While being very busy on the golf course being 'God's appointed saviour of the world', the Chump now reckons (incorrectly, of course) he had a hand in the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Abiy Ahmed ("Mummy- they didn't give it to me!!"). Unfortunately his amazing diplomatic efforts with NK now appear to have failed.

Woody, I suspect MCAS won’t be needed in space and the astronauts get a very expensive type conversion course so we can but hope the clowns & idiots have 2 less considerations as they sketch on the back of the foolscap envelope? That pun unintended but I left it in anyway.

At least, it doesn't look like he is old enough to vote yet! :))

I do give him credit - he displays the correct level of intelligence for a Chumper too.

His response to the question was very politically shrewd and diplomatic! :-\

I hope for Alabama's sake they believe the Chump on climate change. It's a bit like religion, really.

Talk about chaos

"Asked on CBS’s Face the Nation if there had been a specific or tangible threat, Esper said: “I didn’t see one with regard to four embassies.”

Ah come on - he's only the Defence Secretary - what would he know?

The young Chumper does a near perfect impersonation of The Cheetos Man. He can't speak in complete sentences either. Not even with a teleprompter.

What did you expect Boac?. Cheetos Man has an Iranian General assassinated for reasons he can't say in public, so he has to lie, again. He lies about anything and everything, so the reasonable position is to assume anything he says is a lie, until proven otherwise.

But, Sat, remember that it is not 'Fake News', just lies.

Seems to me that President Trump's response to Iran's need to save face, not escalating but showing restraint was apt and reduced tensions. Deft 3D chess. Now Iran is dealing with internal unrest and another rack of sanctions. Win-win.

Taking out the chief of Iranian terror operations on Iraqi soil was clearly in President Trump's remit. Actually I would welcome Iraq's kicking the US out. Sunnis fighting Shias, not our soldiers, warms my heart.

That would, indeed be a good start.

The English in their way are also culpable, as are we all as human beings. For you Mr Ben, running at the head of an empire, like you post intelligence Americans seem to want, is a difficult thing. Ask the the ghost of the Emperor Decius...

So what comes next? I predict another Iranian atrocity followed by a US response, maybe even a shock and awe.

There'll be another 911, when everyone has calmed down and least expects it. "They" ain't going to give up.

There may be Ex. But what choice do we have eecept to fight it, always? The ideology of Islam has to be defeated - us vs. them. Our side doesn't have a killing ideology but their's does. Its expressions of Islam that produces red blood in streets around the world daily. Hopefully the civilized people of the world will muster the will to eliminate this scourge.

Need for a natural disaster of epic proportions, major war or global epidemic.
It would appear that this has been considered, perhaps not implicitly, but if someone has to go we will generally agree that it's not us.

How are you going to keep your MIC busy when you have killed off everyone else?
