He just likes war in general. It's not Iran specifically. He'd support war on Monaco or Gondor or really anywhere if you asked him.

He doesn't want to go to war. He wants to send other people to war.

Al Qaeda in Iran?

Judging by past history, next on the agenda is staging a show and tell at the UN showing all the chemical warfare sites and screaming about yellow cake.
 
2019-04-14 09:03:22 AM  
How about we just let him run wild with every battle simulator we have?
Throw in a VR headset, surround sound then, after, put him in a helicopter gun ship and fly him to every VA hospital on a secret-mission tour for first-hand war tales?

Surely that will keep him occupied for a while.

But Iran...

...Iran so far away!

And our only genuine hope that it won't happen is that Piggy will decide that Walrus will get all the attention, and Piggy won't like that.

I prefer this quote: 'War is the most expensive and least effective way to solve a problem.'

Well him and his family can be the first ones in, followed by his bosses.

Walruses (Walri?) are assholes.

Well the upside is now I can join the military as an officer without having to worry about getting any waivers for those MIPs I got in college. The downside is people are going to die

LOL @ Gondor.

Someone with PS should put Boltons face on here with the caption "Here we see Bolton receiving a missive from his hidden dark master of what the next step in the plan will be for him"

Ain't that some shiat.

Our nation's biggest export: War.

Our nation's biggest domestic industry: Incarceration.

There's little wonder why Trump is President.
 
2019-04-14 09:45:53 AM  
He still thinks its 1979, doesn't he.

There are at least three other countries we should go to war with first before Iran, even if it's only for oil.
 
2019-04-14 09:47:34 AM  
This is going to sound oddball, but Trump's administration is probably the only R administration that would not actively engage in going to war.

Trump secretly admires the dictators that he claims to keep America safe from - if only to get notes as to how to operate things here. For all his bluster, he knows that there are despots who aren't the least intimidated by his threats because they know he can't back them up. Moreover, this isn't the W era from 16 years ago from a nation still living fresh off a 9/11 mindset - we don't have that mentality anymore.

There would be no winners in a war with Iran.

Fortunately for us, Trump supporters hate going to war.  Trump couldn't even stage a fake airstrike in Syria without them going nuts.
 
2019-04-14 09:54:22 AM  
I could have sworn I heard somewhere that ISIS had been completely defeated. And now I find out that they're in cahoots with the Iranians?

It's almost as though facts pop in and out of the air on their own whims.

I was going to say, I'm pretty sure he can arrange for himself to be placed next to the Iranian border with quite an arsenal, and is free to start walking.
 
2019-04-14 10:01:37 AM  
I predict that my puppy dog will rip up the next rag he sees.

I predict that Donald Trump will start a war before his term is up.

Exactly the same logic in both cases.

If he wants to go to war with Iran, fine.  Let him do it.... ALL BY HIMSELF.

The Trump Administration doesn't have the political clout to go to war.  If 9-11 were to happen today, Teen Vogue would be able to trace it back to someone with a Mar-A-Lago membership over the course of a weekend.  Even Bobby Mueller, William Barr, and Rod Rosenstein wouldn't be able to cover it up.

Same ol' bunch of neocons who are really bad at foreign policy, yet we keep going back to them for more of it.

We have the mentality now of "Anything so long as it's STIGGINIT to them Mexicans." And one of the messages that made them cheer was that ISIS was sneaking across the border. The cult will believe anything,there is no limit whatsoever. You can tell them that Iran is putting gay powder in their Frosted Flakes and shipping them in from Mexico and they'll be utterly convinced it's true.

They've kept that wound as fresh and raw as they could for as long as they could, so there are plenty with that mentality.

I think this administration is putting us on a course towards a new war.  The only questions are when and where.
 
2019-04-14 10:29:44 AM  
Of course. No one hates war more than the people who fought on the battlefields, and no one loves war more than the chickenhawks too afraid to sign up.

Perhaps the Iranians can shoot him as he comes down with one of the Hawk surface to air missiles that Reagan gave them, for great karma..

That's actually a pretty good suggestion.  Better yet, let's send him to a 45 day gunnery rotation.  He can decide if sucking sh*t for 1.5 months is worth getting 20 minutes of live-fire.

More than that: He wants the United States to behave more like the empires of old. You know, invade neighbors, take their stuff, enslave their peoples, that kind of classic hegemony.

He's one of those "why should we follow the rules when there's no one to stop us?" types. We have the biggest military, why aren't we using it to establish the mighty American empire?
 
2019-04-14 10:37:23 AM  
But it'll be the poors and your kids who'll be used for cannon-fodder.
 
2019-04-14 10:38:14 AM  
This asshole's been trying to glass the Middle East since the Bush years.

And of course he's a war hawk because his military history is that of a National Guard reservist, which means he's probably seen jack shiat in terms of what war actually does to people.

I don't understand the hard on for provoking Iran. Weren't we doing okay, getting alongish, defusing things?

Is it about Isreal?
 
2019-04-14 10:41:07 AM  
He's a warmonger, and I'm pretty sure he's always wanted to go to war with Iran.

Maybe he should go strap on some combat boots and fight them himself.
