  1. Article 1 Section 8 :  The Congress shall have Power To  Declare War. 

    The War Powers Act exists solely to hold the President accountable to Congress.

  2. 🇬🇧 Yes Donny. 62 Canadians and 70 Iranians plus other Europeans. Trump didn’t pull the trigger on this but he loaded the gun.

  3. Trump and his radical, extremist Yeehawdists have got to go.

    No, Joe…not completely on the Iranians….TRUMP STARTED THIS. I am ashamed that you would weasel your country out of any responsibility for those deaths.

    • @Dave Roberts Civilian plane in Iranian air space shot down roughly two minutes after takeoff from Iranian civilian airport by Russian built missile operated by Iranian crew is not Trump’s fault. It is 100 percent Iran’s fault.

    • He may have been a bad guy, but he was an official of a sovereign nation. Assassinating him was a war crime and just made our troops and our Citizens in the region more unsafe than before

    • Saddest News … Correct

    • I agree, its all on low IQ trump. This is Joe, he is a isreal lover Iran hater so i already knew he would put the blame on Iran for the shoot down of the 737.

    • @Saddest News With all due respect to your legal expertise, it is the International Criminal Court and not Saddest News who adjudicates what constitutes a war crime. And, to my knowledge no such adjudication has been made.

      Under United Nations law, a nation may attack in self-defense. U.N. Article 51.

      Was self-defense justified? The known facts suggest Soleimani was not in Iraq to vacation but to further coordinate Iranian militia attacks on US interests including the US embassy. I guess it is possible he was there simply to enjoy some Iraq style BBQ, but I believe it unlikely.

      And not sure how you reached conclusion Citizens of the region are more unsafe than before. Do you think doing nothing would convince Iran to stop its encroachment into Iraq? stop its nuke program? renounce its intent to destroy Sunnis, Western allies, and America?

  5. Congress and Presidents =1 name i recall…….PIMPS.

  6. Trump makes US less safe and ‘reckless’ leadership. Iran got Trump where they want. Go Ayatollah !

  7. The Orange Blob needs to be removed from office PERIOD!

      @jeff mcgowan it’s always buh buh Hillary, buh buh Obama. You trolls always prove the real people who’s not drunk off of that illegitimate president right…

      jeff mcgowan. If you teacher was to read the wording of your mindlessly asinine comment, they would be the one crying. 🤣 put down the crack and these ignorant comments will slowly subside.

  8. Trump likes to take any clear picture, chop it up and scatter it, then tell people to admire it’s new clarity!

      Political word salad!

    • This is so correct! He thinks we all have the same quality of his brain a brain-dead biological chicken disaster. It is never his fault! and for McConnell and the so-called elected Republicans to not even be an impartial juror, they need to go, they are not lawful! They need to be fired.

    • Soleimani is Dead!

  9. The deaths of those in the aircraft is not 100% on the Iranians, they and the 40 something mourners stampeded, would still be alive if Trump hadn’t ordered the assassination of Soleimani, don’t forget the others that died in that assassination, there were drivers and others too.

  10. Everything Trump* does is RECKLESS!!

    Donald Chump got that plane shot down. End of subject!!!

    • djondjon This comment is stupid because there is no link here. correlation is not causation.

      I put that because Iran has a history of shooting down airliners. You people that suffer from TDS think history with Iran started in 2016.

      Stop being dumb.

    • djondjon it’s like y’all started watching in season 20 and think you know the plot of the story.

    • djondjon Iran really downed its own airliner within its own airspace because of Trump. Got it. The 40 that died in the stampede at Soleimani’s funeral must also be Trump’s fault. Hate Trump so much that you abandon logic.

    • @Howard Ross
      I am quite well aware that there is a long (nearly century long) history of tensions between the two countries. However, I disagree on your assessment of the current situation.

      I do agree, though, your comment was stupid (and irrelevant) to the causation of the very _recent_ incidents being discussed in this thread. Stop being dumb, Howard. 😉

      BTW, since you seem to like “whatabout”s, I seem to remember 290 lives lost on Iran Air flight 655 on July 3, 1988 …

    • Jim McLoughlin | January 11, 2020 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      @Howard Ross Nothing to do with logic but just applying some existential thinking. Goes back to imminent reasons for killing Sulemani.

  12. Trump needs to be held accountable for at lease most of what he has done.

    As long as Trump voters think that Donny will get rid of the “brown people” then they don’t care how dishonest he otherwise is.

  14. He committed a crime and if someone dies in the act of crime in America you go to jail for 2-degree murder.

    who started this problem is responsible for all these deaths period

    There goes Joe showing he’s still a republicon. He’s been fooling us all along. Joe, you are dismissed! #RepubliconsYouAreFired

    If this was the last president they would’ve hung him for treason before this happened

  18. SOMEONE ON TV CALLED HIM “TANG” because he looks LIKE THAT ORANGE JUICE 🥤 😂😂😂I think she’s right THIS ORANGUTANG IS SICC 🤬🤬

  19. The Iranians would not have fired missiles if Soleimani was not killed. So, yes, I put that on Trump.

  20. Fox news should be disbanded like they did the Trump charity
