    Trump and neocons started War with Iran in order to win elections?

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/01/02/m...ets/index.html
    The commander of Iran's Quds Force and a senior official in Iraq's paramilitary forces have been killed by "shelling" targeting their vehicle at Baghdad International Airport, Iraqi state television reported.
    Qassem Suleimani, commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Quds Force unit, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of the Iran-backed Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), were among those killed in the attack early Friday, al-Iraqiya TV reported.

    I suppose this is one way to distract from Impeachment.

    A US contractor is killed in an Iranian supported Iraqi militia attack, and the US kills a very high ranking Iranian military officer?

    Is it too late for the 25th Amendment before shit gets real bad?

    Expect a new and larger and angrier crowd outside of our embassy again. Just when the crisis had passed. Oh well. I’m too old to be called up. Time for the younguns to get theirs.

    So Trump confirms it. I guess he really wants to win elections this time.

    It is unclear if this was:

    - an attempt to win an election
    - an attempt to distract from impeachment
    - they are simply fucking idiots

    There is a lot of evidence to suggest option 3.

    Well, we know Trump never does anything that isn't directed or otherwise approved by Putin and since none of those are mutually exclusive, I'd say all three.

    Fox News is saying this is pure victory, nothing like Obama who was paying off Iranians with nothing in return, and Trump showed incredible restraint.
