Trump Iran Drumbeat - ‘Cocked & Loaded’



https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-authorized-strikes-on-iran-but-called-it-off-abruptly-when-planes-were-already-preparing-to-hit-nyt

Bets on how long it's going to be before a military action on Iran??? According to Pompeo last weekend, Congress will not need to be involved.

Explaining his decision Friday morning, Trump wrote: “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone.”

He added: “I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world. Sanctions are biting & more added last night. Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the USA, and not against the WORLD!”

Multiple senior administration officials cited by the Times said military and diplomatic officials were waiting for a strike Thursday evening when the operation was suddenly called off. Planes were reportedly already in the air and ships had gotten into position when the call came down that the operation was not going ahead.

I think someone actually got though to that unrepentant serial adulterer that absolutely no one in the international circles would support a US strike. Give that unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump credit for listening.

For now.

After the speech yesterday morning, I hadn't heard the news til late evening, but I was shocked that planes had launched in the first place. He kept saying yesterday morning they "just" made a mistake after initially making is sound like how dare they, they made a big mistake. We all know he's wishy washy anyway. I'm not comfortable with these tactics but it's better than actually going to war.

Russia did warn US to not provoke Iran, so there is that. Wonder if Putin made a call?

Ok he's saying the amount of deaths weren't warranted for an unmanned drone. Wouldn't that have been one of the top 3 questions you'd ask before sending the strike?

yeah he doesn't know much about guns (like most people here)... he was saying he wants to ban "silencers" which proves he has no clue.

What is so hard to understand that 'silencer' is a different word for the same thing?


A silencer, suppressor, sound suppressor, or sound moderator is a muzzle device that reduces the sound intensity and muzzle flash.


But no, don't expect the draft dodging SOB to know much about war, he and Nugent make a good tag team, one shits their pants the other cums in his.

John Bolton: Iran should not 'mistake US prudence and discretion for weakness'

Jerusalem (CNN) United States national security adviser John Bolton warned Sunday that Iran should not "mistake US prudence and discretion for weakness," days after President Donald Trump called off a retaliatory military strike against Iran after the downing of an American drone.

Bolton also warned of the possibility of a strike against Iran in the future during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.



Pompeo in Saudi Arabia, Iran threatens more US drone attacks

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks Monday with the Saudi king and crown prince after days of mounting tensions following the downing of a U.S drone last week and after President Donald Trump pulled back from the brink of retaliatory military strikes on Iran.


Bolton, the Saudis and Pompeo are going to talk Agent Orange into attacking Iran. They have wanted this for decades now. Bolton is probably creaming his pants, and the Saudis are using us for their military, as usual. They're no dummies - anybody remember 9/11?
