The nonsensical statement below from the Pentagon announcing that the US government has committed an act of war against Iran should frighten everyone:

“At the direction of the president, the US military has taken decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a US-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

“This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”

“The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.”

Murdering a high-ranking official of a government is an act of war.  It is impossible for an act of war to protect US personnel abroad.

It is impossible for an act of war against Iran to deter future Iranian attack plans.  Where there was no Iranian attack plan, there now is in response to the murder of Soleimani.

Committing an act of war does not “protect our people and our interests.”  It jeopardizes them.

How is it possible for the Pentagon to issue such a nonsensical laughable justification for murdering a top official of another country?

Where was Trump’s mind? Just as he is emerging from the impeachment hoax, why did he commit an impeachable act?  Trump attacked another country without Congressional authorization.  He thumbed his nose at Congress and the law.  It is the duty of the President to enforce the laws of the United States, not break them.  The Democrats now have a real impeachable offense to hang around Trump’s neck.

But they will not make us of it. Trump struck down Soleimani, because that is what Netanyahu wanted. The main leaders of the impeachment hoax are Jews, and they are not going to line up against Israel.  Adam Schiff, for example, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who is leading the impeachment, gave his approval to Soleimani’s murder when he tweeted that Suleimani “was responsible for unthinkable violence and world is better off without him.”

Israel is the main culprit in this crime. Trump is a secondary culprit. Soleimani himself bears responsibility.  He should have known that he was a target and not exposed himself so carelessly.  The Russian government also bears responsibility.  Russia, China and Iran should long ago have formed a highly visible alliance.  Such an alliance would have prevented the crazy and irresponsible act that Israel manuevered Trump into committing.  But Putin doesn’t want war, and apparently historians have convinced Putin that alliances are the cause of war. Thus Putin avoids alliances, taking his que instead from American libertarians who say that free trade is the basis of peace. Strength is the guarantor of peace, and strength rests in a powerful alliance against US/Israeli aggression.

Iran’s response was predictable and unfortunate.  Iran declared it will take revenge, and most likely will.  Iran’s revenge will give Israel the war it wants between the US and Iran.

Iran would have done better to take its revenge and deny responsibility.

Idiot American politicians, one of whom could end up as President, are furthering the cause of war by working up American patriotism with claims, false of course, that Iran is a “terrorist state” determined to harm America, that Iran is responsible for thousands of deaths, including hundreds of Americans, and so forth.

We have heard all of this before.  It is the US that is the terrorist state, having destroyed in whole or part seven Muslim countries in the 21st century, producing millions of deaths, injuries, and dispossessed and displaced peoples.  I knew it was going to get worse when the Russian government permitted Israel to continue attacking Syrian targets after Russia had rescued Syria from Washington’s proxy army.  

As long as Israel runs US foreign policy in Israel’s interest, and as long as “non-compliant” countries are content for Washington to knock them off one by one, war will continue to be our future.

Iran has been at war against us since 1979. It never stopped. Only the naive or uninformed would consider this to be a new war. Their attack on our embassy in Iraq was just the latest skirmish.

You'd better make that 1953 when we overthrew their elected government because they wanted to tax the oil companies, and barring access to levy the tax they confiscated them.

Not like Arabs or Jews, who would knife you in the back with a smile. The Iranians are thoughtful, kind, and temperate. Super square by US standards, but as conservatives we should appreciate that.

Hezbollah to the north and Iraq, Syria and Iran spoiling for a fight. The only thing that stops them is they have other objectives and much closer targets

The problem with this sort of personal thing is that when this crisis passes, as it will, it will be gone, but I will still hate you. So, by going over the top with the personal insults, because you don't like my politics on this particular issue, you merely made it certain that we will never cooperate on anything again. This is why you will find yourself with fewer and fewer allies and friends as you age, and when the crisis hits you - as it inevitably does - nobody will have your back, because everybody will see you as an asshole, and won't care about your fall. That's the way it works.

I've known one Iranian man. He is a good man and I like him a lot. He is married to a french woman. I only know him because I worked for him on multiple occasions. He left Iran in 1967 I believe he told me. He basically said Iran was run by fanatics. He seemed secular and certainly not muslim.

