Iran

Post by Marty [Mori Chu] » Mon Jul 23, 2018 9:02 am

POTUS threatens Iran in a tweet last night in ALL CAPS. He essentially threatens war with them:
NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
I'm terrified. He absolutely would raise tensions with an enemy country just to distract from Russia or to help boost his popularity. I don't want another Republican-president-started war in the Middle East.

Isn't there something else going on this week that might impact the president? This is classic misdirection from him.

I'll wait and see on this one. He was doing the same thing with NK last year and people were preparing for war. It's just another distraction. He's been quiet on Iran for a while, now he's tweeting in caps.

Oh, the Manafort trial is supposed to start this week. That explains it.

I really hope that there aren't "convenient" brownouts and power outages this November 6th in any particular voting areas.

It only takes a couple in a few counties across some swing states to sway the vote.
