Think US Media Won't Help Lead Nation Into War With Iran Based on Flimsy or False Intelligence? Looks Like They Already Are

I was in love with that song. Thankyou.

I agree. Those polls though show that he is winning (massively) with older voters, and those polls are heavily slanted towards older voters. Those older voters watch the dominant media, and so it isn’t surprising that they would be attracted to a horrific candidate like him.

With so many ways of making fake videos, it’s very foolish to believe anything that Pompeo/Bolton/Trump/Republicans spew out.

Verify! Verify! Verify! And then verify again!

Actually, Goering, is over-stating the case.

“the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders — when the people are held in an EMPIRE” — which of course the Nazi Empire was.

“tell(ing) them they are being attacked and should denounce the (reasonable people) for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger… (only) works in an Empire” — which of course the Nazi Empire, the Japanese Empire, the Soviet Empire, the British Empire, the French Empire … were all EMPIRES.

This is why the late great Jewish intellectual, Hannah Arendt, warned her own German people that:

“Empire abroad entails tyranny (and looting) at home”

People, who have experienced the tyranny, deceit, propaganda, massive depredation, and looting of themselves as domestic citizen/‘subjects’ of a ruling-elite super-wealthy ‘internal’ Empire — always learn Arendt’s lesson of EMPIRE controlling them as pawns — and they always, after the collapse, and if they survive, will “never forget” that EMPIRE is a death-like experience, and will never again allow themselves, their children, their grand-children, nor their country to be taken over by an EMPIRE again.

Unfortunately, ‘we the American people’ had not experienced an ‘internal’ and domestic EMPIRE — and thus have not been inoculated against, nor even sense this highly disguised faux-Emperor Trumpius I and the Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire that has forced America into stage IV cancerous metastasis of EMPIRE today.

We must all WakeTF-up fast and

DUMP
EMPEROR
TRUMP

“We can’t be an Empire”

Remember, like it was burned into the back of your brain — when you go into the voting booth, you have only one of two levers you can pull — one for democracy and one for EMPIRE. Don’t ever even think about voting for EMPIRE if you love your kids and country.

America has been positively salvating for decades to have a war against Iran. This action bears all the hall marks of yet another false flag operation by America. Just who are the terrorists in the world.

The first “expert” CNN interviewed was a Saudi official (I think it was the Ambassador since he was in CNN studio.) the other guest did not question the official version even though the evidence was not even released yet.

I don’t have cable and am glad I don’t. Just want to point out that NBC News’s website leads with the Japanese owner’s claim that something flew into the ship.

Hi August:
LOL, at you comment that Bolton, Pompeo and Trump) are " a trio of big dicks."
who want to start a war.
LOL, to be explicit and possibly really sexist. : ) I don’t think that they have big dicks----but they seem to belong to that group of strange people who believe that killing loads of men, women and children, will actually make their dicks bigger.
No—the best sex comes from the best brains------technique and caring ----not size is what matters.
I do however, think that these 3 have somehow managed to suffer from shrunken brain syndrome ----which occurs when any kind of reasonable thought is neglected! : )

War is great for our economy. The most profitable business on earth is war, and American taxpayers pay 60 cents for every federal tax dollar the government collects on the military-industrial-surveillance-prison-police state complex. The Republican war profiteer friends of Trump and his administration are drooling in anticipation of their massive profits to come from a war with Iran. Killing Muslims is even more fun for them then our genocide of our own Native Americans, and at least as profitable, if not more so. Every dollar bill in America is soaked in innocent, and some guilty human blood! Please join Veterans for Peace or some other antiwar organization and call your elected officials to stop this unnecessary war with Iran. Bolton promised a cheering crowd of war profiteers a war with Iran by 2019. Bolton doesn’t want to let them down. Trump wants war because it is much harder to impeach a wartime President. I say Pelosi must start impeachment hearings now or democrats might as well forget it and go home. If Pelosi doesn’t start impeachment soon, I’m voting for the Green Party and to hell with wimpy democrats. Wimpy democrats are almost as bad as evil republicans, who needs either of them! I’m fed up! This is sick! Where can I go on earth where the government isn’t a total joke? There must be SOMEPLACE decent to live on earth! Or do I have to leave earth and take over my own safer planet? ET come and save me, I want to go home with you!

Just for laughs, let’s assume that the Trump administration isn’t lying (really a stretch). This is an attack on two Japanese tankers so why is it 'murikkkas responsibility to respond? Abe was just in Iran so he knows who to talk to or yell at. He does not need US help. He could ask for it, but hasn’t, so leave it to the diplomats to work out. Just because the US has the biggest military hammer, they treat everything like a nail.

This is a stubborn myth that is touted by politicians and generals but dismissed as untrue by economic models using actual data.

Borat had it right when he said in the movie Borat that he “support America’s war OF terror.” Yes, it is a war OF terror, not a war against terror, and our American government officials, along with our Israeli, Saudi, and UAE, and perhaps other friends left unnamed are the real war mongering, war profiteering terrorists! Iran just wants to be left alone, but America just cannot ever leave them alone! Ever notice how America keeps fomenting a war with Iran and with other Muslim countries that do NOT have any active nuclear weapons programs, while during the entire same period of time over many decades we have NEVER considered any military action against North Korea who has and still does have an active nuclear program? We have neglected North Korea to the point that now they actually do have long range nuclear missiles that CAN actually incinerate mainland America and they have even expressed a willingness and a desire to do so, while neither Iraq or Iran ever have even come close to ever doing so and have little to no desire to do so, especially if we would only stop provoking them! Read the real history of Iran and you can clearly see our bullying and abuse of Iran and its democratically elected government where members of the American government secretly and illegally assassinated the entire Iranian government in 1952 and forced an American puppet dictator on Iran for thirty years and then our media demonized them for taking American hostages which they only did so that we would take this horrible right wing phony Shah American puppet dictator away and give them back their freedom! Our government has been using our entire press to misinform us, lie to us, and brainwash us, as well as to refuse to properly inform us for many many decades. I figured it out in 1979! I found out the truth about Iran at 1 A.M. when some brave soul in the media put on a documentary of the history of Iran, and then I knew exactly why they had taken the hostages and why they were right to do so! Most Americans still believe all of the lies about Iran who is a traditional Shi’a, moderate Muslim country and they are NOT terrorists at all and they do NOT want to attack Israel or America or anyone else that is not harming them directly. Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo are just fomenting unnecessary war as expected. Even Late Night with John Stewart and Dana Carvey knew what Bolton was up to last year when Carvey impersonated Bolton and his mustache. Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo are not fooling anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled.

Freedom of the press in America?! Bah, total nonsense! We are all slaves and chattel in a massive evil oliogharchy and if we don’t all get busy real soon it will be too late. It might even be too late already. But I don’t believe in ever giving up hope, so we must fight this every way we can. This is because the lost causes are always the only ones that are really worth fighting for!

Unfortunately, too many people never got the memo that correlation does not imply causality.

Seriously, though. Isn’t the act of removing a mine evidence of cooperation?
