    20 years of Diplomacy? What diplomacy? Diplomacy like every year staging a massive war game mock invasion of your nation complete with bombers and jets flying righty up to your borders, missile launching ships and air craft carriers, mock missile deployments, and pretend to obliterate your nation even worse than we did in the 1950s. Diplomacy like perpetual sanctions to isolate your country from most of the rest of the world. Diplomacy like blocking trade between North and South Korea or with other nations, and actively interfering and preventing any reconciliation or trade dialogue between North and South Korea. Diplomacy like intentionally sabotaging the Sunshine Policy that was embraced by both countries and would open up trade, dialogue and gave South Korea to create its own industrial enterprise zones inside North Korea, and actually called for process to begin demilitarizing the “demilitarized zone”.

    Tax cuts are not the reason "the country doesn't have enough money." The country doesn't have enough money because the government takes too much of it (via taxation, printing, and/or borrowing). The government takes too much of it (via taxation, printing and/or borrowing) because it spends too much. Spending is the problem, not tax cutting (no matter how much you try to connect or conflate the two). Taxation, printing and borrowing are problems because too much of those things are being done, not too little.

    Yes you are absolutely right that it would be a catastrophe. Yes, Washington has air superiority from the get go, but it would not be as quickly and easily as the first gulf war. Even just an air invasion would be more costly than the Washington establishment admits. The vastly larger area, terrain, and hardened target sites alone makes it more risky and costly. Yes, air alone was the ingoing belief for victory for Korea, and Vietnam, and Soviets in Afghanistan, and they all lost in the end. Be skeptical of buying into the sales pitch that air superiority trumps everything and it will be a cakewalk. We’ve heard that over and over before. Of course Washington could and would drops lots of bombs and missiles, but they will still lose jets and pilots. Iran has both S-300 as well as Chinese air defense SAM systems. While limited, it is certainly not nil nor impotent. And the truth is, Washington really does not know how effective Iran’s air defenses are. It won’t be free. Washington will blow up things; kill some people; but they will lose some jets and pilots; and in the end have negligible military effect. It will not accomplish any strategic objective. Not to mention Iran has hardened and secured its most important targets. And of course Iran has tactically scattered its military targets and missile launch locations strategically throughout its very large and mountainous terrain in hard to reach and protected locales. Additionally cheap decoys are probably being used and will certainly be implemented to saturate Washington;s ability to strike targets. Meanwhile Washington has provided plenty of near targets for retaliation. Response would be asymmetrical. Even if Washington launches strikes from near bases, it has 2 aircraft carriers and twenty ships as sitting targets in the Persian gulf for the attack boats and the anti-ship ballistic missiles. In addition Washington has extended plenty of nearby targets in Iraq, Afghanistan and throughout the middle east. Iran has the Sejjil missiles that can reach throughout the middle east. Then there is supplying Shia militia throughout the middle east. Iraq is now an ally of Iran, Shia controlled, and majority Shia. Iran could easily supply Shia militia in Iraq, as well as militia in Afghanistan, wreaking havoc for Washington in the middle east. And then of course there is Hezbollah - man per man perhaps the most effective ground fighting force in the middle east. The only force to take on Israel head to head and against odds and deliver Israel a humiliating defeat. Now Hezbollah is equipped with modern high tech smaller missiles. Response would be asymmetrical and unending. Any air attack on Iran would not come without costs. Then of course even Washington does not dispute that Iran has the capacity to shut down the Strait of Hormuz - trapping any Washington ships and shutting off vital shipping lanes from Saudi Arabia. So of course Washington can drop lots of bombs, but they will not achieve any positive outcome and not come out unscathed.

    written by neil clark saturday april 29, 2017 What would have happened had there been no Iraq War in 2003 and Saddam Hussein had stayed in power? Where would we be today? It’s the 28th of April 2017. Saddam Hussein, president of Iraq, now a member state of the newly reconstituted United Arab Republic (with Syria and Egypt), is celebrating his 80th birthday. There are big processions on a gloriously sunny and very hot day in Baghdad. Among visiting foreign heads of state was Zimbabwe’s 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe, who joked that if Saddam gave up smoking Cohibas and started drinking herbal teas he might even live to be as old as him. However, Western leaders boycotted the celebrations, with British Prime Minister Theresa May – who says (at least ten times a day) that she supports a “strong and stable government” in the UK, denouncing Saddam as a “despicable tyrant.” Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson went even further, calling Saddam “a dreadful mugwump thingymujig.” State television shows Saddam’s favorite movie, The Sound of Music, on a loop. In his address to the nation, the grey-haired Iraqi strongman, now appearing old and quite frail, looks back at his time in power and identifies the avoidance of war in 2003 as a major turning point. A planned US-led invasion of Iraq was averted by mass public protests, an unprecedented level of civil disobedience in Western countries, and threats of mutinies from soldiers, who refused to take part in an illegal enterprise.

    That doesn't surprise me a bit. After all Matt has always been allowed to be here and they censored free speech in 2012 under the guise of appealing to Republicans.

Trump is helping Rand pass his healthcare plan, if you think Trump actually supported RyanCare then you are foolish and you need to go read the threads where I addressed this topic. Rand was talking to Trump 2-3 times a week, and Rand told Trump straight up it wasn't going to pass, it didn't have the votes. Trump knew it wasn't going to pass, so he supported it to make sure it was all Paul Ryan's failure and none of it could be blamed on him. Trump hates Paul Ryan.

Trump is going to help save Syria, with Russia's help.

Trump made a good call as a politician. Libertarian souls can bitch all they want about principles and being conned. Trump is going to disappointed again. I have enough hairchest.

Just answer the question. Which game is Trump playing?
