Drumph and Iran.

Thoughts? Did ol' Donnie Drumph go for the oldest panacea in the failing popularity playbook and start beating the drums of war to distract from impeachment?

Surely the U.S. won't actually go to war against someone who can actually give them a military run for there money?

If Iran blockades the strait of hormuz and cuts of the oil supply, is that enough provocation to goad a populous still weary from the protracted shitshow in Iraq into another war with no real objective?

  • Trump is trying to divert attention from his impeachment. It's also a method used to try and shore up his base leading into the election later this year. Leaders very rarely get ousted if they're at war.

    But that being said. This move is already unpopular with the American public - even parts of his base - given Trump ran on a platform saying he'd bring all troops home. 

    • Talk about shoring up his  base. I just saw on the ABC a short clip of Trump on stage surrounded by around 15 people in a prayer circle.  They all with their hands on Trump or each other, heads down and praying.  The guy on the end was a preacher with a microphone leading the prayers.  

      Trump didn't, however, have his head down he was head up grinning from ear to ear.  Seriously you couldn't make this stuff up.

      Hillarious!!

        • Here we go.

          I watch all types of media including free to air and online. Trust me the media aren’t honest. They tell you what their masters want you to know - end of story.

          You only digest all the crap about trump from main stream media who have been proven that without a shadow of a doubt that they’ve been lying about trump and Russia now for 3 years. I don’t call that researching for yourself, I call that blindly believing what you’ve been told to like all good brain washed lefties do. You think the media tells the truth? They are the mouth pieces of today’s left.

          Even so called online lefty contributors like Tim Poole and Jimmy Dore are critical of the lefts obsession with Russia and are now calling it a hoax and was so from the very beginning.

          Do some research yourself and you may just realise that Trump was the victim of espionage and he was not involved in any so called collusion.

          The investigators of Trump were the ones behind the coup and it will all come out this year. You won’t hear it on the ABC or SBS but you can bet your two hairy ones he will be proven correct.

            Heard about this book Frank? It's worth a holiday read.

            • Yes watched a fair bit on this.

              Never read it though.

              I think the assertions that are made pretty much exaggerated. Or at least you can say that this sort of ability to gather voter information was available to both candidates, maybe Hillary was too arrogant to think she'd need it and Trump thought I can use every bit of help I can get. He was hungrier she was living off the Clinton name

              Trump won because Hillary was as corrupt as fuck and everyone knew it, except for the maybe the brainwashed idiots living in their major cities, and it showed with the electoral college results.

               

              • Especially in the battleground states like Pennsylvania, Ohio & Michigan & ultimately Florida. She just assumed she would win Florida with its huge Latino & Jewish populations, and to be fair she did better than Obama in Miami-Dade, but she seriously underestimated how the working class was abondoning the Democrats, in particular the pseudo elitists that populate the DNC.

                The Rust Belt & the Florida panhandle untimately won the election for Trump, and these were the very people she referred to as the basket of deplorables. 83 EC votes that won him the White House.

    • He doesn't have to divert attention from the impeachment proceedings, he'll never be removed from office.
