    Maybe send the progressives first. Then the freedom crates.

    Teddy Roosevelt was the first American to win a Nobel Prize and no one loved war more than him.

    I think there's likely some fishing for leaks involved.
    I think a lot of people think Trump is a blow hard to the bone, but with the military & strategy I don't think that's the case.

    Taking a step back, I'm seeing the usual suspects antagonizing in regards to Iran, with Iran taking out tankers, a drone, being involved in a "state attack".
    I see many of the same folks trying to impeach the President, holding out, with threats of more to come.

    Now I see a long-awaited direct Iranian conflict occurring.

    I think this is another instance where we won't know wth truly happened until 15 years later.
    And most will take hardline stances one way or the other.
    One thing we can probably all agree on, this sucks.

    Agreed. But that's what happened here. Win-win for all.
