  1. I see a parallel with the Khashoggi assassination at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, in that Khashoggi was lured to the consulate and then easily captured and killed, apparently to embarrass MBS. Soleimani’s killing seems to be an identical MO. I think Trump is just the front man and had nothing to do with it. What amazes me is how a man can allow himself to be so totally used. Oh, and will he be re-elected? As Gordon says, no doubt about that.

  2. Brilliant article
    US foreign policy Donald Trump’s rant against Iran is the howl of a dying empire by Simon Jenkins
    As the president slurred ritualised abuse of Iran and pleas to NATO, we saw the US’s days as world hegemon dribbling away.
    Even Trump’s Republican ally Mike Lee called the Iran briefing “the worst briefing I’ve seen – at least on a military issue – in my nine years” in the Senate.

  3. I am not a fan of Trump but the alternative was the certified psychopath Hillary–what will be the alternative in 2020? A sodomite small-town mayor? He works for Bibi, just like the rest of our government.

    • He would never admit to it either. He’s never admitted to making a mistake or for the crimes he’s committed.

  4. Energy dependency of the world on oil is the key to the world wide control mechanism.Food production and many other things depend on this- No free energy or other energy source is allowed because the can´t put a meter on it to suck us dry.

  5. So if Pres. Trump had not backed down, had not “been humiliated” but had escalated the situation with more bombing, would that have played any better with Mr. Duff? No. Since I am utterly opposed and terrified of war I am just happy that no matter what it is called it did not escalate. I really do not want any more Americans joining the 64,000 already over in that area, available to be killed.

    • If you don’t count the 167 collateral I guess it didn’t escalate. That is going to be hard on family and friends.

  6. You and all the folks that make Veterans Today what it is , including all the International eyes and ears are in your own League. You came home – regrouped and carried on the dignity of a Veteran that has made a Very big difference in this World. Thanks VT.

  7. Thank you Gordon for an excellent analysis. You are correct, tRump is a clown.
    Unfortunately the Democratic party has nothing to offer in this next election to counter Trump. They will be simply just the Democratic version. The only hope is with Tulsi Gabbard and she has about as much chance as Ron Paul had.
    I remember when George McGovern ran for president, who managed to stomp the party bosses like Meaney and Daley only to lose to Nixon because the Reps spread so much fear mongering. As a result thousands more American boys died in Viet Nam and a million more Vietnamese were needlessly murdered thanks to the evil mind of Henry Kissassinger and Nixon.
    We have tRump and Pence, both are clowns, Pence being the worst of the two, suffering from the mental illness of Xtian zionism.

    • How did Ron “BOO! The dollar lost 98% of it’s value” Paul vote on Afghan War/Emperor Powers?

      Only one person had the courage and integrity to vote no:

      Democrat Barbara Lee.

    • Well, the dollar has lost 98% of its value,or you don’t understand what fiat currency is. Ron Paul is correct and he’s been correct about a number of things including predicting the housing bubble bursting in 2007.

  8. I heard you say that Trump the Tranny wants to kill a million people. I agree. I doubt nukes exist but if they do, why does he not drop one in the ME and declare martial law in the US and declare himself king?

    • Why not? He’s already declared himself the king of israel. He has promised to sign red flag laws and has outlawed any criticism of that rogue zionist state.

  9. Speaking Realistically Trump is the gofer or the errand boy ,,,,,,, Gordon in a Military setup can you expect a Civilian to be more than just another errand boy ? ……. I hardly think so the way old in service and Always there Military Officers Will Always Always Shut up ” Civilian dorks ” like Trump ……..

    • AND YES Trump Will Always Always Do Like He’s Told …….. OR Just like George W Bush He Will Wind up With a Black Eye and even after the Beating You Still gotta do the same as You’re Told …… George W Bush said that He got The Black Eye When he Fell on the Table While eating Pretzels …….. weird that the Table fall dudn’t crack open his forhead but just gave him a Black Eye …….

    • Bottom line is ” it’s just a Job that You Agreed to Do ” and since You’re being Paid for it so better Pucker up and Just Do It ………

    • honestly I’m thinking that You Guys can’t Stomach the Bottom Line TRUTH that I Bring You , You’re NOT a Sport ……..
