On the one hand: meh... oh well, anyway...

On the other: I'm sure the Iranians will respond in a cool, collected manner and not do something crazy.

Can they wait 8 weeks or will they go apeshiat? Let's find out.

Subby, "we" aren't Iranian. Therefore "we" are not boned.

Of course, maybe you aren't Iranian. Maybe you're just a pants wetting coward.

If Iran retaliates against Israel the US is going in.  Then we're boned.

You... are aware that something like this isn't just a local squabble, right?

Trump decapitated DoJ and replaced the SecDef and other top positions with yes men. We likely signed off on this assassination, even if it was carried out by Mossad or proxy agents. \

Iran will now retaliate (as it is its right to do), likely taking out an Israeli general or other politician. Israel will retaliate further, possibly with airstrikes. Then Iran will respond again, likely via its terror network, blowing up, say, a cafe or theater in France or Germany.

Do... you see where I'm going with this?

Murdering scientists is never a good thing.  We need more smart people in the world, not fewer.

Israel has been bumping off Iranian scientists ever since Israel got the bomb.  This is hardly new.

I don't think Israel can help themselves, given the people they have chosen as leaders.  Not that I can point any fingers.  The problem is that they're not solving anything.  They're delaying the inevitable, and making it worse when it gets here.

What's new about this is that it's a concerted effort to monkeywrench any possible diplomatic solution to solving Iranian nuclear proliferation. The Mossad was given the green light in this case to destabilize the situation as much as possible before Biden takes over.

This could very well explain why Trump fired all those people on the Defense Policy Board.  They objected to him starting WWIII to stay in power.

Trump will finally have his chance to drop a nuke on someone.

He REALLY wants to drop a nuke.

I hope the officer carrying the "football" has found a good hiding spot.

So admitted failure in curtailing Iranian nuclear program...if only there was some sort of agreement between Iran, and say...a handful of other western nations regarding full inspections and whatnot....

Oh well, I guess murder it is then.

Meanwhile, pop open a bottle of Pompeo's, from the rive gauche or some other bank.  Just a coincidence.

Trump just organized some "treaties" to load up the Iran-hating Middle Eastern governments with American weapons. They may not need you for a  few weeks.
 
2020-11-27 1:25:42 PM  
Maybe Iran wants a bomb because they're surrounded by US troops and US allies?  Maybe if we didn't coup their democracy and play them against Iraq for funsies, they wouldn't hate us so much?

Hmm.  No.  It is the Iranians are wrong.  And any attempt at defending themselves must be met with maximum force.

I'm thinking this is part of Israel's plan to ramp up tensions to the breaking point with Iran, assuming it was Mossad who did this.

Biden has always been 100% in favour of supporting everything Israel has ever wanted.

https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-x​p​m-2009-jul-06-na-biden6-story.html

"Vice President Joe Biden signaled that the Obama administration would not stand in the way if Israel chose to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, even as the top U.S. military officer said any attack on Iran would be destabilizing...

...
Biden was asked whether Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was taking the right approach by indicating that Israel would take matters into its own hands if Iran did not show a willingness to negotiate by the end of the year.
"Look, Israel can determine for itself -- it's a sovereign nation -- what's in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else," Biden replied. He added that this was the case, "whether we agree or not" with the Israeli view."


The Obama Admin walked it back immediately but now ol' neo-lib warmongerer Joe is at the helm.

That's not how constitution works.  The presidency will swap war or not.

This could also explain why Pompeo was hanging out in Israel off and on for the past two or three weeks.  In fact he's been making regular trips there since back in July.

Why is everyone so sure it was Israel?
