Open Thread | So Now, Iran Has Retaliated

Well, here’s the thing. They killed the number two guy in Iran. And, they have no reason for it.

He was always a bad man. He was a bad man back when Clinton was President. But, Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama knew enough that killing him wasn’t really an option. They understood that when you attack someone like this, it doesn’t really go your way. Especially, if you have anyone with any kind of knowledge, history and RESPECT of your perspective enemy.

We don’t have a functioning State Department. Dolt45 is surrounded by idiots and Islamaphobic idiots.
I’ve been telling you – sleep on the Persians if you want to. Do it at your own peril.

So now that things haven’t turned out the way they thought it would…they’ve got Pompeo out here lying with no justifications.
Then, there is the craven Nikki Haley, who should just STFU – on General Principle.

Specifically, the former ambassador told the national television audience, “The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates. No one else in the world.”

It wasn’t a throwaway line that Haley made in the heat of the moment. On the contrary, she took pride in smearing Democratic leaders and needlessly questioning their patriotism, promoting the quote via social media.

It matters, of course, that Haley was brazenly lying. It matters that she used deliberately wrong grammar as a way of staying true to a tired tribal game. It matters that the former ambassador talks up the importance of “civility” in politics, even while falsely accusing Americans of “mourning” a terrorist’s death.

Bish, please. If you don’t get the ENTIRE Phuck Outta Here.

Many have said that Dolt45 wanted his Osama Bin Laden moment, and it’s not exactly turning out that way.

Even Netanyahu is running as fast and as far as his slithery self can go. Did you ever think you’d see the moment when Bibi could find something that he wouldn’t praise Dolt45 for? Not that he doesn’t support it, but because Iranian missiles will hit Israel far sooner than they’d hit American soil.

The raging narcissist President, senses that it’s not going well for him, so he’s gonna throw out Race Bannon to do a bullshyt speech on why we attacked Iran. Now, think on this….he didn’t do any National Address…and, it’s been how many days? And, we have to wait how many more for Pence’s lying speech?

And, just to keep count, we’ve had the SIXTH high level person from the Pentagon to resign in short order. At what point will the MSM FINALLY focus on this story, and what these resignations are telling us about what’s happening at the Pentagon?

These are perilous times. The Republican Party is full of cowards, and this should never be forgotten. They all need to be held accountable for their basic fundamental betrayal of this country in the era of Dolt45.

Now that the Iranians have retaliated …what will happen next? We don’t have any rational actors on our side.

    Everyone who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton in November 2016 is responsible for the conflict with Iran, even if they are standing on the street with a “No War on Iran” sign today.

    Tulsi Gabbard called Hillary Clinton the queen of warmongers. Then she voted “present” on Trump’s impeachment articles.

    Susan Sarandon told us that Hillary was “more dangerous” than Trump.

    I will never understand the mentality of LGBTQ millennials who supported Liz Warren, a Regan apologist over Kamala Harris despite her long history of standing up for the LGBTQ rights. White LGBTQ millennials are ungrateful and uninformed as fcuk.

    US “nationalists” seem to not understand that other countries also have nationalisms and hardliners who use external threats to marginalize their critics and consolidate power. They don’t get it because pride makes them lie to themselves about why their opposition exists.

    And keep in mind that Dick Cheney thought that low yield nuclear weapons would work well in Iran.

    There’s a lot of blame to pass around: the majority of white people who voted for Trump, etc. But a special extra pissy fvck you to Jill Stein voters tonight.

    I live in a state where, when you finish your obligation to the state, you just fill out a voter registration form and ……..poof, once it’s processed, you are a registered voter. It ain’t hard. Or ‘complicated’.

    Short answer, 63 million Americans thought it was time to “blow things up” in response to having an African American president for eight years.

    God help us.

    I guess it would have been some kind of miracle if we had been able to get rid of Trump before he started an international catastrophe.

    So this deranged monster-fool will be allowed to stay in office and run for re-election?

    We’re testing our resilience and we’re losing.
