Lol at least we can all (at least mostly) agree that when Kapernick opens his mouth it’s gonna be retarded. He def didn’t fail with his Iran remarks.

So far that's all it was.  No casualties.

More or less.

He's a former football player.  Not a geopolitical analyst.  His opinion means about as much as yours or mine.

For him to stay "relevant" he will continue to speak even more nonsense.  He got his workout, underwhelmed, so now he has to move on.

 

In terms of last night's attack (and I wonder when Iran's state run media will blame the US on the plane crash) there are two ways to go.
Quick, swift and decisive.

Or be patient....

 

 

As much as many of us would like to wipe some place off the face of the earth, we need to be smart about it.

Personally, I would wait. And wait. And wait. I would use some Psychological Operations efforts to make them believe it is imminent, 'fake' a few spin ups, and keep them on edge and on their toes. While doing so we can read how their responses, and how the scramble their defense forces and where they position their ballistic missile batteries.


Then, when the time is right and they believe it is just another ruse we should strike.

Wonder where they got the money to pay for those?

You guys do realize that Kapernick is a spokesperson for Nike?  He is being told to say what he says

Start another thread about Kaepernick?  It's already been established he is a loser. Who gives a fuck what that loser thinks?

Anyway, the more that comes out about Iran's "strike," the more it looks like they are trying to save face.  Despite the MSM getting a hard on for WWII to start, so they can trash orange man, it seems like there are no casualties and no real significant damages.

If Ben Shapiro even sees that this is a good idea, it should be obvious to everyone.

While i dont disagree with this course of action I would still rattle their cages a bit about a response.

 

If this is indeed what President Trump does then this is the narrative I see playing out:

From Democrats:  Our troops and assets get bombed and he does nothing.  Weak.  If he does do something, it was either too much or not enough.

 

and if this was President Obama in office doing the exact same thing then just change the above to say "From republicans"

Yeah. No need for this to escalate anymore. Apparently we knew they were going to launch the strike beforehand.

"... no *American casualties ..."

I thought I heard that there were Iraqi casualties, though I don't recall hearing it was that many.

Still, blowback has hurt us plenty of times before.

Democrats are going to shit on Trump no matter what he does, so it really shouldn't be taken into account when evaluating his course of action.

I don't see any reason to rattle their cages further, though.

So Trump is coming on TV to speak about this.  

My guess is he will draw his read line and then smack them with sanctions.

I hope not.  I've been told by a few people over there that it would be best if things just died down entirely.  They've all said basically the same thing: that it's best for both us and Iran if it goes away now.

We get shenanigans because we spend trillions.
