Yeah sure, the US military won’t commit war crimes on $hitler’s psychopathic orders, says the Pentagon that’s compulsively lied about absolutely anything and everything for over half a century.

In other news, we’ve always been at war with Eastasia.


Iranians are way better at killing Iranians than Trump is.

Friendly fire already dominating the casualty count in World War III™.


@ 3,

Those gawdamn liars at the New York Times will describe the impending breakout of WWIII as the Tr666p/GOP fascists generously offering us an “Alternative to Life,” since FSM forbid some lunatics might accuse them of having BI-ASS.


"To die for hair Furor is Life's geatest gift!"
(for THAT?!)


I had no idea that someone was filming my son's 8th grade basketball game this weekend. It's nice that they put it on the internet.


@ 5,

Dipshit, Jr., Fembot, and The Ugly One have all suddenly come down with cases of acute bone spurs, so as usual they’ll graciously offer up someone else’s children to lead the charge head first into the machine gun fire.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said, "We will follow the laws of armed conflict.”

From the same national security state that gave us the vile euphemism "enhanced interrogation".

lawful forsooth.


Please note: Only animals "stampede"... This says much of Iran's "culture."


@10 crowd stampedes occur in all cultures including your own. You are such an ugly person (like all racists) and a first class moron too.


Some enterprising hero needs to go around Tempe adding commas. It's "Penis, Man"!


So Kentucky is gonna start regulating their gun owners? You know, as in "a well-regulated militia". How did they suddenly get more progressive than Washington State? I hope Inslee and the Leg. are paying attention; we've clearly got some catching up to do!


I have in-laws in Ponce that my sister's family was visiting when the earthquake struck. They were scheduled to fly out of San Juan today. Apparently the airport is running on generator power, but flights seem to be arriving and departing more or less as scheduled. No AC in the airport though, which is, thankfully, more of a first world problem.

Meanwhile my in-laws report that they have not been able to go back into the house yet due to aftershocks. Everyone is very tired but safe. Unknown whether there was any major damage to their house. Last I heard, they were still getting tremors.


@14: Wow - hope they all make it out ok.


So far, so good in the aftermath of the Soleimani assassination. And we have the most powerful military on earth just waiting to follow up if necessary. Sure we had our asses handed to us in Vietnam, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, but don’t forget how we showed ‘em in Kuwait! And oh yeah, Grenada!! Plus, look at all the great things that have already happened as a result of the Soleimani assassination: the fight against ISIS, stopped; U.S. influence and indeed its very presence in Iraq: completely undercut; the restive population in Iran agitating in the streets against its hard-liners: now in the streets unified against the U.S.; Iran’s nuclear program: now full-bore ahead; U.S. allies: (further) alienated. And so much more goodness to come! Like more U.S. troops in the Middle East! If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be now - we are in bed with the Saudis. They’re the best! This is all gonna work out so great!


Penis Man vs Florida Man.

Who will win?


16: Don't worry, our very smart boy Trump has it all covered.


Trump's playing some very intense 4d chess lol.


Florida Man


About those Aussie forest firefighters being shot at by hunters...yeah, that's not true, and the Yakima County Sheriff's Office has debunked that claim, - a fact I discovered in less than 60 seconds at the Google Machine, so...Natalie - you might want to look into that.


And I recognize that an understanding of the semantics won't support what I interpret your preferred narrative to be, but those people with guns shooting at wildlife in a fire closure area are known as poachers, not hunters.


More on trumpfy's Final Distraction:

"The [MQ-9 Reaper] strike may temporarily bolster the political fortunes of the two beleaguered architects of the assassination, Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but it is an act of imperial suicide by the United States. There can be no positive outcome.

It opens up the possibility of an Armageddon-type scenario relished by the lunatic fringes of the Christian right.  

  A war with Iran would see it use its Chinese-supplied anti-ship missiles, mines and coastal artillery to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, which is the corridor for 20% of the world’s oil supply. Oil prices would double, perhaps triple, devastating the global economy. 

The retaliatory strikes by Iran on Israel, as well as on American military installations in Iraq, would leave hundreds, maybe thousands, of dead. 

The Shiites in the region, from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, would see an attack on Iran as a religious war against Shiism. The 2 million Shiites in Saudi Arabia, concentrated in the oil-rich Eastern province, the Shiite majority in Iraq and the Shiite communities in Bahrain, Pakistan and Turkey would turn in fury on us and our dwindling allies. 

There would be an increase in terrorist attacks, including on American soil, and widespread sabotage of oil production in the Persian Gulf. Hezbollah in southern Lebanon would renew attacks on northern Israel." --Chris Hedges, in Truthdig

Hedges paints a pretty picture, doesn't he?And yet, a third of US agree with Prez...  

For those not Heavily invested in War Dept. biz, does it all boil down to a soul-deep longing for ... something, and finding it, hopefully (horrifically), thru missiles, big fucking cannons, and rivers and Oceans of Other People's (our Own, too) blood?

Invading Iraq was the Biggest Fucking Blunder in America's fucking History.

And trumpfy's gonna try and top that.


Hedges' last paragraph: "The United States, like Israel, has become a pariah that shreds, violates or absents itself from international law. We launch preemptive wars, which under international law is defined as a 'crime of aggression,' based on fabricated evidence.

We, as citizens, must hold our government accountable for these crimes. If we do not, we will be complicit in the codification of a new world order, one that would have terrifying consequences.

It would be a world without treaties, statutes and laws. It would be a world where any nation, from a rogue nuclear state to a great imperial power, would be able to invoke its domestic laws to annul its obligations to others.

Such a new order would undo five decades of international cooperation—largely put in place by the United States—and thrust us into a Hobbesian nightmare. Diplomacy, broad cooperation, treaties and law, all the mechanisms designed to civilize the global community, would be replaced by savagery."

We seem to be at a Crossroads.


So the protests over the funeral were more deadly than the attack that killed Suleimani?


@26 Irony is never a stranger to war.

More people will killed in drunk driving accidents in 2001 than on 9/11. In fact Americans murdered 8,890 other Americans with a gun in 2001.

And in order to "save" the good people of Iraq we killed over 400,000 of them and utterly crippled their nation gifting them with 50-70% unemployment for almost a decade.

But I guess thousands of freaked out Iranians in a deadly crush at a funeral makes it totally cool to provoke yet another useless war to distract America from a corrupt president.

PS. Iranian missiles just hit American airbases in Ira. So. Here we go again. Thanks warmongers.


Hey, where's Theo to tell us about how Iran isn't going to do anything?

We're at war now. Big deal, right?


@28 He’s busy screaming about the decadence of Hollywood while jerking off on his Japanese body pillow and watching ScarJo in Avengers for the fiftieth time.


@25 -- Or, maybe Iran can bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Isreal
and Isreal can Nuke them back and Russia and China can bomb Isreal
and India and Pakistan can Nuke each other and everybody can invade
everbody else and We can (finally!) invade Canada (SOCIALISM!!!) and
we'll all (Finally) be at Peace 'cause we're all fucking Dead. What will
we have to worry about then, I wonder....

Please wait...
