I get your frustration, and I wouldn’t be so dismissive if it was a member of my family...."That’s what got us into this mess."
True that, just frustrating that he pleads not guilty putting all the relatives thru extra pain just so he can grandstand.
I like Ardern refusing to use his name.
"Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."And he’s pleaded not guilty to all charges. His lawyer obviously wants some notoriety.
That belongs in Trump thread. They are blaming that, and a long list of things on Iran as an excuse to go to war. I’ve seen no evidence of it being Iran, and the Taliban have claimed responsibility for some. Pompeo is dying to start a warWhen I seen this thread revived I thought it would have a post about the bombed oil tankers.

Its a good conspiracy. Some US black ops squad torpoedo a couple of ships with the same torpedoes they sell to Iran. Blame Iran, get your troops ready, win the election ... I suspect it’s well beyond the self obsessed trump brain, but there are plenty in the swamp to put it together and let him run with it.Not to mention an election is looming. Re-election prospects are generally good for wartime presidents. All part of the Trump master plan, or is that giving him too much credit?
I actually think Trump is more pacificst than his mouth suggests. McCain or Hillary and I'd say, yeah Iran better buckle up.
But yeah we never found WMDs in Iraq - I'd love to see how much repatriations would amount to...
