White House briefing for bipartisan congressional leaders on Iran tension

The top four congressional leaders of two parties were invited to the White House on Thursday for a confidential briefing following the downing of a US surveillance drone by Iran. Also in attendance are the heads of Congress Armed Services and intelligence committees. The Pentagon called the Iranian claim that the drone penetrated Iranian air space “false” and said the drone was provocatively attacked in international waters. President Donald Trump commented later that the attack was a mistake. “Someone loose and stupid shot the drone.” He added that it would be different if “US personnel were involved not a machine.”

      You and your pedophile name sake are far too yellow thru and thru to try and back that up. Just go ahead and send a half dozen of your finest fighter jets with bombs screaming to either carrier group in the vacinity. You won’t wake up to see what happens if you go to sleep that night.

        Hiding behind the hostages and threatening to irradiate the women and children is your entire game.

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
    and all Adelson’s horses,
    and all of Saban’s men and Hillary,
    couldn’t put Kahanist Israel together again.

    Which was a very good thing

      Netanyahu and the Neocons were busted over false flagging the US into the Iraq War, tried to lie Obama into War in Syria, and are now are getting SO BUSTED with their transparent and desperate attempts false flagging the US into War with Iran to save the Kahanist Israeli Apartheid, as it begins it’s dissolution into 1P1V1S, which is inevitable given what Gantz is calling the ‘Total Kahanist Khaos’

    Wonder what else the Houthis have that they can throw at the Gulf States? What else is being supplied them? And with the S-400s that Turkey has, the Turks might finally go after the Kurds without as much concern over US air intervention.

    We trust Trump’s instincts as a man of peace. Quite probably, this latest prima facie irrational mullah-dullah provocation stems directly from treasonous “advisories” transmitted to Teheran by Hanoi John Kerry, MzBill, and Benedict Bararack Gangrenous– the latter in particular a vile anti-Semite, black-racist Farrakhanist; a taqiyya Muslump, “red diaper” Marxisant quota-baby, concerned solely to line his reptilian nest with tens-of-millions transmitted via Saudi Wahabist al-Walid bin Talal and arch-subversive, crypto-fascist George Soros’ lurking-menace camarata.

    If Rats’ had any slightest ability, character, integrity, their Clown Car field might seem mildly amusing. As it is, these degenerate hypsters will do and say anything whatever to this country’s disadvantage… but our sense is, the public’s onto ’em.