Muslims by definition are pieces of shit. All of them without exception. I define a muslim as someone who believes all of the Koran and practices it. I'm not talking about muslims in name only.

I also know a Jewish man I work for. Best customer ever very nice and a good person.

In the article it says a lie that Trump acted without congressional approval. That is a lie. Paul Craig Roberts is a liar. Also we are allowed to defend our embassy. The war powers act gives Trump authority also if he chose.

Iran is our evil enemy and the sooner their leaders are dead the better.

Can't stand truth, can you warmonger?

Israel’s interest in the assassination continues to be my focus. Israel appears to have been a factor in Trump’s decision, beginning with the fact that his largest donor has called for a strike on Iran. As former White House negotiator Aaron David Miller tweeted:

If the Israelis weren’t somehow involved in this, I’d be stunned. Sulrimani’s been on their list for a long time.

The mainstream press keeps sidestepping the Israel angle, surely out of concern for antisemitism. So let’s connect the dots.

Israel is virtually the only country that supported this operation, even the mainstream tells us. On MSNBC yesterday, Kristen Welker stated that American “partners and allies in the region” were against the killing “with the exception of Israel.”

Murdering a high-ranking official of a government is an act of war. It is impossible for an act of war to protect US personnel abroad.

A submarine comes to periscope depth with intent to shoot a torpedo at an ocean liner. A U.S. destroyer sees it, hunts it down, and drops a depth charge on it, sinking it. All US personnel on the ocean liner protected.

It is impossible for an act of war against Iran to deter future Iranian attack plans.

Dropping a load of thermo-nuclear bombs on and over Iran sends them back into the stone age. Iran glows in the dark for thousands of years. Iran has no future.

Where there was no Iranian attack plan, there now is in response to the murder of Soleimani.

Iran pounds sand with ballistic missiles. The fireworks display ends and they rejoice. Iran's plan was to go pound sand.

Committing an act of war does not “protect our people and our interests.” It jeopardizes them.

It protects people if it prevents or deters an adversary from taking planned or threatened action.

How is it possible for the Pentagon to issue such a nonsensical laughable justification for murdering a top official of another country?

By calling him a uniformed member of an opposing armed force engaged in conflict of an international nature.

Where was Trump’s mind? Just as he is emerging from the impeachment hoax, why did he commit an impeachable act?

Has Nancy moved to impeach Trump for retaliating against Soleimani? Will she pocket veto the impeachment? How many impeachments will her pockets hold?

The Democrats now have a real impeachable offense to hang around Trump’s neck.

And just think, the ballistic missiles were paid for with the pallet loads of cash and other payments given to the Iranians by Obama. They will want to have that front and center as an election issue.

But they will not make us[e] of it.

The Dems and Neo-cons are already committing suicide, they can make double sure, as if Epstein had shot himself and blown his brains out and then hanged himself.

Trump struck down Soleimani, because that is what Netanyahu wanted.

Trump does what Trump wants. If it happens to make Netanyahu happy, that's coincidental.

The main leaders of the impeachment hoax are Jews, and they are not going to line up against Israel. Adam Schiff, for example, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who is leading the impeachment, gave his approval to Soleimani’s murder when he tweeted that Suleimani “was responsible for unthinkable violence and world is better off without him.”

Adam Schiff just wanted to prove that not every word out of his mouth is a lie.

Israel is the main culprit in this crime.

The Dems are going to impeach Netanyahu.

Soleimani himself bears responsibility.

Not anymore.

The Russian government also bears responsibility.

The Dems are going to impeach Putin. Or get another reset button.

Iran’s response was predictable and unfortunate.

Iran pounded sand. It is unfortunate for Iran that all they could do was pound sand.

Iran declared it will take revenge, and most likely will.

And so they did. They pounded sand with a vengeance.

Iran’s revenge will give Israel the war it wants between the US and Iran.

Nope. All it did was move some sand.

Iran would have done better to take its revenge and deny responsibility.

Probably true when all they could do was pound sand.

I have seen no world wars since two atom bombs were dropped. I have not seen anyone wanting to relive the experience enough to repeat it either.

