The Unobeyable Order has been Obeyed.

General Soleimani has been killed by a drone strike ordered by MOM aka POTUS.The ostensible reason was that he was plotting imminent strikes at key targets.He had been doing that for 40 years.What figure can Iran target to reach equivalence? No one,without starting a hot war.So it is likely that all Americans will now be at risk throughout the world. I believe that Trump made a political move to neutralize the effects of the impeachment.The nuclear treaty is now dead.Enrichment of uranium will accelerate

The Iranians are now free to unleash their considerable computer skills to attack our electric grill.This may not be the best time to buy an electric self driving automobile.

  1. Daedal2207 tells us that General Soleimani has been “plotting imminent strikes at key targets” … “for 40 years”. A rational mind is right to wonder why such a destructive individual was allowed to cause widespread death and destruction for an extended period. Why is such behavior tolerated? I suppose that for many, as long as it is others who are suffering, why bother? For others, it is a fear of retribution that allows this life-destroying behavior to thrive. And for another mindset, they want Iran and its West-killing agendas to be successful. This includes many of the Islamic faith who believe that their God rewards in an afterlife those who perish performing the act of killing infidels. And then, there are the self-centered pacifists who would not personally harm any form of human life, even as they watch innocents being beheaded by killers striving to advance an agenda that would, except for a chosen few, enslave all of humanity.

    So, because of this mix of motives nothing was done to rid humanity of the Soleimani scourge. That is, until now. We have finally acquired a leadership that understands, and also has the courage to address directly, the threat to humanity created by an aggressive Iran striving to possesses nuclear weapons. Some minds (too many?) seem to resist what should be an obvious lesson of history: Sometimes a war is necessary in order to save lives.

    Those who claim that we can avoid non-ending “wars” need to recognize that the faiths of Islam (other faiths as well) and the laws of physics regarding the maximizing of life saving resources are in conflict. A bottom-line reality: If we want human life to best flourish, we must constantly “war” against resource-diminishing beliefs.

    1. American Foreign Policy Is Broken. Suleimani’s Killing Proves It.

      Jonathan Stevenson is a senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies and the managing editor of Survival. He was the director for political-military affairs, Middle East and North Africa, on the National Security Council from 2011 to 2013.

      1. The New York Times provided the headline:
        “American Foreign Policy Is Broken, Soleimani ‘s Killing Proves It”.

        For fundamental and easy to understand reasons presented in my earlier posting the headline could more truthfully be written:
        “American Foreign Policy Is (finally) Clarifyingly Sound, Soleimani’s Killing Proves It”.

  2. Absolutely my first thought. Trump, himself, is a killer – unwitting or not – willing to put others at grave risk to divert attention from his own constitutional and legal wrongdoings (of a lifetime!).

    Because they take no other position, the cowardly, without-moral-substance Republicans continue to stand with him and are terrified to take another stand. Party Above Everything Else! Are they able to see anything else? Are there no decent Republicans left?
