Is Trump Preparing Us for HIS War?…

Trump warns U.S. ‘may have to get in wars’

Who Ahh! Looks like Trump is preparing the US citizenry for eventual war with Iraq. Or perhaps with another favorite target of the imbecilic rightwing of the conservative cabal.  Ian immediately comes to mind.

The president specifically threatens to hit Iran “like they’ve never been hit before” if the regime provokes Washington.

With impeachment proceedings looking more and more inevitable Trump needs a major and catastrophic distraction.  Apparently war with another power is just what the political doctor described is a good guess.

President Donald Trump on Monday offered a confusing description of his foreign policy priorities as commander in chief — insisting that he was working to bring home American soldiers while warning the U.S. may soon enter into new military conflicts.
“I’m trying to get out of wars. We may have to get in wars, too. OK? We may have to get in wars,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

Sounds like saber rattling don’t ya think?

“We’re better prepared than we’ve ever been,” he continued. “If Iran does something, they’ll be hit like they’ve never been hit before. I mean, we have things that we’re looking at.”

Perhaps another almost incoherent letter to the leader of Iran? With tRump who knows. His game is chaos and confusion. Keeping EVERYBODY, including allies off balance is Trump’s MO.

Meanwhile, Trump’s directive to withdraw the last American service members from Syria has forced congressional lawmakers and Pentagon officials to reckon with the threat of a potential resurgence by Islamic State militants.

ISIS on the rise. Complements of GWB initially. Now, after ISIS was in serious recession Trump cleared the way for ISIS’s resurgence with his genius decision to give Turkey the green light to INVADE northern  Syria and cleanse the area of or Kurdish allies.

Time For Impeachment Pie…

The word of the Turkish President is about as trustworthy as that of “president” Dotard Trump.

… Ishak heads the Syriac National Council. A graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington, he is also a member of the political bureau of the Syrian Democratic Council.

Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces reported civilian casualties but provided no specific numbers.

Ishak has warned for months about a possible Turkish military incursion to settle scores with its perceived enemy, the Kurds, who were staunch allies of the United States and largely responsible for successfully battling Islamic State militants in Syria.

Despite very strong bipartisan U.S. Congressional disapproval of President Donald Trump’s abrupt decision to pull back U.S. troops from northeastern Syria, the president did not back down. He said it was too costly to keep supporting Kurdish-led forces in the region fighting Islamic State militants.

Trump made the decision during a phone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan during which Trump was meant to pressure Erdogan over a purchase of Russian warplanes.

Instead, Erdogan got a pledge from Trump to pull back U.S. troops who had worked alongside the Kurds and Syriac Christians fighting Islamic State. This decision also went against the advice of officials at the Pentagon and State Department. Turkey took it as a green light to proceed with its incursion…

Trump is not fit to be president. He must be IMPEACHED and REMOVED NOW!

Is the USA Inching Towards Another Confrontation and Loss Of Life in the Middle East?……

We must ask, is it going to be a slow cat and mouse game as the Trump administration weaves its justification for a US strike against Iran?  We’re willing to betcha that War Hawk Bolton is salivating at the prospect of blowing Iran off the map.

Question is, will Trump be so stupid as to listen to the mustachioed war monger Bolton? If he does it won’t be pretty, and, the rest of the civilized world will not be in alliance with us.

Iran is NOT the foolish nation that pulled out of the Iranian arms deal that President Obama negotiated with Iran. Trump pulled the USA out, for no good reason. Iran continued honoring the limits established by the deal up until very recently. Given US actions following Trump’s foolish decision to leave the accord we must say that if we were the Iranian government we would thumb our noses at Trump and the US as well.

Excerpt from Axios article follows..

President Trump said in in a pool spray with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Thursday that he does not believe Iran intentionally shot down an unmanned U.S. drone flying in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz, claiming it was probably “a mistake made by somebody who shouldn’t have been doing what they did.”

Why it matters: Fears over how the Trump administration will respond to the latest Iranian provocation have reached a new high. Before welcoming Trudeau, Trump met with national security adviser John Bolton, Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to discuss next steps.

  • Asked if the U.S. was prepared to strike Iran, Trump told reporters: “You’ll find out.”
  • The White House is invited Democratic and Republican leaders to attend a briefing on Iran this afternoon.

