Why does Trump want to start a war during a pandemic? It is not going to boost the economy.
 
2020-04-23 11:54:31 AM  
Maybe things wouldn't be so bad with Iran right now if Trump hadn't reneged on our Nuclear arms deal with them and then assassinated their top general as an attempted distraction from his impeachment. I dunno, just spitballing here.

Yeah we're going to war with China cause they made us fark up the Coronavirus response, and we're going to war with Iran cause they looked at us funny.

But Iran so far away.
 
2020-04-23 11:58:15 AM  
much like with many of America's foreign policy announcements, Iranian statements like this are purely for internal consumption. Everybody knows Iran would be absolutely wiped out in a shooting war with the US. It wouldn't be pretty, but they're not coming out on top of that, and they know it, and we know it.

But much like a lot of the relatively foolish statements that come out a various state governments and the White House, and elsewhere in the world, this is not a foreign policy announcement, this is a piece of propaganda for internal consumption.

Pointless blaster and nothing more.

Presidents with bad economies rarely win.

Presidents during wartime always win.

...that being said, I'm okay with this.  Their boats *can* hurt ours, if we sit there and do nothing.

This new roi gives our navy permission if they need it.

I doubt sincerely any of them take "advantage" of it.

If Iran sinks a carrier Tehran will turn into a cloud of vapor pretty shortly afterward.

I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.

Someone should tell him that we sink boats, blow up buildings/tanks/etc., and shoot down planes/satellites/missiles.

I know words. I have the best words.

I mean, sure, if the US wants to be more of an international pariah than Trump has already made it, attack Iran and then nuke them when they fight back.

They typically go down when you blow big holes in them.

That will certainly lead to good things, gooder things, maybe the goodest things.  Russia going to sit this one out?  Do you really want the end of times that bad trumper?

You could blow a gunship up, and then shoot it down, but at that stage the shooting down probably becomes redundant.

The distraction value is yuge.  People might forget about the deaths all around them when they see foreign deaths on tv.

Uh, if Iran is going to attack the US Navy, it's not going to be using the speedboats, it's going to be using the mobile land-based cruise missile launchers. Even with Aegis and CIWS and all that, the US Navy is going to have to take the threat seriously, especially if the Iranians can get a few dozen missiles in the air in a short timeframe.

The answer to this should be obvious by now.  And there are actually 2 answers:

1. Because he's an idiot.
2. Because he doesn't think more than half a move ahead.  Because he's an idiot.

Step 1: Start fight.

Step 2: Get sunk, taken prisoners.

Step 3: Give all our sailors the Magavirus.

Step 4: Prpphet!
