Am I the only one who sees a connection between the Iraq war because they "had" wmd's

and now being led to believe that N.Korea has the ability to hit us with a nuclear bomb. The threat of a nuclear war would certainly take the focus off Trumps troubles with Russia et al.
Watching the news tonight there is a "panic" theme because nuclear war is at hand, so we are told.
We are now being led down the same path -- war will surely bring the country together behind the mad man we call our president.
It is his last hope to become a "hero".
I am sick tonight. FUck TRUMP and all his minions.

2. Wow you are jaded

 

It is almost like a few weeks ago they told us they might be able to hit Alaska, then a week later Seattle, then a week later Denver. By the end of this week they will have the entire Western and MidWest being in imminent danger from NK.

IT IS FUCKING DISGUSTING.

6. Yes and No

The Iraq war was on the heels on 911. Also congress voted on the Iraq war.

I don't know if congress would vote to go to war with NK. I just don't see this catching traction.

I suppose Trump could bomb them without congressional approval, but he would have to get congressional approval for a sustained effort. Even if he does bomb them without congressional approval, there may be an awful backlash. If he creates WWIII, I don't know if congress will forgive him.

9. Hard to believe it's been this long. Read this and weep:

 

Lie by Lie: A Timeline of How We Got Into Iraq

Mushroom clouds, duct tape, Judy Miller, Curveball. Recalling how Americans were sold a bogus case for invasion.
