Looks like two can play the assassination game.

This is probably why most civilized countries have policies against political assassinations.

I'll bet Trump is offended it isnt higher!

Nobody in their right mind think they could kill the guy and not get caught to get the $3M.

Is it considered as taxable income?

5 ( +6 / -1 )

$3M isn't enough to disappear or hide in a sewer under the grassy knoll for hours.

Given Iran's reported to be having money problems, what's the likelihood Iran's partner and big brother Russia's chipping in? Or does Putin think having Trump as president (impeached) is still the best thing for him and his Eurasian Economic Union.

Wouldn't that be nice to see. Would that apply to the assassination of Boris Nemstov? Or do Putin supporters claim 'can't prove it', 'the west is worse' and/or 'the CIA did it'.

Tehran insists it has never sought nuclear arms and never will, saying its nuclear work is for research and to master the process to generate electricity.

I don't believe a word Tehran says about not wanting nuclear arms. Tehran wants nuclear weapons in order to first threaten it's neighbors, and then to threaten western governments. The Obama/Biden/Kerry deal only slowed Tehran's efforts for a short time. Considering that Tehran needed time to complete the production stages for their nuke program anyway, Obama/Biden/Kerry only succeeded in removing sanctions against Tehran.

Now some moron from the Kerman province is offering $3 million to prove that he as stupid as a stoned goat, and twice as brave. I suspect that many in Hollyweird would jump at the chance to play the character who collects on Hamzeh's offer, as long as they themselves didn't actually have to get their manicured nails dirty.

So Trump is a Russian puppet, and Trump does everything Russia wants, but now Russia wants to assassinate Trump? I don't think your Russophobic narrative makes much sense anymore.

Liberals should be shocked and horrified by such a thing and actively denounce it.

But as usual, in full support of dictators and terrorists.

So they want to be like America. Got it.

Trump's aggressive assassination of Soleimani has consequences.

I once saw a young boy poke a stick at a hornet's nest.....the hornets eventually started to come out and the boy ran away very quickly......not too far from the nest was a mom with her baby having a picnic.....the hornets stung the baby and the mom......now I ask you who's to blame.....the Hornets or the boy???

If Trump drops dead from clogged arteries does McDonalds get the 3 Mil ??

CrazyJoe - Trump's aggressive assassination of Soleimani has consequences.

Iranian general Soleimani long standing aggression against Iran's neighbors, and the west, certainly had consequences. The general probably should have stayed in Iran instead of setting his boots on his chosen battlefield of Iraq.

I doubt any country in the Americas feels threatened by US nukes. That includes Venezuela and Cuba, BTW. And I doubt any NATO countries, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, feel threatened either.

Heck, Canada is part of NORAD - an early warning system for polar attacks in North America.

How do you prove it was you, and how do you collect?

You take out their #2. Your not even at war with Iran... How would America react in return to such an event?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

This worries me. Perhaps US intelligence will carry it out, and put all the blame on some patsy, who will suddenly have Iranian-linked stuff on his PC...

Not as far-fetched as it sounds. Remember, JFK also collided with the CIA.

Ah, yes, but did he collude with them? ;8)

0 ( +0 / -0 )

What a dumb idea. USD 3M could probably by enough Republican votes in the Senate to get rid of him.

I said collided. And I don´t think assassination is funny.

Also aggression against Iran anti-regime protesters. That said, I disagree with the US drone assassinations on principle, regardless who does it.

WilliB, re collided/colluded, apologies. I mistook your meaning.
