news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.
« Last post by Old Rabbit on January 06, 2020, 01:07:43 pm »

It's likely Trump is doing this to distract the news away from his impeachment.
Ever since he ran for office he has done this. Each time the news centered around
something he didn't like, he would do something to change  the news. This time
his use of Iran, may have been a step too far, but only time will tell. As the GOP,
and his followers see him  almost like a sword and shield
wielding King, there to protect them.

As I figured they would, the people of Iran have made a martyr of their top
general. I am sure Trump was told this would likely happen. When Trump was
running for office he said he didn't want war, and would bring our forces home.
Yet he hires some of the worst war hawks in government for advisers. It's no
wonder we are moving toward another middle east war. This with a president
who is a neophyte, worst yet he thinks he is smart enough to know how
to run a war. Something the last 3 years have shown he doesn't know
how to do anything but cheat tax payers, by running our country as
he thinks a mob boss would.

Trump is threatening Iraq with sanctions if they get serious about wanting
our troops to leave the country. In the past Russia was an ally of Iraq. So
sanctions could send them right back to Russia for help.  That would put
Russia back in control of a large part of the middle east. Syria, Iran, and
Iraq, with influence growing in Turkey. This would put Israel at risk, and
they have nuclear weapons. Weapons  they would likely use if they were
about to be driven from their country.

Also Saudi Arabia and others around the Red sea would find themselves
at risk as well, and will likely be attacked if we use those areas to base
our troops while fighting Iran.

Yes, we have the military power to defeat Iran, but with a man like Trump
at the helm, I fear we will loose thousands of troops. The people of Iran,
unlike Iraq won't welcome our troops, and will face constant attack while
trying to occupy Iran. Also Iran fighters will attack any American anywhere
in the world they find them.

So Trump's plan to use a war to stay in office will put our national security
at high risk. Something Trump supporters may grow to hate if thousands
of our troops come home in bags. Not counting other Americans killed
 due to  Iranian terrorists.

If Trump thinks threats will work against Iran, it's a shame it's not him
who stands to loose, and not our people. Now Iran is putting their nuclear
program into high gear. So Trump will likely use this as an excuse to start
a war. A serious problem he created by pulling out of the deal Obama made
in the first place. Just because Trump hated the fact we had a black man in
the white house.

It's Jan the fifth. About 50 outside and I'm listening to someone mowing their lawn. It's January the fifth in about the middle of Missouri and someone is mowing their lawn. It's in the middle of winter and i'm listening to some crazy mowing their lawn. I guess someone got a new lawnmower for Christmas and they couldn't wait to try it out.  :D
So I take it, middle of Missouri, on Jan the 5th, no grass grows?
Maybe like here, people there just love to be obnoxious? Here people do whatever they can to make very loud noise and also create a stink.  It's as if the clean country air is so clean it hurts their lungs and they have to make outside as bad as they are on the inside.  And for entrainment people here love to listen to engines revv and guns shoot as well as ......ahhhhh, anyway...!

I'm listening to music, relaxing, and remembering better times.  Hoping for a better future this year.  Mentally preparing myself for tomorrow.  And wishing I could either fix up my current vehicle or get a second one without becoming financially tied to it in terms of payments etc.

Apparently I was wrong when I said Trump was going to the middle east.
At the time I thought it was odd our cowardly president would go anywhere
near where their might be danger. At least not by saying so first. I think
it was actually the secretary of state  that went instead. One of Trumps
lackey's.

It seems Trump hasn't come up with a honest excuse for the assassination
of Iran's top General. Except to claim he was planning attacks. Something
this really bad guy made a career out of doing. Now Trump is making
threats against Iran's cultural sites. I wonder if Trump realizes this would
be a criminal act. A war crime that could get him charged by a
international body. A judgment even the supreme court couldn't
overturn.

Trump best study international law before he walks into something
he can't back out of. Even wars have rules, and Trump best learn
them, because he could be held libel   for war crimes, and the
GOP couldn't help save him. He might escape prosecution
here, but he couldn't leave the country.

So far Trumps action hasn't received much if any support from
the international community. Now Iraq's governing body is pushing
to expel the U S military from the country. So what will Trump
say about that? Is Trump going to use military force to stay in
Iraq? Only time will tell.

Apparently the secretary of state has informed the Russian
Ambassador of of Trumps reasons for the assassination, but
not congress. This is an insult against the constitution by
Trump. To put an enemy of the country above congress
shows a total lack of respect for constitutional rule. The
secretary of state was on news shows making excuses
for Trump. Instead  he should be talking to congress.

Welcome KitKat!
I'm a GSD.  Normal markings and such.

I have a Nintendo Switch, and have Smashbrothers, but I find it actually hard to play, at least now.  I would rather play MarioKart8. 
From what I hear, Beastars is good, and I should check it out!

Glad you made it here, and hope to see you around.

President Trump claims he doesn't want a war. Then why is he trying to goad Iran
into starting a war with the U S? So far his only excuse for assassinating Iran's top
General is because he thought the General was about to kill a lot of Americans. So
far there is little evidence of any special threat other than to our embassy in Iraq
by a mob.

This General's death was well deserved, but what plan or strategy  does this
begin or continue. I think Trump used this as a distraction for the most part. Yet
I really think Trump wants a war, not started by him, but by Iran. Because he ran
for president claiming he was going to get the U S out of the middle east. So if he
started a war, it would show he lied. It's likely Trump wants this because he fears
he will loose  the election in 2020, and a war might keep him in the white house.
He accused  Obama in 2011 that he would start a war with Iran to win the 2012
election. So we know this would  be in his mind. So all our people who have
family in the  military should understand Trump will put your loved ones at
risk for his own benefit. He has added 20,000 troops to the middle east already.

Now Trump is flying to the middle east. Is he hoping there will be a threat
on his person? A threat he could use to give him an excuse to respond
with another attack.

We best hope Iran doesn't decide to really try to hurt the U S A. They have
thousands of missiles and could have a 300,000 man army attacking the oil
industry of the middle east. Shut down oil shipments through the Red sea,
an turn U S embassy's through out the middle east in to rubble. Yes we could
destroy their air defense, and Navy, but by then there wouldn't be any oil
leaving the middle east, which would put the worlds economy in chaos.

It's this threat that I really doubt Trump understands. Trump thinks everyone
in the world worries about money the way he does. So they just couldn't
destroy the income oil brings them.

In past years Trump claimed Obama couldn't make a deal with anyone. Yet
Trump has had little success with China, Iran or North Korea. He claims
his new deal with Mexico and Canada is better, but shows little change or
improvement over the one we had. So far Trump's deals consist of Bullying,
and Charms. Neither of which haven't had any success. Instead he creates
a problem, then if he fixes it, he brags about it.

Trump best hope there isn't a war, because it will wreck the world economy
and that will hurt ours as well.
