Donald J. Trump continues to talk big while being small and pathetic. Tonight, after he tweeted over the weekend about targeting cultural locations of Iran and gave “notice” via Twitter, he spoke with the White House press pool. We all wish that the reality was just a bad nightmare we are all collectively having. But alas, we have him in the White House and his cult applauding his every move.
He warned Iraq that if we leave, they will pay and that he will impose sanctions. He literally justified war crimes against Iran. He told the pool:
They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people. And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.
We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build. Long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it.
If they do ask us to leave, if we don’t do it in a very friendly basis. We will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame.
Yet what does Trump butt kisser and boot licker Lindsey Graham focus on instead? He is going to change the Senate rules to eliminate Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the House from the impeachment process. That’s not something he can even do, but there it is.
In the meantime, Trump threatens Iraq and threatens Iran, and we have no idea what it was that he spoke with Putin about last week, we know nothing about the American contractor that was killed, and reports are emerging that Pompeo has been trying to get Trump to go after Soleimani for months. All this comes amid reports that an attack against the U.S. was never imminent. We have a nightmare in the Middle East with an impossibly corrupt and incompetent commander in chief here for the United States. We wish that it was but a nightmare.
