    Pompus Pompeo is just another one of tRUMPS nut jobs. tRUMPS got a few BOLTS loose with Bolten war hawk too. tRUMP is way out of his league and if he gets US in another war he has to go.

    Trump is very unpredictable person and anything is possible
    to happen . And if he declare war against Iran , it will serve for the benefit of extremist groups in Afghanistan and in middle east region .
    War is not agame . Only idiots think they won at the expense of
    others death including soldiers .

      Siding with the corrupt Saudi regime responsible for 911 and still playing to their tune in Yemen war interference. Trump using his gut again.

    Smart move. You wouldn't want any embassy employees getting murdered like 66 of them were during the 13 embassy attacks that George W. Bush allowed on his watch.

    I read the Mueller report.
    I see it all too clearly now.
    Putin was afraid of Hillary Clinton, so afraid, in fact, that he used the polling information that Paul Manafort sold to the Russians in order to get the followers of the Republican party to crappy flop on command at the mere mention of "KILLARY!" a full two and a half years after the election.
    It's like they don't know that they won the "war" and "KILLARY!" actually lost the election.
    I believe there are simple steps in order for those stricken with Spammed head meats that will finally afford these Comrades to become Americans again.
    1.) Delete Facebook.
    2.) Fire your spray tanner.
    3.) Simply disconnect cable.
    4.) NEVER let TheXvid autoplay videos (you'll end up thinking that lasers cause floods).
    Following these simple and easy steps is the only prescription for Fox News Zombie Viewing Syndrome.
    END IT NOW 🤯

      Israel doesn’t want to mess around with Iran. Iran can wipe them out from the map.
      If US attacks Iran, Iran will attack Israel. Iran Missiles have been pointing at Israel 24/7.

    It's the U.S. pushing for war, not Iran. Trump campaigned on ending the wars and being against intervention, but he has rampant up the wars and is starting 2 new wars. But corporate media supports it, even tho they will call him unfit to be POTUS. It just proves that corporate media is bought and paid for by the military industrialized complex. They don't care who is POTUS, war is money.

      @Justin Norton Iran is the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the region, watch if Iran is gone, there will be less killings.

    • Justin Norton
      Justin Norton Month ago +2

      @Wonder Bread TM , when and where has Iran attacked the U.S. or its military? Iran was still upholding the deal after trump backed out and applied sanctions. And he is also pushing for an illegal coup of Venezuela. Drone strikes have gone up 400%, and our military has killed more civilians now, than the Taliban. So either you're completely uniformed, or you should not be using the internet without supervision.
