I have a very close friend and contact who is Iranian and is well connected with the resistance movement in that nation.

My contact has said that nothing is as it appears to be at least from the perspective of what we're being told and shown.

For the record, my contact lived in Iran for over 40 years and worked as a journalist in that country as well as having served as an editor for several of their internal news organizations. He left Iran almost 4 years ago and now resides in Canada. He has kept in close contact with his ties in Iran since leaving and has his hand on the pulse of the people in that nation.

Here's the highlights from the conversation/interview with my contact:

Apparently, the demonstrations we're being shown on television is a farce; he said the Iranian government typically pays or otherwise compels those we see demonstrating to be out en masse protesting. In reality, by and large, the Iranian people hated Soleimani and celebrated his death

As much as people are attacking Trump for this move, the Iranian people are thankful for what Trump "had the guts to do" in face of the expected opposition and backlash

Everything we're being told about Soleimani is apparently true and just the tip of the iceberg. He was apparently worse than what Western media has indicated in many respects

From the perspective of my contact, Soleimani "deserved" to die and "should of suffered more".

It's easy for the Iranian government to assemble even as many as a million people in the streets but that most of Iran's population of 81 million not only hated Soleimani but hate the Iranian regime altogether.

For these protests, from a logistical standpoint, they do it by recruiting 100,000 people from ten cities and then assemble all of them in the capitol. These protesters are paid and during the demonstrations they receive everything from meals to clothing; they are apparently well taken of and serve to show whatever the Iranian government wants to depict.

For reference, these demonstrations aren't nearly as big or widespread as others have been, for example, when the people of Iran are behind them instead of the government; last time this happened was ten years ago when Ahmadinejad was elected through, what many Iranian people viewed as, cheating. It was a silent protest, albeit, but there were three million in the streets for it.

The Iranian people want war not because they have a problem with the U.S., but rather because they want regime-change and hate their government.

The internal Iranian resistance movement is large and involves "millions and millions" of the nation's population.

The push back from Iraq is also not representative of the reality on the ground. It's true that the current ruling coalition in that country supports the Iranian regime, but that coalition only represents a third of the country's population. By and large, the Iraqi people support what the U.S. did and are in lock step with the majority of Iranians.

I have more the interview to publish too and will be doing that ahead.

You call opinions "siphoning valor"? That is quite intolerant.

lets flip it around: all the keyboard warriors who think we should continue to pacify people who attack us should be deported to those countries that they seem to feel so strongly about.

Its just as stupid to say that, now isn't it?

The thing is, you didn't present an argument to support a position.


I put it politely, and more politely than deserved. I'll be less polite with the reiteration.

When a pro-war keyboard warrior sports wood over war & carnage, but refuses to join up/rejoin -- those who cannot due to age or medical restrictions are obviously exempt here, but still running at the mouth -- are simply dogs of the lowest order too chickens# to back up their crap with their own lives, so in their limp fervor, they siphon off a little of the valor real soldiers earned the right to in their fights. It makes them feel like big boys.

It's that damn simple, and needs no argument to support it. Nobody needs deported or some such, but if you're going to talk big war talk, go to war and put up. Otherwise, stuff it -- we see the spine is wet noodle limp already.

DAMN! I Love This president's way of thinking, and how he openly and candidly communicates with all the people of America and the world!



Yeah, it's nice when he have a president with some balls instead of one who pays Iran $1.8 billion to give us back the hostages they took.


Or one who pays Iran $5 million to keep the hostages in Iran until after the election (and Reagan's inauguration).

The news media keeps saying the "crisis" between the US and Iran is escalating.

1.) What crisis?

2.) What escalation?

We killed an Iranian terrorist last week. Hardly a crisis.

God,did you really have to.post that pic of taxinda adhern.....she make alot.of us nz'ers vomit.



Wow, Simon Bridges that isnt you is it?..

To think I share the same landmass as you and your 'alot'... thankfully your 'alot' is pretty god damn small. Your tone reminds me of an ultra religous friend of my mother who calls the PM a 'whore' and doesnt vote labor because of it since her and her husband arent married but still had a kid... even though said friend leans well left politically.

And for the record ive not be much of a Labor voter for a while given they are more center left than left these days, and personally im a Green voter... but Labor and the PM have done more in the last few years than the 'fiscal' minded National party did in its entire 2 recent terms... unless you count National selling off large portions of the countries resources and infrastructure to China for cash in the back pocket... now THAT makes or should make any NZer vomit.

Off topic there sorry... just saw that post and saw red.

On topic, i dont see Trump doing anything actually... the guy is all piss and wind and his supporters drink it up like its fine wine. Hopefully the people with the actual power dont act on it, although the people in power as of late appear to be just as nutty as Trump is, but at least Trumps got an excuse for his stupid... and should it actually devolve into real conflict, it's gonna be one hell of a foot note of 'stupid' in the annuals of history. Im just glad it'll have the name 'Trump' stamped all over it, the guy wants to be famous, important, the bestest eva! then he better own it the orange mong, when it inevitably goes tits up... and believe me it will go tits up.

It is a scandal in contemporary international law, don’t forget, that while “wanton destruction of towns, cities and villages” is a war crime of long standing, the bombing of cities from airplanes goes not only unpunished but virtually unaccused. Air bombardment is state terrorism, the terrorism of the rich.

It has burned up and blasted apart more innocents in the past six decades than have all the antistate terrorists who ever lived. Something has benumbed our consciousness against this reality.

In the United States we would not consider for the presidency a man who had once thrown a bomb into a crowded restaurant, but we are happy to elect a man who once dropped bombs from airplanes that destroyed not only restaurants but the buildings that contained them and the neighborhoods that surrounded them. I went to Iraq after the Gulf war and saw for myself what the bombs did; “wanton destruction” is just the term for it. – C. Douglas Lummis, political scientist

Americans killed an Iranian general who was in Iraq fighting ISIS.

The guy is a hero in Iran/Iraq/Syria because he was mainly responsible for beating their ass.

Now he's a terrorist?

Why is that? Because he killed an American?

Where is the proof?

Need to see Boris about that first i imagine, but here is hoping.


As to the highlands, if we were to dump Trump there and leave him to his own devices, he would be dead in a matter of hours, especially at this time of year, and there's not even that many stairs.

Kind of strange and rather perverted that Qasem Soleimani may achieve in death what he could only have hoped for in life.

That being the better part of the American military removed from one of the most contested zones in the Middle East and the hearts and minds of the people lost for the significant portion of the coming century.

Oops, Trump strikes again, what a bawbag???!!!
