Trump lies again. There was no "imminent threat" from "Ear-ron".

There's only ONE reason Trump killed Soleimani: Obama targeted bin Laden, found him, had him killed.

That's it.

That is loony even for you.

The recent attack on our embassy in Iraq was but round one of Iranian escalation. Trump acted decisively to defuse it.

Had Suleimani not been taken out at the opportunity, and had that gotten out, the DIms and the MSM would be crucifying Trump for not acting, and you'd be right in there joining in attacking Trump.

Oh there was definitely a reason, it's just that that reason concerned the American News cycle and the articles of impeachment.

Yeah, the attack on the embassy, a new escalation by Iran had nothing to do with it. :zany:

Had Trump failed to act and that gotten out you would be bashing Trump for failing to act.

Unlike Obimbo, Trump's redline was crossed and he took the necessary action. Placating is over. Iran has learned it is not dealing with a weak and fleckless Obimbo administration.

Imagine if Trump had not acted and that was leaked. The same hand-wringers would be part of a chorus attacking Trump for allowing Suleimani to 'getaway'. Bank on it.

Then consult with congress about what you are thinking about doing.
Unless the threat is imminent.
How can something that already happened be imminent?

So there were undefined imminent threats which Trump wouldn't tell Congress about, but he blabbered to the Faux Views talking heads that they were targeting four embassies. Except no embassies were put on higher alert status, which has happened every other time there was some indication of an impending threat.

Trump must have quit caring about embassy personnel being blown up.

Or maybe, just maybe he was lying like a rug again.

Who mentioned "imminent" but the OP, not I. And the attack on our embassy was an obvious first step, a feeling out, in a new escalation by Suleimani and Iran. Weeks prior had seen numerous rocket attacks on various bases in Iraq.

None are so blind as those who refuse to see. Or those in the throes of terminal TDS.
Unless there is an imminent threat, the president should consult congress before making war on a sovereign country.
This isn't over, maybe there is an attack on US assets sometime in the future, could be a year, two years.
How long did it take to get Bin Laden? Qaddafi?
Let's not wrap it up in a bow and schedule a victory parade until we know how it turns out.
Remember there was a time when Afghanistan looked like a great US victory....
There was a time when Iraq looked like a great US victory.....
Give this a little time.

I recognize your irrational hatred for Obama, but tell us what that "redline" was that Soleimani crossed. Last I know there was nothing.

"Failed to act" on what intelligence?

How deliciously pathologically dishonest, even for you.

The administration and it's clowns have changed the story on this at least 4 times now, and there is absolutely no rational reason to believe what twump says.

Everything they've stated so far doesn't stand up to the available evidence.

If a threat is imminent, killing the figure at the very top of the chain of command won't stop it. If killing the figure at the top of the chain of command will stop it, the threat is not imminent.

twump depends on suckers like you. Don't disappoint him.
