    No doubt Bolton could fire some lethal scuds.

    China. Need to wean ourselves off of oil. When the world no longer needs Mideast oil we can let the religofascists kill each other in peace.

    Bolton is known to carry false flags up his butt, ready to drop one at a moment's notice.

    We should severely sanction SA if they fail to respond. SA is a founding member of OPEC, an organization committed to restricting the world's oil supply in order to keep the price high. The hideous irony of using, "but the world's oil supply is at risk" is grade A bullshit. The history lesson for the US, is stop sending your sons & daughters to die so that greedy, self serving cowards can enrich themselves.

    you are a big fan of Iran aren't you? The mental gymnastics you have displayed in this thread are impressive, right down to claiming that NK doesn't have nukes because nobody saw them.

    I would like to point out that the nuclear deal with Iran did nothing to prevent Iran from developing missile or drone technology which was used in the attack on KSA.

    My opinion on this is when they shout "Death to America" or "Death to Israel", this is not a slogan. When they get the military might to do it, they will.

    I'm cool with doing nothing at this point, but if it goes in the shitter you need to be cool with $100/barrel oil.

    The US is a net export of oil, if worldwide supply is decreased the price will go up.

    I don't think the US should send boots in, if KSA needs tools we sell them the tools to smack Iran down, their leadership has been stirring the pot and killing our servicemen for years.

    Trump got out of a shit deal Obama took just so he could tout and say look at me. The sanctions back then were ruining Iran, Obama pussed out and paid them off to do it.

    Does anyone deny Iran is funding/arming for a fair amount of the terror attacks in the region?

    I am a big fan of facts. Not political misinformation.
    North Korea does not have nukes. Since you doubt that fact then prove where any radiation has been found and yes inspectors have been to the sites in the past. They are neither financially connected nor politically desirable enough to have nukes.
    Iran is a Trump and Republican target to further the "look how strong we are" and to pull the stunt GWB did. Nothing like a "we support the troops" thing to distract Americans attention. Even when it was a huge lie.

    Open your brain enough to either just say that the government would never deceive you or join many of us that fully know they will and I offer Vietnam and Iraq as proof positive. Instead of finding fault in my facts then maybe you should study history.

    It would be nice, it will take decades.

    We will be ahead of the game compared to many of the industrialized nations, however India/ China/Russia all have growing power demands. Oil is king for the next 30-40 years. (Barring cold fusion, or some other great tech advance).

    Well solar and geothermal can produce a lot of electricity. We virtually only use oil to move vehicles

    I just read this on every "fact" you claim supports your opinion.
    None of them are anything but opinions. Read them. Where does any of them say "we tracked them from Iran"? Did you not wonder why everyone was so quick, note Pompeo, to point a finger as fact when they had no facts? I call a setup until someone can provide more than guessing or opinions a fact or proof.

    I thought you just got done saying that you don’t support a “false flag” narrative. Weird. I’m going to go get my eyes checked.

    This is NOT a crazy take.
