    Gotta love the news source LCT, which is to say Google, that the Nicaraguan gov'mint, which is to say the Ortega family, chose to join the global media shitstorm over droning Soleimani: the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, Providing Shia News (ABNA24.com).

    There is little doubt the Irani general was a bad dude, but one wonders if this was a "wag the dog" moment. To wit, as Reuters reminds us:
    Clinton ordered four days of bombing on Iraq in 1998 as he was facing an impeachment vote in the House. Those airstrikes delayed the vote, but did not prevent it.

    Well....
    1. Nobody on this planet cares what the Ortega's say.
    2. Why wag the dog when there is no impeachment yet? Nor any conviction in sight.
    3. Since Iraq just voted to kick us out, we should leave.....that is what Trump wants anyway. Let those dumb f**cks kill each other (but not us) over which brand of religion tastes best.
    IMHO.....

    Amen, Brother
    You're preaching to the choir here.


    Iran has made SO many enemies in the last few years,,
    when Trump is re-elected, more options will be on the table.

    Leave Iraq, I agree,, it's Shia, as is Iran, all a bunch of goat fu#$ers.
    They are never going anywhere. Thanks to Trump, we're energy independent, that doesn't mean we won't pay through the nose for gas when oil price spikes, just that it will be available.
    Anyone who remembers 1973,, also remembers lining up for gas.
    NOT the American way.

    The Sunnis are a better class of Muslim,, upper end,, prefer camels.

    I was just having a conversation with a Nicaraguan friend, about Nicaragua's difficult position re Iran.
    40% of Nicaragua's export goes to the US,, another big chunk to the Euro Union. Institutional memories are long,, some US government people still think that the Sandis are commies, and they haven't forgotten Iran's jungle warfare training center in the RAAN.

    Daniel may still get the "Local Economy" he talked about.

    What am I going to do ??
    That means no more donuts and peanut butter from PriceSmart.

    Sounds simple enough. Let's watch it for the next 5 years and learn.

    Weren't all the 9/11 terrorist Sunni? (I forgot, we trained 'em. And let their leaders fly out during the no-fly period after 9/11.) And all Al Qaeda who swore a fatwa to kill any & all Americans, all Sunni? (Osama was the CIA's go-to guy against the Ruskis.)

    News to me. I remember us selling arms to Iran on the sly to bankroll the Contras. And I visited Comayagua where GIs were trained before being deployed to Iraq.

    I need to join a choir, one that sings the "99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beers, ..." anthem, while the preacher explains how simple the dogma really is.

    My middle east peace plan
    1) dump Israel
    2) declare peace on Syria and ask the Ruskies to help rebuild it
    3) Maintain neutrality on the shia-sunni war. I love "neutrality", it really means "screw them all".
    4) tit-for tat on isis and iran terrorism. The trumpster's 1:52 ratio sounds great to me.
    5) refer back to #1.

    Oh, by the bye, it was Steve Bannon who raised the question, "Wag the dog?" on Bannon's War Room: Impeachment, episode 98. He's an extremely effective debater because he can consider both sides of an argument.

    Speaking of master debaters......remember William F Buckley? The guy could not be beat. Sarcasm at its finest.

    PS..Don't watch, just read.

    Here’s a classic:
    In 1965 Buckley debated James Baldwin at the University of Cambridge on the question:
    ‘Has the American Dream been achieved at the expense of the American Negro?’
    You judge who won.
