While it's probably no loss to the world that he's gone, consider the possible consequences of such an aggressive act in the region.

Especially if that piece is correct that they put the assassination on there as a batshit option so he would pick more moderate options, but he went with it.

edit: Also, if that is correct, he is surrounded by dipshits.

Weren’t you earlier saying we can’t just cut and run from Middle East? I mean, if you can’t even retaliate against a guy conducting terrorist operations against our embassy in the territory we conquered - he was killed *in Iraq* - what’s the point in being there at all?

I understand all of the arguments against it, and I agree with them in principle, but right now my gut just says that this was a good person to kill.
Yeah but by killing him you create 10 more of him. Dick Cheney really started this whole thing in motion by putting troops on the Arabian peninsula under Bush Sr. It’s been a constant cycle of chaos since then and we’re not more safe. We have Iran in the process of building a nuke and North Korea with the ability to nuke NYC. Our foreign policy has failed big time.

But you know this is all irrelevant...we can’t afford to be there !!!

If Trump doesn’t respond, are the Democrats going to call him a pussy? The guy gets torn apart by the Dems and media no matter what he does

I don't know that the Democrats would view de-escalating a war with Iran as a 'pussy move,' per-se. They can pick a dozen other reasons to call him names, which they will.

The Ayatollah came out and said this was just a slap and more will be required. I have no idea of the internal politics of Iran, but I’d assume people are now calling the Ayatollah a pussy for an attack that missed its target massively (maybe by design)

Paul Krugman is a fucking idiot. We became the wealthiest nation in the world with ZERO PERCENT income taxes.

Watch Krugman get absolutely bitch slapped:

Looks like it might be Biden vs. Trump.

Except I've seen several clips where Biden is in an emotional point of his speech and he just forgets it...just like Trump. Biden is too senile to compete with Trump's rage.

Bernie has the head space to move around Trump's consistent talking, but Biden will start to call out Trump and then forget his point.

True, but tell that to Hillary.....

But if it takes Biden to get the voters to knock Trump out, then so be it.

A shame folks think Sanders is too much for America. He's really an FDR/McGovern 2.0 with respects to his policies. And if you look at what true socialism actually demands, he's hardly advocating for much of it.

His interview with Joe Rogan is a great primer.

The Dems probably going the Biden route will be disastrous.
