    Hey the glory of Bolton is in the works here

    After all Iraq worked so well--might as well fight currently on 2 fronts

    Tell one of your kids to enlist---after all you hold this as the greatest of importance
    Or your just satisfied deeming one of your neighbors sons or daughters as expendable

    I don't know Bushie... You seem to have me confused with somebody who wants to go full on war with Iran. No interest.

    But that doesn't mean the Obama deal was a good one. While it may have slowed down Iran's entry into the nuke club, Trump understood that the honey we were giving them was just being put to use to support terrorists and other Iranian puppet throughout the Middle East.

    Strangle them economically until the Mullahs are coughing up blood.

    Yeah....Iraq is half the size of Iran---how many American sons were lost F'n them up badly?

    What’s your argument?? I don't see anybody here arguing for a war with Iran. The left narrative of the day is that the president is weak for not striking. Now, if he strikes,, then you and the left can start the war monger narrative. Jeez.

    If our primary goal is to prevent the Iranians from building a nuke and missile to carry it, then the ONLY way to insure that is an Iraqi-style invasion. It can all be built underground or in remote sites. There is no support for that outside the Bolton-Pompeo axis, so you have to negotiate. If our secondary goal is to quiet the Gulf region, and secure ISR, we have to silence the Shia/Sunni rivalary. Probably not possible.
    Into this crazy situation rides a simple-minded idiot with a hero-complex. What could go wrong?

    Pet peeve: it is “3 different sites” not “3 different sights” Mr. President.

    You expect proof reading from a man that can't speak in complete sentences?

    I wonder if he asked about casualties, or somebody (the general) warned him of the casualties and consequences and trump is taking credit for listening to a cooler head.

    I think we back off and let the international community deal with them. They are clearly baiting the US. I don't know why, but they are.

    They're baiting us? You have got to be kidding.

    That is a lie. Nobody other than Bolton and the other ex-PNAC dotards think he is weak for not striking.

    Like Father, Like Daughter.

    Liz Cheney said Trump's decision was as bad as Obama's unenforced "red line" in Syria. She was soundly defeated when she ran a primary challenge against Senator Enzi last time around, but he is retiring. She may try for his seat in 2020.

    Economic strangulation is really our only hope. Ef up the Iranian economy so much that they simply can't afford to proceed without causing riots and, hopefully, internal regime change.

    Check....Bolton is in Israel and Pompeo is in Saudi Arabia

    Yep that should just about close the loop

    How is that working in Cuba and North Korea?

    Again nobody has investigated collusion. The Mueller report does not exonerate. I don't care what the Cheeto Messiah has told you. It is clear from the report that Russia made many attempts to influence the election and the Trump campaign was willing to accept the help.

    Cuba’s not an example, I don’t think. We’ve never really gone after countries and companies that do business there. Do business with Iran, Trump will f-ck you up.

    The Green protests are indicative that the Iranian populace isn't as docile as the North Koreans.

    Yeah let's make war with the whole rest of the world. Is that your plan?

    You mean the protests that effected as much change as Tianemen Square?

    Who was the POTUS while these election tampering attempts were going again??? Even CNN says Obama knew about it and didn't act. My bad, he told them to "cut it out".

    Semantics.

    Nobody investigated collusion because there's no such thing as illegal collusion. However, at 3:41, Mueller says clearly that there was "insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy."
