    You are most likely correct but rumpy has no clue about military intelligence. Let alone intelligence period. Look at China and tariffs.

    If Trump sends our troops to die, he should send his own sons first. He claims they are the two best shots ever. Let them put their skills to good use. UNLESS they have bone spurs and don't pass the physical. If they checked their mentality, I suppose that'd make them exempt as well.

    Last time Republicans lied us into war, they had to lower the bar and accept low IQ and low mental health functioning troops like gang bangers to make do. So there's a place for Uday and Qusay.

    And Pompeo, too.

    Reported by Bloomberg News:

    "U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo made scant progress persuading European Union counterparts to take a harder line toward Iran during a quick visit to Brussels, with the EU standing behind the nuclear accord abandoned by Washington -- and warning of a potential military conflict.

    Pompeo presented what the U.S. says is fresh intelligence on the threat posed by Iran in meetings with counterparts from the three EU nations that joined the landmark 2015 accord that President Donald Trump abandoned a year ago. The top U.S. diplomat received a cool initial response to the surprise visit as foreign ministers from the 28-member bloc convened in the Belgian capital.

    Yep, and John Bolton was complicit in invading Iraq, and now he wants war with Iran.
    Bolton needs to de-louse that bush over his lip and stay out of politics. I remember when he was one of Bush's thugs who stopped the re=count in FL in 2000. And he emerges again as one of Trump's stooges.

    Bolton didn't like the war he weaseled out of fighting in. Those who talk loudest run away the quickest.

    Every Bodybag Is Stamped "Made in Geneva"

    Quagmires are caused by unrealistic and suicidal Rules of Engagement. Drafting the brats of the rich at age 18 for two years active duty is the only way to get the rulers to scrap those air-conditioned ethics. They are designed solely to kill off or take the fight out of the bravest of those who weren't born rich.

    America was vilified the last time.....when GWBush lied us into invading Iraq.

    I guess Trump supporters don't mind that their mentally unbalanced, reckless, incompetent and corrupt president is marching us to war. Republicans will be too worried about being primaried and losing their seats.....to stand up against this fool Trump. It's party over country for the no morals, no values Republicans.

    Trump supporters will go along with whatever their mentally unstable president does. Shooting someone on 5th Avenue or starting a war with Iran. They don't care.

    Yeah, but it’s not like they let us vote. @Sickofleft made a pretty good case that the U.S. doesn’t want a war. Obviously Iran doesn’t. Russia might, as might the extreme Russia hawks in both parties in Washington.

    Donald Jr., 41, is too old to enlist under current rules. Barron, 13, is too young.

    His other three kids, Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany, are all fighting age.

    A new administration, much less a new staff, won’t fundamentally change the social crisis compelling the U.S. toward imperialist war. From Clinton, to Bush, to Obama, to Trump, is has been the same story.
