twitter reports are always conflicting. Saudis saying they shot down a scud, people on the ground saying it felt like a meteor strike or an earthquake, Yemen claiming they targeted an airfield even though SCUDs have shit accuracy at that distance and you're basically just lobbing explosives at the Saudi capital.

LOL do you know how far Riyadh is from the Yemeni border with Saudi? It would take a Scud quite a long time to reach Riyadh. Saudis have loads of Patriots and they would have shot it down long before it reached Riyadh, as they have before many times in the last couple of years.

So a US congressman just admitted that the US strategy is to attack Iran through ISIS. We should be investigating the collusion with ISIS instead of Russia. Smoking guns all over the place.

It definitely seems like the Syria strategy has been refocused to focus on Iran than ISIS.

Anything you do to affect regime change in Syria you have to deal with Iran. They are half the forces on the regimes side.

In terms of his positions, Rohrabacher voted to repeal Obamacare,[3] denies global warming,[4] is a staunch opponent of illegal immigration,[5] and favors the legalization of marijuana.[6]

In foreign policy, he supported withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan,[7] called Trump to punish Turkish President Erdogan on embassy violence,[8] sided with Russia in the Russia–Georgia war, supported the annexation of Crimea in 2014[9] and supports cooperating with Russia in Syria[10] to the extent that House majority leader Kevin McCarthy said allegedly joking that Vladimir Putin pays both Donald Trump and Rohrabacher.[11]

He was warned in 2012 by the FBI that Russian spies may have been trying to recruit him to act on Russia's behalf, after he met with a member of the Russian foreign ministry privately in Moscow.[12] Following the ISIS terrorist attacks in Tehran on June 7th, 2017, in which 17 innocent civilians were killed, he suggested that the attack could be viewed as ‘a good thing', and surmised that President Trump might have been behind the coordination of this terrorist attack.[13]"

Bump for Trump allegedly wanting to torpedo the nuclear deal.


FYI the goal here isn't an outright war with Iran, so much as it is to provoke Iran into cranking up Hezbollah and Hamas terror attacks across the Middle East (and perhaps further). Conservatives need scarey muslims.

so Republicans are responsible for scary muslims, and not scary muslims themselves?

They're responsible if they purposefully provoke them. Perhaps I should have said the "Intent is to provoke Iran into cranking up hamas and hezbollah?"

Trump is nuts. Seems like his approach is to pick a version of reality he wants to believe and bend facts to match this delusion.

Mad at Sessions for doing the right thing and recuse, mad at tillerson for acknowledging Iran as being compliant. This is a very Cheney approach to foreign policy.

Can someone give me the TLDR on the Iran nuke deal as well as why Trump wants to disband it so ardently?

I spend a lot of time reading about Russia/Eastern Europe but know almost nothing about Iran.

i honestly can't tell if it's because he hates obama or if the Russia collusion story is 100% true and he's just doing everything he can (on Russia's behalf) to split us from all of our allies

but on the real, i don't even know what the deal entails

It’s Obama. He is still really butthurt over the correspondents dinner. It hurt his thimble sized dick self and he will do anything to destroy his legacy country and American people be damned.

Russia is not happy about decertification I’m sure..

So basically, the Secretary of State says whether Iran is complying or not. Then the President also says whether he thinks Iran is complying or not and has to prove why he thinks one way or the other.

Did Trump provide any explanation at all or did he just say he isn't certifying it?

- trump uses Kushner to work with bin salman (the progressive Saudi letting women drive and stuff) to try to seize power in Saudi Arabia
- MBS (bin salman) closes border with Yemen to thwart houthi rebels
- MBS accuses Iran of supporting Houthis
- This is considered an act of war
- US backs SA In war against Iran

Looks like SA is asking for international cooperation in resolving the conflict with Iran, I don’t think this will lead to war, but maybe... at the minimum grounds to reinstate sanctions on Iran

This assumes MBS is able to hold on to his newly seized power— seems really tenuous but i don’t know enough about SA

I’m thinking this is more volatile and dangerous for America than the North Korea situation. I can’t imagine this helps with oil prices too
