    I thought she was coming here tomorrow? And after I gave that Nigerian guy my bank account number, balance and signed whatever that form was he wanted me to sign? Well. Anyway, at least there is the money from his uncle that we are splitting!

    What are the Saudi's going to do? Are they going to attack Iran? Could they ban all Iranians from Mecca?

    I agree somewhat with what Tulsi Gabbard said. We shouldn't be the proxy army for Saudi. If they want to go to war with Iran, let them send their troops in.

    talk about 2 snakes in a basket. Interesting to see China going in headfirst while they abuse their muslim population at home. I suspect Iran is going to get what they can and then tell China to piss off, I don't see them kowtowing to the Chinese in the long term like most of the debt laden borrowers in third world countries do.

    Seems like KSA needs to buy themselves some proxies to blame and then launch a cruise missile strike on Iranian oil assets

    It’s easy to agree with Tulsi Gabbard on that point: Sure, the U.S. is not KSA’s proxy. The problem is no one said it was. No one suggested it was. She might as well have said, “Trump is not going bring back infant sacrifice! We do not bring children into this world to throw them into fires and satisfy the right wing’s neo-Canaanite agenda!” Yay! We’re all on board. How profound.

    However, her comparison of the military to prostitution whenever we’ve been tasked with acting in other countries’ interests shows, once again, her ignorance of the history of her supposed other profession. The U.S. has operated as part of a coalition in nearly every war it has prosecuted since 1917. In most of those cases, at least one other member nation’s interests outweighed ours. That didn’t make us South Korea’s “whore” in June 1950. Just a dumb, ill-considered comparison for someone who walks around touting a Command & General Staff College education.
