Let's Get Ready to Rumble!

"US officials sharply condemned Iran on Tuesday as "provocative" and "irresponsible" after it conducted its first missile test since President Donald Trump took office. 

The US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, had strong words for Iran following UN Security Council discussions on reports of Iran conducting a ballistic missile test. 

"This is absolutely unacceptable," Haley said. "We will act accordingly ... we will be loud."

There is nothing in the recent nuclear agreement between Iran and six other countries, including the United States, that forbids this.

I think we can be pretty clear where this is leading.

I just want to remind people that Iran has three times the population that Iraq did when we invaded Iraq, and has a fully functioning army, not one decimated by ten years of sanctions.  And look how we did in Iraq.  This is going to go really well.

A little more:  By the way, Iran doesn't have any missiles capable of reaching the U.S. or even Western Europe.  So if Trump does start a war with Iran, guess what country those missiles are going to be headed for.  I hope Israelis will enjoy having twice elected a right wing tool of the Republican party.

My 2 cents says that chances of a major conflict are better than 50-50 and it sucks. This fuck is pure nutso.

Sound like Trump is trying to show how big his dick is. He better keep his hands behind is back.

The Trump administration is calling someone else "provocative and irresponsible"? It's beyond self-parody.

Hmm, I thought that other nations were going to fear and respect us so much more under Orange Julius Caesar.

I put the chances at better than 90-10; i.e. an absolute certainty if he is allowed to get away with it. I remember tough guy Reagan attacking Nicaragua, population 3 million, and Grenada, population 110,000. Like Reagan and Bush, Trump just has to propagandize his supporters into thinking some pathetic little defenseless country is an existential threat to the United States, and then off we go. Of course, Reagan was only a terminally corrupt warmonger, and Bush was a gullible fool, not a mentally ill bully, so there is a good chance that Trump will pick a target where we have even less chance of success than we had in Iraq. His favorite enemy seems to be Iran, but maybe Mexico or even China will be the target of his megalomaniac belligerence. And God knows, after yesterday, maybe he's getting ready to invade Australia.
