2. oh... the process exists........

the problem is once they go through the process, the persons they report to will be more interested in asking Iraq for dirt on Bernie Sanders then actually prepping the country for any kind of Iranian response.

5. All this for a GODDAMNED sit-in at the 100 BILLION dollar Embassy in Baghdad

 

And some screwy, quaint, out of date notion that an embassy is the sovereign soil of its country.

President Carter put an end to that sillyness and avoided an all out war.

Orangeman is going to get us all blown up.

21. Yes sit-in

 

It's another word for a protest.
No one group owns it.

37 Arrested In Vietnam Sit-In
By Stephen E. Cotton, (Special to the Summer News)
August 9, 1965

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8 -- About 37 demonstrators were arrested here this morning after an all-night sit-in front of the White House to protest American policy in Vietnam.

Policeman who had said that "they can stay here as long as they want," when the demonstrators blocked the Northwest gate Friday, changed their minds after the protesters spread out and blocked all seven entrances to the White House.

Most Released

About half of those arrested were charged with blocking the entrance to a public building and half with failing to move when ordered to by a police officer. Police said most were released later although "a couple" were still being hold.

25. Set-up?

Or does anyone have a credible explanation as to why what is reputedly the most fortified embassy in the world is allowed to be stormed by thugs and damaged to the extent shown in the above photos?
Nothing - absolutely nothing - about this entire shitshow portrays us (or the U.S.) as some kind of innocent victims of the "evil" Iranians. This was a provocation by a witless idiot on a goddamn golf course - and now many truly innocent lives will end because of it.

35. I think you are confused. Unclear on the concept. I don't think this means what you think it means.

The point of a sit-in is that it is PEACEFUL.

If Dr King's protestors had done that, they would have been slaughtered, and would have gone down in history as violent insurrectionists.

Welcome to DU.

7. Those who know what could be about to unfold here,

"professional" students of history and conflict and Middle East ambitions, people who have worked in counter-intel and national security SHOULD be terrified. Her words sum it all up perfectly.

And this - if Malcolm Nance is sounding the alarm bells, a lot of people - including me - are going to be losing sleep. LOTS of it.

Indeed . . . GOD HELP US.

11. Another tweet, Marine operation in Baghdad. Khazali

is apparently the leader of a pro-Iranian Iraqi militia umbrella group involved in the attack on the embassy.

Talking heads are saying Soleimani was a bad man, but not saying killing him was a good idea at all.

26. If we grow terrified, we're giving Trump too much control over our lives.

Fear makes us passive, it weakens us, and it will prevent us from removing this manipulative bastard from office.

Let your natural aversion to authoritarianism motivate you and strengthen you instead.

I fear the world will tilt as tribes, not complex governmental systems, simply hurl bigger and bigger bombs at one another.

I have never wished more that there was somewhere else to go.
