I had to tell my son tonight, reassure my son that if things got too far, I would be going back in before he ever would.

He's been on his own account, watching this unfold with his friends.

They're afraid because the MSM is stoking fear, the internet is stoking fear.

People become much more manageable when they are afraid.

So I would anticipate more fear-mongering, more hyperbole, just to frighten people.

You're right, this is absolutely trumps fault. Just think, if he would have just kept to Obamas game plan and kept flying in pallets of cash and weapons
a reply to: Oppositeoftruth

Can you point out the test in the agreement, or anywhere actually, that states that this was Obama's plan?

Or are these just your delusional rantings?

So, is Irans strategy to just threaten everyone around them in the ME? The US, UAE, Israel, etc...who's next?


Not sure why they are threatening Israel other than pure hatred for the country, but the UAE is being threatened because of the US airbases there. They claim if sorties originate from those countries they will be attacked. I guess that's what their strategy is

Instead, drone the leaders. Our intelligence Community knows where they are 24 hours a day.


So why did't they just 'drone' Saddam Hussein?
Osama bin Laden?

You mean that was all we had to do instead of send in 100's of thousands of troops and trillions of dollars in Iraq in Afghanistan?

Your bloody brilliant! You should be a General of the Army!

Iran's military says it has killed 30 US soldiers in Iraq tonight. US officials have only reported Iraqi casualties so far. Important to watch how this develops.

If its true that Iranian fighter jets are in Iraqi airspace,expect them to be targeted by the US-leading to more escalation.

I wish this wasn't going to spiral into full war,but there are no cool heads in this situation.
This is very bad.
Many will die,on both sides and maybe further afield.

Nightmare start to the new decade.

According to Maggie Haberman, Trump will not be giving an address tonight, per WH sources.

I'm gonna finish watching The Craft anyway.

I am sure this has already been said but lets face it, Trump has to respond, if nothing else after his tough talk over the last week kind of means he has to other else he looks weak, looks like he can't follow through, is all talk (however you want to put it).

The question then is how does America respond, personally I hope and I don't expect that its going to be a quick response. Seems like neither side wants war but at the same time doesn't want to be seen to back down. So what does he do, could just be a massive ICBM strike against military targets in Iran. The problem though as I see it with a attack like that is that it doesn't remove what I see as the real threat Iran poses; its control of militia groups. To be really effective you would have to be able to dismantle their unconventional warfare capabilities.

Time will tell, I would hope that this would be the kind of event that would bring both sides to the diplomatic table but I know and understand that America has to respond.

If 30 US soldiers died, plus however many Iraqi soldiers (aren't they allies?), I feel the US's response won't be limited. If I had to speculate, I'm thinking that they will go after the ballistic launchers in Iran (they know where they are) and who knows what else.

Obama, Clinton never organized an army of hundreds of thousands to invade another country.

LBJ was a conservative.

If using drones to take out the leadership is such a fantastic idea, what happened with Saddam? bin Laden? Kim?

The world is not a video game, this is not Call of Duty Modern Warfare. You don't call in a drone and take out a countries leadership.

Did not any conservative learn ANYTHING from Iraq? Not one little drop?

You get that from Agenda-Free?

He just reported British Airways BAw134 turned around at Kuwait to head in the opposite direction. What? To head home? just turned around and headed somewhere other than their destination.

I'm glad their getting out of the way - along with Singapore Airlines.
