There are no more adults in the room.
After three harrowing years, weve reached the point many of us feared from the moment Donald Trump was elected. His decision to kill Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Irans second most important official, made at Mar-a-Lago with little discernible deliberation, has brought the United States to the brink of a devastating new conflict in the Middle East.
We dont yet know how Iran will retaliate, or whether all-out war will be averted. But already, NATO has suspended its mission training Iraqi forces to fight ISIS. Iraqs Parliament has voted to expel American troops a longtime Iranian objective. (On Monday, U.S. forces sent a letter saying they were withdrawing from Iraq in response, only to then claim that it was a draft released in error.)
On Sunday, Iran said it will no longer be bound by the remaining restrictions on its nuclear program in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the deal that Trump abandoned in 2018. Trump has been threatening to commit war crimes by destroying Irans cultural sites and tried to use Twitter to notify Congress of his intention to respond to any Iranian reprisals with military escalation.
The administration has said that the killing of Suleimani was justified by an imminent threat to American lives, but there is no reason to believe this. One skeptical American official told The New York Times that the new intelligence indicated nothing but a normal Monday in the Middle East, and Democrats briefed on it were unconvinced by the administrations case. The Washington Post reported that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who last year agreed with a Christian Broadcasting Network interviewer that God might have sent Trump to save Israel from the Iranian menace has been pushing for a hit on Suleimani

40 years of kissing the mullahs butts is finally over. Their choice, not ours.
An Iranian General is in Iraq trying to coordinate an attack on the US Embassy.
Holy Hyperbole Bat Man!!!
“The administration has said that the killing of Suleimani was justified by an imminent threat to American lives, but there is no reason to believe this.”.
Or any reason to believe you.
There are no decent words to describe The NewYork Sllimes article. Sickening at best. Anyone who reads that trash is to me an enemy combatant.
“New York Times: The Nightmare Stage of Trumps Rule Is Here”
Considering the source, I’m very, very pleased.
The only nightmare is that it is the end of their Deep State tyranny.Their whole world is about change.
Yeah if only Trump had been a good boy and just given Iran trillions of OUR money than maybe just maybe they would not want to kill us
Here’s hoping that if there is a pull out EVERYTHING is pulled out or physically DESTROYED including airbases.
I fear a setup. I’m envisioning the deep state trotting out witness saying we lured Suleimani to Iraq and whacked him in a wag the dog ploy to divert attention from impeachment.
Our nation on the brink of war and the NYT attacks the CIC this is what real treason looks like.
Shut the mother #### up Slimes.
I can’t Stand our domestic enemies anymore
Isn't there a word for this? -Begins with a "T" ends with "reason".
When it comes time, I wish to visit the New York Times.
don’t worry NTslimes. We got this. While you all sit around contemplating the date a pix of Solimani hits the cover of the rolling stone, complete with hippy beads and psychadelic background
