Title: #WWIII Now Trending as Trump Fulfills Neocon Wet Dream of Provoking War with Iran

Late Thursday night, without any congressional authorization, president Donald Trump ordered and carried out the assassination of one of the most powerful people in Iran, knowingly setting off what could amount to a new world war. Qassim Suleimani, the leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, was killing in Iraq “to protect U.S. personnel abroad,” according to the Pentagon. In reality, however, this move just hurled the United States and its citizens into perpetual danger and inevitable chaos and debt.

The saber rattling began last week when the US accused Iran of killing an American contractor. “Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many,” Trump tweeted. “We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!”

The American contractor, to whom Trump is referring was reportedly killed during an alleged attack on an Iraqi military base. After the alleged attack, Trump immediately blamed Iran via the Iraqi Shi’a militia. US officials offered zero proof that Ketaib Hezbollah was behind the alleged attack, but did say the group has links to Iran’s Quds Forces. Iran immediately denied any involvement and called the US response a “clear example of terrorism.”

Nevertheless, Trump violated the constitution and unilaterally carried out an act of war against Iran, and assassinated the second most powerful person in the country.

Following the assassination of Suleimani, Iran’s National Security Council called an emergency meeting in which they vowed vigorous revenge against America for his death. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif decried the attack, saying it was a “foolish escalation” and that the “US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism.”

Indeed.

To those foolish enough to be supporting such idiotic war games, consider the fact that Iran is not Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or Libya. Iran’s military is ranked as the 14th most powerful armed forces in the world by Global Firepower’s 2019 Military Strength Ranking. A war with them would not resemble that of a war with Iraq. Instead, Americans would see large scale cyber attacks on our infrastructure, clandestine operations carried out inside the United States, and potential nuclear fallout. Hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties are likely.

The implications of such a war are grave and it appears that many people, at least in the Twitterverse, know this. After the attack, multiple iterations of ‘World War III’ began trending on Twitter.

This is the current state of America in 2020, war is a distant thought, which takes place elsewhere and can be reduced to a hashtag. Despite the horrific consequences of such a conflict with Iran, neocons have been salivating over the idea for decades and no MAGA folks — who previously did not support the war — are also salivating. In fact, neocons predicted this very instance. In May of 2018, then National Security Adviser, John Bolton predicted that by the end of 2019, the US will be at war with Iran. He was only a few days off.

To those paying attention over the years, Trump’s desire to intervene in Iran, and his subsequent support in the media should come as no surprise as it has been the plan since Bill Clinton was in office and was documented in the neoconservative PNAC report. This was even admitted by General Wesley Clark, former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, that the U.S. planned on going to war with Iran, according to a 2001 memo from the U.S. Secretary of Defense.

“This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years,” Clark said. “Starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off with Iran.”

Also, in November, it was reported that in the  in the south-western province of Khuzestan in Iran, officials announced that they discovered an area containing over 53 billion barrels of oil. While this attack may not be specifically over oil, unlike government, the market doesn’t lie. On Friday, as the DOW tanked with war looming, oil prices spiked.

What’s more, the decision to wage war in Iran has received bipartisan support in Washington. Last month, Democrats and Republicans came together to strip a provision from the NDAA that called for no authorized war with Iran.

Remember all these facts over the next few months as the US war machine spins its web of lies to keep you distracted while sending off the poor and patriotic to be used as cannon fodder in a war of aggression. Despite hot air being blown into microphones behind teleprompters read by politicians who will never put themselves in any danger, these wars will be carried out by troops who the government treats like pawns on a chessboard. As these troops come home limbless and in boxes and innocent brown children are blown apart by hellfire missiles, remember that none of this is for your “freedom” and all of it is for the benefit of special interests.

I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers.

Oh. I was under the impression he sent a Hellfire missile up a terrorist commander's barack.

Not much of a WW, but what do I know?

‘They Are Liars, And They Don’t Care About You’: Tucker Warns Of ‘Reckless And Incompetent’ Proponents Of War With Iran

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Yes, he should have filled a couple of C-141s with pallets of $100 bills and air dropped them.

Have you been sleeping?
Did you miss the embassy attack Iran carried out in Iraq?
Soleimani was in Iraq to carry out a major attack against US troops in the ME. Those plans went up in 'smoke.' The attack against Soleimani was pre- emptive.

Iran rules Syria and Iraq. It was essential to take him out. He is responsible for 17% of American troop deaths. He was involved in the Benghazi fiasco.

Should PDJT have done nothing, allowing more dead and injured troops? Again, Soleimani was there to carry out a major attack against our troops.

"Provoking war with Iran"? Seriously?

Iranian controlled militia have killed several Americans, and just attacked the US embassy. The US, in a surgical strike, took out both the Iranian general in command AND the Iraqi leader of the pro-Iranian militias in Iraq. And airstrikes took out 25 radicals in Iraq.

Seems like Iran is provoking us, and got a lot more than they bargained for.

If Iran wants war, then we'll give them war, and crush them.

I'm thinking a bunker buster through the roof of their grand mosque taking out their "Grand Ayatollah" might be just what the Devil ordered.

"Trump violated the Constitution..."

Allow provocateurs to continue getting stronger, while leaving them with the feeling they are unopposed. THAT is how you get into a war. Not just wandering in like Bushitters 1 and 2.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.
