    Such insanity. Will Trump cultists ever become patriots and stop supporting the madman-in-chief?

    Doubtful, I know.

    Former Republican congressman states it well.

    There's absolutely nothing about this aborted Iran strike that looks good on the world stage tonight. Nothing. Nothing strategic. Nothing geopolitically advantageous. Nothing reflecting well on US political leaders. Nothing reassuring to allies. Only a projection of incompetence.

    Maybe he will draw a line in the sand, like our last president. That worked perfectly !:eek::eek:

    Or maybe he will call them the JV team.

    Not evil, just wildly incompetent. He is on the verge of a completely avoidable war with Iran because he didn't like Obama's brand. Which is the dumbest reason for a war, EVER. Way to go Republicans!

    The best case is that Trump just makes such monumentally important decisions on a whim. The worst case is that he shifted course on Putin’s orders.

    Either way, the one thing clear is that Trump committed a massive blunder when he tore up the Iran deal. He said he would replace it with something better. Chaos and turning the US into an international pariah is not better.

    "Reportedly" = completely made up from non-existent anonymous sources (wink wink).

    Only the absolute DUMBEST of the dumb still fall for this.

    Trump is going to be pummeled with criticism for this. My worry is that he'll get it in his head that war would help him get reelected.

    In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran.

    Much of his rabble love the idea of a war with Iran. But I think he knows that there is a sector of his rabble that would resent it if he violated his “pledge” not to start stupid wars. Maybe I give them too much credit though.

    Trump provides a case study in projection. Every day.

    I thought they were all saying he's an out-of-control lunatic incapable of controlling himself. Here he controls himself, and he's in the wrong. I wonder who the lunatics are?

    Ah, but what will today bring? Or tomorrow?

    The out-of-control lunacy is making such decisions on a whim.

    I'm glad that you asked me. I can foretell that there will be much more posting today. I hope this helps

    Meanwhile, could you elaborate on what lunacy there is in not bombing Iran at this time?
