Not sure if Subby knows where Asia is.

If you're going for the apocalypse, you're gonna need all 4 horsemen. Hurry up and rapture these jackasses, J-man.

Seriously, didn't we already do this?

Are we going to drone strike the head of Iranian's military while he's in Iraq at Iraq's request again?

/Also, didn't Iraq tell us to GTFO a couple of months ago?
 
2020-03-12 4:44:23 PM  
This is a clever ploy by the Iranians to get captured and then spread Coronavirus to our troops.  Obviously.

Maybe Iran was in the friendships we made along the way.

if you were a bad guy, or group, or country, this would be a really good time to pull something naughty with literally everyone's focus somewhere else.

Is it strange that I'm suddenly longing for the normalcy of Trump's unhinged foreign policy?

 Start? We never left.

Let's see, the mouthbreather in chief has total command of the pandemic, the economy, and policy so I'm sure that this will be handled properly.
 
2020-03-12 5:22:42 PM  
Oh good, just the distraction president Dumb fark needs.
 
2020-03-12 5:22:47 PM  
Yeah start a war with Iran while a pandemic goes on. Great farking plan.

I mean, if you gotta hit Iran when they are at their weakest, this is it.
 
2020-03-12 5:23:29 PM  
Here's an option for ya: "get the fark out of Iraq."

Maybe Trump* heard that nuclear fallout can kill the coronavirus, and he really really wants to fire a nuke before he leaves office (one way or another)

We now know Mike Pompeo's Fark handle.

This attack smells of desperation, don't get goaded into being the bad guy at a moment when large troop mobilizations are ill-advised. Circle the wagons and let COVID-19 take out the baddies.
 
2020-03-12 5:25:11 PM

Sending troops to a region inundated with COVID19 sounds like a great idea.
 
2020-03-12 5:27:45 PM  
So that's what we're going with. Wagging the dog.

The best time to start a land war with Iran is definitely in the middle of a global pandemic while our stock market is crashing.

Russian troops are currently massing in Transnistria and Moldova has closed its borders to the rest of Europe.

Can I just say I'm glad I completed my scratch off map of Europe last year? This would be a shiat year for 20+ country travel, and some of these countries may not exist in a year from now.

Asia is a pretty big place , https://www.worldometers.info/geograp​h​y/how-many-countries-in-asia/
 
2020-03-12 5:29:49 PM  
Well, for the trump admin, it is a good time to create a distraction that he, no doubt, thinks will make people rally around him. Why not start a war with a country that is hard hit with the corona virus?

It would be an awful shame if North Korea got hit with COVID-19 so hard that they couldn't man their side of the DMZ.

/of course the south side would probably be a shiatshow too
 
2020-03-12 5:37:02 PM  
He's cheesed-off because everyone's talking about the Corona virus instead of him.  He misses/needs to be in the spotlight 24/7.
 
2020-03-12 5:37:27 PM  
I was just thinking we needed some war to go along with this plague, all we're missing is famine and death to show up and we'll be all set to light this candle.

The question never really has been "could South Korean take North Korea in a war".  South Korea would win.  The question is, "would China intervene on on the DPRK's behalf" and "what sort of losses is South Korean willing to stomach in order to get it done?"

I was hoping to be the first generation to live through a pandemic, depression, nuclear war, and melting of the ice caps.  What a time to be alive!

Two were killed but the important thing is there were no casualties because we are a strong unstoppable peoples.

And here I thought it as all of the fixed artillery pieces the North has pointed at Seoul that served as the deterrent. I've heard estimates of 10 million deaths in Seoul if the North ever decided to jump that particular shark.
