The U.S. announcement on Friday that it is delivering more missile-defense systems and troops to Saudi Arabia intensifies a face-off with Iran - which has warned that an attack on the country would trigger an "all-out war."

I'm sure that Trump the Great and Powerful will deal with this, although a testosterone shot for insurance is wise.

I'm pretty sure you are right for once, zed, at least as taking care of the problem. Although I'm not sure how you gained your insightful knowledge of his hormonal levels.

We could just leave Iran alone, but isntreal and nuttyyahoo are always agitating for us to do their dirty work. Sacrifice your young men for the geopolitical interests of isntreal, goyim!

Zion Don is always quite happy to do a bent-over-backwards, how-high flip for isntreal, so here we are.

Let's put that theory to the test.

Ginning up a war with Iran will, I hope, have the opposite affect Trump thinks it will in the 2020 election and that is the only reason he actually wants to start one. I do know, that in my case and many others like me will be even less likely to vote for him that I am now. Starting wars for political purposes should be a crime punishable by life in prison and no pardon should be available.

Words, words, words.

Iran would be a stable and perhaps even pro-western player in the ME if the US had just left it alone, but because of the blow-back from the Shah era, Iran has been in survival mode for the past 40 years.

Anyway, these missiles aren't just to protect Saudi, they are to protect Israel--

Israel couldn't possibly deal with the two-front barrages it would face from both Iran and Hezbollah it a conflict with Iran were to occur. They wouldn't have enough time. This is the reason for their new "relationship" with SA-- they could then focus on the western front and leave the eastern front to the US via Saudi soil.

There are people always screaming to "protect our allies" but when it comes to Israel, they really aren't an ally-- they have been an albatross around the US neck for over 50 years-- they are the primary reason our foreign policy is so ------ up in that region of the world.

The Kurds are their proverbial "canary in a coal mine" The Kurds are like Israel Jr.
Look at who supports the Kurds and 9 times out of 10 they will also be hyper-pro--Israel to the point where you begin to question their primary loyalty to the US.

I'm sure losing any chance at "Danni" voters is Trump's top concern. So there's still a chance? From some movie.

"is Trump's top concern"

Trump's top concern has always been and always will be, himself.

That would be OK if he was good at what he did. But the only thing he is good at is being good for nothing.

Everyone knows THAT.

And that...

Israel, they really aren't an ally-- they have been an albatross around the US neck for over 50 years-- they are the primary reason our foreign policy is so ------ up in that region of the world.

That too...

I am however looking at Iran from it's neighbor's point of view.

They collaborated with India against Pakistan and I can point to at least 3 incidents where we should have blown their heads off.

They need to die for that. At least the awful mulla theocracy does.

Pakistan can't attack Iran even though it will be all over in minutes. We have too many Iran-lovers in the country. Besides it's policy to never attack any muslim nation... govt will fall next day.

So my hope is that USA shows them what they are worth. Yes, it's wrong. Yes, you are more correct than I am. But I want them gone from this neighborhood.

No doubt IzraHell is an enemy of all Muslims. But IzraHell is far away and can't do nothing to Pakistan unless they work through India (and we all saw how that ended, LOL).

The other enemy of all Muslims... Iran... is right next door.

They should be dealt with first.

Israel is a false country created by British and American zionists who are fighting the people whose land they stole by force. It didn't exist as a jewish state until 1948.

The kurds have been living in northern Syria for hundreds of years continuously. They are not invaders. They are defending their homes.

That did not give them the right to launch attacks inside Turkey.

Rather than call for the wholesale destruction of another country,. maybe you should first remove all the Pertain words in your own national anthem. ;-)

Impossible in fact. LOL

Iran used to be our best friend when the Shah was in-charge.

I remember watching Iranian movies in TV when I was a kid... they really do make great movies... their production values match Hollywood.

But these Mullas... they are a cancer.

Maybe if they are removed we can have our friends back.

There were Jews who lived in the Palestine areas for many years as well. It was only the Zionists and their overseas supporters who wanted to create an Jewish state. Same with the Kurds. You should recognize the differences between the two, as well as the similarities.

Congratulations, you sound like a neocon circa 2002.

There is no similarity. They are polar opposites. Israel was mostly Christian and Muslim for 1600 years until the British conquest in 1917. The Israeli jews came from other countries as occupiers

The Kurds have just always been there.

Worse, in some ways.

Iran was famous for it's hookers.

In fact, Pakistan's dead (thank Allah!), most corrupt and useless ex-Prime Minister... Benazir Bhutto... her mother was a famous hooker out of a Tehran brothel.

I hope one day things can go back to the way they were.

All it takes to know how a hate-filled partisan person will think is to find out what the other party says. Then you can know everything you need to know. It's sad how easy it has become to split America simply because people want to hate instead of fix.
