I wonder if we'll see John Bolton resign in the next few weeks.  I'm betting he wanted all out war on Iran.

Could be.  Trump obviously isn't a war monger.

Was watching Tucker on Fox for a little.  He had an independent journalist talking about how most of Wash loves war, especially the media guys.  Says it's good for their business.

Obama sure was.

Heck - he equipped ISIS at US Taxpayer expense.

Sure somebody somewhere is going to call it Trump's false flag. I don't think so. Trump himself has downplayed to an extent. Trigger happy, crazed Iranian General acting on own
so to speak. But here's my bottom line. I don't believe Trump wants to get to blows with Iran, he wants to squeeze them economically until the Iranian people overthrow Mullahs.

(/quote]

Then Trump came out against military strike for shooting down a drone that would kill
people. Brilliant. Why? A number of reasons:

* Our sanctions are sucking the lifeblood out of their economy and things are getting worse
   day by day. Folks are already very unhappy. Trump says loss of unmanned drone isn't
   worth escalating military action. Other things we can do, like further tighten sanctions.

* How do you criticize a President for choosing not to obliterate from this earth 150 Iranians
   at their posts in the radar, or whatever, centers.

* Sanctions are working, as I've mentioned. Considering inflation is already expected to hit
   40% in 2019 continued economic sanctions will only make things worse come 2020.

* Bottom line, why sacrifice American lives and treasure to attack Iran militarily when our
   current economic war can bring them to their knees.

And his decision not to bomb the hell out of Iran may persuade the EU join the sanctions.  Bombing Iran would only make our enemies hate us more and maybe even find a few more.  Notice how quiet Putiin has been over this?

Well Blue, I think Trump made exactly the right move. Winning a war against Iran can be done, but it would cost many lives, and treasure we don't have. Iran is the one suffering under the sanctions, not us, and it's getting worse for them as time passes. Question is will their strategy be to lash out militarily and hope the folks turn on Trump, or negotiate.

I bet on Trump.

Trump will only go so far.  When lives become expendable then Trump will act in kind.  It is a game of chess and in this case Trump is a master player.  I'm sure the whole world is watching, including Rocket Man.

I agree, Let them be warmed the first time then pound them into the earth the second time. The whole world witnessed him stand down. Nobody will blame him no matter how big the response after the next attack. Even the Dems can't think of a way to spin his forgiveness.
I think he should unleash a barrage that takes out their entire navy fleet.

Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran. Why was the unmanned drone in Iran's airspace? Why the surveillance? Don't provoke and then pretend innocence.

In an interview on CNN former VP Plugs Biden called AOC brilliant and bright. Wow! What was he thinking? Well I don't know what he was thinking, but it was obvious he was trying to kiss her butt. Joe, how low can you go? Apparently, pretty low. Cute and perky maybe, but to say brilliant and bright, I say "come on man" don't p** on my leg and tell me it's raining.

Sleepy Joe won't make the cut either.  I see Hickenloper or whatever his name is, is the first casualty.

There will be more, soon.  The clown show needs to get castrated and soon.  Like I said before, I don't believe whomever is chosen will stand a chance toe to toe with Trump anyway.

I think 'scorched earth' Perez wants the wackiest candidate he can get.  Perez strikes me as a pervert.  he looks demented.  When I see a picture of him the tune 'Aqualung' pops into my head immediately.
