No, wait....that was the movie Animal House. Yesterday's big news was from the WHITE House.
Fear and panic in Tehran!
Kinda makes you wonder....well, me at least....if this was just another of President Donald Trump's knee jerk reactions to something he didn't like. I would hope that if he approved of putting someone "on notice" he would have thought it through carefully, discussed it with the Defense Dept, State Dept, the CIA (if they'll take his call), our allies (if we have any left), etc, and put together a realistic, tiered plan of action.
Then he should have sent word via diplomatic channels to the Iranians, explaining that we expect them to abide by all the terms of our agreement, no exceptions, and lay out what will happen if they don't. But that doesn't appear to be what happened. The Iranians light off a missile one day, and Trump sent Flynn in front of a hot mic the next to threaten them.
I'm no diplomat or military guy, but I have to wonder if either State or Defense can put together a detailed plan of action like that in just one day? I agree that we need to call the Iranian's hand on this treaty violation, but there's a right way and a wrong way to do it. He can still pursue his agenda without leaving a trail of wreckage behind.
America's new Fire Chief...er...Secretary of State (as of last night) Rex Tillerson, has his hands full delivering flowers to many of our decades-long allies who his Arsonist-In-Chief boss has already torched in just his first two weeks in office. IMO the Republican Party needs to assign a minder to make sure President Trump takes his daily meds.
And how about those buffoons in Congress?
2016....Senate Democrats are outraged....OUTRAGED!....when Republicans won't vote and confirm President Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court. "Republicans are despicable scum!"
2017....Senate Republicans are outraged....OUTRAGED!....when Democrats threaten to sabotage President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court. "Democrats are despicable scum!"
How can they, Democrats and Republicans alike, look us in the eye and lie like they do? If we look up, that thing we're seeing is the underside of the bus both parties have thrown us under.
LATE EDIT: Could "On Notice" be Prez Trump's green light code for the Israeli's to go get 'em? Heehee....hold my beer!