Jackasses like you led the world from WW1 to WW2.

Every fucking war has been based on lies - why would you think this time is different? Oh, right - Trump's in charge.

We are not in a war.

War is "a contention between two or more States through their armed forces, for the purpose of overpowering each other and imposing such conditions of peace as the victor pleases." II Lassa Oppenheim International Law 56 (1906), Mary Ellen O'Connell, International Law and the Use of Force, Foundation Press, New York 2005 at page 3.

From O'Connell at 7:

The United States has not formally declared war since the Second World War. The four Geneva Conventions adopted in 1949 for the protection of war victims are triggered by the existence of actual armed conflict regardless of war declarations. According to Article 2, common to all four Conventions, the Conventions apply in

all cases of declared war or of any other armed conflict which may arise between two or more of the High Contracting Parties, even if the state of war is not recognized by one of them.

What mattered after 1945 was actual fighting, not the 19th century formalities that might mean a war was occurring legally even if no one ever fired a shot. ... But indicative of the fact "war" is not longer the significant legal term it once was, the United States fought a war on poverty and a war on drugs. Declarations of war lost their importance, too, but with the loss of this formal legal device, the law became more uncertain. The Geneva Conventions are triggered by "armed conflict;" the Charter's Article 2(4) actual[ly] prohibits "the use of force."

Now we have armed conflicts of an international nature if it involves two nation States. It need not have a definable beginning or end, or even a definable military objective.

Oh, right - Trump's in charge.

He's doing the bidding of the PNAC neocons and deep state.

Gee, I thought the neo-cons and deep staters hated Trump and impeached him.

Haven't you clowns learned anything from the debacles in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Yeah, from those and earlier unending conflicts, I learned that I want our military to bring such overwhelming force to armed conflict that the conflict is so one-sided that we have as few casualties as possible and the others will be dissuaded from trying to repeat their act.

You on the other hand, would decry the use of the atomic bombs that ended WW2, and you would like Marquis de Queensbury rules to apply, and for there to be an equal playing field. Fuck that. I say no war, but if war comes, let the other son of a bitch die for his country. You would have sat back and sent the troops marching up the mountains to fight hand to hand, in the true spirit of a fair fight. War or armed conflict is about life and death, not a fair fight. The military does not choose when and where it engages in battle. The objective is to beat the shit out of the other side as quickly as possible and come home alive.

The main lesson learned is to never let idiots like you near the levers of power.

Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

[Deckard #25] Eat a buffet of dicks.

[Deckard #27] I served in the military you GD cocksucker.

What is with your fixation with dicks and cocksucking? I swear you are fixated on sucking Steve McQueen's cock. I really do. I may just have to come over there and slap the dick out of your mouth. Or maybe I'll just have to take you out to pasture, stretch an old cow cunt over your head, and see if the bull can fuck some brains into you. In the meantime, just back up twenty paces, sprint forward as fast as you can, do a triple somersault, and disappear up your own ass.

[Deckard #27] I served in the military you GD cocksucker.

I salute your service. That must have been after your butt buddy Bill instituted that there don't ask, don't tell policy. Your unit was the manly manly one where the men were men and the sheep knew it. I wouldn't know much about that there don't ask, don't tell. But as long as you have started your dick measuring contest, I did my twenty years active duty, and ten years inactive reserve, and retired. But that was before your generation got that there don't ask, don't tell thing going.

[Deckard #25] Another Lindsey Graham/John McCain clone cheering for WWIII.

Sorry to disappoint, but I have long been on record as having voted for Obama. It was my statement of what I thought about the GOP nominating McCain. And let us not forget that McCain gave an invitation to Obama to eulogize him, and eulogize Obama did.

[Deckard #27] Fuck you and the other chickenhawks like "bonespur" Trump.

Well, fuck you and your war heroes like John Kerry and Da Nang Dick Blumenthal. And don't forget to pay tribute to your heroine and survivor of the Battle of Bosnia, Hillary Clinton.

And that article is still a mindless load of never-Trumper bullshit. Your only defense of that horse crap so far is to ball up your tiny fists and scream cocksucker.
