Worth noting that we have covered Iran history a few times in the thread (going back quite a few parts)!

1) Discussions on the original Ayatollah being an English military officer called Gavin Williamson (from memory),

2) Discussions on the British putting in place the Shah of Iran before that, in the 20s?

Isaiah 52 begins quite interestingly.


“Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean Shall no longer come to you. Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭52:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


The Great Awakening and all that.

1) Discussions on the original Ayatollah being an English military officer called Gavin Williamson (from memory)


This 2009 Forbes article mentions a William Richard Williamson, but if I understand correctly one of his sons after he became Muslim in Kashmir.

Was Khomeini's Father A Brit?



The envelope contained two documents: a Xeroxed book review from the long-defunct Illustrated London News dated Nov. 10, 1951, and titled "Arabian Adventurer. The Story of Haji Williamson;" and a May 3, 2006 Xerox of an article entitled "Who Was The Ayatollah Khomeini?" from a publication called Persian Journal.

The book review related the adventure-strewn life of a Victorian Englishman born in 1872, William Richard Williamson, who attended Clifton's preparatory school and found the discipline so distasteful that he ran off to sea as a young teenager. He sailed around on British merchant ships, hated that too, and roamed around the U.S. as a cowboy, miner, actor and the like, then roamed the world finding odd jobs from the Philippines to the Persian Gulf.



Williamson was a devout Muslim and educated his kids in religious Shiite schools under top ayatollahs. "Two of them," says the article, "Hindizadeh (meaning Indian born) and Passandieh (meaning pleasing or approved) studied well and eventually became ayatollahs in their own right. The third boy, a troublesome young man, failed to make his mark in Najaf and went to the holy city of Qom and studied under Ayatollah Boroujerdi. When family names became a requirement by law under the rule of Reza Shah (the Shah's father) the young man chose the city of his residence (Qom or Khom) and took on the name of Khomeini."

Since there’s never been a 52-star Old Glory flying in DC it’s safe to say there’s never been 51 or 52 states.

Hong Kong would be a great #51.

If we take all the foreign states that have infiltrated you'll reach 52 easily! But there is a 51st state in a way.

51st state


The phrase "51st state" sometimes has international political connotations not necessarily having to do with becoming a U.S. state. The phrase "51st state" can be used in a positive sense, meaning that a region or territory is so aligned, supportive, and conducive with the United States, that it is like a U.S. state. It can also be used in a pejorative sense, meaning an area or region is perceived to be under excessive American cultural or military influence or control.In various countries around the world, people who believe their local or national culture has become too Americanized sometimes use the term "51st state" in reference to their own countries.

Before Alaska and Hawaii became states of the United States in 1959, the corresponding expression was "the 49th state".

If Trump responding to attacks on actual Americans is construed as “going to war” then that’s the ONLY reason the US should “go to war”.

- Trump’s not going to allow MIC to control the fight.
- Iraq demanding removal of US troops is a great way to get out of ME.
- Trump has done more to get us out of ME than his predecessors.
- if a war of tomahawks, drone strikes, and cyber; USA wins that war decisively.
- cut off the $$ train to ME and any nation wanting our $$ or hardware, best be prepared to militarily protect US interests in the region.
- if it’s all about the $$$... make it about the $$ in our favor.

The American people know the difference between surgical strikes and putting 100,000 troops in harms way.

I do recommend Trump Admin/DoD/CIA put out its T100 terror targets. That way when _____ shows up on social media as blown to hell, it’s crystal clear who they were and why they were on the list. Just like FBI T10 most wanted.

That way the Dems are openly informed of active targets so they don’t need to know before a trigger is pulled.

It's also a great excuse to keep our domestic oil and gas industry going if the Middle East and OPEC fall to foreign enemies.

Yep! These ME countries can figure out their economies on their own. With EU/Uk/China/Jap/Kor/Mex/Can/Aus trading partners are in much better shape for USA, Trump is minimizing the need for any economic activity with the ME.

We should let the First World countries on THAT side of the world police their own damn neighborhood.

I'm sick of our people dying over there and I'm tired of paying for and supporting ungrateful religious lunatics.
