    An admission of defeat.

    It’s hard to bomb the poorest country in the hemisphere on behalf of apartheid Zionism.

        Yes, David. You are smiling about killing 3d world country individuals. Good on you. Go Jews! That is why the world loves your culture!

          Who cares about the “world” ? survival is a priority number 1. Loving or hating our culture is irrelevant.

    Kahanists are Jewish H*tlerites according to the authoritative Encyclopedia Judaica, and there policies, such as the Clean Break Plan and Wars (Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, attempts on Iran, etc) are Kahanist endeavors of Netanyahu/Neocons in America.

    Neocons are Kahanists, Netanyahu is a Kahanist, and their aggressive Trotskyite/Global War is the warmaking wing of their Jewish H*tlerite Kahanism, the business end of their ‘Raised Fist in the Star of David’

      Why is a Jewish H*tlerite like Kristol or these others allowed on MSNBC, NYTimes, WAPO or any reputable news organization? Why is not Kristol identified and shamed over his role in pushing the US into Iraq and attempts on Iran? How will Kristol or other Jewish H*tlerites every get Red Lines painted on them and stopped if they are not systematically outed?

    This is an good chance for the proud Iran to provide a lot less of a support to the Houthi rebels and so get a heavy say in any negotiations with Trump and (most important!) win the hearts of the whole Europe.
    Vive l’Iran libre et indépendant!

    UAE is not willing to support what the Jews are doing with the Help of Trump and the officially accepted murderers from Saudi Arabia. Correct. Don’t you think so?

    No, I think not. More likely the White House hasn’t yet decided how the US will respond. Balance of terror, that sort of thing. Looks like the Gulf States are doing what Trump is doing. Feint, parry, jab, move forward, move back. But the Gulf States don’t have enough firepower or population to conduct sustained military operations. Perhaps Trump will convince the Ayatollah that a golf course overlooking the Straits is just the thing. Could work. He tries to build them everywhere else. Who knows? Isn’t he just irresistible?

    Yemen’s Houthis Youthful Servants backed by Iran’s IRGC Shiia Masters Thugs are seeing the End of the Iranian Regime. UAE can do as it Pleases as Arabia gained New Allies during G-20 in China, Japan, India and Pakistan. The World Knows the Ayatollah is Dying without a Rising Future and is Impotent Today!