Of note: The Pentagon released a statement before Trump spoke calling the drone incident “dangerous and escalatory, claiming it was “an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset that had not violated Iranian airspace.” The Pentagon also released a video of the drone attack.

As we wait…

Trump Done With Playing Around, or, Is It The Global Community That Will Make a Difference,,,

Whenever the America first anti globalists find an issue they like they’re all in. But, when there is no conflict or potential war, one which the MIC will profit from they’re all out. As they bash the interests of the international community and the world environment.

BTW, the America firsters are right on this one. It does have global implications.

U.S Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised new sanctions against North Korea as a sign that the international community is seriously addressing the threat of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

“It is time for North Korea to realize, we are not playing anymore,” Haley said on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

The sanctions largely target North Korea’s major exports such as coal, iron and seafood, Haley said.

“A third of their trade exports have been hit, and we basically gave them a kick in the gut with a billion dollars of sanctions that they are going to begin to feel right away,” she continued, adding that the measure “sends a really strong message.”

The U.N. Security Council unanimously passed a resolution on Saturday that would slap the new sanctions on North Korea in retaliation for its repeated ballistic missile testing and continued efforts to develop nuclear weapons.
The former South Carolina governor said North Korea now has a big decision to make.

“They can either respond by pulling back and saying that they are not going to be a part of this reckless activity anymore or they can see where it goes.

“And we’ll continue to keep up the strength, and keep up the activity and make sure that we stop them,” Haley added.

Hm, is this the only site reading between the lines? It sure looks like a red line has ben draw to us. Will the Trump team remember a red line drawn not so long ago?

America, prepare for the ultimate conflict!

“I think it’s impossible to overstate the danger associated with this,” McMaster told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt in an interview that aired Saturday.

“I think it’s impossible to overstate the danger associated with a rogue, brutal regime.”

The UN sanctions follow North Korea’s two recent tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles, the most recent of which took place last week. Analysts say those ICBMs could be capable of striking parts of the U.S.

The Trump administration sees North Korea’s nuclear program as a top national security threat to the U.S.

McMaster indicated this weekend that military action against the regime is an option.

“If they had nuclear weapons that can threaten the United States, it’s intolerable from the president’s perspective. Of course, we have to provide all options to do that, and that includes a military option,” he told MSNBC.

President Trump – who was critical of the UN on the campaign trail — praised the United Nations Security Council on Saturday for voting to support the new sanctions on North Korea, after he signed a measure this week imposing new sanctions there, as well as targeting Russia and Iran.

“The United Nations Security Council just voted 15-0 to sanction North Korea. China and Russia voted with us. Very big financial impact!” Trump tweeted.

“United Nations Resolution is the single largest economic sanctions package ever on North Korea. Over one billion dollars in cost to [North Korea],” he added.

Trump’s correct. We’ll wait and see what the BLOTUS’ response is if North Korea gives him the big middle finger.

Living In The 20th Century, Still…

Rat a tat tat and a BOOM BOOM! Rather than thinking outside of the proverbial box we continue to think and act like it is 1951.

(CNN) North Korea launched a missile Friday in a show of defiance after the US convened an international meeting to call for greater sustained pressure on the isolated country.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on the world community Friday to drastically increase pressure on North Korea, warning that failure to do so could be “catastrophic” and that the US is prepared to take military action against the rogue regime if necessary.
Shortly after Tillerson finished his final activity at the UN, meeting with Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Pyongyang launched a missile toward the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, but it blew up over land, according to a US official.
The launch seemed timed to be a response to Tillerson’s call for international action and, perhaps, was North Korea calling the Trump administration’s bluff after a week of increasingly tough rhetoric about how Washington will respond to what it sees as Pyongyang’s bad behavior.
“All options for responding to future provocations must remain on the table,” Tillerson had said earlier in the day. “Diplomatic and financial leverage or power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary.”
The US official said the projectile was a “probable KN-17,” a medium-range ballistic missile, launched from Pukchang airfield. A White House statement Friday evening said the administration was aware of the test and that the President had been briefed.
Tillerson, speaking at a special US-hosted UN meeting to address the challenge, called on member countries to take three immediate steps, singling out China and warning that countries that don’t comply may face consequences. He got pushback in response from China, which accused the US of raising tensions with Pyongyang.
He urged nations to fully enforce existing sanctions on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, suspend or downgrade diplomatic relations with the already isolated country and increase its financial isolation by targeting countries and individuals that support its nuclear and ballistic missile program.
