that would take congress.....right?
as mighty as trump is, he alone cant declare war.....



Well, now that this might deescalate, Pelosi will probably push for it.


Now that Pelosi has discovered the power of the Gavel, she will push for the House to declare war if Trump tries to negotiate a truce with Iran.

Great, the president who doesn't know what international law means will talk


So now there is an international law against the killing of terrorists?
Did your leaders in Scotland think that one up?


The guy represented his country's interests, much like the CIA spooks when they're initiating the latest coup or whatever, except he was there to meet the Iraqi PM on official business, who also may I add, backs Iran's right of retaliation.

It was a cowardly act on Trump's part, done without warning or consultation with congress or the Iraqi government, in essence the assassination was a terrorist act, hell it was probably done on a whim because he had too much tipple over xmas or something, the guy is an idiot, c'mon

Any predictions on what will be said?


What ever he says.

His haters will call it something that it totally wasn't.

He'll probably say Iran and terrorist.

Maybe both together.

It's actually fact:



The Iraqi foreign ministry has summoned US ambassador Matthew Tueller to condemn recent American strikes in the capital Baghdad that resulted in the assassination of Iran’s top military commander, Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and the second-in-command of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.




The ministry further stated that the act was also “a flagrant breach of all international laws and norms that regulate relations between countries and prohibit the use of their lands to carry out attacks on neighboring countries.”




In all, 10 people -- five Iraqis and five Iranians -- were assassinated in the US strike on their motorcade just outside Baghdad airport in early hours of Friday shortly after Gen. Soleimani’s flight had arrived from Syria, leading to speculation that the Israeli intelligence apparatus might have played a role.

I'm guessing there will be a rebuttal after the president speaks by some leftist.

That should be popcorn worthy.

Oh that goes without saying, even if it is a known carcinogen......

He will talk something about military strength and he will make some meaningless accusations against everyone who is not of his opinion and he will certainly mention the democrats and that he is the best president of all times.

I know you may think it's cool to just think a source is bunk, maybe because your friends do, but the truth is in what people say and not the source, I can get other sources if you wan't to get burned more


This is called a direct quote:

TV is on and tuned to cable news... it'll be off before any sort of Dem rebuttal. I don't have the stomach to watch high paid adults talk stupid.
