, are incapable of selecting a competent and rational leader. Such awesome responsibility needs to be spread out.

Cheney probably realizes Iran is much more of a opponent than Iraq; or maybe he realizes he made a boo boo.

Two party system sucks for those that want genuine citizen input.

Dono, but he has one foot in the grave, so, maybe he is getting a bit reflective.

NO idea if this is legit or not but interesting - especially if it is.
