House Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the White House on Mideast policy, meeting with Syria's leader Wednesday and insisting "the road to Damascus is a road to peace." The Bush administration criticized the visit, saying she was following a road lined with victims of terror.
Vice President Dick Cheney said Pelosi was rewarding a "bad actor" in the Mideast. The tough White House response highlighted the clash between the administration and congressional Democrats, who have stepped up their push for change in U.S. policy in the Mideast and the Iraq war.
Washington accuses Syria of supporting terror for its backing of the militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah. It also says Syria is fueling Iraq's violence by allowing Sunni insurgents to operate from its territory and is destabilizing the Lebanese government.
The Bush administration has rejected direct talks with Damascus until its changes its ways. But Democrats — and some Republicans — say the refusal of dialogue has closed doors to possible progress in resolving Mideast crises.
Pelosi and a delegation of five congressional Democrats and Ohio Republican Dave Hobson met for three hours with Assad, including a lunch with him in Damascus' historic Old City.

Technically, that was two guesses in one...
Yes because between the 4rd and the 7th things changed and that info was publicly available. I just showed you one of the places Q could have seen it.
It was in March 3, 2018 only a few days before the secret meeting that North Korea threatened the US over military drills and you want us to believe a week later Q posts a guess that a deal has been made with them?
You are too focused on the Iran deal alone. Yes, indeed, we all had some inkling that Trump would pull out of the Iran deal because the deal was bunk, and it seems he wants to undo everything Obama has done. However, what is happening is much more important than the Iran deal alone. Q's post regarding North Korea also said "Clowns Out", "Strings Cut", "We Took Control", "Iran Next". It seems he wasn't just referring to the Iran deal being next, he is referring to their regime as well. What clowns, what strings?
I don't have any opinion on that. The image I saw has no context, yet.
Pics will surface of Hussein holding AK47 in tribal attire.
One of many.
Net shut down.

I'd guess Pelosi was in 50s from the pic and the youth of her legs => 20 years ago?
The new Tehran office will be led by partners Jürgen Frodermann and Shaghayegh Smousavi from the firm’s German arm, CMS Hasche Sigle.
Frodermann specializes in international private equity and M&A transactions as well as corporate issues such as restructuring and IPOs. He has advised German-Iranian clients from Germany for many years. Smousavi is a German-Iranian partner and has legal expertise in both jurisdictions during her work for international clients.
CMS set up a task force to establish connections within Iran, following the steps taken by newly elected Iranian president Hassan Rohani, to remove the sanctions against the country.
The firm’s clients in Iran will consist of multinationals and large SMEs, including Iranian companies. CMS recently advised vehicle manufacturer Iran Khodro Diesel SSA on a deal to produce truck and automotive components with German company Daimler.
Though CMS is the first law firm to actually set up an office, a number of major law firms, including Pinsent Masons and Stephenson Harwood, have been exploring their options in Iran.

Thank you for all your posting and threads too. To answer the question YES Military Tribunals CAN bring indictments. The US and others did so during the Nuremberg trials. Yale has some great info on this
“Rule 3. Notice to Defendants
(a) The Marshal of Military Tribunals, or his duly authorized deputy, shall make service of the indictment upon a defendant in any prosecution before the Tribunal by delivering to and leaving with him (1) a true and correct copy of the indictment and of all documents lodged with the indictment, (2) a copy of Military Government Ordinance No. 7, (3) a copy of Control Council Law No. 10, and (4) a copy of these Rules of Procedure” it is not outside the realm of possibility that we could have a newer “Nuremberg” type of investigations in place.
