Well, they (trump and his minions) REALLY are total fucking morons, and completely blood thirsty lunatics! The sooner they are gone the better, although, who knows what will come after. Our beloved USA is nowhere even remotely close to what the MYTH of the US, as we all have heard our entire lives, really is. Pretty well sucks that bullshit, feel good propaganda was the pablum fed to us as kids.

Enjoy! Iran has a sophisticated and extensive network of surrogates that will almost certainly be able to retaliate here and likely in Israel, Saudi, and anywhere else stupid enough to join this party.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before Trump got in line and started a war of his own. This will make the establishment happy and I’m sure he’s hoping they finally get off his case.

Edit: And, oh ,yeah, Russia and China ain’t going to sit on the sidelines for this one. They simply can’t afford to any more.

We all are aware that Trump is a lifelong criminal, a grifter, a liar and a psychopath. I suppose it was inevitable that he also would become a murderer. Goaded by the war mongering lunatic, Bolton, it was just a matter of time before this despicable excuse for a human being would start a war. But doesn’t the House of Representatives have something to say about going to war? Why isn’t someone in the government stepping up to stop this catastrophic move? Why isn’t someone stepping forward to try to save all of the lives, both American and Iranian, that are going to be lost?

It’s all about the money. You know. Trump’s and Kushner’s financing. Why do you think the first foreign trip for Dumpty was to Saudi Arabia? And then Israel.

Now the Saudi’s are calling in a favor after their (the Saudi’s) attacks on the tankers.

Once again, Donald does what Bibi tells him to do.

This country is in a very sad situation. The government has failed, formally and officially. The military industrial complex cannot be constrained by the government.

just a brief note: this is not “his” nation - - just a three letter word, but a world of difference. He is OUR president, his job and task is to SERVE the nation and we now witness a situation that is thoroughly documented as being something increasingly other than Constitutional “democracy”.

Will we tighten our belts and engage the admonitions of various ‘founders’ to form a united and diversified response to recover OUR RESOURCES; OUR TIME; OUR COMMUNITIES; OUR PATH; OUR FUTURES AND our souls?

The Massive Bombing Campaign should be at the White House when they’re all in there.

It all boils down to one fact. Those in power want Iran’s huge oil reserves.

The madmen and morons are in control of the asylum and together with those pulling their strings foment war but will not be the ones in the bullseye of war and death, as usual.

Congress abdicated their sworn Constitutional responsibilities to serve and kowtow to these madmen - trump, bolton, pompeo, Pentagon brass, et al. evil minds with zero moral compass or wisdom! Are there no voices willing to stand against this insanity?..apparently not, except for a few.

The puppet-masters pulling the strings of the idiots, liars,and warmongers of this imperial WH have agenda’s to foment war against Iran (as before) at any cost…again absent real costs to themselves or their foreign and domestic puppet-masters

Iran has been a target of the US and its flunky UK since the 1953 coup against democratically-elected Mohammed Mossaddegh,. That aggression now morphed into “sanctions” and other financial/economic attacks against the Persian people and nation.

Our so-called leaders are completely mental, our so-called “allies” pathological killers, our mass-media sold-out - compliant and complicit lap-dogs parroting official lies and deceptions, and Congress a nest of ignorance, stupidity, cowardice, traitors, many devoted to foreign power in the most treasonous way - supporting war.for the “favored nation” - Israel - as Geo. Washington warned in his Farewell Speech - " passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils

“Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.”
“War is in fact the true nurse of executive aggrandizement”
“ambition, avarice, vanity, the honorable or venal love of fame, are all in conspiracy against the desire and duty of peace”. - James Madison

The authorization by Congress in Oct 2002 for Bush and his war pigs to launch a war against Iraq was a significant failure to adhere to the War Powers Resolution of 1973. Since then, the ability to declare war has increasingly shifted from Congress, where it belongs, to the Executive Branch. These current Rethug scum have demonstrated quite clearly that they have no respect for the Constitution when it gets in the way of their hideous right-wing agenda of sacking this country and going to war for very questionable reasons. The Neo-con fantasy of trash like Bolton, Pompeo, Miller and Abrams is now overt and Trumpo the Klown will use this hoped for “war” to distract the populace away from his corruption and incompetency and the calls for his impeachment and prosecution. He probably even hopes that he will come off as some kind of victorious leader against this new “enemy” and win the election next year.
The reason that this could turn into Trump’s ultimate clusterfuck is that Iran will be a much different foe than Iraq was and I can see this escalating into a military action that makes use of nuclear weapons. Of course, much of the M$M will be willing shills for this obscenity as they know the ratings and the ad revenues will be huge just like they were in 2003.
I am profoundly ashamed of the United States and the level to which we have sunk under this Orange Pustule and his fellow gangsters.

I hope that China and Russia don’t sit on the sidelines, as someone has to stop this evil empire from destroying what is left of the planet. It will take a global effort, similar to WW2, to stop the ruthless wars-for-profit that the U.S. is promoting. We can start here at home encouraging every youth to avoid military service. We must protest in large numbers. We must educate everyone we know about the real and present danger that corporate America has sowed. It will be a tough fight as corporate America is willing to sacrifice every single American to hold on to power.

We’re not tough enough, committed enough, nor brave enough to do any of this. If we’re reduced to marching–again–then it’s already over.

Nevertheless, I agree with the spirit of your post, for sure.

But it ain’t happening from inside the cage.

For now American aggression focuses on Iran. But there is a bigger, more sinister plan.
From the following article:
‘Earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence, addressing the graduation class at West Point, predicted war in the Pacific, Europe and the Americas within the graduates lifetime.’
‘Eighty-nine percent of Senate Democrats voted to pass the most recent defense budget ($ 716 billion). whose explicit aim is to prepare the US military for “great power conflict” with Russia and China.’

Trump, Bolton, Pompeo, these folks do not work for a majority of American’s nor do they work on behalf of the constitution or America’s best interests, they work for Israel, Saudi Arabia, war profiteers, evangelical maniacs and the racist element.

Again , while this latest drive to war is during the administration of Donald Trump , it in fact a continuation of the series of wars planned decades ago the targets which were identified by General Wesley Clark.It is NOT coincidence that every country he identified is under attack either directly or by proxy.

Outside of the USA the vast majority of Countries (if not all) know the Oil tanker incident a hoax or a false flag. Countries that line up behind the USA on this matter will show themselves as being lickspittles and frauds. They will be unable to use the cover of “faulty intelligence” as they did with the Iraq and Libyan wars.

Outside of Tulsi Gabbard , Gravel and Bernie Sanders, I see every other potential candidate for President from the Democratic Party continuing this policy.
