New York Times: The Nightmare Stage of Trumpís Rule Is Here
New York Times ^ | 01/07/2020 | Michelle Goldberg

There are no more adults in the room.

After three harrowing years, we’ve reached the point many of us feared from the moment Donald Trump was elected. His decision to kill Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s 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 don’t 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. Iraq’s 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 Iran’s 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 administration’s 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 mullah’s butts is finally over. Their choice, not ours.

An Iranian General is in Iraq trying to coordinate an attack on the US Embassy.

That’s war.

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.

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.

NYT'S tried to warn Sulimani BEFORE he was taken out. How did they get that information?

Isn't there a word for this? -Begins with a "T" ends with "reason".

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
