Here we go again...

https://www.salon.com/2019/05/15/trump-and-bolton-two-fat-heads-with-itchy-trigger-fingers-and-120000-troops/

....

Does any of this sound familiar? A body of water called a “gulf” where a ship was “damaged” in an “attack,” and nobody can verify either the attack or the damage. A lying idiot in the White House itching to launch an attack on a regime he hates. A lying national security adviser whispering in the ear of the lying idiot that if we don’t “do something,” our “resolve” will be questioned and we will look “weak.”

Here we fucking go again. Gulf of Tonkin? Persian Gulf? The North Vietnamese? The Iranians? What is this, 1964?

All we need is a bunch of sold-out politicians in Washington D.C. willing to believe black is white, night is day, and up is down . . . ooops! Who’s that I see over there still talking about Hillary’s emails and Benghazi? Why, it’s any kowtowing Republican walking down one of those corridors in the basement of the Capitol where all the TV reporters shove microphones in their faces so they can blather unhinged nonsense supporting the lies of the man in the White House so he won’t Tweet at them tomorrow morning at 6 a.m., that’s who it is!

What’s that you say? The Iranians are attacking oil tankers in the Persian Gulf and re-starting their nuclear program? John Kerry should be arrested and prosecuted because he talked on the phone to somebody in Iran yesterday? The FBI is a radical leftist cult intent on launching a coup against the president of the United States? Overthrowing Saddam was a really, really good idea, and anybody who doesn’t believe it is a lily-livered peacenik?

.......


These mother fu*kers are desperate to distract us from the shit raining down around us.

1. That's the first thing I thought of.

Déjà-vu all over again.

2. 1898. Remember the Maine.

I think that was the first time, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

3. Putin could help fake an attack from Iran

so his puppet president could get another four years

US then spends another trillion going after Iran while Russia and China laugh their asses off.

Dangerous times. I don't trust anyone in the GOP.

6. I believe Putin is backing Iran.

Let's see which way the wind is blowing when PompousAhole gets back from his command performance before Putin.

7. If he gets them into a war, Russia oil sells for more

and the war doesn't cost him a dime.

He'll be there to pick up the pieces when the war is over.

After the Shah, the Iranians will never accept the US. This war won't solve that.

4. They have been beating the Iran war drums since Bush's first term.

The scary thing is that these motherfuckers might succeed this time.

5. They just might, but if we failed spectacularly in Iraq, what makes anyone think Iran will be

easier? Or is that just a stupid question?

8. Some people did "great" in Iraq.

Halliburton's profits soared.

Private mercenary forces like Blackwater (aka Xe, and whatever current name Erik Prince gives to his criminal enterprise) profited mightily.

Arms suppliers sold plenty.

We the People of the USA suffered, especially our veterans, but all of us as well through the loss of liberties and the ever metastasizing national security state. And of course the Iraqi people suffered much more. But the Iraq War was not on behalf of We the People of the USA, nor would any Iran War be.

We have to stop this. Congress must start impeachment for the very real crimes of foreign allegiances, obstruction of justice, and corruption and emoluments within the Executive Branch. Trump will try to start a war anyway, but he will have even less legitimacy once formally being investigated toward impeachment.

10. They don't want it to be easier. They don't care about dead bodies (US or foreign).

Bechtel, Carlyle Group, Mantech, CACI, Blackwater/whatever, Lockheed/Martin. Any corporation with a large office building around the DC beltway.

Their all looking for some more war profits.

I'm sorta interested in how this plays out in Riyadh with Kushner's boyfriend mrBS.

15. Trump is trying to force Iran into a war.

 

He violated the peace plan by pulling out. He then put sanctions on Iran that are seriously hurting them economically. Iran has responded that it will be forced to take actions.

The drawback for Trump going to war with Iran, it could devastate the world economy, gasoline and natural gas prices will soar. Trump will do what he thinks will help to reelect him.
