Trump Says Obama Will Start A War With Iran To Get Reelected
Business Insider ^ | November 29, 2011

Posted on 11/30/2011 8:57:54 AM PST by Strategy

Donald Trump doesn't simply believe that President Barack Obama was not born in this country - he thinks Obama will start a war to win reelection.

Trump posted this ridiculous and baseless tweet a few minutes ago:

In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran.

Not ridiculous or baseless.

The Marxist is capable of doing anything to win reelection.

Trump is a nut.

A couple weeks ago I saw him claim that we don’t know if Pakistan has nukes.

Yep, you got that right. The problem is that we may be thinking to small when it comes to that “anything”.

Well, loking at the choices for his opponent and the mess that the repub party is, I seriously doubt he feels threatened enough to think this is plausible.

Nah... Democrats will rattle a bunch of sabres and then next summer Iran will suddenly throw out some meaningless gesture and Obama will have another one of his big seminar meetings and give us a faux “peace in our time” momment. This will all be done with Iranian collusion - they’re not stupid. Of course they want Obama re-elected.

A perhaps-not-so-minor nit —

Technically, and legally, a State of War has existed - and still exists - between the United States and Iran since 1979, when the Ayatollah Khomeni declared war...

That declaration has never been rescinded or abrograted, as far as I know.....

Don’t buy it. I don’t believe Obama would ever take sides against any muslim jihadist country. To the contrary, he’s done every thing possible to support and empower them. Not to say he wouldn’t start a war with someone else for this reason - it just won’t be against “his people”.

I agree with Trump here. Trump is also right on China.

Pat Buchanan is even better on China and Pat Buchanan says that he would treat the illegal immigration into the U.S. as an invasion and repel it.

I think Obama the muslim is more inclined to have a war started with the Iranians on Israel and then jumping in against Israel.

Remember, If the winds turn ugly against Islam, he will side with them.

I think you totally underestimate the extent to which 0dumb0 will do ANYTHING to gratify his arrogant narcissistic quench for power & money on the taxpayers dime at all costs. He & his phat ass butt ass ugly chimpanzee wife michelle are raping & pillaging our country and another little war (or big one) would not bother this commie pig SOB in the least.

Clinton got his war in Bosnia to turn the nation's attention away from Monican Lewinsky, 0dumb0 ramped up Afghanistan and then participated in the illegal war in Libya. Any demoRAT war is always a good war as far as the media & peace protestors. It is only when a Repub is president that a war is bad and needs to be endlessly replayed & rehashed on the MSM news & peace protestors turned violent.

In fact 0dumb0 would welcome any pretense to become involved in another war so that he can claim to be interested in America's security. Nothing is too low or debased for this RAT bastard socialist commie pig to do, in order to retain his power, even at the risk of losing demoRAT control of the House & Senate, as long as he retains his power.

Plus another war will allow him the opportunity to continue to spend add'l billions & even trillions of dollars, supposedly to support the war effort. Unfortuantely the House GOP led by Boehner & Senate GOP by McConnell will allow 0dumb0 his unlimited checkbook, being the weenie wimps that they are.

And I do not think he was born in our country..Maybe one day we will find out..

Starting a war with Iran won’t help Obama, as the vote that will be based on having a “war leader” won’t go his way.

Sort of like the dog catcher starting a fire in order to protect his job from municipal cuts.

This applies to old thinking, to new times. The thinking that voters would rally to Obama if war breaks out is old thinking. If Obama starts another war he will lose the little support he has left.

Obama doesn't decide anything. He reads off a Teleprompter. That's his job. Period. If we go to war with Iran its because the anti-America Globalist Banksters that own Barry and the Republicrat\Dumbocan Party want it.

Oh, really? I hope you were being sarcastic, or are you one of those 99 percenters? If you are a member of the "Lucky Sperm Club" and inherited your wealth, that's one thing, but to build a profitable business and amass wealth takes intelligence and hard work. Of the rich people I know, none of them are stupid.

“Starting a war against Islamic country” may be technically correct however he has continued the Bush doctrine in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The war against Iran has already started. So far it is only covert. If we succesfully take out their nuclear capability quietly, without starting an allout war (as I think is the plan), then Obama will crow his success to boost his numbers. If we are not successful then our action will be ignored. I don’t think he is “enough of a Muslim” to deter him from killing Muzzies, it doesn’t deter the average terrorist bomber.

I’ve never seen anyone attack Obama nor call Obama out like Trump has.

Also Trump is right about how China is abusing the U.S. on trade etc.

Can you all imagine Trump in a debate with Obama and Trump calling Obama out on things like his birth certificate etc.?

At least we’d have some fun watching the debate as our country goes the way Europe is now collapsing.

Trump is on to something but instead of the Obozo’s reelection, maybe a NATO/US - Iran war will also involve our home land thus be used to enact martial law and suspend the election of 2012. This crop of criminals wants absolute control and anything is plausible. Like Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski stated; “it is easier to kill a million people than it is to try to control them.”

Iraq troops are leaving soon, disaster, Iran control and instability is next. Afghanistan troops withdrawal date has already been announced. Karzai regime will fall as soon as the troops are gone. Who do you think will take over?

As for killing Muzzies, you can count them on your abacus.
Mainly for propaganda purposes. 99% of Taliban leaders and
the Haqqani network are alive and well and protected in Pakistan.

Egypt election just yesterday had 40% votes for the Muslim brotherhood. Ditto will happen in Libya, Tunisia and Yemen. A form of Sharia will be in place in all those countries.
