    Pompeo to discuss efforts versus Iran with Saudi crown prince - Reuters

    [​IMG]

    Pompeo calls attacks on Saudi facilities ‘act of war;’ Trump orders more Iran sanctions

    ———

    Trump order some more sanctions? Hilarious. Those have shown to work.

    The only one that could get a negotiated agreement out of Iran was President Obama. And that was because he had the help of the rest of the entire world.

    But who wants to help Trump? Who can trust anything he says. He’s a liar about everything. Our only friends right now are North Korea and Russia. Fat Lotta good that’ll do.

    The thing that makes me curious, is that why is Pompeo calling this an act of war? Nothing that the US has was attacked, only things in Saudi.

    Is Saudi now part of America, and we now have to defend them too? Then why in the hell are we selling them arms and aircraft when they are expecting us to clean up their mess? I thought you conservatives were all about America, and screw everyone else.

    Attack on oil impact all countries dependent on it hence it’s an act of war in Pompeo’s mind.

    Sorry, but for me as an American to call it an act of war, American property or material needs to be attacked first.

    It's an act of war against an ally by a mutual enemy. Just how thick are you?

    It does not mean it's an act of war against the US.

    Look at Kuwait? Sometimes an attack on an ally is an act of War. IDK. Above my pay grade.

    What Saddam did to Kuwait was an invasion. Way more than just an attack.
    And we had negotiated mutual protection agreements with Kuwait. It was our obligation to drive Saddam out. And Bush Senior was smart. He stopped at the border and didn’t invade the country.

    So should we go it alone? How do you think that’ll work out going it alone over in the Middle East? We don’t have allies anymore. Trump got rid of them. Our only allies now are North Korea and Russia.

    We are not invading Iran, so just stop the silly nonsense.

    What will happen is something will go wrong with Iran nuclear reactor and Israel will be smiling and winking at Saudi Arabia...

    Only George W. Bush thought it was smart to invade a country with no real plan after getting rid of it dictator...

    Obama was the drone President, so he would have shot a few rockets at a rebel base in Yemen...

    Trump will let Israel do the dirty work and you will be complaining that Trump should have invaded Iran...
