Oil Tanker Attacks

Postby Wabash » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:39 am

Who else doesn't care about these attacks on oil tankers?

Why aren't the navies of the countries where those ships are registered rushing to their aid?

Yet another stupid pretext to try and get us into another unnecessary war.

Just like the one in Iraq and the bogus WMD claims.

It makes no sense why Iran would be behind these attacks.


They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Crazy situation there. US intelligence says Iran is behind it but I can't think of anything they'd stand to gain from it. And the world has become so conditioned to not believe anything the US says that nobody knows what to think. It's like we're waiting for an opinion from a "believable source" but who would that be and are any "trustworthy" countries investigating them? --:--

It gets stranger with the captain of the ship contradicting what our government told us.

Saw a great meme that said.

"Don't confuse dying for oil the same as fighting for freedom."

Strange situation there.

A president with no credibility telling us Iran's doing it.
A president with no credibility to lead us into a war or to finish one.
No confirmation from anyone who does have credibility, whether they're military or allies.
No backing from any allies except two whose lifelong ambitions are to start a war with Iran.
No backing from Congress.
.
It's still perfectly reasonable to say "IF Iran is behind it" as well as "You know, this wouldn't have happened if you hadn't pulled out of the nuclear agreement."
It's still perfectly reasonable to think that Saudi Arabia, Israel, one of the factions in Yemen or another party is behind it.
And Americans. Don't. Want. A. War. Especially one started on false or mistaken pretenses.

Correction to the above: A noob for acting Secretary of Defense. The previous acting one just quit. Probably didn't want to have anything to do with this.

Let's hope that isn't the case. Reports are that he beat his wife. And his son attacked her with a baseball bat. Geez!

Iran is claiming it shot down a US drone in Iranian airspace.

Iran is claiming it was in Iranian airspace. The US is claiming it wasn't.

My response. Who cares?

Iran does not pose an existential threat.

We don't need another unnecessary war.

You don't want a war. I don't want a war.

Our wag the dog president has had a spot of bother lately, so who knows?

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the drone.

News outlets are reporting that Trump called off a military strike against Iran for shooting down a US drone.

Thank you Mr. President.

Unlike Obama's critics, I won't accuse him of dithering.

The President said we were "cocked and loaded." The phrase, of course, is "locked and loaded." Something he didn't learn due to his bone spurs.

Now have some fun and google. "cocked and loaded movie" or "cocked and loaded film." Fun stuff.

I think he meant to say "half-cocked and loaded."

Despite writing complete gibberish I have to give him credit for not starting another unnecessary war.
