U.S. INFORMS IRAQ WE ARE LEAVING (update: just kidding)

UPDATE: It’s all just one big misunderstanding.

It appears we did a 180 on this topic based upon Trump’s statement last week. After Iraq voted to expel US forces from the country, Trump told them to pay us back for the billions spent in the country, and how he’d harangue them with unbelievable sanctions. Well, here is a new approach: a letter to Iraq informing them of our planned departure.

In other news, Iran stated that after Soleimani was in the ground, on Tuesday, their campaign of revenge would commence. Back in the real world on Wall Street, no one cares. We don’t give a shit and stocks are sharply higher. They were down 200 at the open, but now they’re higher.

I would argue that the premium for WTI should be deflated, now that we’re leaving Iraq and Iran only wants to quarrel with us in court. This could of course all change rapidly, and stocks could once again tread lower. I am prepared to deal with that too. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look like the big crash is happening just yet and World War 3 has been delayed.

Or has it?

    Great news! Trump was just playing 20D chess all along? What might the war-with-Iran neocons do to prevent this?

    Hopefully Trump drops a bomb on his new resting ground for good measure!

        Your daddy is Obama. His daddy was the brotherhood. The culture of Iran is Cyrus the great not Islamic clerics. You are mindless sycophant spewing the same position as the country that chants death to America at a fucking funeral. You are the problem.

            Indeed. But every American should be aware that many Israelis, and some American Rapturetards, see Trump as a Cyrus who is fulfilling biblical prophecy.

      The only shit show is the mush brains around here believing everything the pro sharia media tells them too.

      All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

        Bingo. The Mullahs in Iran are powerless to stop the US. And their culture is one of intolerance, depravity and pedophilia. Their men are fucking sandal wearing cowards.

        moneybagz and wolfdaddy,

        Generals understand unintened consequences and secondary effects. Fools react emotioanlly without thinking.

        “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

        “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”

    In my crystal ball I see a General who is about to be cashed out of the service.

    But don’t worry, he’ll get full retirement pay and benefits including medical/dental for life. Retirement pay for B.Gen is about $12,000 per month.

    And the General can go to college for free.

    After he passes his widow will then start receiving his DFAS annuity and TriCare for her entire life.
