Wonder if its the effects of an STD?

White House Memo Justifying Suleimani Strike Cites No Imminent Threat

A new report sent to Congress about the drone strike that killed Iran’s top general contradicted the original justification the administration provided.

In a legally mandated, two-page unclassified memo to lawmakers, the White House asserted that the strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani was “in response to an escalating series of attacks in preceding months” by Iran and Iran-backed militias.

“The purposes of this action were to protect United States personnel, to deter Iran from conducting or supporting further attacks against United States forces and interests, to degrade Iran’s and Quds Force-backed militias’s ability to conduct attacks, and to end Iran’s strategic escalation of attacks,” said the report, which was transmitted on Friday to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The document confirmed what lawmakers had privately suspected as the Trump administration has offered a shifting set of justifications for the strike against General Suleimani in Baghdad — taken with no congressional consultation — which brought the United States and Iran to the brink of war.

Its all about Orangutanman's image.

Trump pushed CIA to find, kill Osama bin Laden's son over higher priority targets

When the CIA gave Trump a list of major terror leaders to kill, he said he'd never heard of them. Instead he focused on a target with a famous name.

When intelligence officials briefed President Donald Trump on the most worrisome terrorist threats during the first two years of his tenure, they regularly mentioned the names of the senior terror figures the CIA was working hardest to find and kill, including the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri.

Trump would ultimately greenlight successful strikes on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Yemeni al Qaeda chief Qasim al-Rimi — perhaps the most significant names on the CIA list of potential U.S. targets.


But he was more interested in a young and less influential figure much farther down the list, according to two people familiar with the briefings, because he recognized the name.

"He would say, 'I've never heard of any of these people. What about Hamza bin Laden?'" one former official said.

"That was the only name he knew," a Pentagon official added.

That's despicable.

Do you have an opinion on Trumps dispicable actions, ..........haven't seen you condemn that, just offer whataboutism.
There was nothing despicable about the Obama administration's practice of using the holding units to keep unaccompanied children who were in transit. It's not great, but it doesn't even remotely compare to what the Trump admin did.


The family separation policy was a deliberately cruel systemic abuse aimed at deterring border crossings. Obama's admin was mainly trying to transition children who turned up without parents, in temporary cages. I don't like it but I don't consider it despicable. What's despicable is ramping up the numbers of children kept in cages by several multiples, totally overstretching the US's housing facilities, and separating small children from their parents without any plan for how to reunite them - leading to permanent psychological damage, quite a lot of children still not reunited with their families, and reports of horrific abuse and deaths in badly equipped facilities.

1. Many (including scientists) think that man-made global warming isn't real, or effects the planet minimally, so your first point null.
An estimated 97% of climate scientists agree that global temperatures are rising, and that human activity is a significant contributing factor:

2. So you think that China should be allowed to get away with it's raping of the US economy. Trump has only tried to make things fair again, like for instance renegotiating NAFTA.
America isn't winning in Trump's trade war with China. American exports to China were at $107 billion in 2019. In 2017, the year before the trade war started, they were at $130 billion. The last time that American exports to China were that low, was in 2011. So all that Trump has done so far is to take American exports to China back to 2011 levels:

Trump's trade war has harmed many countries, not just America. Growth in global trade dropped to 1% in 2019, down from 6% in 2017, the year before the trade war started:

3. "Systematically corrupting US government institutions". Wow, that's quite the claim, please explain how he is doing this.
He has abused his office for personal political gain and has acted in contempt of congress. Senate has now set a precedent that this behaviour is acceptable; the Office of the President of the United States has been corrupted. One sees worrying signs of similar behaviour in other branches of government, for example, when a group of Republican congressmen lead by Matt Gaetz stormed a secure SCIF to disrupt impeachment hearings last year, or that Mitch McConnell openly coordinated the impeachment trial with the White House, with Senate thereby not executing their constitutional duties as an independent branch of government. Trump is openly interfering in Department of Justice business. I can carry on.

:giggle:#thanksobama Uncle Joe would be so proud of you, defending it to the end
Obama:

Trump:

In his first three years Obama deported 1.18 million people but as of November last year trump has deported little under 800,000, according to the Washington Post.

In 2012 the Obama administration deported 409,849, while the Trump administration has yet to deport more than 260,000 people in a year.

Man, you lot are pathetic. The reason more children were held in cages (that Obama built) under Trump is because MORE CHILDREN WERE CROSSING THE BORDER! Get it? It's all about numbers, the more children that are crossing the border into America, the more will end up in cages. It's not that hard to understand unless you have TDS.

Secondly, saying that Obama didn't separate families is just plain wrong. You either follow the mainstream media which no doubt just lies about the topic or you are ignorant.

In your eyes Obama was a saint who could do no wrong. Wrong! He was as narcissistic as any President that came before or after him.

Get your facts straight before hating on Trump for things that Obama implemented himself.

CNN analyst said Obama's child separation policy was done 'for their protection', slams policy under Trump

Notes white knighting while white knighting. Big Brain Time. Have you any self awareness?

:ROFL:
Everything in this response is perfect. Each phrase (sadly only one of them is a full sentence, the rest need some work) are beautiful in their own way.

You will not understand the irony, @Gnarls, but I do.

I do.
