Here Goat. Just for you.

1) There were revolutions in Iran demanding regime change prior to Soleimani's death.

Of course there were Soleimani slaughtered 1500 just recently.

1500 protesters were slaughter in Iran.

Soleimani didn't have anything to do with it.

2) Rumors are Soleimani may have been trying to out the Islamic Regime and working to make Iran more secular.

Perhaps ... but wasn't getting anywhere.

This isn't a fact, new information, or an real attempt at a response.

3) America not only was working with Soleimani to combat ISIS, they were pretty much always aware of where he was.

So?

So. Why kill him now?

4) Solimani was killed in Iraq in a convoy. It was a safe, secure location to kill him without too many casualties.

It was in Bagdhad, the place he attacked .. what a perfect opportunity, he thought he was invincible.

News flash. Baghdad is in Iraq. He was in a convoy on the way to the airport. They killed him in an isolated location to minimize casualties.

Mattress literally doesn't provide anything. It's just responding.

5) Rumors are, Khamenei requested the strike.

LOL

I'm communicating a rumor I've heard.

It's information. You can choose to dismiss it.

6) Rumors are, the Ukrainian Airliner was shot down on purpose to eliminate a specific passenger.

This was started by me.

Again. I'm telling you I've heard different people tell me this rumor.

Take it as you want.

Mattress claims to have started it.

Maybe you found that comment newsworthy.

7) Rumor is the "retaliation" by Iran was staged and America was alerted to it.

They were alerted by our technological advantage.

Cool beans. Thanks god for our technological advances.

There zero possibility there's anything more.

Again. It's information. You can choose to dismiss it. You're an adult, right?

8) When was the last time Americans, American soil, or an American base was attacked without retaliation?

Who says we aren't retaliating?

Are we?

9) Iran's "retaliation" was absolutely a show of force without any intended casualties.

Disagree, it hit its intended target, verified by photos,

I neve said it didn't hit its intended target. I'm saying it was a show of force.

our great military was aware and took proper precautions.

Is this a prepared statement?

Considering all it's options to retaliate against America for killing their great general. It seems one missile strike, where they end up killing 187 people on a passenger plane. Is an odd choice for Iran.

But hey. You're all too busy trolling as hard as you can to actually think.

More like self-made billionaire, media magnate and former mayor of America's largest city collides with fantasy billionaire bankruptcy case who inherited his money from his Klansman daddy, stiffed the government out of millions in tax dollars and is only still a thing thanks to shady loans from Hitler's favorite bank most likely backed by Russian oligarchs.

Exact description and bears repeating.

Of course, Dems don't care about record of actual accomplisments, especially in private sector, unless it has to do with being high on the ladder of government.

BTW, Bloomberg is the only one who holds Dotard to 42% in latest national and battleground states, including Mischigan, and has or ties for the highest spread between DemX vs Trump.

He also doesn't scare people with promises to give away too much "free stuff" (like e.g., "forgive all student debt, without Congress" or "declare global warming state of emergency on day 1") or kill the economy by overtaxing everyone to oblivion (OK, only "the rich" who will find the ways to avoid or pass the taxes, like downstream to consumers and the middle class.)

Maybe he is not popular with some typically Dem groups like AAs, but that's what VPs are for - Kamala Harris or someone else could fill in the blanks.

Or Dems can go with Socialist Senators, Semi-Socialist former VP past his prime living out "Obama legacy" (Obama was stuck in low 40's approval for most of his terms, too) and Mayor Babyface qho will be digitally eaten alive and if "the best ever economy" faux meme holds on till November, will make them easier to beat than Hillary in EC.

Because elections are always relative to the "other guy" - lately it's usually a choice of who is "worse" to vote against.

Trump is now saying that it's the Democrats who are trying to destroy Social Security and Medicare, and that he's the only one who can save those programs:

Donald Trump Vows To Save Social Security " From Himself

A day after he said he's considering cutting Social Security benefits, Trump now insists it's the Democrats who want to "destroy" the program.

www.huffpost.com

And in this same article, Mulvany stated that after Trump wins reelection in November, there will be another round of tax cuts, which begs the question, how will that help save Social Security and Medicare? But then Trump has recently suggested that by then, the economy will be doing so well, people won't really need any of those so-called 'safety-net' programs anymore.
