U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton requested the Pentagon to provide Washington with military options to strike Iran after three mortars launched by Iran-affiliated militants fell near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
The incident occurred in early September. No one was wounded, as the shells fell in an open lot, but the event apparently spurred Washington to discuss the possibility of a military response.
“It definitely rattled people,” a former senior White House official was quoted as saying. “People were shocked. It was mind-boggling how cavalier they were about hitting Iran.”

his whole pattern is “can’t we MOAB them? no? okay then let’s try peace”: it happened with Pyongyang, it happened with Damascus, it happened with Caracas, good money’s that it happened with Riyadh, and I’ve probably forgotten 3-4 other regimes
he’s fused hawk and dove into a whole new sort of pigeon, and the GOP’s gonna pick this up in the 20s and 30s

And, just like the old days, I can sing along, remembering just about EVERY note.
And, just like a good ole war mongering, napalm snorting, D ick thrashing, soldier launching machine, this piece of festering bowel excretion is ready to hide behind the commander in chief.
I loathe that Mo Fo so.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

This is just the best!
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

Once he canceled the nuclear agreement, military options became much more likely. Seeking military options is, therefore, hardly surprising.

National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.
