The New York Times is reporting that Trump was given multiple choices after one individual who worked for a private military contractor was killed and several were injured in Iraq. It was confirmed that an Iranian militia was responsible for this attack and the taking of the American embassy in Baghdad.
Responses labeled “moderate” to “far out” were presented to the orange man-child who dares to sit behind the desk in the Oval Office. The Times is reporting that Donny Boy chose all options.
He made a serious mistake by assassinating Major General Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top military leader.
Protests demanding revenge against the United States are taking place across Iran, and the nation’s leaders are promising a serious form of retaliation.
It was Trump’s choice to end the nuclear agreement with Iran negotiated by John Kerry and agreed to by President Obama. One of Ronald Reagan’s top negotiators during the agreement with Russia in the late 1980’s called the agreement “extremely favorable to the United States.” Trump lied, as usual, claiming that it was a dangerous and unsatisfactory agreement. Today we may be facing another unwinnable war in the Middle East.
When Trump stood before the cameras and lied about the attacks, he did not appear to be confident. Trump has zero understanding about military operations. He was a draft dodger during the Vietnam War and his life of luxury and privilege prevented him from knowing anything about life in the real world.
I find it hard to believe that millions of voters were ignorant enough not to know the truth about Trump. He failed at everything he has done in life. His low level of intelligence made him a tool for foreign leaders. A lot of money and a little flattery from the Saudi Royal family and Russia saved his business interests and guaranteed that he “owed” them in the future. As your illegitimate president he is paying his debts.
I ask all of you near my age; do you approve of your sons, daughters, grandsons or granddaughters engaging in another war in the Middle East?
Republicans have earned reputations as fiscal failures and placing our nation in unwinnable wars for at least two decades. If you believe their lies and vote for them, you are harming our nation and those you love. It is your duty to vote on November 3, 2020.
