    Nothing works for spanky LIE maker.

  2. No reason for the United States to enable Saudi Arabia’s sectarian jihad against Iran, in Yemen or anywhere else.

    • @thiskidkatits Yep that’s almost as good as cadet bonespurs admitting that tried to coerce dirt on Joe to shape the upcoming election.

    • @Jay – last I looked, it was iranian proxies attacking KSA. Not that facts should take priority over your feelings. Just saying.

    • @bandeye khoda from the way I understand it, if Saudi’s in imminent danger, then it’s of their own doing. Maybe if they were made to understand that they alone are responsible for their security then they’d make better choices, and give themselves a moment of pause before acting aggressively towards their neighbors.

      I have family that might very well be called into any conflict, and I can assure you that most military personnel do not want this, but they will follow the orders of fools because that’s what their job is. It’s all FUBAR imo, and we had a path to remain at peace before the brainless wonder Trump decided to pull America out of the anti-nuclear deal.

    • @bandeye khoda oh, and feel free to write as much as you want. 19 years of marriage has taught me that communication’s a much better thing than the alternatives.🍺

    • @Cobra strike And I’ll be called since I’m trained and have served for 2 years before and I assure you that I wish not to face your family members in any unfriendly capacity. the point I’m trying to make is that, Saudis have been led to this cave by USA and now USA bound to help them get out; I would suggest diplomatically but seems like their understanding of diplomacy differs greatly from our people’s understanding

    I don’t see this as an act of WAR who ever sent War to the Saudis.
    I don’t see our role in the world as WAR Makers because of the Saudis interest.
    I don’t see our Boys & Girls lives on the line for OIL when it’s causing massive damage to the Earth.
    and I don’t see how using colonial type capitalism to funnel all that is good to the 1% doing me good.

    • That was the agreement between US and Saudis, that in return for only accepting American dollar for oil, the US would protect Saudi against all threats. This would allow the US to print money at will, and the American petro dollar was born.

    • Marvin … I notice that you did not mention that the US is doing this so Iran doesn’t get the Nuclear Bomb, you left that part out.

    • Random CAT Hey smart guy-it’s they’re not there. You are truly brilliant. Sarcasm font needed.

  4. Very interesting, insightful words. Thanks.

  5. The best thing is not to go to war with Iran. Also lets pull out American troops from the middle east. No point being there for the average American. Lets get our young men home.

    • goodvibration
      Then you should not have supported ISIS in the first place!😂😂😂

    • @Valkonnen
      IKR, “Oil wars are good and easy to win” 🙄
      In actual fact, Rouhani knows damn well Congress is not going to approve any war with Iran, especially during an election year. They’ll be falling all over themselves to prove their anti-ship missiles work.

    • @i Love Cops
      Reference your post:
      _“No! The best thign IS to go to wrsaz with Irans and fish them for good!”_

    • Skyprince27: Hello Miss SKy Queens! You sadi you, yes I sed YOU had videso fo the VAPORIZERS now you, tes I sewd YOyu say you amd eit all up,. I will NERV, and i trule MEEN NEVER beleeieve anythning youm yes i se xyOU say nevers agained!!

  6. Rise of kingdoms anyone? Sun Tzu!!!

  7. Here’s an idea. Convince Rouhani to meet with Trump, make sure nothing happens, then put the JCPOA to Trump to sign but with his name on it. He’ll think he’s the greatest deal-maker in the world, and Obama’s deal will remain intact, and most importantly, war will have been avoided.

    Sun Tzu and his policies are still used today.

  9. Houthis bombed capital of S Arabia 2 weeks before the oil fields.They did it not Iran.
    More atacks to follow on Scabia.
    Keep the vine bottle close to celebrate when they do it.

    • Good for them, it’s about time the Saudis suffered a little of the pain they’ve been so keen to inflict on others.

    • The US don’t really care. They’ve been trying to start a war with Iran for a while now, making false allegations against them, so they will run right into this war with the Saudis who murder US journalists for fun.

  10. It is not about Iran getting back to the negotiation table. It is the US who left the deal. Very untrustworthy. US are a bunch of reckless warmongers

    • And the US has been pushing for war with Iran since breaking the deal. Much of what the US has claimed Iran is guilty of, Iran have denied and in some cases, had back up, like what the crew of the Japanese tanker said vs what the US was claiming.

    • @Wallace Wallaby wrong US has been after iran since 1953

  11. Except one thing Iran didn’t do the attack Yemeni rebels did, fake news.

  12. Iran had nothing to do with the attacks on Saudi. Why spread lies? The attacks were by the houthis in Yemen.

    • J Wil go to war love the country go to war love the country go to war love the country go to war love the country go to war love the country go to war love the country go to war love the country

    • They cant even grow crops, let alone send a missle 1000’s of miles to hit with prescision lol

    • @Basil S
      US sell SA the weapons,
      Iran sell them to houthi to defend themselves,
      Saudi kill the civilians
      Houthies damages a refinery
      So what is the problem?

    • @Amirhadi s they are not civilian Houthis they are soldiers fighting the Yemeni government and the Sunni tribes in the south. Millions of people fled from the Houthis from 2011- present time. Iran gives the Houthis weapons to do so. They arent “Defending Yemen”. Also the Houthis didnt launch a presicion missle 1000’s of miles, they cant even grow crops

    • Same principal as the non existent WMD in Iraq

    Long live the revolutionary government of Iran ✌️🇮🇷

    The Houthis took responsibility for the drone attack. No evidence that Iran was behind it

  15. So Many dislikes trump fans doing good job

  16. more lies from the deep state news network

  17. The world protesting: “We want action on climate change!”
    US Government: “War with Iran it is!”

    • Lisa R : We should have, and could have, moved into the Hydrogen Age, by now. But, conflicts and fossil fuels are keeping a powerful minority rich. So, they deliberately hold back the tide of progress, because we let them run everything, from behind the scenes. Even presidents seems impotent in the face of that kind of power, so it really is up to mass movements, or nothing will change.
      Might I suggest that you ride a horse into town? Buy a couple, if you don’t already have them? And, if it’s a long way, you could strap them to a wagon and, if it’s a long, long way, make it a camping trip? Could be fun? Just a thought

    • MITCHELL WIGGS Get off the fake climate change garbage!

    • @Lisa R If the entire US shut down any and all things that get power or are created by the byproducts of the fossil fuel industry, do you understand the minuteness of the effect on our environment will be have? the number of other countries who increase their production will quickly grow to meet the market for energy. if this was done globally, the cumulative effect on the environment is still one of futile results as the temperature is said to still be sure to continue rising. These factors must be compared against the loss of much of the modern life. im not talking about smartphones and internet. im talking about the ability to store food for later use like refrigeration, communication with others away from a actual land line and the loss of data transmission services globally for anything not deemed needed for survival. This type of website and the communication it offers… like your post and this response will cease and the interconnectivity the world has will also fade into one where isolation grows and tribalism is once again the best way to ensure the survival of the people you care about.

      yeah.. think about the technologies of our ancient past. the ones that we still cant explain the existence of… pyramids, a calendar that was more accurate than our modern one, astronomical knowledge, medical and more things that would require the technology invented in our lifetimes to do today were made before we were said to have exited our caves. maybe those ancient people did the same thing u would have us do now?

    • MITCHELL WIGGS It’s hot and sunny in FL.
