Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

United Nations officials are "assessing the United States' plans to carry out a tactical assault on Iran," the Jerusalem Post reported Monday, citing anonymous diplomatic sources at the U.N. headquarters in New York. "According to the officials, since Friday, the White House has been holding incessant discussions involving senior military commanders, Pentagon representatives, and advisers to President Donald Trump," the Post reported. "The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program."

Yeah, it'll be highly targeted the first day or two.

Then Iran will actually blow up a boat/tanker/something in retaliation (and rightfully so) and then it'll be game on for Iran at large.

I'm curious how many energy/oil shares Trump or his disgusting children have bought the past six months.

Russia isn't China and Iran isn't North Korea.

Should we bomb Iran. Russia won't do anything. Much like Syria.

Anyone here who believes that Congress will intervene, and use their constitutional powers to stop a war and to put Cadet Bone Spurs back into his bedroom -

Please raise your mouse.

in 2016 - the reasons to vote for trump were:

He was going to drain the swamp
He was going to stop industries from leaving the country
He was going to fight for the little guy against the bankers
He had a super secret plan for better cheaper healthcare
He was going to hire all the best people
He wasn't going to plan any golf
and
NO MORE FOREIGN WARS

What's left in 2020?

I still hate mexicans?
That will probably be enough for his flock of morons.

From the Jerusalem Post? That's a new one.

I can believe they are discussing it. I am not ready to believe they are going through with it.

Well, the 4th of July is coming up. Why not give the people what they want? A million per missile and they're going to kill some brown babies.

Let's celebrate! And don't forget to donate to the DJT reelection fund!

Putin is probably making a killing off of SA-21 sales to Iran.

"Reportedly?" "Anonymous diplomatic sources?" "Unclear how credible this report is?" Guess Trump "May or May Not" Attack Iran, based on some one's Uncle Shecky's overhearing two guys in suits, who looked important, talking about crap that they "reportedly" know nothing about. Maybe.

Russia will applaud an attack on Iran or any other oil producing nation. It will make their oil more valuable. Do you honestly think Putin gives a crap about Iran? These people are virtually stateless profiteers. Wars are profit centers. They justify it by thinking that the people they kill weren't really enjoying their lives anyway. They do, more and more, view themselves as royalty. That is why Trump had to have his kids at the state dinner with the Queen, they are actually, in his mind, the Royal Family of America.

I wasn't referring to the JP, but the DRtard frenzy upthread from #8.

That being said, who would most want the US to deal with their Iran problem? I will give you two guesses...

Yeah its not like leaks out of the white house have a proven track record of being far more accurate than the president's mouth or anything...

Makes American oil more valuable too.
Like I said yesterday, who among Trump/Putin/Iran doesn't want their oil to be more valuable?

There isn't much to talk about if you think Russia didn't "do anything" in Syria.

Our country is run by lying, power hungry, money grubbing, scum bags. The beacon has been snuffed.

Since when is it OK to tell your enemies your battle plans? I guess if you're only orange, not black, you can get away with it.

Rubes.

You complained when it happened before, but now you defend it. Thanks for making my point for me.

It's easy to see that "anonymous" sources has done more damage to this country than any political figure we've ever had in office.
