"WASHINGTON — He heard from his generals and his diplomats. Lawmakers weighed in and so did his advisers. But among the voices ringing in President Trump’s head was that of one of his favorite Fox News hosts: Tucker Carlson.

While the president’s national security advisers were urging him to order a military strike against Iran in retaliation for shooting down an unmanned drone, Mr. Carlson in recent days had told Mr. Trump that responding to Tehran’s provocations with force was crazy. The hawks did not have Mr. Trump’s best interests at heart, he said. And if he got into a war with Iran, he could kiss goodbye to getting re-elected.

However much weight that advice may or may not have had, the sentiments certainly reinforced the doubts that Mr. Trump himself harbored as he navigated his way through one of the most consequential foreign policy decisions of his presidency. By his own account, the president called off the “cocked & loaded” strike on Thursday night with only 10 minutes to spare to avoid the deaths of 150 people."

********

Fucking childish decision-making process. Our peace is held hostage to the whims of an imbecile obsessed with Fox News.

sounds more believable than Trumps story (which are always false)

recall he shut down the govt in December after Fox News critcism, backing out of a deal he had already agreed to

changed:

thinking people can't trust this administration at all

our allies can't trust this administration at all

even Trump supporters shouldn't trust our intel community given he claims they've been wrong on Russia, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Iran, etc... plus there's those deep state/coup people...

an amoral unethical uninformed mentally-ill total bullshit artist child is leading the nation

The neocons have chosen the Iranian dissident group MEK as their candidate. Literally the only group they could have picked, that are hated by Iranians in Iran and abroad as traitors for joining Saddam during the war with Iraq. MEK ideology is the fusion of Islamism with marxism, like mixing AIDS with Cancer.

Ahmad Chalabi had a bigger chance of success in Iraq than the MEK would have in Iran.

Does MEK still pull shit in Iran? I know they had a really in DC the other day, but other than that their name hasn't really rung out lately.

Anyway, the takeaway that I'm getting from all this is that Tucker Carlson is a hero and a patriot. Thank you, Tucker.

On the issue of Iran, I support the president no matter what he decides. I trust he will do the right thing and the rest of you should trust him as well.

Ever since 2003 it has been dead quiet, even before that Iran was alot of talkin. What has changed is their benefactor, it used to be Saddam, not according to rumors it is the Saudis now.

I have seen how they operate from here in Sweden and elsewhere, they pay for trips to different cities, it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from :) Just to bolster the numbers at the rallies. I know this second had from actual Kurds and Arabs who have gone. You know you get a paid weekend trip to DC (Paris here) and all you have to do is attend the rally *shrugs*. I try to tell the Kurds atleast, you know Saddam used these people to kill you, right?

So whatever numbers they get for these rallies and events they have, probably alot of free loaders :)

MEK was resettled into an Albanian village a couple years, with lots of support from the US government. Rudy Guiliani paid their compound a visit. Shit's wild.

Yea, all 3000? And those are the persona non grata from Iraq, the die hard nutballs. Let's see how long Albania thinks that US/Saudi money is worth the trouble.
